          I'll go make sure they are reported too.

    What a stupidity, these fake 20% off sales just turned into free advertising for ebay stores. Oh wow (insert store name) will have a "sale"!

    Sale of what? LOL!

    They jack up prices and slap on the main pic of the product with the code for 20% off to apply at the checkout. Oh thank you, so generous of you. Stupidity

    •  

      prices are already up a bit all around because of the current 5% discount code.

      • +4 votes

        The current 5% discount code does not cost any seller anything extra from the usual and is fully covered by Ebay. If anything, we have discounted our headphones just recently.

        •  

          hey sm007h, can you do a special 20% off for us (or me) ;)

        •  

          It didn't stop a few sellers to price jack on a couple of items I was following.

    • +7 votes

      Let's see what happens. If they continue to jack up the prices before these ebay promotions, I think the mods need to do something about it.

      • +1 vote

        Is it just me or is it the same few shops which are in all of these sales (and yes I'm aware I use the word 'few' loosely here)? With that kind of regular inclusion in these deals, they may not need to keep readjusting prices… just leave it at the inflated one!

    •  

      Isn't the 20% is an agreement between the stores and eBay? Perhaps the store pay higher fees for these sales?
      Otherwise why didn't eBay make 20% for all stores?

      About suing, I think since the price is still below RRP, it won't get us anywhere.

      • +1 vote

        My friend told me that it's split between eBay and the store. They work for one of the retailers that normally do these 20% sales (but don't price jack - not a tech store).

        •  

          I thought so, perhaps it is why they jack the price by about 10%.
          If you look carefully they are still a bargain though

          @boohooimissout:

          Dont worry the future will bring manufacturers who sell direct to the public in the next 5 years cutting out all these middle men who take 30-40% cut for very little.

    • +1 vote

      Any baragains?

    • +1 vote

      I don't support what they're doing, but if keep up-voting the deals and buying stuff, surely eBay would be stupid not to keep doing it. They're in it for the money. As long as we're sheep, they'll keep herding us.

      Having said that, I think as long as people know it's not really '20% off' and compare prices properly, there are still some good deals to be had.

    •  

      put item in the morning and check out in the afternoon, price added 10% (The seller revised one or more of the listings in your cart. Please review the updated listings before proceeding.)

  •  

    I know this has been asked a million times - But can I say commit and buy the item a day or 2 before this goes live to lock in the pre-jack price and pay with the code once it's active?

    • +1 vote

      No, I've seen re-sellers change items to out of stock right before a sale to prevent this.

    • +2 votes

      I believe you can if the seller doesn't have "immediate payment required" on the item, but generally most of them do from what I can tell.

      •  

        Thanks.

        So how immediate is immediate? What's the timeframe? 24 hours? Within an hour? 30 mins?

        • +4 votes

          Immediate is straight away, you commit to buy and have to pay right then and there.

        •  

          @doweyy:

          So let's just say that I click buy now and exit out the page and not completing the transaction it will be recorded on my account saying that I didn't pay for item?

          That can't be right….

        •  

          @mg_k:

          Well you say "Commit To Buy" and I think if you cancel out of the page then it would probably strike your account or something, I'm not 100% sure, but it doesn't stay unpaid I don't think.

        •  

          @doweyy:

          I found this - https://www.ebay.com.au/help/selling/listings/creating-manag...

          I know this is written for seller, but it says -

          "Here's how it works:

          Fixed price: When you require immediate payment in a fixed price listing,
          the first person who selects Buy It Now and completes the PayPal transaction gets the item"

          Not exactly sure how this applies to a buyer. The question remains - just how immediate is immediate?

          Surely they can't leave you a bad mark if say you accidentally close your browser after hitting buy.

        • +4 votes

          @mg_k: In most cases you commit to buy and then can pay later. It's counted as sold but isn't shipped until payment is made. If you back out then you can have an unpaid payment strike against you if the seller is annoyed at you.
          With immediate payments, it will take you straight to the payment page so if you exit then it's not counted as committing to buy. So if you wanted to buy it now, it isn't counted as sold until you make payment, so you can't save it now and pay later.

        •  

          @mg_k: leave browser open for 3 days, pay for item at 10:01 day of sale

        •  

          @chumlol:

          lol does that actually work?

          Coz seriously I will do it if it does :P

      Agreed.

      20% storewide or gtfo!

      That's because its not a real 20% off sale.

      Yes. Especially as in previous years you could get a dead set bargain. But now you will find the price will match the market value after discount.

    What's with "Please remember, do not post any related deals in the sale until 12:01am on the 20th of February as per the guidelines.".

    • +5 votes

      Updated guidelines to stop people from posting deals early, as the deals page gets hammered with deals which may expire before posting.

      •  

        Is there a link to these guidelines?

        • +9 votes

          Explained by hamza23 here. Link to the guidelines.

    • +1 vote

      It gives sellers idea of what's going to be popular so that they can pricejack before it goes live.

      Not posting it beforehand = not giving them hint = less chance of pricejack.

    • +4 votes

      Its because those items will be pricejacked or conveniently 'out of stock' before the day the promotion goes live.

        • +3 votes

          @Brodenlt you new to this site?

    •  

      Also because in most cases deals posted leading up to the sale get price jacked just prior to it becoming active

  • +2 votes

    just interested to see if anything remotely useful actually gets a full 20% discount

    Can i buy now and pay later with code?

      No.

    So many complaints about these eBay sales, but I have spent so much more from eBay than any other store and by a large margin.
    Hate it or love it, it is still cheaper than buying retail.

    Search link

    Never seen eBay this lazy before, every single link to each store was dead =/ Had to manually look them all up. It's actually 48 stores since 2 stores repeat: 'PCMarket Computer Outlet & pcmarket-au' and 'Melbourne Electronic & melbourneelectronic'

    • +2 votes

      You're a real champ.

  •  

    Sale starts in 4 days now, which means plenty of time for the selected sellers to do what they do best, i.e. the usual.

  • +48 votes

    Because people have now started to complain about people pointing out the prices get raised for these sales, presumably because they're fans of deceptive sales tactics, here are five randomly chosen listings from these stores:

    I've saved another five random ones in the unlikely event all five stores either remove these items or see this post for the sale.

    It's been about 6 months since I've been able to find an actual deal from these 20% off sales and they happen every other day so I'm inclined to think there's shenanigans but I've never bothered to check before. This'll be interesting.

      The pixel will be jacked for shizzle

    •  

      wow cool website, didnt know you can do that (saving a snapshot of websites)…thanks

    •  

      Hi Don,
      The Hisense 55n7 at $958 - Videopro is obviously currently matching the GG and Bing Lee

      https://www.videopro.com.au/search.aspx?cx=00514174344173045...,
      Don't know how to achieve that - maybe you could add to your list?

      That'd be an AWESOME price!!!!

    •  

      There are some places that seem to have semi-permanent high prices, I guess with the expectation they mainly sell during these rare promotions.
      For example K.G.Electric has Philips Hue items at a strangely coincidental 20% above retail seemingly all the time (I know as I've been checking for these for the last month or so).
      Futu Online has the Logitech Harmony Elite for $355. Take 20% off that and you end up with the same regular prices as Harris Tech, Megabuy or Shopping Express.

      Curious indeed…

    •  

      mark to come back checking the price later

    •  

      so the TV price came down, is that a good thing?

      •  

        Down about $100, I was wondering what this means also…time will tell.

    • +1 vote

      Out of the 5, 1 is out of stock, 2 remained the same and 2 actually dropped in price. Sort of disproves the notion that everything is jacked up in price.

  •  

    It will be interesting to see if appliance central leave the 65N7 price unchanged.

    If they do it will be $1248 plus random postage.

    •  

      Shhhh was trying to keep this under wraps >.>

      But nah, it says weekend price. I'm still hoping for a $1300 65n7.

    •  

      Holy schnikes… price on this is now $2228.80…

  •  

    Looks like no more prod jacking woot!
