You can always break down your order into multiple $80 lots. Then use the 5 pound newsletter voucher. Not great but it's still around 10%.

Obviously it won't work if you have a $200 shirt....

T7 $89 + $10 freight, Wiggle ~$79 delivered.
Wiggle had the B17-S $101 delivered versus T7's $120 + $10 freight.

If you can wait Ultegra 11sp Di2 has just been announced. So it should lead to clear out prices on current stock as we get closer to release date.

Pushys has a sale with 40% off marked prices (i.e. on top of the discounts listed on each product page):

Once you add an item to the basket, the additional 40% discount is applied. Don't forget free shipping for orders over $100.

Apres Velo have a promotion now with lifetime 10% discount (not sure of the actual terms).

They are also promoting their (AUD) $125 free delivery threshhold and 100 day 'risk free' returns. The returns is attractive though once-again depends on the details. That said, they sre pushing the quality so if you destroy your gea, it seems that it can be returned with the receipt.

Wow.. he asks for it without a crankset for less than $1500 and still people aren't happy.

But ok.

Ultegra Di2 shifters & derailleurs (no batteries or wiring loom), $690 delivered: http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/r ... ables.html

Shifters & derailleurs, cables, battery & charger, $967: http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/r ... arger.html

(Not convinced this is really a better deal than the PBK one, but it does drop under the GST threshold)

Regarding the above Ultegra link:
http://www.probikekit.com.au/cycling-gr ... 20bb2fb2ee

if you use the "ABN10" code it will reduce the total from $1098 to $980 - no GST!

Torpedo7 are running another bike sale atm. Some good prices to be had on lots of things!

I also tried their web code AU6608 they've splashed about the net to save $10 on a $50 purchase, but it doesnt seem to work for me.

Wiggle currently have 20% off if you are a Platinum customer (instead of the usual 12%). I believe that offer is until the 22nd of July.

Cell Azure Bib Short Black/Sky Blue $19.95, 48 Hour Special so I have no idea when the sale ends.

I have no idea what these are like, I just posted because $19.95 seems cheap for bibs.

Curious to know what you bought. I've just spent about 1/2 an hour checking out these "specials" and couldn't find a single item that I can't buy elsewhere cheaper.

Lots of bits and bobs for mtb/BMX/cruiser/skater gear.
There are discount road shoes but perhaps not as much roadie stuff discounted as the other types.

Seriously? that stuff is so cheap. You do need the right size though, as a lot of the items are weird sizes.

e.g Louis garneau montana XT2 MTB shoes. $60 at pushys (after discount), $90 at evans cycles and $180 on some other online stores.

http://www.pushys.com.au/louis-garneau- ... -2012.html

The list price is before the 40% discount and when you add it to cart it applies the discount, are you factoring this in?
