          wow check out the pos/neg ratio! People are really getting sick of dicks dodgy antics. Dick Smith rep if you are around, take note and let the guys up the chain know we aren't impressed…

        • @Riczter:
          It's certainly a bad PR move. But if you add up the + votes on all the DSE deals posted today, it adds up to more than the total number of + and - votes for this post.

    • +2

      They have two listings for the same JVC TV, one is $449 but use code for 30% off, the other is $399 direct with no code. What the?

      I was looking at the OPPO R7 Plus yesterday and it was in stock. Might have sold out but I am thinking they pulled the stock from the store while this 30% sale is on.

      • +2

        Yes ofc they did, still in stock on their website :)

      • +1

        why didn't they just exclude from the deal. Then the 15% deal could be utilised. But alas DS is a bit shifty like that.

  • +23

    Im looking to buy a pebble, was $105 yesterday, today back to $150. No good for anyone looking for the fabled $70-80.

    Note 5 out of stock

    • +1

      $769 would've been a good price. Pretty sure they just marked it "out of stock" so that it's exempted from the deal.

      • +1

        Yep, exactly

        • +2

          No surprises here. Out of stock, or jacked up prices (compared to the previous day). Plenty of examples here of this appalling practice. What you might call a DICK move!

    • so let me get this straight.. sale starts at 10am and then the note 5 is out of stock at 10:11am?

      • sounds just like a doorbuster special in a retail store?

        • -2

          wrong.. door buster specials are usually advertised as such, that there is limited stock available, and for a limited time… Nowhere did Dick Smith say it was a "doorbuster" special, with limited stock. and even with a doorbuster sale, there still needs to be adequate stock available for that sale, and if there isn't adequate stock available, a comparable product for a comparable price must be provided.. or even a back order on the out of stock item.. Nowhere in those terms and conditions above does it state any of this.

          edit: and also, even if there were something in the terms and conditions, unfortunately they cannot exclude themselves from legislation and the ACL. They cannot exclude rights given to us under Law…

        • -1

          @christiaan: Did DSE specifically advertise the Note 5 for sale at 30% off?

        • -1


          No, but apparently you can't advertise a storewide sale on ebay unless you got sufficient stock(whatever number that is) of all the items you have for all of Australia and if you do not have it, or enough of it, you're not allowed to put it as "out of stock"

        • @eug: https://www.facebook.com/dicksmithaustralia/photos/a.4186295…

          What's the first product on that picture?

        • -1

          @christiaan: Gee, you need to calm down. You sound like a very angry person, all because you missed out on buying a phone on sale.

          The next question is, did you miss out because you were slow? A Note 5 at 30% off would be quite a bargain so if they only had limited stock, it would have been snapped up pretty quickly, just like any other sale.

          If they removed all Note 5s from their store before the sale started, then that's another story.

        • @eug: Dick Smith are notorious for this behaviour. I am passionate about retailers doing the right thing, and their tactics in this case are definitely not the right thing. If they know the Note 5 is going to be popular, they need to anticipate the demand and stock up accordingly.

          And it's quite simple, this Note 5 is brand new, never been discounted, and is sure to stir up massive demand when advertised at 30% off. It is against the law (and called bait advertising) for merchants to advertise a product and not have enough stock to meet the demand. (http://www.accc.gov.au/publications/advertising-selling/adve…)

          According to this thread, another ozbargainer posted that the Note 5 was out of stock 11 mins into the sale. They even extended the sale and didn't add any more stock to their inventory, and didn't offer to take back orders or even to provide a similar product… All the while the phone was in stock on their online store, but they wouldn't supply it to customers who missed out because it was being offered on ebay and not their online store?!?! Just because they weren't offering the phone through their online store, only ebay, they think they are exempt from the law, which is completely unacceptable.

          You may settle for this type of behaviour, and good on you, but i don't. I don't even care about the phone, i'm just sick to death of any retailer who doesn't play by the rules.

        • -1


          Not sure if ebay has to follow the same rules. Would it also apply to Gumtree?

        • @christiaan:

          They even extended the sale and didn't add any more stock to their inventory, and didn't offer to take back orders or even to provide a similar product…

          Have you been to many sales in real life?

          All the while the phone was in stock on their online store, but they wouldn't supply it to customers who missed out because it was being offered on ebay and not their online store?!?!

          Could you please point me to the law that requires retailers to completely exhaust their stock at a discounted price during a sale? Or one that says it's illegal to limit the number of items on sale?

          i'm just sick to death of any retailer who doesn't play by the rules.

          Good on you for lodging a complaint. I have different priorities in my life. I try not to let the little things bother me so much.

          It is against the law

          OK, so let us know what the ACCC says when they get back to you, whichever way it goes. Please don't just disappear after this.

        • @ozhunter: They are operating under Dick Smith so yes they need to follow the rules. Anyone engaged in trade in Australia must follow the ACL, regardless of the platform.

        • @eug: I'm assuming you work for Dick Smith, or enjoy a healthy argument, but i myself have other things to do than argue with you on the details. Read the ACCC link i posted in my previous comment and do some critical thinking about how this may apply to this particular situation. Remember that they sold out within 11 mins (or maybe ever sooner, they may have had them out of stock from the beginning) and yet it was the first pictured item in their "30% off ebay sale" that ran for a week after they apparently "sold out" and at no time did they restock… they even had the nerve to extend the sale when they clearly didn't have any Note 5's (THE FIRST PRODUCT PICTURED ON THEIR FACEBOOK AD) in stock……. this is a classic, unequivocal, undeniable case of bait advertising.

          What is interesting is how i'm not getting support from people on this even though there are 5 pages of people bagging Dick Smith for their misleading actions… It's fine though, I will let you know if/when i get a response from the ACCC and if/when anything comes of it.

        • @christiaan:

          What is interesting is how i'm not getting support from people on this

          People come here for bargains. Lots and lots of people got really good bargains, so they're happy.

          even though there are 5 pages of people bagging Dick Smith for their misleading actions

          Welcome to the internet. I think forums are like pubs. On Friday night people might air their work frustrations to their friends at the start, then get over it and have a good time the rest of the night.

          I will let you know if/when i get a response from the ACCC and if/when anything comes of it.

          Great, can't wait to hear what happens either way.

        • @christiaan:

          There's been few forums posts about it https://www.ozbargain.com.au/search/node/dicksmith+accc?page…

          Then again, Dicksmith seems to be ozbargainer's favorite store with all the deals posted https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/214341#comment-3103479

          Not saying that I agree with what they do, but they still have a lot of bargains.

  • I think they will restock since the deal just started - 3 days to go.

    • +22

      Most probably with a 25% price increase as well.

      • The Microsoft adapter I was looking at "went off" sale price of $75 & reverted back to $100 RRP.

    • +20

      They'll "restock" on the fourth day.

      • +1

    Very good price for the Canon 7D Mark II - $1605 after $200 Canon cashback. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Canon-7D-Mark-II-Body-DSLR-/26175…

    • Do you or anyone know how many of the same model you can buy and get the cashback for?

      I'm not sure from the wording in the T&C's, which is "Participants can submit more than one claim for a cashback provided that each claim is based on the purchase (during the Purchase Period) of a separate Eligible Product and is otherwise made in accordance with these Terms and Conditions." Would separate Eligible Products be only one 7D MkII and one 5D (for example), or could it be 2 x 1200D purchased in different transactions?

      Link is here for the full details, https://www.canon.com.au/en-AU/Personal/Products/Special-Off…

      • You could get half a dozen 1200D's if you like - they're all eligible.

    ~$650 C&C for the Sony 40" UA40J6200, which is a good price for a small TV for the bedroom. It's listed at 15% off already so that's a crazy low price.

    • +4

      40" is considered a small TV for the bedroom these days?

      • I'd say standard for bedroom. Small for lounge.

      • +2

        Small in the context of TVs around the house, I would say it's med-large for a bedroom.

      • +6

        Maybe if the bedroom is the size of a small acreage.

        Our first TV was approx. 20" but that was in the '70s… Nowadays everything is extralarge.

    • Just locked one in at $653.8 plus 2.5% cashrewards. I think it is a decent price. Next cheapest on staticice is $890

      • Good price. They have no stock left though currently

    • +4

      I think you meant Samsung not Sony - Dick Smith don't seem to sell Sony tv's anymore.

    ugh. logitech m570 was ~$50 yesterday now it's $105, why did i plus this again? XD

  • +23

    Typical dick smith playing games, everything out of stock all of a sudden, these guys aren't even hiding it any more

  • +9

    So many things out of stock :/ Looking at the logitech presenters, the R700 is out of stock and the R400 is more expensive than the newer model LOL… Honestly there aren't many good deals, would even consider negging this deal out of pure hate for dse ebay antics.

  • +3

    noticed the prices for some items are back to RRP i.e. universal remote OFA Essence 4 $59 when it was $20.XX 2 days ago.

  • +13

    How to advertise a discount and not give a discount… ask DSE. :-(

  • any good laptop deals???

        yep, dick move

  • +24

    Every DSE item in my watch list that I've been following lately is now out of stock.

    • +3

      I have to agree with you there. As I scroll through the products many are listed out of stock although they are in stock at dicksmith.com.au. They are the same company so why the double standards?

  • +17

    This is from a Click & Collect order I placed with DSE 12 July.

    DSAU_M7447 1 Belkin World Travel Surge Protection Mains Adaptor $34.46

    The same item is currently $69.98 on their eBay store. The same item is under $50 on their own website. What a disgrace.

    Anyone else notice that all their items got edited this morning. I'm unable to review the revisions though

    • +4

      It's $69.98 on their website.

      It was $33.54 a few days ago - they had a sale price, now they've reverted back to RRP and given customers a 30% coupon to bring the price back down. The ACCC will be happy that DSE are complying with the law by not advertising false "was" prices. The customer should be happy they don't have to pay RRP.

      • +1

        You're right. apologies. I looked at the domestic adapter.

        • I share your frustration with their price jingling, particularly when you're after something specific rather than an impulse buy of the best bargain.

      • No the ACCC is not very happy. For any discount to be advertised off any price, the non discounted price must have actually had products sold for a period of time at that price. That is , DSE are saying that the normal price is the RRP and the customer is getting a discount off that. But the item was not previously sold for the RRP price.

        • Hmm, did you click on the link Thrift supplied?

        • @eug: sorry eug, I missed your comment. No I didn't I was referring in general. That said I have not noticed DSE ever using the term RRP on their site. Looking today the price is $36.12. psy's price above from the 12th July is $34.46. It looks like their normal selling price for this product is under $37. Regardless, to have legally complied with an advertised discount it must be off the previous price that it was sold at, for a "reasonable time". If investigated they would need to show actual sales to real customers during that period before the advertised discount.

          Basically with the way they chop and change pricing, send out flyers that run at the same time, with again a different price, it is pretty much impossible for DSE to ever advertise an actual monetary value or percentage off, legally. If they just stated the price there would be no issue, it is only when they falsely quote savings(which they do on their website, using the slogan "Hot Price" etc).

    • From what I see, dick's prices are always like heart pulse up & down. I can't tell what is their regular price anymore.

      Just this adaptor in particular, the 30 days chart will tell you

  • can anyone suggest good i5 or i7 FHD laptop deals either ebay click15 or dickmith offers?

    • HP Spectre X360 seems like a good price from DS after 30%

        It was a good price and now they've removed it. :\

        • It was a very good price, managed picked one up. Shall see if i can actually pick up from store.

  • Don't forget cashrewards etc if you do find something you want in stock.

      The clamp is good when you want clamp and leave it.

      • Looking for more general travelling purposes (travel videos, experiences etc), if I can clamp it on my backpack or something like that, I ordered a GoPro of the previous DSE deal so i'm still waiting for it to arrive. Just thought I'd make use of this deal….
