Hong Kong/China web sites - various deals and discounts
I thought that it might be an idea to have a list in one location of the most common/popular websites providing cheap gadgets etc, generally sourced directly from China and (usually) with free shipping. Where there's a special at the moment, I'll add that in.
When buying stuff from them be aware that shipping can take a while, if you buy more than one thing at the same time, it may take longer as the goods will frequently be held for a while until all items are available to ship. Items that look like a name brand, or even have a name brand logo on them may be the real thing (many of these are made in china and sometimes the factory has excess), or they may be rejects, or they may be knock-offs. If you assume that they are knock-offs then you won't be disappointed. If they turn out to be genuine, then bonus.
With many of the sites, you accrue points on purchasing items, and eventually can use those points to buy other items.
