5 Ways to Upgrade your Tech on a Budget


With the speed technology evolving it can often feel important to keep up, especially if you work in a digital profession. Of course updating all of your tech constantly would be incredibly expensive (and feel constant!), however there are lots of tips and tricks you can pick up to help you save money. From buying second hand to trading in your old devices, buying new tech doesn't have to be difficult. With that in mind, here are 5 ways to upgrade your tech on a budget.

Buy Second Hand
One of the best ways to upgrade your tech without having to buy at high prices is to purchase things second hand. Although you may have to wait a couple of months for the latest technology, buying second hand is a great way to save as much money as possible. Whether you’re buying off a friend, visiting a second-hand store or you use local sales groups on Facebook, you may be surprised how much money you could save.

Buy on Finance
If you’re looking to buy something that is a little more expensive, but you don’t have the money to buy it upfront, you might want to consider buying it on finance. Although you may end up having to pay more, spreading the cost over a set number of months is a great way to ensure you can afford the tech you’re buying.

Trade-In Old Devices
Depending on what you’re buying, you might find that you’re able to trade in your old device. Usually common with mobile phones, this will give you a portion of the funds to put towards the cost. 

Rent Instead of Buy
Another great way to upgrade your tech on a budget is to consider renting instead of buying. Using renting sites such as Difrent Appliance Rentals, you can choose to split the rental cost across a number of months. Although you won’t fully own the product until you complete payment, you will still be able to use and enjoy it while paying it off. You are usually able to exchange to a newer model once your contract is up to, which is another bonus.

Choose a Lower Model
Finally, you might want to consider choosing a lower model. Although there may be something newer and better to choose from, choosing a model that is still above your current piece of tech is a great way to save a little bit of money. Usually, after a new release, older models are dramatically released in cost but the product can be just as good!
