Whenever I mentioned there is sales at Audio House to friends and colleagues, the response from them were always identical. “Sales gimmick lah…bluff one lah,” echoed one another. It seems they could have encountered some bad experiences or just from mere hearsay. This is all part of the marketing strategies employed by a lot of companies to entice you to their shop. It’s very frustrating when the “hot buys” were always sold out even though you got there early.
So when I saw an ad last week that a lot of electronic products being offered cheap, I decided to set off to Liang Court where the sales was held as I’ve never been to Audio House anyway. No doubt I’m going there with skepticism; however I’ve got nothing to lose. Besides, if it’s true, I will not hesitate to decant whatever grievances I have to Yebber.com (ha ha…my punching bag).
I went straight to the camera section to ask for the Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd model digital camera as I have already done my homework. The price was a flat S$499 at all the retail shops that I have enquired. It includes a soft case, battery kit and a 2G SD card. However, over here, it cost me S$449 with extra goodies thrown in. I also got an additional 2G SD card for Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras purchased during GSS 23 May to 20 Jul 2008 claimable at Suntec City Fujifilm Digital Corner.
So, gimmick or not. We just have to find out ourselves. After all, this place was not as bad as perceived. Well, No Venture No Gain!
