Please Note: JB Hi-Fi have promotions throughout the year, and if their sale price is lower than our agreed Griffith Marketplace price then the Marketplace cost will be reduced to reflect this. If you have made a purchase request for an item that is on sale, please have the request financially approved before the promotion has ended to avoid missing out on the reduced price.
