Maybe your old clock radio just isn’t cutting it any more, or maybe you’re just tired of the speakers on your computer making everything sound like tin. Whatever your reason to upgrade your sound system, you can’t go wrong with Bose.

They can be a bit more expensive than some systems on the market, so we will look at how to save money on them.

Coupons and Groupons

Coupons are a great way to save money on all kinds of purchases, from your groceries to the vet bill. Sometimes you can find great deals for money off and other incentives to buy your new audio system. Always check on the Bose website for any deals, coupons new items, and discontinued systems that may be on sale or reduced to clear out of the store room.

Check on other sites, as well. There are Groupon sites, there are discounts and coupons available for almost anything you are looking for, so do a bit of research to find a good deal and really cut down on the retail price of the audio equipment.

Check Online

While you are looking for discounted coupons, check out for other sites that may sell these items. Online stores like Amazon or Ebay may have just what you need for a fraction of the price. You may be able to find the system or parts of the system you want or maybe just a new system that will be just right.

Gently Loved Equipment

There are other sites as well, for buying and selling, like Craigslist and others that you can find new and used equipment for sale. If you don’t mind a bit of wear and tear or the absence of a warranty, you can get just what you need at a much lower price. You need to be prepared to ask a few questions and make sure it works, which can be a bit tricky. As a rule, it can be a great way to save.

You can also ask around, your friends, your family or your co-workers or anywhere else you have the opportunity to be in a social situation. Asking about the Bose audio system for general information may just pry open a great deal of someone looking to sell theirs, maybe they are upgrading, maybe they are moving, or just don’t need it any longer.

Again, you need to be prepared to ask a few questions and if at all possible, try before you buy. It is always best to see it and try it before you get it delivered and find an empty shell.

Clearance Sales

Bargain hunters know the thrill of a warehouse sale and all the great deals you can find on items you never even knew you needed. Keep an eye out for deals, for notices about clear off sales and an eye on the Bose site, itself. They may have an annual or semi-annual sale to unload old stock or sell off an over stock and there you can find some great deals. These items will be priced at a fraction of the cost as the same items on the showroom floor.

DIY

That’s right, you can build one. Okay, maybe not you, but if you know someone who is even a little bit of a do it yourselfer, you can find easy instructions all over the internet on how you can build speakers and other components, with either used parts of an old stereo or separately purchased pieces. It’s a good idea to have at least a smidgen of an idea of what you’re doing, otherwise it may end up costing you more.

In today’s online and discount markets available, there is no reason to spend big dollars on something when you really don’t have to. Have a good look around and see if you can’t find a perfectly good system for a lot less. See you at the yard sale!
