If you like Chicoree shops and happen to be in the Bern train station this week, they have a heck of a sale going on. I found out by accident because I was killing time before my train.

Virtually everything from shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, sweaters, jackets, jeans, etc. is marked down an additional 50%. Yesterday I bought a comfy 100% cotton t-shirt and a pair of leggings for just 3 Francs. Total. I couldn't believe my ears or my eyes at the cash register. I'd just paid more than that for the coffee in my hand. I had no time to shop more but I will definitely be going back this week!

I asked the clerk how long the sale would last and she said she wasn't sure but probably until the end of the week. Happy shopping!
Chicoree in Glarus has a sale on as well... I don't know if it's of the same magnitude. I'll have a look-see next time I'm out with the babies (probably tomorrow afternoon.)

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

For those who have been looking for a large 17" laptop for a mix of productivity and also gaming, Media Markt have a great deal on a MEDION ERAZER X7833 which has a very powerful modern graphics card in it (basically the second fastest currently in existence for laptops), the Nvidia 970M 3GB. I had a look at it earlier today and while the chassis looks "functional", the screen was large and bright and the keyboard was pretty decent.

Price: 1199chf... https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/comput...3/idp3octxekqp



It is understandably pretty heavy so can be considered a moveable desktop replacement that will stay mainly in your house on your desk (though of course it is still portable), but for the money you simply cannot find anything close to this in its class, and it WILL play games very decently.

Review online are very positive. Great value.

What was the deal? Would be helpful to quote the price so we know whether we're looking at it. Though there's a trend with these retailers selling off last year's MBP model (interdiscount had a 500.- off promo on the old 15" retina yesterday).

Probably only a problem on the way there, on the way back I'm guessing you wouldn't really care.

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

Coop City Sihlcity has Roomba 621s (vacuum cleaning robot) for 249 Fr. - I struggled to find any even online for less than 350ish. And pure cashmere scarves reduced from a ridiculous 100Fr to 20 to 25 Fr (I have ones in red, white and blue ready for the winter )

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

Interdiscount have a ridonculous deal on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S1... reduced from 449 to 299! http://www.interdiscount.ch/idshop/p...BE8CB44DCB.p02

Review here http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-...1253129/review

The newer model has just come out, but it's not widescreen (it is 4:3 so videos will have black bars) and it is almost double the price of this one.

This is really a bargain if you are looking for a quality tablet with an AMAZING screen... I bought one and it is simply beautiful.

Yes, with caveat. It can't replace a normal vacuum (can't do stairs or upholstery), has limited capacity and does take time to cover every spot, but leave it on for long enough and it does eventually clean everywhere to an acceptable standard. So, still saves me a lot of time on the cleaning job I hate the most

I have a hard wood floor, so cannot comment on performance on carpet.

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

Rhyner in Egg ZH, is not a too badly priced for quality tools although their discounts quoted are from crazy retail prices. A couple of cracking deals on industrial quality battery tools next weekend.
http://shop.rhyner.ch/pdf_v8/index.html
The 10.8v Bosch drill is a must have with these batteries, my last one put in 30,000 screws in terrace decks before dying, the batteries are still good.
