Bargaintown is an unincorporated community located within Egg Harbor Township, in Atlantic County, New Jersey, United States.[2] The Egg Harbor Township municipal building is located in Bargaintown, about 0.25 mi (0.40 km) east of the Garden State Parkway.

Bargaintown was laid out by a property developer who hoped the community would grow into something important, but when it did not, he sold the lots cheaply. The community has since been called Bargaintown.[3]
