Thrifty Thursday is back and this week we have a bumper edition that will leave you with plenty of spare change to buy everything else on the Thrifty Thursday list (you just have to have it all).

Swiftkey Sale

SwiftKey Keyboard for phones and tablets (Approx R24 – 50% off)

Half off isn’t bad for an app especially when it’s the no. 1 paid app on the Android market. SwiftKey is a brilliant keyboard replacement that predicts your next word based on your style of writing which it learns from your Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. SwiftKey has probably saved me in excess of 200 000 keystrokes since I first started using it and it just got an update with cloud support to take your keyboard customisations with you to a new device.

Canon Powershot S100 Camera (R2 220 – 40% off)

A great pocket camera with a fantastic sensor and brilliant low light performance. When we originally chose to feature the S100 we found a deal for R2 700 which was already R1 000 off of the standard retail price, then we discovered this deal and pulled out our credit cards.

AVG and Seagate

Seagate 1TB Expansion Hard Drive + AVG Internet Security 2013 (R799 – 40% off)

More storage is never a bad thing, especially when you can get super speedy USB 3.0 storage but back that up with virus protection to ensure that you don’t infect your computer with anything nasty. The free AVG antivirus adds another R300 in value to this deal and if you don;t have any Anti virus program then this is a great deal.

60-inch LG


LG 60PN6500 60-inch Plasma TV (R9 999 – 13% off)

Nothing completes a man cave (or a lady cavern) the way a big TV does and 60 inches is big. With a 2 year guarantee and the proficiency for gaming, sports and movies that plasma technology allows for this deal should be top of your list if you’re in the market for a new panel.
