Smile Good shopping websites

I wanted to have a thread where people could recommend websites that offered something special to NZ consumers (preferably based in Australia or NZ). Be it unusual products and/or great prices.

You should provide a link to the URL: http://www.kiwidisposals.co.nz/

Also a few words about why you nominated their service like “Reasonable shipping fees, competitively priced products and prompt service”.

I'm surprised no one has come up with any yet.

My nomination would be the book depository. I got the address from another thread on here a while back. Obviously they sell books! The books are a little bit more expensive than Amazon but they provide free worldwide delivery which makes them cheaper overall. Have used them twice and delivery both times has been within a week. The cost of books in NZ is exorbitant I usually use the library

I recommend http://www.myvet.co.nz/

Cheapest place I have found for flea treatment products and an excellent service, with free delivery if you spend over $50 and also Dr Stephan is a lovely guy.

Here's one to watch, maybe coming to a place near you soon:

Australian appliance retailer The Good Guys is opening its second store in New Zealand at Botany Downs in South Auckland on July 15.

Its first store opened in Wairau Park in Auckland in May. A third store in Manukau in Auckland will open on September 29.
http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/indu...econd-NZ-store

The website is not fully up and running yet http://www.thegoodguys.co.nz/ however a quick gander at one of the Aussie shops reveals that there may be good things to come. e.g Bosch Front Loading Washer for AUD $799

From a randomly selected Aussie shop:

The thing you have to watch with the new up and running Next site is that all the prices are in US Dollars including the postage and packing which works out about $10.50 nz money (still cheap in my opinion for decent hard wearing clothes)
