Amazon's Big Smile Sale is the online retail giant's next best exclusive event in Australia after Prime Day, and the latest one is happening right now until 11:59pm AEDT on April 2!

For those who are unfamiliar with it, the Amazon Big Smile Sale (opens in new tab) is a recurring multi-day shopping event in Australia that's known for offering big savings on a huge number of items. Last year, the Big Smile Sale was what Aussies got instead of the US and UK's Prime Early Access Sale. 

Amazon Australia's first-ever Big Smile Sale took place between April 10 and April 14, 2022. It was followed by another Big Smile Sale which kicked off on October 10 and ended on October 16, 2022.

Unlike its US and UK equivalent, Amazon's Big Smile Sale events don't require you to be a Prime member (opens in new tab) to bag a bargain — the Big Smile Sale's discounts are usually available to everyone. 

Of course, there are often additional Prime member exclusive discounts on offer, but these are usually comprised of international deals from the aforementioned Prime Early Access Sale.

What is the Amazon Big Smile Sale?

Amazon's Big Smile Sale is fairly new to the scene, having only launched earlier this year in April. That first event only lasted four days though — that means Amazon is kicking things up a notch for this month's iteration, extending the sale to seven days.

The event will coincide with Amazon's two-day Prime Early Access Sale in the US and UK, which early reports referred to as a 'second' Prime Day. While that event isn't officially happening in Australia, some Prime-exclusive deals will be available to Aussies via Amazon's global store (opens in new tab).

While we predict that both events will be slightly smaller in scale than Amazon's actual Prime Day celebrations, we're still expecting some excellent deals during its Big Smile Sale. If anything, it will surely whet our appetites for November's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

When is the Amazon Big Smile Sale?

The most recent Big Smile Sale happened in Australia at 12pm AEDT on Monday, October 10 before finishing up at 6pm AEDT on Sunday, October 16. Of course, there was also a Big Smile Sale that took place earlier in the year from April 10 to April 14. 

The latest Big Smile Sale is happening from Monday, March 27 to until 11:59pm AEDT on Sunday, April 2.

You don't have to be an Amazon Prime member (opens in new tab) to score a great deal, either. That said, Prime subscribers will still have access to some deals from the US and UK's Prime Early Access Sale via Amazon’s global store (opens in new tab).
