Buying Tips - PC Hardware and Software

The PC hardware and software markets represent capitalism at its messiest, with prices yo-yoing up and down constantly thanks to sales, mail-in rebates, instant rebates, and other offers. If you simply settle for the first price you’re offered, you can end up paying hundreds of dollars more than you should.

Fortunately, a handful of web sites have sprung up in recent years to flag the best prices on all sorts of products, most of them tech-related. They often include details about coupons, discount codes, and other limited-time offers that you can use to reduce the price of a product substantially.

Monitor the following deal sites regularly:

  • Ben’s Bargains: Web / RSS
  • Cheap Stingy Bargains: Web / RSS
  • DealCatcher: Web / RSS
  • Reseller Ratings: Web / RSS

Some of these sites keep archives of their daily deals, where you can search to find out if a particular product is regularly sold at a better price than you’ve just been offered.
