Being Resourceful

A Savvy Shopper's Guide to Bargains, Deals, & Freebies

FREE Tech Support! May 16, 2010

CORRECTION (5/16 3:15pm): Real Simple’s article was incorrect. According to the Sam’s Club site, the free tech support is only for items purchased at Sam’s. Sorry folks!


I just read the MOST AMAZING little article in the June 2010 issue of Real Simple (p. 192), and learned something INCREDIBLY VALUABLE!

“[Sam’s Club] now offers its members FREE TECH SUPPORT on electronic devices, even if they weren’t purchased at Sam’s Club. Experts are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide assistance with installation, setup, and troubleshooting on computers, TVs, home-theater systems, digital-music players, and more.”

WOW! FREE TECH SUPPORT! All you have to do is be a Sam’s Club member (~$40/year) and call toll-free (877) 758-4346.

Now, that’s a number to put on speed dial!
