Posted this on the website, but as the code expires today, thought I'd share it with the Geeks too.

Came across this when I was walking around their store today, and they are having a $10 off $50+ tonight.

LESS10 is the coupon code for $10 off.

http://www.dicksmith.co.nz/multifunction-scanners/canon-mg5560-multifunction-dsnz-xp6560 is the product URL.

Free click and collect, or $5 shipping.

Did a liitle research and it seemed to be badly reviewed, as already have the $9 brother printer which I haven't used often, I think I'll pass. Thanks for sharing anyway. Looking forward to more great deals :)))

It will only have starter cartridges, so you will very soon need to buy a complete set of print carts

Still, I paid full price for my canon (approx $150) and that also had useless starter carts.
Its not just the cost of replacing all the carts, its having a brand new printer rapidly run out of ink when you need to print something .

Thanks, bought one to use as scanner mainly.

A couple of notes - one can't use the scanner without installing the ink cartridges

secondly, the default photo scanning produced lots of tiny highlight artifacts, so I had to use the manual mode (right most button on the scanning utility), advanced mode, I tried a few settings, turn off unsharp mask, turn on descreen (doesn't make sense here), and remove dust set to low, the end result is ok.
