Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus (128GB) | AU$1,249 + plan fees at Vodafone (opens in new tab) (save AU$300)

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is the middle child of the S22 family, and it’s a little smaller than the S22 Ultra at 6.6-inches across. Vodafone has slashed AU$300 off the device’s RRP, and if you throw in Vodafone’s cheapest plan, you’ll pay AU$92.04 a month over 24 months. As with all of Vodafone’s offers, you must stay connected to a plan to get the discount.

Total minimum cost is AU$1,576.46

Samsung Galaxy S22 (128GB) | AU$949 + plan fees at Vodafone (opens in new tab) (save AU$300)

The Samsung Galaxy S22 is the standard model – it’s small and solidly built with a 6.1-inch display, and it’s now down to AU$949 in Vodafone’s deal. You’ll need to stay connected to a plan over 24 or 36 months to keep the discount, so we’d recommend pairing it with Vodafone’s AU$40 Lite plan (opens in new tab). That’ll bring your billing down to AU$79.54 a month.

Total minimum cost is AU$1,276.46

If you’ve got the cash to buy the Samsung Galaxy S22 outright, then this offer is the better deal. It’s available through Samsung’s official eBay store (which for what it's worth, seems to have attracted some negative user feedback).

Samsung Galaxy A73 (128GB) (opens in new tab)
Prime exclusive

Samsung Galaxy A73 (128GB) | AU$799 AU$619 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$180)

The Galaxy A73 comes from Samsung’s mid-range of phones, and it’s got a pretty impressive spec sheet for its price. It comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and it’s packing a 108MP wide-angle camera on the rear. We think that’s a pretty sweet deal for AU$619, just note this offer is only available to Amazon Prime members (opens in new tab).

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (256GB) (opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (256GB) | AU$2,499 AU$1,999 at Telstra (opens in new tab) (save AU$500)

This is the first foldable phone that we’d actually recommend to anyone, specifically those who consider themselves 'early adopters'. Telstra has sliced AU$500 off the RRP of this handset, and you can choose to buy it outright or pair it with a plan.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (128GB) (opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (128GB) | AU$999 AU$797 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$202)

The Galaxy S21 FE is now 20% off on Amazon. It’s the 'budget' member of the S21 family with pared-back specs, but it still delivers a vibrant display, a powerful processor, capable cameras and 5G connectivity, making this a bargain.

Amazon Kindle (opens in new tab)

Amazon Kindle | AU$139 AU$99 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$40)

Amazon has knocked its entry-level Kindle down to just AU$99. While it’s by no means the best ereader on the market, it has a built-in front light and a clear display for easy reading day or night. Pick it up now in black (opens in new tab) or white (opens in new tab).

It has a bright 6.8-inch display, a manually adjustable warm light, plus it’s thin and lightweight, offering a comfortable reading experience all-round. We can’t know for sure if it’ll be cheaper come Prime Day, but this is a good deal if you want it now.

Kobo Libra 2 | AU$279 AU$225.15 on Allphones eBay (opens in new tab) (save AU$53.85)

We’re big fans of the Kobo Libra 2, and we gave it a full five stars in our review (opens in new tab). It’s a good choice if you want to break out of Amazon’s Kindle ecosystem, and we like its asymmetric design and Bluetooth support for audiobooks. This deal is only available to eBay Plus members (opens in new tab) with the code PLFY20.

Headphones & speakers

UE Wonderboom 2 (opens in new tab)

UE Wonderboom 2 | AU$129 AU$85 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$44)

The short and stout UE Wonderboom 2 is now just AU$85 on Amazon, which is the lowest price we can remember seeing. We rate it as the best waterproof speaker (opens in new tab) you can buy, so it’s great for use outdoors. It pumps out deceptively great sound for its size too. Now discounted in black (opens in new tab), red (opens in new tab), and blue (opens in new tab).

Bose QuietComfort 45 (opens in new tab)

Bose QuietComfort 45 | AU$499.95 AU$395 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$104.95)

The Bose QuietComfort 45 are a strong successor to the incredibly popular Bose QC 35 II, and they’re now down to their lowest price yet of AU$395. These aren’t as good as the Bose 700 or the Sony WH-1000XM4, but they’re comfortable to wear and a good buy at 21% off.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds (opens in new tab)

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds | AU$399 AU$299 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$100)

This is the regular sale price of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, but it isn’t the cheapest we’ve seen (that was AU$250 back in February). They’re still a great buy at this price though, with powerful active noise cancellation, rich sound quality and some weatherproofing.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 (opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 | AU$219 AU$154 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$65)

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 come with active noise cancellation, and you’ll get about five hours of juice with ANC turned on (and the case can recharge them with a further 20 hours total). They’ve got improved sound and call quality, though you’re only getting an IPX2 water resistance rating.

Google Pixel Buds A-Series (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel Buds A-Series | AU$159 AU$129 at Google Store (opens in new tab) (save AU$30)

Google’s Pixel Buds A-Series offer up nearly all the same features as the Pixel Buds 2, only at half the price and with better bass response.

Jabra Elite 3 (opens in new tab)

Jabra Elite 3 | AU$119 AU$78 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$41)

The Elite 3 are Jabra’s first true wireless earbuds in this low price range, and Amazon has knocked them down to just AU$78 for EOFY. There’s been features cut to get them to this price, including no active noise cancellation and no adjustable EQ, but they still sound decent for the price. Available in all colours.

Jabra Elite 4 Active (opens in new tab)

Jabra Elite 7 Pro (opens in new tab)

Jabra Elite 7 Pro | AU$299 AU$198 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$101)

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro brings plenty of premium features to a lower price point than many of its competitors. That includes wireless charging and IP57 waterproofing, packaged into a compact and comfortable set of buds. Sound quality is good, but it’s not as clear and neutral as we’d like, and their noise cancellation isn’t best-in-class either.

Wearables

Apple Watch 6 (40mm, GPS + cellular) (opens in new tab)

Apple Watch 6 (40mm, GPS + cellular) | AU$749 AU$444.40 on Allphones eBay (opens in new tab) (save AU$304.60)

You’ll need to be an eBay Plus (opens in new tab) member to get this deal, and enter the code PLFY20 at checkout – only available in red (opens in new tab).

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 | AU$119 AU$79.15 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$39.85)

We’ve named the Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 as the best instant camera (opens in new tab) you can buy, and the lovely light blue (opens in new tab) version is now just AU$79.15. Its auto exposure and variable shutter speed help it take better pictures, and the adjustable lens lets you take close-up shots too. Land this deal at Amazon.

Nikon Z6 II (body only) (opens in new tab)

Nikon Z6 II (body only) | AU$3,599 AU$2,598 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,001)

With the Z6 II, Nikon has taken one of our favourite mirrorless cameras and addressed its main weaknesses. It inherits the same 24.5MP sensor from its predecessor, but it’s upgraded to blistering 14fps burst shooting (up from 12fps on the Z6), making this a great option for sports and wildlife photography.

Nikon Z7 II (body only) (opens in new tab)

Nikon Z7 II (body only) | AU$5,599 AU$4,155.55 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,443.45)

The Nikon Z7 II is a modest update of the original Z7, with dual processors that boost its all-round performance. You get 45.7MP on tap, and its image quality is exceptional, making it perfect for landscapes. Amazon has sliced just over AU$1,400 off the RRP of the body.

Sony A7S III (body only) (opens in new tab)

Sony A7S III (body only) | AU$5,398 AU$4,588 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$810)

The Sony A7S III is a full-frame mirrorless camera that’s the best of its kind for 4K filmmakers. Unfortunately it’s not cheap, so if you can get it discounted – like this AU$810 saving – then consider jumping on it, particularly if you’re a budding videographer.

Sony A7 IV (body only) (opens in new tab)

Sony A7 IV (body only) | AU$3,949 AU$3,499 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$450)

The Sony A7 IV is the best hybrid mirrorless camera you can buy right now, packing impressive image quality thanks to its 33MP sensor and powerful video features into its body. It’s only AU$450 off, but it’s the lowest we can find.

Canon EOS R5 (body only) (opens in new tab)

Canon EOS R5 (body only) | AU$5,998 AU$5,359 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$639)

With autofocus performance to rival Sony’s and a high-res 45MP sensor, this is one incredible mirrorless camera. We think it’s Canon’s best stills snapper, but it has limitations with video shooting. CameraPro is now offering the body for AU$639 off.

OM System OM-1 (body only) (opens in new tab)

OM System OM-1 (body only) | AU$3,199 AU$2,959 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$240)

This is the first camera body from the rebranded Olympus. It’s small, fun and weatherproofed, and it comes with a 20MP sensor, improved autofocus and better processing power. It’s also only been on the market for a couple of months, making this its first ever discount.

Fujifilm X-T4 (body only) (opens in new tab)

Fujifilm X-T4 (body only) | AU$2,188 AU$1,983 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$205)

After the Sony A7 IV, we rate the Fujifilm X-T4 as the next best mirrorless camera (opens in new tab) you can buy.  It has the retro aesthetic of a film camera, but inside, it’s packed with a 26.1MP sensor and top-notch in-body image stabilisation. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen, but it’s a great pick for anyone on a budget.

Fujifilm X100V (opens in new tab)

Fujifilm X100V | AU$1,948 AU$1,784 on CameraPro (opens in new tab) (save AU$164)

The latest in the line in one of Fujifilm’s most iconic cameras, the X100V brings weather sealing to this range for the first time. It’s a compact camera with a 26.1MP sensor and 4K video capabilities, so it’s pretty great if you want something easily portable for street photography.

Olympus Tough TG-6 (opens in new tab)

Olympus Tough TG-6 | AU$649 AU$534.65 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$114.35)

The Olympus Tough TG-6 tops our list of best waterproof cameras (opens in new tab) because it has a spec sheet that far exceeds what you’d expect from a somewhat niche shooter. This little beauty has a 12MP sensor with the option of shooting in Raw, and is capable of shooting 4K video.

 Also available at CameraPro (opens in new tab) at this price.

We rate Bitdefender as the best antivirus software (opens in new tab) you can buy, and we have for a few years now.

If you need coverage for Windows and Mac, go for Bitdefender Total Security.

Norton antivirus suites (opens in new tab)

Norton antivirus suites | save up to AU$110 (opens in new tab)

Norton is our second-favourite antivirus provider, and it’s now up to AU$110 off. It comes with a stack of features, including an intelligent firewall that’s genuinely helpful, and a cloud backup tool as well.

Trend Micro antivirus suites | save up to AU$124 (opens in new tab)

Trend Micro comes in at number three in our best antivirus guide, and now it’s up to AU$124 off for EOFY.

All of its packages protect PC, Mac and mobile devices too. It’s Basic package is now AU$20 off, while a one-year Ultimate subscription is AU$124 off.

EOFY sales 2022: what is it and when is it?

Australia’s end of financial year is June 30. That means, from July 1 to the end of October 2022, individuals and businesses will need to file their tax returns with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Prior to EOFY, retailers will be racing to shift old stock to make way for fresh items, and they’ll be slashing prices on plenty of products – which could be tax deductible if you use them for work-related purposes.

Australia’s EOFY sales traditionally begin June 1 and end on June 30, although many retailers jump the gun, offering a few tempting discounts to lure shoppers in towards the end of May. The best EOFY discounts will arrive in June though, and don’t expect to see all retailers coming out with month-long sales. 

We’ve been following the EOFY sales for quite a few years now, and we’ve found that deals often change throughout the month, so you’ll need to keep checking back in to see if what you’re after has seen a price drop. If you time it right, you can score yourself a fantastic deal.

EOFY sales 2022: deal predictions

If you want to save some money on electronics during Australia’s EOFY sales, you’ve come to the right place. We’re very familiar with tax-time deals, and can offer some predictions as to what might go on sale during EOFY 2022.

So, what kind of tech can you find during EOFY sales in Australia? Plenty – from laptops, computers, gaming consoles and gaming peripherals, to last year’s OLED TVs and noise-cancelling headphones. Here are our predictions for EOFY 2022:

Laptops, PCs & peripherals

Computing gear are some of the most popular items purchased during EOFY. Manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft are all likely to host sales on their sites, but you’ll also be able to grab laptops and desktop PCs from major retailers as well, with average discounts of about 15% to 20%.

You’ll be able to snag bargains on accessories as well, with printers, keyboards, mice and SSDs all going on sale during this time. We’ve also spotted lots of deals on AMD Ryzen CPUs lately, so keep an eye out for these too.

Gaming

Last year’s EOFY gaming discounts mainly landed on the Nintendo Switch console, but an unexpected deal did pop up on the Xbox Series S, which got a massive 25% discount through Big W’s eBay store.

There’s a possibility EOFY 2022 will deliver another big saving on the Xbox Series S, but considering the current-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X are in such short supply and often out of stock, we can almost guarantee there won’t be any surprise deals for them.

On the other hand, the Nintendo Switch OLED and Switch Lite could see some cracking deals (and keep an eye out for bundles too). There’ll also be some blockbuster gaming titles available for cheap if you’d like to expand your gaming library.

Smartphones & tablets

Good smartphone discounts are few and far between throughout the year, with decent deals on the iPhone 13 range and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra particularly hard to come by. Last year saw some small discounts on the then-current iPhone 12, with Telstra offering up to AU$200 off.

Android fans fared a little better, with up to AU$250 off the Google Pixel 4a. We’re less sure about what we’ll see this EOFY, but you might be able to score a good iPhone deal by checking out retailers such as Amazon, JB Hi-Fi or Telstra. Tablet sales are plummeting this year, which could potentially sway retailers to bring them down in price.

TVs, soundbars, speakers & headphones

There’s been plenty of TVs, soundbars and speakers on sale during the last couple of EOFY sales, so we don't expect that trend to change any time soon. We’ve already seen huge deals on sets such as the excellent LG C1 OLED outside of busy sales periods, while the superb Samsung QN85A Neo QLED got an insane AU$856 price cut last EOFY. With this in mind, we’re looking forward to seeing if these top TVs will drop during 2022 tax-time.

Portable speakers and headphones are another likely candidate for deals. We’re expecting to see deals on the top-notch Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones, now that the Sony WH-1000XM5 has been announced. For Bose fans, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are another set of cans that could get a steep price cut. If you prefer true wireless earbuds, keep an eye out for good savings on the Apple AirPods Pro, as these buds have seen several discounts on Amazon of late.

Cameras

The EOFY sales are also a great time for photographers – beginners, pros or hobbyists – to grab the latest gear. Last year saw some huge discounts on cameras, with a highlight being the Sony Alpha A7R IV, which got AU$1,950 slashed off its RRP.

EOFY sales on DSLRs, mirrorless cameras and compacts are all possible this year, or if you’re happy with the camera body you already own, keep an eye out for deals on lenses, tripods, bags and SD cards as well.

Smart home devices

Smart gadgets can now be found for every room in the home – from smart lights to smart security systems, and the speakers and displays to control them all. Last year’s EOFY sales didn’t see too many discounts on smart home devices, but a few retailers offered discounts on Google's Nest range – in particular the Google Nest Audio speaker and the Google Nest Wifi mesh networking system (which doubles as a smart speaker).

Home appliances

If the appliances in your home are feeling a little tired, the EOFY sales will help you save plenty on the brand-new appliances you want. You can expect to see bargains on Dyson vacuum cleaners, robovacs, fridges, dishwashers, washing machines and plenty more. Retailers such as Myer, David Jones and Peter's of Kensington will certainly have sales, where you could find great deals on smaller kitchen appliances too.

EOFY sales 2022: best offers from last year

Image (opens in new tab)

Xbox Series S | AU$364.65 on Big W eBay (save AU$134.35)

It may not be as powerful as the Xbox Series X, but it can still comfortably play next-gen games with clarity, speed and high frame rates. Last year’s EOFY sale saw this console get a AU$134 discount, and we’ve got our fingers crossed for a similar deal this year.

Image (opens in new tab)

Apple MacBook Pro M1 (13-inch) | 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD | AU$1,614.15 on Wireless1 eBay (save AU$284.85)

The MacBook Pro saw a rare 15% discount last EOFY, and with any luck, you’ll be able to get a similar discount this year. There are now newer 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros available, so we’ll be keeping our eyes on these models too.

Image (opens in new tab)

Sony WH-1000XM4 | AU$294.10 on The Good Guys eBay (save AU$104.90)

We think Sony's WH-1000XM4 headphones are the best you can buy, so to nab them for under AU$300 is a real treat. We haven’t seen them for less than AU$300 since February, so EOFY could be their next big price drop. 

Image (opens in new tab)

Samsung 75-inch QN85A Neo QLED TV | AU$3,639 on Appliances Online (save AU$856)

This 75-inch set was almost brand new during last year’s EOFY sales, so to see it with AU$856 wiped off the price was pretty remarkable. With a few of the manufacturer’s having unveiled their 2022 TV lineups, we’re hoping for more great discounts on TVs this June.

Image (opens in new tab)

LG 65-inch C1 OLED TV | AU$3,595 on Bing Lee (save AU$600)

The LG C1 OLED was another relatively new release during last year’s EOFY sales, so to snap it up with a AU$600 discount was excellent. We’ll likely see this OLED TV going for even less this EOFY, and there’s potential for its follow up, the LG C2 OLED (opens in new tab), to go on sale.
