Easter Eggs Vs. Easter Presents


In a world where we’re bombarded with media coverage about diets and healthy living, we wondered if a lot of people have started to move away from buying Easter eggs, and instead choosing to buy Easter presents for family and friends?


Traditionally, families and friends have come together during this religious holiday to exchange Easter eggs and Easter hampers with such family-oriented fun activities as a traditional Easter egg hunt for the children etc. With an increased desire to keep ourselves and our children healthy,  many people are now opting for Easter presents instead of chocolate Easter eggs and hot-cross buns with lashings of butter etc.


A new outfit, new shoes, a game, a toy, a family DVD, something for the garden or even money - what gifts do you give at Easter?


To help you choose your Easter presents PriceMe has put together a selection of interesting Easter present ideas:

Vend, is this the next big thing in retail?


Vend, is this the next big thing in retail?


If you haven’t already heard of Vend, you will hear a lot about them this year. This cloud-based point of sale retail software company was launched in Auckland, New Zealand in 2010 and is set to be the next XERO type success story. With a recent investment round raising a huge $25 million of new capital Vend is now set to open offices in London later this year, with future expansion plans across Europe.


Vend’s retail software allows retailers to keep track of inventory, manage their customers and process sales using cloud-based technology. This software works online and offline and is available on all devices. Cloud-based retail software like this is another step to help retailers, big and small, to advance in a world of fast-moving technology.


More than 10,000 stores in over 100 countries have already adopted the Vend technology and with key industry partners and re-sellers including PayPal (secure in-store payments), Xero (online accounting) Stitchlabs (multi-channel inventory management), Swarm (in-store customer analytics) and SelfPay (customer self-checkout) you can see why!

Compare Internet plans to get the best deal for you

PriceMe’s new Broadband plans section is great for consumers that want to cut their monthly broadband bills. On the new broadband section of PriceMe you’re able to find a plan that fits your needs by comparing the monthly and first year costs of each plan from different providers in New Zealand. You can see the top 5 broadband plans and compare the different types for broadband connection from ADSL to Fibre / UFB connections. 

The launch of the PriceMe broadband comparison comes at a key time with a group of broadband companies in New Zealand having just agreed to standardize their residential broadband plans. The group responsible for developing this standardized offer includes Telecom, Vodafone, Slingshot and Orcon.

The standardisation of residential internet and broadband plans will allow customers to compare the plans between the different providers based on a number of different criteria including; termination fees, contract periods, monthly costs, first year costs and availability. This will start with fixed line residential broadband plans and in the future the hope is that it will move into all forms of broadband including mobile.

PriceMe are working on adding more providers to the broadband comparison section of the website and will continue to enhance this to further improve the comparison features available.

Latest Canon Digital Cameras

Canon has consistently been one of the most popular brands on PriceMe over the years, and is beloved by Kiwis. 2012 has been a busy year for Canon so far and the launch of new digital camera models seems to accelerate. Here’s a summary of recent and planned product launches:

Powershot models

Canon has or will introduce six new Powershot cameras this year. The Canon Powershot G16 and the Canon Powershot S120 were launched by Canon in NZ last month.  These two high-end Powershot cameras are both based on the DiG!C 6 Image Processor. The Canon PowerShot SX170 IS and the palm-sized PowerShot SX510 HS both extend the Powershot series.

The entry level Canon Powershot A2500 was launched at the beginning at the year, and now retails for as low as $70 and the A3500 IS at about $200. The Powershot S200 is scheduled for release in mid-September, and hopefully we’ll be able to list this product shortly.

IXUS models

The IXUS series remains popular and Canon boosted it with the new Canon IXUS 255 HS and the Canon IXUS 135 IS.

EOS models

The Canon EOS 70D has just launched in New Zealand, and boosts the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and wireless sharing of your photographic activities. More info regarding the EOS 70D is available on Canon’s NZ site. The advanced Canon EOS 700D model was introduced in April, but still lags behind some other models in popularity despite 5 frames-per-second shooting and some other sophisticated features.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Released

The latest Samsung phablet, the Galaxy Note 3, has just been released.

Early reviews suggests that it lives up to expectations: it’s slimmer (just 8.3mm), larger and more capable than its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The third generation Note’s screen is equipped with an a 5.7-inch HD screen, and the design looks really impressive. New features include a 13 Mega pixel camera and an upgraded pen.  

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be most likely be offered first by parallel importers and drop shippers in New Zealand. The official release date in NZ is still uncertain apparently, but the US release will be in October this year. In the meantime, you can check out other Samsung tablets. The question for many Kiwi Notes’ owners is whether the new Notes 4 is worth the upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy Note and Note II.

The competitors to the latest Galaxy Note are the usual suspects: LG G2,  HTC Butterfly S and some of the latest Sony Xperia phablets. Of course, there’s also the iPhone 5S to consider for all Apple aficionados out there.  Which device do plan to buy?

iPhone 5S available for pre-order

The long-awaited iPhone 5S can now be pre-ordered on PriceMe. Currently only Top End Electronics takes pre-orders.

The question for many consumers right now is whether to wait for the iPhone 5S phone or to go with the existing iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S is rumoured to launch at the end of September.

Another question is what happens to other Apple iPhone models, and how the new 5S fits into the picture. It’s believed that the iPhone 5S will essentially replace the iPhone 4S, which will then become a budget phone. There has also been talk online that the upcoming iPhone 5C will also be a budget model, but this seems far-fetched at the moment.

The iPhone 5S is supposed to support the 4G LTE frequency at 1800MHz, which is currently only  provided by Vodafone in New Zealand. Other telcos do have plans to upgrade. There have also been rumours that iPhone 5S will support Advanced LTE (LTE-A), which increases speeds by a factor or 4-5.

So what’s the iPhone 5S got to offer? Analysts like Jeff Parson at T3 are expecting  fingerprint scanner, full HD, improved and new colours and NFC.
