Best Tech Deals 2019

We've got all of the best tech deals right here. You'll find offers on all sorts of tech, including laptop discounts, cheap phones, and sales on lots of other gadgets.

Here at Tech Advisor, we are continuously scouring the web for the very best tech deals on all things electrical. Whether you're looking for a new TV, a new laptop or a new phone, we've got a deal that'll suit you.

You'll see some brilliantly good deals on all things electrical as retailers gear up for the year ahead. Keep an eye out for a bargain price on that tablet you've always wanted or camera you've had your eye on.

Where are the best places to get cheap tech deals?

Amazon has Lightning Deals running all year round. Plus, if you're an Amazon Prime Member, you can get access to those deals 30 minutes early before all of the good stuff gets snapped up. You can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime here.

eBay is another great place to look for deals. There are outlets from big-name stores such as Argos on eBay, and there you'll find heavily discounted tech from trusted sources.

There are hundreds of other stores offering deals all the time though, which is where we come in. Our team of experts curate the best tech deals from every category right here, so you don't have to do the hard work!

What makes a good deal?

While there are lots of amazing tech deals to be had, it's worth pointing out that not everything will be the good deal that it sounds. Here are some tips for buying tech (and other stuff) that is discounted or part of a sale.

Check the market value

Always check the market value for a product. Just because a laptop or a tablet has a 'save 50%' label slapped on it, that doesn't mean you'll be getting it significantly cheaper than you would yesterday or next week. Sale prices are usually calculated from the RRP, and few products maintain their RRP for their lifetime on sale. It's not unheard of for some retailers to raise their prices immediately before a sale.

See if the product is the latest version

This is particularly true of older products, and many of the 'deals' you'll see are previous-gen- or poor-quality products the retailer wants to get rid of. That doesn't mean they are not a good buy, but it's worth checking the specification against more recent devices.

Big brands aren't always the best

You don't have to buy a product simply because it's from a well-known manufacturer such as, say, Samsung. Samsung makes many excellent high-end products; it also makes a lot of cheap devices that are cheap all year around. Don't forget to read up on the product you're buying: read reviews from both tech sites such as this and real-life end users.

Don't jump the gun

To grab a bargain you need to be quick, but in your rush to snap up a deal don't forget to read the small print. Carefully check the item description and delivery requirements before you add a product to your basket.

Stop, look and listen

Do you really need that item? It's easy to be tempted by bargains, but you're not saving any money at all if you're buying something you probably won't use. We'd suggest writing a list of what you hope to find, then looking for deals on only those products on the day. If you don't visit the sale pages you can't be tempted.

Be sensible online

Don't buy anything that you can't afford, and be careful how you pay. Purchasing on credit cards is convenient and offers extra protection than does buying with a debit card, but if you're not going to immediately pay back that money then you may end up out of pocket in the long run. PayPal is another option for making secure payments.

Consider extra savings

Always look for voucher codes before buying a product online. If one is available you may get an even better deal.
