expired Diablo III Standard Edition $59 at Dick Smith

600

Seems to be the cheapest bricks and mortar seller but still the same price online anyway.

I don't think it's a dupe post because the last one is marked as expired but all the stores seem to have stock and say the special is for the foreseeable future

Historical High: $69.98 Low: $69.95

      $1 less is not worth the cost and time of driving 30 minutes further to get to BIG-W… you would spend more on fuel then $1

      Whatever stores the closest to you is the "better" deal

      •  

        See if DSE will price match BigW, or if you have an EB near you they will price match $58.

          DSE won't, or at least Macquarie wouldn't. "We don't price-match Big W on iPads or 'hot' software," he said, "We're only making 10c on that anyway."

          if they don't price match then they are making 1.10 :P

    •  

      Also, a quick mention that the price for Big W's Diablo 3 commences on the 17th of May. So it would seem that you have the opportunity cost of 2 days vs 1 dollar.
      I'd check with DSE if they'd match a price for a future catalogue, because as far as I can see from the website, it isn't actually available yet from Big W.

        Just an update. Tried to price match. DSE said they were unable to as the catalogue doesn't start until the 17th. Got it for $59. Enough of a bargain when the digital download is $79.95. :)

        I purchase my copy from Big W this morning at 9am with no problems. They said there was an embargo restricting them from putting it on the shelf until today.

      My Big W only had 6 copies in stock. And it's in a major shopping centre too.
      Went in at 9am, they opened at 8.30 and they told me they were sold out.

      Big W are using this as a luring attempt.

    not really a dupe, but abit pointless

    Big W one doesn't start til thursday either. Good if you want it today.

      The Catalogue said Thursday, but they started selling it for the $58 today

  •  

    I just got mine from DSE - click and collect. It's closer than Big W so definitely not missing the $1.

    Only annoying thing is I can't play until 4:30PM lol. It'd be nice if I could play it all day while I'm off sick from work :(

    •  

      Don't stress. The servers do not actually go live until 5pm AEST anyhow, so you have timed it perfectly.

      However with approximately 6 billion ppl trying to login at the same time, I think you have better odds of winning Div 1 lotto than getting online from the get-go. But try, you must!

      •  

        So how is that perfect timing? The servers are not live yet, and kristijan08 is unable to "play it all day" as a result of that!

        •  

          Oh right, I misread his post. Well if you're off sick, get as much rest in before 5pm AEST and hope for the best. I was thinking of suckers like me that are stuck at work until 5pm.

      •  

        alright… looks like i'm going to go do some offline-y things from 430pm.. till 7pm. because the amount of traffic coming out of australia to blizzard servers is going to choke any non-D3 internet access.

  •  

    Good deal. Ballarat Big W had none from what I could see, and no staff at the counter to ask, DSE store across the road $59.

  •  

    Good deal.
    Attempted to buy from my local BigW but no stock.
    JB Hifi Wouldnt price match (as deal was advertised starting on Thursday)
    for $1 more and no problems, i suggest going to DSE

  •  

    EB Game should price matched with DSE's price…. worth a try

    My local HN priced matched this price!~

  •  

    A couple more CE's @ JB if anyone is interested.

  •  

    Is it PC only?
    It seems to me the digital copy I saw before was Mac/PC…

    •  

      they are all mac/pc.

    •  

      as above + on the same disc.

  •  

    Got my collector's edition today (this morning). Pre-ordered it from GAME:
    http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/69071

    I reckon GAME service is good.

  •  

    can someone convince office works to stock this game so that we can price beat big W?

  •  

    Bought from DSE this morning

  •  

    I was shopping this morning and there was a Big W in the shopping centre. So I went over and they simply had all the D3s on the shelf, scanning at $58 - so I bought one.

  •  

    I bought from DSE. Their website, click and collect, email notification and up to date pricing beats all the other brick and mortars.

    Harvey's didnt email me about my pre order, couldnt confirm it on the phone, went in there and they "umm'd and ahhh'd" about price matching DSE/BigW so told em to get stuffed and went 2 mins away to DSE for a painfree transaction.

    Now just to wait for 5pm. FML, longest wait ever.

    lol it looks so stupid seeing this deal right next to the cheaper one at Big W on the front page

  •  

    Just bought the second last copy at Bankstown centro!

    •  

      bang tahn

  •  

    price matched at EB Parkmore VIC fairly easily….std price is $89.95, what a rip

    still had a few in stock

  •  

    Picked up a copy from JB Knox, price matched to BigW with no issues (didn't need a catalogue). They keep the D3 copies behind the counter in case anyone else wanders around the store for 5 mins looking for it.

    This morning I went to the DSE on Queen St (Brisbane) and got the last two out of three copies. When they scanned through it actually came through as $105 for both…so $52.50. The woman (Lee I think her name was) working there said, 'Oh, I thought they were $59', I said that I thought the same thing and she said, 'well they scanned through at $52.50 so I have to honor that'. Was a nice little win. I think the guy behind me who got the last one got it for $52.50 also. Apparently they had already sold 46 copies by 9:30am.

    Error 37!!!

  •  

    Had been ringing around. most of the stores were out of stock in Perth. But I managed to grab one copy from Centro Maddington. They still have 3 copies left.

  •  

    Has been a good day. Went down to JB, asked them to price match BigW @ $58. Ahh awesome! :) Thank you BigW! rofl.

  •  

    Thanks for this! i just reserved a copy from my local dick smith with click and collect.

  •  

    can anyone tell me if the servers are working??

  •  

    Got JB Knox City to price match this :)

  •  

    i was pre-order and still waiting :( at Dick Smith ( could take another 2 days). it better off just go to the shop and pickup for $59

    •  

      If your order is still "processing", best you call up and get this cancelled and just pick it up from a store. I read somewhere they are not delivering until end of the week - but I can't find a source to validate this claim.

      If you're doing Click and Collect, make sure it goes through properly. I did a click and collect but didnt' receive an SMS and the store didn't reserve one for me. Also happened to my friend. Nearly nerd raged when I got to the store and they ran out. Luckily another Dick smith store a few minutes walk away had a few copies left.

        My friend order the electrical copy and is start playing already :( …
