With the cost of living skyrocketing, every purchase warrants deliberation. But sometimes you just need a new headset, because your old one's on its last legs. Or maybe the buttons on your gaming mouse are starting to get noticeably sticky, or maybe 16GB RAM just isn't cutting it anymore. Thankfully, Amazon Prime Day 2024 is just around the corner, and it'll likely have big discounts on items like this and more.

We don't know exactly when Amazon Prime Day 2024 will happen in Australia, but July is normally a safe bet. As always, we'll be featuring each noteworthy deal in this here guide, so bookmark it now, and then come July, we'll be spending every hour of the day making sure it's populated with the best - and none of the unremarkable - deals.

While Prime Day generally rewards Amazon Prime subscribers, there's usually a lot of discounts available to non-subscribers too. Not only that, but other retailers may see fit to discount their own wares to keep up with the (usually unfair) competition. 

But it's easy enough to sample Amazon Prime without paying a cent. Wait until July to use the 30-day free trial to get the benefits, and then cancel before the trial ends.

What kind of deals can we expect? We've been covering Amazon Prime Day in Australia since its debut in 2015, so we can say with authority that anyone in the market for headsets, gaming mice, gaming keyboards and other peripherals will be well accommodated for. Gaming monitors and laptops are also a safe bet. On the other hand, components and hardware are usually a bit thinner on the ground, but they do exist, which is why it's probably wise to rely on us to find them.

Other retailers may take advantage of Amazon's own sale to get their own sales events kickstarted. These are some of the retailers we'll be keeping an eye on:

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Amazon Prime Day 2024 hasn't been officially announced yet, but when it is, we're predicting it'll take place in mid-July. That's the usual time frame for the event, with the exception of 2020 when Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works. 

Still, that's just a well-educated guess and Amazon could change its approach entirely.
