Get a 4.3-inch GPS with lifetime maps and traffic for $99.99

The TomTom VIA 1405TM GPS comes with free lifetime traffic and map updates. (Credit: Staples) Just yesterday I was discussing the merits of standalone nav systems with my brother-in-law Charles (who’s as savvy a cheapskate as there ever was–and I mean that in the best possible way). I said, “Hey, look, here’s a GPS with […]

Hu says US, China cooperation key to economy

(AP)  HONOLULU — Chinese President Hu Jintao (hoo jin-tow) says growing economic instability and uncertainty around the globe mean it’s more important for China and the United States to increase their cooperation. Jintao and President Barack Obama spoke at the start of a meeting during an Asia-Pacific economic summit in Hawaii. The Chinese president says […]

Euro rises against dollar as Greece calls off vote

(AP)  NEW YORK — The euro is rising against the dollar after Greece’s prime minister abandoned his plan to put a financial rescue deal to a public vote. The reversal helped allay concerns that Greece could delay or reject a European plan aimed at containing that region’s the debt crisis. European leaders agreed on the […]

Get a 32-inch LCD HDTV for $229 shipped

First up, some cool news. Today marks the debut of CNET Marketplace, a new section that might as well be called Cheapskateplace. It’s home to all kinds of deal goodness, including online and local stuff, plus CNET exclusives (like the one in today’s Bonus Deal). Don’t worry: the Cheapskate blog you know and love isn’t going […]

Get a Logitech MK710 wireless mouse and keyboard for $34.99

Never underestimate the value of a good mouse and keyboard. The ones that come bundled with any desktop are almost sure to be flimsy, low-end products, the kind that can diminish your computing experience. I’ve had the same high-quality Logitech combo for as long as I can remember; it’s lasted me through my last three […]

Refurbished Nook Color down to $139 shipped

This is an update of a deal I posted last month. Yowza! The refurbished Barnes & Noble Nook Color, already a steal when it was selling for $ 179 and then $ 169, is now a runaway gotta-have-it steal. While supplies last, Overstock has the refurbished Nook Color for $ 138.57, plus $ 1 for shipping. […]

Get an Epson Home Cinema 6100 1080p projector for $699

Today’s deal is a little weird. Awesome, but weird. Fry’s has the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 6100 1080p projector for $ 699, plus $ 10.44 for shipping. It’s new, not refurbished, making this the best deal I can recall seeing for a 1080p projector. What’s the weird part? The Fry’s site says it’s “available for preorder,” […]

Get an 8GB desktop RAM kit for $24.99

Here’s your chance to score a pair of high-speed 4GB RAM modules for just $ 25. This is an update of a deal I posted a few months back. A RAM upgrade is a great way to make your PC run faster, especially if you run a lot of programs simultaneously. More RAM means less […]

Get an Asus U36SD ultraportable laptop for $699.99

Ever since getting some hands-on time with my buddy Doug’s MacBook Air, I’ve been itching to ditch my clunky, heavy, slowpoke laptop in favor of a super-thin, super-light ultraportable. Why not just buy an Air, you ask? As a card-carrying cheapskate, I just can’t justify the “Apple tax”–no matter how cool the product may be. […]

Get an 8GB Eye-Fi ProX2 SDHC card for $49.99

The 8GB Eye-Fi ProX2 normally sells for $ 99.99. I’ll just come right out and say it: Eye-Fi cards are overpriced. They’re incredibly convenient, no doubt about it, and I’ll never use another camera without one, but the prices are just outta whack. Today, they’re a little less whack-y. While supplies last, Sellout.woot has the […]
