Big W have another promotion on the Lenovo C340 Chromebook at $395 (+ delivery) with a $100 Wish egift card for online orders only. Whilst not as good as the last deal, at $303 delivered for Sydney (net of gift card), it's still a decent deal on a budget Chromebook. Don’t forget you can buy this using discounted Wish gift cards too. The bonus gift card is accepted at Woolworths and can be added to the Woolworths Money app for tracking making it a relatively useful gift card.
BONUS $100 BIG W egift Card to be emailed within 7 days of product being shipped. Offer exclusive to Online Home Delivery orders. Ends 29.01.2020
The Lenovo C340 Chromebook with the Celeron N4000 processor seems to have some decent reviews online (TL;DR it's a decent budget 2-in-1 Chromebook but has thick bezels and a HD rather than FHD IPS touchscreen). Whilst Big W does not list the exact specifications, Lenovo Australia only lists one specification (but two colours) of the Lenovo Chromebook C340-11 with the following specifications (and this is consistent with the model I received from the previous deal):
- 11.6" HD (1366x768) IPS 250 nits Glossy (10-point Multi-touch) display
- Intel® Celeron® N4000 (2C / 2T, 1.1 / 2.6GHz, 4MB)
- Integrated Intel UHD Graphics 600
- 4GB LPDDR3 RAM
- 64GB eMMC
- 720p webcam
- Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9560, 11ac, 2x2 + Bluetooth™ 4.2
- Up to 10 hours battery (3-cell (42Wh), integrated)
According to Google, the Lenovo C340-11 will be supported until June 2026.
As mentioned before, this is not as good as the last deal, but it's still competitive (as at January 2020) with most other online stores I could find which sell it for about $395-$400 without any further promotions, and Lenovo is back up to RRP of $549.
UPDATE 10/01/19 8:30AM
Other retailers are offering similar promotions at $399 with a $100 gift card at the respective stores.

For those looking for the cheapest (but maybe not as great value IMO) Chromebook from Lenovo and are willing to forego the 2-in-1/touch screen of the C340, the Lenovo 100e Chromebook is also available at Big W for $329 with a $100 egift card ($4 more than during 2019 Boxing Day sales).
