Okay so this is probably just cause I bought mine a long while ago... but still... wow when you take this in percentages...

I bought mine for R370 from them.
Someone on here considers this an instrument of torture designed by Satan himself and did a PIF on here (still regretting not taking that FIP!) so 100% discount....
I see they now sell this KB for R1000 but it is currently on sale for 30% off so this KB I paid R370 for will now cost me only R700. Hmmmm...

so the question now becomes "Am I willing to spend R700 on a replacement just because my A and S keys are no longer readable?" Hmmm... So I just bought myself a MS Surface KB on Amazon instead :D

Okay, I know this is completely off topic from the EveTech stuff (just like this new discussions about "playing" with Legos Aghm ;) ) but I am bringing up this Amazon purchase in light of that "We don't need to have a Black Friday" comment from earlier. I just had a look at what the Ryzen 7 3800x will cost me if I order it via Amazon and after courier charges and import taxes it comes in at almost half WootWare's normal price and still over a R1000 cheaper than their sale price... and this is just their normal price, not even a Black Friday sale price... just.... normal...

So it seems to me that if you want awesome discounts, go to Amazon :D ...but then again, only for really expensive items. The price difference between Amazon and WootWare (on sale) for the R5 3600 is only R100 so really not worth the hassle... but for the birthplace of Black Friday to have a normal price that comes in at 50% off our normal prices... it definitely makes import a viable option any time of the year. Sales be damned! :D

I honestly don't get this rant, cause every single online only store has the exact same strategy, even Wootware.
BRUUUU I've been reading through this and am so confused.

Worst of all dude admits he wasn't gonna buy anything :unsure:

This keyboard warrior-ing needs to STAAAPPHH. Simple don't like dont buy.
Evetech had decent specials everything can't be on special where else would they make money they aint a PIF bro CHILL DEM TITS.
Yes they can't calculate but a deal is a deal, gebruik google mos.

Side Note i grabbed one of those MSI 2070 SUPERs for R8599 and am a very happy chappie compared to WootWare Palit Gamerock R9599.

I'm confused with this OP.

OP: How can they do this?
Members: This is how they are doing it, We all agree that it isn't the right way to go about it.
OP: No
Members: what?
Also this :ROFLMAO::LOL:

Personally, I don,t give a rats twinkling swaying behind about ALL of the retailers and their advertising and promotion tricks (which can fill a few thousand South African Taxis to the brim and beyond).
Think R2999.99. Think buy one, get one free, but remember, you pay twice the price for the first one, type of nonsense.

If I see the same product at whichever shop, for cheaper, I then buy it from that shop for cheaper.
