            @FireRunner: That's exactly what "first responders" are, which is why it isn't the right term here. Doctors and nurses aren't first responders. And it's an American term which we never used here until recently.

        • +4

          $363 if you pay using egift card!

          • @coxymla: Where do we get these discounted gift cards?

            • +2

              @FireRunner: Check your banking, super, energy company, newspaper for "rewards".
              Suncorp (AAMI) is pretty good.

            • +1

              @FireRunner: or if you know someone, who works for woolworths, their plusclub members get 7% off, and from time to time they have promotion for 10% off.

          • @coxymla: will they let us pay with a gift card?

            • +2

              @BigMac2000: I've never had a problem with payment via gift cards. I very often ring a store to reserve an item and then go-line to redeem a gift card from credit card points.

              JB HiFi are great because their gift cards don't expire.

        I just checked the actual link and it does say that consoles are excluded.

  • Really interested to see what the exclusions will be.

    • +42

      *excludes anything you might actually be interested in

    • Not that much, a few brands plus the usual stuff: Apple Products, Mobile Phone Contracts, Miele & Asko agency products, Dell Built to Order, Pre-Paid Cards & Gift Cards, Pre-Orders, Extended Warranties, Installation & Delivery.

    • Excluded - everyone else that isn't a first responder lol

    sorry for stealing your well deserved upvotes @dealbot in my dupe

    so here's an upvote

      Stealing implies ownership, you're off the hook.

    As we negotiate on price, products are likely to have sold below ticketed/advertised price in stores prior to the discount offer

    Anyone know what this means?

    • +3

      Guessing it’s so they don’t get accused of false advertising or price jacking

    • Sounds like they acknowledge that you may have been able to negotiate a better price before this offer but they won't match or put the 10/15% off of the negotiated price only ticketed and advertised prices

    • +5

      Just means someone could have haggled a better price than the discount price

    • Means whatever they want to interpret to use if they don't want to sell something at a certain price !

    • +2

      That $3000 tv can be bargained down to $2500 any day of the week.
      But this offer is a flat 15% discount, making the same TV $2550.

      • So does this mean, if you negotiated a lower price, you can’t put 15% off on top of it like with what we can do with the 5% off wicked Wednesday code?

      • really? I've been trying to get some of their OLEDs down but they simply won't move more than ~$80. What am I doing wrong?

        • They probably have a supplier spiv and won't budge as they won't get paid it. Try other stores mate, you in QLD by any chance?

        • I always find negotiating and price matching far easier at GoodGuys, I find JbHiFi employees treat you like a criminal, do like 100 checks before they price match then get the manager, try to sell you extra stuff etc. I remember going into GoodGuys for a TV when JB sold out, I asked him to do cheaper than JB on the basis I could get gift cards, he didn't even look at stock levels or whether I was telling the truth and just matched it. Not the first time either.

  • Wonder if this includes ESTA staff.

    • Sorry to sound callous but no.

  • Will this stack with other ongoing deals like the 20% off Blu ray ?

  • +1

    What about pathology collectors? I know people who collect >120 Covid-19 PCR swabs/day at their Drive Through locations

    • Show them your ID and hope for the best. :)

    I hope my nurse outfit comes in time, in an attempt to fool the staff

      that might work, depending on whether you shave your legs or not.

    • lol

    Seems silly to have it on one day only with store occupancy restrictions.

    I'm a student paramedic, although im not actively working obviously do you think I would be eligible?

    • +1

      do you have a medical ID?

      • No, so guess not then.

        • +2

          Try going in your uniform.

        This seems a bit harsh. At least they are aspiring to move into the field and they weren’t saying “I deserve this!” They were simply asking the question

            @sushipizza: I suppose you didn't say you were a medical doctor…

            My wife and I haven't made less than 100k since we were PGY2 - both work in NSW.

            What is your position and which state are you based?

            • +3

              @FreddyMerc: I am merely pointing out that I do not earn that amount. I am QLD based and beyond PGY2 as a medical doctor and worked through COVID.

            • +1

              @FreddyMerc: PGY2 (many years ago now) was the best income I ever received. GP is a sinking ship for so, so many reasons…

  • +1

    will all the good stuff conveniently be out of stock?

    • No, they are already excluded. See the list of excluded products.

      They will be in stock, just no discount.

  • Allied health no good?

    • +2

      I think this is a disgrace - the social workers are frontline for absolutely every horrible thing that happens in the hospital and deserve a medal.

      • +2

        It’s a bit of a stretch to say it’s a “disgrace”
        I hardly think an occupational therapist or speech pathologist is putting themselves at the same risk every day that a doctor or nurse is
        However, people like pathologists do miss out a bit. My hospital had 2 pathologists contract COVID from handling all the swabs and everything. Not sure if correlation equals causation here but you can’t deny the risk there.

        • +2

          Speech pathologists in general is considered a high risk cohort as a significant amount of their work involves procedures are classified as aerosol generating. Having said that, they frequently missed out on any deals for front liners as they are not regulated by AHPRA.

          The Australian Department of Health has provided national guidance on prioritisation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) due to risks involved. Several allied health professions have been deemed high priority (i.e. high risk). These are:

          • Speech pathologists
          • Respiratory physiotherapists
          • Sonographers
          • Diagnostic radiographers

          See details here:

        • +1

          As speech pathologists we are first to attend to patients' swallowing difficulty (either after intubation or during oxygen support), and systema is right, speech pathologists often work face-to-face and are hence at high risk of contracting. I often see patients who cough right in front of my face without any PPE (hospital is short of)

    • Just show your ID

    • It does say health care workers

  • +3

    "products are likely to have sold below ticketed/advertised price in stores prior to the discount offer" - reads like they're going to add 15% to everything on Wednesday night

  • Still overpriced.

  • +4

    Don't really need anything but happy to purchase for people in Hobart if anyone needs something.

    Can also access 5% off vouchers if you wanted to stack and get a cheap Switch as mentioned above.
