Pre-Comex 2014 Hot Deals

As always, you can check out the HardwareZone Tech Show Portal for all the deals at the show when the information becomes available. But you probably don't know that there are offers to be had even before the show starts. That's right, many products from brands like Apple, Dell, Razer, Samsung, Seagate, and Sony can be pre-purchased from the Comex Hot Deals site from August 20 to 23 at a discount (some as much as 50% off), and then collected (with the exception of Sony Experia Z Ultra) on-site at the show from August 28 to 31.

These hot product deals will be released daily (from August 20 to 23) at 11am, and stocks are limited, so act fast!

In addition, the organizer is also giving away Airbnb $50 travel coupon (with minimum spend of $100, first time users only) for all pre-Comex hot deals purchases.
