Online Shopping Tips for the Holidays!

Tips: Shopping Tip List

Here’s a list of tips you should consult when shopping online. Print this page and keep it in a handy place so it will be easy to review before you order.

  1. Trust your instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable buying or bidding on an item over the web, or if you feel pressured to place your order immediately, maybe you shouldn’t.
  2. Be knowledgeable about web-based auctions. Take special care to familiarize yourself not only with the rules and policies of the auction site itself but with the legal terms (warranties, refund policy, etc.) of the seller’s items that you wish to bid on.
  3. Double check pricing. Be suspicious of prices that are too good to be true. Also consider carefully whether you may be paying too much for an item, particularly if you’re bidding through an auction site. You may want to comparison shop, online or offline, before you buy. Make sure there are not extra shipping or handling costs.  Read the rest of this entry »

Computer Shopping 101


Its the time of year when a lot of people start shopping for a new computer.  Be it for themselves, a student, or even a parent/grandparent, there are some basic things that you should know before starting the selection process.

Shop Locally! You may find a cheaper price at some online wholesale or auction site, but BUYER BEWARE!!  The phrase “you get what you pay for” is definitely true here!  Also, if you buy local, your support is local.  Meaning you wont have to be on the phone with some out-sourced call center, located who knows where, trying to get your problem solved.  You get real people from your community, never more than a call or short drive away!

Buy from knowledgeable sellers! Ask questions!  Do they give you direct answers?  Or are they vague and non-committal?  Do they service what they sell?  What certifications do they have?

What services do they offer?  How long is their warranty?  Do they do onsite, or do you have to lug your PC back to them?

The point of these questions is to ensure that you will be supported in your investment.  When you purchase a computer, you are also purchasing a relationship with the place you purchased it from.  That relationship can be cold and impersonal if you buy from a big box store like Best Buy, or online.  Or it can be personal and individualized to your specific needs and performed by someone that knows who you are when you walk into the store.  That’s what we offer at Geek Easy Computers.  Not only are our computers competitively priced but our computer support and customer service are top notch.  You are more than just another sale to us!
