Afterpay Day is officially here. Kicking off this morning at 8am, (*Thursday, March 17) and running until midnight on March 20, the mega online shopping event will last for four whole days, so you can shop a range of massive sales from your favourite both online and in-store. 

Afterpay Day is offering Aussies up to 70% off from top retailers like The Iconic, P.E. Nation, Dyson, Kmart, Adore Beauty and more, and gives shoppers the ability to pay better by managing their payments in four fortnightly instalments without incurring interest. 

This year, to support Aussies in flood-affected areas, Afterpay will be inviting customers to add a $2 donation to Thread Together to their order — an organisation delivering clothes to those in need. The $2 donation will be deducted from a shoppers’ first payment instalment. This comes alongside an initiative that’s seen the brand already donate $400,000 to Thread Together, in addition to 250 hours of staff volunteering.

Another first time initiative for the online shopping event will be the DROPSHOP by Afterpay experience. The Afterpay Dropshop is a one-stop-shop where customers can discover limited-edition drops, exclusive collaborations and the freshest releases. According to Afterpay, Culture Kings will be doing daily drops, while other retailers including Adidas, Waves AU and Harrolds will also be releasing items.

Aussies can get a sneak peek of the products from today on the Afterpay Dropshop, with Afterpay Pulse Rewards members (Afterpay’s loyalty program), securing early access from tomorrow, Wednesday, March 16.

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 August of 2021 and was absolutely stacked with sweet, sweet sales. Last year, it was offering Aussies up to 70% off from top retailers both online and in-store across the country, so here’s hoping it does the same again for 2022. 

When is Afterpay Day 2022?

Afterpay Day 2022 is currently slated to kick off at 8am on March 17, 2022, running until March 20, 2022. That’s four full days to bag as many discounts as possible across some of your favourite retailers.

How does Afterpay work?

Afterpay 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 total amount upfront if you don’t want to or can’t afford to at the moment. Huge win!

You simply pay one instalment on the actual day of purchase and then pay the same amount fortnightly over six weeks (four instalments total). You don’t pay any interest or fees as long as you pay on time. If you’re late on a payment, you’ll incur a $10 fee. However, that fee is capped and doesn’t compound. Afterpay also pauses your account until the balance is paid and you’re back on track. 

Who has the service?

At this point, around 63,000 small and large businesses offer Afterpay as a payment option, so it’s safe to say that most of your favourite major retailers are on board. However, if you’re not sure, you can always check out either the retailer’s payment options via their website or the list of businesses on its store directory.
