    Price Matching -5% for Technology

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Recently read about Officeworks updated price matching policy which includes online store prices. They claim to match verified online store pricing and deduct another 5%.

    Apparently this includes grey and direct import prices which sounds pretty handy for any technology purchases as you get a local warranty instead of a dodgy return to base one. Doesn't include offers such as those on the Bay which use a codeword to get a % discount.

    Not sure about their current policy but it seems that in years gone by they used to stall people and stuff around especially on the phone if you called to verify stock etc for price matching.

    Might be worth doing this in person if you are going to try for a price match. Sounds a bit like what Bunnings do with their price matching. Harvey Norman also try to wiggle out of price matching and I almost got escorted out by security once when I held them to their price guarantee policy. I did get the item at the matched price but never went back to that store.

    My 3D printer is an earlier DaVinci, if you buy one beware of the proprietary filaments and the bizarre bed levelling procedure. Info available online about how to deal with both.
