DeLonghi Automatic Compact Coffee Machine $500 off - Harvey Norman
After realising that HN didn't have anything that was worth buying in the way of network storage, I decided to look elsewhere but the wife had found her way to the coffee machines.
At this point I must admit that we did need a new machine as the old one we had was leaking but what I didn't realise was that the wife was talking to the DeLonghi rep who had sold her on the idea of getting an automatic coffee machine.
Where are you going with this you may ask. Well the machine that she had her heart set on was originally $1199 but HN had it on special for just under $900. That was not good enough for me so after some haggling and sweet talking the really nice sales rep, we managed to get this machine for $750 and a voucher to send into DeLonghi for another $50 cashback...so $700 after the cashback which makes it a $500 saving.
This is why I love Harvey Norman, they don't mind budging if you ask really nicely :)
