Dive into Savings and Superior Quality at the ASUS Extravaganza!
In a world where mega sales events and enticing discounts dominate the consumer landscape, it’s easy to get caught up in the thrill of bargain hunting. Mega sales, such as ASUS eShop Anniversary, Amazon White Friday, Noon Yellow Friday, and other seasonal promotions, promise unbeatable deals and jaw-dropping discounts. However, the pursuit of bargains often leads to impulsive purchases and buyer’s remorse. In this article, we’ll explore the concept of smart shopping strategies, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing value over the mere thrill of finding a good deal.
The Psychology of Bargain Hunting
Bargain hunting is deeply ingrained in human psychology. The idea of getting more for less triggers a sense of achievement and satisfaction. Retailers capitalize on this psychology during mega-sales events, employing various tactics to create a sense of urgency and scarcity. Limited-time offers, flash sales, and door-buster deals are designed to prompt consumers to make quick decisions without thoroughly evaluating the actual value of the products.
While snagging a great deal can undoubtedly be gratifying, it’s crucial to recognize that not all discounts are created equal. The true value of a purchase lies not just in the amount of money saved but in the overall satisfaction and utility derived from the product over time.
Prioritising Value Over Discounts
Smart shoppers understand the distinction between a good deal and a valuable purchase. Instead of succumbing to the allure of massive discounts, they focus on products that align with their needs and preferences. Prioritising value involves considering factors beyond the price tag, such as product quality, durability, and long-term utility.
One effective strategy is to create a shopping list in advance, identifying the items that genuinely enhance one’s lifestyle or meet specific needs. By approaching mega sales with a clear plan, consumers can avoid impulse purchases and allocate their budget to items that bring lasting value.
Comparing Prices and Researching Products
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice. Smart shoppers leverage the power of the internet to compare prices and research products before making a purchase. Online reviews, expert opinions, and user experiences provide valuable insights into the performance and reliability of a product.
During mega sales, retailers often promote exclusive bundles or package deals. While these may seem tempting, it’s essential to assess whether the bundled items are genuinely necessary. In some cases, retailers use bundle deals to clear out excess inventory, leading consumers to buy products they wouldn’t have considered otherwise. Researching individual items and their reviews can help shoppers make informed decisions, ensuring they get the best value for their money.
Setting a Realistic Budget
One of the most fundamental aspects of smart shopping is setting a realistic budget. Mega sales events can be overwhelming, with the sheer volume of discounted products tempting consumers to overspend. By establishing a budget and sticking to it, shoppers can avoid financial strain and make more intentional purchasing decisions.
A well-defined budget should account not only for the cost of desired items but also for potential additional expenses such as taxes, shipping fees, and warranties. This comprehensive approach prevents surprises at the checkout and allows consumers to stay within their financial means while still taking advantage of valuable deals.
Embracing Technology and Price Tracking
Technology has revolutionized the way we shop, offering tools and apps that empower consumers to make informed choices. Price tracking apps, for example, allow users to monitor the historical pricing of products and determine whether the current discount is genuinely significant. By understanding the price history of an item, shoppers can avoid falling for false discounts and make purchases when the prices are genuinely reduced.
Additionally, many retailers offer price-matching policies, allowing consumers to get the best price available. Smart shoppers take advantage of these policies by presenting evidence of lower prices from competitors, ensuring they pay the lowest possible amount for their desired products.
Understanding Return Policies
No matter how diligent a shopper is, there’s always the possibility of a purchase not meeting expectations. Understanding the return policies of retailers is a crucial aspect of smart shopping. Some mega-sales events have more restrictive return policies, making it essential to read the fine print before completing a purchase.
Smart shoppers prioritise retailers with transparent and customer-friendly return policies. This ensures that if a product doesn’t live up to expectations or if there are issues with the purchase, they have the flexibility to return or exchange the item without unnecessary hassle.
In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the environmental impact of consumerism. Smart shoppers are increasingly prioritising sustainability in their purchasing decisions. Mega sales provide an opportunity to invest in high-quality, eco-friendly products at discounted prices.
By choosing products that are built to last and have a minimal environmental impact, shoppers contribute to a more sustainable and responsible consumer culture. Some retailers also use mega sales events to promote sustainable practices, offering discounts on eco-friendly products or providing incentives for recycling old items.
Here then, are the top offers available through the ASUS Extravaganza…

It comes with a small knob and button controller that makes it quite practical to use. It essentially creates a shortcut menu for some basic functions, saving the hassle of loading up the Armory Crate software. The ASUS ROG Azoth Wireless Gaming Keyboard is thus the ultimate gaming keyboard around.
Corsair K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Corsair’s K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an excellent gaming keyboard that comes in a tenkeyless form factor. For those uninitiated, Tenkeyless is a term used to describe keyboards that do not have a 10-key numeric keypad on the right side. The tenkeyless design is absolutely amazing for gaming, doing away with the Numpad. This, in turn, gives your mouse a lot more room to manoeuvre, since you usually get little use out of a Numpad in most gaming situations. The reduction in size also means a reduction in weight, making it easier to lug your mechanical keyboard around.
The keyboard also comes with a “Tournament Switch”, just next to the USB Type-C, which when flicked, makes the keyboard competition-ready. What this means is that it changes the backlighting on the K70 RGB TKL to a single static colour for less distraction and disables custom actions and macros. The keyboard is very well-built and the design is top-notch. You get a sort of a brushed metal look up top, while the keys themselves are quite nice. Underneath the keyboard, you get the anti-slip pads and the flip-out keyboard legs. In terms of polling rates, at default, the keyboard is at 1000Hz. However, if speed is what you need, you can change it to 8000Hz using the iCUE software.
Ducky One 3 Mini Classic RGB Keyboard
Fancy switches and LCD screens are no longer enough to stand out in the keyboard market. To excel, manufacturers must offer sought-after features such as high-quality stabilisers, durable (preferably PBT) keycaps, and even hot-swap PCBs, which are becoming increasingly demanded by users. The Ducky One 3 Mini Classic RGB Keyboard also introduces QUACK Mechanics, a series of improvements that earned its name in a lighthearted manner.
As a 60% keyboard, its compact size contributes to its enhanced rigidity, making it feel like a keyboard designed for durability and resilience. The design team at Ducky truly crafted a keyboard ready for any challenge. Since this is a 60% form factor keyboard, it only retains the essential keys and sheds all the extras. It leaves out the function row, number pad, arrow keys, navigation buttons, and media keys.
Razer Huntsman Mini Analog
Razer’s new Huntsman Mini Analog is a new version of its compact 60% gaming keyboard. The standout feature on the Huntsman Mini Analog is optical switches with variable actuation, which let gamers assign two functions to a single keystroke depending on how hard the key is pressed.
The keyboard is designed for “LAN players, fans of minimalist gaming set-ups, or those looking to save space, whilst giving users the fine control and precision demanded by today’s games.” Note that to use dual-step actuation on the keyboard, you’ll have to run the Razer Synapse software. Dual-step lets you press a key lightly and hold it until you’re ready, then press all the way down to initiate a follow-up action. It can be used, for example, to combine actions like equipping an item and then using it.
SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL
SteelSeries’ esports-ready TKL design allows for a cleaner desktop space whilst also giving more room for large sweeping mouse movement, ensuring game-winning moments go unimpeded. For the first time, the Apex Pro TKL will be untethered and available with next-gen high-performance Quantum 2.0 Dual Wireless technology.
With the Apex Pro TKL, users can take advantage of OmniPoint 2.0 technology to switch between agile 0.2mm actuation and deep and purposeful 3.8mm key presses. The TKL design gives users more desk space, for clutch plays while still being transportable to LAN events. A built-in OLED smart display allows gamers to see the game system and chat information as it happens, making the need to minimize games a thing of the past. Double shot PBT keycaps ensure the keycaps last just as long as the 100m keystroke-rated switches.
Logitech’s new G715 Gaming Keyboard from the Aurora Collection delivers low-key vibes with high-key performance so you can express yourself and play your way. You can float away with its dreamy white design and comfy, cloud-shaped keyboard palm rest. With a tenkeyless layout and adjustable height, this is an ideal compact mechanical keyboard for gaming that gives you that good game feeling, all day long.
The G715 release arrives with a slick white design that comes backed by per-key RGB backlighting and GX Red tactile switches. The wireless form factor works over both Bluetooth and the 2.4GHz wireless receiver and also features other fun inclusions like a dedicated volume scroll bar, media controls, and a customisable top plate.
