Some people have been asking about ways to find a laptop for less. And sometimes, especially when you find a price drop, you can save a lot of money on your laptop purchase if you buy from Amazon, even with the import fees.
Amazon's prices change frequently but they're really great about letting you know if an item in your cart has changed price - so if you found one and deliberated about it, you'll know if something changed when you decide to complete your purchase.
Here are a few that I found that seem worth looking at more closely:
HP Pavilion 14" touchscreen convertible laptop (over 25% off)
HP Pavilion x360 2-in-1 14" Touch-Screen Laptop (5% price drop)
ASUS VivoBook 14 Laptop, 14" with 1TB SSD
Winnovo WinBook K146 Laptop, 14 Inch Laptop Computer - very low cost computer, suitable for a "Kids' Computer" (17% price drop)
VGKE B14 Windows 10 Laptop (very low cost, but also has a $30 coupon right now!)
If a Chromebook meets your needs, there are a number of them in the super-affordable range!
NewASUS - Chromebook - 11.6 Inch
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 11 Chromebook Laptop (33% off right now)
2022 Newest HP Chromebook 11A G8 Education Edition (5% coupon available!)
HP - 11.6" Chromebook (Refurbished) - this one comes out to somewhere around $100 TOTAL, making it the perfect choice for the super budget-conscious shopper!
If you decide a higher end laptop (like this Lenovo Legion 5) is for you - you can also save a lot by doing a self-import from Amazon. However, there are a few more steps to getting it to your door - but the shipping agent designated by Amazon will walk you through it! You will need to fill out some forms and be careful to fill them out correctly. Once that's done, your laptop will be delivered to your door!
Just remember - you can avoid VAT and other import fees by staying below the $75 tax threshold for any single order! If you do go over, as you will if you're buying a computer, you will see exactly what you'll pay in taxes at checkout. I only do this if I'm actually buying a product that costs more than $75. And I don't add any other small things to these orders, because once you're over, you're over and you'll pay fees on the entire order.
For smaller purchases, I place separate orders that each total under $75.
If you're in the USA and buying a gift for someone in Israel, please follow those guidelines, too - or be prepared to prepay all taxes and fees. You'll see them before you checkout, so don't worry about surprises. You will need to enter the recipient's ID number at checkout too, so the package can clear customs.
Hope you found this helpful! If yes, be sure to find me on Facebook and join my shopping groups (here and here)!
