IKEA products have a wide variety of interesting names. Some are Swedish words, others are named after places, and some are just made-up names made from mixing other words. This dictionary lists them all.
Amazon's business is booming and a move into Australia is planned, but scams from fraudulent third-party sellers are on the rise. Here's how you can shop safely and avoid buying a big ol' box of nothin'.
Last week, we asked our readers what excited them most about the launch of Amazon shopping in Australia. The choices were: Cheaper prices, more variety, faster shipping and forcing improvements to local retail. The results are now in, and the ranking might surprise you - especially if you work in retail.
I have a bad habit. On Saturday nights, after a few glasses of Chablis and a night of doing nothing, I take a trip through my online wishlist looking for something to buy. It's a costly habit that's filled my home with with cheap books, expensive Gundam model kits, and a few E-Mount lenses I haven't exactly gotten around to using.
Amazon is finally launching a shopping service in Australia - which means you will soon be able to buy everything from food to electronics without paying those exorbitant international shipping fees. Here's everything we know about Amazon's arrival Down Under so far.
I created an account with a NSW retailer (with a physical Sydney store, ABN, Pty Ltd, etc) with a promise of free shipping on an item. It was a ruse and there was no free shipping. I asked the retailer numerous times to delete my account but there has been no response and my account is still there. Is there a way to force them to remove my details via government agency or another organisation?
At approximately 10pm last night, Harvey Norman quietly opened pre-orders for the highly-sought after Nintendo Classic Mini SNES. If you didn't hear about the sale, you're not alone - no announcements were made on social media and no press release was issued to journalists. We only just found out about the sale via a report on vooks.net. By then, stock had already sold out.
We're so conflicted about this.
Well, that was quick. Barely ten minutes after going on sale, the Nintendo Classic Mini SNES has sold out on Catch. Better luck next time, eh?
You ordered something online, but it looks completely different when it arrives. For one thing, you didn't notice the weird shape of the collar or that it said "Mondays Suck" in small print on the back.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System isn't due to hit stores until later in the year. However, you can reportedly snap one up this morning via the online deals site Catch (formerly Catch Of The Day.) Here's everything you need to know about the sale.
After summarily ignoring our emails all week, Catch has finally confirmed that the Nintendo Mini SNES won't be going on sale this morning, as previously reported. Instead, it will be appearing at an undisclosed time as part of a flash sale.
That's right: if you want a Mini SNES, you will need to keep checking back on the hour, every hour. Tch.
A recent survey shows that Australians are feeling more time-poor than ever, with 45 per cent of women and 36 per cent of men feeling “always” or “often” rushed, or “pressed for time”. Meanwhile, research has identified that almost one in four shoppers (23%) are willing to pay a premium for “same day” delivery.
In other words, consumers’ expectations are changing. Speed is becoming a point of difference, a new front of competition, between retailers. And many Australian retailers are lagging behind.
