Home and Living
Philips Airfryer Premium XXL |
AU$399 AU$299 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$130)
If you're keen to get into air frying, why not start with the best? The Philips Airfryer Premium XXL has a 1.4kg capacity, so it’s big enough to cook for the whole family. It gets the job done quickly and, without the need for a large amount of oil, it’s far healthier than regular pan frying. The white model (opens in new tab) is discounted on Amazon.
Dyson V7 Cord-free |
AU$599 AU$399 on The Good Guys eBay (opens in new tab) (save AU$200)
It may be an older model Dyson, but it's still a Dyson, so you know the quality is there. And now it’s one of the brand’s cheapest handsticks. You'll get up to 30 minutes of suction from the V7, with about 10 minutes of battery if you use its highest power setting. Dyson has discounted it (opens in new tab), but eBay members will get it even cheaper by purchasing through The Good Guys’ eBay store.
Dyson V8 Animal |
AU$699 AU$599 on Dyson (opens in new tab) (save AU$100)
If you'd really like to get your hands on a Dyson without forking out too much, and the V7 doesn't quite have the kind of power you desire, then consider the V8. It's powerful, great on carpets with pet hair and will carry on purring for a top of 40 minutes each charge. This particular model ships with one motorised cleaning head and four additional attachments direct from the manufacturer.
Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire |
AU$1,299 AU$718.54 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$580.46)
The Garmin Fenix 6 is the best multi-sport watch money can buy, but the range usually doesn’t come cheap. Amazon has slashed the price of the premium wearable, saving you a massive AU$580. It’s got top-notch adventure tracking and GPS-based mapping for when you’re off the beaten path. As the Sapphire version, it features a scratch-resistant sapphire lens. Now heavily discounted at Amazon.

Laptops and PCs
Asus ZenBook Duo 14 (UX482) | i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$2,799 AU$2,549 on Bing Lee (opens in new tab) (save AU$250)
A truly innovative laptop, the ZenBook Duo comes with a dual-screen that proves to be useful as much as it is intriguing. This model comes with an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, giving it strong performance and a very good battery life. There’s some compromises to the keyboard and touchpad to fit in the extra screen, but overall, it’s a brilliant laptop. Now discounted at Bing Lee, but you’ll save extra by claiming cash back.
Alienware M15 R4 | i7 / 32GB / 1TB SSD / RTX 3070 | (opens in new tab)
AU$4,499 (opens in new tab)
Get your hands on the rather elusive GPU under the hood working alongside a 11th-gen i7 CPU. There's more than enough memory and storage here as well, so you can throw any game at it and it'll handle with ease. Save a huge AU$1,350 with Dell, but be quick, this deal ends on June 3.
Nintendo Switch console |
AU$469.95 AU$379 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$90.95)
Going cheaper than what it was during Amazon's Mid-Year Sale, the Grey (opens in new tab) Joy-Con version of the 2019 iteration of the Switch is discounted to under AU$380. You might want to get one quick if you've been keen as stocks are likely to run out fast at this price. The Neon (opens in new tab) version is also priced at AU$379, but is out of stock until July 7, 2021.
Xbox Series S |
AU$499 AU$429 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$70)
The latest generation of consoles are still super fresh on the market (and very rarely in stock), so seeing AU$70 off the Xbox Series S is certainly worth a look. It's not quite as powerful as the Series X, but if you're looking for a more compact and casual entry into the current generation of gaming, you should probably pounce on this opportunity.
Razer Viper Ultimate mouse |
AU$199 AU$159.20 at JB Hi-Fi (opens in new tab) (save AU$39.80)
This wireless mouse can save up to five profiles, plus eight programmable buttons on a sleek and lightweight design, alongside all the other advantages that cheaper models bring. So get your game on and save when shopping at JB Hi-Fi.
Razer BlackShark V2 Pro |
AU$239 AU$191.20 at JB Hi-Fi (opens in new tab) (save AU$47.80)

Canon EOS R5 (body only) |
AU$6,999 AU$5,273.92 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,725.08)
The headline-making EOS R5 is an expensive beast but it justifies the cost in its performance. But there's no need to pay full price when you can go click-happy for less. At under AU$5,300, this is a pretty good deal if you've been lusting after Canon's flagship full-framer.
Phones and Tablets
iPhone 12 (64GB) |
AU$1,349 AU$1,149 on Telstra (opens in new tab) (save AU$200)
If you're thinking of switching or upgrading your device, consider Telstra's deal on the iPhone 12. For AU$200 off, you’ll have the choice of signing up for 12- or 24-month repayments. Telstra’s plans come with no lock-in contract though, so in theory, you should be able to switch telcos anytime (provided you pay off the device). You can also save AU$200 on the iPhone 12 mini (opens in new tab).
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 (128GB, Wi-Fi) |
AU$1,049 AU$749 on The Good Guys eBay (opens in new tab) (save AU$300)
The Galaxy Tab S7 is boasting a heavy discount. It's premium build hosts a gorgeous 11-inch, 120Hz display, making it one of Samsung’s finest tablets yet. And its compact size makes it easily portable, making it perfect for note taking, sketching or watching Netflix on the go. You’ll need to enter the code PPSS100 to get the discount.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro |
AU$349 AU$219.99 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$129.01)
Samsung’s best yet, the Galaxy Buds Pro come with better sound quality than previous earbuds (though still not up to scratch with the best from Bose and Sony). Still, they boast multipoint pairing, waterproofing up to the IPX7 standard and some entry-level noise cancellation. They’re now a massive 37% off on Amazon, and are cheapest in black (opens in new tab).
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 |
AU$499 AU$369 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$130)
These true wireless buds from Sennheiser – one of our favourites – were going real cheap during the sales with over 60% off. While not quite as steep a discount, there's still 26% off on these lightweight, comfortable and great-sounding 'buds available in either black (opens in new tab) or white (opens in new tab)on Amazon.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 |
AU$599 AU$376 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$223)
Boses's premium and elegant flagship ANC cans are almost half price on Amazon at the moment, available in Black and Silver. Designed for comfort and style, these headphones provide the best ANC the company has to offer, solid call quality, and a well-balanced, clear audio.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II |
AU$399 AU$285 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$114)
It wasn't so long ago that the QuietComfort 35 II was the king of the wireless ANC headphone market. Now a little older, we regularly see them discounted at this stage. But this is still an exceptional price on quality audio and noise-cancelling. You’ll save AU$114 when you buy from Amazon in black (opens in new tab) or silver (opens in new tab).
Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones |
AU$499 AU$330 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$153)
Sony's latest WH-1000XM4 headphones are the company's best when it comes to both ANC and audio. They offer excellent adaptive noise-cancelling and a pleasing, warm audio profile – the combo of which makes for a cosy audio blanket. The black set gets a big discount at AU$330 (opens in new tab).
Beats Studio 3 |
AU$449.95 AU$329 at Dick Smith (opens in new tab)(save AU$115.95)
These headphones look great, feel comfortable and offer a battery life of up to 40 hours – incredible. They pack good noise cancellation, but the Studio 3 headphones are let down by their sound quality, as they’re not able to separate sound as well as their competitors. Still, they’re currently much cheaper than our favourite Sony XM4’s. We've seen the Forest Green version a bit cheaper in the opast, but this is the best price you'll find if you want them in Crystal Blue (opens in new tab).
TVs and Entertainment
Foxtel has a fantastic EOFY deal on right now that offers three months of free internet, plus discounted streaming for the first three months on a 12-month plan. You'll also get a bonus Google smart display thrown in at no extra cost. That means you can stream unlimited content from Foxtel 50+ channels for movies, TV shows, sports and kids programs.

EOFY Sale 2021: what is it?
The end of the financial year comes around on June 30, which means it's that dreaded time of the year where we have to file our tax returns with the ATO.
But before we launch into the new financial year, retailers race to ditch their old stock to make way for fresh new releases to roll in, slashing prices by huge margins as they free up more room on their stocklists. That means you can save big on slightly older versions of the best products.
And quite often discounts will change throughout the sale period, so it's best to keep checking back in to see if what you’re after has seen a price drop.
EOFY Sale 2021: when is it?
In Australia, the EOFY sale usually begins on June 1 and ends on June 30.
That said, plenty of retailers will look to get in early with deals and start slashing prices towards the end of May. But don't be fooled by these initial discounts, as the best value offers usually arrive in June.
And be sure to check specific retailers for start and end dates as not all will host a month-long sale period.
EOFY Sale 2021: what deals to expect
EOFY sales will see discounts across a wide range of retailers. From home appliances to audio, laptops and TVs, there's always plenty to be saved on technology which will soon be super-seeded by the latest releases.
Wearables, shoes, sunglasses and clothes all get major price cuts too, with the latests upgrades, models and designs due in the new financial year.
Amazon was a major player last year and is promising to offer buyers the opportunity to make big savings again in 2021, also coinciding with Amazon Prime Day taking place over two days in June.
In the tech world, HP, Dell, Sony and Bose played a key role last year, while Shaver Shop, Dyson and Kogan had big deals on personal care and home appliances. All are expected to offer huge savings again in 2021.
Keep an eye out for deals with the likes of Rebel Sport, Target, Sunglass Hut and SurfStitch if you're in the market for new outfits or kicks.
And broader retailers like Catch AU, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman and Myer are also likely to offer savings across a range of products.
EOFY Sale 2021: best offers from last year
If last year's deals are anything to go off, there's massive savings to be had in 2021. These are some of the best discounts from the 2020 EOFY sale:
Lenovo ThinkPad E15 | i5 / 8GB / 512GB SSD | AU$1,149.50 (RRP AU$2,299; save AU$1,149.50)
Lenovo's ThinkPad range is known for its security and stability to anyone invested in the business laptop space, and this E15 is no exception. Last year, buyers set themselves up with a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 15.6-inch display, 512GB SSD, and fingerprint reader for 50% off full RRP from Lenovo's store.
JBL Flip 4 | AU$79 (RRP AU$149; save AU$70)
The JBL Flip 4 offers big sound in a compact package. By the time of the sales last year, the Flip 4 had been replaced by the next-gen Flip 5. At 47% off on Amazon, it was one of the best speaker deals around. For just AU$79 buyers got a rugged, waterproof Bluetooth speaker with great sound and an impressive 14-hour battery life.
Amazon Echo Show 8 | AU$129 (RRP AU$229; save AU$100)
Amazon offered its then brand new device with a hefty 31% discount during last year's EOFY sale. It has an 8-inch screen, so you can control your compatible smart home devices with your voice or the touchscreen display. You can also use the Echo Show 8 to stream movies and TV shows from Prime Video, chill out with tunes or manage your day, with the dual speakers providing a decent soundscape.
Garmin Fenix 5S | AU$499 (RRP AU$949; save AU$450)
The word ‘premium’ sometimes falls short when describing this wearable as it previously carried an official price tag of nearly AU$1,000. While it's now significantly cheaper, this near half-price discount was huge for last year's EOFY. Bing Lee offered the chance to score a massive AU$450 saving on the Sapphire Edition of the rose gold Garmin Fenix 5S – a smartwatch with a scratch-proof watch face, GPS and GLONASS satellite reception.
