The Amazon Prime Day deals are already beginning to appear online. For the next day-and-a-half, Aussies will be able to snap up discounts and bargains on millions of products including video games, computers, phones, books, gadgets and more. Here are all the best deals so far - and how to get them!
Before we get stuck into the deals, here are some important things Australian shoppers need to know about Amazon Prime Day.
What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is an annual sales event exclusive to Amazon Prime members that officially kicks off today at 12pm AEST. To get the best deals, you need to be signed into your Amazon Prime account. If you're not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can currently get a free 30-day trial. Click here for your free Amazon Prime membership!
Amazon's annual shopping event, Prime Day, is coming to Australia on Monday 16 July at 12pm AEST. The 36-hour sale (it's longer than an actual day as it runs globally) is all about offering savings to Prime members until midnight on 17 July. Here's what you need to do to get in on the savings.
It's also a good idea to download the Amazon app which is available on Android and iOS. You can then get a sneak preview of upcoming Amazon Prime Day offers by clicking on 'Today’s Deals' and 'Upcoming'.
What kind of deals are there?
Much like other annual deals events such as Click Frenzy and Cyber Monday, Amazon Prime Day will be offering timed mega deals in addition to the regular stuff. These are called 'Lightning Deals' and will only be available for a limited time. There are also 'Spotlight Deals' on popular products which will be appearing at different points throughout the sale. The sale also has a 'Join Waitlist' option which alerts you if more stock becomes available on a sold out product.

Now, on to the deals! The sale doesn't start until noon, but here are the deals that have jumped the gun early. We'll be updating this page regularly, so keep checking back for fresh bargains!
Note: As mentioned above, some of these offers are timed 'Lightning' deals. We can't guarantee they will still be available when you click.
