RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Many of us like to shop, but don't want to deal with the headache of holiday crowds. A few simple clicks of the mouse can get you through this holiday season, but with millions of companies online, you could spend hours sifting through different sites trying to find the lowest price. 

PriceGrabber.com could be the answer. It touts itself as an industry innovator in online comparison shopping. This one stop shop combs every inch of the internet, scoping out the best prices on millions of different products. All you do is enter what you're looking for and you'll get a detailed list of sellers worldwide. 

That list includes prices, the cost of shipping and tax, then highlights what it believes is the best deal. It's an easy way to make sure you're getting the best bargain that's out there. 

PriceGrabber.com's gets its information from large traditional stores as well as smaller local merchants. And just like EBay, the buyer rates the seller based on the transaction, letting you know if you're dealing with a reputable company. 

And if it's on your list this year, it's on PriceGrabber's too. They'll compare electronics, large appliances, clothing, auto parts, you name it. One of this year's hot sellers is the Apple IPad. A Wi-Fi capable, 64 gig IPad ranges from $699 to $925. That's a $225 difference for the same product. 

If the price still seems steep, you can set your own target price and PriceGrabber will email you if it becomes available. Using PriceGrabber is absolutely free.
