5. Watch for Rebates
In the competitive world of technology, manufacturers constantly try to stir up business or reduce inventory by offering rebates. Rarely do I visit an office store that does not have some brand of memory, peripherals, or software deeply discounted by rebates. As for the software, these rebates do not typically hit the big-name tools, but at a lower price, the lesser names still quite adequately function. Recently I purchaseda movie-making software for $10 after a $40 mail-in rebate. No one will mistake it for the premiere programs on the market,but it is user-friendly and affordable.
Rebates can save significant money, yet who wants to spend the time searching for those deals? Well, instead of collecting Sunday circulars or spending hours surfing websites, bookmark DealsOfAmerica.com. DealsOfAmerica.com searches all the big name technology retailers and lists their deals for you. A short time ago I added a new DVD burner to our production computer for only $25 and picked up a pair of wireless outdoor speakers for less than $80. Beginning with DealsOfAmerica.com saves time and money.
