The best EOFY tech & gaming deals 2022

The mid-year sale season is the perfect time to snatch a sweet deal on a range of tech, including smart watches, tablets, games, and smart devices. And while many shoppers will head to retailers such as JB HiFi or The Good Guys, there’s plenty of discounts and bonuses on offer right now from both telcos and tech brands directly.

There’s a lot of deals out there this June, so we’ve compiled some of the best picks across a range of telcos and manufacturers. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and doesn’t include smaller items such as phone cases, so you may want to head to each brand’s website to find more offers.

Telstra EOFY tech and gaming deals

Alongside offering savings on new smartphones and home internet, Telstra is also cutting prices on a range of tech accessories, as well as offering a discount on the Xbox Series S.

Pick up the Series S on Telstra’s Xbox All Access plan before midnight on June 30, 2022, and you’ll save $5 per month off the price of the console. Xbox All Access allows customers to pay off the Xbox S over 24 months, rather than at full price upfront — so with the discount applied, you’ll save $120 in total.

Xbox All Access is priced at $28 per month (including the $5 price cut), or $672 over 24 months. Alongside the Series S console, you’ll also receive a wireless controller, and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for access to more than 100 high-quality games (plus online multiplayer, cloud gaming and EA Play memberships).

Outside of gaming, Telstra is also running deals on dozens of gadgets and accessories, including:

Tablets

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G: bonus gift bundle including Galaxy Buds Live + Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra book cover
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ 5G: bonus gift bundle including Galaxy Buds Live + Galaxy Tab S8+ book cover
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 5G: bonus gift bundle including Galaxy Buds Live + Galaxy Tab S8 book cover

All tablets can be added to a Telstra data-only/mobile broadband plan, which begin at $15 per month for 5GB of data and include options up to 400GB each month.
