There's been some interesting deals in the past which have quickly evaporated due to the merchant shutting down the offer after getting OzBargained. One example is the Maccas buy five babycino get any free loyalty coffee in any size of your choice: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/449317. So I'm wondering if there were any killer deals you found in the past that you were just too greedy to share in the fear that you would miss out.
My top one was this: Before COVID, the Velocity Rewards store had a price error for Bose Home Speaker 300. It's usually worth $399 (RRP), but was priced at 2,614 points. If you equate one point to one cent, that's about $26.14. I only found it because I was trying to use up some points before they expire, so set the search to look for items under 5,000 points. I remember seeing a Priceline $10 gift card and the Bose speaker! So my dad and I snapped up one each, thinking that they're not going to honour it, but we would take our chances. Sure enough, 24 hours later, the deal was removed and it returned to the usual price 71,830.points. I never ended up posting it to OzBargain in time because I was hoping the order would first ship before realising the pricing error. I knew as soon as I posted it here there would probably be more than a thousand orders, meaning that no one's orders would ship as they wouldn't be able to fulfil them all. Sorry guys! And who knows, they may have gone into administration more quickly.
Anyone else with similar stories? Size of the deal doesn't matter. I think I got really lucky on this one.
