    Instead of always having "sales" just bring prices inline with overseas markets and stop ripping us off.

    • +16 votes

      Wasn't aware that JB was an importer (with the exception of their Soniq etc brands)…
      Importers/Distributors are the ones you need to aim your 'complaint' at…

      Why does Sony Australia have a higher buy price than Sony UK for an equivalent LCD for example…
      the price differential starts further down the chain than the shop you walk into…

      •  

        No JB is also partly to blame, for certain items and I'm only using Xbox Live Points as an example here. 1500 Xbox Live Points goes for $24 delivered online at Game.com.au and $24.95 instore. Last I checked there are only two distributors of these points in Australia (maybe 3 now with the intro of those cards that are similar to the iTunes), which means if Game can sell it at that price then why does JB charge $28 for it?

          which is a separate issue to -
          "bring prices inline with overseas markets and stop ripping us off"

          but a difference of $3 is far from 'ripping us off'… im sure we could find examples of game.com.au being $3 more on a particular item than jbhifi

        • +3 votes

          Thats an example TND is taking. Secondly its not 3 dollars, its approx 12% of the difference between the stores.

        Last time when they had the sale, they did that and I can confirm. This was just before last Christmas, Family and Friends sale or what ever. They also use 6pm-9pm so they cant ring other stores for price matching (in SA)So be aware and be prepared!!! Go for customers rights!!!

        As one of the major retailers in the country, I am sure that they have a say in import prices.

    Dissapointing sale. No discounts on blu-ray!!

    • +1 vote

      According to some of the replies on Facebook, looks like Blu-ray's may be under the "20% off DVDs" category.

    "The stores will close at 5.30pm & re-open at 6pm."

    This is exactly what the magic will happen - to mark up the price!

    • +15 votes

      thats illegal

    • +4 votes

      This can sometimes work to your advantage. Look for the one item that they forgot to mark up and demand the discount off that. I've done this in the past with a game. However after having the proof of them marking up in my hands, I'm reluctant to go there anymore. Dodgy F'ers. :P

    •  

      The last time I went to the sale the Staff used the half hour to put up 20% off posters and banners and to change into stupid costumes some had even painted their faces, the previous FF sale to that one that I went to that they used the time to set up a barbie for a sausage sizzle and organise a raffle, no prices where marked up the sale is good and I'm going to get some more blus :)

    These sales are not everyone. 10% off? You must be crazy…

  •  

    One can presume that Blu Rays are included for the 20% off?

  • +2 votes

    if Blu Rays are included, JB HiFi is still doing the 2 for $20 sale (details here: http://www.jbhifionline.com.au/BLURAY2FOR20.HTM ) meaning that you can pick up 2 for $16, which is pretty cheap.

    •  

      Would be good, but JB's around me seem to have a poor range to the sales on-line. Some that are on sale on-line are not even included in the in-store sales.

    •  

      they did that last time as well

    15% Off Computers (excludes Apple, Sony Vaio & Tablets)

    I would love to go to my local JB before they close - snap some prices, then go back after 6pm and see if there was any 'price creep'.

  •  

    nice…..more bargains.
    Just bought a HP laptop during their 15% off this weekend.
    http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/49474

    would have gone for a ASUS or ACER if I knew this is gonna happen since the 15% off is for ALL notebooks.
    You think they will give me a Refund simply becoz change of mind?

    computer accessories 15% off too? RAM and Storage and Modem? (anyone know?)

    • +6 votes

      Computer accessories such as RAM and modems I'd go to MSY instead, much cheaper prices.

  •  

    tsk, no 7" tablet (specifically the samsung galaxy)

  • +3 votes

    +1 to Mac Book Air. I'm curious to know if its going to drop.

  • +7 votes

    I would be taking snaps of prices the day prior to the sale, rather than day of. Cause they probably spend the day taking off 'sale' prices, so if you went in the arvo of the day of the ff sale, they may already be at the inflated prices. Oh and by the way, it is illegal for price inflation to base 'save' claims on, and they would be in sh*tloads of trouble with ACCC if proven and convicted.

    •  

      I'm a bit rusty but there is a lot of grey area, which probably saves JB in situations like this.

      http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/826489 is relevant and talks of prices immediately before a sale and also talks about pricing for a reasonable period of time.

      http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/907240/fro... also makes for interesting reading.

      I think it would turn of the phrase "immediately prior to" and what that meant. One hour, one day, one week?

      •  

        From my experience, it is generally 4 weeks at one price to set a standard price to base a save statement on. Obviously they could have fine print like 'savings based off RRP' or 'normal sale price' which technically could have been slightly before current catalogue/deal.

        Very much grey area, but would love to see photo proof!

        •  

          are they actually using a ' save ' statement or just % off ticket ….. whatever that happens to be

        • +2 votes

          I worked at a JB for around 3 years this didn't happen, sales have set promo dates. If a sale occurs after this that’s just what happens. People need to stop coming up with conspiracies about this stuff it doesn’t happen as it is illegal.

          As for pricing stop complaining about Australian retailers and the prices, go and write to the likes of Sony, Warner etc who set price points on these items. Until they change the pricing retailers will be forced to have higher pricing.

        • +3 votes

          "I worked at a JB for around 3 years this didn't happen"

          Same, and being the one that wrote most of the tickets (hand written price tickets), you cant exactly redo an entire store, let alone a section in 30 minutes…

    You can always bargain with JB and get 10% off straight away, then sometimes more. But I guess in this case you don't have to do any work and get a little more off it too.

  •  

    XBLA Point cards included?

  • +1 vote

    well, i'm game to post any 'before' and 'after' shots here, and since it's illegal i suspect if you confront JB with the evidence they will simply bribe you by giving you a bigger discount in exchange for deleting said shots…

    I'm done with JB and their shitty no price-matching policy, plus they dare lie to me the last time I was there, have fun guys!

      are u sure they dont pricematch? last time they had a sale I got them to price match a kmart dvd price, and got the 20% off on top of that.

    • +1 vote

      I'm fine that they don't guarantee price matching. But when they don't even match a price from another JB Hifi that is above their regular 'sale' prices then I call BS. The sales rep even got shitty that the receipt was from OzBargain :)

      But hey, just one more reason to buy these products online. Too bad for the decent sale staff who do a great job, no sympathy for the duds who will hopefully be chopped first.

          s2 accessories like wat? i will definitely buy from ebay. and i am sure it will be much cheaper than in jbhifi, no matter wat discount they offer. i got my case and screen protector for $1 each (totally $2)

      you guys should sell it off for cash, cash is g00d, always g00d.

      the next time someone tries to get me one of these stinking gift cards, i say "put the money in an empty envelope addressed to me thank you!"

      FYI Gift cards have an expiry date, and holy f**k, how da hell can money have an expiry date?! freaking gift card companies, I even called them before to ask where the money goes when the remaining balance is "expired", they have no answer at all, dodgy!

      •  

        Letting unused gift cards linger in the liabilities section of their accounts indefinitely would mess with their balances and ratios.
        That said, I'm sure they enjoy that not all gift cards are used before they expire.

      •  

        I used to work at Myer. There are still people with those paper gift vouchers from decades ago because some bright spark didn't slap an expiry date on them. It's stupid especially when you think that Myer has changed hands from Coles Myer to being its own company, and they've had to factor in all those liabilities and everything. It is constricting in many other ways too - e.g. Myer upgraded their POS last year. They had to accomodate those old vouchers in the new POS.

        It's just good business sense to put a cap on such things before you let them get out of hand. It's like how businesses encourage people to take their annual leave instead of letting it accrue.

        • +2 votes

          How is it good business to rip off customers? Personally I'm not a fan of gift cards. I mean compared to cash
          - they expire
          - they can only be used at certain locations
          - some cost money to purchase on top of the card value

          If they had something like "spend $50, get a gift card worth $55" it would make sense. As it is, it's ridiculously stupid.

    Nice, I just ordered something online this evening, but have cancelled it and will pick up a copy on Wednesday instead!

    For those who are interested, I worked out the 15% off price for the Nikon D7000 16MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-105mm VR Lens and at the current price of $ 1587, it would come down to $ 1348.95.

    That is a fair bit cheaper than the BHPhotoVideo price of $1384 + Shipping + Customs. Not to mention you also get a local warranty to go with it. Also, it is pretty much the same price as DWI @ $1239 + $ 63 Shipping + Customs.

    Almost can't resist the temptation !!!

    •  

      I went into one of the Sydney CBD shop today to check out the stock, but unfortunately there's no D7000 kits left in the Sydney city stores (although the standalone body is still available). I managed to get the lady to order it in from another store and give the kit to me with 15% off but I got sucked in to get a whole heap of extras (damn the upsell!). In the end, I got the D7000 kit (with standard 18-105mm lens), an extra 35mm f/1.8 prime lens, 2x 8GB SD, 2x UV filters, 1 lowepro camera bag, 3 years ext. warranty, altogether for $2,000. On the receipt, the D7000 kit was listed around $1300. Good deal?

    Not sure if anyone's interested in the Nikon D3100 Twin Lens Kit that was posted a few days ago, http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/49386#comment-540585, but you could try price matching then getting the 15% off. Brings the total to $660.45

    That's a BARGAIN. That's about $20 cheaper than in Hong Kong.

    Sweet as.
    I was planning on buying a certain DVD box set from JB this week, instead of $178 I'll grab it for $142.4.

        DVDs in the UK are region 2. We are region 4.

        If you have a multi-region DVD player, it does not matter.

        Also, a lot but not all DVDs are region coded for both 2 and 4.

        Thankfully Blu-Rays are the same region in Australia and the UK. Also a lot of Blu-Rays will play in all regions.

        There is a website which lists all the region codes for BR, but I can't remember what it is called.

        Of course, if HD-DVD had won, we could have bought them from anywhere.

    There is no need to wait at least for Mac's. I got the new Macbook Air which is supposedly not in next week today at the Watergardens store (Victoria) with the 10% discount inclusive - It is now even cheaper than the education discount that apple offers on their website. Current config Apple Mac Air 13" 128 GB HDD, 4GB Ram for $1280 (Store price $1449.) Ill upload the receipt in a few minutes

      Nope, it's open to public. Tablets aren't included in the sale, so no, the ASUS eee Transformer (which is what I'm assuming you're talking about) would not be included.

    Anyone know if game preorders will be included?
