Fujitsu Aircon 2.5kW $568.00 after $150 Cashback from Fujitsu and $150 from EFTPOS Card @ Harvey Norman

1140

I was looking for a deal to buy an aircon, came across fujitsu 2.5kw reverse cycle air con.

Currently HN giving $150 eftpos card which you can use at any eftpos. I called the good guys but they didnt match it, went to TGG store @hoppers crossing and the guy said he can reduce the price to $750 but can't match HN price (so it comes $600 after fujitsu cashback). The [email protected] hoppers crossing didnt have it in stock. I paid the deposit, will get the unit in 3 weeks time, the rep gave me $150 eftpos card straight away which needs to be activated after 7 days of purchase.

This is part of Father's Day deals for 2018.

    QLD residents may still be eligible for a rebate for energy efficient goods (sorry I can't link the reference from last year)

    • +3 votes

      To be eligible for the rebate, appliances needed to be purchased by June 3, and applications submitted by July 3, within 30 days of purchase.

      unfortunately :)

    Why are there different models in the same kW range for Fujitsu? What's the difference between say the more expensive 3.5kW and cheaper 3.5kW - new vs old model for example?

  •  

    I'm looking at buying two of these units.

    Ebay has $800 -10% -2% CB - $150.

    Which is about $570

  •  

    Thanks OP. Also a 7.1Kw unit with $400 back https://www.harveynorman.com.au/fujitsu-7-1kw-reverse-cycle-....

    Need one for BR and one for main areas.

    •  

      Retravision has similar pricing for Fujitsu aircon.
      Instead of the EFTPOS card the unit price is discounted by a similar value.
      The discounts are not the same on all the units so best to compare.

    Does anyone know if they’ll negotiate on price with these deals if paying cash?

    •  

      …why would cash make any difference in this scenario?

      •  

        Saves them on credit card processing fees. They could also in theory do the dodge with the GST :D

      •  

        Because every time I buy from hardly normal in store I talk the price down… It’s a lot harder when using interest free finance…

        • +2 votes

          Whats with the negs on a valid question? I didnt make any assumptions, or post an incorrect fact.

          Regarding the card processing fees - recent reform has capped the cost to vendors(and thus the cost transferred to consumers) to 2% (and less for debit cards). So for a grand total of $10 of savings to HN on a purchase of this cost, I dont see you brokering a better deal by using cash over credit card.

      Yes, placed an order today and able to negotiate with local HN sales, who was able to bring the price down @ $750. (i.e., $450 net i will be paying, with $150 HN efpots card + $150 Fujitsu cardback)

      • +1 vote

        That's pretty good!! How did you get the price down further?

        •  

          I had a relationship with local HN and the sales guy who usually looks after me. Also not sure if I received better rates due to quantity i end up buying in one transaction (total 7 units including few for my mates)

        •  

          @nnsha1:

          Ah k, maybe in that case because you spend a bit there, and this time bought 7 you got discount. Did you tell them you wanted 7 before or after they gave that price?

        •  

          @placard:

          HN was able to offer the same discounted price for a single unit or multiple units (which i end up buying for).

  •  

    Whats the maximum length you can install the outdoor unit away from the head? I have a couple of bedrooms where installing the unit back to back would be quite unsightly and keen to install on a flat part of my roof. The downside, is the two units would be some distance apart. How big of an issue is this? If the length is long, i understand you need to top up the gas?

    •  

      Most units are fine to 20 metres but optimally efficient to 7. You will pay more - up to $50 per metre for extra pipe and refrigerant.

      •  

        Which is robbery as the paircoil for this size Ac is $100 for a role of 20m

    • +1 vote

      Installing back to back is less efficient. You need to exceed the minimum piping length to ensure the phase change happens correctly.

      •  

        What is the minimum pipe length?

        Also if I set the unit 'Cold' only, the phase change won't be affected, right?

        •  

          I think minimum length is 3 metres.

    Retravision have this model for $748 i wonder if they will price match?

    If you don't want to get Harvey Norman gift card then you can use Ebay 15% off coupon on the goodguys ebay store.

      It's not a HN gift card. It's an eftpos card. It's practically as good as cash.

      Used these guys 2 years ago for a back to back install for a 2.5kw unit in the bedroom. $400 total. Extra $100 if you want a new circuit. I thought they were efficient, did a good job and were the cheapest quote as well. Would use them again.

    Quick question. This or the 2.1 KW to cool a medium size bedroom?

    Also anyone know of a decent person to install one of these in Sydney?

    • +2 votes
    • +1 vote

      If the bedroom is reasonably well insulated you could get away with 2.1kW. Otherwise I'd go the 3.5kW.

      Installation you can DIY unless the pipe distance exceeds the length that can be run with the pre-charged refrigerant.

      •  

        It is insulated but takes alot of sunlight during summer. May be the 2.5KW then

    •  

      We've used Mitch Forsey of MJF Air Conditioning for a few installs. We've recommended him to friends and they've been happy too. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post phone numbers, but happy to share it via PM of interested.

    Good guys I think still has a deal running where they will take a similar amouny (in my case $150) off the cost of the install… I got it done that way before the HN deal came up. Price matched the AC unit down to $800 to save a bit on that too (they didn't want to go to $740 to match eBay at the time).

        • -1 vote

          ROFL, talk about overkill. We're talking about a 2.5kW split system here. Yes, you'll need a flaring tool if you don't have one already ($20 or less), and obviously whatever you personally require for the electrical side of things (again, it's a measly 2.5kW system, so a short run to an existing circuit would be more than adequate). As to nitrogen etc, you've got to be kidding.

    •  

      Good guys standard back to back install price (for this size AC) is $689.

  •  

    Thanks, ALso, you said cash back from fujitsu but all i see on the HN site is Bonus $150 Visa Card + Bonus $150 HN eftpos Gift Card?

  •  

    I think the Ebay deals are better…

    •  

      No way. Next cheapest is for this model is $868 eBay the Good guys minus 15% P15GUYS code = $737.8 minus 2% cashback = $723.05 minus $150 Fujitsu cashback = $573.05

      This is $868 - $150 Fujitsu Cashback - $150 HN cashback = $568.00

      $5.05 cheaper.

      •  

        Wrong

        https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/Fujitsu-ASTG09KMCA-2-5kW-C-3-2kW-H...

        $799 minus 10% minus 2% = $713 -$150

        = $563

        $5 cheaper on eBay.

        •  

          what 10% deal?

          I've had problems with that mob selling me something "New" which was really a refurb with much less warranty.

          I'd rather pay the extra $5 for all of Harvey Norman's flaws at least they will help with warranty with a local presence.

      How you manage to get additional bargain with $540? after all gift cards (i.e., Fujitsu & HN)?

      As @Peace Horse explained it will be @ $568 so just curious to understand how you managed to get extra bargain (i.e., $568 - $540 = $28???)

        My HN sales rep couldn't offer any Discount on top but hooked me up with a local installer who will pick it up for me and install it for $600 cash, so good deal all around, but interested to see if there is some extra thing that I missed.
