Sony WF-C700N

Sony WF-C700N | NZ$198 NZ$138 on PB Tech NZ (save NZ$60)

We gave these earbuds a full five stars in our Sony WF-C700N review. While they’re missing the audiophile-grade LDAC codec and DSEE upscaling you’ll find in Sony’s more premium earbuds, the Sony WF-C700N buds have the most detailed, immersive audio at this level and price point. We’re happy to report that they’re incredibly comfortable to wear, and we think they look pretty great, too.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 | from NZ$1,879 on Samsung NZ (get a bonus store credit up to NZ$300 + NZ$200 trade-in boost)

The Flip 5 has addressed its predecessors biggest design flaw, which was the visible gap between the screens when folded. The result is a slimmed down look with no more gap, and a much larger screen on the front that’s actually useful. If you buy the 256GB model from Samsung, you’ll get a NZ$200 store voucher, while the 512GB version comes with a NZ$300 store credit, but you must use the voucher at the time of purchasing. You’ll also get a NZ$200 trade-in boost if you’ve got an older phone to hand in.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 | from NZ$2,849 on Samsung NZ (get a bonus store credit up to NZ$600 + NZ$300 trade-in boost)

The latest Fold 5 is thinner and lighter than the Fold 4 that came before it, and it finally folds flat when shut, so there’s no gap between the screens. Buying the Fold 5 directly from Samsung will get you a store voucher valued up to NZ$600 – depending on which storage option you choose – but you must redeem it at the time of purchasing the phone. If you’ve got an older phone to trade-in, you can get a trade-in boost up to NZ$300.

FIFA 23 (PS5)

FIFA 23 (PS5) | NZ$79 NZ$55 on Mighty Ape (save NZ$24)

New Zealand may be out of the Women’s World Cup, but you can keep your football dreams alive by playing FIFA. Mighty Ape has discounted the game down to NZ$55 for PS5, which will save you a decent NZ$24. In our FIFA 23 review we found the game had added some surprisingly impactful gameplay features which the decades-old franchise deserves.
