Bose EOFY sale (I cannot see an end date for this sale, so I assume 30 June 2021 or until sold out). This is a similar price to a David Jones deal posted in March 2021 by Wind (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611431). However, I bought from Amazon when they priced matched, but they cancelled the order a couple of days ago with a sincere note of apology for wasting my time. The Bose shop had this advertised for the last few days at $229.95 (maybe longer). Shipping is free on orders over $30. This is the special edition version and is available in silver and black at the time of posting. The difference between the Soundlink Mini II and the Soundlink Mini II SE is a better battery for the SE, it uses USB-C for charging, and the SE version is 2019 as opposed to 2015 for the Soundlink Mini II (https://versopo.com/en/bose-soundlink-mini-ii-vs-bose-soundl...). Version two is a significant upgrade from version one, which I have. While I am no audiophile, this is a great speaker, powerful enough for my ears, a great bass sound, a compact design, and an aluminium unibody construction. When the new speaker arrives the current one will head to my mother's house to continue its long fruitful service to the family. Of course, there are newer speaker models from a plethora of companies, but if the Soundlink Mini II SE performs anywhere near my old unit I will feel this is a steal at $149.95. I believe Cashrewards offer 2% at the Bose store.
