What is Amazon Prime Day and how does it work?

Amazon Prime Day is a global shopping event exclusively for Prime members, offering a number of competitive sales and bargain prices from small businesses and top brands. Every year, the sales cover all kinds of categories on the global shopping platform.

The sale event will run from the 13-14 October. In 2019, Amazon Prime Day ran from 15–16 July. While we thought the same (or similar) would happen this year, COVID-19 had other plans, pushing the dates to a later time. Historically, Prime Day usually happened ahead of the major end-of-year sale events: Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the holiday season.

Amazon Prime is the backbone of Amazon's delivery services, allowing customers to get fast and free deliveries and free returns for the cost of one annual subscription.

The perks don't just stop there - you also get access to Amazon's streaming services. This includes:

      • Prime Video: A Netflix-style streaming service with over 2,000 titles.
      • Amazon Music: A Spotify competitor boasting 2 million songs.
      • Prime Reading: Free access to thousands of ebooks, short stories, comics and children's books via the Kindle Store.
      • Prime Gaming: Free access to a selection of PC games, with more added every month (plus free in-game loot for select titles).

How much does a Prime membership cost?

Amazon Prime costs $6.99 per month in Australia. There's also an annual subscription available that costs $59 per year (the first month is free).

This is significantly cheaper than in the US, where an Amazon Prime subscription costs US$12.99 per month or US$119 per year (around $18 and $170, respectively).

Still not convinced? Luckily for you, Amazon offers a free one-month trial of the subscription service. So, you can sign up here, enjoy Amazon Prime Day and let the amazing sales convince you of just how good it can be.

What is the Shop Local store on Amazon?

Amazon is adding an unexpected twist to Prime Day 2020. The online retailer has recognised small businesses, and has decided to put them front and centre on Prime Day.

Matt Furlong, the country manager for Amazon Australia, said:

"We're excited to offer Australian Prime members the chance to access fantastic savings across tens of thousands of products from international and Aussie brands across all categories for Prime Day this year. In addition, to help customers discover more local brands on Amazon.com.au, we are proud to put small Australian businesses front and centre through our 'Shop Local' store on Prime Day and beyond."

The 'Shop Local' store will features products from a number of Aussie small businesses and local brands like 123 Nourish Me from Perth and Sofi Spritz from regional New South Wales. If you want to know more, you can access the official Shop Local store here.


How big was Amazon Prime Day in 2019?

Prime Day 2019 was the largest shopping event in Amazon's history with more than 1 million deals exclusively for Prime members around the world. According to Amazon, Prime members purchased more than 175 million items throughout the event.

Because of our proximity to the International Date line, Australian Prime subscribers were the first in the world to access the Prime Day offers, including the ones available direct from the US through the global store. That early start, and the fact that Australians can also take advantage of US sales through the global store means that Aussie Prime members get to enjoy savings across a huge range of categories for a massive 65 hours.

In 2019, the top-selling Amazon devices in Australia were the Echo Dot, Kindle Paperwhite and Fire TV Stick Basic Edition. Around the globe though, one of the most popular products was the retro-gaming console the PlayStation Classic.

Australian Prime members also took advantage of the sale to stock up on all kinds of products – we're talking household essentials, heavy goods, smart home devices, games and books. Here's a list of just some of the bestselling products:

      • Finish Powerball Dishwasher tablets
      • Dettol Antibacterial Disinfectant wipes
      • One month supply of Huggies nappies
      • Multipack of Coca-Cola
      • Soniq 4K Ultra HD TV
      • Bose Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
      • Philips Hue Smart Bulbs
      • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
      • The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
      • Super Mario Odyssey
      • The Barefoot Investor 2019 Update

What sorts of Australian deals can we expect to see in 2020?

Judging by the list above and what sold so well last year, Amazon is likely to offer some amazing deals across all kinds of categories. We're talking electronics, whitegoods, tech devices and household essentials.

This will include some pretty hefty discounts on Amazon's own devices like the Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick. In fact, Amazon kicked off Prime Day early with its Echo devices, and you can see the best Prime Day Echo device deals in our roundup.

Keep in mind that Prime Day isn't just about Amazon devices - plenty of other brands participate in the massive sale event. We're predicting big savings on TVs, wireless headphones, smartwatches, fitness trackers, Instant Pot cookers, power tools, robot vacuums, smart lighting, and more.

If you've somehow missed the massive hype around the new PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, then we're pretty impressed. With both gaming consoles set for release later this year, we have a feeling the older generations – the PS4 and Xbox One – will be discounted pretty heavily. Expect some discounts on games as well, which could make perfect stocking stuffers for the kids this year.

Amazon is also notorious for some pretty epic fashion and beauty discounts – we're talking mascaras and foundations for under $5.

We recommend keeping your eyes peeled for deals across all major categories. We have a feeling there's going to be something for everyone!


The history of Prime Day

Prime Day was born in 2015, on the eve of the shopping platform's 20th birthday. The goal was to offer a huge volume of deals (more than Black Friday) but make them exclusive for Prime members.

The first event lasted 24 hours and included countries like the US, UK, Spain, Japan, Italy and more. It was so successful, that Amazon has claimed customers bought more items on that first Prime Day than on Black Friday 2014, which was the biggest Black Friday it had ever had at the time.

Since then, Prime Day hasn't showed signs of slowing down, out-doing itself as each year goes by. For Australians, Amazon's launch in Australia in late 2017 has meant that this year is only our third Prime Day, but we're confident it's going to be the biggest yet.

Prime Day 2019 ran for 48 hours for the first time ever and customers loved it. The number of sales over the two days surpassed the previous Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.


Amazon Prime Day vs Black Friday

There's no denying that Prime Day and Black Friday are two of the biggest global shopping events, but they do differ in some ways.

An obvious example is the fact that Prime Day is solely based on the Amazon platform. Black Friday is celebrated by all kinds of retailers, big and small, around the world. It also usually marks the beginning of Christmas gift shopping.

While you've got access to a plethora of stores on Black Friday, Prime Day usually features some pretty hefty discounts - bigger than what you'll see on Black Friday. So if there's something you've had your eye on for a while, and see it discounted for Prime Day, we recommend adding it to cart ASAP. You never know if there'll be enough stock come Black Friday.

In terms of sales, it's a little difficult to judge how successful Black Friday is because there's not one source of truth. However, Prime Day 2019 collected more sales than the previous Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

In a way, Prime Day is Amazon's own version of a Black Friday. While the retailer still celebrates and joins in on the Black Friday madness, having its own sale event provides it global recognition in the shopping space. It also gives it the chance to say "thank you" to its paying members and get rid of old stock.

Amazon Prime Day shopping tips

As with any huge shopping event, there are pros and cons to shopping on Amazon Prime Day. You can score some of the best deals all year by knowing what to look for and doing a little research beforehand. Here are our top tips for snagging the lowest prices on Prime Day:

      • Get deal alerts. If you've downloaded the Amazon App, you can choose to turn notifications on, meaning you'll get a buzz as soon as your favourite item goes on sale.
      • Know what a deal badge looks like. All Prime Day deals feature a blue badge, making them really easy to spot among the madness on Amazon.
      • Ask Alexa. Have you invested in your own Alexa or Echo device? Simply ask her about the Prime Day deals and you can hear all about them as you make your breakfast or clean up your home. Voice shopping is the new thing!
      • Create a wish list. With the plethora of products available on site, it's a good idea to create a list of all your must-have items. This will allow you to sort out exactly what you want, how much they cost, and how much of a discount they'll have. It also ensures you don't go a little crazy and buy unnecessary sale items on the day.
      • Know when to strike and when to pass. Lightning Deals that are released as often as every five minutes can turn online shopping into a frenzy. While you do need to snap up some items as fast as you can, don’t be pressured into clicking “Add to cart” on every single item that flashes across your screen. If you can, do a quick Internet search to make sure the Prime Day price is really as good as it seems.
      • Read the fine print. In the US, some Prime Day deals, particularly on big-ticket electronics like TVs and computers, have hidden the brand name and model number until just before the sale drops, so you should make sure you double-check these details before jumping on a low price.
      • Check reviews. When you feel rushed to snatch up a discount, you might not take the time to read through product reviews like you normally would. Don’t skip this step, unless you’re already familiar with the product and know for sure it’s what you want.
      • Compare prices. Other retailers are aware of the impact Amazon has had on the local marketplace, so don't be surprised to see even more competitive prices on offer from other stores over the Prime Day sale.
