The sales event runs globally from 15 - 16 July but Australia gets a whopping 65 hours of shopping, with U.S. deals available until 5pm AEST on the 17th.

eBay has also taken the time to highlight some select deals that it's undercut Amazon on, and handily linked to the products on both sites for a bit of gloating. Prices subject to change without notice.
