Amazon Prime Day 2021 is here. The massive online sale event started at 12am AEST, June 21, and will be running for the following 65 hours. During this period, the online retailer will be offering major deals across tech and gadgets, home entertainment and more.

If you’re looking to buy yourself a fancy new smartphone to replace the one you currently have with the giant crack in the screen, this is the time to act. However, if you’re a dyed in the wool Apple user, don’t expect to see any iPhone deals.

Smartphone prices on Amazon can be wildly variable, with some third party sellers frankly taking the mickey and charging way too much for ordinary handsets. That’s usually not an issue if you’re buying directly from Amazon, so be sure to check that the seller is Amazon AU.

  • Telstra: EOFY deals include $200 off an iPhone 12, $250 off the Google Pixel 4a and a bonus Galaxy Watch3 (RRP $799) with any Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra.
  • Optus: A selection of mid-range smartphones have been discounted, including 50% off the iPhone SE (64GB) and 54% off the Samsung Galaxy A52 (128GB).
