          @jasswolf: Can confirm. Doesn't seem to work on mobile for some reason. Filter disappears with any search. Need desktop.

          You can force it to desktop mode by the "classic site" link down the bottom.

      Your link isn't right. For next time, you don't just copy and paste what's given. They gave the eBay store names this time. You have to go through each store and find the eBay username. You probably only got like 10% of the sellers right in your link since you just copied/pasted the list without modifying anything

    • +6

      They are one of the ones that don't price jack when they are on these sales. Too bad they are missing.

    • +129

      wave! and thank you.

      We were approached to be involved, but because we do keep our prices down the extra fees make it not viable at the moment. Some of you may not realize, but the stores contribute most of the discount hence those involved regularly go with significantly higher prices on eBay so they can be part of these regular "sales". Still sometimes works out a little cheaper than a regular non eBay price but give the retailers a bit of a break, they are not price gouging as such, but it is a bit misleading I think which is why i am always clear about our policies.

      We are still working on how to get the balance right on eBay but do plan to be involved occasionally. Still mulling up raising prices on eBay, but prefer not too. Might look at factoring "free" freight in or something but still keeping prices reasonable once freights accounted for (we lose a lot on freight at the moment with a $15 flat shipping fee)

      As a matter of interest, be aware any apparent "price jacking" on GPUs is somewhat justified at the moment — huge shortages right now and we have increased our prices as well in response to the wholesale price. Some models can't be bought at any price. We have ordered in a couple of million $ of extra cards in the last week, due in over the next weeks and months, and pretty much now disties are out and will be for some time. If you are after bulk GPUs, don't leave it too long and don't expect much to be on offer during this deal

      ..regards, adam (GM)

      • +2

        Thanks Adam.

        Also, 'disties'?

        • +3

          Wholesale distributors.

        • +1

          Distributors

      • +5

        They are price gouging and it’s illegal to raise their prices and the claim they’re providing a 20% discount when they are not.

        • +16

          Correct, assuming you mean raise prices just before a deal and drop them back after. BUT its not illegal to keep your prices up on eBay all the time as you are then offering 20% off during these deals. I just personally find it a bit dodgy and something we don't do, and why we can't afford to be part of these deals very often.

        • +2

          @Computer Alliance: we’ve all seen prices raised as soon as deals start. They often have prices above rrp that are only competitive after the discount. Most of these stores are involved in these sales constantly.

      • any idea on when the 1070 strix are due in? weeks or months?

        • +5

          Hard to be sure. Probably some more in a couple of weeks, but at what price and how many don't know. We do still have a small number in stock, and more 1070TIs of other brands, MSI etc We are reserving some for our gtaming machine builds and retail customers, cryptominers buying in batches are on allocation.

          Of late I can tell you, each batch we buy in is costing more across all mid to high end cards and manufacturers see no end to the current shortage (when the cryptomining frenzy dies I expect!)

        • +6

          @Computer Alliance: Just wanted to say cheers for communicating with your customers, having sensible policies and being at least semi-transparent about your industry. You guys are great!

      • (we lose a lot on freight at the moment with a $15 flat shipping fee)

        Have to admit the $15 always came off as a bit steep. Thankfully you're often cheaper with that fee included.

        • They should just post their orders at Officeworks.
          Much cheaper than $15 even for a parcel box delivery.

          Or just contract it to Officeworks.

        • +1

          @phunkydude: Officeworks use Fastways. I'd choose Auspost over Fastways any day.

        • @Clear:

          auspost have been more terrible than usuaul since about october last year … Im getting a week to two weeks from something posted from twenty minutes drive away ( worst case being wifes birthday card that took 6 weeks and four trips to the dead letter centre even though the address was fine) .. although in comparison to fastways not attempting to deliver parcels to a business address with a full time receptionist and I'm in eye shot of the door to see if anyone is trying… neither have any cred with me at the moment..

      • +2

        Adam,

        Just wanted to add my voice to those thanking you for being so transparent regarding this. For what its worth, I ended up getting my video card from you guys- with the PICK5 code it was a better deal than the pricejacked listings in this deal.

      • +1

        Such a pity that upstream there is no problem w price jacking, so much so that they create an environment where retailers have little option but to actively price jack to take advantage of ebay's system design, (and ultimately survive, let alone compete).

        In this race to the bottom, the greatest innovation is that which confounds the consumer the most whilst maximising motivation to spend. The process is relentless, PR campaigns constantly adjusted to test people's buttons, and the relevant laws (and hide the jacking in the most effective way on the day).

        Oh how the dearth of corporate ideas bites long and hard into all the parties involved. So much for human innovation ;-) ebay, amazon, robots, AI, all we really achieve is gamificaton and weaponisation of what could be used for good. All in this greed-filled race to… what?

  • +7

    Inb4 blunt threats of reporting price jacking to ACCC

  • Hopefully someone is selling TG5 Olympus camera

    • +2

      Camera store australia has it for 629$ at the moment, so the code would bring it to about 500$.

      • Digidirect had it for $510 early december, I got my sister onto it

  • No luvyourphone?

    Sweet. Was wanting to buy a Elitedesk 800 for my ghetto gaming build.

    • +1

      Hey, I have also made the decision to build a pc. May I know what your build is?

      • +1

        Well, an Elitedesk 800 is a prebuilt HP workstation box. You can pick up 2nd hand/refurbished for a couple of hundred bucks (+/- depending on age/specs). Probably with an i5 in it a few generations old (still very capable). Add a GPU and you've got your "ghetto gaming build".
        Only concerns I would have would be space/airflow/heat in case and PSU capacity (all depending on GPU chosen)

    • +2

      Just built a ghetto gaming PC using the hp elitedesk 800 g1 sff and an msi 1050ti LP! It's an awesome set up for the price.

      • +1

        Nice! My plans exactly with the MSI 1050Ti. Which seller did you buy the PC from?

        • +1

          Bneacttrader on eBay, they had a 20% off code at the time.

        • +1

          @joungs: Just another question. What storage do you have for it since it came with a low capacity SSD? Does it have the extra power cables required for a dual storage setup? Cheers

        • +1

          @TheOneWhoKnocks: yeah only came with a 120gb SSD, i added a secondary 3.5inch harddrive. It comes with all the power cables you need but only two sata cables so either pinch it off the optical drive or get another one

        • +1

          @joungs: Was that HDD easy to mount? Just velcroed it I assume?

        • +1

          @TheOneWhoKnocks: yeah was easy just slots right in, hardest part was getting the graphics card in its a very tight fit

    Awesome, I need another rt-ac68u

    • Grr, shopping express has already gone from $220 to $250

      • ACCC Form?

  • Anyone bought from Dells eBay store? Postage times seem very long.

    • Once the order is processed, in my experience 24 hours, it seems to go through Dell's standard ordering system and come much faster than what it says on eBay. However, as always, YMMV.

    • I bought the Dell XPS Laptop in the last eBay sale just before Christmas and received the laptop on 5th of Jan. I was surprised at how quick I got it taking into account the Christmas and New Year season!

    • Bought the Inspiron AllinOne 7775 on 27/12. Got it 10/01.

  • +1

    Appears prices were pre-jacked (on the video card I am looking for at least).

    Sales history $220-$250, price revised last night, now $298.

    • +6

      You know what they say about prejacking. Prem……. Ok I will see myself out.

    • Apparently video card prices have been going up recently in general (thought it was more of a US issue because it was redditors complaining but maybe it affects us too)

      • +6

        This is true. Global shortage due to Cryptominers. Don't assume any price increases on GPUs have anything to do with this deal. We are increasing prices on SKUs every day at the moment and restricting sales because of shortages, pretty much all our competitors are doing the same. (we are not part of the 20% off this time BTW, am just commenting in defence of our competitors!)

    INNO3D GTX 1080ti for $954.40 delivered from mediaform computers (meh)
    Galaxy GTX 1070ti for $575.28 delivered from futugear (if they maintain their 10% discount at checkout, otherwise best price is $599).

    Summary: Ryzen price drop is in effect, B7 price is holding, GPUs are generally a non-starter right now, and holy shit do not look at RAM prices.
