Amazon launched in Australia earlier this year, and to no one's surprise, caused a fair bit of panic to incumbent Australian retailers. But if you're a PC gaming enthusiast, it's likely you've barely registered the behemoth's arrival: it's slim pickings as far as significant savings are concerned.
Still, the retail giant remains a relatively fresh face in Australia, and it's likely the range of components, accessories and even software will expand over the coming months and years. As a result, it's worth keeping an eye out, and that's what we'll do on this page.
The deals below, valid as of May 2018, are mostly decent due to free shipping eligibility. Check back on a weekly basis to see if anything has been added.
Razer ORNATA Membrane Gaming Keyboard for $88.99
This Chroma-supported keyboard will set you back $129.95 if you buy it direct from Razer. Amazon is offering it for significant less, and with free shipping to boot.
It’s still pricey, but this price for this model is marginally cheaper than you’ll find elsewhere at the moment.
Razer NAGA Chroma MMO Mouse for $104
Again, not terribly cheap – some of the competition sells it for $99. But this Amazon offer includes free shipping, so you’ll end up saving a few dollars.
HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard for $122.56
Another situation where the price isn’t too impressive per se, but the free shipping makes it a few bucks cheaper than elsewhere.
Plantronics Rig 400 PC Headset for $68
This is just over ten bucks cheaper than you’ll find either direct or via EB Games, and comes with free shipping as well. Probably the best way to buy a set of Rig 400s.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for $26
Who buys physical PC games anymore? Very few people, we’d wager, but at this price it might be worth steering off course.
Doom for $24
...and the same applies for Doom – it’s probably been on sale for around this price on Steam, but this figure seems permanent on Amazon and is nicely affordable.
