Techies put their paws on new gadgets as soon as they can afford them. However, finding good stuff at a bargain isn’t always a snap. Success can require spending hours surfing the web in a deal-hunting crusade.
On the other hand, scouting out the best quality at the lowest price is such a pleasure, isn’t it? We want you to feel that way without wasting your time.
We’ve curated a list of iOS apps that can help you find the best deals for the best techie jewels. Dive into it!
There’s little new we can say about the giant Internet retailer. Facta non verba.
The Amazon App provides a handy and accessible layout for all the products and features that can be found on its website. Of course, there aren’t just tech products here, but the gadget catalogue alone is enviable.
Browse products using the search bar, shop by department (books, clothing, electronics…), and find Today’s deals and recommendations. In addition, you can compare prices, read reviews, and share any product. A well-designed app at the height of the excellent service offered by Jeff Bezos’ company.
Maybe you can’t afford the retail price of a gadget, but you really want it, now. Like right now.
Give the second-hand market a chance; eBay is your answer. The iOS app provides access to the lightweight version of the eBay homepage. Search products, filter results, place bids, or ‘Buy It Now’. Posting new auctions is equally easy. eBay for iOS is both intuitive and full-featured. You can sign in with your account and manage your profile right from the app.
Newegg had to be included in this list. When it comes to online electronic retailers, it’s one of the first names that comes to mind (at least, for those living in the USA).
Mobile phones, cameras, computer components, home cinemas… if it has circuits, you’ll find it here. Of course, all the big name products are available: Apple, Samsung, Cooler Master, Canon… A lot of offers and gift cards will enhance the e-shopping experience, already top-notch due to a user-friendly interface.
There are lots of QR/Barcode scanners for Android, it’s true.RedLaser is more than that: it uses Google Product Search, Ebay, Shopping.com and other related web services to find the best prices.
Scan around you as though your device were a weapon of thriftiness, discover hidden deals, and don’t miss bargains. It scans UPC, EAN, UPC-E, EAN-8, shoing both prices and relevant product info. A must-have shopping tool.
For those obsessed with getting a unbeatable quality/price ratio, digging into the Chinese market is definitely an option to consider. AliExpress is by far the most well-known online retailer for finding products from Chinese and other Asian tech manufacturers.
Of course, electronics is the star category, including products from Xiaomi, Oppo, and other companies focused on those markets. However, you can find a huge catalogue of products within many other categories.
