Delextreme, now DX.com has really started posting a lot of electronics stuff lately. Programmers, bare chips, a lot of Arduino and STM32 stuff, a bunch of sensor boards, descretes, and packages of assorted descretes. I picked up the MPU6050 board, because I'm too lazy to make my own, also a Segger J-Link clone.

Just watch out with the descretes, a lot of things like resistors, capacitors, and leds are cheaper from someplace like Mouser/Digikey if you don't factor in the shipping. If you are ordering from Mouser/Digikey/Newark anyway, you should just throw in a bunch of various descretes rather than get the bundles from DX. At least price them out first.

Edit: also look at the packages of buttons, switches, USB connectors....

I value shop constantly amongst eBay, Tayda Electronics , BangGood. Excellent quality and prices to be had. If Tayda and Banggood don't have it check eBay.

Remember HK / China / Malaysia / Phillipines take a bit longer to arrive. You will get your items - they do care. Order in advance and be patient. I usually receive items in 2 weeks.

Microcontrollershop, Pololu , Futurlec , - Good deals on some things some times.

The only quality or quantity issues I have had in recent years are with Electronic Goldmine and All Electronics - They will fix problems promptly, but some days they can't count or ship from the rubbish bin. 10 years ago they had much better deals...
Generally overpriced, but check anyway:
Electronic Goldmine
All Electronics Corp.

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned CPC http://cpc.farnell.com the consumer arm of Farnell
They are doing free postage at the moment, don't know if they charge to use private credit/debit cards though, which Farnell do (thank goodness that fact stopped me getting a Tenma meter from them!). Building up an order at the moment so I'll find out soon...

Unless things have changed now they are amalgamated, but Newark in Canada (Farnell-Element 14- Newark) was high on prices and delivery.
I use either Digikey or Jameco.
