Saved Searches, combined with calendar alerts, make a powerful saving-money duo. I was browsing at Nordstrom one day a few weeks ago and found a purse I really liked. A friend of mine urged me to buy it, but my bargain hunter instinct was going off, and I did not urgently need a new purse, so I took some pictures with my cell phone of the purse and the brand name, and went home.
I found out that by shopping online, I could save the sales tax. For a few weeks, I looked at the email from eBay every morning, waiting for the backpack purse to show up. Wow… Anyway, I bid on it. So I set an Outlook reminder to remind me about 10 minutes before the auction ended.
I have Outlook set up to sync with my cell phone, so a reminder tone will go off there, too. That is, indeed, what happened, and I logged on to eBay with a few minutes remaining and refreshed the page every 10 seconds or so to make sure no one outbid me. Set a calendar reminder for a few minutes before the auction ends so you can make sure no one outbids you at the last minute.
I regularly buy AC adapters for my laptops on eBay.
Caveats: I do not recommend buying refurbished electronics or laptops on eBay. Be careful with clothes — make sure you know they will fit by trying the same brand on in a store first. In most cases, you will want to stick with an eBay seller who has a high reputation number. I have successfully used this same eBay strategy to save hundreds of thousands of dollars vs.
With the money I saved I bought extra equipment in case we had failures. Used Cisco and Foundry gear is rock solid, though, and the failure rate was not higher than it would have been if we would have bought new equipment.
