Best way to learn about good sales on PC hardware?

#1staticxtreme5Posted 10/4/2013 5:24:03 PM
I was just wondering if there was a good way to keep in the loop about good sales for various PC parts? I pretty much have my ideal build figured out, but I would like to buy parts as they go on sale or swap for similar ones that go on sale at various times. Obviously Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be well advertised, but from now until then is there an efficient way to keep up with sales besides checking the various websites daily?

Bookmark Amazon, Newegg, TigerDirect, and other PC hardware web stores and check daily.

Frequent this forum, Tom's Hardware, and other PC sites daily.

There is no simple solution. You'll have to check every single day.

Well, you could pay someone to do it for you.

Bummer. I was hoping there was an app or something similar to how you can be alerted when apps go on sale.

Just sign up for the sites Master mentioned. I know newegg regularly sends sales advertisements (they have one just about every week) The sale thats going on now is 10-30% off various pc parts.

Shows the sales of the last 7 days across multiple sites. You can even sign up for email alerts on all sales, or just the specific parts you want.

with amazon, you have to keep this in mind, their prices can change day by day. One day an item can be $10, the next day it can be $8 then the next day could be $9.

Check PC Part Picker if there are specific parts you want to keep an eye for. For general sales, I subscribe to Newegg and check fatwallet as well as techbargains every so often.
