Tips for saving money when buying a hard drive. Post your ideas below.
Go to Slickdeals.net. You can sign up free to receive instant alerts on virtually anything. These alerts will tell you when the item you have specified is available at a good price. Techdeals has a similar feature. Most of these sale prices are available from internet merchants and may include free shipping.
There are other money websites you should also consider. Google this: "13 Web Sites that are cheaper than ebay" to get them all. Many are tech oriented but most have search features where you can enter most any item and get a response showing where the item you want is either available or on sale.
Go to your best computer repair shop. (If necessary, ask for advice for a reputable and good one). They sometimes have parts, including hard drives, that have been traded out in an upgrade. It doesn't hurt to try. Avoid the really busy times of the day, so the person who matters will have the time to talk to you.
