There’s arguably nothing more painful for deal hunters than to open their wallets and have to finger through dozens of receipts for items that cost them a lot more than they bargained for.

DealNews.com, which tracks 2,000 online retailers to deliver the best daily deals, provided U.S. News with the average online prices from 2012 for items that are consistently much cheaper to buy on the Web than at a brick-and-mortar store.
