With so many of us becoming slaves to our personal devices, it's no wonder the cost of communications is rising for most Canadian families.Whether it's your teen's incessant texting or your own video streaming and data usage, fact is, you're likely spending over $200 a month on your phone, TV and internet. To help curb those numbers, here at BargainMoose we've compiled a list of the latest Canadian communications deals, which include coupons and promotional offers on plans and subscriptions as well as deals on the devices themselves!
FINDING THE RIGHT PERSONAL TECH
Considering the amount of time we spend on our phones and devices, finding the right tech for you is as important as finding a well-fitting pair of shoes. From ease-of-use to cost, there are countless factors to consider. And while we can't tell you what phone will feel good in your hand and fit well in your pocket, we can certainly give you some tips on saving money on your purchase:
- Do the math. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a phone outright than as a part of a plan. This is especially so if you aren't looking for a long-term commitment or if you've found an unbeatable deal on a device. Check with your provider and crunch the numbers.
- Wait for the big sale events. This rule applies to any big-ticket purchases. If you can wait to buy, consider waiting for Boxing Day, Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals.
- Consider an older model. We'renot suggesting you purchase a 2005 flip phone, but being open to purchasing a model that isn't hot off the production line can potentially save you quite a bit of cash.
- Be patient. If you are set on buying the latest generation devices, consider waiting a few months for the hype to die down. You're unlikely to find a good deal immediately after the product enters circulation.
