Cheers! Would not have thought of that!

Thanks for the replies everyone. Unfortunately, I've committed the cardinal OzB sin of being tardy, so I've missed out on the great...

Same price at Amazon, and free delivery for Prime members....

You can return within 14 days, even if you use the product; ie not just opened the box.

The other option is to set it up in the garage - has been quite effective for me.

Get them fitted at The Athlete’s Foot - they’ve got black school/work shoes as well. The beauty of this is that they do a...

IKEA eastern states is a separate franchise; hence the pricing difference. In fact the staff uniform was also different at the Adelaide...

Plenty of stock left at Doncaster [VIC - 3108] as at 9pm Friday; I estimate at least 40 remaining.

Hear, hear!

Asking for a friend? ;)

Sorry to hear; I was wondering how you’d gone with the interview. However spackbace’s advice will definitely stand you in good stead...

Thanks for the tip - the iPhone is certainly more tempting!
