    Hi,
    Im getting a 16gb touch 2nd gen next week, and im going to try to get it for the best price possible.
    JB Hifi have their prices at $398, and then when i remembered that officeworks beat prices by 5% i was very happy because i was thinking it would come down to like $378, however after calling officeworks i found that they only beat the price if its lower, however in this case it was the same, as they also sell for $398. Are there any other stores that offer a price beating scheme that will beat the price of jb hifi?
    Cheers

    Nowhere is going to offer a cheaper price on something that's the same price elsewhere. Have you tried Dick Smith? I trhink they usually have an offer where you get something bonus for the same price. Or Target or K-Mart might have it cheaper.

    No but what i am trying to find is a store that does price matching that is selling it for more than $398.
    Stupid officeworks i bet they changed their prices just after the new jb catalogue...

    No $398 is the RRP. Most stores would sell it at that. Thoughhh.. Have you tried Harvey Norman? What's the bet they'll be selling it for more.

    Check out what BigW are selling their Touches at. Like, go in store and ask them.

    I got my ipod touch 2g from JB Hifi
    they might give u a better discount if you get the 32 gb one.
    Cus wat i did was i eventually got my 32 gb ipt2g from jb at 470 bucks, and then managed to claim gst back so it ended up around 420 and this was more than half a year now!

    try find a nice sales person

    you prob might be able to get some kind of a discount on the 16 gb one regardless of what price they are selling it, jb is pretty good at giving discounts
