Black Friday sales have come and gone, but now we're onto Cyber Monday. While it's an extension of the same sales event, there's a bit more of a focus on tech deals, with mostly online retailers taking part. As always, we're seeing some fantastic bargains on a wide variety of in-demand items!
This year, Australia's Black Friday sales event officially kicked off at the stroke of midnight (AEDT) on November 24, with deals set to continue until the end of Cyber Monday at 11:59pm (AEDT) on November 27.
Savings can be found on big-ticket items, including TVs, laptops and phones, along with a great selection of products that land squarely in impulse purchase territory, such as headphones, fitness trackers, small appliances and PC peripherals, to name just a few.

Black Friday sales 2023 — 10 best deals still available
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 (256GB) |
AU$1,649 AU$1,347 (save up to AU$302)
Arguably the top flip phone on the market right now, Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 5 is a terrific refinement on what's come before, with a zero-gap hinge and a larger outer display. Right now, both the 256GB and 512GB models are discounted by up to AU$302, depending on the specific capacity and colour. At 256GB, the Cream colourway is the only one that gets that full discount, while all four colours in 512GB are down to AU$1,547 (originally AU$1,849).
JB Hi-Fi has a pretty low ticket price on the 256GB version of the Pixel Pro 8, which released only recently, so the discount shown on the product page is seemingly miniscule. However, note that the actual RRP of the 256GB Pixel Pro 8 is AU$1,799, meaning this is a very decent AU$422 discount on a beautiful handset that boasts improved camera and AI-powered features. There's also a 7-year commitment from Google for ongoing updates, and a bonus AU$100 JB Hi-Fi gift card in this offer.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro |
AU$349 AU$213 (save AU$136)
A fantastic set of earbuds which are used frequently by this particular writer, Samsung's Galaxy Buds 2 Pro delivers hi-res 24-bit end-to-end audio support as well as Dolby Atmos, great noise cancellation and IPX7 waterproofing. You'll get around five hours of battery life from the buds alone, though you'll get an additional 18 hours from the provided charging case. Now only AU$213.
Sony HTX8500 soundbar |
AU$749 AU$399 at Amazon (save AU$350)
Our mates over at TechRadar gave Sony's HTX8500 a glowing 5 star review, so you know this soundbar means business. It may not have upfiring speakers, but the audio performance that comes out of this slimline soundbar is truly great. Now discounted by a massive AU$350.
This amazing 55-inch OLED is still incredibly cheap on Cyber Monday. Save AU$1,265 off the RRP over at Appliance Central.
The best TV in LG's 2023 OLED lineup, the G3 OLED evo is an absolute stunner. What makes it better than its siblings? In one word: brightness. Yes, the G3 OLED evo is significantly brighter than LG's other OLEDs thanks to Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology which distributes light in an improved manner.
Xbox Series X (1TB) console |
AU$799 AU$644 at Amazon (save AU$155)
Microsoft's Xbox Series X has hit its lowest ever price on Amazon ahead of Black Friday, with the powerhouse gaming console reduced to just AU$644, which is a huge saving of AU$155 on the RRP. Includes one standard Xbox Series X controller and 1TB of super-fast SSD storage.
This flagship iPad isn't cheap, but it's got an incredible 26% discount — which is basically unheard of for any Apple product. With an 11-inch screen and M1 processor and a massive 2TB of storage, if you add a keyboard cover and this one is definitely capable of being a powerful (and super compact) laptop replacement.
Need some decent gaming power in your laptop? This MSI GF63 Thin boasts an RTX 4060 graphics card and 16GB of RAM and is currently going for AU$1,274, which is pretty darn good. Sure, its 12th-gen i5 CPU isn't the most powerful around, but this shouldn't be an issue when gaming on a 1080p display at 144Hz.
