BIG W Staff Sale Coming up 10% Discount on Most of The Items - 26Nov-27Nov,2011

Moved to Forum: Original Link

I came to know about the BIGW upcoming staff sale on 26thNov-27Nov.,2011.

Its time to grab some descent bargains. Its confirmed and will upload the Poster as well. Please note am not working or part of Woolworths, came to know from a friend who works there and I will be taking him along with me to help grabbing me above mentioned bargain.

Not everyone will be able to grab this deal but still relevent to some.

As I know, it excludes WISH Gift cards only. Will give complete details in few hours time.

    I don't think this kind of thing belongs on ozbargain. All readers of this website should have the opportunity to partake in a deal.

      orrr…everyone can go make a friend who works at woolworths/bigw! =P

      •  

        I'm with you. With the number of people hired by the greater WW group, many people will know someone in there, and if not, make friends :)

      Agree, this is limited to people who work there. Staff discounts don't belong here. Maybe move to the forums so people who are entitled can still discuss it, but it's not a legit deal or bargain.

        possibly under a staff-discounts section ?

      •  

        agreed

    Better start sending my resume :)

    Yes, not for OzBargain - it is up to Woolworths to advertise this to their own employees.

  •  

    I'll move this to the forums later today if there's no evidence that it's actually real.

      maybe there should be a 'rumors' category ???

    •  

      for what it's worth i can say for sure it's legit - i work for a woolies co. store and saw the poster for this (dates are correct, too) but i didn't think it was worthy of posting

      it had few exclusions and i remember checking specifically if it excluded ipads and it did not (that is generally what most people are interested in hearing despite there being cheaper - albeit uglier - paper weights readily available in many other stores)

  •  

    i know someone with a staff card, but i rarely know about the particular staff sales… is it just a straight 10% off or are there special For Staff only prices?

    •  

      who knows? we have no info about this deal…

      looks photoshoped…

      do you have a direct link ?

    •  

      I can confirm it's real. I've got the same flyer.

      It's not going to be on any Big W website as it's not available to the public.

    surely all staff would find about this themselves coming up to the event

    •  

      you'd think so… good point…

    • +1 vote

      If you ever worked at Woolies you'd understand that staff have trouble finding out about anything- especially management decisions!

    •  

      Nope, like most people, staff are morons, and so are those that should supply this info.

    That is great, I can get 10% discount.

    …. but wait, I am not working in Woolworths. I need to quit this job and get one there. Am I too late to start learning and getting a job there before the 10% expired ?

  •  

    Anything good I can buy ?

    •  

      iPod's and iPad's

        I'd rather pay 10% more and not work at Woolies…

      •  

        lol thats a joke right? 10% off something that overpriced in the first place? i prefer my 100$ HP touchpad / 249$ A501 Tablet.. :)

  •  

    Staff only, and just 10%…..

  •  

    Sould neg this as I no longer possess the staff card.

    •  

      that doesn't make it any less of a deal for people who do..

    Was waiting for the negs to come. The way I see it…

    There are plenty of offers posted for single stores in a city that many cannot get to, but this is multiple and nationwide.
    By posting this, it's letting people know so they can possibly ask a friend or family member to grab something for them. It's not just Big W staff, but all Woolworths discount card holders nationally, so that does cover a lot of people.
    So that's possibly going to help more people than than some free side dish deal at a CBD curry shop.

    Well, that's my take on it. Happy bargain hunting.

    Staff discount is real, but not suitable for ozbargain as it is only limited to woolworths staff (big w, BWS, DSE etc.)

    •  

      "We employ more than 191,000 people and are one of the largest private sector employers in Australia"

      http://www.woolworthslimited.com.au/phoenix.zhtml?c=144044&p...

      many of those would also use ozbargain i assume… i think these types of deals could be categorised differently and included somehow…

      •  

        Not to mention, anyone part-time or full time gets two discount cards.

  •  

    Really - send an internal e-mail out to your friends in woolworths! This is part of your employment benefit and not a bargain!

  •  

    With almost 200,000 australians eligible, the ability to ask family and friends you would have to be daft to think it isn't a deal that should be posted.

    After all, minimum quantity is 10 on Ozbargain. This is well into the thousands mark and also available online.

  •  

    They had one of these sales back in August, I got a 16GB 3G iPad 2 for ~$650 instead of $718.

  •  

    maybe place in brackets limited to those with friends or family at big w or wollies

    like when u have a melb or perth based deal
    we place the location on it!

    Well. I decided to move it to the General Discussion forums. Yes Woolworths is a big organisation but still the majority of people in Australia do not have access to this deal. It's also difficult to draw a line — how many employee should a company have before its staff-only deal can be featured on OzBargain?

    It's also different from some previous "family-and-friends" sales (from Myer for example), that are actually open to all.
