It’s the cheapest price I have seen yet. Maybe I’m wrong but I can’t find cheaper than that.
Wats the rpp? 1849??
Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t it better to get 5% vouchers and just buy at JB or good guys?
I’m sorry. I don’t know about that.
@guesswhat: Well through various services you can buy gift cards at 5% off, like Good Guys, JbHifi etc etc. I assumed nearly every OZB used these when buying common tech from these stores. If you are with AGL, Youi, Suncorp etc etc
You would save an extra $43 ontop of your savings.
@onlinepred: Thanks for letting me know. :). It’s a good offer then.
Or harvey norman though they dont have the iphone in sale.
I did get to price match Costco Sony X9000H with Sony Store, so potentially you can use this to price match before using discount gift card with JB Hi-Fi for further saving.
This or macbook?
i was looking at 2.7K for a 13 inch mac book pro (with 512 SDD / 16g RAM / education software bundle) – I am just getting into the apple space and finding it rather painful!
– even though this is cheaper – there is surely no way I could convince myself to spend this much on a phone (even as a business expense)
A 13′ MBP feels like far better value to me.
What does this do that an iPhone SE doesn’t?
– Larger screen
– Faster (but how much in real world usage?)
– Way better camera, but unless your use case is semi-pro shooting raw on iPhone and editing in post via lightroom. The average user is likely just uploading it to Facebook or insta to have the quality compressed out of it.
– No touch-ID (which is a deal breaker for me)
Which one do you use more?
I was tossing between the max or MacBook but I use my phone way more than my laptop so ended up buying the phone
iPhone 12 Pro Max 256GB is also $1949.99
Yeah. Costco is giving the best price so far.
Which was $1816 last week https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/595532. But this should probably have more stock than Mobileciti did
That one was a very good deal. If only I didn’t have the 128GB version already, I would have bought right away.
before paying up consider if it’s worth paying the extra for Pro over standard 12 review
Although I agree with you, keep in mind this is the pro max not the pro which is a different phone entirely
agree, I noticed that after I posted lol, either way something to consider for others
Speaking from family/friends feedback regarding 12, some experienced heating/charging and sudden reboot issues. Changed over to the Pro and never had any issues.
Also Costco don’t accept Amex for anyone wondering.
I have had a 12 since release and have none of those issues.
Funnily enough, Apple upgraded them to the Pro with a good discount for the trouble no questions asked.
But yeah, we’ve had no issues.
No point getting the pro. It’s like the middle child howveer the pro MAX is a different story.
How so? I would personally go for the Pro for the smaller form factor. Having had a 7 Plus for 4 years I want less bulk in my pocket, and the 12 Pro would give me more screen size for a smaller overall size. I know that anything modern would be big improvement over what I’ve got now, but size is definitely the driving factor for me.
If u r used to smaller phones than yeh go for the pro but there are people out there prefer bigger screens and battery size hence the Max.
yeah but if you look into it you don’t get bigger screen size than your 7 plus
I agree 12 or pro max is better value.
Stop It. Get Some Help.
You can actually get this for the same price at JB HiFi. When I bought my iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB, I asked the staff if they price match with Costco (I know they don’t but asked anyway), staff said they don’t. But then I asked what’s the best price they can do and then they said $1799. Turns out 99c cheaper than Costco. LOL
Whenever I’ve asked for deals in the past at Melbourne CBD stores, I was pretty much laughed at…must be really dependent on the salesperson.
As a iPhoneXS owner of many of their products I think this is a shit phone and a super inflated price!
Galaxy A41 5G $400 and A71 5G $639-699 and either as good for a fraction of the price! Seriously, $1800 for a phone with a shelf life of 1 year, NUTS!
Owner of XS..lol
One year?! What are you doing to your phones…?
@guesswhat Get OW to price beat – https://www.apple.com/au-hed/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-12-pro/6… and it will come to $1756.55
Similar to this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/596349
That’s amazing. I’m looking to get one.
Optus Price Match if you’re with them?
Bought one recently from the Apple store on George street Sydney and was surprised to find out Apple will also price match.
They price match Costco?
Do your homework in advance. Go to JB HiFi ask any associate what’s there best price. They usually would offer you something interesting.
