If you’re keen to shop the best of what’s still on offer, we’ve highlighted the cream of the crop on this page. And if you see something you like on sale today, our advice is to grab it, as most these discounts won’t be available for much longer.

There’s a decent variety of deals on offer, including smart home gadgets from Amazon and Google on the cheap, and a Fitbit Sense with a good price cut. Most these deals will likely end this week, so if you see something you like, don’t delay.

Cyber Monday deals: quick links

Cyber Monday 2021 deals still available

Gaming

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 | NZ$749 NZ$714 on Secretlab (save NZ$35)

We rate the Secretlab’s Titan as the best gaming chair you can buy, so why not get yourself the best seat in the house while it’s available for less? It’s built sturdy with premium materials, and we like that you’re able to choose your chair size. While this is only a small discount, it’s not bad for Secretlab’s top-rated gaming chair.

Secretlab Omega 2020

Secretlab Omega 2020 | NZ$669 NZ$629 on Secretlab (save NZ$40)

If you’d like to spend a little less on a luxe gaming chair (but still get all the comfort), you could opt for Secretlab’s Omega chair. It’s got a durable build, and it comes with plush neck and lumbar pillows made of memory foam for ultimate comfort. There’s a huge range of colours and fabrics now discounted by NZ$40 on Secretlab.

Headphones

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro | NZ$389 NZ$220 on Mobile Station (save NZ$169)

There’s a huge discount on these earbuds available from Mobile Station. The Galaxy Buds Pro are Samsung’s best earbuds yet, with noise cancellation, an IPX7 waterproof rating and overall pleasing sound. It’s not the same level of noise cancellation and sound quality you’d get from a high-end set of earbuds though. They play best with Samsung phones too.

Smartphones

Samsung Galaxy S21 (128GB)

Samsung Galaxy S21 (128GB) | NZ$1,299 NZ$1,000 on Mobile Station (save NZ$299)

It’s not the star of Samsung’s latest family of flagships, but the Galaxy S21 is still a fantastic phone. It’s got a versatile three-camera setup, alongside a powerful chipset and great battery life. It’s not the cheapest price we’ve seen on the phone – that was NZ$899 back in June – but this is still a good price if you missed out back then. This discount is available on the black variant.

Smart home

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) | NZ$69 NZ$28 on PB Tech (save NZ$41)

Consider jumping on this deal if you want an affordable speaker with Alexa smarts. It’s been replaced by the fourth-gen model (which is also discounted) but you’ll pay a fair whack less for this model which came out in 2019. Now just NZ$28 from PB Tech, use code SHIPPY21 for free shipping.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen)

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) | NZ$79 NZ$65 on PB Tech (save NZ$14)

PB Tech has cut the price on this already-affordable smart display, bringing the Echo Show 5 down to NZ$65. This second-gen version comes with an upgraded camera, and it has all the benefits of seeing as well as hearing the information Alexa gives you. There’s also access to Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Spotify and more. Use code SHIPPY21 for free shipping too.

Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen)

Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen) | NZ$89 NZ$44 on PB Tech (save NZ$45)

PB Tech has slashed over 50% off the Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen) for Cyber Monday. It’s an entry-level smart speaker, and its miniature size means it can easily and discreetly fit into any part of the home. And if you’re already set up with Google Assistant, the Nest Mini is a no brainer. Pick up this discounted speaker in either light grey or dark grey and save NZ$48. Enter SHIPPY21 to save on shipping.

Health & fitness

Fitbit Sense

Fitbit Sense | AU$449 AU$299 on Amazon Australia (save AU$150)

The lowest price we can find for the Fitbit Sense in New Zealand is NZ$399, and plenty of retailers are still selling it at its full price of NZ$449. With that in mind, this deal from Amazon Australia is excellent, available at AU$299 (about NZ$313). Discount available in black.

Laptops & monitors

Dell 32-inch curved 4K monitor (S3221QS)

Dell 32-inch curved 4K monitor (S3221QS) | NZ$959 NZ$575.40 on Dell (save NZ$383.60)

Stretching 32-inches, this curved 4K monitor comes with ultra-thin bezels on three sides to really help you make the most of your screen real estate. It uses a VA panel, which gets you better contrast and image depth compared to other screen types, but it does have the longest response times, so you might want to avoid this one if you’re a gamer. Nab this discount from Dell and save NZ$383.

Dell 34-inch curved gaming monitor (S3422DWG)

Dell 34-inch curved gaming monitor (S3422DWG) | NZ$1,039 NZ$709 on Dell (save NZ$330)

This huge 34-inch curved gaming monitor is now down to NZ$709 on Dell. It’s a VA panel, and there’s support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro built-in, which should minimise any chance of screen tearing. Pick it up from Dell and pocket NZ$330 worth of savings.

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday began in 2005 when the US’s National Retail Federation noticed a significant spike in online shopping on the Monday after Thanksgiving. The timing matched up with Black Friday, and it gave a boost to retailer’s online sales.

Cyber Monday is now firmly part of the Black Friday shopping phenomenon, and its popularity is sure to grow in New Zealand. Cyber Monday will arrive on November 29 this year, so you’ll have several days to score a bargain over the Black Friday weekend.

Where to shop during Cyber Monday 2021

While Cyber Monday is a somewhat new shopping event for Kiwis, plenty of retailers are sure to take part. The majority of deals will be the same offers that were available on Black Friday, provided that they didn’t sell out over the weekend.

You can expect deals from online-only sites such as TheMarket and Mighty Ape, but also on the website’s of traditional brick-and-mortar stores such as PB Tech, JB Hi-Fi, Noel Leeming and The Warehouse.

This is also the first year that Amazon Australia will be shipping to New Zealand over the Black Friday sales period. Kiwis don’t have full access to the Amazon Australia site though, so be aware that you may not be able to get what you’re looking for from the retail giant.

When does Cyber Monday end?

Cyber Monday usually wraps up at 11:59pm NZDT on Cyber Monday, marking an official end to the busy November sale season. You’ll likely notice some good-but-not-great deals hanging around for a day or two more, but most discounts on the big-ticket items will be over. Our advice is to add to your cart and check out when you see a really good price.
