AirAsia X Deals

I received a few email today regarding AirAsia X launch. From what i gather, booking is now available until 30 November 2008 for flight from 11 March 2009. I'm not sure how true this date is but i guess you can check the website for further information. Now, the best part, price for a one way journey from Kuala Lumpur to London(STN) is £41 without tax and £99 with tax(according to an email i receive). I even did a simple check on the website as shown in image.

This is just a random check, which shows a total of £127 for a return ticket from London(STN) to Kuala Lumpur LCCT(KUL). Although this price is excluding tax, it is still very cheap comparing to currently available flight. I think the cheapest before is Qatar, Brunei or Emirates at around £400- £600 including tax.

Ebay Voucher Again

Picture 1.png

I got another ebay voucher of 5% with a max discount £100. This is my second voucher is three month. The reason i put this on this blog is as an encouragement for people to start using ebay. I think i got this voucher for all my selling transaction, not buying. So i would encourage people with a lot of junk in their house to start selling on ebay and get something for things they don't need. Good Luck.

Is Ebay always the cheapest?

This is what i thought when i started using Ebay. I only realized that this is not true when i was looking for a CF card on ebay. I thought i should try looking at amazon. To my amazement, i found the price different between ebay and amazon for that particular item is about £20. I ended up buying a few of this card from amazon and selling it back on ebay for a healty profit. From that day on, i survey the market first before i buy anything online. Google Shopping is a good way to survey price of an item. In the picture below i compare the price for a 320gb harddisk. The cheapest on ebay was £41.90 including postage. I decided to get the harddisk from DABs.com for only £36.49. I even get £0.84 back for buying through Quidco. I even check my local computer store and it's cheaper than ebay. For those who have already got a mindset that you always get things cheaper on ebay, i hope this is useful for you.
