DEALS: Free Movie Ticket with your Purchase of 2x Drinks and Water at any Shell Select

Get a free Nu Metro Movie ticket (2D only) with every purchase of 2 x 500ml Coke products and a 750ml Bonaqua pump for only R25.95
If you consider that 2 x 500ml Cokes will cost about R8 each and ignore the the water, then essentially you are paying R10 for a Nu Metro Movie ticket which is less than half of the half price week day tickets.
Make sure you ask the cashier if they still have tickets available as the one Shell Select that I approached was sold out but I did manage to get from another store.
This special is valid only until the 13 January 2013 or while stocks last.
The free movie ticket is valid till the 13th of April 2013.

DEAL ALTERNATIVE: Groupon Vs. Daddy's Deals - PVP Game System

On the 17th October I posted a DEAL FAIL for Groupon selling the PVP game system for R399 as shown below. I estimated that it was 300% overvalued based on the pre-discounted value. (Link to article)

In November Groupon was selling it again on special for the same overvalued price as shown below.

Daddy's Deals has now posted the same / similar PVP gaming system with a free Multimedia speaker for R299.
Now at R299 it is still slightly over valued compared to the China Town R250 price but at least you get a Multimedia speaker with it. Click on the image below for a link to the deal.

The pre-discounted price that Daddy's Deals has shown below of R599 is still 240% overpriced but at least their discount and end price is lower and more realistic than the Groupon deal.

So as far as Groupon Vs. Daddy's Deals go this is a win for Daddy's Deals.

DEALS: Samsung P6200 Tablet on Special

Dionwired is offering the SAMSUNG P6200 7inch tablet for R3500.

While this is not an amazing deal it is the lowest price I found for this tablet which has 3G built in.
The next lowest was for R3800 at CATS Digital (LINK)
Note: This is the older model now and has been replaced with the TAB 2 range of Samsung tablets.

Dionwired online also has a 40" Samsung Series 5 LED Smart TV for R5000. This is a good price for a 40" TV with LAN, Smart and DLNA functions. (LINK)

DEAL FAIL: iPad 4 offering on Groupon more expensive than recommended retail

Groupon is selling the newly released iPad 4 for more than the recommended retail price.

Above is a snapshot of the prices that Groupon is offering on their iPad deal while the recommended retail price as reported by Mybraodband.co.za is shown below.
  • 16 GB iPad 4 with Wi-Fi + Cellular: R6,499
  • 32 GB iPad 4 with Wi-Fi + Cellular: R7,499
  • 64 GB iPad 4 with Wi-Fi + Cellular: R8,599

The 16, 32 and 64GB are all R900 above the retail price.
My suggestion, wait a week and buy it from Dionwired or the iStore at the recommended retail price.
And if you have discovery vitality you might even get more discount at the iStore, but not sure if that special is still applicable.

NOTE: Please take a look at their iPhone 5 deal as well, I have a suspicion that this is also overpriced but I am waiting for official pricing on the iPhone 5 before I can confirm this.
