Our awesome, not-so-secret Amazon hacks

Amazon is fast, convenient and easy to use - and millions of us use it to buy everything from books to cat litter. But are you always getting a good deal on Amazon? You will be with our awesome, not-so-secret hacks.

Check when it was cheapest 

We love the site camelcamelcamel. Just pop in the url of the item you want to purchase, and camelcamelcamel will throw up the price history for that item. This is really useful when you’re on the fence about purchasing something - if it’s shot up in price, give it a couple of weeks and see if it comes back down.

Let’s look at Lightning Deals

Lightning Deals are a great way to save money, particularly on pricey items like laptops and other tech. Amazon offers some pretty hefty discounts on some items, and there’s a timer on each item displaying how long you can get this deal for. There’s also a strict amount they sell at these discounted prices, and so you have to get in before they sell out.

Wander around the warehouse 

Amazon’s Warehouse Deals are also a great place to grab a bargain. These are items that have been returned to Amazon and can’t be sold as ‘new’ - they might be refurbished, or the box may be a bit damaged. The only difference is you won’t get a warranty from the original manufacturer - but you do get one from Amazon itself. You can get a fair amount off when you buy through the Warehouse though - and if you’re not satisfied with what you receive, you can return it - just like a normal purchase!

Earn Amazon vouchers

If you’re spending a lot of money on Amazon (and if you’re reading this you probably are) then this is a great way to earn some vouchers to take the edge off. Download the Indeed Job Spotter app, and every time you see a job advert in the real world, snap a photo and upload it. These get converted into points, which you can then exchange for Amazon vouchers.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for a refurbished computer, cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
