Online shoppers get chance to buy 'bargain batts'

Australian online shoppers have been offered the chance to make huge savings on insulation batts.

Online auction site GraysOnline said yesterday (August 25th) that more than 100,000 bags of insulation batts would be auctioned off at up to 90 per cent below the normal price after Labor's failed home insulation scheme led to a huge surplus of the product.

According to the Daily Telegraph, packets of 16 batts will be auctioned off for as little as $9 each, meaning that savvy online shoppers could buy enough insulation for a three-bedroom house for under $200.

"A lot of the different companies were caught with the product when the federal government changed their rulings about what they were doing with the scheme," GraysOnline chief executive Cameron Poolman said. "All of a sudden all our guys around Australia were getting phone calls from insulation businesses wanting to sell stock. There are tonnes of it."

The news may interest Aussies looking to compare credit cards in search of the best online shopping tools. It was reported earlier this week that Blackberry customers in Australia can now use their credit cards to purchase apps thanks to a recent update to Blackberry App World.
