While Amazon's second Prime Day sale, titled Prime Big Deal Days this time around, might be done and dusted in Australia for now, shoppers can expect to find deals rolling in from the global sites right up until 6pm AEDT on October 12.
That means there's still a few hours left to shop if you want to take advantage of savings before the Black Friday sales in November, and we've collected all the goodies still available below.
If you missed the Prime Big Deal Days sale, some of the highlights included discounts on Amazon products like Kindle e-readers, Fire TV Sticks and Echo smart speakers, plus a big ranges of laptops, phones, games, monitors, vacuums and more.
With Prime Big Deal Days now over, we'll likely have to wait until July 2024 for the next Prime Day sale, but Amazon always has bargains onsite, and also jumps in to Black Friday, so you'll still be able to nab a bargain before 2023 comes to an end.

Frequently asked questions
When is Prime Day 2023?
This year, Amazon Prime Day 2023 took place on July 11 and Wednesday, July 12, 2023. However, access to US and UK deals saw the sale period extended beyond that to 5PM (AEST) on July 14. Because of this, we expect Prime Day 2023 to extend well into July 13 in Australia this year.
What is Prime Big Deal Days and when is it?
Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days is the second Prime-exclusive sales event of the year, acting as a replacement for last year's similar Big Smile Sale. In Australia, Prime Big Deal Days will take place over a 48-hour period starting at 12am (AEST) on Tuesday, October 10 and ending at 11:59pm (AEST) on Wednesday, October 11.
Can I get a free Amazon Prime membership?
As the name implies, Prime Day deals are exclusive for Amazon Prime members only. That said, those who aren't already members can still take part in Prime Day sales by signing up to Amazon AU's free 30-day trial. Once you've made your purchases, you can simply cancel Amazon Prime or let it continue for just AU$6.99 a month or AU$59 a year.
Tips for finding the best Prime Day deals
Price check everything:
With that in mind, we're of the opinion that you should always shop smart — some sellers on Amazon may try to exaggerate their deals, which is why you should get into the habit of using a site called CamelCamelCamel to check your desired item's price history. Here's a detailed guide on using CamelCamelCamel to save money on Amazon.
Additionally, you can also install a Chrome extension called Camelizer which you can click on to bring up the price history of almost any Amazon product you happen to be viewing.
Watch out for shady reviews:
While Amazon has gotten good at picking out and removing bogus reviews from product listings, the vast number of items sold on the site makes it difficult to ensure that every review is legitimate.
Because of this, we recommend using Fakespot to analyse the quality and legitimacy of reviews on any Amazon product page, offering a letter-based grade to give you an idea of whether said products reviews are mostly real or mostly fake.
Additionally, the website ReviewMeta can be used to scope out suspicious terminology or repeated phrases that many fake reviews tend to use, offering either a passing of failing grade for you to consider.
Alexa and Prime Day deal alerts
Alexa shopping has been around for quite some time. During Prime Day, Alexa can even tell you of the day's best deals. However, a new feature lets Amazon's digital assistant notify Prime members of upcoming deals on products they wish to track. You'll need to have a newer generation Echo smart speaker or smart display to use this perk. Nevertheless, it could be a cool perk for existing Prime members during Prime Day. Here's how to have Alexa notify you of upcoming deals.
