A number of companies have been experimenting with VR to adapt it to the retail industry with one Chinese company using it to create a virtual cosmetic counter to buy goods from.

7-Eleven has been known recently to be selling one of the cheapest coffees that can be bought in Australia for $1. If you like your coffee in the morning to kick start your day then buying from the chain is certainly the cheapest way to do it, or so that was the case until Coles begun selling cheaper coffee at 0.80¢.

Chemist Warehouse Review and a Comparison with other Online Pharmacies

Posted by on May 19, 2016 at 8:16 AM

We’ve seen a growing interest in Chemist Warehouse deals and coupon code discounts on Buckscoop this year. However, they are not the only online pharmacy who we see deals being posted for. Therefore, I thought it would be valuable to give readers a review of Chemist Warehouse as well as a comparison between them and the other chemist “e-tailers” in Australia.

Chemist Warehouse Review and a Comparison with other Online Pharmacies

There are certainly advantages to using online pharmacies including scenarios where you may be feeling sick and not wanting to leave the house, or you’re trying to find ways to save money on your purchases. A very easy way to get discounts, for example, would be to head to Buckscoop’s Vouchers page to pick up a Chemist Warehouse coupon, an Amcal promotional code, or a Chemist Direct discount code to use during checkout (all from the comfort of your own home). Other people may find online pharmacies useful for buying personal drugs or products that get shipped to them in a discreet manner, rather than having to buy them in person over the counter. Deciding which chemist or pharmacy to buy from online will depend on what you’re type of product you’re after, as well as a few other factors. So let’s dive into that now with a review on some of the most popular ones in Australia.

Hand Picked Selection of the Top Easter Sales Currently On

Posted by on March 26, 2016 at 8:50 AM

During the first quarter of the year, we’re often left with a series of lacklustre sales and promotions from retailers once all the big discounts over the festive season have ended. The good news though, is that Easter is often a time where decent sales pop up across the Australian retail landscape. Therefore, I’ve hand picked a selection of what I believe to be some of the top Easter sales currently on at a variety of the most popular retailers here on Buckscoop.

For each one, I’ve broken down what the general Easter sale involves as well as highlighting whether we have any active deals or coupons for them on Buckscoop. Expect stores such as David Jones, Winemarket, Dissh and The Iconic to appear in this list, with some offering more than 50% off.
