Guys the SBSABF25 code is active again for cyber monday on Amazon

Remember this isnt a takealot type deal where the code will work even without a std bank card :D only std banks cards will allow the code to be active

I've got £85 in credit on the Amazon (UK) store. Got some for the Amazon (US) store too. Anyone want to buy it at a discount? Can send an eGift voucher. Drop me a message.

SAMSUNG: EVO Select 128GB / 256GB MicroSDXC UHS-I U3 100MB/s Full HD & 4K UHD Memory Card with Adapter

The 128GB has landed cost of R460 on its own, the 256GB only R634 from amazon


Maybe also a good filler to reach $80 in order to use the za15 code for 15% discount.
Other cyber monday sd cards deals on Amazon:

Edit:
Some bigger cards:

Seems like amazon is also inflating costs before hand before selling them at a "BF discount." I've seen similar landed costs in random previous months for some of the micro sd cards shown
Yes seems so. At least one can still use the za15 voucher for 15% off on orders of $80 or more

With the voucher applied it is only R5k:

Be careful with this, I don’t believe import fees are included as it’s from a third party seller.

Will have to see, I am ok with that, but as far as I am aware it's is covered under Amazon Global Shopper and the courier service used is expedited with UPS Worldwide Saver which includes customs clearance.
Mine cleared customs today. Only had to pay R251 VAT calculated on an invoice of $99 as well as R120 UPS clearance fee, so total cost was R5371 compared to R6100 if I got it local, so still a saving of a few hundred.

I see ours are sold out, but there is still Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC 64GB in Cobalt Blue available from R4 674,26 or about 5027.034 with tax. If 64gb is enough with same hardware it's still a bargain.

What device is it? Most electronic power supplies can support a wide input voltage.

If not, you can get compact transformers but you need to make sure it's capable of handling the wattage the device is trying to draw.

Not that wide. But what DC voltage is it converting to? May be able to get away with a laptop charger or something.

What I meant was wide enough to accommodate both 110V and 220V.

For example, most cellphone chargers:
