Dyson DC45 - FREE on Pickup with DC54 Pro $793.60 or DC54 Animal $717.60 @ The Good Guys eBay

151
CTECH20

Edit
Thanks to SirFlibbled for calling TGG call centre and confirming the deal is a GO.
"If you have any problems when picking it up, they said just to call 1300 466 348 and they'll set the store straight."
His comment is somewhere in the thread below.


Hi Guys,

Firstly I just want to thanks TRENT86 for the original Dyson deal:
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/187532

and BTB for the original eBay discount:
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/187802

I realise this is almost a duplicate post but with a further 20% saving off the TGG pricing due to the eBay sale, it's worth re-posting just to get attention.

The original deal was that you can get a free DC45 Stick Vac if you purchase either the DC54 Animal Pro ($992) or DC Animal Barrel Vacuum (897) from TGG online store OR in-store.
However, I noticed people were having trouble price-matching these vacuums AND still getting the free DC45 so I contacted TGG Banksia and Auburn (although Auburn didn't have any stock for the Pro) and confirmed that you CAN do a click and collect via the eBay sale for 20% off their price AND still get the free DC45 on pick-up. I do recommend to do the pick-up and to double check with the store of your choice before making the purchase to check stock and confirm they will honour the deal. Deliveries could just be messy if someone forgets to post the DC45.

Keep in mind you MUST use the CTECH20 code and pay with PayPal.

This makes the DC54 Animal Pro 793.60 pickup with the "free" DC45:

and the DC54 Animal 717.60 pickup with the "free" DC45:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-Dyson-DC54-Animal-Barrel-Vacu...

Remember, CONFIRM WITH YOUR NOMINATED STORE FIRST to ensure they will honour the deal before making the purchase.

Thanks again guys.

    Thanks OP!

    ordered for Castle Hill, called them up to confirm as well.

  •  

    I called both the Chatswood and Auburn stores, both told me the free vac only counts either in store or on their online store (not ebay).

    •  

      I guess it depends on the manager of each store.

      The way I understood it, technically they're not getting any less money via eBay/PayPal so they should have no problem honouring it but it could just be a messy amount of paperwork and I bet a few people would have called and checked and annoyed the manager?

      •  

        I agree I believe paypal/ebay absorb the cost so they getting the same money but because the original add doesn't apply to ebay I guess it is up to the discretion of the manager whether he want to honor it.

    Called Auburn and Wetherill Park they both said we'd get either the 20% off or the free hand stick. Not both promotions at once.

    •  

      I'd argue it. The T&Cs state:

      *Applies 24/03/15 – 06/04/15 inclusive ("Promotion Period”). To be eligible to receive a bonus Stick vacuum (‘Bonus’) valued at $448RRP customers must purchase a selected Dyson Animal Pro Vacuum Cleaner or Dyson Animal Vacuum Cleaner (model: 65022-01, 65027-01) in one complete transaction from a The Good Guys store or online during the Promotion Period. Bonus will be issued at Point of Sale. Strictly 1 Bonus per customer. For full terms & conditions click here.

      It doesn't say their online store - just that it's ONLINE during the promotional period.

      •  

        I did argue that but I also noticed that you can't have both in the same transaction because one, the discount probably wouldn't apply at all and more importantly two, they don't have the dc 45 on their ebay so you are unable to get both in the cart for one transaction anyway.

        •  

          Yeah, that method will only work for THEIR online system. That's why I had to call to confirm they will honour it even if I bought it via eBay.

        •  

          @mthucs: But technically even If I did call and confirm, tomorrow (or whenever) I decided to pick up the two vacuum cleaners they would have no obligation to give me the second one for free because they were not bought in the same transaction, therefore not meeting the requirements of their promo.

        •  

          @Annoying Source:

          Then it's refund time?

        •  

          @mthucs: I was planning on doing that if that happened, but I was unable to get either chatswood or Auburn to confirm that I would get the bonus vacuum and I was told by two different people that the offer did not apply to ebay, therefore there is not bargain to be had, at least not to me.

        •  

          huh? It says you just need to purchase the DC54 in 'one complete transaction'. You don't need to purchase the DC45 (stick vacuum) in the same transaction. The bonus will be issued at the point of sale.

        • +2 votes

          @Annoying Source: Yes it does.

          "customers must purchase a selected Dyson Animal Pro Vacuum Cleaner or Dyson Animal Vacuum Cleaner (model: 65022-01, 65027-01) in one complete transaction from a The Good Guys store or online during the Promotion Period."

          The condition is
          1 - Purchase a selected Dyson Animal or Animal Pro
          2 - In one complete transactions
          3 - From a Good Guys store or online
          4 - during the promotional period.

          Seems like you'd meet that criteria through Ebay.

        •  

          @SirFlibbled:

          Though their 'one complete transaction' involves putting in cart both the DC54 and the DC45. And there's no chance to put the DC45 in the eBay store because the item doesn't appear there.

          That's my understanding anyway.

        •  

          @SirFlibbled: You guys are right, I read that completely wrong, I apologize.

          I guess you are technically buying it online and you should get it. I think I might buy one for chatswood and argue to get it.

        •  

          @Annoying Source:

          Maybe try a different store?

          I don't want you to waste your time doing all this and then having Chatswood say "NO DEAL" and do the gesture.
          It's already annoying enough when the guy on TV does it.

        •  

          @mthucs: If that happens I'll just get them to refund it, saying that the only reason I bought it was because I wanted both. Plus on their side it will still say they got the $992 so they didn't lose anything.

        •  

          @wookiie1984: Not what the T&Cs say though. It only mentioned you need to buy one or the other. That might not be what they meant, it's certainly what they've said.

          Actually here's the full T&Cs - http://www.thegoodguys.com.au/cs/groups/public/documents/web... - It does make specific reference to a GG Warehouse store.

    •  

      I spoke to a specific person at Auburn but don't want to mention his/her name in case he/she gets in a tonne of trouble because of it..

      Sorry.

  •  

    Wow.. was going to buy an Animal Pro this weekend. Pretty easy to get it for $800 but with the stick vacuum is amazing value.

  •  

    In order for TGG to get their money back on the stick vacuum they have to be on the same docket as the animal vacuum. Can't buy the DC45 on the ebay store as far as I can see.

  •  

    Check with QLD Browns Plains Store store sales, Lea.
    She said the deals is in-store only, I asked about eBay deal and she seems has no idea.
    It would good if they honour the eBay deal together with the combo deal :(

  •  

    Just uploaded a copy of my invoice. Went to pick up my microwave and the two vacuums are on backorder. Well, the dc54 is but they can't give me the dc45 until I collect the dc54.

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. It's the image for the deal in case it hasn't updated for some of you.

    I'm called the Good Guys call centre rather than trying to deal with the individual stores.

    I explained it to the guy. He checked with his supervisor and gave me the green light to buy it on Ebay.

    If you have any problems when picking it up, they said just to call 1300 466 348 and they'll set the store straight.

      Sorry. Didn't mean to neg.

      Fat fingers, small phone.

    •  

      I tried calling the call centre and the guy I dealt with said it was a no go again. Same old one or the other promotion.

      I am not having any luck

      •  

        Maybe ask SirFlibbled for the names of the people he spoke to? More importantly the supervisor.

        I can't do more than suggest that sorry.

        •  

          They guy I spoke to was 'Mattie'

          He said that TGG doesn't care about the 20% off. That's Ebay's thing they get the full amount regardless.

      •  

        Any luck today?

    Alright guys,

    I think this deal is pretty straightforward.

    Just to sum it up for those with a TL;DR issue:

    The deal is a go. SirFlibbled called the call centre to confirm and get the green light.
    You order via eBay and use PayPal and the code and nominate a store for collection.
    I personally recommend you call the store in advance to check stock/make sure they will honour the deal. If not, give them the call centre number to set things straight and then make the order. It's at the top of the post.

    You can risk just buying it first and then trying to collect the DC45 on pickup but that's up to you. I prefer to avoid headaches when dealing face to face with people.

    Other than that, the price is 20% off and the rest of the info is in the deal post.

    GL and have a good night.

      Well I just bought it through Ebay (had to wait until I got home as I needed my QFF info so I got my 4 points per $).

      Wish me luck.

      Edit: My PP invoice shows TGG received $992. Should be no reason why they wont honour the deal. They shouldn't even know about it.

      •  

        Let me know how you go. I was thinking about this exact same deal with the CTECH20 code but previously on Trents deal I rang for a price match and they told me either price match or the bonus which was a bummer.

  •  

    lol interesting, someone just bought 2

    •  

      Too bad.. One per customer for the DC45. Lol.

      It's actually in the terms and conditions.

      Unless they're doing a dodgy and going to two stores under two names so as not to get caught and claim twice. I guess that would be legal if it is under two names.

      •  

        You could make a good profit. Sell the DC54 for $800-900 then sell the DC45 for $300-400.

        •  

          True. Oh well. Here's to being too lazy.

          I like a good sale but hate flipping stuff for a profit. Don't think I'd like the guilt.

  •  

    I just got confirm from TGG Brighton, Vic to GO

    "If you place the order through ebay we will add the bonus stick on for you. Please let me know once you place the order."

    So, placed order and will probably pick them up today.

    So I thought I'd give an update on how well mine went.

    As I sated above I called both Chatswood and Auburn store sometime yesterday, they both stated that it didn't count and I wouldn't get both.

    Even tho I was defeated without even trying I still followed the comments, then a bunch of people got some stores to do it (while other store still wouldn't) and the call center confirmed it. So I pulled the trigger and ordered from Chatswood (a store that previously denied the deal through eBay).

    Fast forward to this afternoon, I approached the store With my head fill with stuff like "I previously called the call center and they said it was okay, and they said to call", "It is in the terms of the deal that it has to be bought from an online store and eBay is an online store" and finally "The only reason I bought this was to get the free one"

    I walked in and waited a few minutes to be served, after which I sated that I was here to pick up an online order, I was then asked my last name and she went to grab my order. She only came out with the DC 54 pro, I stated that it should come with a free DC 45, she replied that it didn't count through eBay, I then told her the first two of the three statements from the above paragraph. She then asked her supervise (who was right next to her) and I told him the same two lines, he said he would have to call the call center, I said that is exactly what they told me to tell you to do, he then told her to just put it through.

    So without any fight at all, I was able to get the bonus Dyson vacuum. Now I'm not saying that every store will be like this but they have no reason to deny you the bonus.

    tldr: I bought one vacuum cleaner but I left with two.

    Cheers for the deal! Ordered one this morning to collect from Malaga in WA. Called the store prior and they knew all about it already. Picked up this arvo with no issues.

  •  

    I feel I have started something that can't be stopped…

    At least not until the eBay deal ends. :D

  •  

    Thanks OP. Picked both up at O'Connor (WA).

  •  

    My local never ended up replying to my email about the deal (the same one that denied me the price match on Trent86's deal). Might try my luck with the next closest store…

  •  

    Gave up and called and my vacuum has been sitting there since yesterday for pick up. An email would have been nice…

  •  

    For those who purchased this … Masters Ebay store now has the DC54 Animal for 20% off, making it $688.35. (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/189001)

    Since the Good Guys offer a 30 Day Price Beat Guarantee (Refund 120% of the difference) you can get $35.10 back. This will make the total cost $682.50 for both the DC54 and DC45.

    As it's a public holiday today, I can't call the store to find out if they will actually honour the deal, but I'm certainly going to try it out tomorrow :)

    •  

      I don't think they will honour it.

      TGG wouldn't do a price match with any other store because of the free DC45 so I doubt they'll honour the price beat.

      But who knows? Keep us posted.

    •  

      They won't price match off eBay
