Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

It’s Cyber Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Well, I may as well “go with the flow” and write about how everybody is expected to shop! shop! shop!!! this so-called “Cyber Monday” (a reference to how you are not working, there at work, today, but just pretending to while you surf for bargains online).

I will say, again, be careful of online scams, and look for the “s” (https://) on shopping cart pages, and then point you to some geeky savings. Remember, try to go to the website directly — criminals are ‘poisoning’ search results, so you’ll get directed to their site, and get infected with a virus.

* Genie-soft, makers of the Timeline backup program (see my review here) are offering a 50% off deal here.

* Amazon has special discounts on all categories of items (not just ‘tech’). Their over-view page is here.

* TigerDirect’s “Pink Friday Sale” (named that as they will be donating a minimum of $100,000 to a breast cancer charity) is still available. Check out their discount items here.

* Buy.com says some items are discounted up to 83%.. but it is “while supplies last”, so.. don’t dawdle, click here.

Sometimes, it’s best to cut out the middleman.
* Hewlett-Packard has some deals (includes free shipping) here.
* Dell, for one day only, has savings of up to 80% on select products, here.
* Apple is offering savings on accessories (ahem.. accessories?) here.

Don’t forget Office Depot. I know it isn’t the first place you think of, but sometimes I think it should be. See their “while supplies last” deals here.

There.

That ought to help you be non-productive for a while. Have fun browsing!

Tip of the day: If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

Today’s quotable quote:Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths. At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.” ~ J. Robert Moskin

  1. And don’t forget Newegg.com – Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
    They have a Canadian site too. I use the US site more(better sales) and never have had any complaints.

    And this has come in handy a few times too and saved me money…
    Decide.com: Online Shopping for TVs, Computers, Cameras & Electronics
    Also has a phone app.

    Decide predicts if prices will drop or a newer model is coming soon.
    (I got the “Decide” site from TNYT so it’s reliable.)

    Sorry don’t have a lot of time..working on..Never mind..Not important. :)

    • delenn13,
      Ah, yes. I did forget NewEgg – thanks!

      But in my defense, I could not possibly list every retailer having a big “after Thanksgiving” sale… Far as I know, they ALL are.
