[Special Order] DJI Mavic 2 Zoom Drone $298 Pick up /+ Delivery @ Bunnings

6764

Update : I am getting THE Drone and many more ozb mates.

Thanks Bunnings for making all of us SUPER HAPPY

—————-

Shhhhh.. 🤫 …. Enjoy :)

Note : Check your PICKUP LOCATION or You may End up travelling to another state.

Or You can get it for $1999 @ JB Hi-Fi or HN if that is nearby ;-)

The Mavic 2 Zoom from DJI is a professional quality film making drone that gives you the ability to get closer to the action, thanks to its 2x 24-48mm optical zoom camera with a 1/2.3" 12MP sensor. With 4x lossless zoom (including 2x optical zoom) you can capture sensitive subjects from an even greater distance. There's even a single-tap aerial mode called Dolly Zoom that gives a Hitchcockian effect to your footage.

The Mavic 2 Zoom utilizes a low-drag aerodynamic body design for achieving speeds up to 47.7 mph, a four-cell LiPo battery for up to 31 minutes of flight time, and low-noise propellers for filming without being distracting. This power and performance are coupled with a variety of shooting modes and capabilities for cinematic results.

In order to help keep the Mavic 2 Zoom safe and in control, DJI has provided OcuSync 2.0 video transmission technology that can transmit a video feed to the included controller from up to 5 miles away in Full HD 1080p quality. There's also omnidirectional obstacle sensing that provides object avoidance with sensors on all sides of the Mavic 2 Zoom.

12MP 1/2.3" CMOS Sensor
2x 24-48mm Optical Zoom + Dolly Zoom

    As the person who investigated how this happened, it was a miss type by a intern….. Although I can confirm from my Boss that 82 units (roughly per state) where given out and the rest cancelled. Also stores where order to have a printed apology explaining the situation as we received nearly 50k orders.

    • +13

      GG that intern…

    • +2

      Gotta feel for that intern. I'd have to imagine they'll probably not be interning too much longer. A busy week for Bunnings! Thanks for the update

    • +5

      May I ask what happened with the intern?

      • +24

        They still have a job. It's not the first time this has happened. This happened a few months a go with the storage containers, and it's was done by an employee. It's all accidental and actions are being put in place to prevent it.

        • +12

          Good to know, and thanks for the response. I can only imagine what the poor bugger is going through.

        • +6

          Glad to hear that he has the job and If possible, convey our message to him … Not to take any stress with this situation.. We all Ozbargainers here for him for any possible support..

          • +1

            @Being Askhole: Oh please, if you genuinely cared about any Bunnings employee, you wouldn't have taken advantage of this deal or encouraged others to do the exact same.

          • @Being Askhole: What happened to [Price Error] too..

        • Good to hear that and bunnings must be setting an example of being amazing employer. Let him know that don’t get stress and mistake makes the master in world ! All support to that guy !

          • @JustNotGod: Why fire them? Bunnings just spent a pile of cash training them not to make that mistake again.

        • Doesn’t the system throw up an alert if the new price kills GP? If not, sounds like a feature request for an exception report at the very least.

        • +1

          I saw a great quote about a guy who made a two million dollar error for his company. His boss was quoted as saying "Fire you? Why the (profanity) would i fire you? I just spent two million dollars training you!"

          Make sure you paraphrase that quote to the Intern:)

      • +2

        A few years ago, a junior employee at a large energy and utility company, accidentally caused an outage for their online portal, soon after going live and caused some serious damage ($+reputation), still keeps his job. Nothing new, I guess, if it is a genuine rookie mistake for most employers! Curious to know about Bunnings though.

    • +1

      Ooh, are you really the person who investigated?

      Can I be the first to ree about being a “good guy” who didn’t try to take advantage of Bunnings and yet I get nothing whilst everyone else gets rewarded… j/k if I had the money spare I would have also taken advantage :P
      Kudos to Bunnings for fixing their mistake in an epic fashion.

    • +9

      If people are wondering why gift cards where given out, we did question it for a bit. But due to some ACCC laws and the time the post remained up we thought it would be best to compensate for the mistake in pricing

      • +3

        Pretty impressed on how Bunnings handle this price error.

        Pass our thanks to the team and hope this help them with more customer loyalty

        • +3

          Its a customer relationship marketing move to hopefully boost traction of MarketLink (Bunnings' Amazon Competitor)

      • +6

        Did the intern do $250 instead of $25? :P

    • +3

      Hope the $250 wasn't posted by the same intern

    • +8

      I feel sorry for intern.. I am happy to return my Drone to keep that guy out of any trouble for this error.

    • +1

      is that intern an Ozbargainer?

      • +9

        Hmmmm.. maybe it was just a huge master plan for a great deal 🤔😄

    • +5

      If you guys would be interested in me doing a AMA let me know.

      • +2

        If I ordered in store over the phone, should I expect an email or call soon with a gift card?

        Edit :AMA would be interesting

        • Keen to hear what's going on with in store over the phone orders too

        • +2

          I would call customer support and not the store. Explain to customer support that because of the price error you where supposed to be compensated with the gift card but nobody has contacted you.

          If you ordered over the phone with a local store or in a local store. Give this a try because most stores won't know about the gift card.

          • @DisabledUser217644: So there's no chance of us getting the drone now? Even if we were first people to order

            • @Thunder-Wombat: Actually I'm not to sure about that. Because of how the ordering system works. You could try calling up the store and seeing if you can get an ETA of when it would be in store.

              Every store nationally was told about the pricing error.

              • @DisabledUser217644: How does the ordering system work then? I mean if you called up and ordered over the phone, got a receipt and got charged just wondering if those people were ever in the system for dispatches or not, does that go over to the central database?

                Just asking because local stores are saying they don't know, and head office is dealing with it all.

                • +1

                  @cacique: When a customer orders online, it gets sent to the closest store to the customer.

                  When ordering over the phone/in store it's the same way except the team member is doing it for you.

                  Though online orders have a special Purchase order number and customer order number (starting with W). Online order questions, queries and adjustments are normally dealt with by the customer service team.

                  When a order is placed, no matter how, a purchased order is generated. But it's generated by taking away a figure from the retail price (to order it at suppliers selling price). If we order it at wrong suppliers price it is normal red flagged by them and sometimes cancelled.

                  If you can get your local special orders to call the supplier and get an ETA for your order. It's most likely coming otherwise the team member will tell you it's not. Stores where not informed about the gift cards being given out, so don't expect them to know, just tell them to leave your cos open and give calling customer support a try.

                  • @DisabledUser217644: So pretty much we should of been called by an employee if our order wasn't going to be fulfilled?

                  • +1

                    @DisabledUser217644: Thanks for the reply and explanation!

                    The store did seem to just be directing me to head office when I called earlier today however

                  • -1
                  • @DisabledUser217644: I've made 2 orders, one as a guest which as soon as I click pay, the screen froze, and the rotating thing went on and on… another I did it via mobile and I had registered and signed in.. that too the screen froze with the rotating disc..

                    For both orders I used the same mobile and email address..

                    I checked my Debit account and both charges has been deducted from my account balance, and listed as "PENDING" in my account

                    I received an email yesterday and the $250 voucher, which I think it's very generous in Bunnings part..

                    I am unsure what will happen to the first order that I checked out as a guest? Im unsure if the email received was from the first checkout as a guest or the one I registered?

                    Should I call or merely wait, as I do not want to flood the call centre?

                    I checked the order details in Bunnings website and I had the order ID which starts with W100…

                    any advice?

                    I've been checking my email and my spam folder like a maniac all the time, me Mrs think I'm nuts :))

      • Definitely, but as you're both an OzB local and in the marketlink team how about an AMA when it opens?

        Better yet, keep that intern on to leak some epic time boxed OzB community deals for huge cudos at launch (and recoup the gift vouchers off the liability sheet)

        I'm surprised there isn't a landing page with pre registration ahead of launch actually? I searched and found nada but news

        • +1

          That sounds like a good idea, I'll do one when it launches. It will also be interesting because im not a believer in the product I'm building.

          Bunnings is going about Marketlink in the wrong way imo, they are focusing to much on the supplier side. Considering also that eBay, Amazon and AliExpress are already in this market, I don't see this going well.

          But hey I'm just the guy who builds the software so what do I know.

          • +1

            @DisabledUser217644: I thought the UK launch experience might have taught a few lessons. Now they have to compete globally for customer loyalty.

            Empty shelves won't go well at launch so I see why they are supplier focused. But the field of dreams 'build it and they will come' approach is a big risk. Maybe they have a massive marketing war chest? It's a very corporate way to do this, so I understand how you'd feel about it.

            Keen to learn more about dev life on the inside in the AMA.

          • +1

            @DisabledUser217644:

            As the person who investigated how this happened

            and then

            I'm not a believer in the product I'm building

            Haven't you just bad-mouthed the product AND told Bunnings who you are?

            • +2

              @pjetson: I have already voiced my doubts inside the business.

          • @DisabledUser217644: I like the idea of a site I can go to, pick an item I want and list the price i'm willing to pay. Then let vendors come to me if they can meet my price.

            Vendors would be able to see all the potential orders for an item and learn that X orders would trigger at price A, or Y orders would trigger at price B. They make decisions accordingly and when a deal meets my specification I get an alert. Sort of a reverse GroupOn.

          • +1

            @DisabledUser217644: so as the guy that does software,
            how about an option to select a 'gift recept.
            So, either at the start or end of the normal receipt, make a section also print out a 'Gift' Receipt,
            so when we give something as a present, we can provide the 'gift receipt' portion to the recipient.
            Even if this isn't your area, perhaps you could forward this as an idea up the chain.

    • +3

      TA has set up a poll to see what people's outcomes where after the price error https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/490475
      Please vote if you have time, I would love to know the results.

    • I don’t think the 82 per state is correct,I ordered from WA early and with the time difference around 4.40 am I don’t think many would be up and I missed out . Probably like most companies WA is too hard so I bet we missed out on an allocation

      • +1

        i ordered @ 4.30am WA time.. still miss out and only got $250 GC.. but im happy with the outcome… but I Agree wuth previous comment.. I dont think anybody from WA got it

        • +1

          Ordered 4:30-5:00am Perth time and got $250 voucher.

      • I wast old about 80 total were fulfilled.

    • Are you saying that a a total of over $12m was given out in gift cards ($250 pp x 50k orders)? Surely that can't be right…

    • +2

      Hi Dealinator - The method in which the item was removed from the Bunnings online store has killed the online cart for me, maybe affecting others.

      I can't view it or add items if I am logged in, just get the spinning wheel.

      The request is failing (/api/storefront/v4/cart)

      {"Success":false,"StatusCode":"710","StatusMessage":"Error occurred while getting current cart.","Data":null}

      • +1

        Can you open your conversations (or send me a PM).

        • No problem, have sent you a PM with a screen recording showing console errors.

    • Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that 50k orders went through in that time…? Unless some people ordered hundreds if not thousands…

    • way to go bunnings for the way to handle an error. amazing customer service.

  • +3

    whaaaaat? has to be a price error

    • +13

      Going to be a lot of popcorn today watching this one pan out…

      • got my popcorn chicken ready!

        • +1

          Not sure about the popcorn but now I can even get a whole BBQ with my $250 gift card

          • +1

            @pentole: Yep, new BBQ for me also! I ordered at 7:40am and got the gift card, I will be interested if any non lurkers will actually get a drone. Fingers crossed!

    • +1

      Of course a pricing error.

      Needs to be a PSA for people not to call or email when there is a pricing error.

      Best chance is to just hope the order gets auto filled with no meaningful oversight and the error slips

    • +7

      So I called on their 1800 asking to check if there is any stock at my local bunnings. The lady straight away said, “you won’t be able to find any stock anywhere in Australia, this item has been removed due to an error made (pricing) on the website which led to system crash. All those who managed to order, their orders are being cancelled and full refund will be made”

      Amen.

      Thank you for your call. Have a nice day.

      • +1

        🙏

    • I have 5 demands:

      1. The listing be removed (Achieved)
      2. The person responsible for the price error step down.
      3. Acknowledge Bunnings brutality.
      4. For the Drones that have been purchased to be released
      5. And greater online price error freedoms

        Not cool bro, someone has made a genuine mistake. No need to take their job and livelihood so you can feel better about having a drone.

  • +3

    Bought one. See what happens. Thanks OP.

    • +1

      same. I hardly doubt we will get it.but in any case… thanks OP!

    • Did the drone end up being honoured or did you get a gift card?

  • +8

    Surely this has to be a pricing error? But thanks!

    Delivery is the way to go. Just $10 to Melb. Not expecting it to be honoured, but fingers crossed this comes through.

  • +1

    Can't see this one getting out of the gates. Will be interesting to see what they do - this is the first time I've ever bought something from Bunnings online.

  • +2

    Thanks OP. Fully expecting to be refunded, but on the off chance it gets filled, bargain of the year! :)

    • +3

      I thought this would be bargain of the lifetime!

  • Didn’t even realise Bunnings had an online store. Never purchased from there before but gave it a go, let’s see if they honour it! Bargain if so.

  • +1

    Best to Goto store right now but only seems to be avail in melbs?

    Ordered 1 for delivery any higher qty would raise suspicion…

    • +1

      It says "Expect your entire order to be available for pickup within 4-7 working days"

      • Yep, none in stock in stores I've ever been to and I'm in themv every day. Ordered 3 anyway :p

        • +1

          why dont they get a drone to fly it out to me !?!????

  • +9

    With a 5km range, perhaps Bunnings could use these to home deliver a sausage in bread :)

  • +1

    Ordered.. Like you all, let's see what happens!

    Ordered see what happens

    Took a while to order as I was running between train platforms

    • Hope you kept an eye out for passing trains

    In for the ride

  • Bought 2. Thanks!

    $1999 at Harvey Norman https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https:/...

    • We should go to Hardly Normal and ask them to price match.

  • +9

    Interesting note on the Bunnings order:

    *Please note, product & pricing is correct at time of purchase.

  • Website is slow as, hope it's not going to be as slow as this when they start selling their whole range online from next month.

  • Ordered! Fingers crossed!

  • Thanks for sharing. Order 1 now

  • +2

    Poor Bunnings IT guy getting fired over this…….

    • Won't be the IT guy.. Maybe then online manager or merchandise planning team

    • +8

      People don't actually get fired over these sort of mistakes and it wouldn't be an IT guy responsible, more likely a merchandise planner/buyer.

      • +2

        its entirely plausible that it was a deliberate error to stress test the website or generate a bunch of traffic.

        • Sadly it wasn't but just more evidence to show my bosses how bad our digital infrastructure is.

          • @DisabledUser217644: What's your tech stack? Are you trying to push for a revamp to something different?

            • @kiitos: I can't really/don't want to say because I can be identified pretty easily because of what I've already said and it can be viewed as security risk by higher up.

              But as an example, team members in stores use web apps and they all force the use of internet explorer. Compared to a chromium based browser, the Java and rendering engine of explorer are well past their time.

  • Ordered, lets see what happens.

  • Ordered as well, except the Bunnings site put me down for pickup in Mentone VIC when I'm actually in Northern NSW and I didn't realise until it was too late :-(

    • +12

      Still cheap if you book return flight to Vic :D

      • Haha true that!

  • Ordered, lets see what happens now!!

  • Dang, wish I had the spare money to order. I doubt anyone will actually get one but hope everyone does.

    • +2

      Credit card is your friend

      • Unfortunately credit card companies don’t like disabled people even when they have a very good credit history.

        • That sucks.
          I thought that would be discrimination?

          Last time I filled out an application all they asked for was proof of income and length at employer.
          Never was asked about disability status.

    • PayPal? Even if my bank balance is low and I use PayPal, I don’t get a debit attempt until later

  • +2

    According to Bunnings:
    $298
    Price correct as at Thu 17 Oct 2019 7:31:12am

    Took a screenshot

    • +7

      Any price is correct at some point in time til it is an error.

  • "Price correct as at Thu 17 Oct 2019 7:39:58am"

    Let's hope it stays that way, thanks OP

    • I know right. Fingers crossed haha

  • Price too good to not give it a go ;)

  • Don't normally jump on these but let's see what happens with a Bunnings one!

  • Not expecting it but worth a try….

  • Price match elsewhere?

  • Ordered. Let's see what happens :)

  • Let's see what happens. Pretty sure of the price error.

    • Almost certain the price will change to $1999 soon :)

  • +1

    Orders cancelled in 3…..2…..1….

  • According to their T&Cs:

    Orders
    All accepted orders supersede all previous quotes/estimates. We will be bound to supply you the Goods once payment has been processed and we have sent you an email order confirmation

    Just waiting for the email order confirmation and we’re set…..

    But they also reserve the right to cancel if it’s a genuine pricing error. Damn it.

  • +3

    100% Cancellation :(

    (iv) there has been a genuine pricing or product description error by Bunnings or its supplier. We will refund any amount already paid in respect of any cancelled order (and in the case of part cancellation of an order, we will refund the the amount paid that relates to the cancelled portion of the order).

  • +1

    Deal of the century if this goes through! Fingers crossed. Thanks op either way!!

  • We'll email you when your order is ready for pick up

    Im doubtful… but hey ….

  • Ordered for pick up at my local store (4-7 working day). Let’s see what happens.

  • +9

    Worth buying just to be part of the controversy

  • Ordered, but not sure what will happen.

    • +3

      Everybody knows

  • +9

    OzBargain will make Bunnings regret the day they decided to make shopping online available

  • +2

    I wonder if stuff like this would be vaild for price protection on cards like 28degrees.

    Like, some lucky soul bought this drone a couple months ago with the card. Could they screenshot this and claim back $1000?

  • +20

    I never knew I needed one of these until this morning.
