    tip: before you purchase anything try to ask by saying "what is the best price" for this item

    best price means kung sa tagalog ang tanung mo "magkano kaya mong ibigay na mababa ang price" or "baka puede mo pang babaan ang presyo" makikipag bargain ka.

    kaya yan lagi ang itanung mo agad kung bibili ka ng gamit especially kapag mga ganyan kamahal na item

    pag sinabi ng sales man. "oh that the only price we can give" means yun na ang last price kung anu man ang nakalagay sa price tag.

    Pero madalas babaan pa nila yan ng minsan 10 percent. dipende sa bibilhin mo.

    Mga kbbayan, san b nkakabili ng mga murang appliances at furniture dito sa melbourne?
    late na tong reply ko, pero might help others. :D
    search ka sa internet ng cheapest na price ng appliance na gusto mo, iprint mo. madami kasing mura sa internet pero online lng at wala silang actual store.
    tapos punta ka sa tindahan ( not the same store online), tapos sabihin mo sa salesman, na ganun un hinahanap mo tapos pagnakita nila un price sa printout mo, usually, ibibigay nila un price na nakuha mo sa internet.
    i did that sa goodguys sa maribrynong. mas mura kasi ng 150 un fridge online and 50-100 un washing machine. me sales rep dun na pinoy, binigay niya sa akin un price sa printouts ko. hehe. then pwde mo din inegotiate un delivery kung madami kang appliance na bibilhin. :D

    Ikea here us a no-no. Nasanay din kami Aa ikea Dubai, bUT our friends here find it overrated and unreasonably pricy. For small appliances, k-mart is the place. Tsaka Home collection brand ng woolies. Try to look around pa rin dahil ang laki ng difference ng prices dito.

    Late na tong reply ko pero makatulong sana ito as future reference. For furniture like bed and mattresses, i found Elec Home Furniture (through gumtree.com.au) the cheapest. They don't have website but their warehouse location is in Clayton. Search lng address sa net. I bought King Size bed for $190 + King mattress memory foam for $410. Delivery cost around $70. Mahimbing na tulog namin ng pamilya ko.
