Guys,

Bought the Samsung DV150 camera @ 5K INR (will get 500 INR cashback by Dec 2014).

Still looking for Samsung 32 GB Class 6 micro SD card deal
(since that's the best card for the In-Car 0801 Dashcam I have in my car)

I am checking this thread to see how much I can save, on the things I absolutely don't "need" to buy!

Cheers,

EDIT:

Seems like a decent product. No Belts(?)
Is there any way, I can keep a gap between wipers & windshields - under these cover?


Ace.

Flipkart had good offers sometime back. Not sure about them now
Since you mentioned Mamy Poko Pants, wanted to know the general opinion about their quality ?
We have been using Pampers since Day 1, and it now 1.4 years.
In all these years, there have been only 3 instances of diaper rash.
Pampers easily hold stuff for about 3 hours max after which we change.

How is Mamy, compared to my above experience with Pampers ?

Also, Pampers max size is XL. Good to hear that Mamy has XXL. May be I can try a small pack ?

Well we too always used pampers from day one. In between we tried Mamy Poko but felt that Pampers was better among two but Mamy Poko is also good.
But when you reach XXL there are no other options than mamy. No rashes till now.
Just in case you need they have XXXL as well

They do have small packs for 8 and 12. Try once.

Quite strange. I'm seeing the same printer for Rs. 5250 (non-Amazon fulfilled) and Rs. 5875 (Amazon fulfilled). Screenshot attached - taken about 10-15 minutes ago.

When my kid was a infant, Mamy did leave rashes and we turned to Pampers. Lately, we see pampers does not last long since the weather is chill now. So couple of weeks back tried their smaller packs and felt it holds long. And the diaper is itself very thick when compared to Pampers.

We have been using Pampers Active Baby Diapers (better than Pampers Regular Diapers). I would recommend to this to others instead of Huggies or any other brands.
We moved to Pampers Pants last month. Somehow the XL Diapers were good, but XL Pants are too tight and small. So thinking of migrating to Mamy, since now I know that they have XXL and XXXL also !!!

Yes...that's the seller right at the bottom of the listings -- Super Deals 24x7 (@Rs 8,500).

I had originally selected their product because they seem to have a disproportionately large number of fulfilled orders in the last 12 months (as the screenshot shows) -- approx 8,000+ while all the others are in the range of 15 - 400+.

In that case - maybe the sellers themselves bumped up the price? They seem to be doing a lot of volume that it is not impossible that they have a dynamic pricing strategy. I don't know the level of flexibility Amazon's supply-side systems has, but it would be a poor one indeed if it didn't allow some kind of tiered pricing structure.

Dynamic pricing is very much a possibility though a 35% variation in what appears to me a rather slow moving product is mysterious. If it is dynamic pricing than it would be interesting to know whether the dynamic involved is a function of the demand or of supply side cost - either way it is hard to fathom. Even products that were fastest in flying off the shelves such as the iphone and xiaomi (when launched at least) never had such a pricing strategy.

Ordered DSLR Canon 1200D with dual lens kit , 8gb card and some sort of camera bag for 26.9 K with 2.5K cashback by December 15. Total landing cost would be 24.5K which is way cheaper than minimum price of 30K OTC at local shops in my town.
Now awaiting delivery in a week and hoping that the camera would come with Canon's 2 yrs India warranty as advertised.

Is this a good deal? Will these speakers fit in Polo?

3. Yes, they can sell it between 23-43k as you say, or at any value between 1/- to 62999/- provided the MRP is 62999/-

4. But if they sell it at 12/13/14k saying that it's MRP is 62999/-, then we are talking about a discount of nearly 50000/-, whereas the actual discount as per the MRP on the box is only a max of 14000/-

Either the lot is different (highly unlikely considering the huge difference in MRP on the website vis-a-vis the Box) OR its an eyewash. Take your pick!
I wasn't talking of Flipkart specifically. I meant all the websites are selling the Lumia 1020 for prices above the MRP you mentioned. I am attaching a few screenshots from leading websites taken few minutes back. Can you post an image of the box showing MRP of 26k?? Saying this because the prices are more than that at most retail shops as well.

Ace.
Please let me know, how's the performance of this Camera. Looking at a backup for family. Just wondering, why front LCD is not popular with other Brands.

Off course, you can tilt the LCD Screen for Selfie, but these Camera's are expensive. All are above 10K, and they're bulky.

Couple weeks back, I was looking for the Macbook Air. Visited Reliance digital/Croma and the authorized Apple re seller. Except a difference of ~200 bucks, the prices were same everywhere. However, Flipkart and Amazon had a difference averaging almost ~5k!! When I told this to the Croma salesperson, he said that online retailers are not authorized to sell Macs and iphones. They can sell just iPads and iPods. Not sure who's telling the truth here. Got it from authorized Apple store eventually.

I had purchased a Lumia 920 from Flipkart an year back. The phone used to frequently hang/overheat(had a manufacturing defect maybe). Then the display went blank all of a sudden 2 months after I bought it. Searched around and found a lot of similar complaints against WS retail on FK. Took it to an authorized Nokia care center and they replaced the complete phone for me and honored the warranty. Running super smooth ever since. Since that incident, I'm a bit skeptical about purchasing electronics online. Not sure if these retailers pass on refurbished items as new
