It’s that time of year where the specials come hard and fast and don’t let up until Christmas. Here are three offers we’ve spotted that thrifty shoppers will surely appreciate, but hurry, come Monday they’ll all be over.

Incredible Connect is running a pretty decent promotion on this 40-inch TV until this coming Sunday. Not only is this a good size, but it’s Full HD, uses LED backlighting and it does 3D, all for just five and a half thousand bucks. Quick, snap yours up before the rand/dollar exchange rate makes future deals like this near-impossible.

The latest Assassin’s Creed game has you playing more like a pirate with assassin-y skills than a straight-up assassin, and it’s awesome. The game is finally available for PC, and you can grab it from Green Man Gaming for a nice 25% discount until Sunday, which saves you around 150 bucks over the full retail price. The code you’ll get is redeemable on Steam.

Seagate 2TB

Everybody needs more storage for all their 14GB HD movies, 1.5GB+ TV series episodes and increasingly-large game installs. Makro is running a special on Seagate’s excellent Backup Plus external drive that will put another two terabytes within your reach for the pretty low sum of just R569.50 per terabyte.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
