Attention bargain hunters: eBay's Click & Collect site is offering a $100 voucher to use at Woolworths or Big W when you spend $300 or more. You can also get a $50 voucher for orders over $149.99. In other words, you're essentially getting a third of your money back to spend at one of the aforementioned stores. Here are the details.


As we all know, both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in high demand. Stock is limited and retailers are battling over the next set of units. This means -- that for stores like EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and Big W -- pre-orders are all important. If they can prove demand is high at their store, they'll get more consoles.

That's why staff at Big W have been informed to try and sell pre-orders onto customers frustrated at the fact both consoles will most likely sell out quickly.


For the longest time in Australia, the Amazon Kindle Fire has been the best content tablet you could never have. Amazon has figured out that there's a giant island on the bottom of the world, and will now start selling the Fire range of tablets online and in retail stores, and much more.


When we reviewed the Kindle Fire HD last year, we were bitterly disappointed. Mainly because it was a good little device that just didn't have any of the great Amazon features available for Australians. That's about to change, however, with the news overnight that Amazon will make the Kindle Fire HD available for shipping to Australia. Hurrah!


The entry-level iPod Touch is one of those products that regularly sees small price drops below Apple's "official" selling price of $219, but it's been a while since I've seen any retailer willing to take a larger hit on it. Big W's current special sees it selling for $178; combined with a current free shipping promotion, this is a decent deal if you wanted an entry level iOS device.


Bring on the Lamingtons, Australia got the new iPad first! Too bad it doesn’t do 4G here. Maybe that’s why queues were clearly down. Gizmodo hit the streets of Sydney for Telstra’s midnight opening, while just across the road Apple faithful quietly considered an unexpected twist. Buy a $30 Telstra prepaid stater pack and they could grab the iPad outright (not on a plan) long before Apple opens at 8am. What’s an iPad camper to do?


Hard drive prices are creeping upwards rather rapidly, so if you need storage, it'd be wise to buy now. Big W's advertising a special on the Seagate 2TB external expansion drive for $88 until tomorrow. A few months ago that might have been unremarkable; now it's quite cheap.


Amazon's put up refurbished Kindles on its site from time to time, and it would appear that Big W has invested heavily, given that it's offering up refurb Kindle Keyboard models for $99 outright for online purchase. The Kindle's still the eBook reader to beat, and this is a solid $60 saving.
