UPDATE: Like listening while on the go? For all your music, podcast and audiobook needs, get some new headphones for less on Amazon.
Amazon might be the world's largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings. Yet the Australian inventory is gradually increasing, meaning there's always a great bargain to be found.
And with the Prime service 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 means that we're no longer able to import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US version. In lieu of that, Amazon Australia has set up a ‘global store’ option which offers millions of products that were previously available on amazon.com.
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.
We'll keep this list of Amazon deals updated regularly, so be sure to check in often and make sure to score the cheapest price on a variety of tech.

These 'buds are available in black and gold.View Deal
[NEW] 1More Triple Driver in-ear headphones | usually $257 now $143.39
It's one of our favourite in-ear 'buds and although it's tethered by a cable, this is one heck of a set. And it's not very easily available in Australia, but thanks to Amazon, you can lay your hands on this beautiful-sounding Titanium 1More Triple Driver for a smidge over $136.View Deal
[NEW] Sony WH-1000XM2 (Black) | usually $499 now $417
The next generation of Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM2 cans were announced recently at IFA 2018, but we’re not expecting a price drop any time soon on the gen 2 model. But shopping on Amazon can save you about $82 on a set. Although it's not the cheapest price we've seen on Sony's best noise cancelling cans, this is currently the best price on offer.View Deal
If purchased individually without a sale on, you’d be spending at least $20 on a Blu-ray, but on Amazon you can select three of your favourite flicks and pay just $40. That’s a saving of at least $20 if not more. All you need to do is add the ones you want to your basket and the offer will automatically be applied at checkout.View Deal
Bose QuietComfort 35 II (black) | usually $499 now $414
With world-class noise cancellation, a comfortable fit and access to digital assistants, is it any wonder that the Bose QC35s are one of the most popular cans today? And while it comes with a premium price tag, you can save $85 when shopping on Amazon.View Deal
[UPDATED] Destiny 2 (PS4) | usually $79 now $12.99
