When does the EOFY sale start and end?

End of financial year (EOFY) sales typically commence in late May or early June and wrap up by the end of June. Although, some brands and retailers opt for shorter sales durations or occasionally extend their promotions.

How does this compare to other sales?

Both EOFY and other sales events like Black Friday, Boxing Day and Click Frenzy offer heavy discounts, but there are key differences.

EOFY sales (typically in June) often focus on clearing stock, potentially leading to deeper discounts on last season’s models. Events like Black Friday and Boxing Day might have more brand-new releases on sale, but competition can be fierce.

Ultimately, the best time to buy depends on your needs. For the biggest potential price drop on a specific appliance, EOFY might be your winner.

What is the EOFY sale?

The EOFY sale, standing for End of Financial Year sale, is a major retail event in Australia that typically occurs in June. It’s a time when businesses offer discounts to clear out stock and finalise their financial records before the new fiscal year begins on July 1st.

Here’s a breakdown of what makes an EOFY sale attractive to shoppers:

Substantial discounts

Retailers slash prices significantly to move inventory, often resulting in some of the year’s best deals on electronics, home appliances and more.

Tax deductions

Shoppers can take advantage of potential tax deductions, particularly for business-related purchases made before the fiscal year ends.

Variety of offers

A wide range of products go on sale, from high-end electronics to everyday household items, catering to diverse needs.

Budget-friendly shopping

The mid-year timing allows you to plan your purchases around financial midpoints, making it easier to budget for big-ticket items in time for end-of-year events like Christmas.

Competition

With many retailers participating, the competition drives prices down further, providing consumers with better bargains and more options.
