Cyber Monday 2015: Chase away the Monday blues with more deals and discounts!

By Team HardwareZone - 30 Nov 2015

Cyber Monday deals 2015: Chase away the Monday blues with rampant consumerism

Chase away the Monday blues

Wait, Black Friday and now Cyber Monday? Yup, the Monday following Black Friday is called Cyber Monday, with deals of its own. Here are some that we’ve found.

As usual, the same legalese applies: Buyer beware, do your due diligence before buying your gear. An introduction here does not constitute an endorsement. We have no affiliation with the stores selling this stuff, so prices are apt to change and deals can vanish without a trace.

(Psst, check out our guide to Black Friday if you haven’t already, for things you should know before you click ‘buy,’ like tax, voltage differences, shipping, etc.)

Tablets
 

Kindle Deals

On Amazon, the Amazon Kindle is going for US$30 off at US$49.99, with free shipping to Singapore if you spend over US$125. This is the Kindle with a 6” touchscreen display, wi-fi, without a built-in light. You should know that US$49.99 gets you the Kindle “with special offers,” i.e. ads on the lock screen and home page. The Kindle without special offers is also selling at US$30 off at US$69.99.

The same Kindle is going on sale at Lazada for S$115.90 (U.P. S$168.80), with shipping at S$3. This costs more than Amazon’s offer at US$49.99 (approx. S$70), but you have to keep in mind that shipping from Amazon is only free if you spend over US$125 (approx. S$176).

The Kindle Paperwhite, with a 6” touchscreen with built-in light and Wi-Fi, is also discounted on Amazon, although not as much as the basic Kindle. It’s US$20 off the base price at US$99.99, for the version with special offers, and does not ship to Singapore.

The same Kindle Paperwhite is selling on Lazada at S$164 (U.P. S$196). It costs more than Amazon (approx. S$140), but Amazon doesn’t ship the Paperwhite to Singapore, so you’ll need to deal with the additional cost and hassle of using a forwarder.

IF you’re lucky and quick you still might be able to score a Kindle Paperwhite from Qoo10 at the price of only S$$97.00, available only until stocks last.
