When it comes to the subject matter of this website (the Rival Crock Pot), there are some questions that are going to be a better fit to tackle than others. That is what I have tried to do here (hopefully satisfactorily, lol) on various occasions. These include such queries as
What kind of Crock Pot is best for my needs?
What do Crock Pot users think about a particular Crock Pot?
Where is the best place to shop to get a good deal on a new Rival Crock Pot?
Where can I go to get the Rival Crock Pot replacement parts that I need to keep my trusty crock pot cooking?
Like I said, I have addressed some of these kinds of questions before, and this time out I would like to take a look at the question of where one should maybe go to find a better (if not the best) price for a new Crock Pot slow cooker. Now let me just say up front that I realize that we all have our opinions about where to go to get the best deals on things and I am not at all under any delusion that my ideas about this are better than anyone else's. I am just serving up an idea that has been slowly cooking in my head that could potentially save a shopper some money not once but twice on things that they were maybe going to buy online anyway.
We all like to go to various websites and comparison shop for items that we already have an interest in buying, right? And of course we all have our favourite sites to go to to do that comparison shopping; One site that I have gone to a few times before when comparing prices on a brand new Crock Pot is shopping.com, I find that the site usually offers a decent cross section of items/merchandise, and often at competitive prices - although I would not blindly recommend that one take a price there as definitely being the lowest. Actually, for the Crock Pot, I think that sometimes it is hard to beat the official Rival Crock Pot site for prices on a variety of crock pot appliances and other merchandise, such as replacement parts, accessories and cook books. What I do strongly recommend however, is that after you have found what you believe to be the best price on an item - regardless of whether or not it is a crock pot appliance, accessory or replacement parts, a toaster, a microwave or a ... dog house, is that you head on over to a site called Mr. Rebates and try searching their listings for the same item and see if you find it at an even lower price. Their listings are just for new unused merchandise so I am not suggesting that you are going to find prices like those that you might find on a site such as Amazon or Ebay, but again remember we are talking about new unused stuff here that is still considered covered by a retailer's warranty. As well, you are not purchasing from Mr. Rebates, you are buying the merchandise from the retailer whose products they have shown you, such as Best Buy, Toys R Us, Sears, etc, so the warranties are the warranties on the items are the ones from those retailers and not Mr. Rebates. Anyway, keeping with our Crock Pot slow cooker example, the last time I searched on Mr Rebates for Crock Pot prices I was surprised to see that on many listed Rival brand slow cookers that Mr Rebates carried prices that were around $5+ lower than the price for the same product on Crockpot.com or Shopping.com.
But it gets better. If you find a lower price you will save on top of that because the Mr. Rebates site offers a cash back rebate of up to 30% on almost everything that they offer for sale through their site even though they are really only acting as the middleman, hooking you up with the established online retailer.
A nice thing about their rebate policy is that they only require that you earn at least $10 in rebates before thay will let you cash out but that is not as high an amount as you might expect from a site like this. (I have seen rebate sites require that you earn twice that amount or more before being able to cash out)Right now, the site is even offering a $5.00 registration bonus, which means that you should only need to earn $5 more before you can cash out. I don't know how long they are going to keep offering this bonus though so I would sign up now if you think that you might be taking advantage of this site in the future. And of course it is free to sign up. (and who doesn't like 'free'?) You can browse without being a member, you just won't be able to earn any cash back without becoming a member, that's all.
If you think that Mr. Rebates might be worth a visit, you can find a link to it just below this post, for your convenience.
Okay, I have finished teaching you how to fish for some slow cooker savings, so now go and catch yourself some decent crock-pot deals!
