Amazon may have been a fairly late entry into Australia’s online shopping scene, but the e-commerce giant has grown by leaps and bounds since it officially opened in December 2017. Not only did it host its first-ever Prime Day Down Under in 2018, the company also offered amazing deals during the Black Friday sale period.
Amazon also offers ongoing deals and discounts throughout the year, allowing shoppers to save big on items big and small. And for frequent buyers looking to save on shipping costs, Amazon Australia Prime Membership (opens in a new tab) the price is one of the cheapest in the world.
Amazon is also like a rabbit hole – the more time you spend on the site, the more items you’ll see you want to buy, especially when browsing the deals section.
However, there are usually a lot more discounted items on the site that don’t show up on category-based deals pages. To facilitate the search for buyers everything deals on the site, Amazon Australia has now officially launched the Factory Outlet (opens in a new tab).

What is the Outlet Store?
Amazon’s outlet store has been around for a while in other regions, especially in the United States, but even there many people don’t know about it.
It’s where Amazon offers bigger savings on thousands of items on the site every day. While deals are updated daily in the US, in Australia the selection is to be updated weekly – every Monday – giving shoppers a week to decide on a purchase.
The Outlet Store offers clearance products from big and small brands, often at really low prices. Currently, Amazon Australia has over 10,000 items across all categories available in the Outlet Store.
To give you an example, you can get the complete the 7th season of the Game of Thrones DVD (opens in a new tab) for only $14, or a WD Elements 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (opens in a new tab) for only $87.30.
If you are a hunting dog, the Factory Outlet (opens in a new tab) definitely worth a visit.
