We’re going to keep this one short and sweet because there really is no need to muck around here. You obviously saw this morning’s deals but we have another trick up our sleeve.
As far as iPad deals go we’re not yanking your chain here – you will not find a better deal going around unless you’re nicking it off the back of a truck. What we have here is an iPad Mini Retina Display 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G, which is down from R7 199 to R5 599 (FREE delivery).
But hang on a second, remember that for today and tomorrow Groupon are knocking a further 20% off all goods sold. If your maths isn’t all that sharp we’re going to help you out and give you that final figure: your iPad Mini Retina Display 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G will cost you just the R4 780. Go on, snoop around and see if you can find it cheaper.
Spoiler alert – you won’t. Take your pick between silver or space grey and check out the specs below…
