eBay’s giving Aussies a chance to snag 20% off a plethora of tech products

If you’ve been waiting to lay your hands on some brand-new tech and are getting impatient for Black Friday to come along, well, you can scratch that itch now.

Starting today, eBay has a 20% discount on a huge range of gear from a wide selection of Australian tech retailers, but you will have to use the code PLUG20 at checkout to snag that bargain.

If you’ve had a laptop on your shopping list, Dell, Asus and Lenovo are amongst the retailers participating in this massive sale.

Sony, Mighty Ape and VideoPro are also on board, so get ready to grab some great audio gear or upgrade your home entertainment for cheap.

It’s worth noting that many stores have jacked up their prices prior to the sale going live, so we recommend doing a quick search for retail prices and any other sales before you pull the trigger on eBay.
