Chores can suck, so why not get yourself a vacuum that sucks just as much (we mean that as a compliment, of course). To kick off the week, there’s a fantastic deal on one of the best Dyson vacuums available today – it’s a pleasure to use and will keep your home in tip-top shape, while also saving you a packet.

We’re starting to see the price of some slightly older tech drop too, and that’s the case with the Google Pixel 3. This is the cheapest the superb smartphone has ever been, dropping further than its Black Friday sale price. So if you’re after a great smartphone that balances top notch features with a relatively affordable price tag, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Another product that’s going to get cheaper now are the Samsung Galaxy Buds, with the second generation having been announced during the Unpacked 2020 event held recently. While anyone planning on pre-ordering the new Galaxy S20 range will snag the Buds Plus for free, the original Galaxy Buds are now cheaper than ever.

Some brilliant handpicked offers from last week are still live as well, so browse everything we’ve found.

Deals added Monday, February 17

Google Pixel 3 (64GB) | AU$589 (RRP AU$1,199; save AU$610)

With its new Pixel 4 sibling on the market and stealing the show, the older Pixel 3 is seeing a big price drop – and this price is the lowest we can remember ever seeing it. This smartphone has a single-lens 12.2MP rear camera and a f/1.8 aperture, with machine-learning software enhancing your photos behind-the-scenes. Score the 64GB Pixel 3 in Clearly White from Big W’s official eBay store, no checkout code needed.View Deal

Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead | AU$629.10 (RRP AU$799; save AU$169.90)

This cordless handstick vacuum from Dyson is one of our favourites at TechRadar. While this model has been succeeded by the Dyson V11 Absolute, this vacuum still delivers up to 60 minutes of suction power and has a bigger bin compared to previous generations. It can also transform into a smaller handheld vacuum which is well-suited to cleaning confined spaces such as your car. Available directly from Dyson’s eBay store, score this discount before February 19 by using the code PDV10 at checkout.View Deal

Samsung Galaxy Buds | AU$149 (RRP AU$249; save AU$100)

These true wireless ‘buds have a warm, bass-driven sound, and while they’re unlikely to match the power of a decent set of over-ear headphones, the audio is pretty impressive for in-ears. You don’t have to be an Android user to get these ‘buds, but if you are, you’ll get a few extra features through the Galaxy Wearable app, such as Find My Earbuds – always a handy tool. Available in black or white for AU$149 from Amazon Australia.View Deal

Previous days' deals that are still available

Sales are hardly for a single day, unless it's a special occasion. So we see no point in deleting old deals. We hang on to them for two weeks, so if you missed out on them on the day of posting and they're still available, you can still score yourself a great bargain.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus (4G, 256GB) | AU$1,255.80 (RRP AU$1,699; save AU$399)

Last week the lowest price on the 256GB Galaxy Note 10 Plus was AU$1,300, and now it’s dropped a further AU$45 thanks to Mobileciti on eBay. While it’s not a deep discount, if you can save almost AU$400 on the device, then we think it’s a winner. This smartphone has a huge 6.8-inch screen and an impressive triple-lens rear camera that can take ultra-wide shots. This offer, however, is only available on the Aura Black colour option. If you want to score this saving, use the code PICK100 at checkout before this offer ends on February 29.View Deal

Amazon Echo Show 8 | AU$114.50 (RRP AU$229; save AU$114.50)

Amazon is releasing the brand new Echo Show 8 in Australia later this month. The 8-inch smart display features a 1280 x 800 HD screen and stereo sound. You’ll be able to manage any compatible smart home device with the help of Alexa through the touchscreen or voice commands. It shares some of the specs of the bigger 10-inch Echo Show, but comes in at lower price. If you pre-order the device before February 25, you’ll get the smart display for half-price! That’s cheaper than the RRP of the 5-inch Echo Show 5. Available in charcoal fabric or sandstone fabric.View Deal

Panasonic TH-65GZ1000U 65-inch 4K OLED TV | AU$3,495 (RRP AU$3,995; save AU$500)

Panasonic recently announced it’s pulling its TV sets from the Australian market, which might explain this discount on an OLED panel that was released in July last year. This 65-inch screen has HDR10+ and Dolby Vision onboard, plus support for Dolby Atmos to deliver a truly immersive experience. Nab this deal from JB Hi-Fi while stocks last.View Deal

Surface Pro 7 with type cover | from AU$1,399 (RRP AU$1,749; save up to AU$350)

This ultra-portable, versatile 2-in-1 laptop will go the distance when it comes to coursework, and then some. It features the latest 10th-generation Intel Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM and a decent 128GB of storage onboard – a pretty decent spec sheet. Available directly from the Microsoft Store, this deal includes your choice of type cover, making it an excellent choice for both work and play.View Deal

HP Omen 17 gaming laptop | i7 / 16GB / 512GB / RTX 2070 | AU$2,400 (RRP AU$2,999; save AU$599)

With a striking design and a whole heap of power, this gaming laptop from HP is one of the best ways to get your next-level gaming on the go. Packing a mammoth 17.3-inch display, a 9th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, this will be more than capable of your daily needs, and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with 8GB of dedicated RAM will cover almost every gaming need you could have. Be sure to enter the code STUDY20% at checkout to knock the price down on HP's store.View Deal

Beats Solo 3 | AU$219 (RRP AU$299.95; save AU$80.95)

These stylish cans pack punchy bass and boast excellent wireless capabilities. Beats also promises the headphones have up to 40 hours of battery life, so you’ll get plenty of use out of a single charge. Thanks to Allphones, you can now get a deep AU$80 discount on the Beats Solo 3 in gold, rose gold or silver.View Deal

Jabra Elite 65t | AU$187 (RRP AU$279; save AU$92)

While these in-ear 'buds have recently seen an upgrade in the Jabra Elite 75t, we still think the slightly older Jabra Elite 65t is one of the best true wireless earbuds you can buy. That’s because they sound great, fit well, have a reliable wireless connection and are now even more affordable with a very decent AU$92 discount in the titanium black colour option.View Deal
