Tax time is both a blessing and a curse. Nobody enjoys doing their taxes, but if you get a nice return, why not spend it! Every year, most Aussie retailers hold an EOFY sale. It's a great opportunity to grab a bargain or get a discount on a high-priced Item that you've been looking to splurge on.
Tax time may come with another perk if you're working from home. An item that's purchased for work purposes can be tax deductible, making EOFY a good time to grab hold of any items you've been waiting to snag.
EOFY sales are ending soon though, so don't hold out too long. Most retailers will end their offers on June 30, so you don't have long to take advantage of the price drops.
Below is a list of some of the big Aussie retailers offers EOFY discounts and deals. So have a look-see and pick up a bargain or two. Happy hunting!
