So I've managed to negotiate a deal on a new TV, speakers and wall mount - a pretty significant purchase in my books - and when i click the provided JB Hi-Fi Direct link (basically agreed shopping cart) JB gift cards and coupons don't work.
Problem with gift cards? Nope. Gift card balance check online and instore say it working.
Problem with the webpage shopping cart (not via JB Direct SMS chart)? Nope, but none of my discounts apply totalling about $1000.
No worries, I'll just pop down in-store… wait we are in lockdown and the stores are not accepting payments (no customers inside).
Apparently, this is an issue which has being ongoing for about 2 weeks.
Only reason this is real pain is I've been saving my Amex points to spend on this purchase, and they are not significant gift cards.
Vent over. Enjoy your weekends.
