Questions regarding Amazon Prime with specific interest in Australia
Fairly self explanatory topic.
Amazon Prime Day starts in Australia tomorrow. I've never bought a thing from Amazon in my life but, as I'm now stuck for at least the next month or two in a rural hospital, hours away from home and nearly as witless as I am brickless (ie - totally) Imgoing to need to do some internet wrangling before the few marbles that are left roll away! I can't help but think that the familiarity of the system might get some bashed about neurone repairing and firing and, as I'm a 44 year old where the next youngest patient is in their mid sixties I'm also intruiged to see what those with even less faculties than mine may be able to do with some bricks and instructions.
Any Aussie users with experience in this whole Amazon lark? Is it worth signing up? Are there any genuine deals or steals to be had?
As it's becoming more obvious that there is a bit of an ABI to deal with here (my posts are taken taken me quite a while to write) - is the whole Amazon site and process users friendly (and above all, worth it?) - As a guide, I'm stumbling around eBay with some degree of ability (despite that I'm yet to trust myself to "pull the trigger')
Obviously, Australian info is what I'm seeking but would also love any anecdotal international info that people abroad care to share or recommend.
Thanks in advance

Every day I'm amazed at the little things I took for granted...
thanjs for the input
Interestingly, the Australian media was widely reporting that Prime Day was a failure before it had even ended with users reporting a lack of bargains and selections across the board and the fact that Prime membership (despite being available for free trail) was stopping users from engaging.
When I found that affiliate link on the Brickset main page I was TOTALLY over the moon - it was going to be my first opportunity to help support my favourite site.
If there were 50 off and bett I was prepared to be spending hundreds. There wasn't, I didn't...
Summary: Prime Day was like a few dates I went on back inthe day - My expectations were considerably greater than the overall result...
Ive just giggled to myself reading that back - imagine if you told someone 10-15 years ago that you had that big a set budget - you'd be buying multiples of everything released for the year!
I bought one set, spent $75 and got 54% off - I wouldn't have spent 2.5 - 5K to justify that kind of discount, and I doubt anyone would.
Apologies if you thought I was taking a shot there - you seem a bit agitated about it (though my own present state on mind is, I openly admit, questionable at present - brain injuries are a bitch)
