Any investment, no matter how big or small, requires some research... into the product itself and its cost. Obviously we'd all prefer to save some money, find a really good deal on what we're after. And that can take up a lot of your time.

To help you get a head start on your bargain hunting, T3's Australian team has searched every nook and cranny of the interwebs to find the most trusted Aussie retailers who regularly have sales and discounts you can take a look at online.

This dedicated page keeps you informed on all the top retailers across several categories that T3 is most familiar with – whether you want to get a new pair of running shoes or update your Garmin wearable. From fashion to tech, and a few things in between, we've got a list of retailers who'll likely offer a great bargain.
