Best Black Friday technology deals: save on TVs, phones, games

Black Friday 2023

Black Friday sales have arrived with a bang, bringing many great discounts on technology from the hottest brands including Apple, Samsung, LG and more. Australians are expected to spend more than $6 billion during the sales, as good an indication as any that we’ve adopted the overseas retail event as our own.

Last year’s sales saw huge discounts on devices from many of the biggest brands, including phones, computers, and home entertainment. If you could name it, it was likely on sale. Black Friday is officially 24 November, with discounts typically running through to 27 November, on a day known as ‘Cyber Monday’. Despite this, many retailers have had discounts live for a while now, and even advertising deals for the rest of the month.

Check out the best Black Friday technology deals below, which will be updated regularly as new sales go live. While you’re at it, make sure to keep an eye out for scams during the increased shopping activity.
