Radio Shack offers a number of opportunities to save money whether you shop in-store or online. The following tips will help you connect with all of the money-saving resources available. Don't forget to look at the coupons and coupon codes listed above to get your savings off to a great start.
When you navigate to the product page of an item you are interested in, look for 'Ship To Store' in the product details area. Select products can be shipped for free to local stores, but not all stores are part of this program. To find out if there is a participating store near you, follow this link to the Ship To Store Store Locator and enter your zip code in the area provided. You will get a list of eligible stores in your zip code and surrounding areas as well. ( Be aware that there is another store locator that finds all stores in your area, not just Ship To Store locations.) Once you have identified a store to ship to you can proceed with checkout, enter your zip code, and select the store from the list that comes up. If you have some Ship To Store products and some that are not eligible, you will need to select other shipping options for the ineligible items.
The Sale Section has sale items listed in ten categories including: Computers, TV and Video, GPS and Car, or Cameras and Camcorders, to name a few. Once you select a sale category you can refine your search by Brand and/or Price Range. We found discounts up to 60% off retail.
There is also an In-Store Clearance Section that features some great prices. You will find the same categories and filters as in the Sale Section. The old prices and percentage of discount are not listed, so it is hard to say how big the clearance discounts are. You would need to search other stores or web sites for comparable prices on the item to find out how good the deal is. To find out if the clearance item is available at a Radio Shack near you, click the 'Find It In Store' button on the product details page and enter your zip code in the page that comes up. When you click 'Go' a list of nearby stores that have the item in stock will appear.
There is currently a promotion to save $10 on your next qualifying $40 purchase when you sign up for the Radio Shack E-mail Newsletter. Watch for this or other sign up bonuses. The newsletter will keep you informed about the latest products and sale promotions. You will find a place to sign up for the newsletter near the bottom-center of most pages on the site.
An excellent way to jumpstart your savings is with slightly used, discounted Radio Shack gift cards. You can save an average of 8.9% on the current balance for discounted gift cards on giftcardgranny.com. There may or may not be any discounted cards available when you first check the site, but if you don't find one you can create an alert to be notified by email when gift cards become available.
Following Radio Shack on Twitter and Facebook to keep informed about exclusive deals, sales, promotions, new product releases, contests, and more. You'll find links to current sales and featured products, and you can interact with radio Shack and other customers and ask questions/share information about products and tech issues. Who knows? Maybe someone will listen to what you have to say for a change.
Find current sales promotions for a store near you in the Weekly Ad Online Section. When you follow this link you will be taken to an ad for a store near where you live. If you would prefer a different store you can click on 'view/change' for a complete list of locations in your area. When you find the store you prefer, click on view local ad and open an interactive sale flyer for that store. Check back often because these promotions change, well, weekly.
Before you haul your out-dated technology electronics to the local recycler, you might want to heck out the
Shack Trade & Save Program. You can ring your eligible working products and accessories to a participating RadioShack store for an appraisal. If the items you bring in have value to RadioShack, they can apply the value instantly to your purchase or send you a Radio Shack Gift Card for the appraisal amount. You can search for your products estimated value online. First select a product category from among these choices: Computers, Car Audio & GPS Receivers, Mobile Phones, HDTVs, MP3 Players, Game Consoles & Games, or Cameras & Camcorders. You will be taken to a page where you can enter specifics about your trade-in. When you submit the information you will be shown the approximate value.
Even if they aren't interested, they will recycle your old stuff for free. It is also possible to handle all of this online and mail your old but functional stuff to them. Follow the link above to see details on how it works.
