You can buy cheap pads and pens for as little as $5, and that’s just for the basic models, according to a report from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).
That’s $1 less than the sticker price on the same pad or pen.
The report also details how to pick up inexpensive pads and pencils.
In total, the report estimated the average consumer would save $10 on a $1 purchase.
There are some caveats to the report, however.
The CEA also estimated that, even if you use the CEA’s recommendations, you may be paying more than $100 for the same basic purchase.
So you should probably save money by saving some cash for the pads and pen, and not by going cheap on them.
Here’s how you can save money on the cheapest pads and cheap pens.
