There are tons of offers at Kuwait car dealerships because of the Corona virus. I have seen offers from Maserati, Lincoln, Kia, Volkswagen, and Nissan. The best deals in my opinion were from Kia, Maserati, and Nissan. The best overall deal is Nissan Patrol which was offered at 14,999 KD. It comes in leather and it has front and back sensors. It comes with 5 years warranty and 4 years of service of 50,000 Kilometers. The reason I liked Nissan Patrol is because the car is one of the popular cars in Kuwait. It is a durable car and it holds value. Let me attach the details of the car I saw.
I was told that the deal is for June, but might be extended to July. I think the deal is very attractive, and it is a good time to buy a car if you need one.
There is so much demand for video game consoles during the corona crisis. The highest demand is for Nintendo Switch and then Playstation 4. I am so surprised that Nintendo switch cost about $300 which is around 92 KD before the crisis. Now the world wide stock of Nintendo Switch is so low that caused increase in prices due to demand. Before the corona crisis, Nintendo Switch was selling for 115 KD in Kuwait, and sometimes 106 KD + a game. Now the cheapest price I found was 145 KD at AlFuhod and the most expensive is 169.9 at Xcite. I asked my friends who own stores in Rehab Comples about the reason that Nintendo Switch is selling out. They said parents need to keep their kids quite at this time since they are spending time with them much more than ever. Playstation 4 was at the end of cycle so it isn’t worth the investment right now and Playstation 5 is releasing at the end of the year.

This year is the most exciting year for video game consoles. The release of PS5 and Xbox Series X is making everyone wait for the end of year to arrive ASAP. The competition between Sony and Microsoft is getting much more intense. In 2013, the comparison was mostly about console power. In 2020 things have completely changed and it became about console exclusives. Now the question is where to pre-order Xbox Series X in Kuwait. Both consoles will be sold through the same distributors in Kuwait, and again there will be 2 options to pre-order the console.
The first option is to pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. The ones that I heard from friends that will have Xbox Series X during release is the following
I always like to be prepared in case an emergency, especially with cars. There are lots of times that I was saved by my own emergency items, which I keep in the trunk of my car. From all the items that I bought in the past, two items saved me the most. Even though the chances of an emergency happening is less than 1-2%, it is still very important to have.
The first item is Fix a Flat, which fixes a flat tire by injecting foam into the tire and it will inflate it and seal it for 2 – 4 hours. The first time I used Fix a Flat was 2 years ago when I was in the farm until 3 AM. I was about to get into my car and saw the flat tire and the first thing that came to my mind was what am I going to do, because the spare tire is also flat. The farm is very far away from my home, and I didn’t want to leave my car at the farm and go back home with my brothers. I remembered that I always have Fix a Flat in the trunk of my car, so I took it and pumped the foam into the tire. The tire was inflated and sealed. I drove back home safely and fixed the flat tire the next day. You can buy Fix a Flat from Ace Hardware in Kuwait, which I highly recommend.
The second item is a car battery jump starter by NOCO sold by Garage Shuwaikh in Kuwait. The one I recommend is GB40, which is one of the smaller ones. I also recommend buying the case of GB40. NOCO GB40 has up to 20 charges, which means you can jump start 20 times. I have GB150, which is very large and I don’t think I needed something that big. I used my GB150 few days ago to jump start a family member car. Everyone who saw me jumping start the car with my GB150 decided to buy their own from Garage Shuwaikh. They all thought it was durable and much easier than connecting jump starting cables between two cars. I highly recommend buying NOCO products from Garage Shuwaikh
The release of Sony Playstation 5 (PS5) this year will be totally different than previous years, because Sony PS5 will release globally at the same time. Now the big question is where to pre-order PS5 in Kuwait. I honestly don’t want to pay above market prices, which is something I used to do a lot back in the day. Going to Rehab Complex and seeing prices where they switch the original price in $ to KWD and still buy the product will never happen again. The first week of release usually have the highest prices then it drops gradually. Now there will be 2 options to pre-order PS5.
The first option is to pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. The ones that I heard from friends that will have PS5 during release is the following
