    is it us$ or aud$?

    •  

      USD. Google says AUD is stronger than USD so this should be less than 129.99 in Australian Dollars but that depends on how you're paying and your bank rates. I see the 28degrees Mastercard being mentioned a lot on OzBargain. You don't pay international fees with that card. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can respond.

      •  

        Actually 28Degrees Mastercard fees are about an extra 1% over than the current rate on xe.com. Still 1% is a lot better than the 3%+ the banks charge and 4% that ripoff Amazon and Paypal/Ebay charge for currency conversions. I even managed to get one 5 years ago (with a $1000 credit limit) when I only had a very low income.

      •  

        If you can get a Hyatt Visa card (via Chase bank), they charge no fees for foreign currency transactions (and the foreign exchange rates are good), but I don't know if they are available worldwide.

      Works out to be ~AUD $133 inc shipping IF you use a card like the 28 degree mastercard AND choose to pay in USD.

  •  

    It clearly states USD on the title and description!

      Sorry. This is not his fault. I edited the title after replying to his comment, to make it clear that the price was in USD.

      You didn't have any problems sending to an Australian address?

      Amazon's telling me "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order."

  • +2 votes

    Damn, you have to be quick. The ones shipped from Amazon appear to be sold it now and "OnSale" does not ship won't ship this Internationally so I guess it is now expired if someone cares to confirm/update this deal, please.

    I found this deal for the same hard drive at an online site called retailblue.com :

    http://www.retailblue.com/wdby8l0020bbk-pesn-western-digital...

    Price for the HDD is listed as $99.80 with shipping to Queensland costing $11.00, thus totalling $110.80.

    However, I've never heard of retailblue.com. A search indicates that they're based in Bondi Junction in NSW. Has anyone had any dealings with this mob?

      If that is legit it deserves its own post

    •  

      that sounds too good to be true! :O

      • +3 votes

        Yeah, I agree - does sound too good to be true. I just emailed them to ask them to confirm that it was indeed the portable 2TB HDD. The part number checks out. I've got the phone number and address of the company. However, I don't want to pay up and then receive a powered (i.e. NON-portable) HDD. So I'm gonna wait for their response before I part with my hard-earned. I'll post the reply back here when I get one.

      There's no bad 'posts by others' on their facebook page, so that's a good sign.

      They mustve heard you and quickly scrambled to fix their mistake.

        Frig! Either they're checking their emails moment-to-moment, or they're monitoring Ozbargain! How the heck did that happen so quickly? Dammit!

  •  

    I personally don't like the black color but for the price this is an amazing deal! :)

    Too bad I just bought a 2TB WD Silver 2.5" at JB for $179 last week. :'(

  •  

    Should be marked as expired as it is no longer available via Amazon.

    • -3 votes

      Yes it is still available. Click on "See price in cart" and you'll see the price is now $126.99. However, the reseller at that price doesn't ship to Australia. If you use shipito.com, they'll airmail it to Australia for $19.50 including insurance - that would mean a total price of $146.50.

    USD $138.87 shipped to Melbourne. Amazon expedited.

    I always pay in USD though because amazon's currency converter is different to Aussie banks converter. So I end up saving 3-4 bucks everytime. :P

    $138.87 USD will convert to $135 AUD approx.

    •  

      deathjr, how did you get it to ship to Melbourne. When I put my Brisbane address in, it returns with :

      "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order."

      •  

        Make sure seller is Amazon. Others won't ship to AU.

        •  

          Yeah, but how did you do that? It's giving me the company called OnSale as the only option.

          -DISREGARD-

          I worked it out.

          Now $131.98 + $7.78 shipping.

        •  

          When you look up a deal on Amazon, you will always see the Amazon list price and then besides it, there will be others from retailers who're selling via Amazon.com. The trick is to find the correct Amazon list price (do a search on Amazon) and buy from there. That option will ship to your destination.

    •  

      Thanks for the tip. I had not bought from Amazon before/or in a long time due to the limited items shipping to Australia. Ordered mine for $139.19 USD incl. shipping to NSW 2035.
