Where to Find the Best Deals on Technology this Holiday Season
(ARA) – The holiday season is fast approaching and according to a recent survey conducted by Bizrate.com, people have already started shopping for those all important gifts. The most popular of which, so far, are the new iPhone, flat screen televisions, gaming systems, jewelry, digital photo frames and laptop computers.
While everyone’s list is going to be a little different, chances are good that yours too will have a lot of technology on it. After all, the kids started asking for a new gaming system and iPod months ago. Your significant other has been hinting about the need to upgrade the family’s digital camera equipment, and you finally want to get a flat screen television for the living room.
But when it comes time to start shopping, where will you begin? If you want to save time, energy and money, make this the year you bypass the Sunday circulars and shop on line. eMarketer predicts 2007 will be the biggest online shopping year yet. Web merchants are expected to ring up sales worth $24.3 billion during the upcoming holiday season.
If you plan to be among those who add to the bottom line, don’t just log on to the Web site of a well-known brick-and-mortar store. Start your shopping adventure at the place where the real tech deals can be found.
