Are you a budding robotics and automation wannabe? Fancy wiring up the whole house so the curtains open and close at the push of a button? Or just want to build a automated vacum cleaner to whiz around the house while you relax in the sun? The possibilities are endless with physical computing, you just need some creative flair (and the technical know how!) to make all your automation dreams come true – and some gadgets from MindKits to bring your creation to life! And to help you along, they have now started doing a daily deal as well, so you can get building for cheaper! Get yourself a gripper, some tracks to move it along, chuck in a GPS unit and, well, Ill let you work it out from there!
Thats right, there is another shopping web site offering one day deals as well, TechMarket.co.nz.
From their blog – Each day from 12.00 p.m. a new deal is revealed. The deals are discounted products similar to other stores but we have decided to add our own little flavour. Sometimes we will even give away something as well as part of the daily deal. Things can’t get better than this!
They have a nice looking compact laptop today for sale, I am in the market for a new laptop, might have to have a closer look!
OneDollar.co.nz is another new comer to the one day sale market, and we have added them to the list of one day sale sites. What is OneDollar? From their about us page: Onedollar.co.nz offers “one item at $1.00, plus 3 other items all heavily discounted every day!”
Sounds like a great bargain to be had, if you can get in quick enough to pick up the one dollar item!
There is an article in the Herald on Sunday (24th October 2010) about 1-day selling fake Ab Circle Pro exercise equipment – read more about it here.
According to the article, the sole NZ importer of Ab Circle Pro “has taken action against a Hamilton-based web company for allegedly selling cheaper Chinese imitations of the device”. There is no comment in the article from either 1-day or Brand Developers (the Ab Circle Pro importers), but 1-Day have commented about it on their Facebook page in two posts (here and here), saying that they recalled the exercise device as soon as they found out they were not genuine.
Will be interesting to see how this one plays out, there is a high court hearing scheduled in Hamilton next month on the subject.
Brand Developments also took action against Trade Me in 2008 regarding the sale of fake Ab King Pro equipment; in that case a “confidential settlement” was reached.

UPDATED 25th October – We have removed FragrangeGuy from the list of sites as they have had the same ‘daily’ deals up for the last month now. Should they start changing their one day sale stuff every day, then we will add them back onto the list, thanks.
They used to be FragranceX, now they are back as FragranceGuy, with great daily deals on perfume for both guys and girls.
Go and check out their great range of fragrances now, and you just might catch yourself a bargain!
There are a whole bunch of one day sale sites coming soon, some group buying type sites, and some general product sites. Although they are not live yet, it pays to check them out as many are giving away freebies to early bird subscribers, and if you do subscribe, you’ll know exactly when they go live!
Check out the full list under the ‘Coming Soon‘ category now
Last week Off the back revamped their website – they have removed their community section, the rest of their online store, and have streamlined the site. They are now focusing soley on one day sales. Read all about the changes in their news section.
What do you think of their new direction? We think it’s a good thing, as they are now focused soley on providing one day sale products, which can only be good for everyone!
We have just added GrabOne Hawkes Bay and GrabOne Rotorua/Taupo to the ever growing list of daily group buying sites. They have five more regions planned in the coming months as well, soon they will have all of NZ covered for your group buying needs!
We have tweaks the home page a little more tonight, all the various categories have been moved to the top menu bar, on the right side. We have also removed the two buttons above the deals, as the abundance of links all over the page was confusing some people. Hopefully this clears up a bit for everyone, and makes the browsing experience simpler and nicer.
Always wanting to hear your feedback about the site, feel free to leave it below, and keep enjoying those one day sale bargains!
