View Full Version : Did anyone else buy the MacBook Air 11" through Kogan on eBay?

Scored a MacBook Air 11" last night through Kogan on eBay, who were selling the model superseded in April for $500. They had 500 units, and these were snapped up in less than an hour. I bought one for myself, and my father-in-law pulled the trigger on one too.

Ships within 15 days, but I'm in no hurry. Did anyone else snap this up?

And the best thing, which I didn't realise until AFTER the purchase - it sneaks into the FY just gone. Sweet!

I rarely log onto Facebook, but there was a Suggested Post that had an ad for this. There were 126 sold when I logged on, and towards the end, the sales came thick and fast. I barely had time to speak to my father-in-law and talk him through it before they sold out.

If you go to groupbuy.ebay.com.au and subscribe, you might have better luck for future promos.

No I didn't. Already have 2 MacBooks and 3 laptops, i don't think i would need another one. Saw the promo early Sunday morning, contemplated but i informed a friend and he bought the iPads as gifts. Maybe I should post promos on this forum if I manage to spot one.

Yeah, they were doing iPhone 5c for something like $480, and deals on the 5S and the iPads.

Got it last night - turns out it is the current model! Very happy as they said it was the mid-2013 model.

Sad to see that most of the ones on eBay at the moment all have recent feedback from Kogan...

Was that for one day only? The discount doesn't seem to be there upon checking now.

Since subbing to groupbuy, I have not had a single email (no, not even to my junk mail) so I guess I'll unsubscribe again. Its worth keeping an eye on ozbargain, those ozbargainers are on top of every darned thing, it seems to me.
