Kogan challenges JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman with free TV offer

Find a TV cheaper at JB or Harvey's, and get a free Kogan

Online-only electronics retailer Kogan has started a new campaign to publicise the low cost of its TVs, promising freebies if consumers can find a cheaper equivalent TV advertised by bricks-and-mortar stores Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi.

The just-launched page on Kogan's Web site boasts that if Kogan doesn't beat its main competitors' prices, "it's free" — in other words, if you can find a cheaper TV in JB Hi-Fi or Harvey Norman than on the Kogan Web site, and the specs (screen size, screen type, resolution, features, et cetera) are equivalent, you'll get it free from Kogan. The full terms and conditions are available on Kogan's site, but here's the gist:

"If you find a better advertised price for a LCD or LED TV at Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi, we will give you the equivalent Kogan TV for FREE - Some Conditions apply - like the TV has to have the same features such as panel type (ie. LED or LCD) and the same size (32", 42", 46" etc) and same resolution & features (HD, Full HD, built-in DVD, etc)...

"No empty promises. No making you run around rings just to get the market price. See the equivalent TV cheaper in either of these big retailers and you'll get the Kogan for FREE! When most retailers price match, they say things like 'we don't match online prices' - our offer covers both the in-store and online prices of Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi."

This deal is unlikely to lose Kogan any money — its prices are generally already rock-bottom for what you'd pay for a TV — but it's another piece of publicity in a long line of stand-out stunts.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
