    Received refund a few mins ago .. out of stock
    They weren't going to honour it !

  •  

    Also got a refund - shame as I would have bought other deals that have since expired :(

  •  

    refunds coming through

    Refund. Selling out of stock items. Bastards.

      I suspect "out of stock" is their code for price error

    "Out of stock"… ie "we were supposed to apply a $5 dollar discount but Chandler entered this into the wrong field… however we have "restocked" and you can purchase for $35…"

    They are out of stock when it's $5 but they are in stock when it's $33.80 (save $36?). They should at least admit that it was a price error.

      The $33.80 price you see on the page now is if you were buying direct from Catch.

        Sorry, my bad. Keep forgetting Catch is like a marketplace these days.

  •  

    Still available on the Bing Lee site for $5 although only select stores by the looks of it. Shame that they can't use these to supply the people who placed legitimate orders via Catch.

  •  

    I too received a refund.

    Got a refund :(

    Boo hiss. Bad form

      Indeed. If they're still selling at Binglee store for $5 a pop, they should at least honour some of the orders until sold out.

  •  

    Only store in NSW that has stock in port macquarie - and it has 1 and it could be a stock error :D

    Order cancelled. Talk about bad business. No wonder I never use Catch. It feels like a flea market in an outer suburb.

    •  

      First thing to do is to revoke upvote.

      •  

        You can't.

        •  

          Why? I did revoke.

          •  

            @Neoika: Mmmm, doesn't allow me add or revoke. Apologies and thought must have been locked or something.

    Fair to say I can say I told you so to a few people.

    •  

      I clicked and bought before there were any comments. It was worth a shot anyhow ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      •  

        Bing Lee being out of stock online was a good indication their stock levels at Catch hadn't been updated. You being one of the first orders certainly enforces that theory.

  •  

    Think I measured these awhile back and came to conclusion they consume about $30/year in standby energy use, per device.

    •  

      Measured what?

      •  

        Power usage

        •  

          These only use around 2 or 3 watts last I checked and certainly not 12watts. 18kWh give or take per year.

    • +1 vote

      That doesn't sound right. That would put them around 12W (based on WA rates of 28c)
      They are supposed to be around 2W so I think more like $5 a year.

    Refunded what a gip!

  •  

    I only got refunded 99 cents.. I'm so confused

  •  

    I paid via giftcard and got refunded in store credits. How do I get them to refund it back in my gift card.

  •  

    bought 2 and got refund. worth the effort to keep up bargain spirit.

    Just got an email confirming it was due to a price error
    “technical error occurred which resulted in items being priced at below cost”

    Pretty disappointing given they were selling it for $5 from physical Bing Lee stores (and still have that price on their site)

    Question: Did anyone actually manage to get one for $5 from Bing Lee direct or were they also cancelled/refunded?

  •  

    Not cool! what a catch, Binglee is advertiseing them at 5 probably to lure people into stores.

  •  

    Catch are such scammer. They processed the refund as store credits and now they took the store credits away. I called them and they refuse to give me my credits back.

    •  

      Check your bank account - mine turned up there

      •  

        I paid via gift cards. They refund via store credits.
