For us Aussies, June is when we start getting ready for tax time. And that rings in the massive EOFY sales each year. Practically every Aussie tech retailer offers discounts of one flavour or another during this time, making it a great opportunity to pick up something with a hefty price tag that you've been holding out for.
The best part is that not only will score the tax-time savings offered by the retailers, you may also find that the item you've purchased is needed for work purposes and becomes tax deductible... thus adding to your savings in the form of your returns.
So, why do we get so many discounts this time of year? It's because retailers are trying to clear out last year's stock to make room for fresh bounty. So keep an eye out of discounts on a wide variety of tech, from home entertainment systems to upgrade your home or powerhouse laptops to make work (and play) a breeze. Headphones, cameras and so much more too!
It's not just tech that's discounted this time of year. Several retailers also celebrate a mid-year sale (like Amazon) or an end-of-season sale. So there'll be plenty to shop for.
Below is a list of just some of the top Australian retailers offers EOFY discounts and deals.
