iphone 7 plus 256gb in nz , $1829 nzd


 


from au , : $1614 nzd


 


take out gst while coming back : 1466$ nzd


 


so a saving of apprx = $363


 


sometimes jetstar has $129 fare to sydney etc. so return fare $258


 


[b]and then after having a holiday you still save $105 :)[b]

you can either do same day return flights ( customs may ask a extra question ;) ) OR have a relative who you can crash for a night?

 

 

 

Emirates came up with a $169pp one way flight today so may be a extra good chance for a quick holiday :)

$169 one way but return significantly more due to Aussie departure taxes.

So what cases are everyone getting. And where from. Apple don't have a very large variety to choose from.

I ordered at 7:04pm (according to the email from Apple) which as far as I know was as soon as preorders went live (I believe there was a couple minutes delay). Did anyone else order this model and if so what shipping dates are people getting?

I have always used Sena cases with my iPhones. I like the sleeve style cases, because they protect the device in transit and can be tossed aside when the device is in use. Also, they remind me of the cases that used to be supplied with the old HP scientific calculators!

Just ordered the iphone 7 version of the $8.50 case i have on my 6S.

It is cheap but has features i like like rubber part for the phone and good size pockets for cards and case.

Also ordered a new tempered glass screen protector.

Wish I'd seen their leather case with the slots on the back half an hour ago.

Im assuming the people who got the following reply from spark a few days ago will receive their iPhones on Friday?

 

Thanks for choosing Spark.

 

 

 

Your phone is coming soon!

 

We’ll do our best to deliver your phone as close to launch date (16 September) as possible.

 

 Once your phone has been dispatched, you’ll receive a text or email from us with the Track & Trace."

 

 

 

Il be getting a 6S+ glass screen protector on friday from the shops as the 7+ screen looks identical to the 6S+ so it should fit with no problems.

I use the Sena Heritage Ultraslim case for my 6S Plus, definitely recommend it

 

I got the one from ikonic edge as well, but it was such a tight fit that it was constantly pressing the volume and/or power buttons. In addition to that the "micro suede" strands ended up getting ripped off and wedged in between the screen/rubber gasket so I stopped using it
