Don’t you hate it when you have to unplug one appliance to plug something else into your power strip? Maybe you want to charge your phone and dry your hair at the same time—and sometimes that “strip” design isn’t so friendly, is it?
The company’s founder and CEO, Ben Kaufman, came to speak at our first ever ShopSmart summit earlier this year, and I was so impressed with his website that I made a note to include it in our annual shopping feature.
Over the next months, I kept collecting snippets about cool shopping sites I’d never heard of, and so did our contributing editor, Kenrya Rankin. The result is our huge online shopping roundup, “50 fabulous shopping sites,” on page 22 of our November issue, on sale now.
Funnily enough, Quirky.com is the first site you’ll read about. And one of the last is Amazon.com, the brainchild of Jeff Bezos, the keynote speaker at our SS summit. His site has gone so far beyond its beginnings as a virtual bookstore; read what’s new there, and at a few more of the big shopping sites. And learn more about 49 other sites you may not have heard of—but will want to click to immediately, we’re betting!
It’s a great place to start your holiday shopping, plus you’ll get great info to help you spot sales and stay safe online all year long. Happy shopping!
