Catch Of The Day Android App
Australian bargain site Catch of the Day is having another “Technothon” sale. The sale began today and ends tomorrow morning (Saturday 19th April) at 11am AEST which includes a number of Android devices.


Catch of the Day is offering two phones for sale as well as a tablet, first up is Sony’s 2013 flagship, the Xperia Z, which is available in purple and white for $419.95 + shipping – a decent discount given the age of the device (it’s a little over a year old and it’s due for an update to KitKat).

Next up, is the Xperia Z Ultra. This phone was Sony’s entry into the larger screened ‘phablet’ market. Offering similar specs to Sony’s Xperia Z1 with a less featured-packed camera, fronted by a huge 6.4 inch screen, it’s going for $569.95 + shipping and is available in black or white.

That Sony pricing is nothing new. Other retailers have had them for even cheaper for the last month or so.


Clear-outs of last year’s models at fool refail price.
Definitely not a good catch.


Does anything make you happy ? Lol


I echo Jeni’s thoughts on this one…these aren’t “bargains” that COTD is offering.

Much of COTD’s business seems to be based on this method of making mediocre-at-best deals sound like awesome ones and trying to get the users’ impulse get the better of them with the “ends soon!!!” tags all over the site.

It’s not that hard to find products lower than RRP in Australia…and as I mentioned, none of these devices are THAT much more expensive to buy within AU, from B&M stores.


You can get Aussie stock Xperia Zs for $429 from MSY. The Z Ultra is harder but Sony Centre stores cleared them off for $399 a couple of weeks back.

Same for others…the prices aren’t anything to make you reach for your wallet straight up.
