I was successful in price beating it at Officeworks (where it is currently still listed at $338), which brought the cost down to $251.75. The person I spoke to on the phone said because it was more than 25% below the Officework’s price, the price match would have to been confirmed and would take a while for the order confirmation (which it did – I got the price beat at 10am, didn’t get the order confirmation until 12:45pm).
To price beat it, you just need to tell them the Officeworks product name (“Samsung 2TB Portable Solid State Drive T5”), the Amazon product number (B074X1P1MS), and tell them that the model number (MU-PA2T0B/WW) is the same. (I was told it’s online-only, so you can’t price beat in store, but you get free metro delivery or click&collect included in the price beat).
I currently already own a 500gb T5 (since 2017) and a 1tb T7 (since last year), and I’ve very happy with both. Essentially the T7 is a better bet if you value read/write speeds, and the T5 is better if you’d prefer more storage per dollar spent – but both offer (equally) outstanding portability without risking data loss, reliability & durability compared to portable hard drives.
Currently 0% cashback at Cashrewards for this Amazon product category, but you can always get 3% off Amazon AU giftcards from Suncorp Rewards etc. if you’re unable to price beat it at Officeworks.
This isn’t the lowest price it’s been (got down to around ~A$200 with eBay Plus deals in the past iirc), but it’s still a good deal if you want a 2tb portable SDD and you want it sooner rather than later.
