This might be the best price for the 128 gb version of samsung galaxy note 9
Mod: Price Error
What on earth!? I paid $1200 last week for 512Gb NOT dual sim. This has got to be a pricing error.
Edit: AU STOCK - $839 - https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/samsung-galaxy-note-9-512gb-mid... - and comes with free 20gb mobile plan.
Not AU Stock. It is imported by Kogan HK.
Ah mb- it says is comes with the 2 year Samsung warranty though? Thought it had to be au stock for that.
It definitely is AU stock and confirms 2 Year Warranty from Samsung as well…
Obligatory - no Samsung warranty, no Samsung Pay. Still, an amazing price.
Why no samsung warranty?
Not Australian stock (dual-sim).
@asa79: No they don't, I've tested this before on phones and tablets and NO way will Samsung Australia touch or service a device purchased overseas.
Don't compare Apple warranty to Samsung. Even there whilst Apple will warranty overseas models for 1 year, devices purchased under Australian consumer law do get repaired for free 2-3 years so an advantage there to buying local.
@xuqi: Have to second this. Unless things have changed, last time I was In at Samsung repair, a customer was getting irrate as they were refusing to fix their phone that was a grey import.
Note 9 from officeworks are dual Sim
@DraceSabin: Thanks, I wasn't aware they finally released dual-sim locally, however Kogan stock still clearly labelled 'direct import', won't receive any local support from Samsung.
The Australian stock is dual sim.
Not Australian stock (dual-sim).
Note 9 Australian version has dual sim.
Why no Samsung pay?
I see. Thanks for the prompt response
What about g-pay?
@Skinnerr: No idea about that as I've never used it
@xuqi: Not Australian stock (dual-sim).
Not always correct I bought direct from Samsung the 512 model with Dual Sim. ( and have used this feature OS)
Telcos only sold single sim. But mine is definitely AU stock
@Skinnerr: No restriction on Google Pay, which can work straight out of the box.
@Bargain Fighter: Thanks
This is not the reason! Because Samsung Pay service only offers/links local banks based on your phone ROM or origin. So if your phone is a Hongkong model, which is running a Hongkong ROM and the installed Samsung Pay HK service only supports cards issued by supported Hongkong financial institutions.
There is Dual Sim AU stock for buying outright version. I'm personally using one which was bought from Mobileciti. The Single Sim version is carrier-branded model, which is cheaper.
You can (easily) flash a XSA Australian ROM to have Samsung Pay working perfect fine.
@Bargain Fighter: Samsung s9 series and this phone has flashing ROM region restrictions. I had alot of discussions with other OzBargainers with their experiences and Samsung pay doesn't work despite flashing Australian ROM.
I hope this new information clarify the misinformation given.
@ChickenAdobo: This is wrong, i am using samsung pay on thailand rom with thl csc and its working fine without any issues on my note 9
@Bargain Fighter: I am using thailand firmware and Samsung pay is working with anz and citibank cards
@Bargain Fighter: You can’t flash to XSA. Carrier settings are locked.
Incorrect. They started introducing dual sim to AU phones. Note 9 is one of them. But not if you bought it with a phone plan because they obviously don't want you using other carriers.
I changed my dual-SIM Taiwan S8+ to the unlocked AU firmware, however I don't think it's possible to jump CSCs anymore
Changing csc is possible on at least s9, s9+ and note 9 without root or tripping knox counter
@randomrandom: I thought Samsung blocked PrinceComsy's Odin though?
@jAyKEbAb: The method has changed: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-9/how-to/guide-...
@jAyKEbAb: nop, Odin works fine. Changing CSC need Realterm.
Kogan is a grey importer. So you warranty is with Kogan, and these are "Hong Kong" versions - I have a TAB S2 from them. Never had an issue with the tablet, but just making sure purchasers are aware.
They are grey importers. But they also sell local stock items too.
I am not sure which this one is.
The 512GB model is local stock and still a decent buy for $839 (bought one of these instead):
That must be a pricing error
It is a coding bug on alot of products on kogan website
That appears to be the case. Someone activated a store discount, 40% off all in the Mobile category.
What the hell is going on with Kogan?
Someone mustve hacked the site lol
TAB S4 64GB Wifi for $521…
Price updated to $895 on checkout
Officeworks will pricebeat it to take it down to low 600s! With local warranty!!
they don't price match Kogan
The won't as the Kogan site clearly lists this as a 'direct import':
They've been price beating direct imports for months now. Where have you been?
The OW near my place outright refuse to even bother once you mention Kogan.
@xuqi: I guess it will depend who you talk to. I've had differing mileage myself.
In VIC there are no Bing Lee stores, and whenever I bring them up the staff will have never heard of them, and first need to investigate if they are grey importers.
Also get a free 20gb month sim with it too ;)
It was not free showed up 15$ so removed it and placed order for the phone
Ah fair enough, just going off the details on the page (i'd be taking a screenshot and seeing if they honour it) that is if they even honour the price for the phone…
I haven't checked any details yet. Pulled the trigger first and now going through the details LOL
Surely an error
Ill give it a punt
can you shipster
checked, shipster doesnt list kogan
Thanks Kogan. Just spent $1,500 and I haven't even got out of bed yet.
Mate 20 pro and note 9?
Yep. And the Huawei watch I can also claim via the redemption worth $300
Price fixed. :P
Not for the AU version…
Just got my order in, then refreshed and price back up, wonder if it will get cancelled.
ordered one, not sure whether they will honour it
Thanks for posting.
I just bought one. I can't justify the price for a new release phone that is $1200-2000.
First Samsung phone for me since the Galaxy S2 =).
Kogan has fixed all pricing. I hope they honour the prices for those that bought something.
What about before?
whats their previous history like on honouring errors?
They don't, buyers will receive refunds within a few days.
Probs will not honour it :( "Despite Our best efforts, on occasion it may be possible that a small number of the Products in Our range may be incorrectly priced on the Website. If We have made a mistake and a Product's correct price is higher than the price on the Website, We may either contact You before shipping to request whether You want to buy the Product at the correct price or cancel Your Order.

still 839$ for 512gb
edit: at checkout price jumps to 1399
Keep trying, did the same thing for me but it changed back after 3 add to carts
Party is over :(
Just so people are aware this is clearly a website error. Go to the link below, switch to the 512GB model then back to the 128GB and the price will go down to $639.
No way Kogan is going to honor that sale sorry.
850 posted for AU 512gb note 9, fricken bargain!
Why did it end so quick?
because of pricing error :(
Oh haha fair enough. Wonder if they will honor it. I know a flight company who had an error honored theirs.
They gonna lose so much money if they will honour it but I still hope that they do honour it. 🙏
I bought Note 9 128gb, Samsung S9 64gb and iPhone 8 64gb.
I think Kogan will not honour this as they will lose lot of money if they do and someone is definitely gonna lose his or her job for today's error on their website.
I have received my order confirmation, it says: 40% off on Our Trending Deals. So might be a flash sale. Good luck guys.
Its not - but that line in the email may come back and bite them on the ass - hopefully anyway as I got an iPhone order in before price went up!
I have got my mobile recharger voucher at an extra 40% off and charged a few mins ago, hope they will fulfill the phone as well.
Just drove to Office Works and the prices went back up! Lol.
Same. I was about to drive to OW after calling them to make sure they have stock and they can pricebeat kogan. Then I checked the price already went up just as I'm warming up my car.
Called officeworks to price match while the deal was still active, spoke to 2 employees who both said they wont pricematch kogan anymore
Same experience on the phone
It was only recently that they changed conditions to explicitly price match grey import. Have they gone back on that policy?
@fruxo: Seems like it
@fruxo: Just had a long debate with them over that - they said thats the policy - I said maybe but it doesn't say that in the terms - wouldn't budge
Lol wtf you should be nominated for Australian of the Year
was only ocean blue on sale?
There was no sale! Multiple products across the site had incorrect pricing, seemed like someone went to reduce pricing by 3% but instead they typed 33%.
They were 40% off though (not sure if error or not still)
Why didn't you post it? Ozbargain freeloader lol 0 posts
Great price missed it tho :(
Pricing error for sure. Prepare for mass cancellation of orders
