Salesperson at my local JB showed me this today, I believe I have all the correct details

Can be an existing customer, just has to be a new service

Update 24 Oct 9:40am: Judging by this comment, the deal was changed around 8am this morning to require the purchase of a device. Deal expiry set to 8am.

    At my local now getting it. It's been changed as of an hour ago. Must have seen OzBargain. Has to be purchased with an iPad

  •  

    Gone to jbhi it got pulled neg time

    •  

      Neg time?

      • +1 vote

        He means, time to negate the deal

        •  

          He means what he said obviously - nap time

  •  

    Not sure if it would help, but maybe we could all wait until the end of the day to cancel our 'plans'.

    If Telstra has a bunch of customers cancelling at the same time they might tell jb hi fi to pull the deal.

    Negative. Was told in store it had to be attached to a device purchase

      Mission failed, we'll get em next time.

    •  

      A device purchase as in you have to purchase a device four right through JB?

      •  

        Mentioned it had to be an ipad

    •  

      I wonder if it’s up to the discretion of the JB staff or the people above getting it got lucky or it just has to be attached to a device and the OP’s post was I correct.

      •  

        Prob they saw the ozbargain post

  •  

    Shouldn't it take a few hours for this deal to get closed? You'd think they won't realise until Telstra start getting people cancelling their new account's they just entered, or tomorrow morning as I doubt JB's accountants/managers are constantly looking at live data - probably a daily report.

    EDIT - disregard after seeing people's replies.

  •  

    Yep needs to get an iPad with the plan. They told that people (ozbargain ers?) were abusing this and canceling before the first month.

      Those damn internet professionals ruin everything!

      People are doing the same with the pixel offer too. No consistency from JB

      •  

        what was the pixel offer?

        • +1 vote

          It has been posted. $199 for phone, $500 gift card and you can cancel immediately but there is an early termination fee.

            @mokr:

            The loophole got closed

            Did it actually?

    •  

      It's time for a street protest.

      •  

        Yeah let's do it Hong Kong style

  •  

    With any ipad. Still OK deal if u can sell off the ipad. Can earn but not the 300 exact

    I told you guys 10 hours ago this was too good to be true.

    Can't you buy the iPad then return it?

    •  

      I think with these deals, if you return the iPad you also have to return the gift card? I'm. Not 100% sure tho

      • +3 votes

        What if you return the gift card, with 0 balance…

      • +1 vote

        Wouldn't it just say on the receipt 'gift card'?

  •  

    Roseland nsw is aware, lame

  •  

    Went to in Wollongong store before class and was told the plan was removed unless you bundle it with a phone

  •  

    Just call JB Hi-Fi Roselands. customer service representative told me that it requires an iPad but we can still do the minimum plan so he said it would be like 50 bucks a month with an iPad and the gift card I suggest you could probably just sell the iPad if you wanted to.

    •  

      Could you just return the iPad?

  • +2 votes

    the iPad is separated from the plan? as JBHIFi has a return of policy for 30 days if package not open

  •  

    Good deal if your after an iPad. The cheapest is $529.

  •  

    It no longer works. Compulsory to attach an iPad to the plan.

  •  

    Damn missed out $225 bucks

  •  

    The guy at my local showed the yammer memo, outlining that they had seen increased interest in the plan and at 8am changed changed the system to have it with iPad.

      They probably have a JB hifi rep hired just to lurk these forums lmao

        We need to make a new forum system that blocks them from seeing these cracker deals. Sick of the disgusting acts by stores taking away my dreams of being rich and being able to afford everything posted on ozbargain.

      •  

        A lot of companies lurk on these forums looking for things like this.

        My local store manager knows about OzB as he generally asks whether I heard about the deals on OzB or whirlpool forums!!

    Good ol OzBargain has done it again

  •  

    Currently doing it JB thompsons rd. Thanks OP

    •  

      Why thanks?

    •  

      Report back. Requiring iPad? Can you use gift card against iPad?

      •  

        Will report back. Anxiously waiting for my GC

        •  

          You might get it being the first one, but they will close the loophole once they read their memos

          • +3 votes

            @unity1: Got it. Waited for maybe 10mins. Staff was on the phone for a while but she eventually gave me the GC. Could be because I've already signed the contract before she received the memo. I can post it but I forgot how to attach photos

    Was told the same at Pitt Street - has to be bought with a tablet.

  • +3 votes

    I'm assuming you can't use the voucher to offset the iPad purchase? Because I am in the market for 2 ipads as christmas presents.

    •  

      1) buy one ipad
      2) use gift card to buy another ipad
      3) if cc still has money go to step 2 if not go to step 4
      4) cancel all telstra plans from today
      5) keep needed iPad, sell the rest

  • +2 votes

    NEG.
    Went to airport west JBHIFI they were super nice about it but you have to purchase a tablet to get the deal.

    • +1 vote

      And the GC can't be used towards the tablet correct?

      • +1 vote

        Correct

        •  

          Couldn't you just return the iPad after spending it's balance?

  • +4 votes

    Lol au retailers are getting more efficient in their memo response time.

    Why I got this feeling they are watching us in Ozbargain.

    It's like we warned them in advance of any mistakes.

    Does the $300 have to be used towards a purchase of an iPad?

    Or do you habe to buy an iPad on a plan too?

    If option A, can it be returned within 3p days?

  • +1 vote

    This shouldn’t have been a ‘deal’ in the first place. Flimsy proof, no official record and incomplete eligibility details.

    •  

      Apparently the deal was changed at 8am this morning…
      This was posted last night

      •  

        But one guy got it yesterday… So active for one day before got changed

        •  

          Yea it was changed at 8am this morning. The original deal was live yesterday.

    •  

      Was told it was withdrawn at 6pm yesterday.

    •  

      Why? worked for me and a few other OZBs. Many thanks to OP!!!

    got pulled in the middle of signing up, oh well.

    Friend at Fountain Gate JB "They said two options one with ipad and one with just sim" obviously he has chosen Sim only

    YMMV

    EDIT: Deal got updated to iPad only mid sign up

  •  

    Still a good deal on an iPad, and if you can return it, even better

  •  

    Galleries just reported it must be with a ipad.

    iPad requirement. Can be purchased with the deal's gift card? Yes / No?

    Edit: No it seems

  •  

    Got a feeling you need to get cellular ipad also as the wifi version doesn't accept sim card…..

    If you must have this deal, buy it with iPad and sell the iPad on feeBay or Facebook market place.

      You lose value in reselling the iPad plus have to deal with low ballers on scumtree or fb market place

    OzBargain, you've done it again.

    Why does everyone up vote deals before they know?

        Did you get it?

        How about wasting people's time?

  •  

    Is it a new norm to utilise the OZB community to perform product acceptance testing and stress testing?? Might be companies rolling out new products and reviewing the performance live using OZB warriors!

    •  

      If that were the case, the only thing they're measuring by these kinds of deals is human nature of getting something for nothing
