Thanks to grumps, for all invalid claims please call 1800 308 388 and explain your situation. They should escalate the claim.

Greetings everyone, a friend of mine found this great deal last night in the first choice catalogue.

Purchase 2 Cases of Heineken or Heineken 3 beer in one transaction from First Choice Liquor or Vintage Cellars and get the newly released UE Megaboom 3!

When you add up the cost of the cases, the cheapest current deal you can seem to get Heineken 3 Cases are from Dan's for $39.90 each which you can then price match at First Choice, netting $79.80 in total and $179.80 for the whole bundle which is a great price for the speaker itself.

Heineken cases currently seem to be around $44.95 each at most stores. Please make sure you check around and price match at First Choice before you buy!!

Closing date to purchase the beer is 15/11/18 and closing date for entering the submission is 22/11/18.

There are 7,590 speakers available for purchase in the promotion.

There is a $1.50 admin fee mentioned in the FAQ:

How much do I pay for delivery?
The $100 (plus $1.50 admin fee) offer includes delivery by mail.


As always, enjoy!

    FYI I called and confirmed it includes ANY Heineken cases bought from First choice or Vintage Cellars so 500ml cans are included. They weren't too happy about it though as they're imported by another company not Lion Nathan so they won't make anything out of it but their terms & conditions aren't specific enough so they don't have a choice and have to allow it.

  •  

    I ordered online but only had the "Order Receipt" email you get after ordering online. I used that email to complete my claim.

    I hope it will be enough because first choice finally just sent me my invoice (7 hours after I ordered). Hopefully they don't invalidate my claim because I didn't have the invoice.

      I did the same and it should be good as the form ask for a Receipt and not Invoice but it honestly it worries me too.

      •  

        submit both and maybe you get two?

        •  

          Can't submit twice to an address.

    Sonnavuh. I bought the speakers for $230 and I thought I did well…

    Now for $180 + two slabs of free beer? FAAARK.

      Buy this and it's now $205 per speaker with free booze.

    •  

      Where can you buy the speaker for $230

      •  

        From Myer when it had an eBay sale.

    So, are we sure that we can use a receipt multiple times (with different addresses)? I kinda want two of them for that sweet stereo playback.

    •  

      Pretty sure that would be against T&C's

  •  

    Have done it…hope it works online purchases…did say "on display"

  •  

    2x Heineken or Heineken 3 Cases

    so i have to buy two wither one ,is it?

    • +1 vote

      You can buy one of each if you wish

  •  

    can i purchase from Liquor Market (re-branded first choice) and qualify for this?

    •  

      Sure hope so, I did.

    •  

      Did they have the promotional material on display in the store?

      •  

        Oh yeah, there was a huge poster.. Forgot that!

    •  

      Yeah they had the promo in their catalogue… hopefully there are still speakers available cos heineken is not that good :o
      I notice they have re-branded the re-brand…. its now called First Choice Liquor Market…. It was initially re-branded as just Liquor Market.

  •  

    Has anyone had their receipt verified yet and been able to proceed to purchasing the speaker? I have received the email saying they received the submission but nothing else yet…..yes i know it says takes up to 10 days :-)

      Nothing here.

    •  

      10 days to verify receipt. After that, buy Speaker if Verified. Wait a further 4 weeks or so for delivery.

    •  

      Nothing here as of writing - 7th Oct.

    Bought the 2 slabs just because I love Heineken, don't require the speaker. Here's my receipt guys. Good luck.

      legitimately there could be some people who wouldn't wanna spend $100 on a speaker but gladly spend it on beer so it's completely possible some people clicked this deal looking for a cheap price on beer and had no interest in a speaker who would be kind enough to upload a receipt for those of us who have no interest in beer and just want the speaker…

      • +3 votes

        But posting it in the comments is not overly helpful. It'd be the first to submit it that'd get the speaker, and dozens of disappointed hopefuls finding out two weeks later, and possibly Heineken cancelling even the first submission.

        It was a good gag, nonetheless. :)

        • +1 vote

          I knew something was up when he said he loved Heineken, I've been trying to sell the slabs to mates for $35 each and they have no interest.

          •  

            @yacman: Haha you got me there, ill save the Heineken till the speaker arrives. Then I'll throw a party.

    Is there a running total of available units online like the Bose and Sonos offers?

  •  

    Great deal. Discounted beer with your Bluetooth speaker.

  •  

    Postage is free with Vintage Cellars when over $50, First Choice is free over $150. $1 more per case with Vintage but still save $5 overall.
    EDIT: Must be a typo on their homepage, still charging $6.95

  •  

    Anyone here been verified?

    •  

      Still nothing here.

        still waiting too

            @hothed: I submitted on the 03/10/18 at about 3:00pm… still no reply…

    •  

      I'm in the queue.. waiting…. 🤞

  •  

    Hypothetically, can you buy the Heineken, submit the claim using the receipt and then return the Heineken the next day and swap it for a good beer?

      Probably all vouched for by now. Would only buy now if planning to drink it, so not disappointed if you miss out.

      •  

        Thanks for the heads up. I bought it yesterday and uploaded right away so fingers crossed I made it in…

        •  

          Hopefully, but since none of us have heard anything yet it might be a while before you find out.

      Wow lucky you. I got mine 2 for $92 last week at First Choice

      •  

        To be clear that was Heineken 3 - the mid strength.

  •  

    Only just submitted mine today. Hope not all speakers are accounted for yet. I entered a similar promo a year of so back with Penfolds or was it peppertree shiraz, and you got a cheaper Bose Soundlink ( My kids commandeered them )

    •  

      7,590 Speakers available according to OP, so we’re looking at over 15,000 cases. Any delays work to the promoter’s advantage, and might limit anyone gaming the system. If they’re legit, good chance we will get at least one each.

    •  

      If you check out the OPs header at the top it shows: secure.promosite.com.au (5790 clicks)- this was the number of clicks to the claim site as at 1:45pm Saturday.
      So assuming each of those clicks have resulted in a claim being submitted I guessing that there will be 1,800 Speakers left to allocate to new claims.

    •  

      When I bought my two cases at FC (in ACT for $46 ea), I was given a promotional flyer for this which states:-
      "…while stocks last" as per the T&C.

      However it also states:- "*HURRY, ONLY WHILE STOCKS OF GUIDE TO ENTRY FORMS LAST." ??!!
      I presume the Guide to Entry Form is their name for the flyer. So I'm going to keep it as proof that I am entitled to receive the offer.

    Only just saw a email from First Choice Liquor which contains a welcome voucher that gives you $10 off when you spend $50 or more on your next online purchase.

    Im running avast and its blocking the site telling me its URL:phishing

  •  

    I had a look at some YouTube reviews of this speaker and gotta say I am not that impressed with the sound. I have a Sony XB30 that I got for just over $100 and was thinking this would be an upgrade, but now I am not so sure? Anyone have both and can comment?

    •  

      How can you judge the sound from a YouTube video? I'm just imagining you watching YouTube on your $5 Kmart speakers going "lol these megaboom things sound terrible!"

      •  

        Good question, and I'll give you a good answer. Some reviewers use high quality binaural microphones to record the speakers, so the recordings are very accurate, especially if you listen on good quality headphones, which I do. I have tested speakers in store myself after listening to Oluv's reviews, aka clavinetjunkie and we must have very similar taste in sound as his reviews match my thoughts almost exactly. He also has a "switcher" database that allows you to compare any of the hundreds of speakers he has tested.
        If you are buying a bluetooth speaker, you would do well to check out his reviews. Other good reviewers are Jim'sReviewRoom and DLX Willington.

  •  

    Just an update. I ordered online on 3/10/18 and sent my receipt. They have NOW responded. They said my receipt is not valid. What the.

  •  

    My claim got knocked back. Trying again now that i have received the beer and a physical invoice.

    •  

      Same. What did you send them on the first go? What the duck do they want to see as proof? A photo of me holding 2 cases of their beer?

      •  

        My email receipt from FC. Hoping the new tax invoice helps, they've asked for a few more details on the form this time.

        •  

          I did the same. With all the numbers they give you on order, invoice, etc., which one do they want when they say Receipt Number? Asking so they don't say it is invalid again. Duck this I will do the dodgy thing and return this stupid beer when it's over.

          •  

            @savemesomemoney: I put in the invoice number.

            •  

              @Leuke: Where did you get the invoice number from? I've only got an order receipt.

              •  

                @tonydav: When the order arrived it had a tax invoice with it.

  •  

    I also got invalid claim email & got to do it again
    Noticed that this time they ask for the receipt number.

  •  

    This is (profanity) bullshit. Just got my claim denied. I knew I shouldn't have voted beforehand. +ve revoked.

  •  

    Just got an email but apparently my claim is invalid. In my application I had uploaded a copy of the receipt email I received from First Choice. Anyone have any luck?

    •  

      I'm in the same boat. Also got denied!

  •  

    I uploaded both email receipt & pdf invoice when it got shipped but still got rejected email for both
    Interesting!

    Very frustrating as like a lot of others got the "invalid claim" bs. I called and they're advising a "glitch" and to send details through.
