Twitter Your Way to Tech Deals
Popular social networking site can net you deals on A/V gear and gadgets.
April 10, 2009 by Chuck McKenney
Lots of activity on Buy_com. Here’s what I found:

  • JVC LT-42X579 - 42” Widescreen 1080p LCD HDTV
  • Dell Studio Hybrid Desktop
  • Philips 100W Sound System
  • PhotoShare 7XL Digital Photo Frame

My big gripe with the page is the lack of pricing for the products. How do you know if it’s really a deal?

DellOutlet offers refurbished Dell computers and electronics. Unfortunately, the few deal postings are buried within an avalanche of correspondence between readers and staff. On this day, a Spring Sale tweet was posted prematurely and the broken link ignited a customer service nightmare. I did find a link to some software deals at the Dell download store. Not impressed.

CheapTweet claims to “have thousands of deals you simply cannot find on any other deals site.” While they offer a ton of deals, the tech offerings are a bit slim. I found:

  • 25% off Toshiba Laptops
  • 1TB hard drive for $80

You might be better served visting the tech page on
