Think this looks like a good deal. JB Hi-Fi link. Warehouse Stationary Link (For Price Match). Cash back info. Think that this is perfectly fine. Please let me know if there is a floor in this deal.

Nicely spotted!  The models are slightly different so WS will likely not price match.  It's a shame this model does not use the same ink as my one at home (though I would feel guilty wasting a printer).

Warehouse Stationary might still do it, worth a try (they probably won't).

Guessing the WH at the end of the model means the model is exclusive to the Warehouse. It sucks how these companies have these price match policies, but they can be impossible to be honoured, as these big chains have exclusive model codes, meaning they don't sell the exact same models.

 

 

 

Edit: The WH looks to be the white model, and the BK is the black. So they look to be the same apart from the colour. But guessing they will try to get out of honouring it by saying the model codes don't match.

Yes I've come across this with some power tools supplied to M10 vs Bunnings where the 'bundle' was just slightly different between the chains.  Brassed me off.

Can't see one. Have a look at the image I posted on ChoiceCheapies. (It won't allow anybody to see it if they click through and I'm too lazy to upload it anywhere else.

For me, it would have been my conscience!

Available in-store though. Does JB Hi-Fi do Click & Collect. $6.50 for a printer isn't bad.

None that I know of. You could always claim them separately.

It simply gives the illusion that they will price match for many products when infact many products will never qualify, due to being exclusive to that particular retailer. I presume one reason they do have exclusive products, is that it does prevent them having to price match, but it isn't good for the consumer.   You could argue that they are identical apart from the code on the box though. I don't like companies that do this, but I always feel good when I beat them at their game, and do get it at the discounted rate honoured.

Last time I tried to get them to price match JB Hifi, they said that the offer was a limited supplies, even though it wasn't stated on the advert that that was the case. So good luck trying to get them to price match it, as their one has a lot of fine print/
