Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a All-in-One printer today. It was advertised on Dick Smiths website at $44. I did a check online to see if it was available at the nearest store and it was. Caught the bus to the shopping centre, selected the $44 printer and put it on the counter where I was told it couldn't be sold without the extended warranty which made the price $59.95 (same price as at the Big W store in the same centre). I complained loudly that the website was misleading, and that I had no need of an extended warranty. The guy ended up agreeing to sell me the extra black and whilt ink cartridge I wanted to buy for $14 instead of its usual cost of $22.95.

Still all up it cost me about $7 more that planned.
