[Equipment] Aussie looking for cheap mask
#1
Hey guys, I am not 100% sure whether this is a permitted question or not, so if not, please remove.

In Australia I have found that CPAP Equipment in general is hugely expensive in comparison to what is sold in the USA. And I cant really afford local replacement parts and masks (primarily) locally, especially given my health fund will only refund some of the machine cost only.

I am sure you guys and gals know from experience where the best deals are on equipment are, and if any of the suppliers provide coupon codes or added advantages for members of this board. (I would have thought that would be a great marketing exercise for them)

I am currently swapping between a P10 and a Fisher&Paykel Pilairo but every where I am reading says replacement pillows for these should be replaced regularly. The best price locally in Australia I have found for these are AU$75 and AU$50 excluding shipping.

There has to be a better way (ok.... a cheaper way!!)

Recommendations for suppliers? Please

Check the supplier list at the top of the page.
In posting, please refer to them by the supplier number.

Some will not export from the US; and some will.

In comparing prices be sure to factor in the USD versus AU$ exchange rate and shipping costs.

We have a number of Aussies on the board and they can likely give you better advice.
I'm sure members zonk and/or DeepBreathing will post to this thread.

I get my supplies once a year to save on shipping costs from Supplier #10, includes cushions, chinstrap, headgear, water tank, etc ...
Prior to that, I got stuff on ebay. Amazon also have CPAP stuff but not sure if they ship to Australia

yep another satisfied user of Supplier #10 here - even with exchange rates and shipping fees still cheaper than any supplier here.

I suggest you keep an eye on Gumtree.

Hi I am also from Australia, I buy myself and my wife's mask's from Ebay and import them from the United States, they can be up to half the price even with shipping than what is charged here in Australia, I don't know why things in this country are such a rip off in price, it is such a joke that a Resmed mask made in Australia can be had for half the price from the United States from Ebay, many will ship internationally, it only takes about 10 days to arrive in the post.
