Australia: coming lower prices for Canon equipment?

(1/4) > >>

I don't know what Canon equipment David Jones sells but from this story:

In its “Lower Everyday Prices” program, David Jones has cut prices up to 50 per cent for hundreds of products from brands such as Estee Lauder, Clinique, 7 for all Mankind, marc by marc jacobs, Guess, Scanpan, Canon and Bose.

The price reductions are the result of months of negotiations with international suppliers to bring local prices into line with the global market since the company announced a cost price harmonisation program in March.

... I wonder if those negotiations and price reductions will be seen at other retailers?

"Up to 50% off" on "Canon products" could mean 10% off the X Mark I Calculator Mouse and the Cyan Ink Cartridge for the PIXMA MG3120 only.  ;)

But here's to hope!

"Up to 50% off" generally means the majority of offers are 10% off.... (or less)

Also, David Jones will generally not stock any "interesting" Canon products.

According to The Courier-Mail, you can register here for details - http://www.clickfrenzy.com.au/

DJs occasionally have good specials, but their range is very basic / low end and may not interest most people here.  But there are a couple of hundred larger retailers involved, so will be interesting to watch.  Its good to see local retailers embracing the web rather than complaining about slipping sales and advocating for regulations to hamper imports.  Although I notice Harvey Norman is conspicuously absent from the list of participating retailers.
