If you're looking for a great selection in Halloween costumes, there's no better place than on the Internet. Some retailers have already started discounting their prices, so I searched five of the most popular sites for bargains.
Costume Express has already marked down many of its Halloween costumes.
Buy Costumes has its discount codes listed at the top of the page, so no one has to pay full price.
Bargains can also be found at Costume City and Costume Kingdom.
While Spirit Halloween, the biggest retailer, is known for its wide selection and good prices.
To do some comparison shopping I searched the sites for a child's vampire costume.
All of the online retailers carried the same costumes, but the prices varied by about $5 and several of the sites had already sold out of small sizes.
Since my son needs a small, I settled on a vampire costume at Spirit Halloween that was cheaper than some of the other sites.
But my shopping trip didn't end there.
Then, I searched the Internet for coupon codes. Some of the best sites are CouponCodesBay.com, TopDealCoupon.com, and RetailMeNot.com.
I found a coupon code for 20 percent off at Spirit Halloween. Because I'm placing the order early, I was able to save a couple dollars on shipping by going with the discount rate.
Keep in mind, Halloween is three weeks away. Popular costumes and sizes sell out quickly.
