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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
