Everything You Need To Know About Amazon Prime Day 2020
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is finally here, and ambitious online shoppers are already snatching up the best deals. While earlier this year we thought Prime Day was going to take place as planned in July, it was postponed until October 13-14. That means shoppers will have 48 hours this year to find the best deals.
For Amazon Prime Day 2020, the company has promised customers more than 1 million deals. Customers can save big on products from popular brands like Keurig, Under Armour, Ring, Coleman, Marvel and more.
In addition, Amazon is making a big commitment to support small businesses that are struggling in the ongoing financial crisis caused by COVID-19.
“This Prime Day, Amazon is increasing its commitment to small business selling partners by designing Prime Day to support them with its biggest small business promotion yet,” the company wrote in a recent press release. “Amazon is investing more than $100 million throughout the holiday season on new promotional activities to help small businesses around the world and enabling hundreds of thousands of smaller companies to sustain and even grow their sales despite the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.”
Amazon’s annual event has grown to become one of the biggest online shopping days of the year, right next to Black Friday, Cyber Monday and even Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. We don’t know exactly how much money Amazon made in 2019, but we do know the company saw billions of dollars in sales in just 48 hours. Amazon shoppers also spent $2 billion at independent small and medium-sized businesses who list products on Amazon, according to Jeff Bezos.
In a statement released last year, Amazon revealed the best-selling items during Prime Day 2019:
- Amazon customers bought more than 1 million toys
- 350,000 luxury beauty products
- 300,000 headphones
- 200,000 televisions
- 100,000 laptops
- The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter was the top-selling product overall, followed by the Instant Pot DUO
Details on the best Amazon Prime Day deals of 2020 remain scarce at the moment, though based on Amazon’s track record, we have some strong predictions on what to expect this year. From brands to watch to hot sellers and discounts, here is everything you need to know about the sixth annual Amazon Prime Day.
What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day originally started in July 2015 as a celebration of the company’s 20th-anniversary site launch. As part of Amazon Prime Day, the company announced a one-day sales event for Prime members that was to be “one of the biggest deals extravaganzas in the world,” according to then-Amazon Prime VP, Greg Greeley. Over the years the event has expanded from a 24-hour event to a 48-hour sale that takes place in countries all over the world.
When Is Amazon Prime Day 2020?
On September 28, Amazon confirmed the long-rumored date for Amazon Prime Day 2020. After several COVID-related delays, Amazon announced they would be hosting Amazon Prime Day on Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14. That means you’ll have a full 48 hours to shop.
Do I Need to Pay for an Amazon Prime Membership?
Technically, no. You can sign up for a 30-day free trial and still shop for Amazon Prime Day deals. Those who want to join can purchase an annual membership for $119 per year ($12.99 monthly), while students and anyone with a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) or Medicaid card can purchase a membership for nearly half the price. A membership grants you access to a plethora of Amazon services (e.g. Prime Video, Prime Music, Whole Foods) and other special promotions throughout the year.
Will COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Affect Amazon Prime Day?
COVID-19 has already affected this year’s Amazon Prime Day deals. The event itself was delayed from July to October. With numerous retailers being affected by the nationwide pandemic, a recent warehouse worker strike, and a global recession that experts are claiming “is not a one-quarter event,” there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding this year’s event. However, due to malls and many department stores still being closed online shopping is having quite the moment mid-pandemic. Now that Amazon has confirmed the date, we don’t expect any further postponements.
The Best Amazon Prime Deals to Expect in 2020
Amazon has announced 1 million Amazon Prime Day deals across all major shopping categories in 2020. This includes tech, style, home and kitchen appliances, fitness, security, beauty and grooming, and gear. Let us not forget Amazon’s own devices as well.
More than 175 million items were sold last year. Some of last year’s best-sellers across the globe include the Nintendo Switch (Mexico), Lifestraw Personal Water Filter (U.S.), Sony PlayStation Classic (UK), and 23AndMe Health + Ancestry Kits (Canada) to name a few.
If you don’t want to miss out on the best Amazon Prime deals this year, make sure to bookmark this page to be up to date on the latest deals. As soon as new deals go live, we will be regularly updating this page with deals based on category, price, and popularity.
