Woohoo, I can get rid of the stupid Apple Ear Pods now!!!
At last, waiting for a price drop paid off. Today I was checking my emails when I saw an email from kakaku.com website. Actually there were two emails. One notifying the price drop on a GTX 780 graphics card and the second one notifying the price drop on Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 Bluetooth earphones. I was not that interested in the GTX 780 because that’s a lot of money. I spent a record amount of money this month. I cannot afford to spend another JPY50,000 or so.
But the BackBeat Go 2 had a huge price drop – percentage wise. The cheapest price of it was holding steady at JPY6,350. But the new price was “only” JPY5,187!!! That’s a 18% price drop. Plus, the shop offering this deal was Dospara. I had JPY500 worth points with them. I didn’t know what to do with those points anyways. That’s not all. Shipping is also free because the price was just over JPY5,000. The shipping is free when the amount of goods exceeds JPY5,000. Everything fitted perfectly to the equation.
Wait, there’s more. I would get 1% points, or maybe more – thanks to the points campaigns Rakuten Credit Card is offering these days.
So I jumped on this opportunity without any second thoughts. The ones I ordered were the black ones. That’s really what I wanted, as I have the space grey model of the iPhone 5S. I like the stealth look.
For the price, this was the best set of wireless earphones that I could find – even at JPY6,350. But I only had to pay JPY4,687. Is this my self gifted birthday present? We shall see. There’s more time.
It will take about 3-5 days for the package to arrive. Hey, I waited this long. I can wait a couple of more days.
