Just saw this on noel leeming site and thought its worth sharing as they have been in the news lately by advertising the normal pricing as special. This one goes one step further. The Huawei Mate 8 is $699 on their site however when bundled with a 32GB micro SD card its $1099. I have never come across a $400 micro SD card. Don't know if their online team even monitors these things.

I've come across SD and C.F. Cards at that price and much more - up to $1200 in fact. Not a tiny 32Gb msd though.

It could be a NZ speciality.

 

I often see things like 500g of Mainland Tasty Cheddar for $7.99 and a Kilo for $11.99 - and people with poor maths skills putting several 500g blocks in the trolley...!

 

Perhaps it's all part of a giant maths test of the nation?

 

How much is NL selling the MSD card on it's own for?

I get the 500g blocks because the 1kg ones are unwieldy and go mouldy before I can get through them. Buying two 500g blocks, though... that's a bit of a head scratcher.

Well my Kingston 128GB micro SD card from Tardme was only $55 but my computer will only format it to 21GB. Perhaps this 32GB card is actually 32GB.

I bought a 500g block of Mainland Vintage cheddar on the weekend for $7.50. I had initially grabbed the 250g block (more suited to my need), but that was $8. So I paid 50c less for double the amount of the exact same product.

Maybe I am being the fun police here but it does seem like they discounted one version of the phone and not the other. This does however make for entertaining reading.

 

On the cheese related front it is often better to buy smaller quantities even if only slightly cheaper than the larger ones, I do this if I simply don't need a kg of cheese I will buy the smaller one, however if it is cheaper to buy a 500g vs a 250g then I'd be going for the 500g

 

BTW I really hate cheese.

You are assuming that you have the same usage patterns as the people buying the things to come up with a judgement like that.

 

I will buy 1.5l cokes even when the 2.25l works out cheaper simply because the 2.25s do not fit in the shelves of the fridge so have to be layed down, and therefore go flat faster.

 

I buy the smallest laundry powder because otherwise they go hard before I have finished the box stored in the laundry.

 

I get the smallest cheese and butter since otherwise they deteriorate before I finish them.

 

I will get 2 of 1 litre milks since that means I have milk in both fridges and a 2l will go off before finished.
