Featherston st (Wgtn) still has several iPhones and a heap of Macbooks with bugger all off... hopefully they get serious with clearing these soon as the wife would love to go back to iOS - there's not much else left in store, or of the store.

Sylvia park is useless. Tables of tatty opened things and a few tubs of cables. 2 junk laptops with minimal discount still.

Do you know what Iphones they had and what the prices were? Im tempted to buy one, for a good price.

Still only 5% off standard retail... which is "bugger all" particularly as the phones (5C, 5S, and i think some 6's too) are all marked as demo or returns... I'm happy to buy one for a good price too - hopefully they get marked down (substantially).

I just went to Riccarton again, not sure why I bothered.

The Apple Watch sports have 25% off making them still far too much to bother with DSE (only cheaper than Apple themselves by roughly $20)

The more expensive Apple watches only have 15% off and are around $870 (which is far more than I would consider paying) and they are also quite often more expensive than other options.

Talking to one of the sales staff from the Northwood store (which is already closed) here in Christchurch, he seems to think they won't come down much more. I doubt I'll bother coming back.

So what are they going to do with them then?

It might be your lucky day. I saw Sims at porirua for 1.50. They had spark, skinny and 2 degrees from what I could see.

It simply isn't worth buying from them for piss all saving. I would prefer to pay more to a company that is going to be around ina year to help with warranty or CGA claims if they occur.

Just had a look in Featherston Street for the hell of it while walking past. Store is practically empty but they did have 6 32gb Ipods left at 25% off. If they go down further on the final day to clear them I might grab one.
