Games and gadget folk this week is the week for you. There are some great deals on gaming bundles as well as fantastic prices on a smart phone and a tablet. I must point out that two of the hottest deals of the week (a snazzy Oral B toothbrush and a St Goliath sonic hoody) were such scorchers that they sold out really fast. This just highlights the importance of acting fast, especially in the world of online sales. So my advice then is to make sure you take advantage of Buckscoop's hottest deals as soon as they hit the Deals page rather than waiting for this round-up.
If you are in the market for a new smartphone, the latest Sony Xperia Z2 might be an option worth looking at. You can get it at Sony Store for $768.95 inclusive of delivery. The Sony Store price includes all the basics like a USB cable, charger and adapter. According to the post, there are other stores which are selling it with extras like portable speakers and noise-cancelling earphones, but these outlets are charging over $130 extra for shipping. You can pick up a simple portable speaker and a pair of noise-cancelling ear buds for well under $130 so the best deal is over at Sony Store.
GreenMan Gaming is offering some pretty stellar prices on selected PC games. The complete GTA bundle is $9.30 while the LA Noire Bundle is $6.50. The GTA Bundle includes
* Grand Theft Auto III
* Grand Theft Auto Vice City
* Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
* Grand Theft Auto IV
* Grand Theft Auto IV Episodes From Liberty City
There is also a 20% off discount code that you can use if you spend a minimum of $10, you could purchase these bundles together or add a cheap extra like Kung Fu Strike DLC for $0.74. Check out the post for links and the promo code.
The ASUS 1A050A Google Nexus 7” 32GB WiFi Tablet is going at $252 delivered at Bing Lee. If you want save another $5, you can simply opt for in-store pick up. Gadget lovers do take note that this is the 2013 model. With other outlets charging close to $300 and up, it’s a pretty good deal from Bing Lee- well worthy of the third place spot.
Move over Starbucks because coffee culture has moved out of the café and right to your kitchen counter top. Coffee machines like this Breville Nespresso Inissia Coffee Machine are becoming hugely popular and right now you can get this sleek number for just $138. This is thanks to a $60 cashback offer from Nespresso (valid until 18th May). To sweeten the deal, Harvey Norman are also throwing in a $60 EFTPOS gift card so you actually end up paying just $78 for the Breville machine. The $60 credit can be used to stock up on the coffee capsules/pods.
Most stores are also offering the Nespresso cashback so what seals the deal for me is that extra $60 EFTPOS gift card.
The hottest deal of the week comes from 365 Games where Dirt 2 is going at $1.80! A price of under $2 for an awesome game is definitely something to celebrate.
