Drove past the Noel Leeming "Biggest" sale at ASB Showgrounds this morning.
$5 to park your car. You've lost money before you've even got in the door tongue-out

Still didn't stop the massive queue...

I paid 1.80 for parking, as that was all the money I had in my pocket and it was quicker than having me turn around and leave :)


Some great deals there, especially in the big 4K TV's - I saw 4 of the 55" Samsung curved models walking out the door.  They have only been ranged for a couple of days and are over $1k less than current retail.

Thanks for that - worked well. Really moved the purchase into being a good deal :-)
Just a note - you have to edit the cart to apply the coupon, not at the payment end of the process.

Picked up a WD TV HD Live Media Player Gen 3, online, $74.99.

Another toy to play with, sigh ..




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Aye. It was a PriceSpy alert - had forgotten that I actually had an alert for this product - I was waiting for a price drop to around $125

DravidDavid:
linw: They have a laser printer for $9 after $30 cashback!! Sounds like a good deal to me if that model suited you.

They sell you the device cheap so they can nail you for marked up consumables at the same time you buy the printer and for when you need more ink for it.

It's actually cheaper now, to print with your printer until it runs out of ink, throw it away and go and buy another printer.


That is true, although some only come with starter cartridges to get around this. Not sure if this brother printer just has a starter one. A pity it isn't duplex.

I had a quick look on TM at third party toners and they were ~$40 for 1000 pages which is good value, not top quality but if you are buying a $4-9 printer..

At that price who cares if it's a starter cartridge? Just buy another 10 printers for the spares!

True, although not the most environmentally friendly solution :) . As it is a cash back redemption, would be quite a mission to fill in all those forms too.

edit: nvm found it

just loaded another $34 on the card hoping the cashback works - already $2k in debt but what is another $4 more thanks to our stellar economy and government.

 Spending more than what we can afford! yay!
