This really peeves me with Aldi's catalogue sales. Why do Woolworths and Coles have to comply with Australian consumer laws regarding "bait advertising" yet Aldi seem to be exempt?
nobody reports them???

Because they warn you in advance ???

All the Companies do the same thing.. Woolies, Coles, Supercheap, BCF etc etc.. And you have to contend with staff squirrelling away stock so they can get in too. That's what happened when I bought my compressor from Supercheap a couple of years ago. I was the first in through the door, on the day of the sale. No Stock!!! I asked the shop assistant how can that be, I am the first one in the shop. He just shrugged his shoulders. So while having a look around at what else they had on special, I found one of the compressors jammed behind some other stuff on a different shelf. The guy at the counter had a bit of a funny look on his face when he saw me drop it on the counter.

I went to BCF to buy a paddle board for the wife for Christmas.  Sale started on Wednesday, I rock up at 7:15am to my closest store on the day of the sale... sorry we have sold out haven't had any for a few weeks.  Ok any other stores?  Could try Maroochydore or Nowra they show stock (I rang Maroochydore but they couldn't find it).   So basically no stock in South East Queensland.  I contacted BCF who fobbed me off and went onto contact Fair Trading who got an offer from BCF to sell it to me at the sale price and ship it to me for free (this is 6 weeks later) and basically said there is nothing they can do.

Managed to get one of the 100ah AGM batteries and a caravan cover. The cover had to go back as I had mistaken the width of our old van (was 10cm wider than the covers measurements) - but the battery seems to be ok (Reads 13.1v out of the box)> was tempted to go back and get a second battery, but they sold out hyper quickly.
We've swapped from the camper to a van yay! :)

Picked one of these up this morning, mainly for the shed, garage & car.

It makes noise when I turn it on & dirt & dust disappear up the hose, so I assume it's all good ;D

Looks like it says 12v 2.0A so I imagine if the plug fits and your polarity is ok, you should be able to do it.

Thanks Jonesy, but probably going to run it straight to the battery, rather than through a plug.

Will definitely keep it in mind though!

Looks good, but I'm quite sure the allocation will probably be something less 1 / store :'(

Thanks!

That's a bit of an issue then, but still cheap for a 100Ah lithium.

Got these a few weeks ago: https://offers.kd2.org/en/au/aldi/plGGY/ & got to try them over the last couple of nights.

Great! :cup:

Colours seem to last a lot longer than the single packs you usually get, as well as being ~1/3 - 1/4 the individual price ;D

We used some of them on the weekend, hate to think what noxious chemicals we inhaled while watching the pretty colours.

shouldn't be about time for some more Aldi camping and vanning gear to be released?
