AMAZON AUSTRALIA ANNOUNCES PRIME DAY 2020
Amazon Australia has today announced its annual Prime Day event, giving Australian Prime members access to incredible savings during the world’s longest Prime Day. Prime Day will begin at 12AM AEDT on Tuesday, 13 October with local deals running for 48 hours until 11:59PM AEDT on Wednesday, 14 October, and deals from the U.S. available on Amazon.com.au through Amazon Global Store until 6pm AEDT on Thursday, 15 October, giving Aussie Prime members access to a massive 66 hours of deals. Prime Day offers members excellent savings on tens of thousands of products from both big brands and small local businesses, including Bosch, Huggies, Samsung, Gobe and Zenify.
Deals will launch across all categories including Amazon devices, consumer electronics, pantry food and drink, toys, fashion, beauty and more. Matt Furlong, Country Manager for Amazon Australia, said, “We’re excited to offer Australian Prime members the chance to access fantastic savings across tens of thousands of products from international and Aussie brands across all categories for Prime Day this year. In addition, to help customers discover more local brands on Amazon.com.au, we are proud to put small Australian businesses front and centre through our ‘Shop Local’ store on Prime Day and beyond.” The ‘Shop Local’ store features products from hundreds of Australian small businesses, and new curated collections to connect customers with local brands including 123 Nourish Me from Perth and Sofi Spritz from regional New South Wales. Customers can access the Shop Local store on www.Amazon.com.au/shoplocal
Tom Maclean, Founder of SOFI Spritz said, “2020 has been a difficult year and kicking off our partnership with Amazon.com.au has allowed us to reach new customers alongside existing ones. With Prime Day just around the corner and Amazon Australia’s focus this year on supporting small Aussie businesses through the Shop Local store, we’re really excited to see the results we can achieve.”
