    Are you sure? I just clicked the link and it says $89.
    Did you see this in a catalogue?

      Says Instore only

        Sometimes, the web site allows in store pickup and it will show instore price. That's why I asked if the info came from a catalogue. Sometimes, some deals are state based - although I'm not sure about Big W.

    Great price and great product. Best hair clipper I have used.

    •  

      How long have you had it?

      I agree it worked well for 12mths or so, but the battery in mine is kind of crappy now. It no longer even really operates without being plugged in, and even it is now sluggish.

      With infrequent use, not at all what would be expected from a lithium battery.

      •  

        This unit is awesome but I am also noticing it is running a bit sluggish and I've only had it for 8 or so months. Would almost be tempted to buy another one at this price. Fortunately it only takes all of 2 minutes to run over your head.

          Mine gets a bit sluggish so I drown it in trimmer lubricant and it works well. Would highly recommend. Shaves your head in no time but get something like this to lube it up : http://www.shavershop.com.au/shaver-guard/trimmer-guard-lubr...

          @judge39: Can this unit be charged through usb cable?? or do they have certain cable to charge??

        •  

          @kunho:
          That have their own powercable. No USB

      •  

        Same here.. It's an absolutely great unit, but the battery longevity is rubbish. Mine stopped working at all on battery about 6 months in (using while plugged in was fine, although annoying).
        Well within the warranty so I took it back and got a replacement one from Harvey Norman where I bought it.

        Ok maybe I got ahead of myself then! Its been about 4 months since I had and I ve used it less than 5 times. But to be honest if it works as a corded trimmer that's fine for my purposes.

    I brought one of these about a month a go. Awesome hair clippers, especially for those of us who have given up the fight against hair loss and have gone the crew cut! so much easier than a corded model, and the wide clipping blade is great.

    •  

      Can this unit be charged with a usb cable???

  • +2 votes

    I agree with the others. Great clippers. Wide blade makes it nice and quick to get the sides of the head short to match the middle haha.

  •  

    These are fantastic! Hubby uses them to give our 2 year old son a haircut too.

    Damn, just bought this last month. But then I wouldn't be looking as sharp for the past month if I waited for this deal.

    This looks great for a an ugly bald guy like myself. Thanks OP. Hope my store has stock

  •  

    Are the "guide combs" same as guards that people talk about with hair clippers?

    •  

      Yep.. They're a weird shape to match the blade, but the same thing (with numbering/length in mm written on them).

  • +1 vote

    These are great. I use it in the shower every couple of weeks to keep my bald pate bald.

    •  

      hi mate, can this unit be recharged through USB cable?

      •  

        No, it comes with a proprietary charger.

  •  

    I just went to the store and it scanned as $89 BIG W Canberra

    •  

      Me too.
      Need a receipt from poster maybe?

  •  

    Which store ?

    I just called few and all have price of $89

  •  

    How does this compare to Wahl Deluxe Groom Pro Gift Set $39.95

    •  

      It doesn't. The only similarity is that they both cut hair.

  •  

    Which store OP?

  •  

    Waverley Gardens, VIC still $89.

    I went out and bought one.
    Came home and cut my hair.
    Not sure why.
    Thanks Ozbargain!

    •  

      Can you please share the receipt?

      • +2 votes

        receipt or pic of my shaven head?

  •  

    None at Sunshine VIC, they checked out back for me too.

  •  

    Tried Bankstown, still scanning at $89, about 8 left though

    QV Melbourne store is showing half price. About 50 still on the shelf

  •  

    Thanks OP, been looking for something like this. Got one from Melbourne QV

  •  

    Lots at Garden City QLD, however, they are scanning at full price.

  •  

    Great clippers. I've been using mine for 18 months, twice a week, and recharging after every second cut. I haven't noticed any battery issues yet.

    My biggest problem with them is that they are 240V only. So I haven't been able to take them with me on my trips to the US and Japan. Return to Australia looking a bit feral.

  •  

    Checked a couple stores around Adelaide which are out of stock (Elizabeth and TTP) but sales tickets on the shelf still show full price. No 50% off signs.

  •  

    Love this thing. So rapid. Much good.

  •  

    Yep, must be store specific as scamming $89 as well ☚ī¸

  •  

    Can also confirm these are half price at the Melbourne QV store

  •  

    Tried Macquarie Park and was scanning up at $89 still. Even asked them to check at the service desk and same price came up. So yeah maybe store specific.

  •  

    Big W Southland still had them marked full price. I asked them to call QV, which they did, and matched it for me. Thanks OP!

  •  

    how is this compare to vs sasoon crew cut clipper?

    •  

      Tried Garden City and the city. Both full price.

    can you cut pubic hair with this?

  •  

    Full price of $89 at Big W Warnbro. Anyone find 50% off in WA?

  •  

    Nice, got one for my birthday a few months back, it's a great unit, I'm going to see if my local store has it and will by a 2nd!

  •  

    NSW - Blacktown, Merrylands, Winston Hills, Campsie all $89.95.

    :(

  •  

    Great clippers - but found the battery started dying at 6 months. At 12 months corded only
    If battery was better, I would recommend as 5 stars
    As corded clippers very good and they are still good value compared to others due to the wide blade. 4 stars out of 5

  •  

    Spoke to a manager at seaford big w in sa and they told me that the queen victoria store received 1 or 2k or surplus stock so they are the only one that have the sale, but they have been told to not offer a price match for them. Though they price matched mine as I was told to come down to the store on the phone and they didn't want to waste me time :)

  • +1 vote

    I was refused a price match in Bid W Waverley Gardens VIC. They confirmed that Big W QV VIC 50% off was an area manager's special, specific only to specific stores and would not price match. Alas, I picked one up from Big W QV on my way to the airport to pick up a friend. Heaps in stock.

  •  

    scanned full price at Wehterill Park and Hurstville.
    Anyone tried price match in any NSW stores?

  •  

    Thanks OP. The good lady just picked up a couple for me at QV Melb. She said there is still about 30 left on the shelves if anyone is still interested.
    Just hacked away at my hair a few days ago with an old set of blunt Aldi clippers I have, so really excited to be giving these bad boys a go.

      can they be charged through USB cable???

        No, not really possible from what I can see.

          thanks mate, i was just wondering if the charger was USB then I could carry it around

        •  

          @kunho:

          Sure would be handy, you might be onto a winning idea, Patent it :). Cheers.

  •  

    Still have a lot left at QV, just got myself one for that price. Thanks OP

  •  

    Looks like these are now back at their original price.

  •  

    Bought this today at QV Melbourne store for $44.50. Ticketed at full price but scans at half price.
