AU$3,695 AU$2,444 at The Good Guys (save AU$1,251)
This is a quality TV. With its α9 Gen 5 AI Processor and Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro capabilities, images are superlative, while Dolby Atmos audio offers impressive surround sound. It's good for gamers too, with VRR support, a 1ms response time and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility. And its 65-inch size has a cool AU$1,250 discount attached at The Good Guys.
As one of the best soundbars that won't cost you an arm and a leg, the Sonos Beam offers more than you'd expect from a home cinema solution at this price.

For an inexpensive companion for your TV that still offers enough power and oomph to elevate your overall viewing experience, this Samsung HW-B450 soundbar is a solid option. Powerful bass and an excellent ability to elevate the audibility of dialogue are on offer here, with a very approachable AU$179 for Boxing Day.
Apple iPhone 13 (512GB) |
AU$1,749 AU$1,499 at Amazon (save AU$250)
If you can't extend to the cost of an iPhone 14, last year's iPhone 13s are super fast and still offer flagship features that are competitive in 2022, like a 6.1-in Super Retina OLED display and one of the best cameras available. The black and blue models are currently AU$250 off at Amazon, but if you'd prefer the green or pink options, they're available at Mwave for the same AU$1,499 price.
Fold it down and slip it into a pocket easily, the Flip 4 is a pretty powerful handset in a very compact design. The 512GB storage model is now AU$1,477, which is pretty great, considering the Samsung Education Store cut the price down to AU$1,295 earlier this month. All colours are on sale too, including black, blue, purple and pink.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (128GB) |
AU$1,849 from AU$1,497 at Amazon (save up to AU$352)
The Samsung S22 Ultra is a powerful Android device, rocking a 6.8-inch OLED screen, so is perhaps best-suited to those with larger hands. Although, you can get full use out of that mega screen with the phone’s built-in S Pen stylus, making this a truly versatile phone. The cheapest we’ve seen this phone was AU$1,295 via Samsung Education, but this deal is still good and open to anyone.
The Pixel 6a is Google’s latest budget handset, and while this isn't the lowest price we've seen for this phone (that was AU$499 from Telstra last month), it's still a decent offer. The Pixel 6a has a 6.1-inch FHD+ display, a snappy fingerprint scanner and clean software, and let's not forget the software-driven photography that Google has built a reputation on.
Google Nest Audio |
AU$149 AU$99 on the Google Store (save AU$50)
Like Google Assistant over all the other voice assistants? And would love to listen to a lot of music with good sound? Then grab this smart speaker for AU$50 off. Its mics pick up voice commands easily and it's got decent audio too. There aren't too many other smart speakers to match this one audio capabilities.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max |
AU$99 AU$49 (save AU$50)
Amazon's best streaming stick has been slashed to its lowest ever price for Black Friday, which is great for those who want a user friendly way to access all the best streaming services on their TV. Enjoy 4K streaming with support for HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos — complete with Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Also includes Alexa voice remote.
Amazon Echo Dot (2022; 5th gen) |
AU$79 AU$59 (save AU$20)
The fifth-generation of Echo Dot smart speakers are only a few months old, yet they continue to be on the receiving end of discounts. Amazon has once again applied the usual AU$20 discount to its diminutive Dots, bringing them down to AU$59. They may get discounted further on Boxing Day proper, but this is still a great price. With an Echo Dot, you'll have Alexa at your beck and call to help control smart home devices, tell you about the weather and stream some music too.
Amazon Fire TV Cube |
AU$219 AU$159 at Amazon (save AU$60)
Packing everything Amazon has to offer into one neat, cubed package, the Fire TV Cube is a 4K TV streamer and Alexa-powered smart speaker in one. It's the best Fire TV device, make no mistake, thanks to its superfast performance and useful remote. If you want to upgrade an older TV and delve into the world of app-based streaming, or you're not happy with your smart TV's user interface, the Amazon Fire TV Cube is a worthwhile addition.
Philips Hue smart plug |
AU$64.95 AU$48.71 on Amazon (save AU$16.24)
A smart plug is perhaps one of the easiest ways to experience smart home gadgets. Plug this into a wall socket and connect to the companion app via Bluetooth, then plug in a lamp or kettle. The app can help you set up automations so your lights go on and off automatically at set times, or you can use voice commands to get your kettle started in the morning.
Tablets and ereaders
Amazon Kindle Oasis |
AU$399 AU$319 at Amazon (save AU$80)
Despite its age, Amazon's Kindle Oasis is arguably still its best ereader. Of course, it's usually priced just high enough to put off some potential users. That said, those same people may think twice now that it's been slashed to AU$319 for the 8GB model.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2021, 8GB) |
AU$239 AU$189 (save AU$50)
Now at its lowest price since Black Friday, Amazon's most popular ereader is a steal at just AU$189 ahead of Boxing Day. Get a beautiful 6.8-inch screen, improved battery than earlier models before, and 8GB of storage.
Well lah-de-dah, it looks like the slightly fancier Paperwhite Signature Edition has also been discounted for this week's Boxing Day sales, offering a couple of minor upgrades over standard model, including automatic light adjustment and wireless charging.
Headphones and speakers
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless |
AU$599 AU$299 (save AU$300)
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless may have been replaced by a new fourth generation, but they are still an incredibly capable set of headphones. Offering great noise cancellation and sound, they're the perfect accompaniment to your music. Our only niggle when we first reviewed them was their price, so now they're half price for Boxing Day, we can properly recommend them.
Apple AirPods (2nd-gen) |
AU$219 AU$175 (save AU$44)
Dropping to only AU$175 ahead of this year's Boxing Day sales on Amazon, the Apple AirPods (2nd-gen) still offer excellent connectivity, wireless charging and the ability to access Siri without lifting a finger. If you own an iPhone and want to go wire-free with your music listening, they're a no brainer.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 |
AU$400 AU$299 (save AU$101)
If you prefer earbuds, however, then Amazon has also knocked a generous AU$101 off the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3. There really isn't much to fault these buds: great sound, even greater noise cancellation and a tidy and compact design, you can't go wrong.
Sony WF-1000XM4 |
AU$449 AU$298 on Amazon (save AU$151)
These little buds are some of the best money can buy and are now only AU$298 at Amazon. Offering beautiful sound, competitive ANC and great call quality, a saving of AU$151 off is a good deal. We did see these earbuds drop to AU$229 on Black Friday, but we're likely not going to see that price again this year.
Beats Flex |
AU$99.95 AU$79 (save AU$20.95)
We may now be accustomed to totally wire-free earbuds, but there is still a place for wireless earbuds that have a connecting cable, and the Beats Flex are some of the best there is. In particular, they're on our list of the best workout headphones and thanks to a combination of great battery life and reliable connectivity, they'll suit anyone with an active lifestyle. Yes, they work best with iDevices, but Android users should still take a look.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 |
AU$219 AU$130 (save AU$89)
Offering ANC, balanced sound and improved call quality from its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 have a lot to offer if you own a Samsung smartphone and need some fresh headphones to deliver tunes to your lugholes. Available in olive at this price, and in white, black and purple for slightly more, these light-weight buds are a bargain starting from AU$130.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 |
AU$599.95 AU$369 (save AU$230.95)
Stylish and offering outstanding noise cancellation, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are currently an absolute steal for just AU$369. They might be a couple of years old now, but the 700s still more than hold their own against newer competition, offering comfortably some of the best noise-cancellation on the market. Add to that stellar sound quality and now a much lower price, and we can't find a single thing to fault.
Jabra Elite 85t (Titanium Black)
AU$299 AU$178 at Amazon (save AU$121)
Impressive active noise-cancellation (ANC), stellar sound quality and a rather suave design, the Jabra Elite 85t are some of the best wireless earbuds you can buy. We noted that the price was a little steep in our full review, so now they have a AU$120 saving, they represent far greater value. You can also currently pick up the equally sexy Copper Black pair for AU$177.50.
UE Boom 3 (Night Black) |
AU$229 AU$148 (save AU$81)
This is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers you can get, so get the New Year party rocking with big sound from a small package... and for less too. You can get the same speaker for AU$149 at JB Hi-Fi, so this is a dollar cheaper at Myer, and it's another dollar cheaper at The Good Guys (AU$147). Where you choose to get it from is up to you of course, but trust us when we say, this will do well by the pool.
JBL Charge 4 Bluetooth speaker |
AU$230 AU$119 (save AU$111)
JBL's Charge 4 has now been replaced with a fifth generation, but it's still a brilliant Bluetooth speaker that will fill your room with sound or keep you company at the beach. Packing a long battery life, an IPX7 waterproof rating and powerful sound, it's sure to get your summer parties started. Amazon's discount is available on the black and red models.
Xbox Series S |
AU$499 AU$399 at Amazon (save AU$100)
To be honest, after the Xbox Series S received a AU$100 discount for Black Friday, we expected it to be discounted again for Boxing Day. Offering one of the most affordable ways to get into next-generation gaming, when combined with Xbox Game Pass (separate subscription), the Xbox Series S is a terrific machine. The more powerful Xbox Series X might now be in stock, but for great gaming on a budget, you can't go wrong with the Series S.
We've seen discounts on this Nintendo Switch bundle before, so it's good to see them coming back again in time for the holidays. Not only do you get the base Nintendo Switch console, but you also get a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a bonus three month Switch Online subscription, for the same price it would cost you for the console alone.
If you're going to spend most of your Switch-playing time in front of the TV, as opposed to handheld, this is Switch console to get.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves
AU$79.95 AU$28 at Amazon (save AU$51.95)
If you really want to show off how much of a gaming powerhouse the PS5 is, then you need to get yourself a copy of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves. Serving up unbelievable visuals and an engaging story that will keep gamers entertained for hours.
Horizon Forbidden West (PS5) |
AU$124.95 AU$39 (save AU$85.95)

Deathloop PS5 |
AU$79 AU$29 (save AU$50)
If you enjoy a thrilling game of cat and mouse, Deathloop could be right up your alley. You can choose to play as Colt, an assassin stuck in a time loop that he's desperately tying to break out of, or as Julianna, another assassin trying to keep him in it. Thoroughly entertaining, and now down to an exceptionally low AU$29.
As a handy holiday season saving, you can make a range of savings on new controllers for the Xbox Series S or X console with up to AU$26 off the controller in a variety of colours.
If you want a MacBook Pro with a big screen, then you should be checking out this current discount on the 16-inch model. It might be larger, heavier and more expensive than the 14-inch option, but if you can get past that, this MacBook is an absolute powerhouse. Now 10% off in 512GB and 1TB storage options.
If you want a slightly smaller screen, this 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro, comes equipped with Apple’s M1 Pro chip to deliver brilliant performance and a surprisingly long battery life. It’s a mightily impressive laptop for creatives. Discounted by 10% in both silver and space grey.
This 17.3-inch Omen is now a massive AU$1,470 off, which isn't a bad bargain for a machine toting the RTX 3080 Ti GPU. Accompanying it is an Intel i7-12700H processor. Add to that a 165Hz QHD screen and a 1TB SSD and you’ve got yourself a top-shelf gaming machine.
A bit more grunt under the hood as compared to other Lenovo Chromebooks on sale currently, this 13.3-inch option is powered by a Snapdragon 7c chip. Plus the usual 4GB of memory and a decent 128GB of storage rounds out the main specs. A great budget buy, particularly for students going into the new school year.
A respected name in the world of PC gaming, Alienware can be counted on when it comes to quality gaming-focused monitors. Right now, you can save over AU$600 on this 38-inch curved Alienware monitor, which offers a WQHD+ resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. Alternately, you can get the smaller 24.5-inch model for only AU$561 after a 20% discount.
Boasting adaptive AMD FreeSync functionality along with a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, this 24-inch Full HD PRISM+ curved gaming monitor has dropped to its lowest price in time for Boxing Day. Now only AU$225.
If you want to keep costs down but want something bigger and fancier, you could do much worse than the XQ340 Pro from PRISM+. It's a premium 34-inch QLED monitor that's both curved and ultra-wide, and which boasts a 165Hz refresh rate, making it a great option for gamers. Now discounted by a huge 47% off the RRP.
Logitech Lift Vertical (Rose) |
AU$129.95 AU$87 on Amazon (save AU$42.45)
The unusual Logitech Lift is a premium vertical mouse that aims to reduce strain on your wrist, arm and shoulder by letting you orient your hand in a more natural vertical position – and it's proven popular with both reviewers and consumers. The pink colour is 33% off on Amazon for Boxing Day, which'll put it a little closer within reach for many.
Logitech Z150 Speakers|
AU$49.95 AU$19 at Amazon (Save AU$30.95)
Speakers for PC don't come much cheaper than this deal on the Logitech Z150, which you can nab for under AU$20. While there's no earth-shattering subwoofer or fancy surround sound here, they're still a big step up from in-monitor speakers.
Fitbit Versa 4 |
AU$379 AU$322.15 at Myer (save AU$56.85)
All three colours of the latest version of Fitbit's most popular smartwatch are discounted at Myer until January 2. So if you're after a wearable with Google Assistant on board, the ability to take calls (there's a mic here), built-in GPS to map outdoor activities, and so much more, then pick this up.
If you aren't too fussed about the latest generation, you save more money and opt for the Fitbit Versa 3 for AU$197 from Amazon.
Garmin Fenix 6S (42mm) |
AU$999 AU$499 at Amazon (save AU$500)
It might not be the very latest model, but the Garmin Fenix 6S is still a monster of a multi-sports smartwatch. The list of features is almost endless, so if there's anything you can think about tracking, chances are it can track it. When we first reviewed it, we thought it was a tad expensive, but now that it's half price, it's an absolute steal.
The air we breathe isn't the cleanest. So investing in a heavy-duty air purifier like this AX90 is a pretty great idea, particularly if you have a large space to worry. This Samsung model is capable of purifying spaces up to 90sqm, and it's half price for Boxing Day too.

You can also slow cook, dehydrade, saute and more with this. This 5.7L model was over AU$35 cheaper for Black Friday, but this is still a decent bargain.

Boxing Day 2022 sales: when do they start?
Boxing Day occurs every year on the day right after Christmas, December 26. It's known as the last major sales event of the year, and while Boxing Day has traditionally been considered a one-day event, this has changed in recent years, with many retailers opting to keep the deals going until the end of the year.
So while the Boxing Day sales won't be around in time for last-minute Christmas shopping, those who are patient should still be able to score a great deal before the year comes to a close.
Where to shop during Boxing Day 2022
There'll be several retailers offering Boxing Day deals both in store and online this year, but there are some usual suspects that will surely have a great offer on a wide variety of tech.
Some of them are: Amazon Australia, JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, Bing Lee, Appliance Central, Appliances Online, HP, Lenovo, Dell and more.
