Get the Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 + Docking Station for R3199 (42% off the retail price).

What I like about the Asus transformer with the keyboard is the additional battery life, USB and SD card reader that the keyboard provides.

USER REPORT: Deal Fail Fish Tank @ Groupon

I just received this via email.
Unfortunately I do not have the time today to write this up myself, as we are celebrating Eid, so it is coming to you via what I'm calling a "User Report".

"Here is yet another fail from Groupon that I would like to warn my fellow Hot SA Deals peeps about. The below aquarium set is incorrectly priced (R1500 rather than the more realistic +-R500).


My reference was the 2 local pet shops that sell these for R500 – R600, but the first online pet shop that I checked had it for R559…normal price!!!


Please warn our fellow deal seekers.

UPDATE - DEALS: Windows 8 Pro on Groupon for R599 (Sold Out), was it worth it?

The following information just became available on the windows.com website (LINK)
Get Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Download version for R299, or retail version for R529. See image below.
This pricing indicates that the Groupon deal was in fact overpriced (if it is the upgrade version as we suspect)


This morning Groupon sold a copy of Windows 8 Pro for R599.
Windows 8 is being launched internationally tomorrow (26 October 2012).
At the time of posting this it got sold out. I am posting this none the less to keep my readers informed.

Previous articles on MyBroadband have indicated that the upgrade pricing might be R699 if bought in a store or $39 (R350) if bought online (with a software download being required).

Nowhere does it state that the Groupon deal is an upgrade version which leads me to understand that it will function as a standalone new version and for R599 it is much cheaper than the previous Pro versions of Windows.

I have to put a disclaimer on this deal as Microsoft has been slightly secretive with the pricing and we will only know for sure that this deal is worthwhile when the software is launched tomorrow. And with Groupon's recent over inflated money making products I am wearier than ever, especially seeing that this special price ends at mid-night today.

They also have a disclaimer that you might have to wait up to 4 weeks for delivery. For those tech savvy people, this will be unacceptable.

That being said, I could be wrong and this could very well be a great deal.
Please comment below. By tomorrow we should be able to determine if this was a deal or not.

Thanks Hanno, Minnaar and Quayum for informing me about this deal.

Groupon - Sometimes Cheap, Sometimes Expensive (Inflated Gold Price)

This morning I received the special in the image above from Groupon indicating that they are selling Gold at a discount of up to 70%. Very interested in this deal I checked the price of the deal against the market related gold price, as I usually do, and found that this offer was grossly misrepresented.
