Back to School Shopping Tips - Computer Deals and other Electronics


Save on back to school electronics

Back to school time is a great opportunity to take advantage of the many deals that are floating around on electronics for students. Whether you need a desktop or laptop computer, an iPad or printer, you can save significantly by taking advantages of current deals. Hewlett Packard and Dell, two companies with a lot of history and success, are offering hundreds of amazing discounts on electronics right now!

Hewlett Packard and Dell - Reputation

Started in 1935, Hewlett Packard, commonly known as HP, boasts some of the most widely known computers in the world. HP electronics continue to improve, as does customer service. The great thing about owning a Hewlett Packard personal computer is that it is pretty easy to find parts and service, as this product is so well-known. Your choice of computer can be configured at HP’s online store, and shipping is free on most products.

Although Dell didn’t come around until 1984, they have quickly become one of the most well-known computer companies across the world. Dell is known globally for its great customer service. They offer easy product returns and next day set-up for customers after their purchase. Dell is the number one provider of computers for health care facilities. Having worked in a life care retirement facility for over a decade, I can vouch for Dell being my facility’s number one choice. Upgrades and repairs were easy and relatively painless, and the computers lasted many, many years. We never used any other brand of computer.

HP and Dell's Online Store Specials

Hewlett Packard and Dell are both offering incredible deals to help back-to-school shoppers. Their online sites are excellent places for college students to find what they need before classes again. HP is offering deals such as 20% off desktop computers and 30% off laptops. If you need something smaller, a Probook or Elite Notebook might be the better choice. HP has deals on printers and printer ink. And what college student doesn’t need a television for the dorm room or apartment. What about one that is discounted up to $1200 off? Now, that has got to be some TV! One that the whole dorm will be knocking on your door to watch! And what if you could get a free Xbox 360 with a computer purchase? How cool would that be? Now, you have plenty to keep you busy between classes.

Dell has great deals, too, with savings of over $300 on a 46 inch TV. On computers, Dell gives deep discounts and up to 45% off with special coupons. Do you need gaming laptops? Laptop cases? Shop for the big electronics, of course, but don’t forget the computer accessories. You may need cables, batteries, speakers, headphones, and a new, cool mouse pad.

Save with Online Coupons

While all these deals are subject to change, deals will always abound at Hewlett Packard and Dell’s online stores through AnyCodes. This website offers coupon deals on a continual basis with literally hundreds of stores around the world. Check them out for your back-to-school shopping needs. There are some HP coupons and other discounts to find the computers or other electronic products that you need this school year.

TT--I'm glad it's helpful. I don't need a laptop right now, but when I need a new one, I really think I'll look at Dell. They do seem really solid. I don't hear of problems with them, and they are affordable even without coupons. I used them all the time at my old job but never at home. So I may go that direction in the future. Thanks, TT, for coming by!

It is that time of year again isn't it? I am sure this information will be very helpful to parents. It is also a good hub for the much needed Christmas shopper. Thanks for the information.
