What are some less obvious ways to save money using the internet? Examples below the fold.

So I love going to the movies, but it's hella expensive. So I have a Google Alert set up for "Fandango" and "Coupon." Once in a while, it'll turn up one of those Groupon-style daily deal sites with a 2-for-1 Fandango coupon (so that my girlfriend and I can go for the price of one.) Back when I needed a subscription for Time Out New York and knew they gave them out for free sometimes, I had a Google Alert set up for that as well.
What else is out there that I could be using to save some cash and haven't thought of/doesn't know exists? Hacks like the Fandango thing are great but also stuff like "RetailMeNot has coupon codes for lots of internet retailers," or "TouchArcade always publicizes big iOS game sales" or "Dealzmodo exists" or "Steam has huge sales every winter and summer."
I subscribe to way too many of the daily deal sites already, so a list of those would be not so useful.
