      Not for you.

        nor you, the redemption code has been omitted…

        • +13

          Go back to bed and wait till 28th, we all know code usually comes up 24hrs prior to sale.

        • +29

          @viki8702:

          Go back to bed and wait till 28th

          Wait for the retailers to put up their prices by 20% ?

        • +29

          @tuzii:
          Yeah, those $500 macbook air's were a rip off. I hope nobody on here got ripped off with that terrible price.

        • @mskeggs: best buy ever!

        • +6

          @tuzii:

          I got some Beyerdynamic DT990's worth $300 for $150. So you are generally talking crap.

        • +5

          @tuzii: oh do you mean the times I took advantage of 20% off at various times to score myself a ps4 for around 340 and wiiu mk10 bundle for 308? Man you must be right, I must be kidding myself

  • +73

    Who wants to bet they will markup the prices to make more profit just before the sale starts

    20% off Tech at Selected Retailers @ eBay

    Title of deal should be 20% off Tech at Selected Retailers After 20% Price Hike @ eBay

    • +28

      PC Case Gear
      definitely did, check their website then check their ebay store.
      Prices are 20% more……

      • +29

        Why defiantly though?

        • +21

          cmon now its nearly 2am - definitely

        • +5

          Because they defy you to buy somewhere else?

          The spelling police dont sleep mate, they stalk your dreams.

        • @dojomojo: correcting spelling is a waste of time. The person usually doesn't make the connection with the "new" word.

      • +13

        You sure it's 20% more? I noticed a lot of their products just have $10-20 more in cost, and they have free standard shipping, while the site's shipping is normally $16-20 for me for a component, it seems to be covering the general shipping cost from what I've seen, and then there's their usual 3% credit card surcharge.

        Although it does suck if you want more than 1 item now that I think about it, so their method of pricing still sucks on ebay.

        • +2

          Most products I looked at were an average of 10% more (eg. bundling 'free shipping' into the cost, and the ~9% of ebay and paypal fees).

      • +3

        Their ebay includes shipping while their website doesn't, and their shipping costs are quite high. But they did mark up prices by about 10% by the looks of things. Pity, just bought a Ducky keyboard from them, would have been nice to save a little bit.

        • +5

          not surprising as eBay charges 9.9% fees.

        • +6

          Sell via their own web store… 0% fees on sale…. sell via ebay that 10% fee on sale, another 2.5% on paypal payments… yet SHOCKED they mark up ebay store by 10%!

      • Yep, majority of the items are more expensive on their eBay store. Although there are a couple of products that are cheaper on their eBay store (as well as having free shipping)

      • +6

        Well for what I'm after it'll be cheaper with the 20% off still.

        For example:
        EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB - $835 Posted from the website will come down to $700 posted with the 20% off on ebay.

        Considering the same card costs ~$807 posted from Amazon.

      • +1

        It looks like they incorporated eBay/Paypal fees and added shipping so they can offer free shipping, since they charge freight on everything on their website. I imagine this is so that they can jump on the free shipping train. Their prices are still the most competitive, plus better customer service than MSY/Centrecom which is my other options locally. 20% plus 2% cash back is still really damn good. Picking up a new Ducky today I think!

      • theyre NOT 20% more.

        Especially for Kingston Hyper X Fury which is $92 delivered

        as opposed to $99

        Which means since they only have one outlet you save ~$6 by ordering through their ebay store even if you live next door…

        Who knew being lazy could pay off?

    • +61

      20% off after 20% increase would still be 4% discount.

      • +8

        True OzBargainer right here

      • +3

        And additional 2% cash back on pre-discounted price from Cashrewards also counts.

      • This makes me happy

    • I wonder if this will include iPads and other apple products.

  • Ebgames has ebay store?

    • +10

      Yet when you go there its all old iphones and ipads splashed all over the front page…The only consoles available are ps3 and xbox360…its like where old technology goes to die.

      • +2

        Exactly!
        For me it looks like a dump.

      • +7

        If that's where old technology goes to die, shouldn't they have all the PS4 and Xbone stuff listed there, too?

        • +1

          found the PC master race!

        • +5

          Like Apple, some tech is so redundant it's simply not worth mentioning, best it's sold in stores where the old and uninformed shop.

        • -6

          @Ebany: What a unretarded fanboi comment. Seriously I can tell you put yer brains before the slavish devotion to a brand and that is ensuring that you make considered, balanced, unbiased and thoughtful comments regarding technology brands.

          Really. I mean it.

  • 20% Off hmm might be time to buy that new tv.

    • +12

      make sure you check the prices now on the item you want, before this offer is active, so see if you are really getting a good deal…

      • +5

        A true ozbargainer would already know.

      • Yes I know as well as checking prices on staticice too.

      • -7

        make sure you check the prices now on the item you want, before this offer is active, so see if you are really getting a good deal…

        Thanks for stating the obvious, perhaps you'll tell us next to add postage costs on before comparing prices as well!

    • -2

      TV worth buying aren't advertised on eBay.

      • not true. i just bought a Samsung UA48H5000 48inch TV for $622… delivered to my door… with that CTECH20 code.

        happy with that.

  • some very good deals to be had…… as long as there's no price hike!

    Eg Galaxy note 4 from GG $788*0.8 = $630!

    • +5

      you know that's not going to happen

      • yeah :(

        was editing my comment just when you commented!

      • +3

        GG's price is meant to last till April 12. As I recall from last 20% off promo they were the only one that didn't jack up price and people were able to get a deal

        • I hope TGG doesn't jack up the price of note 4. :(

        • I agree and hence why I bought a Panasonic compact Digital Camera then.

      • +1

        According to TGG tech sales promotion it will end on Saturday, this deal starts on Sunday so I'm afraid we miss on good price. Was looking of getting S5 myself.

        • on what product? the note 4? on the main website it says it's that price till April 12. I think they will either pull the model from ebay or keep it at that price, I don't think they'll jack it up. We'll see I guess

        • @tchi6:

          S5, offer ends on 28 of March. For some reason Note 4 ends on 12 of April, so for those after note you might be lucky.

    • It's 20% up to $500. So should be $500*0.8 + 288 = $688
      But minus $15.76 from CashRewards should bring it to $672.24

      • +3

        I thought it meant up to savings of $500

        • Sweet..thanks for clearing that up.

        • @aarick: no worries!

        • It is, the $500 cap is max discount.

      • my Order total came up as follows:

        Subtotal AU $778.00
        Total voucher amount -AU $155.60
        Total AU $622.40

  • Yes it finally came back, hopefully something good!!!

  • PCCG is pretty expensive even with 20% off :(

    Edit: Tuzii beat me to it

    • +2

      Can't speak to their ebay store but I've always found them pretty competitive price wise or at the least on par with all the other online retailer prices.

      • their website is fine, their eBay store is not.
        Ever since it opened (their eBay store) it has been 10-12% more than their actual online store…

        • +9

          Well ebay does charge 10%..

        • +1

          @raven2000: Paypal 5% as well

        • +3

          @raven2000:

          Nope. Ebay charges private people 10% but not such big seller, they pay way less.

        • +1

          @dosada: Link pls. Also, it should be noted that at the time of this comment PCCG has only had a feedback of 28, not exactly what I'd call a "big seller". While I don't dispute what you've stated I do have a good friend who eventually gave up their Ebay store due to the continued rate rises.

        • @Ebany: Your friend sounds like a big seller what with the failing to continue and everything.

        • @Diji1: That's quite possibly one of the most stupid and ignorant comments I've read all day. Obviously it was meant as some sort of personal attack but simply fails on so many levels.

  • +4

    Hopefully this results in some good XB1 and PS4 prices again.

    • +2

      you can get potatoes cheaper from harris farms

      • I though Harris sold coffee?!?

  • Good guys and DSE both have the Galaxy Tabs S for $407 right now, what's the bet that changes before Sunday?

    Looking forward to a good PS4 bundle though.

    • it shouldn't, DSE Have 15% off Samsung tablets till 4th April

    • +1

      DSE doesn't seem to have the Tab S on their ebay store though…

      • Ironic since they never seem to have "Sale" items stocked in their physical stores either.

      • ha, they did at the time I posted. I guess they're doing a cleanout of all items like that prior to the sale!

  • +3

    Are they allowed to raise their prices due to eBay sales? Seems like something eBay would not be impressed about.

    • +61

      you must be new here

      • +4

        Just seems like some form of price gouging to me, these sellers are saying "thanks eBay" and voiding their efforts to drive sales.

        • +16

          You're absolutely right Tasmaniac. And I just checked your profile, you ARE new here, so welcome. Unfortunately many of these ebay deals have seen the retailers raising prices before the sale day.

        • +2

          Yeah it happened with the pre Christmas 20% sale as well but the question remains, why are eBay turning a blind eye and is it ethical trading practice?.

        • +31

          @Tasmaniac: eBay and ethical don't belong in the same sentence

        • +5

          eBay should monitor this and not offering that 20% off for any items jacked up just before code

        • +8

          @Tasmaniac:

          Hope people don't confuse you with me! :(

        • @tazmaniak: :) lol, did you change the spelling when you realised I'd already used the gamertag? ;)

        • +2

          @Tasmaniac:
          He's been here since 2009 if you clicked his profile.

        • @Tasmaniac:

          I got a tab s 10.5 for like 375 last year during that sale. Pretty sure that's a win

        • @Tasmaniac: Nah been using this one for 6 years on ozb, and 10+ years in other places. Wish I'd been really obscure from the beginning, as occasionally try to sign up with stuff and mine is already taken!

        • @inose: for sure, there were definitely still some bargains to be had. This sale worked out better than expected as well (for the first 12 hours that is):).

        • +1

          @tazmaniak: Yeah I get the same:/, I guess there's an ever increasing number of people looking for original usernames.

      • +3

        It almost sounds like the First Homeowner Grant where property prices just goes up more once its announced with sellers being greedy

        • True, but the market dictates the price.

          "Greedy sellers" take the extra buyers are willing to pay.

    • Yes. Harvey Norman is a classic example.

      They will do a "huge" sale off the "ticketed price". They simply raise that ticketed price prior to the sale.

      I once went shopping for a couple of split system aircons at HN and, having found the ones I wanted, decided to come back in a few days when the massive "20% off all air-cons" weekend sale started. Had trouble finding them even though they had over 300 in stock, turns out they had raised the ticketed price by 28% which threw me off the trail. Purchasing them on the special would have cost me more than I would have paid a few days prior. They reduced the price back to the original from a few days ago (without any discount), didn't even look guilty when the sales person explained that this was how it had always been done.
