    I posted the following on the Marketplace but I thought it wouldn't hurt if I posted it on here as well:

    Just a bit of a PSA, I found a great deal on Amazon Prime for the Bosch PBD 40 Bench Drill. Previously, the best "street" price I could find was around AU$410. Amazon's current price is $246.42 which includes's free delivery for Prime members. The one downside I could find with this deal is according to the delivery info, the drill is "usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months". I wasn't in any real hurry so I was prepared to wait and Amazon don't deduct your credit card until the item is ready to be dispatched. The good news is I just got an email from Amazon stating the drill will be dispatched earlier than expected and the new estimated date of delivery is the 3rd of Sept (I placed the order last Saturday). I reckon that's a pretty good deal and I thought I'd share it with everyone.



    Cheers,
    Mike.

    That's a great price mike. About half what I paid for mine at Bunnies!

    I agree, Tom. You can console yourself that that price wasn't available when you bought yours and you've had the use of the drill for however long you've had it. Just a month ago when I checked Amazon, the cheapest price they had it for was around $500 IIRC. I have no idea why the price has dropped so much in such a short time, but you know what they say, "Never look a gift horse in the mouth!". That's why I immediately pulled the trigger just in case they change the price back up.

    You got it Mike! I've had mine for 2 years and I love it. I particularly like the idea of not having to change belt pulley positions to change the speed.

    Not wanting to dampen the buy, but did you check with Bosch to see if it’s a genuine Bosch drill and that Bosch will honour warranty on it.?
    Might check myself tomorrow and order one if it is genuine.

    No, I didn't. TBH, warranty isn't really something that I consider especially with online purchases because most of the time they've been from overseas and from my experience most things break down after the warranty period has lapsed. With this particular case, the seller is Amazon Oz themselves and not some supplier. I doubt that they would sell fake Bosch drills and Amazon have a good reputation for easy returns and good customer service (I think they offer free returns but I'm not sure). And being the Australian arm of Amazon, I would think that they would be subject to Australia's consumer laws like all Australian companies. But you could be right. Caveat Emptor and all that. All I'm doing is providing a lead. Everyone's responsible for all their purchasing decisions,


    Cheers,
    Mike

    Bargain price, thanks. Couldn't find this on the Bunnings website, maybe it's discontinued and being sold off.

    I think some Mitre10 stores may still have it. Their price is $419 IIRC.

    Just rang Bosch Australia. Amazon au is an authorised distributor for Bosch Power Tools so all items sold by Amazon au are genuine Bosch and have full Bosch warranty. This MAY NOT be the case for “Bosch?” items sold by a third party selling through Amazon au.
    The PBD40 is not a discontinued item.

    Needless to say - I ordered one

    Thanks again Mike for the heads-up

    That's all good info. Thanks Lappa.
