50% off RRP on All Cycling Gear Storewide - Some Exclusions Apply @ ASG The Store AU

65
SUPPORT50

Due to a dramatic drop in demand for cycling gear associated with the corona virus, we have decided to reduce our stockholding by clearing all items at 50% off RRP – simply use code: support50 at the checkout. We will be deactivating this code as soon as stock levels have been lowered in accordance with the current demand climate.

Thank you for your support, as always it is our pleasure to serve you, our customers - and we look forward to getting through this tough season together! 🙂

  • Code is valid for all items except combo offers, bikes and electric pumps.

    I'm sorry for your circumstances. We are all finding it tough. But this is no excuse.

    From the ACCC:

    What are misleading prices?
    Misleading prices may include:

    ‘savings’ or ‘discount’ statements when compared to the recommended retail price (RRP), but the goods have never been sold at the RRP or the RRP does not reflect a current market price.

    • just like chemist warehouse.. 70% discount on RRP..

    • Sorry Manic, but can you please help us to understand your comment?

      All of our RRP's are the official RRP price from the respective brands. Many of these items are selling at much higher prices on other sites. Please give one example where our RRP is higher than the actual brand's RRP?

      https://www.endura.com.au/

      We are not trying to mislead anyone - it is easier to offer one code at 50% OFF RRP than to adjust the individual pricing of each item for a sale. This way we can give a broad audience a good deal, and know that we are at least not losing money in order to clear stock… I think that is fair no?

      Thank you for all the customers that have been supporting us - much appreciated!

        You should be quoting discounts compared to normal prices that you actually sell at.
        Or you could quote genuine competitor prices. If you are selling online, that means places like Pushy's and Wiggle.

        Do not even mention RRP in any discount claims, as it is a fiction.
        This is not just my personal opinion, but a ruling by Australian regulatory authorities.

        • The regulatory authorities, including the comment you posted, do not say "RRP is a fiction."

      • and know that we are at least not losing money in order to clear stock…

        I was always interested in the types of markups bike shops made. TY.

      I think you are being a little harsh as the title and description clearly state it’s off the RRP.
      I’m not saying this is a bargain but I don’t think it’s deemed as misleading under consumer law.

      Well the energy gels are cheapest I’ve seen so that’s a bargain.

  • A quick search on OzB looks like a monthly sale of 40-50% off.

    question tho, Can a 'Complete Clearance Sale' be called 'complete' if it excludes bikes, combos and other stuffs? :S

    • -1

      Hi Aarent, the combo items are deals where a bunch of items have already been discounted - for example we have a special to receive a free race rainbag with an Aerotech hardcase at an already discounted price of 40% OFF. We don't have enough margin to offer an additional discount of 10% on specials like that. Hope that makes sense?

      Our bikes are all built to order from the US, so they are not applicable to any coupons.

        Thanks for the reply, i was more talking about the wording of the sale, thats all. But its fair reasoning behind it, to me a complete sale is a complete sale and nothing exluded. i'm not particularly interested in bicycle items.

        • Bla bla bla.

    • No, it is called "misleading" advertising, aka "clickbait". There are other online stores, such as Pushys that are notorious for doing this.

  • You would hope the $240 "Aerotech Performance Eyewear" would make you go faster.

    • The new performance eyewear collection from SCICON is very cool. Used by quite a few pro teams including UAE, NTT and Start Up Nation Israel.

      Tech includes :

      • USES UNBREAKABLE SCN-XT PHOTOCROMIC LENSES
        This is the same material used in the wind-shields of apache attack helicopters… awesome optical quality and max resistance. Adjusts to level of UV exposure for consistent protection.
      • INTERCHANGEABLE LENSES SYSTEM
      • FLEXI FIT TEMPLES AND ADJUSTABLE TIPS
      • ADJUSTABLE NOSE PADS
      • ACTIVE ANTI FOG VENTILATION SYSTEM
      • LENS PROTECTION FENDER SYSTEM
  • yeah.
    My local ethnic grocer is closing down. 20% off all sales…. :)

    The salmon 500g pack is usually $25, now it's $32 or so with less than one week to go :)

    $32 less 20% is $25.60 :)

    Computer says no - RRP on smoked salmon and bike stuff are both fantasy land

    It's pretty misleading, you should highlight some of the discounts in the post

  • Can a moderator please remove this deal? It isn't our intention to post a deal that anyone feel is misleading - happy to rather do a different deal at a later stage.

  • +1

    Lotsa legal experts here. Nothing else better to do.lol

  • -2

    Yeah, I agree. This is a pretty poor sale, you need to advertise the discount from the price your normally sell at.

    Mods, I think this should be deleted untill it complies with ACCC guidelines

    Looking at the deal I clicked in and looked at the first product:

    "SCICON AEROCOMFORT ROAD 3.0 TSA BIKE TRAVEL BAG" Listed at $649 but reduced to $474.50 after the code is applied based on original RRP. Still nearly a 27% discount off their usual price. Their usual price to begin with is less than most other retailers seem to sell it for anyway. I checked a couple of other products and it seems to be a similar story.

    This deal isn't for me, but it does seem to have some legitimate bargains for those that it is targeted to and people should support the merchant with better feedback in terms of providing specific deals rather than just negging the deal. Ozbargain can be a pretty inhospitable place at times which will scare off seemingly good merchants like this one that offer competitive prices and good specials.

    All that would have to happen to make this deal compliant is just change the phrase to "Up to 50% off" instead of "50% off RRP" as they do have some items sold at RRP and then provide some specific bargains in the body of the post.
