9 emotions you feel as you wait for Amazon Australia

Stephanie Panecasio 23 November 2017 NEWS


Emotions are running high as we wait for Amazon Australia to go live.

Well friends, today has been a day of soaring highs and confusing lows as we figure out whether or not Amazon Australia really is initiating its soft launch. At first there were reports of a 2pm launch time - but then of course there was debate over whether or not it was really 3pm thanks to the difference between AEST and ADST.

No matter what you think, these are the emotions you've probably felt as you've been relentlessly refreshing your browser.

1. Adrenaline

You're counting down the minutes and it's almost time - Amazon Australia is seconds away from launching and you're bouncing in your seat like a crazy person, fingers hovering over the refresh button.


2. Curiosity

You've started planning your shopping lists already, wondering what will be on the page as it goes live. What brands will be there? Will you find all your favourite items?


3. Disappointment

It's 2.01pm ADST and you're feeling a little let down - where is Amazon Australia? Why are you still seeing Kindle products instead of everything else?


4. Smugness

Tell your friends - you TOTALLY knew about the time difference. Which crazy kids thought it was genuinely going to launch at 2pm ADST? Not you!


5. Impatience

Okay now it's starting to get a little frustrating. You've been waiting so long and now you have another hour to go? What's the go, Amazon? Why treat us like this?


6. Excitement

The countdown is on again! It was fun the first time around but this time it feels like the hype has almost doubled. Let's be honest, if you see the site click over things will get real.


7. Confusion

Wait, what? Why isn't it here? It has ticked over to 3pm ADST and yet... Nothing. A big fat load of nothing. You're not processing the information right... right?


8. Sadness

Well, it's not here. You've just gotta make your peace with that. It's been a hard afternoon full of disappointment and we know it's tough, but we're here for you.


9. Anticipation

But tomorrow... Tomorrow is another day. Maybe Amazon Australia will launch on Black Friday! The excitement and enthusiasm has skyrocketed back up!
