Inflation is in the headlines.
What is inflation? According to Investopedia.com,
Inflation is a measure of the rate of rising prices of goods and services in an economy. If inflation is occurring, leading to higher prices for basic necessities such as food, it can have a negative impact on society.
- Inflation can occur when prices rise due to increases in production costs, such as raw materials and wages.
- A surge in demand for products and services can cause inflation as consumers are willing to pay more for the product.
Bottom line is that inflation means higher prices. Unless your income keeps up, this is bad news and requires some survival strategies.
“Stretch Your Dollar” Headlines
When inflation rears its ugly head, the media responds with lots of articles on saving money and stretching your dollar.
Save with Refurbished Tech Devices
We’re here to remind you that relying on Tech Discounts for your tech needs is one fantastic way to stretch your money and get more bang for your tech dollar.
When you buy refurbished tech from a reliable establishment like Tech Discounts, you can expect a discount ranging from 30-70% off retail prices. In other words, you’ll save $300-$700 on a laptop or phone that would cost $1000 new. Imagine heading home from Tech Discounts with a thousand-dollar laptop that you spent $300, $500, even $700 on – that’s a pretty serious savings.
Especially if your wages are stagnant and you’re feeling the pinch of rising prices, seizing this kind of savings can make a big difference at the end of the month.
In addition to the satisfaction of saving some serious dough, your refurbished purchase also helps conserve resources. Choosing a used device instead of a new device translates to a much smaller carbon footprint, and takes the pressure off the natural resources required for new devices such as silver, gold, nickel and copper.
For more about the benefits of buying refurbished tech, read our blog post Add Buying Refurbished Electronics to Your 2022 Sustainable Goals List. It explains that used tech is often more reliable than new devices, thanks to the careful testing protocols we subject them to.
