They accidentally put them on their website last week for 19.99.

The website went down an hour later when they realised.

I got 2 for 40 bucks. winnaaaa

Did they honor the sale and have you actually received them yet?

Mistakes like this end up with the buyer getting a refund 99% of the time.

haha, yep i have both of them in my posession.

Here's an amusing email they sent out a few days after. They accidentally CC'd it to everyone that bought them too, instead of BCC. 125 people. 125 x 2 (at least) = a trillion dollars wasted by dick smith

^^ After the PR fiasco they probably didn't have much of a choice but to honour it.

Was it IBM that made the same mistake many years ago? Sent an email out trying to tell people their orders for a mispriced laptop were being refunded but CC'd instead of BCC'd the entire contact list instead?

Anyone need any 160GB 3.5" SATA drives? I have about 25 of them that I need to get rid of. Also still have a pile of 2GB DDR3 SODIMMs (some 1333MHz and some 1066MHz)

Reasonable offers considered on the drives, no DDR2 unfortunately, would actually be worth something...

I think you need to get lucky with the timing. Sometimes there are bidiots online (just coined that, will never use it again) and sometimes you get nothing. That's why I sold mine for a quick hundred instead of gambling on an auction.

Harvey Norman at Martin Place, Sydney is selling cheap USB flash drives -

4GB Toshiba flash drives $4

8GB Verbatim flash drives $7

However I don't know how long the sale is on. The sale signs say 'One Day Only' but the signs have been up for the last 3 days. I bought the $7 8GB ones on Monday and Tuesday and there were still bargain bins full of them.
