Amazon Prime Day has swiftly overtaken Black Friday as the world's premiere shopping event. On July 15, the sale will kick off in Australia with thousands of products discounted across all categories. Here are the details!
For those who missed all the hoopla last year, Amazon Prime Day is Amazon's global sales event that's like a Boxing Day sale on steroids. The concept is similar to Click Frenzy, except all of the deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members - which means you need to be a subscriber to get the deals.
It currently costs $6.99 to join Amazon Prime in Australia which is well below the asking price in most other markets. There's also a free 30-day trial available which you can cancel at any time.
Here's the official announcement from Amazon:
This July, Amazon will provide Prime members in Australia the chance to access epic deals in the world’s longest Prime Day event. Prime Day starts at 00:01 AEST on Monday, 15 July and – for the first time ever – runs for 48 hours across the world, with an extra 17 hours of deals straight from the U.S. available for Prime members in Australia direct from Amazon.com.au.
Prime members will also enjoy free expedited international shipping with no minimum order threshold for all Prime eligible products through the Global Store during Prime Day.
According to Amazon, last year's Prime Day was its biggest day of sales since launch. You can expect to score huge savings on TVs, smart home gear, kitchen products, pantry food and drinks, toys and fashion.
