If I remember rightly the latest booklet of 77 bons from coop had an offer for sonicare toothbrushes in it.
It did. 20% off. However, you can't beat the Amazon.de price of €39 for the basic model (the higher up models just have more cleaning modes and travel cases etc, ; they're not faster or with a better battery). Plus Amazon'll take off the 19% German VAT. They'll add on around 8% to cover Swiss VAT but as it's under the Swiss tax limit even that amount will be refunded within a few weeks. If you want two, consider two separate orders to ensure staying under that limit.

I didn't actually pay much attention to it as we don't actually want one but I thought I'd seen it somewhere.

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

My trusted Razer gaming headset decided to disintegrate after years of service. I had some minutes to spend in ZH city today and with little hope of finding any decent kit decided to check the few electronic shops around Bahnhofstraße- the Interdiscount XXL close to Hiltl sold the Sennheiser game one for 99 instead of 199 CHF. That's half the price of digitec and 85 chf cheaper than the cheapest offer on toppreise. Still had 2 pieces left...

Do be careful with such watches, they might not actually keep the time

I once bought a Casio that was advertised as genuine for $7 on eBay. It sells for 10-15 Euros in Europe, so that price from China didn't seem too suspicious.

I got it and it looked genuine indeed... but then lost 30 to 60 seconds each *day*. If you're in Switzerland where public transportation is punctual, that's not good

I expressed my concerns to the seller and asked if it was really genuine, and he refunded immediately (I hadn't even asked for that!). Bought another from Amazon and it's flawless, even after months.

Because it is essentially junk.

From the ad:

Brand Name:EIMA

Maybe I should have been clearer. EIMA make the junk that is sold in CH for 80 bucks. Same factories, different brand names, different outlets

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

My 5 CHF chronograph is still going strong after nearly new years. It keeps time too.

When the battery died, I didn't have the right size so I jammed in one I found with a bit of foil. Works perfectly.

...and my Chf 4.99 chronograph, tourbillon, minute repeater with lunar functions and water proof to 5000m still keeps fantastic time even when i chopped a AAA battery in half, piddled over it and stuffed it in the compartment all held up with gaffer tape.

I've had it numerous years.

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

I feel the same way about GPS units.

I still love navigating with maps, compasses or the sun.

And I've got a beautiful handmade compass too!

next question: Is it okay to use a compass while driving or does it apply to the handy-law. Best tried out in canton Aargau.
