Despite starting out in the US, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have recently swept the world with their incredible retail discounts. Australia has embraced the shopping phenomenon with most major technology retailers now jumping on the sales bandwagon. This year, Black Friday falls on November 25th, with Cyber Monday following closely afterwards on November 28th. Both hold great deals for buyers, so pay close attention to our insider scoop.
Thanks to our friends at MyDiscountDeals.com, we’ve got the best and biggest Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals so you don’t have to waste precious time. With Christmas just around the corner, this is your opportunity to spend big and save a lot on this year’s hottest technology.
Phones and TVs are well discounted at most stores, while the popular Apple TV is discounted at all screened locations. The resurgent Dick Smith is heavily discounting technology to appeal to its lagging consumer base, while JB Hi-Fi lagging behind somewhat due to the delayed declaration of their deals. Highlights from JB HiFi include $180 off the iPhone 7 and a massive $450 off the Samsung Galaxy s7. Kogan’s deals aren’t bad either, with 34% off the Samsung s7 edge.
Verdict: Dick Smith and JB HiFi are the places to go online if you want a good discount.
As always, gamers are spoiled for choice this Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Unfortunately EB Games didn’t participate in Black Friday, but we’ve considered their prices for comparison’s sake. The competition is fierce in this category. In terms of Aussie retailers, it’s hard to look past electronics giant JB Hi-Fi, who are offering impressive discounts on the XBOX 1, Sony PS4s and games for both.
Verdict: Head to JB Hi-Fi for the best gaming discounts.
