How to save $7,500 on your next computer purchase
The first time I saw the $70 bill in my wallet, I thought it was a joke.
But I had a bigger problem.
I had just purchased my first computer, and I was expecting to pay $1,500 more than what I’d paid for the same computer in previous years.
I didn’t even know how much I’d be spending.
And, I was looking for ways to cut costs and save money.
I wanted to buy something with fewer bells and whistles than what most people buy these days, including a mouse and keyboard, a Blu-ray player and a set of headphones.
When I first opened the $7.99 bill, I knew I had to do something to save money in the future.
So I did what anyone would do.
I called up the post office to order a new one.
My new computer was priced at $1.9 million, and it came with a DVD burner, two USB ports, a hard drive, a mouse, an Ethernet cable and a wireless network adapter.
But it cost $749.99.
I paid the full $799.99, but I still had to pay the $2,699.99 shipping fee and the $1 service charge.
It’s an extra $3,000.
In hindsight, the $6.99 service charge made the $750 total nearly $4,000 less than what it would have been if I’d gone with a cheaper computer, like a $500 model, and saved $7 on my next purchase.
But, as I went back and forth between saving money and spending it, I noticed something different.
When the $500 service charge was added to my total, it meant I was spending $3.49 more than I should have been.
In the end, I had saved $6,965 on my purchase.
If you’re saving money by paying a service charge, you’ll likely save money by not paying for a computer.
But you’ll also be paying for an extra service charge when you buy a new computer.
And if you’re not saving money, you may not save much.
I did my research, and here’s why.
The term “service charge” means the price of a service that you don’t pay for.
But when it comes to a computer, most of the time it’s not about a computer but about the software that runs it.
So, a computer’s price is often more important than the price at which you use it.
The computer I bought was a Lenovo Thinkpad T430, a 13-inch laptop with a 1366 x 768 display and an Intel Core i5 processor.
That’s the same processor found in my Dell XPS 13, a 12-inch gaming laptop.
But the Thinkpad also has a touchpad and a mouse.
When I bought the Thinkpads, I bought a machine with a touch-sensitive keyboard and mouse that had a base price of $1:8,000, which is less than half the cost of the Lenovo model.
So, what does it mean to pay a service price?
It means that when you pay for a software program or hardware that’s not included in your purchase price, you’re paying for additional cost that you wouldn’t otherwise pay for, like software or a computer that’s less powerful.
If you’re buying a computer with a price tag that’s more than $1 above what you’d pay for the exact same computer with the exact software, it’s a service.
In this case, I pay $739.99 for the software.
I pay a $1 shipping fee, and then the software is added to the total.
I get to keep the hardware, but the total cost of a computer is reduced.
I’m saving money on my computer, but it’s paying for extra software that I wouldn’t have paid for if I didn.
As you can see, it takes more than a software upgrade or hardware change to make a difference.
But when I looked at the difference in the price when I bought my new computer, it didn’t make much of a difference to me.
I spent nearly $3 million on my $750 computer.
But I wanted something that I didn’T have to pay for in the first place.
I also wanted a computer to get me through college and beyond.
And I was concerned about paying for things like software when I needed to use them on a daily basis.
So it’s important to keep in mind that paying a small service fee isn’t going to make up for lost money you’d have to spend on something else.
The fact is, there’s a lot of stuff that we all spend money on that’s worth less than a computer and a few other items we’ll never use.
So there’s no way to save much money on anything.
