What is Amazon Prime Day?

Launched in 2015, Prime Day is Amazon’s big sales event. Originally created as a celebration of the online retailer’s 20th anniversary, Prime Day has become an annual tradition, with Amazon offering some massive bargains across a huge range of products and big name brands.

To get these deals, you’ll need an Amazon Prime membership. If you don’t already have one, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial. If you’re not keen on having another subscription and are smart about your timing, you can grab these Prime Day deals and cancel your Prime membership before you’re charged the monthly fee of $6.99.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Since its launch, Prime Day has traditionally been held in mid-July. Previously, the only outlier in Amazon Prime Day timing was in 2020, when the event was postponed to October 13 due to COVID-19.

Amazon Prime Day is coming a bit earlier in 2021, with the sale officially starting at 12am AEST, June 21. The event will then run for the following 48 hours, ending at 11:59am AEST, June 22.

However, due to Amazon’s many global stores, Australian shoppers will still be able to snag international deals up until 5pm AEST, June 23. That means you’ll have 65 hours to grab your fill of bargains.

If you’re worried about missing some of the biggest and craziest deals on the day, don’t stress. We’ll have done the hard work for you and rounded those bargains up into one, convenient place.
