100%. I did the math back when it was $500 airpoints and it was working out pretty good. Then all the extra perks, made $80 at Countdown,...

Yeah I know but airpods suck haha. Definitely not worth the $200 retail price, for me at least.

Is it better to buy from Apple direct or JB Hifi? Just deciding whether it's worth saving $40. Anyone dealt with either for returns or...

Sony 65" A95K $5399, A80K 65" $3149, LG 55" C2 $2518 & More + Shipping @ Noel Leeming, The Market (Requires MarketClub)
Some pretty outrageous prices on all the TVs at Noel Leeming but with an extra 10% off at TheMarket. A few stand outs: Sony BRAVIA XR 65...

Photowarehouse via duty free is the best hack for buying expensive cameras. I've made a few purchases here. Also worth noting, GST is 15%...

Honestly, I'd rather buy the 2l ones at $6.50. I feel like a dick buying 10 bottles...

Oh and you don't seem to be able to respond to automated texts. e.g. your hairdresser automatically texts you to say "please confirm your...

This is such a good deal. I bought it last year and honestly it's been fine. 2degrees customer service is a bit better and i swear I've had...

I wonder if Noel Leeming is keeping their best deals off TheMarket because of the 10% off. Did anyone find this on there?
18/11/2022 - 13:07
Yeah, it's mainly the Noel Leeming Black Friday Deals + 10% Off that I'm holding out for. Singles day isn't really a big deal in NZ so I...

This is such a good deal, I bought the 245 last year for around $330 and just bought the 745 now for $365. If anyone is wondering, here are...

Yes to 3rd party. In terms of not as good, I'm not really able to answer that. The quality-control is definitely worse, but I don't feel...

Oh interesting, looks like you are right. I am pretty confident mine isn't lithium ion!
04/09/2022 - 16:11
Yeah agreed, lithium ion would make a lot of sense.

I have this toothbrush and I am frustrated with the battery life. It's a couple of years old but after 4 brushes (a day for a couple) it...

Aliexpress is the place to get Oral B heads. Though once I got a packet and they didn't fit so not super consistent....but cheap enough...

As someone who lives in Grafton, not sure I'd consider anything on the other side of the motorway as Grafton.
31/08/2022 - 21:27
Interesting, comes out to be a similar price to the new Macbook Air M2 with 512gb and 16gb. I suspect this has a better screen and a fan...

I bought about 6 pairs and considering buying more. Merino is the best material to wear for anything, but it does lack a bit of durability....

Any reason not to get your partner or whoever to just sign up for their own card? 500 airpoints vs 50 is a big difference. Obviously...

The Forerunner is a watch predominantly made for runners. It's a specialised watch and it depends whether you want a smartwatch for...

Absolutely agree with this advice, however, once you've viewed the TV in a Noel Leeming you can go online and save 10% on the same TV?
27/06/2022 - 21:05
Pretty much anything from Noel Leeming for 10% less.

Kobo 100%. Native integration with our local libraries means you can borrow and return books directly from your ereader. Yeah, sure you can...

In Blenheim?

I'd see this more as a solution if you've already purchased a Kindle ;) Or maybe if you really prefer a specific model of Kindle I suppose....
08/04/2022 - 13:10
It's best described as the difference between reading paper or a screen. You'd need to try it but ereaders really are more like reading on...
08/04/2022 - 13:06
The real Cheapies hack should be to buy a Kobo instead and borrow your books from the library. I've saved ~$500 (20 books) so far this year...

I have a blue one that's quite faded now but I think that's after a couple hundred days of wear outside in the sun, rather than from...
