  • There's a day and a half to go…

  • Ragrets

    Bonut of 2020?

  • Nothing has enticed me yet

  • I bought a dictionary. No ragrets :-)

  • Bought a G903 wireless hero before I noticed a MX Master 3 on ebay for the same price posted today on page 6. There are worse problems.

  • Disappointed with the Amazon AU Prime Day deals.
    On cheaper items the discounts are equal to that of those of deals posted on ozbargain during normal days, and the more expensive products are still too much (barely a deal). Most of the things I looked at simply were everyday price.
    (Seems Prime Day is aimed at more mainstream consumers i.e. see "Sale" on shop window people.)

    I posted 2 deals which I thought were worthy of posting:
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/572567
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/572721

    $0 spent.

    Probably best possible deal for the average person was an Alexa product + Cashback + $10 Cashrewards bonus + First time Amazon account discount ($10-$15).

    Disclaimer: More Amazon UK / US via Amazon AU deals are still to come.

  • Agreed, disappointing so far.

    • I got a couple of items I was about to get anyway, but overall the sale was completely underwhelming. There was the odd good deal here and there, but nothing I needed right now or really wanted. Previous years have certainly been better. In all honesty I feel like eBay and some bricks and mortar stores have been done better deals of late …

  • Bought the Coke Zero. Nothing else appealed at all, a total let down!

    No rugrats here

  • +2 votes

    Only the 36 pack of coke which isn't even for me haha.
    A few good deals but nothing i am after or felt was cheap enough for impulse buy.
    No ragrets here.

  • By time I actually got time to look at it.. realised I haven’t missed much. Very much Bit a mixed bag this time round for my .02c. Am a lil spewing i missed those RedBull cans as that was value - But overall, unless tomorrow is much more exciting - no regrets here

  • Honestly the sales are pretty average Amazon is starting to become like Ebay with its sales…

  • Ebay Plus is the surprising winner here.
    Was holding out for some Ryzen discounts on Prime, but zilch.
    Saw the Big W Switch deal on ebay, so created a new account, signed up for free Ebay Plus, and bought myself a Switch and a new CPU.
    So I'm definitely in the 500+ category.

  • Prime day sucking so far imo

  • Bought the XiaoMi curved Monitor on ebay + a scale on Amazon Prime. I just want the Breville Smart Grinder goes on sale too then i'm done with Prime. Pretty disappointed with the sale so far.

  • New Kindle $99 - first purchase on app $10 discount = $89 final price. Happy with that.

  • Ironically, the most I spent this week wasn't on Amazon.
    All their deals were kinda meh. I did buy some of the things that I needed to replace, like USB 3.0 Hub and eneloop.
    Actually, I feel OK, since Prime and free international shipping did save me fair bit of money.

  • I might be getting old but I was pretty happy with the savings on Omo (normally I get the 5kg for $25 delivered, they were on special for $21.99! woo)

  • +3 votes

    Does this include the $100 gift card?

  • I just wanted a decent sized inverter microwave on sale but it seems like that's too much to ask ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Some of their Amazon flash deals are ok depending on what you are looking for.
    But I find that there is a bloat of cheap China electronics (eg. USB cables, chargers, mobile phone covers/holders, lighting standing, etc) and for other categories they could do more.

    Surprisingly, eBay have done a better job at big purchase items but you have to combine this with cashrewards/shopback offers to make it a truely awesome deal.
    With my Hayfever playing up I am so glad that I was able to get this on discount Xiaomi Air Purifier 3H from the official AU distributor at a 53% discount rate once you factor in all the discounts vs RRP

  • About $600

    Bought:

    Viva Paper Towels
    CK Pants

    For kids -
    Switch + Minecraft $409
    Below at $49 each
    Animal Crossing
    Super Smash Bros
    Mario Kart 8

    Need to stop spending now

    • You got a solid list there, well done!

      • Well, first time getting a game system for kids (ages 6 and 8). These games seemed like good starters from what I hear and the comments stated the prices were good.
        Was thinking of getting just dance too, but think 4 games is enough to start with.
        Fingers crossed

        • TBH even just super smash bros and mario kart 8 is enough, wasted countless hours between those games + breath of the wild

  • Only bought the Logitech g903 w/ Hero Sensor… haven't seen anything else worth buying.

  • 24 Hue play bars,
    5 LIFX light strips + 5 extensions
    2 Echo dots
    All for around $1500 - less than half price.

    • 24 Hue play bars
      5 LIFX light strips + 5 extensions

      jeez its a party at your place

    • wow
      you must feel terrible you didn't get the nanoleaf panels 😁

      I bought $700 worth of similar items haha.
      I got suckered into this much spending since the prices here were once/twice a year.

    • 24 Hue play bars? What will you do with 24 of those (besides resell them)?!

      I mean, I get it. I'd recently purchased and installed 20 Hue colour Gu10s, myself. My house and patio area are one big party zone.

      Well, 3 separate party zones, according to the Hue app…

  • Um, the only bigger days I’ve had shopping were buying a house or car. I had a list of things I’ve been planning for a while, some were cheapest ever, some were >50% off and some were just marginally cheaper than they’ve ever been but I needed. And handful of needs less but ‘fun’ entertainment purchases as well though they were the minority. Also a few things I missed out on or couldn’t get the quantity I needed (didn’t want to order via another family member to bypass the limit as it feels wrong to do that). Between Dell and eBay and Amazon…. What’s worse is I still have a few things on my list and a home renovation that I need to finish :o .

    I blame COVID, I’m usually a tightarse with money.

    There’s a few things I bought that I am planning on using and was always going to buy eventually, but if I change my mind I could nearly double my money reselling, but that’s the minority.

  • Was reasonably happy with this year's Prime Day(s). Got a few things I've been waiting for including a lightning deal on the gopro. Annoying though that you have to be very lucky to score these bargains.

    GoPro Hero 7 $472.73 -> $349

    I'm a bad man.

  • Legit nothing I want that I've being eyeing off :/

  • No Ragrets, but I do have a couple of ragrats

  • $295 from Amazon, mainly household stuff; Huggies nappies, Water Wipes, Viva paper towels, Kirk's soft drink cans etc

    I did splash out a little for myself and nabbed the Switch from eBay flash sale for $375

  • Not much interest.

    LED wall lights
    Motorcycle cover
    phone armband
    phone car mount

    that's it

  • Not on sale on Prime, but my wife did complain about my unruly hair (in locked down Melbourne) so I bought some clippers at $17. Last night she looked at a couple of videos on how to cut hair, and then cut mine. Came out alright for a first effort and about $3 less than I spend on a haircut.
    Then we turned on the news to see that hairdressers are likely to be open next week.
    Bugger

    • It's pretty up in the air about what will and won't be open. I've got some clippers standing by but am holding off for the moment…

  • Prime Day felt a little underwhelming. On the plus side, didn't spend too much.

    Probably the most useful thing out of it was the return of no minimum for free international shipping (which still seems to be active btw)
    Got a few smaller items that were cheaper OS.

  • Prime day sale ended up being a waste of time for me, pretty much a lot of junk was posted on here as "deals" there was the occasional actual deal / bargain but nothing outstanding rather like a sale price that we have seen before on other places. Nothing like the prime day sale the first year they had it,

    • pretty much a lot of junk was posted on here as "deals" there was the occasional actual deal / bargain but nothing outstanding rather like a sale price that we have seen before

      I agree.
      If you took a few seconds to search the product deal history on Ozbargain of the posted “Prime Day deals”, most of the Prime Day deals were either equal or actually higher in price than previous deals.

  • All I wanted was even a slight discount on some music gear: Nothing at all.

  •  

    Got
    unstable unicorn
    codenames
    ring video cam (which I missed and came back in stock)
    echo show 8

  • A pair of cross trainers, Just Dance 2020, Dragonball Z Kai. Not so bad. Biggest purchase was getting the Sony WXM3s for $200 from Ebay though (refurbs)

  • I saved 100% off the nothing I bought!
