The big event happening on eBay this week is its 10% off tech sale for eBay Plus members, which admittedly isn’t much, but if you checkout using Afterpay as well, that discount moves up to 15% off.

We’ve highlighted our top picks below and some of the best deals to be had come on already discounted items, so you can maximise your savings even further. We don’t yet know when this sale will wrap up, so if you see something you like, don’t delay.

You’ll need to be an eBay Plus subscriber to be eligible for these deals, and if you’re not a member, you can easily sign-up for a 30-day free trial now and shop all the exclusive deals we’ve laid out below.

Sony WH-1000XM4 | AU$499 AU$330.60 (save AU$168.40)

Sony’s flagship headphones may look very similar to their predecessors, but they have improved noise-cancellation and added features such as AI audio upscaling and conversational awareness. Plus members can enter the code PLUS10T to get 10% off the listed price, but checkout with Afterpay using the code PXTRA5 and the discount gets better with 15% off.

Apple MacBook Air M18GB RAM / 256GBAU$1,499AU$1,274

Apple MacBook Air M1 | 8GB RAM / 256GB | AU$1,499 AU$1,274 (save AU$225)

Apple ditched Intel chips for its own custom-built processor, the M1. It’s been a real game-changer, and has delivered a solid performance boost to the machine. The M1 chip means you can run any iOS app or game on the device, and they look more graphically impressive than before. If you’re a Plus member, using the code PLUS10T will get you 10% off, while entering the code PXTRA5 and paying with Afterpay will save you 15%.

Xbox Series SAU$499AU$424.15

Xbox Series S | AU$499 AU$424.15 (save AU$74.85)

We haven’t seen a good discount on the Xbox Series S in several months, so this saving is worth your while. We’re fans of its compact design, fast load times and backwards compatibility with previous Xbox titles. It’s already an affordable entry-point into new-gen gaming, but now Plus members have the chance to snap one up at 10% off using PLUS10T. If you’re a member and checkout with Afterpay, use PXTRA5 to get 15% off.

The iPad Air 4 is a powerhouse, with a refreshed design and top-of-the-line features that were previously only available on the iPad Pro. It uses the A14 Bionic chipset, so you can comfortably stream high-quality video and run other demanding apps. There’s a range of colourful designs discounted in blue, green, rose gold, silver and grey when Plus members use the code PLUS10T. To get 15% off, Plus members can pay with Afterpay and enter PXTRA5.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II | AU$499 AU$255 (save AU$244)

Nintendo SwitchAU$469AU$381.65

Nintendo Switch | AU$469 AU$381.65 (save AU$87.35)

This isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen on the popular Nintendo Switch, but it is one of the best deals we can find at the moment. It’s one-part handheld and another part home console, and it’s proven to be another hit from Nintendo. Now you can make it yours for AU$381 when you buy from Big W’s eBay store – Plus members just need to enter PLUS10T. If you’re a member with Afterpay, enter PXTRA5 for 15% off the listed price.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller | AU$99 AU$82.40 (save AU$16.60)

Nintendo’s detachable Joy-Con controllers are great, but if you like to play for more than an hour or two at a time, they can get a little uncomfortable to use. That is where the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller steps in, and it’s much more comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. eBay Plus members can get 10% off with the code PLUS10T, while using PXTRA5 and checking out with Afterpay will get you 15% off.

There’s a huge saving on this 27-inch gaming monitor from Dell. It features a curved screen with 1440p resolution and a 165Hz refresh rate, so you can expect fast-moving visuals with clarity.
