About Us

BargainsLA.com is Southern California premier source for “up to the minute’ Bargain shopping scoop including discount boutiques, stores, warehouse and sample sales and consumer information. Originally created in 1999 by Kevin and Suzanne O’Connor, BargainsLA.com now covers Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside Counties.

Originally inspired by her mom, Geri Cook, L.A.’s original Bargain Lady, Suzanne got hooked on bargain shopping after researching bargain sources for her mom’s Best Bargains Newsletter and co-hosting the “The Bargain Show” on KRLA. Suzanne saw the need for more timely information and BargainsLA.com was born.

Suzanne expertise led to her being crowned LA’s Bargain Shopping Queen by NBC’s Doug Kreigel in 2001. She does all the researching, writing and reporting and husband Kevin tackles & resolves all technical web issues. 

It’s takes a lot of accumulated insider know how and leg work to get the real inside scoop. Holding a high standard when researching bargain sources, sales and outlets in Southern California, Suzanne personally researches every retailer. All recommended sources on BargainsLA.com must offer “quality goods and service at well below retail pricing”. A real bargain has quality and value. It is not cheap stuff at a cheap price.

Suzanne’s expertise and enthusiasm has led to numerous appearances on television news and talk shows. This black belt shopper leaves no stone unturned in her search for a deal and loves sharing the infectious fun of bargain hunting.

Our Mission Statement:

At Bargainsla.com we continually strive to seek out the best bargain sources in Southern California and across America. All the sources on BargainsLA.com have met our criteria of “quality goods and services at a discounted price” and are revisited on a regular basis to insure those requirements are being met.

We will revoke our endorsement should a retailer fall short in that requirement or we receive 3 verified complaints. Our concern is for you, the consumer. Honesty is job one. We always welcome your feedback and suggestions.

We promise to do our very best to thoroughly research, truthfully recommend and conduct business in an ethical manner.

Thank you for your support of BargainsLA.com…
