Amazon Prime Day is here, time for some tech bargains

Once a year, Amazon has a big sale known as Amazon Prime Day. The deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members which costs A$6.99 per month, or A$60 per year.

While the title suggests a single day, this year, Prime Day actually runs for 65 hours the longest Prime Day ever, across today and tomorrow, or July 15th and 16th. This is the second Amazon Prime day for Australia.

So now its time to look at the deals. While they stretch across all product categories, we’re most interested in the technology section.

These are some of the best tech deals that are live right now:

  • Save 50% on Amazon Echo and Echo Dot.
  • Get a saving of $20 on the Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, available for $49.
  • Save up to $80 on Kindle Paperwhite.
  • Save $100 on select Home Security from Ring.
  • Great savings on speakers from Bose and Bang & Olufsen
  • 35% off on 31.5 ASTIVITA MONITOR.

Naturally, Amazon’s own products get their own category and from smart home speakers, kindles, and even Ring products, there are decent discounts to be had.

Go take a look at the following categories for more deals.

Last Prime Day, small and medium-sized businesses selling in Amazon’s stores surpassed US$1.5 billion in sales globally and offered hundreds of thousands of deals. This year, Prime members in Australia will be able to shop deals from local sellers including Melbourne based Canningvale, and Brisbane based, Astivita.

“Canningvale is excited to be participating in Prime Day again this year after seeing almost a 500% uplift in sales last year. Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping events in the northern hemisphere and in time, we expect it to be no different for Australia. This year we will once again be offering great prices on a range of luxury homewares available on Amazon Australia.”

Jordan Prainito, Managing Director of Canningvale

“Prime day last year showcased to us the potential of Amazon here in Australia. We believe that Prime day cements Amazon in the eyes of Australian consumers as the place to go to for low prices. In 2019 We will be slashing the prices of our best selling items lower than last year and putting on sale a whole new range of tapware, all available exclusively through Amazon.”
