    The Black & Decker cordless drill would be a typo it's 18v not 17v

    •  

      What if it's a 17V knock off?

      • +19 votes

        That'll be 1V knocked off

    The electric bike sounds interesting. I’d have thought it’s probably on-par with something like the eBay el-cheapo’s but if it comes with a decent backing from K-Mart it might be worth a look?

        Thanks Rangawal :) I think the Leitners have a pretty good reputation so if it’s of the same caliber that would good.

        • +6 votes

          Kmart's cycling department is specializing in BSO, I would not expect their ebikes to be on par with decent brands.

          Aussie company and Aus Post use their bikes too.

            @ConsumerAffairs: Well, if Auspost use the Leitner ones they’re probably reasonable. I can’t see them using something totally unreliable.

      Agree, more bargains for us.

      On a side note, Kmart is pretty much dead in the US, most of its stores are gone. Amazon killed them, and many other similar stores (eg Sears).

        I hope Kmart doesn't get killed here in Oz!
        We stopped shopping brand name clothes and some odd furniture and only buy from Kmart now, multiple times per month.
        Cheap rpices, acceptable quality, I hope Kmart stays here for years to come.

          Kmart in the US is completely different to how it is here.

          If you step back to Kmart in Australia about 10 or 20 years ago, that's what Kmart in the USA is like today, but with the added burden of a grocery department as well.

          Kmart has only survived here by dumping almost all branded merchandise and replacing it with generic merchandise. You used to be able to buy car batteries, name-brand TVs, proper name brand shoes at Kmart. Now you can't even buy car batteries or TVs at Kmart, and they only sell generic shoes.

          To be fair most of the merchandise is fairly functional, albeit cheaply made.

        Haven't our Kmart opened up US stores under the name ANKO?

        •  

          They could probably get away with buying the Kmart operation in the US for very cheap and expanding that way.

        • +3 votes

          Yes, here they will add a W as a colloquialism and become Wanko, much like when you go for a Smoko, going to kmart will be like I'm going to Wanko.

          More bargains mean higher prices later to make up for the bargains.

        • +2 votes

          Is it though? Retailers aren't exactly doing to their own detriment - they're doing it because it's good for them. If it's good for them, that means people are spending more than they otherwise would have.

          The US goes mad over Black Friday. Look at the sh!t that happens in their malls when stores open. You telling me that people (ie consumers) are better of with that than without?

    I can’t recall the last time Kmart has sold brands like Russell Hobbs or Black and Decker. Must be at least 10 years.

    I thought they only sold Anko

    •  

      Perhaps they are only doing brands for 'special buy' (aldi style) events when they can get a good price?

    • -1 vote

      Maybe people are finally realising that there's very little actually worth buying from Kmart so they need to bring brands back? Even though B&D is known to be pretty average these days.

      I'd be curious to know if anybody prefers a Kmart version of something after having tried a few other brands for the same item, because I can't think of much.

      •  

        Rice cooker. $4 IIRC, can't go wrong. Or maybe that was at target.

        •  

          I had a bad experience with an AC adaptor from a made for Kmart toy. It literally broke apart without much force when I tried to unplug it from a live powerboard. It was a HPM powerboard too. So no excuse for a dodgy fit you can sometimes get from generic powerboards.

        Actually on the contrary, Kmart has a bit of a cult following since upping their game a few years ago.

        While I haven't tried other brands (cost prohibitive), I recently bought a air fryer and it has replaced both my convection oven and standard oven.

        Edit: and the deep fryer.

      •  

        Oh yeah. People do.

        Especially kids toys.. they have brand toys as well which are really good value, most of the times Kmart has cheapest of brand toys such as vtech. Their kids clothes, furniture and recently their vacuum gone viral. So much stuff that people have adopted recently.

        They had their profits more than few top retailers combined couple of years ago.

        You see, I'd completely forgotten about this comment until now. I bought this yesterday for work because I'm tired of getting up and walking around the desk to unplug/replug USB's in… hidden below that cardboard is a cable all of 20cm long if I'm being generous. Nowhere on the packaging does it say it's so short and I wanted it on my desk. Plugged it in and do you think it supports portable hard drives? Nope. They power up and spin but aren't read by the PC, even if there's only the one plugged in.

        Seriously. Stuff Kmart.

        •  

          To be fair, I have an expensive Targus one and that only has a short 10-20cm cord as well, probably intended for use with laptops (which is what I am using it with). Haven't tried if it works with portable hard drives, but it's not an externally powered hub so I suspect not. What you probably want is a desktop powered hub like Blitzwolf or Tronsmart.

    Does anyone own this Kmart BBQ? I assume it wouldn't be as good as Weber, but how is the build & quality overall?

    •  

      I can't see any bbqs listed on their site. I'm interested at $99, should be small enough to tuck away in the garage so it doesn't rust up instantly

      see them bbq at roadside hard waste collection, not as good as a weber.

      Looks to be the same as this Woolies one from April, which was only $45.

    Expect Aldi queuing like chaos for this egg chair. Mabye go to the 24/7 store and go late the night before or early hours

    •  

      Egg chair all sold out in New Town TAS by around 6:15 when I got there this morning. Waste of time. It was still showing as in stock online after I left the store too - only just showed out of stock in the last 5 mins (1 hr later!)

      Staff said they had started with about 22 units. Website says sale shoulda started at 6am for the 24hr stores, so must have sold out quick… They said I could try Rosny but it's not 24hr (not open yet) and the website says "out of stock" so I'm not going to waste even more time finding out.

  •  

    can we buy the e-bikes online?

  •  

    Anyone know if the egg chair will be available to purchase online or is it in store only?

    Full line up of products has been revealed…

    Anyone got any idea about the spec of this e-Volt electric bike? The catalogue states only 25km range which is quite low. How big is the battery size? Kogan one has 40km range with 10Ah battery.

    •  

      Check the website (link below). Says 7.5Ah

  •  

    Anybody notice that the e-volt bike is on the website anymore?

    Employees of Kmart - any ideas if you can click and collect for web orders placed at 12.01am? I just want to secure and pay for stock but pick up in store later.

    •  

      I'm not an employee but each product page is showing Zip and Afterpay as payment options, so as long as the store is showing stock you'd assume this would be the case.

    What is the difference between Boom 2 UE Lite and Boom 2 UE?
