Coles is expanding its new Best Buys deals to 58 stores, starting this Friday (June 12), with bedding and tech gadgets on offer.
This week’s bargain haul consists mostly of homewares and sleepwear, including most notably a 6.5kg weighted blanket on sale for just $79. The cult sleepwear item, said to induce better sleep, usually retails for over $200, so this is some serious savings.
