2nd Costco Shopping in 2021 – $122.24 today / $229.48 this year
I ordered a Samsung Galaxy 8″ Tab A from Costco website.
I have a 9 year old iPad that’s becoming obsolete. I did a quick price check and Costco had the best price on an 8″ Galaxy A. After using the iPad for 9 years, I wanted a smaller tablet. I got the silver one.
I have a desktop computer, a notebook computer, and a smartphone. Having all those, I still feel the need for a tablet. Tablet often comes in handy, for example, when I’m in the kitchen. Also, when I watch TV, I often check the web for more information. When I do, I will not stop watching TV and walk over to my computer. Instead, I would pick up a mobile device. And I refuse to look at a tiny screen like a savage. I may not really need a tablet, but
Apple products are too expensive for me. So, I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy any Apple product until my retirement is taken care of (minimum $2 Million in savings). So, I may never buy another Apple product in my life. There is nothing wrong if you buy and enjoy Apple products. We have different financial priorities – that’s all. For example, I spend more money on Italian leather than most people spend on iPhones and iPads.
My iPad looks brand new, although it’s 9 years old. I hope this cheaper tablet will last 9 years, hopefully, longer.
