The number of deals available during Amazon Prime Day is frankly a little ridiculous, and we expect no less for Amazon Prime Day 2021. The massive online shopping event will be starting at 12am on Monday, June 21 AEST. Local deals will run for 48 hours and expire at 11:59pm on Tuesday, June 22 AEST, while international deals will be available through the Amazon Global Store until 5pm on Wednesday, June 23 AEST. This will be the longest-running Prime Day sale ever, giving Aussie Prime Members access to an incredible lineup of deals for 65 hours.

We’re talking tens of thousands of discounted products spread across 25+ categories. It’s highly likely that Amazon’s own range of products like smart home devices and kindles will be among the action. Sifting through everything would literally take you hours (at which point a lot of the better bargains will be sold out.) Fortunately, it’s possible to find the best deals in seconds by following this trick.

Here are the steps to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2021 bargains as quickly as possible, because preparation is key. Seriously, bookmark this page for later.

Step #1 Join Amazon Prime prior to Amazon Prime Day 2021

As you’ve probably heard by now, Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive sale for Prime members. This is Amazon’s premium monthly subscription service which boasts free shipping on any items purchased through Amazon and free access to Prime Video, Prime Music and Prime Reading. A subscription normally costs $6.99 per month. If you’re only interested in the Prime Day deals you can sign up for a free trial – just remember to cancel after the sale.

Step #2 Select ‘Shop All Deals’

Amazon Prime Day is divided into 25 categories. You can see all of the products simultaneously by clicking on the ‘Shop All Deals’ option, including timed Lightning deals. (This may seem counterproductive to narrowing things down, but hear us out.)

Step #3 Refine your search

On the left-hand side of the Amazon Prime Day 2021 page you will find a list of the available categories under ‘Department’. Simply check the boxes you’re interested in to refine your search.

Step #4 Sort by Discount

In the right-hand side of the deals page, you should see a drop-down menu labelled ‘Sort By’. Select “Discount – High To Low”. This will automatically reorder the deals from the biggest discount to the lowest, essentially showing you the best bargains available at that very moment.

Step #5 Empty your goddamn wallet! Amazon Prime Day 2021 only rolls around once

That’s it! You should now have a bespoke list of the categories you’re interested in, with the best deals at the very top. (If you want to narrow things down even further, you can also search for specific discount percentages – with the maximum being 70% off. You’ll find the option under ‘Discount’ at the lower left hand side.)
