If your piggy bank was hoping to shed some winter weight before the start of bikini season, then Amazon Australia is here to give it a workout. Amazon Prime Day, the online retailer’s biggest yearly sale this side of Black Friday, is promising a “two-day parade of epic deals” when it kicks off midway through next month.
This year’s Amazon Prime Day is set to start on July 15 at 12:01am AEST and run for 48 hours. After that, an additional 17 hours of deals from the US will still be available to Aussie shoppers, ending July 17 at 5:00pm AEST. This means that Australian shoppers will enjoy 65 hours of sales in total, making our Amazon Prime Day event the longest in the world.
It’s not as easy as logging on and frantically adding to cart, however. Amazon Prime Day deals will only be available to Amazon Prime members, so if you want in on the bargain bonanza you will need to set up a subscription in advance. You can sign up for a 30-day free trial today which will cover you for the upcoming Amazon Prime Day period, and beyond that you can either subscribe for AUD $6.99 a month or AUD $59 per year. Outside of getting access to Amazon Prime Day deals, Australian Amazon Prime subscribers also enjoy free two-day domestic delivery, free standard international delivery on eligible orders over AUD $49, as well as access to Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Reading. A Twitch Prime Membership is also included, which brings with it free monthly PC games and more.
Amazon Australia is promising sitewide deals from TVs to toys to everyday essentials over the course of this year’s Amazon Prime Day sale, and you can bet there will be plenty of gaming bargains to be found as well. In fact, if you can’t wait a few more weeks there are already some great deals to be had, such as this PlayStation 4 1TB Call of Duty Bundle for AUD $379, this Logitech G413 Gaming Keyboard for AUD $93.99, and this Aquaman blu-ray for AUD $15.98. (What do you mean Aquaman isn’t gaming related? Jason Momoa is all about playing games… with our hearts.)
