Amazon started the sales event in 2015 as its answer to Singles' Day, a shopping holiday in China popularized by Chinese ecommerce company Alibaba.

The company said Amazon Prime members in 19 countries will get access to deals this year, including two new ones: Brazil and Turkey. You'll be able to purchase from a range of great local stores via Amazon's Shop Local hub.

In addition to brands like Samsung, Zenify and Bosch, Amazon Prime Day will also spotlight local Aussie small businesses doing it tough during coronavirus. Reports then surfaced of Amazon's decision to push Prime Day back due in part to the strain that the pandemic placed on its warehouses - customers started to rely heavily on online shopping for essential goods as quarantine orders forced many to stay away from brick-and-mortar stores.

Four months of ad-free Amazon Music Unlimited for just $0.99.

A three-month free trial of Audible, including a monthly audiobook of your choice, a bonus audiobook chosen by Audible's editors and unlimited access to hundreds of hours of audio.

Popular movies up for rent from the Prime Video Store starting at just $0.99 from 12am Wednesday 7th of October.

From October 13-14, Amazon Prime Day will prepare everyone for the holidays with a series of over 1 million deals. Aussies also get a second bite at the apple - you'll be able to nab deals straight from the USA until October 15 via the Amazon global store.
