REAL TALK: Buy Electronics Online from the U.S.A. ‘coz It’s Cheaper

Are there benefits when you buy electronics online from the USA instead of local online and physical stores?

As online shoppers, we should learn to maximize our shopping and shipping savings. With that said, knowing whether we can save more by buying from the US instead of from local stores is a big thing.

So, ARE there benefits to buying electronics from the US instead of from local stores? Let’s check the infographic below.


You can order the featured items above here:

Apple Watch Series 7
JBL Tour One
Lenovo Chromebook 3
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 512GB

As you can see from the infographics above, the price difference between buying electronics from US and local stores is undeniable. Significant savings, right? But wait. It would be best if you consider a couple more factors.

1. Check currency exchange rates.
Exchange rates change almost daily, so you should first manage your budget by checking the currency exchange rates.

Your overall spending will vary depending on the current exchange rates. Pro tip: Do a quick Google search to view the current exchange rates.

2. Make sure you have your own US address.
Another benefit of shopping from the US is access to US-exclusive products and sales. But you cannot view or avail of these items and deals without a US address.

A US address will enable you to view the extensive inventories of thousands of US online stores. If you do not have one, the stores will only show products limited to your country.

Question! Where do you get a US address? Package forwarding companies provide you with your own US address, but not all offer it free. Lucky you, comGateway does. You just register here, and you’ll receive your own US address that you can use on thousands of US online stores.

You are now ready to go to your chosen US store and enter your US address to view their entire inventory. Happy shopping!
