Tips for shopping

To make the most of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping events, here are some useful tips for Australian customers shopping the sales:

The Amazon App
Download the Amazon app (Android / Apple) to keep an eye on deals. Customers can go to “Today’s Deals” and then “Upcoming” to see all the Black Friday deals before they go live. If a customer is interested in a deal, they can “Watch this Deal” to keep track of the deals they want to make the most of when the sale has officially started for that item. Enable push notifications on the Amazon App to never miss a deal during the sale.

The types of deals
With tens of thousands of items for sale throughout the Event it makes sense to understand some of the types of deals available.  

  • 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 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.
  • Deals of the Days are 24hr deals (or while stocks last) that feature deep discounts on popular products.  Customers can also access US Deals of the Days directly through our Global store offering on, with free shipping for Prime members.
  • Best Deals are deals collected from across – when the deal features a single discounted item, you can purchase it from the Deals page by clicking the “Add to cart” button. 

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.

Become a Prime Member – Prime members have access to free delivery in as fast as two days on Prime eligible orders, will be able to access some deals exclusively and can access Lightning deals 30 minutes ahead of time.  Australians can join Prime for only $6.99 a month, or if eligible, start a 30-day free trial at

Upcoming Deals – Keep an eye out for upcoming Lightning Deals that will be live throughout the event. These will be visible on the event page with the scheduled live time, but only available for a limited time and whilst stocks last.
