Saving Money on a Printer

September 12, 2009

I wrote not too long ago how we saved a ton by buying overstock and returned items and we found another deal this week!  My wife needed a new printer but instead of heading to Best Buy I stopped by another local discount store hoping to save some money. 

I had come on the right day, they had a pallet of HP Deskjet printers on sale for half of the retail price.  They were discounted because the boxes had been damaged. Not damaged as in ripped open or totally demolished but pretty minor dents or scratches in the box.

They assured me I could return the printer if it didn’t work for store credit as long as I kept my reiciept so I had nothing to lose.  I got it home, hooked it up, and it works like a charm.  I sure am glad I stopped by the discount store, saved myself $70!  I guess the moral is that it pays to shop around.
