So, what else we need to know about Amazon Prime Big Deal Days?

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a special annual event organised by Amazon exclusively for its Prime members. 

It started in the US in 2015 to mark the company’s 20th anniversary, offering more deals than Black Friday initially. Over time, it became a mid-year sales event for Prime members with exclusive discounts. 

In 2018, Australia had its first Prime Day, which lasted 48 hours. Moreover, the upcoming the coming Amazon Prime Big Deal Days will span 65 hours of great deals. 

During Prime Day, Amazon offers a wide range of discounts and deals on a variety of products, including electronics, clothing, home goods, and more. It’s a great time for Prime members to save money on their online shopping. 

When was Amazon Prime Day 2023?

Amazon Prime Day 2023 in Australia began on July 11 at 00:01 AM AEST and featured local deals available until July 12 at 11:59 PM AEST. 

What’s unique for Australians is that they can continue to shop international offers from Japan, Germany, the UK, and the US until the sale ends on the US West Coast. This extended shopping opportunity gives Australians a total of 65 hours, which Prime Day 2023 in Australia concluded at 5 PM AEST on July 13.

When is Amazon Prime Big Deal Days sale in 2023?

There is another major Amazon event coming up in October this year, but it won’t be referred to as “Prime Day.” Instead, it’s been named “Amazon Prime Big Deal Days.”

It will start at 00:01 AM AEDT on Tuesday, October 10. Following this, local Australian deals conclude at 11:59 PM AEDT on Wednesday, October 11. However, similar to the extended Prime Day format, Prime Big Deal Days in Australia will continue. International offers from Amazon Japan, Germany, the UK, and the US will be available until 5 PM AEDT on Thursday, October 12.

Prime Day vs Black Friday – What are the differences?

Both Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday typically provide discounts on similar products, although there are distinctions between the two sales events.

Prime Day primarily features deals from Amazon itself. As a result, it tends to have lower shopper competition, making it easier to discover and compare prices, and with stock availability being more reliable.

Conversely, Black Friday spans a broader array of stores, potentially offering lower prices on various brands. But it demands more effort to uncover the top deals and keep an eye on limited-time flash sales.

If you need your tech sooner, waiting for a potentially better Black Friday discount might not be worth it. There’s no guarantee of significant price differences, especially for Amazon products. While older tech might be cheaper, competition increases during Black Friday, possibly making it harder to secure the best deals.

Considering the first time Prime Big Deal Days event, it’s unclear how its prices will compare to Black Friday. If you can wait another month, it might be worth waiting to see what November brings.
