Innovative Ways to Save Money When Buying Home Electronics

SHARE:



The very thought of kitting out your home with the latest electronic devices can send shivers down the spines of any gadget enthusiast. The thought of saving money while doing so is all the more incentive to go gadget shopping. There are innovative ways to buy gadgets for your home, without breaking the proverbial bank. Let’s explore some of these ways, with different gadgets and appliances in mind.


Tips to save money on a new laptop:
Let’s face it, laptops, office and home automation are expensive and if you shave a bit off the price it would be a deal made in heaven. You need to of course ask yourselves a few important questions before purchasing your next boy’s toy.

Questions like,

       Do I really need a new laptop, or will upgrading the RAM on my old one suffice?
       Does it matter if it is the current generation or an older model?
       Can I buy a refurbished piece?
       Should I consider an extended warranty?

The answers of course will determine the make, model and price of your purchase. For instance, buying a laptop with a relevant configuration but a slightly older processor could save you nearly 20 percent on your bill. Buying a refurbished model with a standard 12 month warranty would work out to nearly 45 percent cheaper.

You could also save money if you choose to buy a workstation for home use, as they can be assembled a lot cheaper using parts sourced from wholesalers.

Tips to save money when buying a new television:
A new flat screen plasma or LED television is every sports nut’s dream come true. They are prohibitively expensive though. So while shopping for a new LED set make sure you do the following things in order to save on your purchase.
       Research online and compare specs of different models
       Look for a more energy efficient model
       Buy during major promotions
       Look for red flag sales offline
       Buy refurbished models, they’re as good as new but cost nearly 30% less
       Bargain with shop owners, ask for the best price
       Buy at factory outlets


Tips to save money when buying air conditioning:
With global warming making the planet almost unbearably hot, air conditioning is no longer a luxury but for most especially in the tropics, it has become a necessity. Air conditioners come in different tonnages and with different energy star ratings. These make a major difference in both the cost of acquisition of the machine, as well as the cost in terms of energy bills. Do keep the following things in mind to save a bundle on your cooling bills.

  Buy smart, remember air conditioning with a higher energy star rating may be more expensive in the short run but saves you a cool haul in energy bills in the long run
  Keep in mind the size of your home before buying an AC
  The lesser the tonnage, the more stress on the compressor of the AC, buy an AC with slightly higher tonnage to ensure optimum cooling and repair costs


Tips to save money when buying a music system:
Music systems are nearly obsolete now that our laptops have in-built stereo speakers in them. But audiophiles needn’t deprive themselves of the sweet sounds of music by keeping in mind these simple steps to save on buying a music system.

 ●  Choose a Hi-Fi over an assembled piece if you aren’t too bothered with the sound    quality
 ●   Nowadays amplifiers come built in with USB connections to facilitate music play off    devices like mp3 players and pen drives, saving on the cost of a deck or CD players
 ●   Go in for a recognised brand vis-a-vis generic, in-store brands, as they last longer
 ●    Buy online, it will work out to at least 20 percent cheaper than buying at a store


Following these simple tips will ensure that your home is completely kitted out and it doesn’t cost you the earth.
