Get ready because we now know the date for the annual Amazon Prime Day and it’s just a couple of short weeks away.
Prime Day 2021 kicks off on Monday, June 21st at 12am AEST and runs for 48 hours until 11:59pm AEST on Tuesday, June 22nd. The event was pushed back to October last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic so it’s coming much earlier this year, you lucky things.
Huge savings will be available for Aussies across the two days, including for huge brands such as Calvin Klein, Fitbit, Nintendo, L’Oreal, and Samsung.
Special deals from Amazon’s U.K. and U.S. versions will also be up for grabs for an extra day, meaning Aussie customers essentially have access to 65 hours of bargain hunting instead of 48 hours.
And we already know some of the exclusive deals on offer. Four months of Amazon Music Unlimited? Why not. Three months free of Kindle Unlimited? Yes please.
There will be cheaper rentals from their Prime Video service too, so get planning what movies you want to watch from the collection. And with Amazon just buying MGM for a casual $10.9 billion, their movie catalogue is set to get even bigger and better.
Amazon has been making steady inroads into the country recently so you won’t need to wait so impatiently for purchases in the future. As per Financial Review, the company opened a new fulfilment centre in Brisbane in the last year, with another two – one in Sydney West and another in Melbourne – are scheduled to open by the end of the calendar year, taking its total to six.
The deals, of course, are only available to Amazon Prime members, so if you don’t have one of your own, find a mate who does. In tempting shoppers to head online for some hasty purchasing, Amazon Prime Day is swiftly becoming Australia’s biggest limited-time shopping sale. A virtual Black Friday if you will.
