Best Apps for Electronics Shopping Deals 2021

There is no need to spend a fortune when shopping for tech. You can save quite a bit, even when looking for high-end gadgets, and results may come as a surprise.




Best Apps for Electronics Shopping Deals 2021

Should a new laptop or smartphone ruin your credit score? Of course not! The internet offers an endless sea of bargains and possibilities but is also filled with poor customer service and even scammers. So we bit the bullet and tested the top online stores and deal platforms, finding that the most impressive savings came from the Newegg Mobile app with the lowest prices for the hottest laptops and the new iPhone 12. Here's why we chose this app and more:

Going in, we didn't exactly expect this platform to snatch the top spot with such bravado. Easy to navigate and tweak to suit your needs, it is arguably the best path to saving your hard-earned cash. No other online store presented us with lower prices. A winner by a long shot.

 Why we chose Newegg Mobile:

  • The store offers both refurbished and brand new products, allowing you to save as much as possible in the process.
  • The prices of laptops start as low as $92. Tablets are even cheaper.
  • A brand new iPhone 11, fresh out of the box, averages at $799. The most recent addition to the Apple family, iPhone 12, starts at $890.
  • A smart TV system can be had for a mere $109, letting you turn your home into a proper entertainment center at the fraction of the cost.
  • The app boasts an excellent recommendations section that uses your previous searches and purchases to show products you might like.
  • Ships all over the world.

No other app on the list has been able to perform so well, ticking every box that was important to our test.

Coming in second, B&H is known for its focus on professional equipment. Still, there's also plenty for us regular people. Regardless of whether you're a student, between jobs, or simply looking to pinch a few pennies, you definitely cannot afford to skip this heaven for all frugal folks out there

Why we chose B&H Photo Video:

  • The store offers an impressive selection of tech - including phones, computers, and home entertainment centers.
  • You'll have to part with a mere $124 for a laptop. Plenty of excellent choices when it comes to selecting a good smart TV.
  • Faithful to its original purpose, it is perfect for lovers of top-notch audio and video equipment.
  • Many items come with free US shipping, often resulting in substantial savings.
  • The only downside is the search function. It's impossible to order items by price. Everything else has left us impressed. 

Despite the last point, B&H is a destination no lover of tech should miss.

We couldn't possibly wrap this top 3 up without mentioning AliExpress. China's answer to Amazon and eBay rolled into one; it allows you to connect with sellers from across Asia and the world for a host of reasonable prices. 

Why we chose AliExpress:

  • Enormous selection of tech - both famous brands and lesser-known names.
  • Laptops start at $92, smart TVs at $116, while an iPhone 12 can be had for $944.
  • AliExpress offers great customer support and buyer protection, making sure that every product is delivered to your door - or you get a full refund.
  • Unfortunately, most items are shipped from China, which can rack up the shipping costs. You can get some items directly from US sellers - but not all. 

Some people may feel apprehensive but, according to our experience, there is no need to be. Customer protection is excellent.
