Budget Challenge

Challenges | over 5 years ago

This week on The Gadget Show Suzi Perry and Jon Bentley are set a challenge: who can make the most money from their old gadgets? In part one, armed with a comparable pile of old tech Suzi decides to sell her tech online while Jon hits the High Street. They both divulge a stack of tips for attracting lots of hits and high bids whilst ultimately getting the best price when selling in the likes of Cash Converters, Computer Exchange and tech fairs. In the second part of the challenge both Suzi and Jon have to buy the very best TV and laptop they can with the proceeds from part one. Again they both adopt different approaches and give a host of tips on where to find cheap tech.

Budget Challenge is tagged with cheap and budget. Select a tag (cheap, for example) to find everything on The Gadget Show about the subject.
