What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an annual two-day sale event that includes some of the hottest online deals on the planet, as well as as live entertainment.

Think of it like a supersized Black Friday, but with a membership requirement.

Amazon Prime deals are exclusive to Prime members, so the first step in getting involved in this global sale mania is to subscribe on the Australian platform.

Amazon Prime membership is free for 30 days, and $6.99 per month thereafter - and it's a red-hot offer for a membership package that includes not only free shipping on millions of Prime-eligible products, but gives you access to Prime Music, Prime Reading, Prime Video (Amazon's own streaming service), as well as Twitch Prime benefits for gamers.


When is Amazon Prime Day Australia?

Prime Day runs across Monday July 15th and 16th this year. Sales kick off at 00.01 AEST.

But it gets even better for us Aussies.

Amazon has announced that, fot the first time ever, Australians will score an additional 17 hours of US deals via the Amazon Global Store in Australia. That means we get a total of 65 hours to shop ourselves silly.

Amazon Prime Day Shopping Tips

Given that Amazon has only been available in Australia for 18 months, Amazon Prime Day is still a relatively new concept to many local online shoppers, with some people unsure what to expect.

To get a clear idea of then magnitude and popularity of this particular sale event, you need only look previous events: at Prime Day 2018, over 100 million products were purchased, and it has been estimates that over US$4 billion was spent across the 36-hour event.

No doubt about it: Prime Day is BIG, so it's important to be organised in order to get your hands on those big sellers that everyone wants.

Here are our tips for shopping Prime Day like a pro:

1. Join Amazon Prime before Prime Day!

This goes without saying. With some lightning deals being snapped up in minutes, you don't have time to waste registering on the day. Join Prime ahead of time so that you are ready to shop on July 15th.

2. Update your Amazon account with your current address

Have you moved recently, or are you on holidays? Make sure you tidy up your account details before the sale starts so that your orders are going exactly where you need them to.

3. Familiarise yourself with Amazon Australia

As above, many people are still getting a feel for this platform in Australia, so pop over and get familiar with the interface and terminology Amazon uses.

Set your alarm, add it to your calendars, and write it on the fridge: Prime Day is July 15th & 16th 2019

And it kicks off at midnight, so prepare yourself for a late one!

4. Make your Prime Day wish list ahead of time
