Well. Here we are. Another year. Another sales thread. It wasn't very exciting last year. Let's see how 2019 stacks up.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

The Warehouse mailer arrived yesterday and went straight out in the recycling bin so I couldn't tell you if there was anything exciting.

And likewise, the Briscoes mailer arrived yesterday and went straight out in the recycling bin so I couldn't tell anyone if they were having a sale or not..

I wonder if the LG 65" C9 OLED TV will get any lower than $4,898.

Grabaseat sales have been fairly poor this year. I usually manage to grab one of their Xmas / Boxing Day deep-discount sales to go back to the states but there has been nothing so far.

 

I also noticed some places are running their Boxing Day sales starting about a week in advance now. Bit of a scam really.

Haven't heard of Van Dyks before, and no stores in Auckland. Are they legit?

I've heard of them, but not used them personally

 

They have a physical shop in Putaruru if that counts for anything

I bought mine from Noel Leeming a couple of weeks ago for 3999. See if they will price match

Tip for next year, we grabbed AKL- HOU for around $750 return over Christmas / Early-mid Jan , came up on  22 November for a few days  on Grabaseat. 

 

Only problem from Houston is not every US internal airline uses that airport.

That's a fairly average price. Typically I can get $600~ r/t ex.CHC to LAX / SFO. Going for $750 ex. AKL seems $$$$ to me.
