OzBargain competitions are BACK! As OzBargain turns SIX next month, we will be having a few competitions for a bit of community fun.

Now, let me introduce the OzBargain Photo Comp.

What is this?

I know you are all proud OzBargainers who spend large chunks of time everyday reloading OzBargain, checking out the latest deals, collecting all the freebies, queueing up outside stores and calling up OfficeWorks for a price match.

I want you to share your pride with the rest of the OzBargain community and with the world by taking photos of you "Being an OzBargainer". It might be a picture including all your loot (for example this one here), or you being first in the queue at a local DickSmith closing down sale, or redeeming your 10th Subway 6incher, or … Do show us the creative side of being an OzBargainer!

It would be a plus if we can find both

  • OzBargain, the OzBargain logo or anything that can be identified as OzBargain.
  • Your OzBargain username.

in your photos.

How do I enter?

To enter into this competition, you must be an OzBargain user (obviously) and you will need to:

  • Upload a photo you take by either using OzBargain Media Uploader or another image hosting website.
  • Post a link here or send the URL to [email protected].
  • Multiple submissions are allowed.
  • Submissions must be made before 31 October 2012 23:59PM AEST (DST).

We will also upload your photos to our Facebook page photo albums. Those photos will be judged by their creativity and how much an OzBargainer you are :)

Edit: Facebook Album for Photo Comp Oct 2012

What's the prize?

3 winners will be picked by the OzBargain Moderators on 1 November 2012 — one winner and two runner ups. Total prize $400.

  • Winner — $200 gift voucher.
  • Runners Up — $100 gift voucher each.

I figured that it's probably better to give out gift cards or shopping vouchers than giving away "gadgets" (like our 2008 Birthday Comp). The winner of the prizes can choose which gift voucher/cards they want. For example:

After the winners are determined, I'll contact the winners via email to work out the choice of prizes and delivery details.

    My photo, Is this okay for the competition? just did it in paint, is my name too small?

    Basically, the story behind this photo is, on my birthday i went to the list of birthday deals wiki and attempted to get the most things i could get for free on my birthday. Got the subway deal, drove around to 3 different boost juices and got a different boost each time, and then finally to brumby's for my birthday muffin :). Ended up getting more "Happy Birthday" wishes from the staff at those outlets than from my friends ;P

    • +14

      Great photo. Looks like you need a deal on car seat repairs though. ;)

      • +3

        Hahaha, or seat covers, cost me less to just cover up the damage :)

  • +16

    I just want to see a photo of jv lol

    • +1

      The illusive jv? Not a chance :P

    • Didn't he post a photo of himeself in a cycling outfit sometime ago? That was an eye-opener! Now where's that post?…

      • please post the link here if you find it!!

        • +3

          AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!! Can't find that post dangit! Jv, stop posting so many comments!

          Here's the post: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/45856
          Not sure if it's actually jv though.

        • Hahaha!! That's the one, thanks 44watt!

          Jv, is that you?

        • +1

          Looks like a Collingwood supporter in the pic for sure :-P

    • +7

      He probably won't enter because there'll be some reason why this is NOT a competition.

  • Thanks mods and Scotty, could be interesting! Maybe this could be pinned on the main page, similar to how the recent Brisbane gathering was listed? The more the merrier! :)

    • +2

      Good idea. Have put a notice up.

  • It's on Facebook now. Only 2 entries so far — one from @mrhorseham. The other one from @yashik, which I can't work out whether the theme of the photo comp has been understood properly…

  • +7

    Here are my submissions!

    Here is the Pizza Hut deal:

    Got all of the following for $5.50! My brother is passed out in this after being told how much he had to eat, all thanks to his OzBargaining brother ;)

    Here is my other submission:

    Got them for the discounted prices of $139 each!

  • +12

    Hi scotty,

    Here is my submission (also emailed it).

    The photo is of all the wine deals that Ozbargain had several months ago. I got enough to spell the word OZBARGAIN (for next to nothing in cost). Plus I price matched the Google Nexus 7 tablet with Officeworks for about $220, $100 less than RRP(with delivery). P.S. It says Happy 6th Birthday!



    Edit — updated with right spelling

    • Argh I was wondering what's that thing showing OzBargain Happy 6th Birthday down at the right-bottom corner. Do you remember which wine deals you got all those bottles from? Which shop?

      • +1

        Managed to track it down… although I do believe there was one more deal. It was all within a week or two of each other!

        http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/69141 (twin pack for $5 delivered - it also came with a dozen "bin end" wines which was a nice surprise)
        http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/68674 ($50 Cracka voucher with no minimum spend! - I may have made my gf also order one to her house and then kept it for myself :P )

    • +2

      Top ozbargin skills!

    • Love it!

  • +1

    My submission:

    DickSmith Clearance Sale: Which I was first in queue but don't have a photo…

    This is what I collected :): http://upload.ozbargain.com/2012/10/11/9535_3059771015066101…

    As a true OzBargainer. Before I sold them on eBay I also redeemed the Cash Back offer from Microsoft, so really the HDD I paid $5 for than sold for $60 on eBay. The headphones and what-not I also claimed back.

  • +1

    Hi scotty

    here is my submission:

    The infamous coles circle voucher which deal was taken down.
    Grabbed 12 ice cream + 7 cookies from multiple stores

    Photo shown only 6 boxes of ice creams.
    As per the voucher condition, try the product and post a review. Here we go:
    1 ice cream was delicious
    2… still OK
    after 3 boxes of them…. getting sick of it
    But, a true ozbargainer wouldn't stop at nothing on getting more freebies (especially an unpublished deal)


    thanks to the original poster and http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/74617

    Yo Scotty
    Here is my 1st submission:

    The picture shows what happens when a DSM (deal seeking missile) is enhanced with an Ozbargain sub-system. All jokes aside, it has almost gotten to the point where, every new piece of hardware I've gotten over the last year was a result of Ozbargain. Thank You Ozbargain, I do appreciate it. My life would be poorer without you ;P Here's my loot.

  • Hi Scotty.

    My first submission:

    The picture showsall my ozbargained loots:

    DJ Hero 2 Party Bundle (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/64905)
    Truth or Lies bundle PS3 with microphones (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/56377)
    Apple TV (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/72215)
    Belkin Chef Stand + Stylus for iPad (I got it from big W when they had a pricing error, couldnt find the deal any more though :( )

    My 13" Macbook pro (ozbarained from http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/72506), on the screen showing my first post
    . Although I had only 4 votes but the highlight is that one comment says
    "You'd have to be a mug to pay this price" LOL…one of my colleagues started calling me Mug after that , it made my day :)

    Anyway in my opinion,

    A True Ozbargainer will always read the comments of a deal :)
    of course they will support their own post :p (Kogan Camera Lens Travel Mug http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/78768)

    Thanks for making this site happening for 6 years now! Keep up the good work :)

  • Rightio, here's my submission


    Unlike some others, I DID NOT SELL THEM ON EBAY! I gave the extra copy of Halo 3 ODST to a friend and the rest was all mine. The Tony Hawks Ride skateboard made a very good and cheap TV dinner tray!

    Also the battery that came with the Wii Fit pack actually fits in the skateboard!

  • Happy 6th Birthday OzBargain!


    Thanks for all the savings over the year … :-)
    In case you want to print this - please don't forget to print in B/W and eco mode as I have some colour in the pic.

    • +1

      Ha thanks. I need more $9 Dell Printer deals to print them in full colour :) Otherwise, they'll just stay in digital format on the web.

      • Haha … thought about the 9$ printer deal … (I didn't even order it - have 2 working printers so no need for it).
        By the way … the 6 is made out of 5 cent coins … as every little saving counts :-).

    My submission here: http://upload.ozbargain.com/2012/10/14/9557_ozbargain_comp_e…

    The last thing i bought recently was the Canon 600D from Kogan. It was on sale for $579 and by any reason, i got free shipping which arrive to my door after exactly 2 days! This is the fastest shipment i've ever seen (Even it was a glitch! Lucky me)! And it still not unboxed yet, haha

    Here's my submission:
    (Photo taken on the day of the sale.)

    Lined up nice and early for the Dick Smith Closing down sale, and scored the only 2 X-box 360's they had left in store for $100 each. Old models though - one was a delivery order that was cancelled and the other had its controller battery missing.

    Story was: About 6-7th in line; store opened and everybody dashed like mad to the aisles. Friend of mine was smart and advised that we go straight to the counter instead - avoiding the crowd gone mad in the aisles. We just requested for the X-boxes which we knew were probably kept at the back, as opposed to in the empty boxes people were fighting over. As the first in queue, staff was (still, and unknowingly) super friendly and got them out for us, and we both ended up with the only 2 consoles they had in the entire store! Proceeded to leave store at 8:05am.

    Only time I ever felt what it was like to win an OzB lottery! =D

    Many thanks to this site and all its contributors - mods and members,
    I love this community.

    Happy 6th Birthday OzBargain!

    Howdy crew,

    Here is the photo of myself (2nd guy in the line from the left holding Starburst), in line for the $2 Samsung Galaxy S2.


    They conveniently snapped the photo right when a pretty sheila was rushing past us, while us men appear to be eye-googling out a bargain.

    I am still using the $2 S2 (with my half price XL battery from the Telstra shop - listed on OzBargain)

    My Great Wall Of Ozbargain

    • Too much hungry jacks free shake and win offers (This doesn't even measure how many freebies I got from HJ), KFC vouchers, load of other freebies!!! /brbneedtodiet
      -2x OMEGA FISH OIL LOL and the Calcium (which i'm still taking to this day daily) and bodybuilding.com (Orbi measuring tape + 2 shirts) free postage deal
      -FREE 1.25L PEPSI next woolies deal.
    • FREE OLAY makeup cream + head massager thing I bought for 15c + JUNK. Got heaps more but it's either already down my body or given away as a presents…
      Got the KLM airline passport tag (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/73750) under that disgusting BLK sample black water.

    Gotta be thankful for the ozbargain spirit though - Got so much freebies from fastfoods, countless 6inch subways + spammed those free 2x whoppers free tipping during those months at the three hungry jacks outlets from home and to the CBD for uni each and everyday.. yep a very broden act here :P) - atkin bars and endless reviews on items throughout all the deals.


    This is another photo I am not proud of. Woke up 6am for the biggest dick'ed smith sale in sefton park SA. Huge lineup with no stock.

    My entry: http://upload.ozbargain.com/2012/10/25/9657_img_1266-001.jpg

    It's a bit of a different take on what being an OzBargainer means - sometimes it's not (just) about what you can get, but (also) what you can give, and the people you meet along the way. This is a photo of me and the 25 other people who came along to the inaugural OzBargain Brisbane meetup that I organised (with a bit of help from some mods).

    The OzBargain name is not in that shot, but can be seen in the first photos of my event album on dropbox. My username is actually in the photo, but I've pixelated it and other names that were visible in the original shot.

  • My Creative OzBargain Photo Entry:


    I got the free Baby & Toddler Sample Bag from Coles via this link: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/82423. It was a great post!


  • Worth a shot!
    Something different.

  • 2 more days to go! I've uploaded most photos onto our Facebook album:


    Do submit yours quickly rather than leaving to the last minute :)

  • Thank you OzB and the community for saving me money so I can continue to pay the rent!
    Happy six years!!!


  • Okay I'm the last minute kind of person so here's my own submission :)


    "Being an OzBargainer" to me pretty much means working on OzBargain everyday these days. Here is a show of my "workbench" with many gears bought from sales I spotted on OzBargain (including the Galaxy Nexus phone I used to take the photo).

  • Ok a little late but better than never


    • Where's the Doctor?

  • Happy 6th Birthday OzB!
