Welcome to this HOT DEALS website, updated 2-3 times daily. Our goal is to show you only the hottest deals on the Internet. Only a few deals get posted each day, because we only post the deals that we deem to be “hot deals” after careful scrutiny by our editors. This site was created to help you get the most for your dollar, because we are tired of people constantly getting ripped off. This website is entirely non-profit, and the information herein is provided for informational purposes only. We will not accept any revenue from the traffic or clicks of our visitors, so as to not sway our decisions of which deals are truly hot enough to make it to this site. Please use these coupons and deals wisely, and at your own risk. If you wish to send an email or submit a hot deal to the Hot Deals Maniac, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

UPDATE on Maxtor 40GB hard drives: Did you recently buy a 40GB Maxtor hard drive? I did the EqualFooting $50-off deal to get a 40GB Maxtor hard drive for $110 shipped. If you did this too, you might want to check this out. An anonymous visitor wrote us this information:
I bought a Maxtor 40G hard drive from EqualFooting as you posted. Then I realize there is a $50 rebate if I also buy a Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 PCI Card. I checked out the FAQ and it says the card and drive do not have to be purchased at the same store or on the same day. So I am going to order a Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 PCI Card (list price $49.95) for free.

UPDATE on the Talkabout Plus radios from dSports.com: I finally found some info about the “Motorola Talkabout Plus” radios that are being sold on dSports.com (see yesterday’s post). Here is the product information from Motorola. Note that this product is really called “Talkabout Plus”, so the rebate form does not specify “Talkabout Plus” on the list of products valid for the rebate. Sorry, this offer was not as good as it seemed. Even still, $30 is not too too bad for a nice radio, even though the radio had been discontinued a while ago. Again, these are not the nice Talkabout 200’s or 250’s, but they were nice radios about a year ago.

Live election results: The U.S. election results are still being counted in some states, and recounted in Florida. The results of the state of Florida will decide who will be the next President of the USA. Here’s a quick little page I wrote to show a live summary of the votes and information about the “irregularities” in Florida. For further details about the election, visit CNN.com.
BestBuy.com – Memorex 800dpi mouse for $10 shipped
This appears to be a good computer mouse for $10, with free shipping.
BikeShop.com – $40 off $100, code: 14108
Amazon.com – $15 off $50 electronics, code: AMZN-ELEC-SRGE
SportsAuthority.com – $5 off $35, code: TSAD_535
dSports.com – HOT! – $20 off $50, free shipping
Take $20 off a purchase of $50 or more by using coupon code “ECENT1″ or “PENN02″. Choose ground shipping and you will be credited for the shipping costs! Coupons expire Dec 31.
dSports.com – Motorola Talkabout Plus 2-way radios for $20/ea
(UPDATE: this deal is incorrect, read below)
First, go to dSports.com.
Pick the color you want. Note that dSports has all colors at the same cost.
Add ONE radio to your shopping cart.
Add something small to your shopping cart to get you over $50, such as shoe laces or golf tees.
At checkout, use coupon code “ECENT1″ or “PENN02″. Total should be $30 for one radio. Note that it will say $5 for shipping, but on the final screen you may be credited $5 for the shipping cost, making shipping free!
Repeat these steps to place a seperate order for each radio that you want. Keep in mind that since these are 2-way radios, you must have at least two radios to get any use out of them.
Motorola has a $10 mail-in rebate for each radio, valid for up to 4 rebates. This should get you $10 for each radio that you bought.
At first glance, I thought these were Motorola Talkabout-250 radios, but closer inspection shows they are “Talkabout Plus” radios. I’ve never heard of “Talkabout Plus” radios, nor do I know the difference between these and the Talkabout-250’s. Perhaps these are the “Talkabout 200″ series, which I think were discontinued (er, replaced with the 250 model) around a year ago.
UPDATE (Nov 13): It looks like the rebate may not be valid with this item. The rebate form does not specify “Talkabout Plus” on it. Also, according to the product information page that I found, this item is 2 models older than the mainstream model, the 250. This is no longer a good deal, unless you are looking for cheap radios. I no longer endorse this deal.
HappyPetNet.com – free doggie biscuit every month
ReplayTV is better than TiVo: I compared ReplayTV with TiVo, and I found ReplayTV is better overall than TiVo. First off, ReplayTV normally costs about $200 more than a TiVo. However, TiVo charges a $10/mo fee for service or $200 for a lifetime service contract, while ReplayTV service is free with the unit. This puts both the ReplayTV and the TiVo at about the same cost to you. Since they are relatively the same cost, you might want to focus on their features. First off, when you sign up a TiVo for service (monthly or lifetime), the service is for a specific TiVo unit ONLY – meaning if you upgrade to a newer TiVo you will have to subscribe for service again. The two units have similar interfaces, but I found the ReplayTV to have a slightly better interface than TiVo, and ReplayTV seems a little easier to navigate and setup/modify recordings. TiVo just seems like it was designed for people who do not know how to operate a VCR. Although the two units have almost identical picture quality in their highest recording speed, the ReplayTV seems to be a bit better at its slowest setting than the TiVo slowest recording speed. Other advantages of the ReplayTV over the TiVo are a 30 second advance button (great for skipping commercials), ability to set specific days to record a show (like only record re-runs of the Simpsons on Mon-Thu), the ReplayTV can be turned off (TiVo cannot), ReplayTV is easier to customize recording options, and the ReplayTV runs a little quieter. However, one main advantage of the TiVo is a published TiVo hack which lets you add a second hard drive to any TiVo, thus doubling or tripling its storage capacity. You cannot add a second hard drive to a ReplayTV, however this forum reports that you can replace the hard drive in a ReplayTV with a larger one.
It is important to note that there are TWO ReplayTV’s out there – one is a Panasonic brand, the other is a ReplayTV brand. The Panasonic brand has Macrovision built-in, which is a very bad thing to have.

UPDATE on BestBuy 20% off coupon: A visitor said that he printed out the 20% off computer gaming products coupon from this site, and used it successfully. I tried it a few weeks ago, and it did not work for me. The visitor said he had a problem with the cashier, but the manager approved it. They did not question the fact that it was a copy/printout, he just said he downloaded it from the Internet.
Trade for The Patriot DVD at Electronics Boutique: Bring in any 2 DVDs (used or new, no promo copies), or 2 Playstation games, or 2 dreamcast games, or 2 N64 games to any Electronics Boutique store, and get “The Patriot” DVD for free! This is a good deal if you trade in cheap or terrible DVD’s or games.
(thanks to J. Troutt from FL for submitting this info to us)

Live election results: The U.S. election results are still being counted. The results of the state of Florida will decide who will be the next President of the USA. Here’s a quick little page I wrote to show a live summary of the votes that are currently being recounted. For further details about the votes, visit CNN.com.
UPDATE (2pm): Democrats will be asking for a hand-count of the votes in 4 Florida counties. Federal judge calls a hearing to address allegations of “voter irregularity” in West Palm Beach, FL.
Mercata.com – Pioneer DV434 Progressive Scan DVD Player for $260 or less
The Pioneer DV434 is one of the best high-end DVD players on the market. It supports progressive scan, and Pioneer DVD players allow you to play CD-R media in your DVD player. That means you can burn a VCD or audio CD on your computer, and play it in your DVD player. Most DVD players cannot read CD-R media.
As of 9am, Mercata has this great DVD player on Powerbuy for $337. This is not an incredible price for this DVD player, but if you are a new Mercata customer, you get 20% off bringing the cost down to around $269. The price will continue to drop as more people commit to buy. This Powerbuy ends Nov 11 at 10pm PST.
Remember, before buying electronics, always check PriceScan to see if you are getting a good deal.
Amazon.com – cheap color inkjet printer for $20
Amazon has the Canon BJC-2100 color inkjet printer for $84.54 with free shipping. Use promotion code AMZN-ELEC-SRGE to get $15 off your order. Canon has a $50 mail-in rebate. Note that the inkjet cartridges will probably cost more than the printer.

eStyle.com sells kids stuff. Get $20 off an order of $20 or more by using code MSTWENTY at checkout. Shipping can cost around $5.

Cambridge Soundworks – overstock clearance now on Ebay only
(thanks to M. Powell for submitting this deal to us)
It looks like Cambridge Soundworks/Hifi.com closed their “overstock clearance” stores, and now they are only selling these items on Ebay. Instead of paying full price for Cambridge Soundworks electronics, you might want to check out what they are auctioning on Ebay. Cambridge Soundworks makes great speakers and subwoofers. Click here to see all the auctions that Cambridge Soundworks/Hifi.com has on Ebay.
LavaWorld.com – HOT! – free lava lamp
You must fill out this form no later than midnight CST on Thursday, Nov 9.

Cisco.com – free alarm clock
(thanks to Irwan H. for submitting this deal to us)
Just fill out the survey before Dec 15.
Walmart.com – Playstation2 bundle for $439
Well, here’s another place to order a Playstation2 from. This bundle comes with the PS2, Madden 2001, Tekken Tag Tournament, and Ridge Racer V. The bottom of the page says that it ships in 1 to 2 business days, but I honestly doubt they have any in stock.
If you are still waiting for a Playstation2 from another vendor, now you can attempt to get one from Walmart.com, and once you get one just cancel your other backordered order(s) from other vendors. Just keep in mind that there are no hot deals on Playstation2’s because everyone wants one and the supply is so low.
UPDATE (12pm): It looks like they were in fact in-stock at midnight last night, but now they say “out of stock”. Oh well.
Bush & Gore stagger to the finish line: It’s midnight right now, and there is still no clear winner as to who will be the next president of the US. For the latest results and developments, a great place is CNN, and their live electoral votes summary.
Outpost.com – KEEP for $0.00
Uhh, I have no idea what this is, but it’s funny. You can order as many as you want by clicking the above link. Too bad I can’t afford it.
Tuesday, November 7, 2000 – Election Day USA
Pets.com to close it’s e-commerce site: According to the press release on the front page of their site, Pets.com will stop taking orders on Nov 9 at 11am PST.

Mushkin’s budget RAM is 128MB PC133 CAS-3 SDRAM for $79 with free shipping. Sure, their RAM costs a few dollars more than the generic stuff you can buy elsewhere, but Mushkin is rated as the best online store for PC memory.

Outpost.com – RED HOT! – good prices and free next-day shipping, incredible prices on great CD-R media!
(repost, with updated info)
Of all the online stores out there, Outpost is probably one of my favorite. They have just about everything in stock, and most products are shipped for FREE via next-day Airborne Express. Also, if you have any Flooz dollars, you can use them at this online store.
According to ResellerRatings.com, Outpost has one of the best ratings of all stores on the net.
Like I’ve said several times before, their Kingston CD-R media is some of the best quality I’ve seen to date, and they’re selling it for incredible prices! Here are some of the great prices on the high-quality CD-R media, all prices include FREE next-day shipping:

I highly recommend the Kingston Hypermedia brand. The CD-R’s are Silver/Blue branded media, and are great quality. The branding on the top is very light and hardly noticable.
Note, Outpost is not taking any more preorders for the Playstation 2 until around March.

This might be Mercata’s last Powerbuy for a ReplayTV in a while. This Powerbuy ends tonight at 10pm (PST). By the time the Powerbuy ends, the final price should be about $485.

And, ReplayTV has a $100 mail-in rebate, bringing the final total cost down to around $298. Unlike TiVo, ReplayTV service has no monthly fees; lifetime subscription is included with the unit. This personal video recorder will make it impossible to miss an episode of the Simpsons ever again!

yellow for $64.94
camouflage for $74.94
Free shipping. Each item listed above comes with ONE radio, so obviously you must have at least two to get any use out of them. Purchasing two of the black colors will run you $123.48, and add promotion code AMZN-ELEC-SRGE during checkout to get $15 off, bringing the purchase cost down to $108.48. And, Motorola has a $10 mail-in rebate for each radio, valid for up to 4 rebates, redeem two for a $20 rebate, bringing your grand total down to $88.48. This is a good deal on awesome two-way radios. I have used these radios personally to keep cars in contact while traveling along the road, or keeping people in contact during large, crowded outdoor events. They really do have a nice 2 mile range, and incredible battery life. Here are some reviews of the Motorola Talkabout-250 from Epinions.com, MountainZone.com, and SkiReview.com. Product information can be found on the Motorola site.
Personally, I feel that you cannot go wrong with any Motorola communications device. Motorola makes the best communications devices in the industry.
PhotoAlley.com – HOT! – great deals on digital cameras
(thanks to S. Baker from IL for submitting this hot deal to us)
They have great prices on digital cameras with free 2-day FedEx shipping. And until Election Day (Tuesday), get $100 off $600+, $50 off $400+, or $25 off $200+ orders. Also, for purchases over $300 you will get a $100 gift certificate for a two-night stay at a Hyatt hotel or resort. If you were planning to buy a mid to high end digital camera, especially a 3 megapixel one, this looks like the place.
Amazon.com – Panasonic FRS 2-way radio, two for $37
(thanks to Xing for submitting this deal to us)
Amazon has the Panasonic FRS KX-TR325S 2-way radio for $55.88. This is the newer KX-TR325S, not the 320. Although I don’t know anything about these Panasonic 2-way radios, they seem pretty comparable to the Motorola’s. Purchase two for $111.76, then apply promotion code AMZN-ELEC-SRGE to get $15 off, bringing your total down to $96.76 with free shipping. Then, Panasonic has a $30 mail-in rebate per item, which will bring you final total down to $36.76. Rebate expires June 30. Unfortunately, this item is currently out of stock, but keep checking Amazon if you really want these radios.
Chances are these are not as good as Motorola 2-way radios, but they’re far less expensive.
800.com – Video Essentials DVD for $24.94
This is an amazing DVD. It will help you calibrate your home theater system for obtaining the best possible audio and picture quality. If you spent more than $800 on your home entertainment system, this DVD will help you double its value! Designed for households with at least 32″ TV and surroundsound audio, this $25 DVD will help you get the most out of your entire audio/video systems. I paid over $35 for this DVD about a year ago, and it was well worth it even at that price. Search for this DVD on DVDPriceSearch.com and you’ll see that all other sites start at $35 for this DVD.
Acer – 64MB SDRAM proprietary RAM for $10
(thanks to D. Arthurs for submitting this deal to us)
This memory is proprietary for Acer Aceraspire computers only – I don’t think it will work with any other computer. This memory usually runs for $90+, so under $10 is a great deal.
NAPSTER to begin charging a fee to use the service: A portion of the Napster company has been bought by Bertelsmann AG, and together they plan to charge a fee for the Napster service. Bertelsmann owns BMG, and has a good relationship with record companies. According to a Napster press release, parts of Napster will remain free while other parts will be fee-based. I suspect that the free service will feature BMG artists. Since the announcement, Napster servers have been more swamped than ever before, averaging 6 to 9 terrabytes (6,000 – 9,000 GB) of music on the Napster network. This is a good time to exchange some MP3’s on Napster before they loose all their members by charging for service.
