Rumours have been pouring in over the course of the year around Amazon's Prime Day 2020 shopping event, the date it may land on, and whether or not it would even go ahead due to the global pandemic.
Recently, a leak pointed to an October 13 start date to the online shopping spree, and now that's been substantiated, with Amazon finally announcing that Prime Day 2020 will officially span October 13 - 14 in Australia.
As with last year, Australians will have access to a full 66 hours of deals, as the savings begin at 12am AEDT on Tuesday October 13 and won't end until 6pm AEDT on Thursday, October 15, with Aussies being given access to a selection of US-based deals that will technically push the shopping event well into a third day.
As with other regions, we'll still be seeing 48 hours of local deals (those end at 11:59pm on Wednesday, October 14) and any savings and discounts you score in the following 18 hours will be from products that ship from the US.
Amazon Music Unlimited
As a special offer for any Amazon Prime members (new or existing) that haven't yet tried out the Amazon Music Unlimited streaming platform with its 60 million songs, Amazon is offering four months of the premium tier for just AU$0.99, after which it returns to AU$11.99 monthly.
