    I looked through 4 pages of the PC/laptop section without finding anything closely relating to a deal. What's with all the BS positives on this deal?

    500GB Samsung EVO SSD for $309??? when I can walk in to a local store (MSY) and but it for $225.

    Wow and I though some of the deals on the previous 20% were fails, this take the cake.

    Was looking for an iPhone 7 plus, does this look like a genuine Australian stock with 2 year warranty?

    • +1 vote

      They advertise Australian stock. Buy through PayPal, and if it isn't you can dispute the purchase.
      Another good way to confirm would be to ask if they can do a tax invoice showing ABN and GST.

      Edit: Also note that they do have a shopfront in Sydney that you can click and collect from - so seems like a genuine Australian business. They have also sold several phones from that listing, but their feedback of 98.3% isn't particularly promising. Should be safe if you pay through PayPal anyway. No way to dispute "Item not as described" if it isn't brand new, or a grey import.

    • +2 votes

      Part of the description reads
      'We are Australian local seller. However, for some items with limited Australian stock, please note that if the requested item runs out of stock in our warehouse, overseas stock may be sent out to the customer. Should you have any concern about this, please feel free to contact us.'
      It also has warranties listed as both 2 years apple and that you have to return the phone to them for warranty.
      I'ld skip ordering from them.

    Shocking deal downvote due to fact prices are cheaper elsewhere and price increase as part of deal - should boycott such deals if dealers significantly increase price

    • +5 votes

      Agreed. These sellers should be ashamed of themselves. What I don't understand is why they bother price hiking if ebay are the ones that 'pay' the discount anyway? They would still get what they originally listed it for and the buyer gets a discount. The only party who lose out is the one who can afford it which is ebay! Correct me if I'm wrong?

      •  

        No you're right. If you look at the Paypal statement it shows the full price listed as paid and then they give you the refund

      Already a contender for worst non-bargain post of the year. There's clearly not a bargain to be had in any of the listings. the behavior of the sellers is shameful and disgusting in the way they have clearly over-inflated prices pre-sale, so that even with a discount applied, there's still no bargains to be had. The only thing more sad than that, is the admin's here clearly trying to sell us all out to dodgy-brothers style e-retailers like these & refusing to de-list this travesty of a deal post.

      OP (addict) - this post is not a go at you, we understand you just posted the deal, you have no control over the scammers trying to dupe this community into paying appalling prices for second rate merchandise. The disappointment here is directed at the individuals who allow this nonsense to stand as a deal post, even after it clearly being identified as scummy online sales tactics.

        OzBargain admins are overzealous and don't want to annoy corporations/sponsors with neg votes so they remove them.

        Sigh. They are transparent that there's no sponsors, please stop making up crap. Negative votes are localised to OzBargain and don't even affect people who aren't part of ozbargain. But the sheer laziness for negative voting is complete BS.
        I think they are way too lenient of driveby negs. No effort into justification at all for placing a negative vote.
        Exhibit A for lazy negative vote
        Exhibit B for a very valid comment for a negative vote, although the poster of that comment didn't actually negative vote

        Then you can check all the crappy negative vote comments: "Oh, what he/she said". negative vote
        That's not justification, that's pure laziness and jumping in on the circlejerk.

          I see where you are coming from but i dont even think i have negged a deal before. Maybe once. Its definitely something i dont take lightly. I did look up maybe 5 or 6 items on my potential to buy list but everything was overly expensive. I could have elaborated in my original comment but i dont think my negative vote should be revoked so lightly.

        • -2 votes

          @ruddiger7:

          Neither should a negative vote be taken lightly either.
          There's a small table that summarizes when negative votes are valid

          "The deal is not the cheapest available" - needs to be backed with evidence.
          If you post at least one like this user here, then you would have solid ground to stand on.
          I would go for two for good measure, to show this sale is crap. I'm not saying it isn't, I have no clue who the stores are, but negative votes in OzB are given out too easily these days, then some OzB members say oh the admins be powertripping. If they were powertripping the negative votes would have been wiped off the face of the earth, and the users would be banned. But they don't. The negative votes get reviewed case by case when someone reports them.
          But the negative votes don't get reviewed case by case when someone pushes the button.

          A lot easier to accuse than to clear the name in this joint
          So just put a little more effort into the accusation.

          @cwongtech:
          People have to confirm that they have read the voting guidelines before negging and many very clearly have not.

          If everyone who had negged without providing a reason in line with the voting guidelines had instead reported it for not having any bargains listed it may have been taken down. If the people who are annoyed by this sort of post instead reported it every single time one of them came up, they might manage to reduce the number of them on Ozbargain, if not get rid of them altogether.

          I'm not entirely sure this would be the case, but certainly deals are removed for no bargain listed from time to time if people report them.

      Here's additional evidence to the court that for your particular item, it is cheaper elsewhere (as you said apple store)

          I know buddy. I just wish other OzB members would put a little more effort into negative voting rather than using someone else's reason to negative vote, as soon as a few seem to get away with negative voting by agreeing with someone else, another few jump on the bandwagon and put no effort as well.

    Just because there is 20% off != bargains to be had.

    Seems people just want to get a post up for some kudos and sacrifice a quality post.

    A 20% off sitewide would be good, because that would be for private sellers and auctions.

    Specific sellers likely have notice this is going to happen and will then jack up prices as has been done in the past.

    I think we are all used to sellers on Ebay increasing the prices each time one of these discounts are introduced. However the nefarious nature of this sale has gone to a new level. It looks like Ebay sellers are setting up new stores with over inflated items while at the same time selling the identical items in their standard ebay shops (that are not participating in the sale) for a lower price.

    For Example the Apple iPhone 6s Plus 5.5" 64GB Space Grey Smartphone with touch ID is advertised by phoneinc_digital for $1199 under this special.
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-iPhone-6s-Plus-5-5-Smartpho...

    The identical phone is being advertised by phoneinc_estore for $1099.
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brand-New-Apple-iPhone-6s-Plus-5-...

    As far I can can tell phoneinc_digital and phoneinc_estore are both owned by the same ebay entity. Why are the advertising one same product for $100 more on the store participating in this deal is obvious but to go to to this level to cover up price mark ups is new to me and only reinforces the common view that these sales are utter nonsense.

        OzBargain has nothing to do with ebay.. it's also against ozbargain rules to do exactly what you're saying - sock-puppeting.
        Check the votes tab
        All votes are recorded. If you're suspicious of any user - go to talk with a moderator forum and report them.

    • Our system along with moderators constantly audit the votes. For the month of December, we removed 32 deals for sockpuppeting along with banned accounts. OzBargain is a transparent and independent community and if you suspect that some dodgy voters then please let us know and we will investigate.

      Keeping in mind most of the these stores have never been posted to OzBargain (e.g. hongpengwangyingzhao, atalantavanessa, etc.) then it would most likely be new accounts voting or as you say they tell their friends. Looking at the 115 votes on this deal.

      • 0 account were created in 2017
      • 13 accounts were created in 2016 and of those all are active voters/commenters in many other deals.

      While there is no doubt these things could happen and do happen, it is a small minority and not a majority as you imply. Feel free to look through the votes tab and check out the users.
