Quick Tip: Save Money on Cables

Companies love profit margins, as they should. This is all around us: Soft drinks at fast food restaurants cost the owner pennies per cup, but you pay over a dollar. Huge profits. Sending a text costs the mobile carrier next to nothing, but they’ll charge $20 for an unlimited monthly plan. They’re raking in the dough. The same principle applies to computer and smartphone cables, but you can get around this if you know where to look.

See it in action

HDMI cables are a great example of this idea. Check out this offering pulled from BestBuy’s website:

expensive cable MachMachines

Hey now, 4.7 out of 5 stars that must be a good deal!

 

Thirty bucks, that’s a fair price for an HDMI cable, right? Well take a look at this:

Two fairly similar cables, two very different prices. Surely one’s much better than the other, right? Not really–both cables do exactly the same thing. Furthermore, the cheaper cable is two feet longer! So why is the first even an option? Marketing. Sometimes the price of a product doesn’t reflect its value, it simply reflects how much people are willing to pay for the item. Consumers are willing to spend thirty dollars on an HDMI cable, so sell it to them.

The only HDMI cable option showcased in a brick and mortar store is usually the “Super Hyper-Diamond Deluxe Cable” for fifty dollars. It might be all you’ve ever known, because it’s all they’ve ever shown.

It doesn’t have to be this way any longer.

Show me the Money

We promised to save you money, so here it goes. There are a couple vendors that sell no-frills cables at extremely discounted prices.

The first option is Amazon Basics

. The internet powerhouse stocks a line of cheap cables (and a myriad of other goods) that get the job done just as well as anything else. You can even get cheap Apple approved Lightning cables
 for your iPhone.

Next up is Monoprice

. The company operates on a similar principle to Amazon Basics. They stock items that are much cheaper than the competition while being just as good. The company sells audio equipment, computer accessories, just about every type of cable you could ever need, and so much more.

Here: This “Premium” 6 foot micro-USB cable from monoprice is only three dollars. You can’t beat that! The list goes on and on.

Anytime MachMachines needs a cable, we turn to one of these two options. They’re dirt cheap and they do exactly the same thing as more expensive choices.

Yes, we admit that these cables aren’t as sexy as the more expensive options. You have to ask yourself: Does a cable really have to be “sexy”? We say it doesn’t. Please, do yourself a favor and stop over-spending on cables. Your wallet will thank you.
