Finding the best tech deals on any e-commerce site takes a little sleuthing. NeweggBusiness is no exception, despite the valiant efforts of the web management team to make it as easy as possible to find products at the best prices.
Here I will show you a fool proof shopping method that puts site users at an advantage. With it you will find the best tech deals on the items you need—always, without fail.
Start at the top, not the search bar
Our internet instincts drive us immediately to search bar whenever online shopping. Stop!
Using site search is great for finding what you want, but it’s not necessarily how you will find the best deals. Remember to create a NeweggBusiness account and log in to fully utilize all the benefits (like setting price alerts) and see all the best deals. Afterwards, start at Products.
Shop by category to spot relevant deals
The blue dropdown menu (above) shows all the categories by which every product is organized. Placement of deals and promotions follows the same hierarchy. Say you are looking for a new business laptop. You will click the PCs & Laptops link to open the PCs & Laptops category page, and locate all the relevant laptop deals under the “hero” picture.
On the PCs & Laptops category page, find the Laptops/Notebooks subcategory (outlined below). Click that link to view to see deals within that subcategory just like on the PCs & Laptops category page.
Scroll through Featured Products for Promo Codes
Scroll down a bit to look at the Featured Products (pictured below) which often have promo code for added discounts. If the SKU you came to find has a discount, good news for you. If not, chances are a similar product will have discount worth considering.
Use the search filters on the side bar
Once you navigate to the subcategory page for the type of product you want to buy, notice the filters on the left side of the page. These will assist you in narrowing down your items in the search.
This example shows several specifications pertaining to the laptop/notebooks subcategory. Use the checkboxes to pair the specs you need to the budget range you are looking to spend. This reveals the most appropriate products for you to consider purchasing.
Similar hardware-specific filters are on every subcategory page on NeweggBusiness.com. Using the filters are probably the most calculated way that customers can narrow down available SKUs in search of the best tech deals for their budget.
Set price alerts
Timing is critical for getting the best tech deals. You want to always be buying at the right time.
If you haven’t already, check out hardware pricing trends on PC Part Picker; this will give you an idea where certain components are heading price-wise.
When you’re waiting for the price to drop on new technology, or when purchasing commodity items like spare HDDs or printer cartridges for example, setting a price alert will trigger an e-mail whenever a certain item drops below a price that you determine.
You can set price alerts by logging on to your NeweggBusiness account, and navigating a product page. There you will find the option for setting a price alert for that SKU.
You can view and manage your price alerts from your account dashboard main page.
Lease or finance tech purchases
Leasing instead of buying IT equipment is becoming increasingly popular with business customers. It helps companies keep initial expenditures down when making larger-scale purchases. When a company needs frequent updates of technology infrastructure, leasing passes off the costs of obsolescence onto the lessor. NeweggBusiness has flexible leasing and financing options available for businesses of all sizes. Find out how they can benefit your tech purchasing.
