Amazon Prime Day sees the company heavily discount items across the amazon.com.au store front, offering discounts on books, electronics, DVDs, video games, smart home, cookware and kitchen appliances, toys, fashion, and everyday essential items. Amazon will also be offering discounts on Amazon devices which includes their Alexa-enabled line of Echo products and more.

To encourage new Prime members to use the Amazon Prime Video, Twitch Prime and Audible services included with their Amazon Prime service.

Prime members will also get a AU$10 Amazon.com.au credit when they stream Prime Video for the first time between 9-15 July; two months free access to Kindle Unlimited offering access to over 1 million titles for new customers who join Kindle Unlimited before 31 July; three months free access to Audible for new customers who join Audible between 9-31 July; free gameplay as Twitch Prime gives away a free PC game every day until July 18, including titles like Pillars of Eternity and Brutal Legend, and exclusive in-game loot for Warframe and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds; and more.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

So if we sign up now we get a 30 day free trial and can benefit from the 36 hour savings. Then we can cancel the trial and not pay the Prime fees?
