This year, Prime Day in Australia will run from 21 to 23 June and offer massive savings to Prime members on tens of thousands of products – from big brands like Bosch, Calvin Klein, Fitbit, Lenovo, L’Oreal and Nintendo, to small local businesses like Sunshine Coast’s Little Archer & Co and Sydney’s BIGSOFTI.

That’s a marathon 65 hours of perks that should satisfy any bargain hunter. (And we’re not even counting the celeb-studded Prime Day Show kickoff party, starring Billie Eilish, H.E.R., and Kid Cudi that anyone can stream on Prime Video for 30 days from 17 June.)

But did you know that as a Prime member, you get fantastic benefits all year round?

Here are 6 more ways the fun keeps going with Prime. Anyone can join, so sign up now to participate in Prime Day 2021 and beyond!

#1 Exclusive and early access to deals

Reap savings throughout the year with a host of special promotions. Prime members score access to exclusive discounts on a changing selection of products monthly – not just from Amazon Australia, but global stores too. You also get early access to Amazon’s lightning deals, which means you can cherry-pick from certain products on sale before anyone else.

#2 Free and fast delivery

Spend your money on shopping, not shipping. As a Prime member, you get free expedited delivery on all Prime-eligible orders in as fast as 2 business days. The best part? There’s no minimum spend for local orders. International purchases totalling more than $49 of eligible items qualify for free delivery, too.

#3 Unlimited access to Prime Video

Translation: This is your licence to binge-watch a host of award-winning movies and TV shows on your TV, tablet, mobile or the web. Think classics like Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, 2 Broke Girls, and Doctor Who, as well as hit shows including The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Fleabag, Borat, The Boys and Star Trek: Picard.

#4 Ad-free music anywhere, anytime

As a Prime member, you get to plug in to 2 million songs and thousands of stations and playlists whenever you want. Listen ad-free on your devices, and hands-free on the Amazon Music app by asking Alexa. On top of that, you can download all your favourite tunes to hear them offline and on the go.

#5 Free access to over 1,000 books and more

The writer Sir Richard Steele once said: “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” With Prime Reading – free with a Prime membership – you can give your brain a full workout thanks to a library of over a thousand top e-books, short works, comics, and children’s books.

#6 Free games and in-game loot

Get your game on with fresh gaming perks every month. Prime members enjoy a monthly selection of free games, access to free in-game loot, a Prime Gaming channel subscription every 30 days, an expanded set of chat emotes and colours, and an exclusive chat badge, among other goodies.
