Save big on gadgets and tech

It’s Friday, the start of a long weekend, and many employees received their pay cheques this morning – perfect conditions to spend lots of money on things you will regret.

With three consecutive evenings open for debauchery and no need to worry about work the next day, your recently acquired wealth is not safe as you set out over the next three days.

“Just one last drink” is the harbinger of poverty’s favourite line, while “Don’t worry, I will buy a round for your entire bachelorette party” only guarantees a long, lonely shower as you contemplate what you are doing with your life.

From this you move on to buying ice cream, ordering Scooter’s 3-for-2 pizza special, and crying while watching The Notebook and looking at pictures of your ex-girlfriend on Facebook.

Instead of trusting yourself to save your hard-earned cash, and stay sane, rather spend it immediately on large TVs, iPads, and huge sound systems. All of which come without the aforementioned regret, sadness, and lonely showers.

Here are this week’s best tech deals to get you started.
