If you’re reading this right now and you’re a fan of electronics (who isn’t?) then you’ve definitely just hit it big. We’re about to give you our favorite sources of cheap electronics. Yes, that’s right. We aren’t going to charge you for giving away some secret location or vault that is slam packed full of electronics at close out prices. Instead, we’re going to give you a few places that you can look which are usually home to great deals on electronics. You probably even already know of these places but never thought to look there. Ready?
Yes, Craigslist isn’t just for posting jobs or selling cars even though that’s what most people think. It’s also home to some great prices on used electronics. We’ve seen 42 inch LCD TVs for as little as $200 and Canon 7Ds for around $600 (they usually retail at over $1,000). You can even find used gaming consoles for 1/3 of what they sell for in major retail stores.
Okay, this one is kind of obvious but we just had to throw it in there anyways. Most people go on eBay in search of things like clothing, jewelry, and collectibles (it’s home to a ton of movie memorabilia and autographs). You can also find new and used electronics on there. Notice how we said new AND used? That’s because most stores also have eBay accounts where they sell new items that they couldn’t sell in the store at even better prices!
Every once in a while, you’ll find some pretty good deals on electronics in your local classifieds. Most every area has them and some areas even have them set up through local radio stations with an actual website where people can post their items for sale. You can probably even find local groups near you via social media sites like Facebook. Just do a quick search of “Classifieds” or “Trading” along with your city and state. Yep, that easy!
These are few and far between but they do exist. They are basically stores that sell items with damaged packaging or some minor imperfection at prices well below retail. Just one example of that would be a sound system that is still in the box that is missing the remote or the box may be damaged (the item inside isn’t). Some of the items are also just stuff that has been returned to stores in the past and there isn’t a thing wrong with it at all.
If you look for cheap electronics at all these locations and don’t find what you’re looking for then something is seriously wrong. We’ve had great success with all of these sources in the past and chances are, you won’t even make it past Craigslist or eBay unless you’re just up for a little challenge. There is literally always an abundance of cheap electronics on both of those sites and if you play your cards right, you may even land some cool free shipping!
Now, what are you waiting for? Get out there and find those cheap electronics asap!
