Here at Lifehacker, we track technology deals through our Dealhacker posts and provide exhaustive coverage of mobile phone plans and Internet service providers through our regular Planhacker columns, while Elly’s daily App Deals roundup lets you know the best discounted and free apps. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to finding discounts that work for Australian shoppers. (Note that we haven’t included group deal sites or cashback sites in this roundup; those are separate categories we’ll revisit another time.)

Honourable mention this week to RetailMeNot, which is US-centric but has handy listings for discount coupons in some categories (anyone for pizza?)
Got another favourite deal site that we’ve missed? Tell us in the comments. (Again, we’re not looking at group deal or cashback sites this time around.)
