As of 12 pm today (AEST), Amazon Prime Day Australia has officially kicked off with a 36-hour window to grab the best deals available. As this is the very first Prime Day in Australia, we thought we’d help out by explaining how it all works to ensure you are ready and able to get the best available deals during this day (and a half).
First and most important of all, you have to be an Amazon Prime member to take part in Prime Day. If you’re not a member yet, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial here, or simply join at their introductory price of just $4.99 a month.
Ok so now that you’re a Prime Member, here’s the type of deals to look out for and what they mean:
Today’s Deals/Upcoming Deals: To see all deals before they go live, simply go to the “Today’s Deals” then “Upcoming”. If there is any product that you are interested in, you can select “Watch this Deal” to keep track of deals and to be informed when a specific deal has started.
Lightning deals: As the name suggests, these are deals that are available for a limited time only or until stocks last so members have to be quick to snatch them up. Lightning deals across all categories can be found on amazon.com.au/primeday, and all customers are only allowed to purchase one of each of the lightning deals.
Spotlight deals: These are deals that will appear live throughout the 36 hours (or until stocks last) and will include deep discounts on popular products.
Waitlist: If you’ve missed out on a Lightning Deal, you will have the option to join the waitlist by clicking the “Join waitlist” button on the product page. This will notify you if new stock is released.
The best advice we have is to check the site regularly and download the Amazon App to keep an eye on deals even when you’re on the go.
Amazon Australia has promised great deals including the lowest prices so far this year on FireTV, Echo and Kindle devices, awesome deals on video game consoles and popular games such as Call of Duty WWII, Far Cry 5 and God of War, up to 60% off in-demand fashion brands such as Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Fossil, and Lorna Jane, massive audio discounts including Sony, Bose, Sonos and more!
Below are some of the best deals so far:
P.S. We’ll keep adding the best deals so make sure you check back in.
Happy first Prime Day, Australia. May the odds be ever in your favour.
