JB Hi-Fi Fake Sale

Not that OzBargainers would do this anyway, but, if you see a sale at jb hi fi don't assume you're getting any savings! I was about to buy this and just thought I'd check prices elsewhere just in case. Was expecting maybe there to be some lower original prices but not lower than the sale price.

But I found it cheaper at, of all places, Harvey Norman!!! And not even "on sale"!

I looked at the page in Web archive to see if it was lower before the sale but there was only one capture, from September, and it was more expensive. Shame there was no capture just before the sale :(

    well that's a good way of price matching or price beat by the looks of it. Good luck!

    I do not care about their sale price, but I do found during their sales, it's easier for them to do a price beat/ better bundle.

    So it was more expensive before the sale ………….. what's the issue? JB Hi-Fi advertising it as on sale does not mean it won't be cheaper elsewhere.

      That was from September though, so not a close enough time. It was also during another "sale" so the price may have been inflated at that time also. No data for normal price.

        JB Hi-Fi Fake Sale

        No data for normal price.
        price may have been inflated

        So shouldn't your title be 'Suspected JB Hi-fi Fake Sale'?
        Because as of right now it's a Fake/false title.
        In all seriousness though, just shop wherever cheapest.

    Some shops are permanently on "sale". Others are "closing down" for years.

    It's up to each person to do their due diligence before buying instead of relying on those signs. In fact, they rely on people to not do their homework!

    I find this really interesting actually, originally I used to look at sales and see if theres anything interesting (usually not) but since using ozbargain the term "sales" means nothing to me anymore. My new price point is the lowest price thats appeared on Ozbargain, not a sale price any company puts out. EB Games also helps because they have constant sales, so much so it removed a lot of meaning of the word for me.

      Me too, in essence the Ozbargain price has become, for me, the "real" price. No longer look at any advertising at all.

      As an obvious point I must say - "Thanks to all deal posters". Without you this site would simply not work.

    Not hard to research:

    HN isn't showing on Price Hipster for that model, which could mean it's relatively new to them. It's only been at JB since early Oct

    Either way, it is a sale for JBs, but we should all price compare to other stores, it's just what we do…

    I could be wrong (I don't shop at HN often) but I thought the price in red indicated a sale price?

    There are some decent prices, especially on nikon P900 and D500 cameras in both stores.

    In both stores there are decent deals on the latest Nikon d3500 cameras, cheaper than most other stores.

    The two computers are not exactly the same model - HN's one is 4GB RAM whereas JB has only 2GB. Also JB's one mentions bluetooth but there's no mention of bluetooth in HN's one.
