PBTech's Black Friday isn't the same as everyone else's Black Friday. For most, it will be 29 November this year (the day after Thanksgiving in the States), though some retailers do seem to be starting "Black the Second Half of November" Sales.

Bought the MI Robot vacuum (1st Gen) for 349.   Went in late to the CHCH store, saw people queuing up at 2pm in the sun when I drove past!!!

 

Very pleased with the vacuum as I had been looking for a price drop after reading reviews

 

 

 

cheers

Been looking at RAM, video cards, and sound cards. Everything I've looked at says "out of stock". Seems like a bit of a scam sale to me. I'll be checking back later tomorrow morning to see if these items are magically back in stock in at their usual retail price.

i bought another 16gb ram.  Was about $30 cheaper.  But I was aiming for matched brand/speed with my existing 32gb.

Surprise surprise this appears to be the case, was trying to get a Mi Band 4 during the sale and it was showing out of stock, checked again now and it’s back in stock at regular price. Typical PB Tech tactics!
