Got a secret to share? Where do you find your electronics deals?
I love bargains.
I have been known to buy something for which I don’t have an immediate use or need, just because the price is really good.
Some people don’t understand that.
What I really love is electronics bargains. I have a few places to share where I often find them, and I hope some of you will share, too.
Newegg. Great online store for computer and other electronics items. You can sign up for email notices, which arrive several times a week and have real bargains in them. Shipping is often, but not always, free.
A friend told me about Woot, and I am still trying to figure out how to get back at him. Woot puts one thing on sale every day and charges a flat $5 shipping fee. You usually can buy up to three of that day’s offering, and the shipping is still $5. The day’s deal is posted at midnight Central time, and it lasts till it sells out, or one day, whichever is shorter. There’s a lot of electronics offered; much of it is refurbished, but I’ve had good luck with everything I’ve bought there, new or refurbed. Every few weeks a “wootoff” occurs, a two-day orgy of bargains, some of which are available for perhaps 20 seconds before being sold out.
Another friend told me about The Chicago Tech Guy on Facebook. A mix of tips, news, advice and bargains he’s found and passes along. Unobtrusive and helpful.
Now, how about a little help? Got a favorite place, online or brick-and-mortar, where you often find bargains? Share it with the rest of us.
Please. It's been days since I bought anything.
