            @keyboardwarrior: People would like these considering many didn't have access to the WH-1000xm4 just recently

              @ln28909: Hope Mod will ignore my own report. Yes, I have just found out the UE Megaboom is $199 via TGGC is cheaper than $209 that I have paid (as well more effort via gift card, driving to the store etc).

        Thanks for the reply. I still did not get it. If I open the account, I have to provide all the details and if I dont provide tfn, I guess still they can acess my funds?
        Can you plz let me know in details how I open the account therr

          You can have multiple super funds, they won't automatically transfer your funds over.

            @realfancyman: Are there any account keeping fees?

            •  

              @ttkc: From their PDS

              "$1.50 per week plus 0.10% p.a. of the first
              $800,000 of your account balance only."

              •  

                @TThomas: I'm pretty sure that if your super balance is less than $1000, super providers are not allowed to charge admin fees. This is something the ATO put in to place to stop inactive accounts with low balances being eroded by fees. So if you open a new account and elect not to have insurance and never use it, it should remain open for ~16 months before they can transfer the balance to the ATO - similar to unclaimed monies at the bank.
                I could be wrong though so do your own research.

                • +5 votes

                  @haggertm: Did my own research and that is incorrect, they are allowed to charge you 3% of the balance when it's under $6000.

                  Sounds like Sunsuper will charge the fees but refund at the end of the year, so if you have no balance sounds like you're still unlikely to be charged in the end.

                  "If youraccountbalanceforaproductofferedis less than$6,000at theendof thefinancial year, thetotal combinedamountof
                  administrationfees, investment feesandindirect costs chargedtoyouis cappedat3% of theaccountbalance. Anyamount
                  chargedinexcessof thatcap mustberefunded."

                  And copying from a PDS sucks

                  •  

                    @TThomas: Though 3% of $0 is what…?

                    • +1 vote

                      @bargainshooter: 3% of $0 is $0. I'm surprised to have to come on a bargains site and teach simple arithmetic.

                      However as I stated earlier they have a $1.50 per week fee, and by their PDS it sounds like they may still charge that through the year, send your account into debit and only at the end of the year will you be refunded. All of this was stated above

                      Although this may not happen, according to their PDS they could manage the account in this way. Maybe you should read the PDS rather than providing nothing to the conversation, least @haggertm provided some information which wasn't exactly correct but did provide some information about low balances

                        @TThomas: Lol clearly I'm not in need of education on simple maths. It's capped at 3%. That's $0 with no funds in it. Per your own copy and paste "Any amount
                        charged in excess of that cap must be refunded."

                        Edit: that wasn't my neg…

                        •  

                          @bargainshooter: Appreciate you clarifying about the neg, even if I did sound like a douche in my response, the point was valid.

                          I can see all these ozbargainers opening up accounts then crying back here because they didn't read the PDS, are seeing fees on their account and people said on here they wouldn't be charged. Yes may still be charged and will be refunded at the end of the year based on your balance

                          • +1 vote

                            @TThomas: The way it typically works is that the account is classified as inactive until a contribution is made (either by yourself or your employer). If after a certain period no contributions are made then the account is closed off. They don't chase you up for account fees when there's no activity there.

                            For context I work at a super fund but not SunSuper.

                  •  

                    @TThomas: I recently completed a unit at uni on superannuation and I would have sworn that they taught us that if the balance is under $1000, they are not allowed to charge fees. I did a quick google search and cant find any evidence that this is true though.
                    It wasn't an overly important part of the unit but I just remember thinking "I wonder if I can split my super across multiple funds and not have to pay any fees" but then immediately realising that, that would be extremely impracticable.
                    I would be surprised if a super fund was allowed to put your account into negative though.

                    But as I said, don't make a decision based on this, do some research and see if its something you feel comfortable doing.

        Looks like it takes up to 5 days for GGC access to be granted.

        But if you don't have any money in there, how would they charge you? I'm going with haggertm's response

          Put the account in to debit and come chasing after you.

    The other day I signed up for a free account at https://www.yoursalarybenefits.com.au and registered for the good guys commercial from there no issues

    •  

      Is this still going? I don't see the good guys listed anywhere

    •  

      same that's how I got access

    •  

      Can you sign up without a company though?

      •  

        I did. Just filled the form and got straight in

        •  

          Strange! I tried but had "field required" pop up if i didn't fill in the company section.

          •  

            @Shanetrain: Same here. Got required field there no matter what I fill in.

            Did you manage to sign up?

        •  

          What did you use as company name? Do they validate the name and NPF status?

            @DoctorCalculon: Self Employed. No validation. The sign up page linked to a blank page, but Good Guys emailed 1-2 days later, so something must registered somewhere.

      Tried to click on the sign up link to request TGGC access , but only showing empty screen.

        same for me

      Looks like they create TGGC login for you now? I can't see a way to do it.

        •  

          Hmm. I already had done that, it gave login to YSB but cannot login to TGGC.

          •  

            @Xizor: When did you create an account? Did you read the page I linked to?

            Please note that this process takes 24-72 hours from the time we receive your request.

              @bio: Yeah thanks mate. Been a week now. :(

              •  

                @Xizor: True, I haven't received an email either. I guess Sun Super is the way to go.

              •  

                @Xizor: On another post I'm following they are saying that their new GGC accounts are being cancelled.

    What sorts of deals are we talking about though?

    If a TV was say $1500 normally, how much would it be if bought through Good Guys commercial?

    •  

      Varies between products. Some are more expensive, the same, or cheaper. You will have to compare yourself. I saved $100 on a coffee machine at the commercial site vs the regular site for example. YMMV.

    •  

      I saved $300 for Bosch 10kg washing machine.

    •  

      As others have said it varies. Product I looked at was 20% below public sale price, 35% below RRP.

      TVs I've been told have very little margin in them so unlikely to get much discount. The best TV deals are when it's the manufacturer doing the deal. I.e., when you see JB hifi ad for $1000 off Samsung TVs, that's in partnership with the manufacturer and they wouldn't normally be able to sell at that price.

  •  

    How much of a price difference is it via the commercial site?

    Are all items cheaper?

    •  

      No, you will have to compare. Every product is different.

  •  

    Can store credit be used on commercial site?

    •  

      If you manage to get a credit from TGG Commercial then yes, otherwise no.
