    Holding out for the quadruple stack EOFY Lenovo deal like last year.

    • Their biggest discount sale for EOFY ($400 off the model I bought)
    • AMEX cash back ($300 last year)
    • 12% cash back from Cash Rewards or Shop Back
    • Salary Sacrifice

    Got me a $2400 X1 Carbon 6th gen just released that month for about $700

    •  

      ($2400-$400)x0.88-$300=$1460 before salary sacrifice
      Am I missing something? (Just trying to copy your success for eofy :)

        Yep, that's right. The big bonus is that the salary sacrifice is based on the invoice amount which was $2000.

        •  

          Also tends to work for travelling overseas where GST refund is based on invoice amount which doesn't include cash backs and discounts (e.g. eBay 20%)

      And you could potentially sell the other laptop for a profit too. Jeebus.

  •  

    one needs to be not in full command of own mental faculties to consider this a good deal.

  •  

    What you mean by salary sacrifice?

    •  

      Means that some workers can allocate a certain amount of money pre-tax which can be used to purchase work related items, conferences etc

      Some work places allow you to salary sacrifice laptops and cars. The cars aren't good deals because you incur fringe benefit tax but laptops don't. So you buy the laptop (even 2nd hand if you can get a GST invoice) and then expense that to payroll. They give you the whole invoice amount back and then debit your salary pre-tax and less the GST in your next salary run. The laptop has to be used for at least 51% work purposes though. I use mine 100% for work (my IT wiped it and out their software on it) so they think I'm mad for not just getting a free laptop from them but I got my X1 Carbon for about $700 and will sell it for about $1000 12 months later. So not only do I get to use the best business laptop in the world for 12 months I also make a profit on it.

        Bit confusing what the government is contributing but I have a feeling the proper name for this isn’t called salary sacrifice

        According to one accountant, if you sell it then you need to declare the it, no?
        Thanks for the salary sacrifice explanation, makes a big difference.

      •  

        So if I read this right the company pays the GST on this for you, out of your withheld tax?

        •  

          Not sure who pays it but someone does. But that's not the biggest tax gain. Because you you pay pre-income tax then you save on that to.

            @carleast: I don't fully understand tax workings, but I'm kinda there on your explanations. Wonder if it works on 'work phones' too, hehe.

              @Skinnerr: The phone situation works differently. If you pay for you phone and service but use it for work then you can claim a tax deduction on both each year. Talk to your accountant about that.

              To salary sacrifice a laptop you need to talk to your employer. If you own your own business then have a word with yourself 😁

    My Thinkpad E490 has 128G storage and same CPU, but the RAM is 8GB DDR4 2666.

  •  

    I'm looking for a decent 13-15" laptop (I have Amex). Price between $800-$1,400. I really wanted the ASUS 14 flip which was posted in another deal but there were only six (sold out pretty quick). Are there any other better deals than this (discounts, or AMEX cashbacks etc.) I cannot wait until EOFY.

    I'm guessing ram is not upgradable, its soldered on it
