It came and went so fast — both the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales have concluded for 2023, but even though the official dates have passed, there's still a stack of deals on offer across a huge range of products.
This year, Cyber Monday kicked off at the stroke of midnight (AEDT) on November 27, and officially ended at 11:59pm (AEDT). But you're in luck if you missed it — a bunch of sellers have ongoing sales into the last week of November, including Amazon's Black Friday sale, that doesn't end until December 3.
As the name might suggest, Cyber Monday itself often finds retailers embracing a greater focus on tech items, so you can expect to find amazing savings TVs, laptops, tablets, headphones and more as the likes of Amazon, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Google and more slash prices on their most sought after products.
That said, you have to act fast — we don't know how long the following post-Cyber Monday deals will last.

Echo Studio smart speaker |
AU$349 AU$249 (save AU$100)
Amazon's Echo Studio is a powerful smart speaker with built-in Alexa voice control that supports Dolby Atmos and 3D audio support, which works a treat thanks to its cylindrical design. An affordable alternative to Apple's HomePod, now a cool AU$100 off in the continuing Black Friday sales on Amazon.
Fancy yourself a bit of an audiophile? This set of IE 600 in-ear monitors from Sennheiser provides audiophile-level sound and are now reduced by a cool AU$608, which is huge. Alternatively, if you're less precious about audio quality, you could opt for the IE 300 in this same listing, now down to just AU$200.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro |
AU$349 AU$239 at Amazon (save AU$110)
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$239.
AU$549 AU$489 at Amazon (save AU$60)
Sony's best pair of noise-cancelling over-ear cans (and #1 on our list of the best headphones overall) the XM5s have periodically been up to AU$50 cheaper than this, but if you've been hanging on for a discount then this AU$489 price from Amazon is the current lowest Aussie price for Black Friday 2023. There's a decent improvement in overall sound quality vs the previous generation XM4s, but you do pay a premium for it.
Sony WF-1000XM5 |
AU$419 AU$375 at Amazon (save AU$44)
Sony's full-featured and fantastic-sounding flagship earbuds offer class-leading noise-cancelling and an extensive list of features. We scored them 4.5/5 in our unbiased review and they've taken the #1 spot in our list of the best wireless earbuds. As such, any discount on this excellent set of in-ears is a welcome one, even if its only 12%.
Sony WF-C700N |
AU$148 AU$125 (save AU$23)
If the Sony buds listed above are a little rich for your blood, you could opt for the company's budget alternative, the WF-C700N. Not only do they sound great, they offer ANC, along with IPX4 splash resistance, and up to 7.5 hours of battery on the buds alone (15 hours with the case). Excellent value for money.
While the Sony's WH-1000XM4 has been succeeded by the XM5, the former is arguably a better purchase for most people, thanks to its lower price point. It's still one of the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy, offering excellent sound quality, class-leading noise cancellation and a foldable design for more compact storage. Admittedly, it's been a couple years since the XM4 has hit its lowest price, so there's a chance this price won't change much on Black Friday proper. Use code HGTNOV at checkout for the full discount. If you prefer Amazon, they're AU$368 there.
Nothing Ear 2 |
AU$219 AU$186 at Amazon (save AU$33)
If you're all about style, you might want to consider these Nothing Ear 2 earbuds, which are now discounted by 15%. Stylish as the are, they thankfully have substance to match, boasting hi-res audio support, ANC and powerful drivers. Available now in either the Black or the White colourway for only AU$186.
Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones |
AU$649.95 AU$548.25 at Amazon (save AU$101.70)
Officially the lowest price we've seen on Bose's top of the line QuietComfort Ultra Headphones at AU$548.25, this deal is tough to beat. These are among the best over-ear ANC headphones you can currently buy, and they're now discounted by a cool AU$101.70.
Despite the fact that they've since been outpaced by Bose's own QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds, the QC Earbuds II are still fantastic, offering best-in-class noise cancellation and stunning sound quality. Amazon has dropped the price further since last week, bringing the discount amount to AU$130.
JBL Pro 2 TWS earbuds |
AU$199 AU$169 with Myer One (save AU$30)
These are a great set of true wireless buds for the price — you get up to 10 hours of playback on the buds alone, plus another 30 hours in the case, and there's Qi-compatible wireless charging and speed charging too. They might not offer class-leading noise-cancellation, but they will shut out a lot of the ambient sounds around you. And credit needs to be given to their sleek design. Available in Black and Silver for the same price of AU$169.
Bose SoundLink Flex |
AU$249.95 AU$129 on Amazon (save AU$120.95)
With a compact and lightweight chassis and respectable audio (given its size), this Bluetooth speaker from Bose is one of the more stylish options around. While it didn't quite make our list of the best Bluetooth speakers, at 28% off we reckon it's worth overlooking its few shortcomings.
JBL Flip 6 |
AU$169.95 AU$126 (save AU$43.95)
If you're after a compact and affordable Bluetooth speaker that can still deliver loud audio, then JBL's Flip 6 is a good option. It provides up to 12 hours of playback on a single charge, is IPX7-rated against dust and water, and provides a nice amount of bass. Now discounted in a variety of bright colours.
Anker Soundcore Flare 2 |
AU$120 AU$76 (save AU$44)
Anker's Soundcore Flare 2 was already priced quite low given its strong audio output, but this discount brings it down even further to just AU$76, which is an absolute steal. Offers IPX7 water resistance, 360-degree sound and a colourful light show.
- Appliance Central: LG C3 OLEDs on sale
- Appliances Online: discounts on major brands
- The Good Guys: save on TVs, projectors and media players
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.
In the market for a big TV? This 75-incher from LG is worth considering. Retailer Appliance Central has dropped both its list price and the discounted price since last week, making this an even better deal. Sporting thousands of Mini LEDs for excellent contrast and brightness control, LG QNED offers a more affordable alternative to its top of the line OLED TVs.
Arguably one of the best OLEDs on the market, the 65-inch version of Samsung's S90C has received a mammoth AU$1,454 discount for Black Friday. While its S95C sibling is brighter, this is still one of the brightest OLED TVs you can buy right now, offering excellent detail and brilliant colours as well.
Samsung's OLED TVs are brighter than the competition, but it's worth noting that its Neo QLED screens are brighter still. The QN85C is one of Samsung's entry level Mini LED TVs, but don't let that dissuade you, as this is still a gorgeous telly that's packed with high-end features.
Sony X90L 55-inch 4K TV |
AU$2,295 AU$1,680 at Bing Lee (save AU$615)
Willing to spend a little more for your PS5 gaming TV? The X90L offers improved brightness and local dimming over its predecessor, and also offers HDMI 2.1 support for features like 4K/120, VRR, ALLM and Game Mode. A solid option for gamers who want quality without breaking the bank.
Samsung's second generation release of The Freestyle Projector has been discounted by a sweet AU$319 post Cyber Weekend, bringing its price down to just AU$980. This 2nd Gen model comes with increased memory, which should make for a smoother experience than its sluggish predecessor. It also comes with Samsung's Gaming Hub built-in, which is handy for Xbox Game Pass users.
If your smart TV ain't cutting it when it comes to actual smarts, adding this Chromecast gives you the full Google TV interface with speedy performance and every streaming app under the sun. This 4K model is designed for newer UHD sets, so if you're rocking an older 1080p TV you'll likely want to opt for the cheaper 'Chromecast with Google TV' model which is down to an incredible AU$37 on Amazon – the lowest we've ever seen.
Released less than 2 months ago, Amazon's latest flagship Fire TV Stick is a massive 55% off (AU$65) in this Black Friday deal. Simply plug this into the HDMI port of a TV or monitor and you’ll get access to the top Aussie streaming services in a slick and modern interface. New in this year's model is a faster processor, double the storage (16GB in total) and Wi-Fi 6E support.
Nvidia Shield TV Pro |
AU$349.95 AU$278 (save AU$71.95)
On top of being a powerful 4k streaming device for use with services like Netflix and Disney Plus, Nvidia Shield TV Pro is great for streaming games via GeForce Now. It offers AI-based upscaling, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and you also have access to USB ports for additional external storage and game controllers. Supports Google Assistant, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

- eBay: use SAVNOV23 to save at The Gamesmen

So if you're looking for the cheapest Switch around, this is the best one we've seen so far. Please note, this is not the OLED model.
Xbox Series X|S controller|
AU$89.95 from AU$69 on Amazon (save up to AU$20.95)
Microsoft's Xbox controllers are often reduced for Black Friday, but with the caveat that different colours carry different discounts — and that's the case this year. Amazon has the black and white units for AU$69 each. These Series X|S models have built-in Bluetooth, so they're great for PC and Android use too.
Nintendo Switch OLED |
AU$549.95 AU$449 at The Gamesmen eBay (save AU$98.28)
If you're hyped about all things Zelda, this Tears of the Kingdom-themed Nintendo Switch OLED might be up your alley. Score a decent AU$100 off the RRP in this deal by using the checkout code HGTNOV. Note that this deal is for the console only, and does not include a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Meta Quest 2 (256GB) |
AU$589.99 AU$499.99 on Amazon (save AU$90)
Meta's accessible and reasonably priced Quest 2 VR headset is a little more appealing with this 15% discount, available on the 256GB version on Amazon. This is the lowest outright price it's ever been, surpassing previous Prime Day or Black Friday deals, which usually only included Amazon credit.

AU$799 AU$682.89 at Dick Smith eBay (save AU$93.40)

Tablets & ereaders
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$1,299, 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.
MSI's Stealth 14 Studio is as sleek and stylish as laptops get. It sports the latest 13th-gen i7 processor and an RTX 4050 GPU, so it should be fairly beastly in the gaming department, but will also work well for productivity. It carries a 14-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS display, and boasts Thunderbolt 4 with up to 100W PD support. Now discounted by AU$960.

AU$343 AU$262 (save AU$81)
