Tis the season to be cheap and merry!

Firstly, you have to read the post title in a Christmas carol singing voice. That’s very important. Secondly, this post took a fair amount of time to construct so lets be thankful to the sponsors of this post, King Price Insurance.

We all know that King Price is the cheapest insurance but what we don’t know is where to buy the cheapest geek accessories this Christmas, and that’s how this blog post was born. We all know at least one geek, and this post is for them. As a geek myself i’m tired of terrible gifts because you don’t understand what we like. So to help you South Africans be better at geek-gift-giving this Christmas, i’ve put together this handy guide!

Note – these items are from all over the South African internet. Not just our own eStore. We tried to be fair 😉

1. Star Wars Christmas stockings. Available for R695 from (sold as a pair).


2. The Joker Vinyl Clock. Available for R270 from Project Mayhem.

To be honest, gimmicky stuff is what makes us geeks happy. I’ve managed to add some cheap stuff to this list as well, so you have NO excuse. Talking about cheap, you can also get a quick quote from our royal friends of the insurance world. Go on, be a sport 😉

We know that geeks can be expensive friends but keep us in mind this festive season. With you decreasing monthly car insurance premiums, we know their should be budget for some Star Wars Christmas stocking gifts!


Did you win that HTC One (M8)? Find out here! #HTCTheOne

The wait is finally over. After we showcased how exceptional the HTC One M8 is, we were lucky enough to give one away to one of our fans. We received an overwhelming of entries since Monday, it’s clear that most of you love the fact that HTC is back in SA! Wish we had at least ten phones to giveaway!

Alas, a winner has been randomly chosen. I tweeted asking for a number at lunch time today and that tweet is our winner. This brand new HTC One M8 is getting a new home – the home of Craig Martin, known as @JustJimmyZA on Twitter. Congratulations Craig, we hope you enjoy this exceptional phone and do take advantage of its glorious features!

Those who didn’t win, do not despair, we will have more goodies for you in the near future.

In the meantime, you can check out some of the goodness we have at the store. Get some cute stuff for your loved ones, they will love you forever!

Craig, please send a mail to with your address and tel numbers. We’ll connect you with the local HTC team to sort out your prize.


Want to win the new HTC One (M8)? Of course you do! #HTCTheOne [CLOSED]

I’m an Android fan. Always have been and probably always will be. I’ve recently just switched over to the HTC One (M8) and so far so good. It’s nice to have a phone that’s big enough to use for work, and also to run with… (says the girl who went running for the first time in months this weekend).

I think one solution is just easier. And because @HTCSouthAfrica were kind enough to come into my life and offer me that one solution i think i should pass that kindness onto you. In the form of a giveaway 😉

That’s right, you chose the right day to visit because we’re giving away the brand new HTC One (M8)! 


It’s true my little Superheroes. I went to an HTC lifestyle event last week and was introduced to this exceptional new phone – myself and the other HTC ambassadors were setup onto the exceptional HTC One (M8), which is designed for people who choose the exceptional over the ordinary.

HTC wants to win over the customers that think for themselves, those exceptional people who walk into a store and form their own opinions!

If you are one of those people, and you want to WIN yourself a brand new HTC One (M8), then all you need to do is complete the two instructions below:


Winners will be chosen at random this Friday at 1pm.

Good Luck!

Just love this campaign.

Welcome back to South Africa HTC!
