Buckscoop, who aren't doing cashback anymore, are a great source for competitive daily deals. I've been following them for over a year now and have picked up a number of bargains via their Deals page. The freebies section isn't as good though.

Found lots of great deals at - they have a nice price comparison plus a nice collection of discounts and coupons for aussie online stores which are always handy to use


MaryW posted a comment - not bad either. Apparently they also do wholesale pricing.

I like using - aggregates all the deals sites so I don't need to visit each one! Perfect!

None of these sites are actually particularly flash with a bargain. I find that the newer models that they advertise are cheaper in a number of other places by doing next to no extra checking on the web (not so much appliances online they seem to be good). Go to a site like for computers or actually search with a part number and you will always turn up something... Just be a little wary when it comes to shipping prices or hidden shipping prices. Also be wary of items that are refurbished even when they have a manufacturers warranty... Just saying.

That's why I use Buckscoop - their deals seem to carry comprehensive price comparisons and they almost always include shipping (and any other hidden costs) in the titles so no surprises at checkout.


BradP1 posted a comment is another good one for appliances. Prices similar to appliancesonline once you factor in delivery.
