What is Afterpay Day?

Afterpay Day is one of the biggest online shopping events in the country, so it generates a lot of excitement when it rolls around – typically twice a year. The most recent one happened back in March and was absolutely stacked with sweet, sweet sales.

Afterpay Day will again be offering Aussies up to 70% off from top retailers both online and in-store across the country. Another bonus is that purchases made on the day are via Afterpay, which is essentially like a virtual lay-by, except you don’t have to wait until you’ve paid in full before you take your purchase home. Translation? You don’t need to pay the full amount up front if you don’t want to or can’t afford to. Huge win!
