How Big W buyers scored $800 PS5 for just $9

A Big W shopper is over the moon after snagging an $800 Play Station 5 for just $9 with a simple hack.

The client took to Markdown Addicts Australia’s Facebook page to reveal how they saved nearly 90 percent on the bill.

He said he used Everyday Rewards – which can also be used at Woolworths – to snag the product.

For every $200 raised at a store, customers can earn $10 off their next purchase.

The man said he combined his points from his department store and grocery store businesses to build a collection.

He then used the $10 he collected on each purchase to lower the price.

One of the tricks he used to amass a huge collection was buying the prepaid Visa cards when Woolworths has booster points on them.

For example, he can collect points when paying bills with Visa cards.

It took the man 18 months to collect $1000 from the rewards scheme and spend the rest on various items.

Social media users were impressed by the $790 discount.

“A great way to show how rewarding points can be,” one person commented on the post.

Another said: “This is now officially my only goal for 2023.”

One added, “Brother I can’t save $50 without spending it.”

Play Station 5 consoles have been notoriously hard to come by in Australia since their 2020 release, with Sony facing three major problems.

One is a global shortage of microchips needed to run the console, and another is the war in Ukraine that affected logistics.

The third problem, albeit not as big, was scalpers buying up the product and then increasing the price.
