    BTW, this is a long-standing government policy and applies to anyone who’s been through a natural disaster. It’s not something specifically offered to victims of the current catastrophic bushfires: https://www.passports.gov.au/passports-explained/how-apply/e...

    • Thanks for link. Good to know DFAT’s following official policy, instead of do-gooder brand promotions.

    isnt this a targeted deal? >_>

      Targeted deals are allowed. Marking them as targeted however requires a moderator 😉

    These are not deals, can't we have a page dedicated for bushfire victims ?

    • Deals for the unfortunate affected by bushfires……

        This more of a platform for keyboard warriors and good publicity for businesses.
        If you are a bushfire victim, there are some good communities out there with genuine help.
        When your house got burn, first thing you do is to look for bushfire deal in Ozb? Lol

      …and a page for any items under $5, particularly groceries.

    No, it’s not a deal or a bargain.

    However, OzBargain is a great platform to share information as such. Those who have replied saying bushfire victims won’t be surfing OzBargain, what else might they be doing? There’s a lot of time to kill. Sleepless nights, I’m sure. I come on OzBargain even when I’ve got no money, it’s like window shopping. It passes time.

      Also - If my family or a friend was in a bushfire zone and I saw this while sitting at a desk in the city, I would pass on this information.
