    Tidal Argentina for me. Dyson Supersonic a close second (no use to me but loved my the rest of the family.

    Duolingo annual family subscription for €20 has been excellent as I have been using it.

    Google Pixel 6a with ear buds for €350 was decent too.

    Pixel 6 bought across the border in Currys for £299 over BF weekend.

    Grabbed this in TK Maxx with a damaged box for about €40 a few days ago... savage if you're a Monopoly fan!

    Got Thanos Lego Hand for about €50 over BF weekend, and assembled it over last few days. Looks great!

    Can't really remember much else bar small bits and pieces.

    Klarstein Silent Storm pedestal fans …. 130 was the list price.. 90 was the sale price. They are fûcking super quality, top intensity yet no real noise…quality. 31% off…

    Proform Carbon TL treadmill… from memory 1100 to 900 including installation… 18% saving. Very happy with it.

    PS5 for 500 if I had sold it to CEX when they were offering 650 for them. 🤣

  • Registered Users Posts: 239 ✭✭user302243

    Dyson Supersonic for 203 odd 🎉 Was planning on buying a good dryer anyway so when it came into realistic range I was delighted and it is worth the money.

    Definitely McDonald's vouchers. The whole family enjoyed the €4 meals while they lasted.

  • Registered Users Posts: 30,328 ✭✭✭✭Tauriel

    Another vote here for the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer for €209 during the Black Friday sale.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,015 ✭✭✭mr_edge_to_you

    The Redmi 11 has proven to be great.

    Also, the Vodafone competitions. Won a €100 voucher on that for Ryanair.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,597 ✭✭✭corsav6

    Philips 50" ambilight android TV for €375 from Oxendales.

    DeWalt 12v brushless drill and driver kit for €115 from CEF.

    Asus Ryzen 7 oled laptop for €649 from Currys.

    I was going to grab the Xiaomi from Vodafone as that's a great price but the spec isn't much better than my current mi10t. It was very hard to pass up even so.

  • Registered Users Posts: 472 ✭✭onform

    Disney Plus via Turkey was a top one for me.

    And the Phillips audio system from Amazon was good also.

    Had a few other small bits from HUKD. Slim pickings for bargains in double digit inflation times!

    And a little off topic, but I started a Springboard Plus course in 2022. Great bargain for anyone looking at further education options.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,211 ✭✭✭Sunrise_Sunset

    Good offers on the McDonalds app for those missing the vouchers.

    Can't think of any stand out bargains in 2022. Suppose the little ones would've all added up though.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,790 ✭✭✭bromley52

    It was a disappointing year for rope.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,868 ✭✭✭matchthis

    And dunnes planks

  • Registered Users Posts: 25 The Major

    The Dyson hairdryer for €209 , saved over 50%.

  • Registered Users Posts: 249 ✭✭Irish Kev

    Disney Plus via Turkey and PIA VPN with cashback

    Poor year for bargains. Only ones I can think of are YouTube premium and the free cinema tickets from Vodafone.

  • Registered Users Posts: 431 ✭✭Ozvaldo

    Bargain of the year was the mcdonalds hack superb saved hundreds on it and still going

    thumbs up for mcdonalds bargain

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,466 ✭✭✭skinny90

    The Philips 58inch ambi light LED for €349 for me

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,770 ✭✭✭Fann Linn

    Won a €2000 fuel card from Top Oil. Bring it on Eamon Ryan😛

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,148 ✭✭✭✭elperello

    Crafty Pale Ale in Lidl.

    Brewed in Kildare and a lovely drop.

    I discovered it a couple of years ago.

    After the disaster of Minimum Unit Pricing it never went up from 1.79 and held at that price until December when it increased to 2.21.

    For nearly 12 months I enjoyed a really nice beer at a bargain price.

    Fitbit Versa 3 from Vodafone in Jan/Feb for €111 , plus an Irish life €40 contribution off that also.

    Pixel 6 for £299 from Currys UK.

    YouTube premium is a charm through India (for kids in particular).

  • Registered Users Posts: 80,954 ✭✭✭✭Atlantic Dawn

    Disney+ via Turkey.

    The NowTV sticks and ongoing codes.

    I renewed the SSport+ sub from Turkey, yes it lost Premier League rights this season but find it great value for everything else, circa €20 for a year, SPL, Serie A, LaLiga, NBA, F1, MotoGP, NFL, UFC and PPV Boxing.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,450 ✭✭✭FastFullBack

    Netflix and YouTube Premium are ongoing great bargain's thanks to boards.

    Upgrading from Pixel 4a to 6a for about €70 thanks to €350 Vodafone price was nice.

    And the LG CS6 55' OLED at €990 I'm hoping is going to be amazing, just waiting on delivery.

    The De'Longhi 4200 bean to cup remains my greatest ever boards bargain. €230 4 years ago on Amazon and still going strong. Going for €450 right now on Amazon.
