The best Amazon deals and sales in Australia for October 2019

UPDATE (Oct 4, 2019): Black Friday 2019 may seem like it's still a while away, but Amazon Australia is already teasing us by offering free expedited delivery on international purchases. This offer is for a limited time only, although Amazon hasn't detailed when this promotion will end. So any Prime-eligible item you buy from the Global Store section of the site, and is sold and shipped by Amazon US, no matter the cost, will arrive a coupe of days quicker with no shipping costs. 

So if you haven't signed up to become a Prime member yet, do so now and you'll get a 30-day long free trial period and save on shipping costs for items purchased from Amazon US.

Amazon might be the world's largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings compared to other regions. Yet the Australian inventory is catching up, 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. There's a whole load of perks that come with being a Prime member, including early access to a lot of Lightning Deals as well as the ability to participate in Amazon's annual members-only Prime Day sales.

Unfortunately, GST being applied to all purchased goods shipped to Australia meant that, for a while, we couldn't import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US storefront. However, the retail giant has backflipped on that decision after customers pressured Amazon to reverse the ban. The 'global store' still exists on Amazon Australia, though, and there are usually plenty of bargains from the US to be had on the global section of Australia's own Amazon storefront. 

The advantage here is that import duty is added to the cost of the item and Amazon handles the customs clearance for you.

If you do decide to shop for tech on from the global store, keep in mind you may not be covered under Australian warranties and you may – under some circumstances – need to pay shipping costs as well. 

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.
