Notable products

Playstation 4 from Dick Smith - $399.20 after 20% off

PlayStation 4 from The Gamesmen $396 after 20% off

XboxOne 500GB TitanFall Console Bundle - $478.40 + $5 shipping after 20% off

Nexus 5 (16GB, Black) $320 iPad Air 16GB Celluar $540.8 Shipped and etc

Since Video Games and Consoles are mentioned, I think PS4 and Xbox One are included. However I am not 100% sure.

Eg) PS4 @ Dick Smiths is $485 at the moment, but after the 20% discount it should be $388

Update 1 : As many of you already predicted, Dick Smiths actually raised prices, so now PS4 is $503.95($499+$4.95 for shipping) and Xbox One(XboxOne 500GB TitanFall Console Bundle) is $602.95.

After the 20% discount(it applies to the shipping fee as well), PS4 should be $403.16 and Xbox One(XboxOne 500GB TitanFall Console Bundle) should be $482.36.


Xbox One(XboxOne 500GB TitanFall Console Bundle)

Update 2 : You might want to check out Kogan Ebay store. They are selling phones & tablets(including iphones and Galaxy S5) under Toy section, so the 20% discount should be applied to those phones & tablets. Plus, it seems like Kogan listed Xbox One on their store as well, but it is same price as what DSE is selling at the moment($498, after the discout $398.4 thanks arena sales).

Update 3 : By the way, I would recommend you guys to keep your eyes on Ebay Group deal. If my memory serves me right, last time Apple MacBook Air 11" 128GB was only $500 after the 20% discount. Hopefully, some similar deals are available on 21/07/2014


Update 4 : Many mobile phones, talbets and consoles that are sold by Kogan are no longer listed under the "toy" section. Make sure what you are purchasing is under the right category, so the discount can be applied.

Update 5 : Apparently PS4 is "sold out" @ DSE, just a day before, the deal starts.

Update 6 : PS4 is back on DSE ebay store @ $499(thanks kamoi) which should be $400-ish after the 20$ discount. However it says "Limited quantity remaining"


Update 7 : Sony Xperia Z, Z1, Z2and compact are still under Toy section(thanks grab_ur_freebies)


Udpate 8 : Some ipad are still under Toy section(thanks andri77), including ipad mini with retina 16GB white which should be $352 (after disc)


Update 9 : Some Samsung smartphones(including Galaxy S5) are still listed under the toy section.


However, I can not confirm the 20% discount can be applied to those smartphones, tablets and consoles that are sold by Kogan

Coupon code is CTOYTASTIC, good luck everyone

          Is she free tonight? Or do I have to pay?

    • +5

      Oh wow, the people didn't like this one.

  • +3

    This could be huge. If those things you mentioned (games/consoles) are NOT included, surely they would not have worded their promo as they did? Great post OP, standby for a landslide of (justified) appreciation I reckon…

    • Based on the terms and conditions above I don't see anything that prevents retailers from removing their items or jacking up the prices during the sale.

      • +4

        Why would they remove their items anyway? Ebay is covering the 20% off. They will get more sales because of this.

        • Not remove but it pays to jack up the price as they know people will buy it anyway thanks to the 20% off.

        • +1

          Doesn't jacking up the price negate the discount, thereby rendering the purchase pointless?

  • +8

    thanks OP for the heads up! bad ebay, stop making me spend!

    Dick Smith raised their console prices 2 days before the last eBay sale. They'll do the same here.

    • Purchase now and pay later? Will it work?

      • Unfortunately it doesn't work that way buddy

        • didnt that work when ebay has 20% off?

        • -1

          Doesnt say anywhere on the T&C that you have to purchase it on the same day as the payment

          1. This offer commences at 10:01 (AEST) on 20 July 2014 and ends at 23:59 (AEST) on 20 July 2014 (“Offer Period”).

          2. The offer entitles you to a 20% discount off the total purchase price of toys on up to five transactions (including postage) for purchases made on ebay.com.au during the Offer Period (“offer”).

        • @kamoi: My bad didnt read the T&C properly was way too excited to score a ps4 for $388

        • @kamoi: The previous deals have the same terms. But Dicksmith ebay requires immediate payment so you can't purchase now and pay later.

        • -1

          If I 'add to cart' instead of 'Buy it Now' now, and then checkout on Sunday. Will the price when I added it to cart stay the same or can it change?

        • @jdogg: The price will change if the seller changes it.

    • I can't imagine Ebay allowing that kind of behavior. I'm guessing these deals are covered by Ebay themselves so if the vendors start playing games like this it defeats the purpose of the deal.
      Maybe we should all send ebay an email advising of vendors that did this last time?
      Any specific examples?

        eBay were partnered with them in the last deal… I don't think it matters to them since they'll still get their fees.

    • +1


      Well that's not entirely true. The PS4 price dropped from $548 down to $529 2 days before the sale.

      Maybe you are thinking of the $479 deal from earlier in that week which BTW was a special price reduced for 2 days only. Sorry you couldn't stack 2 awesome deals.

    • -1

      Dick Smith $485 price for PS4 will end today 17/07/2014, so don't expect it to be that on Sunday.

    • +3

      Would it matter what price you paid at DSE, it's a a raffle if you even get the item dispatched from them!!!

    • Looks like they've just raised it to $548.

    • looks like you're right. the price has gone from $485 to $548

      • Now $499

  • Do you think it will include gaming accessories, like headsets and controllers?

    • Hopefully… After some controllers!

    Good chance for the nerds out there to pick up Warhammer / Warmachine etc miniatures at a discount! Especially the already cheaper stuff from the US

    • great work pointing that out! Wouldn't have linked the two! Ozbargins first Warhammer bargain??

  • i can't seem to see the info on the page that's linked.

    • Under the count down timer, it has terms & conditions

  • Do hobby grade rc helicopters count as toys?

    • If it's in the right category.. I'm betting yes. They don't have time to go through hundreds of thousands of listings to decide what is or isn't a toy.

      Though someone listing gift cards in the wrong category.. dunno

    If anyone sees a good deal for a decent quadcopter please yell out… Might finally get one after spending half my life watching them on YouTube wishing I could afford one :P

    • Do you mean a serious one (i.e. a Phantom) or a not so serious one (i.e. a UDI U818A)?

      • Thanks. Yeah more like the DJI Phantom… Have heard good things about them and already have a go pro so it might be time to finally get one.

        Now if only I could justify to the missus why I need one….

      • +1

        the phantom seller lifted the price from $555 to $630.. not happy

  • In.

  • How do you use it? Does it automatically apply at checkout? Or do you have to request it from eBay and they latter refund the monies?

  • +23

    Oh no, here comes another 10 page thread :)

    scotty is there any way to set up deals to give the option to display all comments pages on one page if the end user wants? Sometimes it would just easier to scroll right through a 10 pager rather than have to sift through meaningless comments on the earlier pages just because someone decided to reply to a page one comment for no reason.

    • +2

      Yeah would be helpful for searching through the comments too.

    • Totally agree… pagination tends to behave a bit weird at the best of times. E.g. you'd be checking out "new" comments and then flip a page and then they'd all have been marked as read probably because of some unknown timeout.

    • +6

      Here's a meaningless comment for all yall

      Good idea ccrap, I've started a Site Discussion thread on this request here:

    So if you sell something to yourself, 5% profit?

    • Definitely open to exploitation. May get accounts suspended though.

      Also as a seller you could list non toy items in the toys category.

    • -1

      Why 5%? As a seller you wear 10% of fees excluding paypal, so say you went the bank deposit way, then you'll make 10% profit only.

      • One of the conditions of the promo is you pay via PayPal.

    • Am I missing something, if you did sell to yourself you wouldn't get any money in, and would still have to pay eBay fee's - wouldn't that make you out of pocket?

      • +10

        List an item with one accont for $1000. Purchase with another account for $800 (eBay will cover the other $200 ie 20%). So it's $800 out from one account and $1000 in to another account. Pay ~ $125 in seller fees, ~ $75 profit. That's how I see it anyway.

        • +4

          Times 5

        • But don't they hold your funds for around 21 days?

        • profit + more with the cashback.

    • -3

      How would this even work? Unless Ebay was to reimburse the buyer the 20% instead of applying a 20% discount at checkout you would end up out of pocket wouldn't you?

      • Refer to unity1.

        The discount doesn't impact on the seller. It's all on eBay.

        • Ahh, got it.

    • eBay + PayPal fees add up to 11.9% + 30 cents. So at most 8.1% profit.

  • This is going to go off!!!

  • Does it apply for bidding items as well ? ( purchased during the day?)

    • +1

      form last deals the answer yes

  • So looking forward for list of toys…come handy for bday

  • "The total discount amount payable is capped to a maximum discount of $200 per transaction"

    • Any min spend?

      • It don't specify so iam assuming any cheap item should be fine

    • So since the "offer entitles you to a 20% discount off the total purchase price of toys on up to five transactions", if I buy 5 toys at say $1000 each, totaling $5000, I will attain a discount of $1000?

      • I don't see why not. It says $200 per transaction.

  • +2

    can't wait, going to get me some more rubiks cubes!

  • gonna splurge on some figures :)

    • +1

      Depends which category it's listed in.

    They'll all jack the prices up to RRP before the sale… :)

    • All 2,000,000,000 sellers in the toys category?

  • +1

    Terms and conditions might help too.


  • I'll have to open a new Ebay account…

    Your eBay.com.au and PayPal accounts must be active at the time of redemption (not suspended nor made inactive by eBay or PayPal) and be registered under the same email address.

    • That's what they said for the 15% off everything and 20% off from selected stores. But you could open new accounts up and claim the discount.

    • That eliminates me then. I have my Ebay and PP accounts linked but I used different addressed for security reasons.

    • I guess you can add e-mail to your current paypal and mark as primary (is that possible?) - and then purchase. And go back to original settings?
      I had to create another paypal - as original one was from my previous country (have to be same country - another condition)

  • +4

    Been waiting to get Cards Against Humanity, hopefully the discount applies to it!

    • same, i just bought it as a gift for someone earlier this week for about $32, keen to get it for myself and with this promo makes it soo cheap.

  • +4

    Might use this to get a controller to use with my PC - I have a dodgy clear plastic USB one that looks like a playstation 2 controller, but the sticks aren't all that sensitive. Does anyone else have one that they can recommend?

    Perhaps just an Xbox 360 one or something. It's to use with windows and most controller supported games seem to default to that controller for button configuration.

    • +1

      I use my xbox 360 controller on my PC and it's great!

      • i have the wired 360 controller and yes it's mostly great, but the d-pad is a bit muddy. It's the most widely supported controller on PC though.

      Logitech have a wireless controller that replicates the Xbox one. Just plugs in and works
