1. Dell - Up to 50% off selected laptops
If you're in the market for a new laptop, Dell's sale is one that you definitely won't want to miss out on. The whopping up to 50% off sale spans a bunch of Inspiron laptops, making it entirely possible to snap up a 15.6-inch display for under the $700 mark. The real deal, though, comes in the heavily reduced prices of the XPS 13 and XPS 15 models. Highly rated and featuring some impressive specs, the XPS models are largely considered the best Dell models to shop, making their inclusion in the sale something to get excited about.
2. Microsoft Store - 15% off select Surface Pro and Surface laptops
Microsoft Surface laptops are some of the most sought-after models currently on the market. From the super-sleek, lightweight Surface Laptop 2 to the new Surface Pro 6 model with a faster than ever 8th Generation Intel Core processor and up to 13.5 hours of battery life, these Microsoft models are a solid investment. While all that technology does come with a reasonably hefty price tag, your 15% off will shave around $600 off the Surface Laptop 2 and just over $500 off of the Surface Pro 6. Not bad at all.
3. Lenovo - Up to 30% off selected desktops
If you prefer a desktop to a laptop, you might want to hit up Lenovo's online store. You can currently save 25% on IdeaCentre 510 models, all of which include the latest generation of Intel Core i7 processing. You can also land yourself a great deal on PCs like the ThinkCentre M720 and M920 as well as some of the Lenovo V530 models.
4. Microsoft Store - $130 off select Bose audio
If you are yet to try the cult-favourite Bose QuietComfort 35 II noise-cancelling headphones, now's your chance. As part of Microsoft's Bose sale, the brand has knocked $104 off the usual $500 price tag, bringing your grand total to just $395. And take it from someone who flat out refuses to go on public transport without them – that price is so very worth it. Also included in the sale are three pairs of wireless in-ear headphones, the Bose Home Speaker 500 and the Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System. They're all highly rated and all discounted, so get in quick.
5. Amazon Australia - Buy 2 Amazon Echos for just $199
The popularity of voice-activated home assistants has absolutely skyrocketed over the past couple of years. And with the capacity to answer questions, set timers and alarms, play music and connect to compatible smart home devices, the Amazon Echo is one of the most popular options available. It also has the ability to connect to other Echo devices in your home, making this deal the perfect time to stock up on the speakers. They usually go for $149, but you can currently score yourself $50 off one device or pick up two for just $199.
If you do want a new phone, but want something without all the bells and whistles, Target is offering up to 20% off selected Optus products. This including the Optus X Spirit 2 4G Prepaid Mobile which features a 5.34-inch display, Bluetooth and a 4GB memory which is expandable up to 128GB on MicroSD. The deal also includes up to 20% off of SanDisk products and selected Canon inks.
