Australia’s end of financial year sales are meant to kick off in June, but eBay doesn’t care: it’s just launched a huge sales event in the form of its eBay Plus Weekend sale. Think of it as Amazon Prime Day, except eBay, and instead of a day (or several) it’s a whole week running today through to June 2.
One particular highlight is New Pokemon Snap for AU$45: that’s a damn good price for a first-party Nintendo game that’s less than a month old.That went live on Saturday, and it’s still available: you can snap (heh) it up now.
We’ve listed a handful of gaming-related deals below, but there’s also some other stuff you may be interested in. As the name of the event implies, you’ll need to be an eBay Plus subscriber, but if you don’t want to fork out, never fear: 30-day free trials are available. If you want to stick around, it costs AU$4.99 a month, or AU$49 for the year. Just remember to cancel your subscription if you don’t want it to renew after 30 days.
In addition to the highlights below—which we’ll continue to update over the next few days—eBay is offering 20 percent off a huge array of goods on its storefront, to the tune of “millions of deals across fashion, tech, homewares and more”.
