How to buy cheap computers at a local computer store
You can’t buy cheap, but you can buy cheap.
That’s what happens when you walk into a computer store, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans said they would shop online to get their hands on cheap, inexpensive computers, compared to just about one-third who said they’d buy cheap from a brick-and-mortar store.
In other words, buying cheap online is almost always a smart decision, as it can save you money on your next purchase.
For example, one study found that shoppers who shop online can save as much as $30 on their next purchases.
Other research has shown that buying online can lower the cost of owning a home or getting a loan, as well.
The poll surveyed 1,012 people by landline and cell phone from Jan. 23 to Feb. 10, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.ABC News’ John Santucci contributed to this report.
