UPDATE: Prime Day might be over, but the savings just keep on coming when shopping on Amazon. And we've dug up some great bargains on premium Bluetooth speakers, the best DLSR there is and a darn good smartphone. Scroll down to find out more.
Amazon might be the world's largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings. Yet the Australian inventory is gradually increasing, meaning there's always a great bargain to be found.
And with the Prime service now available in Australia, shopping on Amazon can save you plenty.
Unfortunately, GST being applied to all purchased goods shipped to Australia means that we're no longer able to import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US version. In lieu of that, Amazon Australia has set up a ‘global store’ option which offers millions of products that were previously available on amazon.com.
Finding the cheapest prices on the tech currently sold on Amazon Australia, however, can be rather time consuming, so we've taken it upon ourselves to help you sift through the chaff and find the best bargains on the hottest products.
We'll keep this list of Amazon deals updated regularly, so be sure to check in often and make sure to score the cheapest price on a variety of tech.
Nikon D850 body | usually $5,299 now $4,688
If you’re after one of the best pro-level DSLRs, the Nikon D850 will not disappoint. It’s by far the best high-resolution shooter you can find, if you’ve got some spare change lying around. While it costs well over 5K on Nikon’s own store, you can save on Amazon, where the body alone is $4,688. That’s a saving of $611.View Deal
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 | usually $349.95 now $229.99
Harman has a reputation to maintain – producing premium audio gear with great sound. And the Onyx Studio 4 delivers room-filling sound with up to 8 hours of playtime. This Bluetooth speaker can also be used for voice calls, with a built-in mic, all for the sweet low price of $229.99.View Deal
Harman Kardon Onyx Mini | usually $229.95 now $120.99
It might be tiny, but the Onyx Mini is still a full-featured Bluetooth speaker with built-in mic and up to 10 hours of battery life. And it’s only $121 on Amazon, saving you a cool $108.View Deal
Samsung Galaxy S8 | usually $999 now $758
While the Galaxy S9 series has been kicking around for a while, the S8 is still a darn good Android handset. So if you want a great phone that’s now cheaper than ever, you can get the Galaxy S8 from Amazon for $758. That’s a saving of $240 on the actual RRP. Keep in mind, however, this is a direct import. So make sure you’re comfortable with the purchase before making the payment.View Deal
Fitbit Versa | usually $299.95 now $249
It might look like an Apple Watch, but it’s also a great alternative if you’re after a smartwatch. It’s Fitbit’s latest offering that carries a price of $299 on the manufacturer’s website, but get it for $50 less on Amazon, available in black and peach/rose gold.View Deal
