The end of financial year (EOFY) is fast approaching and with it comes one of the biggest sales events of the year.
In a bid to clear stock before June 30 arrives, retailers slash prices on a huge array of products, including big ticket items like TVs, phones, laptops and appliances.
Not only does this present shoppers with an opportunity to bag themselves a great deal on top tech gear, but it also allows them to claim those big purchases on their tax return from July 1.
WHEN ARE THE END OF FINANCIAL YEAR SALES IN 2022?
End of financial year sale dates will vary from retailer to retailer. They can start any time from June 1, though most fall in the last two weeks of the month and finish up on June 30.
While this year’s sales haven’t started just yet, we will be listing the best tech offers here as they arrive – so be sure to bookmark this page to stay in the loop.
WHICH DEALS CAN I EXPECT TO SEE THIS END OF FINANCIAL YEAR?
Tech products are some of the hottest commodities over the EOFY sales season, making it prime time to shop for new TVs, laptops, tablets, phones, speakers, headphones, cameras, gaming consoles and smart home devices. We will also see plenty of deals on appliances, including stick vacuums, coffee machines and air fryers.
While offers will vary from store to store, it’s common to see items like laptops and phones go for up to $500 off, while TV models can be reduced by as much as $1,000. Typically, older models are more heavily discounted, but you will find new and popular items included in the sales mix too.
The EOFY sales also see offers on fashion, beauty, home products and more. To find out more about those deals, you can head to our full guide to the end of financial year 2022 sales.
WHERE TO SHOP THE BEST TECH DEALS THIS END OF FINANCIAL YEAR
With so many retailers competing to give shoppers the best offers, it can be difficult to know where to head to first. As most offers are available online as well as in-store, we recommend comparing prices across sites to find yourself the best price on the items you’re after.
Ultimately though, finding the best offer will depend on the item you’re shopping for. If you’re looking for a new laptop, for instance, electronics stores like The Good Guys will slash prices across a range of brands and models, giving you plenty of options to choose from. If you’re after a specific model, you can also check out the individual brand sites (eg HP or Microsoft) as they often have the most competitive prices.
If you’re shopping for smaller tech items like headphones or speakers, or just want to browse a range of offers at once, we meanwhile recommend heading to Amazon Australia. Not only does it always have plenty of end of financial year deals, but it typically has the best prices on popular items like Apple AirPods and Nintendo Switch consoles too.
To get an even better idea of what’s to come, you can also see a handful of the best tech deals from last year’s end of financial year sales listed below.
