online sales that dont make sense, case in point. The site has a policy of free delivery over $40.00 . The item i usually get is usually around $43 so great, yet they now have their sale on and it has dropped to $39.50 and now i have to pay $6.00 delivery which now makes it more expensive than usual ,only a couple of dollars but still.

 

 

I once bought a handful of things at New World totalling around $26. I scanned my "club card", which awards Airpoints per $25 spent. A club card bonus deal activated and brought the total down to $24ish so I have no idea whether I earned points or not.

JBHifi advertising an item as available for delivery: (https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/whiteware-appliances/coffee-machines/delonghi/delonghi-nespresso-u-milk-coffee-machine-black/281440/ )

 

Delivery
In Stock: 
Usually ships in 1-2 days

 

Yet unable to purchase online as "NO add to cart" button exists for the item!

 

Is it "click bait" to get you to come into store?

 

Things like this really p*ss me off!

 

NO I won't come to your store!

The expectation of two major electronics stores that I would spend nearly $230 on a mouse without actually holding it in my hand and seeing how it feels. No sample on display and when asked if I could open it, told "No, then we couldn't sell it as it wouldn't be new". Seriously? We're talking top of the range here, not some $20 throw away item. I don't care if the reviews are good or, as told in one shop "I've tried them, they're great". I want to put it in my own hand and see if it fits me! At that price, I want to know it's a glove, not a loose sock!

/Rant.

25% off too. Gutted.

The increasing data retrieval activitiy I wasn't asked before & the resulting need for even trickier countermeasures to aggraver it.

Back to couriers again. I appreciate that Christmas slows things down but a package of mine has been sitting in the same place for eight days now...

Why not buy it and in the unlikely event that it's not what you expect, take it back for a refund.

The fact that manufacturers effectively abandon perfectly good products as soon as they produce something new. Not everyone has the money or desire to upgrade expensive equipment every couple of years. Yet finding support for older combinations of perfectly good devices is almost impossible.

Getting woken up by fireworks at midnight last night in an otherwise quiet suburb - and then I discovered today there's some fire ban in place!

Someone down the street thought it'd be a good idea to run their party until ~3 am. So yeah, not much sleep last night...
