THE RETAIL VALUE: $700
THE PURCHASE PRICE: $480
MY DUMB LUCK DISCOUNT: 31%
I wasn’t actively looking for a new computer. But after I bought this website from some awesome dude named Jason, it became evident to me that I was about to commit a lot of time on a computer. And although my computer at the time was mediocre, I planted a thought in my mind that I might need to buy a new computer at some point. And in case you haven’t picked up on it, this is a dumb luck story about buying a nice computer for cheap.
And if there’s anything that you can take away from this tale of dumb luck, it’s that Best Buy has a clearance section that sometimes has great deals.

And Here’s My Dumb Luck Story…
It’s not much of a story, since I already gave away the details. But typically, for purchases over $15, I need a lot of time to mull and contemplate how much I actually need that item. However, on one fateful evening, I stumbled across this excellent lap top at a severely discounted price.
I was grazing through Best Buy, waiting for my wife to finish her grazing through a discounted clothing store. I was glancing at their lap tops on display, trying to put some thought to the computer purchase I thought I may make in the future. Everything was nice, but over priced.
But then I remembered that Best Buy also has a clearance shelf for computers. So I sauteed into that aisle, until I finally noticed the computer that I ended up buying. And this laptop was PACKED:
- Intel Core i5 Processor
- 8 GB of RAM
- 500 GB of memory
- Touch Screen, and 360 degree swivel screen
- Waves MaxxAudio Pro
This laptop was discounted from $700 to $480.

But What A Score!
I know that 33% isn’t that big of a savings. But, considering my stinginess, how long it takes me to consider a purchase, I was reluctant to find this deal. So I made the purchase that night, without putting too much though to it.
And if there’s anything to be learned from this experience, it’s that never ignore Best Buy’s clearance items.
