Amazon Australia has become a household name since it launched locally in 2017, offering a massive selection of products across almost every imaginable category. The e-commerce giant sells tech, kitchen and home appliances, furniture and even household essentials like cleaning supplies and imported snacks. And thanks to some of its awesome daily deals, you rarely pay full price. 

We’re rounding up the current top offers on this page, and our secret to finding the best bargains on Amazon is scouring its "Today's Deals" page multiple times a week. After the Big Smile Sale in March, we anticipated that there would be fewer deals this month in the lead up Amazon Prime Day. However, Amazon refuses to let the deals stop, with notable markdowns across a range of products, like headphones, tablets, TVs, and more, this week alone. 

It's also worth mentioning that being a Prime member pays off, especially when it comes to deals. In addition to free expedited shipping to eligible suburbs, certain discounts or offers we've highlighted below do require a Prime membership. So, if you want to maximise your savings on these Amazon AU deals, then we suggest signing up for Amazon Prime here

Here are the best Amazon AU specials we've found this week:

With savings of up to AU$750 on offer, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 discount brings it into a league of its own. We've praised its outstanding camera performance, larger flex window and speedy processor in our review — and now this price makes it even better.

We gave these Anker earbuds a 4 out of 5 stars in our review — and for good reason. The Liberty 4 NC are fantastic-sounding buds for any budget audiophile.

Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless earbuds | AU$259.95 AU$158

Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless earbuds | AU$259.95 AU$158 (save AU$101.95)

In our review, we called these earbuds a true alternative to first-generation AirPods thanks to respectable battery life and affordability. Now, the earbuds are even more affordable with an AU$101.95 discount. Do note though, the earbuds don't come with wireless charging capabilities, but you'll get up to 24 hours of playback from one charge alone, which is rather impressive.
