If you are looking to buy a spy pen, for whatever the reason, you are likely to turn to the internet.  Online shopping is nice, easy, and convenient.  But, you will soon find that you have many options.  Hundreds of online retailers sell spy pens and there are thousands of products to choose from.  What should you do?

When shopping online, you have two main options.  They involve first researching the types of spy pens and then making a purchase.  The second option is ideal if you already know what you are looking for you can start shopping right away.

If you are new to buying a spy pen, you may want to do a little bit of research first.  A great website to do this is with is Amazon.com.  Amazon sells these products, but they also allow consumers to rate and review.  You are likely to get the best information available from this website.  For example, SpyCrushers makes a Pro Series 720p HD Spy Pen Camera. Selling for just under $30, it has its pros and cons, which you can read on Amazon.com.  For example, the biggest pros are that it’s easy to use and has expectedly great video recording and takes amazing photos based on the reviews posted by Amazon customers.  The biggest complaint was that it does not feature an audio only recording feature like other more expensive competitive models.

In addition to reading reviews, it is important to familiarize yourself with all of the spy pens available.  You may know that you want a hidden camera, but what type?  Do you know that you have a countless number of options?  You do.  There are HD, audio only, audio and video, audio, video & webcam, motion detection, and much more.  If this is your first time buying a spy pen, know what is available before you make your purchase.  Doing so allows you to choose the spy pen camera that best fits your needs, whether it be for a purpose or for fun.

Once you have decided what type of spy pen you would like to purchase, like a 720p or 1080p or standard AVI model you are ready to make your purchase.  As stated above, you can buy products and read reviews at Amazon.  Just because you read reviews there, it does not mean you need to make a purchase.  In fact, you should turn to a standard internet search.  Perform a search with the name of the product or brand name of who you would like to buy from.

Your standard internet search should turn up a number of results.  These will be companies selling the spy pen.  Even if you are looking for a specific model, you will have multiple buying options.  Grab a pen and paper.  Write down the website name or address, the product they sell, and for how much.  Do this for a number of websites.  When finished, look at your notes.  Find the one that best suits your budget and needs.  Spy pens can get expensive, so always compare first.  You may be surprised how different selling prices are for the very same product.

Next, you are ready to place your order.  When doing so, take into consideration your use.  Are you looking to use your spy pen to spy on your spouse, whom you suspect may be cheating?  If so, not do make the purchase on a joint credit card and do not arrange for a home delivery, unless you can be sure you will be home to intercept the package.


Finally, don’t be afraid to return a product.  Whether you buy a spy pen to have fun with at home or if you want to solve a problem, make sure you purchased a good quality product from a reputable company who offer a purchase guarantee. If you set up a hidden camera and can’t see a clear picture or can’t hear the words someone is speaking on an audio recorder, try to return.  There is no use keeping a spy pen you cannot use.
