From 2019. 🥵
For the moment I thought we were onto a stupendous bargain! 😂😂
Looks like a Metcash (IGA) display Norton?

@johnglavine

No idea, got it off a collection of funny signs. I have seen some doozies from OzBargain however!

@nchia
The shoppers’ nirvana (or was it Mecca?) of Australia!
Just a pity the contributors occasionally stray into politics and …. the level of their discourse is way below FA level. 😄

@johnglavine

I used to check it daily, sometimes multiple times. Haven’t done that in a couple of years.

@nchia
Same.
I ended up clogging my home with deeply discounted merchandise which I hardly use ….. 😂🙊😅

@nchia
An absolute champion actually at the moment of acquisition!
But slowly with the passage of time the champagne lost its fizz. 🤣

@johnglavine

I did score a few genuine bargains, and some are still used daily, years later. The only other way to save even more, was to not buy at all!

@nchia
These week’s grocery specials are posted.
Let’s see I can find a deeply discounted staple - Rice 🍚…. 😄

@johnglavine

Ours come out Tuesday late afternoons for Wednesday start.

Grocers like Harris Farms have larger 10kg bags as do Asian grocers that are not too bad. I tend to buy the 5kg basmati rice from Coles when it’s half off, like $9.50 or $10.

@johnglavine

Wife switched us over to basmati years ago. Short and fat grain is now viewed as a delicacy, like when we go Chinese or sushi! 😂

I saw the Hinata one, seems similar price wise.

We buy a bag of these when it’s half off.

@nchia
Basmati is very good.
Lower Glycemic Index.
We buy that too.
Probably should make a complete switch.
The Indian grocery stores tend to sell the best quality basmati but we have to pay more for what we get.

@nchia
Nice. 😄👍
Resisting “rice pot” habits. 🙊🙊

Separately, I just paid for a (Nord) VPN service. It’s about $80 USD for 2 years, but with CashRewards you get 96% back, so around $10 AUD for two years.

If you’re interested, read the deal, first comment, then skim through the three pages of other comments if you wanted to be sure what to do. I just used the app as per the deal, but maybe could’ve used Norfolk Island instead of USA to avoid GST.
