    Has anyone heard of beans taking a big price increase? Was at my local roaster and he said green beans are up 50%, something about frost hitting Brazil. I remember reading something online a while ago

    1- They give you 30-odd units, so you have a while before you need to purchase 2 - I use Discovery Bank to get the 20% discount using Miles, but you can purchase from anywhere I believe Thanks for the conversion info.

    Did anyone else have a problem with Checkers spend? My purchases at my normal checkers are included, but spend at a new checkers (Freshx store, which doesn't show 'Checkers' on my statement) aren't included at all - despite clearing before month end.

    Rather take the money and buy the best grinder you can first - 5k should get you a decent grinder. Then you can save up again for the machine - the BBE is a good starting point, but not without a really good grinder.

    Best Coffee Subscriptions in SA?

    Exactly the same happened to me. And only 1 of the six bags was near drinkable... I emailed to complain and their response was basically "we put all the coffee in the deep-freeze, so it it's still fresh, here's the link to an article" What a waste of money

    New Car - Finance vs Cash: best price

    This is what I was thinking... seems like a better way to get a discount is through financing and then settling.

    New Car - Finance vs Cash: best price

    My father-in-law is buying a new car - was paid out by insurance for a write-off and has the cash to buy new, around R500k. I see all the specials/promos are built around interest rate/deposit/balloon etc - but nothing on a pure discount on the RSP for vehicles. So what is the best way to get...
