Listen up, all discount and sales fanatics. Amazon Prime Day 2022 officially kicks off this July! 

Local deals will run for 48 hours starting at 12 AM AEST on 12 July until 11:59 PM AEST on 13 July. UK and US deals will also be available through the Amazon Global Store until 5 PM AEST on 14 July.

That gives Australian Prime members a whopping 65 hours of epic savings and deals.

What’s in store during this massive shopping event, you ask? Here’s what we know so far.

Exciting Deals to Expect

Australian Prime members can look forward to thousands of products on discount from various brands, big and small.

Amazon will launch deals for all categories, including electronics, homewares, video games, pantry food and drink, toys, sports equipment, fashion, beauty and more.

Everyone will surely get huge savings no matter what item customers plan to buy.

And if you’re keeping an eye on big brands, check offers from Apple, Bosch, Bose, Garmin, Instant Pot, Lego, Lenovo, North Face, Nintendo, Samsung and more.

Small and medium local businesses like Melbourne’s Orbitkey, Brisbane’s Nakie, Victoria’s the Doggie Balm Co, and Queensland’s Little Archer & Co. will also be part of the event.

After all, last year’s Prime Day was big for small and medium business owners who participated.

And so, Amazon Australia is making sure they stay front and centre again this year through its Shop Local Businesses Store.

It’s the perfect opportunity for Aussies who love to shop local and save big.
