Welcome to Noisy Shopper

We are introducing yet another new feature, the Noisy Shopper. Will it stick? features are like new TV shows, they get canceled? We blog, you decide! Let us know if you like it or not!

The Noisy Shopper replaces the "Bargain Hunters Corner" box that was at the top of the main column. It has been replaced by the "Noisy Headlines" segment. But we don't want to disappoint fans of the Bargain Hunter's Corner, so we are introducing the Noisy Shopper.

And as an extra convenience for our readers, we have created a  special feed with all posts tagged "Noisy Shopper". This is a subset of our main feed, so if you subscribe to the main feed you will be receiving every single post. A good use of the additional feed is if you use an online news reader for the main feed, and use a desktop reader for the "Noisy Shopper" subset. Desktop readers are in general faster, so you can "get in" on any special sales before they go out of stock. One of the most popular families of stand-alone news-readers has switched to FREE for everyone. Newsgator offers readers for PC (FeedDemon), Mac (NetNewsWire), and Mobile (Newsgator Go!).

Okay, enough with the intros. How about some shopping? Empty your shopping carts, sharpen your credit cards, and get set!
