Black Friday may be mere weeks away, but plenty of New Zealand retailers don’t want to wait for the big day (which, this year, is November 29) and are starting sales early. That makes for a great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done before the last-minute scramble hits! You could be one of those people who brags about getting their shopping done early, and you can actually enjoy the silly season – now there’s an idea.

In this new NZ deals article, we’re going to be hunting down the best tech, gaming and home entertainment deals three times a week so you can find bargains on gizmos and gadgets at a glance.

To start with, there’s discounts on one of our favourite Dell XPS laptops, and for you photographers out there, Mighty Ape is having a pre-Black Friday sale on a range of Sony cameras. Great for a gift this Christmas… or even just to treat yourself.

We’ll be regularly wading through the deals available in New Zealand from major retailers and brands including Mighty Ape, Dell, Microsoft, Catch, Wiggle, Fishpond and many more, so watch this space.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III | NZ$869 (was NZ$1,099; save NZ$230)

This pocket-sized compact camera isn’t the latest in Sony’s superb RX100 series, but with a NZ$230 saving to be had, it’s still a great buy. Its 20.1MP sensor offers excellent image quality, and although it’s not capable of 4K video, the 1080p footage from this little compact is top-notch. You’ll be hard pressed to find an RX100 series camera under the NZ$1,000 mark, making this a pretty decent bargain.View Deal
