Amazon Australia is offering free delivery on movies, books and music until March 11. There's no minimum spend and no limit on how many items you can order. Prices start at under $2! Here are the details.
For the next few weeks, Amazon will be waiving expedited delivery fees on books, music and movies sold by Amazon AU. This means the products must be sold by Amazon directly, rather than a third-party reseller. Here are the T&Cs from Amazon:
This free expedited shipping offer ends at 11:59 PM (AEDT) on March 11 2018 and are subject to these terms and conditions (“Offer”). The Offer only applies to purchases of books, music and DVDs sold by Amazon AU on Amazon.com.au (“Qualifying Items”) and when expedited delivery is selected at checkout (excludes priority delivery option). Offers do not apply to purchases made from third-party sellers on Amazon.com.au. When a Qualifying Item is added to your shopping cart, any expedited delivery charges that would ordinarily be charged for those items (in accordance with Amazon AU's standard delivery rates and policies), will be deducted from the total purchase price at checkout.
In respect of any items that are not Qualifying Items you may be charged for delivery in accordance with Amazon AU's standard delivery rates and policies. Offer cannot be used on pre-existing orders. This Offer may be withdrawn or amended without notice. Offers are not redeemable for cash. Offers are non-transferable and may not be resold. Amazon.com.au’s Conditions of Use and Sale apply. The Offer does not apply to orders placed with 1-Click.
In other words, as long as you stick to 'Qualifying Items' sold by Amazon and select expedited delivery at checkout, you won't be charged any delivery fees! If you have some friend and family birthdays coming up, this is a nifty way to save time and money on their gift - just click and forget. You can check out the full range of available items here.

The online shoppers of Australia have perused Amazon's offerings. And they have found them wanting. With very few exceptions, the deals on TVs, laptops and other gadgets have been hugely underwhelming. The cake was a lie.
If you're looking to pick up some Blu-rays or video games for Christmas though, Amazon is well worth a look. In fact, it has some of the cheapest prices in Australia. Here are a few stocking-stuffers for your consideration.
