  • Did you have to show membership at OW to get pm?

    • +2

      Not needed.
      Just mentioned costco does sale and the OW staff just checked if they accept costco price.
      They confirmed and got the phone on Nov 28.

      Depends on store. Staff may ask you to show Costco membership card. Luckily I have Costco membership so they price matched it.

    • +8

      Whoever did was obviously a rookie staff or checkout staff who couldn't be bothered (I've had those before). OW doesn't / shouldn't do Costco acc. to their price beat policy so your mileage will vary. They certainly do not care about the membership card. That is like showing student ID and asking to price match Apple/Samsung Education store.
      Although I have seen some managers are happy do a little discount even going against the policy to retain a happy customer if the price difference is not much (I doubt this happening with the new iPhone where the profit is minimum).
      And others look for everyway of rejecting the price beat by staying within their policy.

        It wasn't rookie staff but a manager.
        The staff checked with the manager and the manager checked if OW accept costco price.
        After that they confirmed OW accepts costco price.
        Bought from Northmead OW.

          Well the manager obviously didn't do his check or just pretend to do a check and just gave in.

            @binary1001: Possibly it depends on which OW as you mentioned.
            Important thing is that I've got the phone with the price beat.
            I wish others get the same discount.
            I've been addicted to ozbargain, and I wish I can contribute too. :)

              @josephs: You are right. Any discount we can get our hands-on is always welcome.

      • It depends on the store. But Costco isn't explicitly rejected. It's a grey area that isn't even clarified properly behind the scenes so it's effectively up to the store.
        For what it's worth, managed to get the price beat in Melbourne.

        • Commercial quantities and pricing (i.e. a reduced price not available to the public and including Apple Reseller Education pricing.)

          Above lines are from the Price Beat Guarantee exclusions. I would say Costco price is not available to the public, it's members only.

    save $50?

      Actually $115 discount because I bought from OW.
      This is better than 10% christmas special discount from apple shop

      • +2

        Wait! I have never seen 10% discount from Apple on iPhones.

    • +6

      saving $50 from apple is like saving $500 from others

      • +1

        true.
        apple didn't do sale in this black friday, so I think it is the best deal so far.

        • the 15% off at coles and woolies was the best

      • Better than the $15 discount I got from JB for the pro last week.

  • +19

    I don't trust it. The first iphone took years to develop, but this one was developed in under a year, how do we know it's safe?!? and I heard it has GPS and wifi chips in it. Wake up sheeples!!

    • +2

      You’re right. I heard this also had 5G as well so it totally evil.

    • +4

      Why are so many young athletes dropping dead since the iPhone 13 came out? Can’t be a coincidence….fake news lamestream media covering this up.

      • Sad!

      • Really, source?

        • -1

          I’m taking this as one giant piss take.

        • he's taking the mickey out of what some antivax talking heads have been saying.

            @simulacrum: The fact you have to explain this is alarming. :|

              @SickDmith: Maybe they're just fortunate enough not to be exposed to any of those misinformation mongers on their social feed. I have one unfortunate bloke that keeps posting this nonsense, I've left him on there just to keep my finger on the pulse, but lord its infuriating sometimes.

        • Come on now, haven’t you noticed these last few months all those people clutching iPhone 13s and walking around like robots??? It’s mind control directly from 1 Apple Walk Way, Cupertino, California, US of A.

    • Thanks for the laugh.

    If you managed to grab some TCN cards, it would be around $1146.65 from JBs. ($1349.00 x 0.85)

  • +2

    Best solution is 15% off gift card trick, or Telstra mobile plan + jb/tgg gift card

    • What’s the 15%off gift card trick?

  • +1

    Just saying, is 15% off Home giftcard (JB/goodguys) or 15% apple gift card a better way to purchase iPhone?

  • +1

    If they don’t price beat Costco they should price beat the dicksmith price ($1330), I did that earlier today. I’m a bit sad that I could’ve saved $30 😂

    Pro is the way to go

    A way better than S21 or similar

    Officeworks had this ($1299 for iPhone 13 mini,128GB) as their advertised price last week (on Thursday, at least). I rang Apple and they matched the price, and I paid $950 of it with gift cards I bought a few weeks ago carrying a 15% rebate in Woolworths dollars.

    But things have changed: last year I bought a MacBook Pro 16" on Black Friday and Apple matched the discount chains' price, PLUS I got the Apple Black Friday bonus ($200 gift card) and I negotiated all this with a person with an Australian accent. This year Apple had a $70 gift card for and iPhone 12 mini purchase, but when I rang I got someone in an offshore call centre (I had to spell out almost everything, even "@me.com") and, while they would give me $1000 off an iPhone 12 mini ($972), they wouldn't also give me the gift card. I opted for the bigger saving on the 13 mini and to, for once in my life, have the latest phone.

      "an Australian accent" omg you are really like how did you find one in support with that kind of accent. Like Im not sure they have a landline in outback!

  • Now I know - if I see a guy with a new Iphone I know he spent weeks trying to get price matched and save $50. And he has a huge protector around the phone to be able to tradein it later lol

    Got one from Glen Waverley OW for $1234.

    Chadstone OW claimed they don't price beat CostCo but they didn't have stock so didn't bother pushing the point.

  • +1

    I got the 13 Pro Max 256gb ( graphite) from OW - Werribee by doing a price beat with Dick smith for 1807$

    • Nice work… that’s the model I’m looking for. I’m seeing it on dicksmith for $2003 though..

      • +1

        The discount is applied when you add the item to the cart and go to checkout ..

        • Thanks! I’ll try my luck tomorrow!

        • Alas, no dice on the price match at Chadstone officeworks
