Can you believe it is time to start thinking about holiday shopping! How in the world is it already the end of October and time to start thinking about the holidays. I am pretty sure it was just Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day like a few weeks ago. I am struggling to wrap my brain around holiday shopping. While I was in the Philippines this past week all I heard was Christmas music. It was crazy sitting in a pizza restaurant in Manila listening to Christmas carols. I couldn’t help but giggle a bit at the randomness of it all.
Now that I am back home I am looking at the calendar and getting my brain wrapped around holiday prep, Christmas cards, holiday shopping and so much more. Thankfully Best Buy makes holiday shopping so easy. As most of you know, we have been Best Buy ambassadors this year which have given us the opportunity to learn a lot about Best Buy and use their services for a variety of products.
Right before I headed off to the Philippines I decided to treat myself to a much needed holiday gift. I have needed to upgrade my laptop for longer than I should admit. I kept putting it off because I wasn’t ready to make a decision on what I needed. I was worried that all the tech mumbo jumbo would be way over my head and I would get discouraged during the buying process.
John and I headed to Best Buy and I have to say it was the easiest shopping experience I have had in a really long time. Darrick helped us out in the computer section of our local Spokane Best Buy and made the entire process so easy. I explained to Darrick that I needed a laptop that could handle my travel schedule, be small enough to use on a tray table on a plane, be lightweight, able to handle a ton of photos and shut down quickly.
Darrick showed me two or three laptops and explained the benefits and cons of each laptop in easy to understand terms. After a few minutes, we agreed that the HP Spectre 360 laptop would fit my needs perfectly. We quickly processed my purchase and I was headed home with my brand new laptop. After two weeks of using the new laptop I have to tell you I wish I would have upgraded a lot sooner. During my trip to the Philippines, I was able to get so much work done quickly and easily. I came home way ahead of schedule for projects and didn’t feel like I had an elephant sitting on my shoulders to battle along with jetlag.
While I was gone John headed to Best Buy and picked up a new laptop for himself also. He kept hearing how amazing mine was and decided it was time to also upgrade his laptop. Now we have matching laptops and can get so much work done while traveling. I love how easy Best Buy made it to get exactly what we needed!
The Best Buy associates in the computer section answered all of our questions easily and made sure we had the information we needed without overwhelming us with a ton of tech jargon and specs that we didn’t need to know. They easily showed us the products that fit our needs and saved us so much time and energy. I would have been wandering the laptops for hours without their help trying to figure out which ones fit with our specific needs.
When we checked out one thing I loved was they checked to make sure the prices we were paying for the laptops were the lowest price available. They pulled out their phones and helped us check online to make sure that Best Buy was offering the best price, which they were! Darrick and all of the guys made sure that we had the best service possible during our shopping trip.
