At the Manners Street branch:


I saw them at $8, went back two weeks later to get a couple of packs, back up to $19.99. (passed on the)


Went last week and they were back down to $9.99. Picked up two packs.


Picked up a 4 pack of Epson inkjet cartridges today, $22 off usual price of $114.98.


I notice their sales labels on says 20% off the *original* marked price.  What was the *original* marked price I wonder?

20% of printer inks.   Only looked at HP inks & 20% off probably makes it cheaper than Warehouse Stationery are selling them.


So not spectacular but...

Went down to Riccarton Mall DSE today. 20%-40% off everything. I didn't have a real good look and didn't notice any products with 40% off. Mostly just 20% off though...


I'll wait until nearer to the end to see if they discounts are better.

Popped into the store next to the office yesterday (Elizabeth St, Tauranga).

Most discounts 20%-30%, didn't see anything notable in the 40% category.

Purchased the remaining Beats Studio wireless headphones at 30% off, cheaper than buying in USD and reshipping to NZ...

The small number of posts in this thread is a good indication that their sale needs to get a lot better and fast!!

If anyone goes into a store and sees the fancy looking speaker cables with a decent discount, please post here. That and AA and AAA's are about the only useful things left there that I would want.

Store in palmy seemed dead when I went in. Nothing of particular interest.

I picked up a UE Boom 2 last weekend 20% off, $214.40. Lowest price on the price spy history. Nothing else much in there mostly over priced phone cables and cases.

The Invercargill store has a whole wall fill of cables and ph cases where there once were xboxs and Playstation games. Everything here is cheaper at harvey norman. They had a few big screen tvs on back wall but didn't seem greatly discounted. Only 3 customers in store and 2 staff.

Be interesting to see how much ends up at the Appliance Shed or other fire sale sites places post close down, where they would have to provide a warranty you won't get now with Dick Smith.

I bought Logitech x300 speaker sometimes in January - before it goes under the receivership. It was only $62 then. Now their 20% off is $92. Go figure.

I'm wanting another Bluetooth speaker - will keep close eyes of this thread. Thanks guys.

Edit: the current price as of 5th March - 20% off is $103.20! ***facepalm***
