      $5 for a case? Are they dreaming? I can buy an entire e-reader for that price!
      :)

      •  

        LMAO

      •  

        I'd hazard a guess and say this is the reason for the price error on the readers.

    •  

      just did, thanks!

      you ordered ten??? no wonder the deal expired.

      •  

        Someone ordered 50!

        •  

          the person who ordered fifty probably tipped the staff that something was up (unless there's like some automatic detection for suspicious quantities in orders - like jbhifi online is that smart…)

        Am I missing something here?

        When Michalek tried to order 10 for his colleagues in his office, he got flamed. But when cheapm8 orders 10 (and whose mate also orders multiples), his pic is greeted with admiration.

        I don't get the difference in reaction.

        •  

          When michaelek tried to order 10, people thought they had a chance at getting one. The fact that one person ordered 11 means that 10 other OzB'ers would have missed out.

          cheepm8 posted about his 10 AFTER it was confirmed that it was a price error - the price went up to $85. Obviously nobody was going to get one for $5, so congrats to cheepm8 for possibly being the only one to get the deal.

          I pity the poor JB salesperson though!

  •  

    OK checked my checkout cart and i still have one there!!! Does anyone know how long they stay there for before they disappear. could leave the computer on for a couple of days then process it. If payment option was not needed i would have happily sent it to someone as I have one already :(

  •

  •  

    Lol damn I'm late to the party again, but good work guys, hope it's not a pricing error that'd be awesome!!

    $5.00 was supposed to be the cover not the reader itself, Thanks IT dept at JBHIFI.

    Ok, shall I buy the cover for the same price as the reader ????

      Same. And I only wanted the one. Yet, others got ten no problem. And not a word from JB themselves.

      Never really expected to receive it but would have been nice to have seen a little more consistency and professionalism.

    I know last year in US when a $2500 fare went online as $25.00, the customers went mad and bought the tickets for $25.00 and Flight company had no choice except to honour the deal as it's companies responsibility for advertising the right info on website at first place.

    So, if JBHIFI don't honour this we all should hire a lawyer and fight against them to honour the deal!!!!

        Just need to find a lawyer who'll take on a class action lawsuit on a no win, no fee basis. If we win the lawyer gets to keep 33.33% of the Sony Readers as their fee,

      cool… you do that mate. Keep us posted.

      •  

        Going back a few years to my uni days but i always thought advertised prices were "an invitation to treat" and that they didnt have to be honored, some companies do honor them to save face.

        This was a uk uni and it was just a few law modules on a marketing course so please done take legal action or neg me if it turns out i am talking out of my hoop.

    •  

      How can we say that this is not and cheap publicity and advertisement. It's not the first time that JB has done this . What if COD or other sites post a deal …say ps4 for 10 dollars and they give out one unit to their staff but still attract a huge traffic.

        If this is publicity, they're not doing themselves favours by not honouring it.

    • +2 votes

      as it's companies responsibility for advertising the right info on website at first place.

      The T&C for using their website stipulates:

      JB Hi-Fi reserves the right to cancel, at any time before delivery and for whatever reason, an Order that it has previously accepted. JB Hi-Fi may do this for example, but without limitation, where:
      (c) Goods ordered were subject to an error on the Website, for example, in relation to a description, price or image, which was not discovered prior to the Order being accepted;

      https://www.jbhifionline.com.au/termsconditions/Information/...

      The airline decided to turn it around and make it a marketing coup by honouring it. They got free press coverage worldwide. That's not going to happen for JB and an e-reader.

    This from the ACCC website:

    Misleading advertising

    It is illegal for a business to make claims to customers about its goods or services—including claims about price—that are incorrect or likely to create a false impression. This includes advertisements or statements in any media (e.g. print, radio, television or online) and any claim made by a person representing your business.

    Intention is irrelevant. You may breach the law even if you thought the statement was correct when you made it.

      Having a right and being able to exercise it are different things.
      And I am sure there are disclaimers on the website about pricing errors.

    • +2 votes

      Yep, but look at the relevant laws. From the Australian Consumer Law, Section 47 states:

      "The displayed price will include where the price is: annexed to, written, printed, stamped or located on the goods or anything used in connection with the good; displayed on anything on which the goods are mounted for display; published in a catalogue which is still current; or is in any other way represented so that consumers could reasonably infer that the price is applicable to the goods. It does not include where a price is displayed in a currency other than Australian or where the markings on the goods are not considered the price or are a manifest typographical error."

      This is obviously a typo - if the displayed price is a typo, the supplier is not obliged to provide the good.

      Oh, and someone below's pointed out a bit from their website too.
