Headphones & speakers
Bose Sports earbuds |
AU$299 from AU$199 (opens in new tab) (save up tp AU$100)
If you’re looking for a pair of earbuds to use on your regular exercise routine, the Bose Sports earbuds are a good option. Offering a true wireless experience so you don’t have to worry about getting tangled in cords, these buds come with a IPX4 water resistance rating so you can also work up a sweat while using them. Plus there’s three different tips included, so you can find the size that’s most comfortable and secure for you. These buds have scored a 33% off discount, bringing them down to AU$199 currently.
Bose QuietComfort 45 |
AU$499.95 AU$339.95 (opens in new tab) (save AU$160)
While the Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones didn’t impress us as much as the 700’s above did, they still have quite a lot to offer. Lightweight with a comfortable fit, the QuietComfort 45’s also boast fantastic noise cancellation and a vibrant soundstage. They also feature Awareness Mode to help adjust your audio, so you can switch off the noise cancellation without having to remove your headphones when you still want to listen to music but need to pay more attention to your surroundings.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro |
AU$349 AU$258.75 (opens in new tab) (save AU$90.25)
We'd argue that these are the best true wireless earbuds Samsung has released to date. They offer vastly improved hi-res sound quality, and better active noise cancellation too. These buds were slashed down to an incredible AU$169 at the beginning of December, but for now the cheapest you can grab these buds on Amazon is AU$249.
Sony WF-1000XM4 |
AU$449 AU$293.50 (opens in new tab) (save AU$155.50)
We rate these as the best true wireless earbuds you can buy, and they're now down AU$293.50 at Amazon. Offering full-bodied sound and great call quality, a saving of AU$151 off is a good deal. We did see these earbuds drop to AU$229 on Black Friday, but then again, most sales don't match Black Friday prices and this really is a great bargain.
Apple MacBook Pro (2021) | M1 Pro / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$2,847 AU$2,547 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$300)
Coming packed with the M1 Pro chip and 512GB of storage, this 14-inch MacBook Pro has scored a saving of AU$300 off at Amazon. While that might not seem like a huge discount, Apple products rarely get a discount above 10%, so this is a pretty good bargain, especially if you’re after one of Apple’s premium laptops. Offering a Liquid Retina XDR display and up to 17 hours of battery life, the MacBook Pro is a great device for a professional looking for a sleek and powerful device.
Logitech MX Keys wireless keyboard |
AU$229.95 AU$129 (opens in new tab) (save AU$100.95)
We consider the Logitech MX keys one of the best keyboards for programmers thanks to its slim design and phenomenal battery life.

Logitech G915 Lightspeed wireless mechanical keyboard |
AU$399 AU$262.95 (opens in new tab) (save AU$136.05)
This is a great wireless gaming keyboard for several reasons: lag-free wireless connectivity, exceptional battery life, and low-profile mechanical switches are our standout features. It's a tastefully pared-back keyboard despite RGB stylings. This was down to AU$250 during Boxing Day, but this is still a pretty good saving with AU$136 off.
Razer BlackShark V2 Pro (wireless, closed-back) |
AU$239 AU$159 (opens in new tab) (save AU$80)
This is the "Pro" version of one of the best PC gaming headsets you can get and still offers good value for money. It's an over-ear affair with "hyperspeed" wireless connectivity, advanced passive noise cancellation, and what Razer calls a HyperClear supercardioid mic. This deal isn't the best we've seen (it was AU$150 during Cyber Monday) but if you want one, it's still below RRP.
Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard |
AU$79 AU$47.20 (opens in new tab) (save AU$51.80)
One of the outright best travel keyboards you can buy, the Logitech K380 was already good value at AU$79 in our opinion. During Black Friday, you could grab yourself one of these keyboards for only AU$36. Despite now having gone up to AU$49, it’s still a good bargain. With it, you can connect to three devices simultaneously via Bluetooth and improve productivity using the four hotkeys.

About Amazon deals in Australia
Amazon might be the world’s largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings compared to other more well-established regions. Yet the Australian inventory is catching up, meaning there’s always a great bargain to be found.
With the Prime service (opens in new tab) now available in Australia, shopping on Amazon can save you plenty. There’s a whole load of perks that come with being a Prime member, including early access to a lot of Lightning Deals as well as the ability to participate in Amazon’s annual members-only Prime Day sales.
Unfortunately, GST being applied to all purchased goods shipped to Australia meant that, for a while, we couldn't import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US storefront. However, the retail giant backflipped on that decision after customers pressured Amazon to reverse the ban.
- What is Amazon Prime? Amazon’s subscription service in Australia explained
The 'global store' has now become a great place to find bargains from the US. The advantage here is that import duty is added to the cost of the item and Amazon handles the customs clearance for you.
If you do decide to shop for tech from the global store, keep in mind you may not be covered under Australian warranties and you may – under some circumstances – need to pay shipping costs as well.
Finding the cheapest prices on the tech currently sold on Amazon Australia, however, can be rather time consuming, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help you sift through the chaff and find the best bargains on the hottest products.
