Amazon launched its first Prime Day promotion in Australia on 16 July, with the e-commerce giant cutting prices by up to 70 per cent. Amazon applied its biggest discounts to its own products, including its Echo Plus and Echo Dot speakers. Brands that Amazon reduced prices on included Lorna Jane, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger and Sony, while Myer, Kmart and Woolworths are among the Australian retailers that it undercut. Amazon’s Australian Prime Day will run for 36 hours; its first Prime Day was launched in the US in 2015.
