When you're shopping for tech online, you want to spend your money somewhere that sells legitimate products at a good price, preferably with free shipping and a flexible return policy. These are the electronics stores we turn to when it's time to freshen up our collection of gadgets and gizmos, whether we're in need of a smart refrigerator, a new pair of headphones or something else.

Whatever you’re looking for, chances are Amazon has it.
Seek out Amazon’s own branded tech like the Kindle, Echo, Fire and Alexa or browse its Electronics Showcase to see the latest and greatest. Of course, you can also shop popular brands like Roku, Google and Insignia. We like that Amazon lets you search by the year each electronics product was made.
Competitive prices on nearly all tech under the sun.
Newegg is especially great if you’re building a computer on your own or want to customize your home office setup. Use the Built Your Own PC tool to jump start your next project. It also has best-in-class search filters to help you quickly find what you need.
Word, Excel and Teams come preloaded onto your laptop.
Choose Microsoft if you’re already a super fan of its suite of business apps. For gamers, it has a tool that lets you design your own Xbox — fun to play around with, whether or not you buy.
An innovative leader in the electronics industry.
Whether you’re dabbling in virtual reality or just need a new home printer, HP can hook you up with some of the best new products in tech. We love that it uses recycled plastic in many of its products. Since 2016, it’s repurposed nearly two million pounds of plastic found in the ocean.

We recommend shopping Dell’s outlet to get computers, monitors and more at a discount. It sells refurbished and overstock products for cheaper than brand new.
If you’re not sure what you need, use Dell’s live chat feature to get personalized help.
Chromebooks and Galaxy tablets galore.
Samsung lets you trade in your old mobile tablets and cell phones to get credit toward a brand new gadget. We’re also obsessed with Samsung’s smart products for the home, like a washer and dryer that you can control from your phone. Even if you don’t need a new appliance, it’s worth browsing to get inspired.
Shop everything from e-readers to smart watches, speakers and even smart phone sterilizers.
Get an easy 5% back on your purchase when you pay using a Target RedCard. Target also frequently runs promotions that reward you with a gift card when you buy specific tech — like a $350 gift card for buying the Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G.
Brand new and refurbished electronics from brands like HP, Apple, Dell and Samsung.
Sign up for a free trial of Walmart+ to get free shipping on your order. You can generally find brand name products for over 50% off when you shop Walmart’s array of refurbished laptops, monitors and tablets.
