Deals of the week: One dollar holidays, JB Hi-Fi and health cover!

As we head into the Easter long weekend, many of you will be on the lookout for cheap chocolate eggs. For me, though, this week it’s been all about electronics, after both my laptop and smartphone died on the same day!

The silver lining to this doubly dark cloud is that I found some great bargains in this week’s JB Hi-Fi catalogue. And it’s not just phones and laptops that are on special.

Meanwhile, with health insurance premiums about to go up from 1 April, Compare Club has a number of deals available from the health insurers on their panel.

And for those looking to have a holiday break after Easter, Discovery Parks has some caravan sites available at a number of locations at bargain basement prices!

JB, you’ve done it again!

If, like me, you’re after an iPhone, JB Hi-Fi has a couple of iPhone 14 models available for at least $200 off the ticket price. There are also iPhone 15s, and for those of you who are not ‘Apple’-minded there are some specials on Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy phones as well.

Over in the world of laptop computers, JB’s Lenovo prices are good, and they have several HP Pavilion notebooks on special. If the HP notebooks tickle your fancy, you’ll need to hurry, as those specials end today (28 March)!

If you’re looking for a post-Easter health kick, check out some of the JB health and fitness deals. They’ve got a range of smart watches at reduced prices until mid-April, as well as some very cool-looking massage guns!

Health insurance

From health equipment to health insurance. Financial marketplace Compare Club* currently has some excellent deals available from a number of the insurers on their panel. Australian Unity, Bupa, HCF, NIB, Peoplecare, and Latrobe are all offering several weeks free on your cover for varying lengths. All have T&Cs that apply. 

Time for a holiday?

Some people feel they need a holiday after the Easter break, especially if that involves a host of family catch-ups. If you’re in that category, and in (or not too far from) Victoria, Discovery Parks can help. 

For limited periods during April, Discovery Parks are offering $1* sites! These are available at Nagambie Lakes in Victoria and Maidens Inn Moama on the Murray River. The weather is often calm and mild in south-eastern Australia in April, so these could be the perfect wind-down getaway destinations.

*Terms and conditions apply

But let’s not forget Easter!

Yes, let’s not! If chocolate is your thing, then a trip to Coles could be in order. Among the Easter specials available there are Cadbury bunnies and egg packs at 30 per cent off, Kit Kat and Smarties ‘Incredible Eggs’ also at 30 per cent off, and Lindt chocolate egg packs at half price!
