MANHATTAN BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2014) - Retail sales have been on the rise for two straight months and March marked the sharpest increase in nearly 2 years, according to The Commerce Department. As the summer shopping season approaches, consumers are looking for ways to stretch their dollar while they spend and many are already turning to DealScience.com, the one-stop shop for finding and comparing the best online deals. Developed by leading deal company DealBase Corporation, DealScience.com today reported that shoppers have used more than 800,000 coupons, saving them over five million dollars since the site launched late last year.

"Given our expertise in the deal space, we aren't surprised that DealScience.com is seeing such immediate traction with consumers," said David Hehman, board member of DealBase Corporation. "Shoppers have been looking for a better way to save and we're finally delivering one resource that compares all offers online, so users know they're finding the best deals."

The company has nearly doubled the number of retail brands it features and now offers more than 35-thousand customized shopping tips, a 75 percent increase quarter over quarter.

2. Many will Match It: Many of the biggest retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Kohl's, Target and Sears offer price-match guarantees and retailers like Fry's, Home Depot and Lowe's all offer 110 percent, so you can save more.
3. Don't Over-Pay: Before you make a purchase, be aware of stores that consistently offer deals, and therefore, where you should rarely pay full price. A few of these brands include Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kmart, Gap and Home Depot.
