It pays to check the pricing on any kit you buy from Dick Smith
at the moment: I bought a VHF weather receiver kit yesterday for
$49.99 and today saw it as a "Web only special" for $25. When
asking staff over the phone about the price difference, I was
told it was a different product as the catalogue number was
K-3226W and not K-3226.
Re: Check DSE kit pricing
It's confusing, because the website says "web only special" *and*
"no online orders". I queried that today at Box Hill, wanting them
to get in one of the web-only special EPROM pgmr from the stock I
knew was at the distribution centre. They spent an hour (after I'd
left) making phone calls to head office, who got them to tell me I
should *telephone* up the mail order department to order it.
So apparently "web only special" means "quote the part number to
the mail order dept by telephone". Sigh. And we still pretend to
think that humans are rational beings...
