In many ways, there's never been a better time be a consumer in America. Thanks to the Internet, we can look up the price of any product within seconds and see where to get the best deal. As a result, traditional brick-and-mortar stores are trying harder than ever to get us to walk into their stores. Coupons, sales, extra special values we can't find anywhere else — all of these incentives put power back into the hands of the consumer and give us new, better ways to find products at better and better prices.
And yet, almost half of all Americans are still living paycheck to paycheck and don't have enough saved in the bank to cover an unforeseen emergency.
