sends off flare
Hi, Mac from Zip here, call Zip Customer Care on (02) 8294 2345
hi, how do you sign up if you don't have a credit history? (got sufficient funds to pay it off instantly, just want to get the $50 discount. never used credit cards before)
They told me to clear my browser cache (it was the only tab I had open) and eventually said they were having issues syncing with Amazon.
did you get it resolved??
@clandestino: Still doesn't work. I'm going to miss the preorder window.
The $30 credit for future purchase is for prime members only.
What an emotional rollercoaster! Just missed out on EB Games pre order. Got one from JB Hi Fi For $50 deposit, but not guaranteed. Almost got one for $750 deposit (!!!) from Sony store just in case (and free delivery). Saw this just in time, phew! $700, launch day, no deposit, free delivery - done.
Should I hold onto my JB Hi Fi pre order just in case or is my pre order with Amazon safe and secure? :s
As long as you don’t expect your amazon order to arrive launch day you sweet.
Lucky launch day is a Thursday so you might get it on the Friday.
Amazon sucks at getting stuff out on time.
That’s why I am happy to forgoe $50 cash back for a launch day click and collect.
amazon delivers in weekends, at least in my area.
Both are available again on the EB games website
Hahahaha I totally agree that the morning has been an emotional rollercoaster. The life of an OzBargainer can be stressful!!!
I went with Amazon, $30 credit and $50 cash back via Zip Pay.
if you receive 2 just sell one off lol
Got one, thanks
I may well just be dumb. But is there a way to take advantage of this without having to actually pay any fees to Zip?
I'm thinking pre-order the PS5, pay via Zip, "pre pay" the entire $749 amount into your Zip account, so that when Amazon ships it, Zip just takes the $749 out of your Zip account and doesn't charge you any $6 monthly fees or any other gubbins?
Wait until Zip makes the payment then just pay it off same day.
Ah ok so it's the same as Latitude Pay. cheers!
so is LP more like AP or ZP?
if you have LP, do you have PP which you would just pay in full on the card?
whats happens if you say have some amazon credit on your account on the day when it ships. generally amazon credit/gift cards are used first then whatever remains charged to zip. Would that qualify for the $50 zip promo… or full said amount of $750 needs to be thru zip?
Mac from Zip here, another user has shared that gift cards can be used at checkout to reduce the amount paid by Zip.
As long as you also select Zip as the other payment type, you'll be eligible.
awesome thanks for confirming this.
Damn! Pulled the trigger a few minutes early 😐
Hey Xyron, Mac from Zip here.
Good hack, you'll need to have the total basket size available in your Zip account when you checkout.
But yes, great idea to pay off your Zip balance within the month and have the $6 fee waived.
Hi, this has confused me more. So I do need to "pre pay" the amount into my Zip account to avoid all fees?
pretty sure just pay it within the month…to avoid the $6.
Sorry, no you don't. However you cannot select Zip on Amazon unless you have available balance higher than the basket size.
Eg: If you only had $500 available in your Zip account it will be greyed out on Amazon.
you can pay as little as $10 per week and pay the remainder by the end of the following month (not the same month as the purchase date).
Sorry all, about to show my ignorance (age), but can someone explain the difference between a digital PS5 and an "ordinary" one? (Are there two types??). Many thanks :)
Both consoles are exactly the same, only difference is the digital version is discless, you can only play games that you buy from the PSN store. Which is good in theory but games tend to be more expensive and there is no resale value for the games.
Is this one (Amazon) digital or "ordinary" Thanks :)
Ordinary, at $749 is the "Normal" version with disc and $599 for the "discless" version.
Dangit, thought I could download the Digital PS5 to my PC, then download more RAM from PSN store!
Lol flippers already hitting eBay…
Haha, these flippers will make a killing when the consoles release. Too bad for those who were going to buy them for playing games and not make a profit.
Fool left the "Make an offer" button available..
I suggest OzB him with multiple offers and wastes his time reading multiple ebay messages..
If he automatically refuses low ballers he'll never know
any flippers on GT / FB too
Anyone else getting this error
"Sorry, we couldn’t find a Zip pay account associated with this mobile number"
Literally just signed up and got approved today.
Yeah its a lousy system that links up really slowly. It's been 45 mins for me and still not working.
Ahh… ZackyD/Sammy89, i memba him
Check out #45 ^ lmao
Hi both, Mac from Zip here.
Pls call Zip Customer Care and they'll be able to help you - (02) 8294 2345
I did. They were useless.
Literally sent me an email asking me to use incognito and/or a different browser or device.
Can you combine the ZIP Pay with outstanding gift cards?
this will be the best if we can…$700 on gc via suncorp(preloaded into amz account) and $50 via zip ..hope fully still qualify for $50…unless there is min spend for zip $50 qualification.
I want to know this too. Can the rep please clarify on this? Thanks
Sorry, we couldn’t find a Zip pay account associated with this mobile number.
I just opened an account. Any ideas why Amazon can't find it?
Same issue. I reckon it's just a delay with Amazon communicating with zip.
I called zip, their advice was to make sure the email addresses match.
Edit, can you let me know when yours sorts itself out? I'll do the same.
Sure, the email address is the same. I checked out with my CC not to miss out.
Same problem here on both Firefox and Edge. Zip account is approved. Might make a coffee and try again in 10…
Contacted Zip support. It's an issue they're working on. Will get emailed when it works…
Can we cancel this without any fees as long as it's before the shipment?
Anyone know if I can preorder with CC and then switch to Zip once it works? Amazon can't find my newly created account.
I hope so, that's what i have done.
You can change a payment method later on, but not sure if you get the 50$ cashback.
Impulse purchase. Pulled the trigger! $80 saving pretty decent. Not played console games in a while!!
Pre-ordered at JB for $50 but as no guarantee went with the Amazon pre order. Whichever one comes through earlier for a launch day get I will go with. I have had nothing but good experiences with Amazon, their delivery to me as always been super quick and leaves Aus Post for dead. Can cancel anytime before delivery no fee no hassle. I have also returned items through amazon before for full refund.
They use Aus post for 90% of their deliveries
they havn't built up amazo in AUS like the US yet so yer they do you auspost etc
Is there any guarantee we will get this on launch day?
No. They say releases 12/11
And it says buy now and we will notify you when we have a shipping date.
Hmmmm…. So tempted. To hold out until a Boxing Day price drop or not, that is the question.
I'd be shocked if there is a major price drop only 1 month after the console's release
won't be a price drop, but i'd wager there will be bundles including games, extra controllers, XBLU etc at the same price point.
Ah true, I can see that
Don't think that will happen. Just having stock on boxing day would be a bonus.
@ChrisCam: There will be more than enough stock.
@Frayin: Everyone has sold out of both launch day and second shipments already.
There won’t be much of any stock around come Boxing Day.
@jimbobaus: Sony will make sure they constantly have new stock ready for order. They won't want to risk others just buying an Xbox whom Microsoft will ensure they have plenty of stock.
If there are no PS5's in stock, i'll just buy an xbox.
@Frayin: Sony have already announced they have had to reduced manufacturing.
Was planning to manufacture 15 million units by March 2021 now reduced to 11 million.
They have staggered release to manage stock.
They will be sold out over Xmas same as the PS4 was and the Xbox was at launch.
@jimbobaus: When did Sony announce that?
There were misleading reports earlier and Sony said they are not true.
Lol is that a joke? at this rate all ps5 consoles for Australia 2020 will be sold out by the end of today and you think you are going to get a bargain on boxing Day ?
You think they're going to just stop manufacturing them today? lmao….
No. But demands will certainly outstrip supplies. Especially leading into holiday season and with COVID causing manufacturing issues, it’ll be hard for with MS or Sony to have enough.
Don’t look forward to any price drops or game bundle so early on.
Is this one digital or disc?? Thanks all
The link in the post is the disc version ($749 RRP vs $599 for discless)
Does zip not charge to the account until release?
Just purchased but nothing has come through yet.
Amazon doesn't charge until release, which means zip doesn't either.
xbox and playstation should keep me occupied when the bull is over
Error at checkout: Sorry, we couldn’t find a Zip pay account associated with this mobile number.
Phone number matches, put in code and still get this.
Any work arounds?
Another comment above said Zip were having problems communicating with Amazon
I am having this issue as well so called up Zip. They said its an ongoing technical issue and the customer service rep will contact me via email once my account is fixed.
Probably worth calling them up so they can add your account to the list of affected accounts. Just hoping its sorted before they sell out :/
Yeah, same thing here. Super frustrating.
Possibly sale on Xmas down to $599
I'll wait and tell you the good news!
Might have stock shortage issues leading up to xmas
yeah have fun waiting until Xmas 2022
Do you know how supply and demand works? Maybe do some research.
You might be waiting a long time!! Not many consoles drop this much after launch within a few months
0% chance it will drop in price At Christmas the only thing they will do is add bundled games or accessories
Literally 0% chance
Absolutely no chance this happens, but good luck in dreamland.
Who is getting the disc version over the digital edition other than if you have a compatible game library from PS4 or if you want a blue ray player?
ive never owned a playstation. Coming from xbox. So i think im going for digital as i dont have any ps4 games or anything. Just dont know if ill regret it
