Amazon is a relatively new arrival in the Australian retail marketplace. And since its arrival it has been making waves… and saving families real money.

With Amazon Prime Day on now, here is a look at what Amazon Prime is and how it can put money back in your pocket.

What is Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime is a subscription membership that gives you:

  • fast and free shipping on items shipped by Amazon AU with no minimum spend
  • free shipping on items shipped from Amazon US (purchased through the amazon.com.au website) with a minimum spend of $49
  • Discounted priority delivering on items shipped by Amazon AU and Amazon US
  • Access to 2 million ad-free songs via Prime Music
  • Access to a rotating selection of thousands of ebooks via Prime Reading
  • Access to stream Amazon Originals via Prime Video

An Amazon Prime membership is $6.99/month (or save 30% with an annual membership for $59). If you are a regular online shopper, the savings on shipping you will receive as a member really do add up. The great thing about Amazon is the depth of the product range. You can buy anything from nappies to pet food, computers, power tools and everything in between.

Free 30 day trial

The good news is that if you are unsure about whether to try Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a 30 day free trial. With the free trial you can access all the Prime Day deals and determine whether it is right for you.

There are three types of deals…

Lightning Deals are promotions that appear for a limited time only and are while stocks last, so customers need to be quick to snap them up. Lightning Deals across all categories will be found on Amazon.com.au/primeday, and are available until either the promotion period for the deal expires or all the available promotional discounts are claimed. Customers will be limited to one purchase per Lightning Deal, to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy the great savings available.

Spotlight Deals feature deep discounts on popular products and appear live throughout Prime day or while stocks last.

Waitlist – If a lightning deal sells out there is the option to click the “Join Waitlist” button on the product page to receive a notification if more stock is released.

Enjoy the savings!
