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! That means you better hurry if you want to nab a bargain before the same is over!

For those who are unfamiliar with it, the Amazon Big Smile Sale 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 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.
