During the 'wet season', deliveries to the Northern Territory and Northern Queensland may take longer due to adverse weather conditions.

Lowest Price Guarantee - Find an identical stocked item at a lower price and we'll beat it by 5%. (Excludes stock liquidatons, customer special orders and contract pricing.)

Our price checkers guarantee that we bring you the lowest prices possible every day, and that's a promise. However, if you happen to find a cheaper advertised price on an identical stocked item that's in stock with our competitor - even if it's on sale, we will not only match it, we'll beat it by 5%.

All identical products and services with identical terms and conditions that are stocked at Officeworks and in stock at our competitor.
  • Non identical products and services (inclusive of non identical warranties)
  • Package deals i.e. printer and computer bundles
  • Cash back and coupon offers
  • Resellers
  • Customer special orders
  • Contract Pricing
  • Competitor clearance products
Officeworks reserves the right to limit the quantity of products available for price-matching at its discretion. The Lowest Price Guarantee does not extend to resellers.
Identical products are price matched against online stores but as with any other kind of store, the item must be currently in stock. When price matching online stores we also take into account the added cost of delivery. If the identical product can be purchased and delivered via an online store for a total price lower than the one we are offering, we will beat that total price by 5%.

For further information please visit your local Officeworks store and they will be able to assist you with your query.

^ The Lowest Price Guarantee can only be redeemed in store, by fax or by calling 1300 OFFICE (633 423)
