HWZ Deal Alert: 8th January 2016

It’s only the first week of 2016, yet deals and offers are in full force all over Singapore. Once again, we've sourced some money-saving deals that would probably be irresistible if you’re all about maximizing your cash. So, it’s time to #BBBMTL!


1.) Canon imageCLASS MF8580Cdw 4-in-1 color laser printer

Canon MF8580Cdw.

The Canon imageCLASS MF8580Cdw is built like a workhorse, with printing, scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities rolled into one machine for work. As a Canon product, you can print images and documents off your tablets and smartphones via the proprietary Mobile Printing App, as well as Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. The laser printer comes with both Wi-Fi and standard USB 2.0 or LAN connectivity, and it achieves a print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi, and a print speed of 20 pages per minute (A4, color, single-sided).

The offer by Canon.

The printer is now going for S$799 on Canon’s online shop - a whole S$300 off its original S$1,099 price tag. As an additional perk, you can get S$100 worth of Takashimaya vouchers when you buy the Canon imageCLASS MF8580Cdw. This extra Taka perk is valid until 31 January 2016. If you want another bonus S$50 voucher, simply bring the receipt and warranty card of your new MF8580Cdw printer, together with one old printer to the Canon Customer Care Centre in Fusionopolis Place for a trade-in. (Trade-in can be done any time before 13 February 2016.)


2.) Electrolux ZLUX1801 bagless cyclonic action vacuum cleaner

Electrolux ZLUX1801

This little Electrolux vacuum is a combination of first-world perks. The ZLUX1801 uses cyclone technology that employs centrifugal force to separate dust particles from the air that is collected in a separate container. This method, called Cyclonic Action, allows the Electrolux vaccum to go bagless. Emptying the tank requires a simple push, and the appliance is in a compact form factor, weighing a mere 4.3kg – making it suitable for smaller apartments.

Buying it via this third-party online seller on Lazada would set you back by S$102.40, effectively a 49% discount from the original S$199. It doesn’t say when the deal will expire, so move fast if you want to take up its offer.


3.) SonicGear Pandora 7 Bluetooth speaker

SonicGear Pandora 7

This souped-up Bluetooth speaker requires 20W to power its two 3-inch mid-range drivers and one 4-inch subwoofer, making it an ideal choice if you want something better than laptop or phone speakers for your room. The SonicGear Pandora 7 has a frequency range of 40 – 20,000Hz, making it sufficient for capturing most of the entire audible range in songs and audiobooks. It also comes with a built-in mic, allowing you take calls hands-free.

Right now, it’s only S$49 on Rakuten, a 62% discount from its original S$129 price tag. This deal expires pretty soon – it ends at 11.59P.M., 10 January 2016, giving us a weekend to grab it while it’s up. Make your move while it’s still available!
