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

Hertz have some amazing deals for long term rentals. Playing with some dates in the new year, I found a Fiesta for CHF 81.50 a week (Feb thru to July) at Zurich Airport.

So a fully insured, new car with unlimited miles and no contract hassle for less than most leasing deals. The rate seems to kick off from Feb 2021 using rate code NPP. or the following Kayak referral link

Edit (Nov 2020): The offer has long since expired

Coop seems to have a lot of wine boxes at 30% off if alcohol is your thing.

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

Not sure if this should be on the deal thread or the Corona thread.

Aldi has the 50 pack box of masks on special until Saturday for CHF 7.95

https://www.aldi-suisse.ch/ The ad should be on the page when you arrive on the link.

I could not follow the link as it is broken

If anyone has info on car rentals for a week or that would be amazing

Not on special but Otto's in Baar have packets of Rowntree's Fruit Gums & Randoms on sale at CHF1.50 ea. for the 150g sharing pouch. Never seen them in the shop before but might also not have been very observant!

Sweet !! Have been looking for unlimited Swiss & Europe Internet.
It says upto 200 Mbits in CH . Is this pretty good? I constantly use navigation and music together.

and they do not mention speeds in Europe, where I also use navigation and music.

No gaming
No movies.
Thanks for your replies, if any.

It actually says 200Mbits.

I'm pretty sure 0.2 bits (200mbits) doesn't actually work in computing.

Actually it does, there's no practical limit to how slow you can transfer information.

The deep space communications used by long range probes are designed to adjust their rate, and to work at arbitrarily low rates if necessary, particularly after error correction is taken into account.

No, that would be a data rate of 200mbits/S and not 200mbits which is what I actually wrote.

You can't have less than 1 bit of data*. but you can certainly have a data transfer rate of less than 1 bit per second.

*I clearly made the distinction - in the terms of computing.
