HWZ Deal Alert: 31st December 2015

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

Here it is – the last day of 2015. Regardless of whether you’ve got plans for a huge countdown party, a long weekend of revelry – or perhaps just lots of sleep – beckons. But before you usher in the new year, what better way to round off this one than with a bout of last minute shopping?


1.) Samsung 40-inch Full HD Flat Smart TV H5203 Series 5

Samsung Smart TV

If you’re looking to pick up a TV for cheap, you’re in luck. This 40-inch Samsung TV may not be the newest and greatest, but it sure is quite a bargain. It is going at S$598 on Lazada, 46% off its usual price of S$1,099!

It’s no 4K beast, but it does let you plug your USB drive or HDD directly into the TV and enjoy your movies, photos or music. There’s even a dedicated Soccer Mode that is tuned to bring out the colors of the soccer pitch and stadium, and also allows you to zoom in on selected areas of the screen to check out the action.

If you use Shopback, you can further drop the price to S$574 (for new Lazada customers). Shopback is a service that offers cashback for purchases you make through their website. Once you purchase something and it's recognized on your ShopBack account, you can then withdraw the cash (provided you've accumulated at least $10 in savings) to your bank account.


2.) Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2

The original Sound Blaster Roar was extraordinarily well-received, but this year’s Sound Blaster Roar 2 is even better. It is slightly smaller and lighter, and comes with useful features like Tera Bass, which is designed to boost the bass at lower volumes, giving your music some oomph in situations where you just want some background music. As we noted in our review, if you loved the first Sound Blaster Roar, you’ll like the Roar 2 as well.

Get them here from the Creative store at just S$229, more than S$100 off their usual price of S$378!


3.) Stylux Minimax UV Bed Cleaner

Are you doing some spring cleaning in preparation for the new year? This UV bed cleaner from Stylux can supposedly get rid of germs and dust mites in your bed, while also extracting all those icky skin cells you leave behind.

You can get it at S$57.40 on Lazada, a huge cut from its usual price of S$159. With Shopback, you can bring this down to S$55 (new Lazada customers).


4.) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Haven’t played the latest installment in The Witcher series? Well, thanks to the Steam Winter Sale, Wild Hunt has taken a hefty 50% price cut to just S$37.45 (it costs S$74.90 usually).

The game has a score of 93 on Metacritic, and has garnered “overwhelmingly positive” reviews on Steam. But that aside, a lushly detailed open-world game that includes all manner of mystical beasts and ghostly riders sure sounds like every fantasy fan's idea of fun.

Get it here on Steam!
