Conclusion: Prime Big Deal Days vs. Black Friday

Black Friday might offer bigger discounts across various products, but it also comes with the risk of items running out of stock, due to higher demand.
For bargain hunters and avid online shoppers, the end of the year is shaping up to be a deal-centric time.
Whether you're a Prime member or considering joining the bandwagon, one thing's for sure: Amazon's Big Deal Days is one to watch.
Transact eCommerce Director, Alice Cléret comments, “Amazon is tactically rewarding their members, whilst also attracting new prime members. Although the cost of living has risen this year, Amazon Prime Day had a spike in 25% sales in Australia compared to 2022, and so doubling down and taking advantage of Australia as a ripe market of opportunity is a smart move by Amazon.”
