Previous days' deals that are still available

Dell XPS 15 (9500) | i5 / 8GB RAM / 512GB SSD | NZ$3,399 NZ$2,379 on Dell (save NZ$1,020)

The Dell XPS 15 is a beautiful machine with plenty of power under the hood. There are barely any bezels to speak of here, which make its bright 15-inch display really pop. This model is equipped with a 10th-gen Intel i5 processor, delivering fast performance in a laptop that’s light enough to carry around. It’s now a massive 30% off at Dell.View Deal

Secretlab Titan | NZ$649 NZ$614 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 it’s made with taller, broader gamers in mind with larger seating than the Omega below. Secretlab has taken NZ$35 off the PU Leather and SoftFabric models, with a big selection of colours available.View Deal

Secretlab Omega | NZ$599 NZ$564 on Secretlab (save NZ$35)

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. The seat is a little smaller than the Titan above, but we think it’ll suit most gamers just fine. It’s got a durable build, and it comes with plush neck and lumbar pillows made of memory foam for ultimate comfort. The PU Leather and SoftFabric models now come with NZ$35 discounts, all you’ve got to do is pick a colour.View Deal

Xbox Series S | NZ$549 NZ$521.55 on TheMarket (save NZ$27.45)

While not as powerful as the Xbox Series X, the Xbox Series S is still a next-gen console, and now you can nab it with NZ$27 off the RRP – not the best discount, but a saving nonetheless. The Series S is a digital-only device, but it can still comfortably play next-gen games with high frame rates, ray tracing and super-fast load times. It’s backwards compatible, but the lack of a disc drive could be a dealbreaker for some. Use the code JUNE5 to save.View Deal

Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 or Xbox One | NZ$89 NZ$49 on TheMarket (save NZ$40)

There’s been plenty of post-launch controversy surrounding Cyberpunk 2077, but its developer has committed to fix the glitches by rolling out patches. In any case, if you’re yet to play this dystopian sci-fi RPG, we’ve found with NZ$40 off at TheMarket. Discount is available for both PS4 or Xbox One.View Deal

Sony WF-1000XM3 | NZ$299 NZ$255.55 on TheMarket (save NZ$43.45)

We think the Sony WF-1000XM3’s are the best true wireless earbuds you can buy. The level of noise-cancellation Sony has squeezed into these music makers is exceedingly good for a pair of earbuds, and the battery life will last you around six hours, with more juice available from the charging case. Of course, they sound great too. Grab these earbuds at NZ$255 on TheMarket, available in black or silver. Use the code JUNE5 to redeem.View Deal

Sony WH-1000XM4 | NZ$439 NZ$387.60 on TheMarket (save NZ$51.40)

The Sony WH-1000XM4 are our favourite headphones here at TechRadar. They deliver exceptional noise cancellation and cutting-edge codec support. Music sounds warm and well-balanced, while DSEE Extreme works to bring better clarity to compressed formats. These headphones know when you’re talking too, and will automatically pause if they detect conversation. Snap up a discounted set black or silver using the code JUNE5.View Deal
