We are getting around the time of the year where the holidays are coming closer to us each day. That means shopping and saving money is on all of our minds. As a electronics/gadgets fan, I will be the first to say that I am not afraid to find a cheap deal. However, it can be time consuming and we all know money is time. That is why I am writing up this guide to help you find the cheapest deals to make your money go further. So lets get started!
Half is a great option if you have media fans on your list. They have books, DVDs, CDs and video games for low prices. I am plenty excited to find this site, just because I know that I will be able to stretch my dollar on here. However, be warned that it might take a while before you get your package so you might want to start ordering late this month or early next month.
iNetVideo is my next top pick. I used them last year and will be doing so again. Their prices are hard to beat and they do have some hard to find items. Best of all their selection is pretty large. My only issue is waiting for the package to arrive, so order early as well. I do believe they ship from Canada, so it does take a while.
eBay is another good option, but I recommend only using buy now feature. I have gotten a few good deals from here, but you should be warned about scammers and those who jack up shipping cost. Still, I will likely use this site early on in my own shopping so that I can ensure that I do get it.
Geeks seems to be a less known option, which I do not understand at all! They have a wide selection of great gifts and also allow you to afford them better. Same for Newegg and Tiger Direct, which are also 2 great options.
Other technology stores like Fry’s, Best Buy, HHGREGG, Amazon and similar sites will be a good option if you have a more breathing room in your budget. Also, as the holidays get closer we can start to expect sneak peek Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals. So be sure to pay attention to your local ads and don’t forget stores like WalMart, KMart and Target. They will have some amazing deals at times. Same goes for your local close out stores like Fred’s or Big Lots.
