Australia Day True Blue Sale™

Information verified correct on August 26th, 2016

Did you know that last year Australians spent $4.43 billion with non-Australian online retailers?

The online shopping world is constantly expanding and with so much choice in the market sometimes it’s hard for our local Australian retailers to keep up. In Australia, a huge 97 percent of all our businesses are small businesses*, but sadly, 60 percent of Australian small businesses close down within the first three years of starting up*.

  We've crunched the numbers and we found that if every Australian credit card holder made just one purchase from an Australian retailer on Australia Day, it would:

  • Inject more than $2 billion into our economy
  • Be enough to fund over 24,000 new jobs
  • Accumulate enough GST to pay for 1,802 new entry-level nurses and 1,891 new primary school teachers across Australia.

In honour of Australia Day, we’re asking you - the consumer - to make the decision to buy from an Australian retailer. Here at finder.com.au, we put out a call to action and a bunch of Australian retailers have come together to support this cause. For 48 hours only, some of the finest Aussie businesses will be offering amazing discounts and deals to all who support a local business this Australia Day.
