I’ve been putting together this list of the five hottest deals for a couple of weeks now, and the variety of deals available is always refreshing. I often end up with an elective mix of deals that have a little something for everyone; from the outdoorsy folk to hardcore gamers and the party people. This week is no different: the round-up of the hottest deals on Buckscoop takes us from a trip to the supermarket to an exotic holiday on one of the Pacific Islands and there is even the chance to do a little something for charity.
So here we go, counting down from 5 to 1, I think you are going to have no trouble finding something that suits your fancy.
If you are on your way to do your weekly grocery shopping and you happen to be from Victoria then hold your horses because I have treat for you. Today’s edition of the Herald Sun has a coupon on page 8 that allows you to get $10 off any purchase of $100 or more at Coles. This deal is only valid for this weekend and excludes purchases of gift cards, mobile recharge, calling cards and tobacco related products. You should also note that this deal is not valid at Coles Express or Coles Online. According to the fine print the deal cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, so it is best to check with the store if the $100 can include purchases of items that are on sale.
Next up is a sale on some sweet dresses at Princess Polly. The site has a whole list of dresses and tops on at sale at prices that are up to 66% off the regular retail price. To sweeten the deal you can actually pick up a Princess Polly promo code from the vouchers page that will give you $10 off your purchase if you spend $30 or more.
They way to maximise the value in this deal is to therefore pick out something for $30 exactly giving you $10 off or a 33% saving. For instance the featured dress is this pink summer stroll dress that is down from $60. After the discount and the promo code, you can pick it up for just $20. The cherry on top is that the site offers free express shipping on all orders, so you will be able to wear your new digs in no time.
There’s always something for the gamers in the hottest deals of the week and this week you can download Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition directly from xbox.com.au for just $0.99. It hard to pass up a deal that gets you a game for less than a dollar!
Poster Captainjack has put up this absolute scorcher of a deal that allows you to get 55% off regular rates at Pacific Island hotels. Captainjack has done a little bit of homework and discovered that the deal can be stacked with a couple of existing HotelClub promotions to give you prices that are hard to beat. For instance you can get a week’s stay for two at an ocean view room at The Pearl South Pacific Resort for $694.94. This is more than $250 off the next best price.
I absolute love discounts on snazzy hotels because it means pampering and luxury without any guilt. In fact if I were you, I’d feel a little bit guilty about not taking up this deal. To really take you over the edge, you can even get free 30 minute tropical massages when sign up as a HotelClub member. Talk about a happy ending (not that kind, get your mind out of the gutter!!). You get to save money and get pampered while on holiday at a picturesque Pacific Island resort.
Our humble little winner of the week is this Humble Bundle that allows you to pay what you want on selected Nordic Games. The minimum price is $1 and you get to choose from
- Red Faction:Armageddon
- Supreme Commander
- Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
- The Guild 2
- Neighbours From Hell Compilation
If you are willing to pay $6 or more, you are also entitled to the download codes for these games
- Darksiders II
- Painkiller: Hell & Damnation
- SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny
I think it is a great offer and the best part is that you are entitled to control exactly who gets your contribution- the site lets you determine how much of the amount you pay goes to charity and how much goes to the site.
So there you have it, top notch excuses on why you need to go on holiday, game away and spoil yourself with a brand new dress. It sounds like the recipe for a great weekend!
