Watch out for apps such as Price Check when matching prices, especially when the price results include multiple-item deals or bundles you weren't planning to buy. Sometimes you'll think you're getting more for your money. "Just because someone says it's a deal doesn't mean it is," says Belsky.

Ask yourself: Is this really the best price or deal for me within driving distance or including shipping fees? Have I spent enough time researching the price of this product? Do I need and will I use any extra items included?
