[NSW] Free Face Masks @ Central Station and Railway Square

242

Was walking to Central via Railway Square.
Transport staff are handing out free face masks.

Railway Square on that island strip bus stop, George St side.
Central, just before the escalator heading to Platform 16 to 23 from the Grand Concourse!

Probably got about 5pc between the two staff I met on the way to my train.

    Only a bargain if you use it.

    In Melbourne these are more intended as a "if you forgot your one" rather then a free for all.

      I think that’s the idea, almost inclined to downvote this as people shouldn’t go out of their way to grab one if they’re already stocked up.

        Oh yeah obviously not go out of your way to get 3pc (worth 30c in value maybe?).

        It was more of, 'if you are in the area, keep a look out for masks! 😊

          If you're that desperate and can't afford masks, walk in to the local Big W/Dan Murphys etc and someone is bound to have one.

          If you're thinking about the 'gain' in dollar terms, you're doing it wrong.

    They can’t sell them now so nay as well give em away

    These are also at a few Dan Murphys I've visited. Masks for anyone.

    Please Ozbargain, don't broden this and leave it for the people who need it?

    This reminds me of the "deal" someone posted like 6 months ago of face masks being given out for free in Apple stores. \o/

    Also encountered them at the ferry wharf in circular quay.

    My local woolies was handing these out when masks were first made mandatory in Sydney. Now, if you turn up without a mask, you can ask for one at the service desk up front and they give it to you.

      How about they charge $1 since you don't think free is a deal?

        Silly comment!

        A deal is 2 zingers for $6. Or a kickass TV for an unbelievable price. Taking the piss over handouts of a disposable mask is not.

          How is that silly? So if I don't have a mask taking one for free is a bad deal? Holy shit. I'll take a free dose of COVID then.

            @Clear: Another silly comment.

    Please don't abuse this. You save 5c on a mask you don't need. The gov probably pays some company $1 a mask, which of course comes from our taxes.

    What's the trick to get them for free? You have to not be wearing one first usually.

    If you don't have one then you get a fine.
