Google Pixel XL on contract

Why it's appealing: Google's new Pixel XL phone is very impressive (as our review confirms, but starting at $1,269 for the 32GB, it's fairly pricey. Buying on contract means you don't need that up-front sum.
What you need to know about it: Telstra has the exclusive rights to offering the Pixel XL on contract in Australia. The cheapest option is $92 a month over 24 months for the S plan, which includes 1GB of data. For $145 a month over 24 months, the XL plan includes a much more generous 20GB of data.

ME Term Deposit

Why it's appealing: ME Bank lifted rates on its term deposits last week.
What you need to know about it: Rates for 6-month deposits are up by 0.10% to 3.10% and 9-month deposits are up 0.50% to 3.00%. While those aren't enormous rates, any increase is welcome in the current low-rate environment.

Why it's appealing: As well as offering a broking service for personal loans for car buyers, Matchacar runs a buying and selling service that can help match you up with the right vehicle - handy if the thought of traipsing through a car yard fills you with dread.

30% off at THE ICONIC

Why it's appealing: 30% off is a solid deal; indeed it's a better percentage discount than many of the stores taking part in Vogue Online Shopping Night, which kicks off today.
What you need to know about it: The discount applies to more than 20,000 styles on offer through the store, but doesn't cover absolutely everything.
Want to compare other options? We've collected and checked dozens of fashion coupon codes for you to use.
