The exclusive offer is only available to first responders who will need to provide a photo ID in store to prove their work identity.

‘Alternatively, they can shop in their work uniform,’ the retailer said on its website.

The offer excludes Apple products, mobile phone contracts, Miele and Asko agency products, Dell built to order and pre-paid cards and gift cards. 

‘Discounts apply to most recent previous ticketed or advertised price. As we negotiate on price, products are likely to have sold below ticketed or advertised price in stores prior to the discount offer,’ the retailer added.

Hundreds of shoppers praised the chain for the ‘terrific gesture’, as many frontline workers revealed they will be visiting their store during their shift.

A JB Hi-Fi employee has shared her top secrets to shopping at the electronics store – including getting the best discounts on products every time.

The Sydney employee took to TikTok to reveal the four ‘hacks’ you should know about.

‘Tip number one, if you want to get served as soon as possible, go to the Apple desk because I can guarantee someone will come serve you ASAP,’ she said.

‘Hack number two, if you go into the store and they don’t have the stock of the product, just tell them to transfer the stock in from another store.

‘Number three, if you want a good price, ask for a discount or a good deal because we do give discounts.

‘Last hack – don’t wear a hoodie to JB HI-FI because we are most likely going to think you’re stealing.’
