shevc:Krishant007:maxeon:bmt: Yep, went in to NL on Monday to buy one, none in stock at any store other than the display models. Guy reckoned getting some on Friday. Got a call the next day, looking at up to two and a half weeks. Interestingly their website still states 3-4 days lead time.
Suppose when you're only paying $800 you can wait a little.. 2.5 weeks though, that's pushing it..
Sorry if someone mentioned, but have you tried going to Warehouse Stationary? They sell the same XT model and they even give you 5% below the Noel Leeming price using their price match policy, you just need to take the print out of the price.
I did this. I went in on sunday and asked them to price match.
The guy countered saying no Noel Leeming in Auckland has any stock and they only price match if the store has it in stock. I asked if i could read the policy - and yea it was in the policy that the store needs to have it in stock. I called up Noel Leeming and found that they had stock in the Morrinsvile store. I told the guy that they do have stock at that store (the fine print didnt say it had to be the same city).
In the end, the manager came, saw the price on the website (she just wanted to check that it wasnt an online only offer), price matched it and gave 5% off - 758 all up
YOU are lucky buster,haha
I did the same thing. Got a print out of NL offer then wen to warehouse stationary kilbirnie. The lady just looked at the flyer and said "OK ill even give you a 5% discount on top" SO sweet! Im so lucky with my HTC ONE. Totally different build quality. Reminds me of my Nexus One!
