pricewatch.com is what I use for getting deals then check reviews of what comes up.

You're quite welcome. Hopefully others will share their methods for finding the best deals as well.

Hi Dirkk,

 

I find the prices, customer service, many buyer reviews are very good at Amazon. With the volume I purchase from them, having a Prime account makes great sense for the 2 day shipping on almost all items. Regarding the customer service, it's hard to find any online or brick and mortar store that can come close. I also purchase at NewEgg and others, but I don't find the experience to be equal Amazons. I use the other benefits that the Amazon Prime membership offers also.

 

Based on your local time, I'm assuming you're in the US, as I am.

 

Happy shopping,

 

Kurt

Hello Kurt,

 

No, I am in Germany, I just left the default time setting on this board, sorry.

 

Alrigt, it (almost) sounds a bit like advertisement. I didn't think of Amazon - actually I do not know, why - when I was wondering where one could buy such products.

 

I will have a closer look at Amozon.

 

Many thanks.

I prefer Amazon

When I was a PC builder I got most if not all my stuff at NewEgg

I don't have a real reason but I personally avoid Ebay but I know people that swear by that place


***Note***

My job has blocked Europe by the firewall which means I can't access this site from the office anymore. So I will barely be here if at all. In case you cared.  :smash:

I use the Invisible Hands Chrome extension. Works quite well.

 

InvisibleHand gets you the lowest price on shopping, flights, hotels & rental cars. Automatically.
InvisibleHand shows a discreet notification when there are lower prices available on the product, flight, hotel or rental car you're shopping for. It gives you a link directly to the lowest price.

OK, I will check out / compare NewEgg and Amazon when I have anything to buy the next time.

 

Many thanks for the link, sounds interesting and that Invisible Hands add on is available for Firefox as well, I will try it.
