Best Deal of 2022 Black Friday?

Ian_Dot_TechIan_Dot_Tech Member, Patron Provider

Black Friday - Cyber Monday isn't over yet but a majority of the sales have been posted.
I was wondering what has been the highlight purchase this year.
Doesn't have to be hosting-related, can be anything!

What did you value the most and are excited to have gotten?

    Didn't managed to get it but your $13.37/yr 500GB HDD VPS deal looks pretty good enough :smiley:

    I was eyeing on some hardwares but at last bought nothing this BF... CM just started so not sure whether will see something nice

  • Storage server from LiteServer and VPS from GreenCloud at $15/yr. Great value.

    Following this thread to find what I might have missed.

    Deals posted in @FAT32 thread are really great, but extremely hard to grab.
    I failed to grab any deal from this thread.

    Personally, I have gotten old. I used to go for many electronics etc...
    My goal for this black Friday was new warm clothes from Cabelas. Got some new flannel button-down shirts for the winter. Gottem at a great price too!

    I wanted to get good headphones for all team members in the office, but I couldn't find good deals in EU. I was shopping for a base model M2 macbook air - but nothing appeared as well. And I wanted a new 5k monitor/monitors - still nothing. So all in all - clothes.

    This was without a doubt my favourite offer here: https://lowendtalk.com/discussion/182739/inception-hosting-black-friday-offer-thread-more-than-50-off-extra-disk-and-bandwidth/p1

    Closely followed by the Advin $6 chess special.

    Also grabbed a non-BF Hetzner dedi in the auctions, which I've been contemplating for a while.

    Didn't buy anything in the real world, but I did go for a lovely 15km walk in the countryside today to get away from the screen.

    I found many of the BF deals at retailers and mainly online shops were fake. Just look at Amazon, many BF/lightning deals said 25-50% off, but it was either retail price is only 10-20% off realistically.

    Economies are shit, many people don't have money to blow, small businesses can't hand out things this year.

    Anyway so far I've purchased 1 or two steam games, some tetris, man am I that old?
    Once you got dedicated servers and colo equipment there is nothing to get here. Sadly... 0 fomo.

    I used to be happy person.

    Oh true I forgot, Age of Empires 4 was on sale on steam. Decided it was time to buy it!

  • For me the best deal was hiding behind a chess captcha - you have to love that although I couldn't grab it.

  • Asus ROG Zephyrus Laptop, i9-12900H, 3080Ti, 48G ddr5, 2x2T NVMe for $1.26K, Pretty sure it would be a nice deal. My old MSI GS65 i7-8700H Laptop can finally get retired.

    Any site or local? Protein powder got crazy expensive in the last 2-3 years. Myprotein bumped their prices like x3-x5, crazy.

    That does sound like a sweet deal, maybe @Ian_Dot_Tech could find something in his Santa bag? After all, @FAT32 has been running all these amazing community projects for this forum.
