Amazon Prime Day 2020
Prime Day is an annual deal event exclusively for Prime members that started in 2015. It brings two days of special savings on many items. It is aimed at promoting Amazon’s own products and services and adding more Prime members. But there’s also tons of deals from third part sellers as well.
Prime Day is typically held in July. But this year, it was postponed as Amazon focused on delivering essential items that were hard to find in stores. It also had to implement protocols designed to keep its warehouse workers safe. Some shipments were delayed for months and Amazon even started restricting the items that sellers could send to Amazon warehouses.
Now that deliveries are back to normal and most stores are open and fully stocked, Amazon is ready to think about Prime Day. Amazon Prime Day 2020 dates for the United States have not been officially announced yet, but now we have unofficial confirmation that the event will take place in mid October.
The information comes from an internal Amazon email obtained by The Verge. It says that a two-day shopping event will take place on October 13 and 14. The official announcement is expected to be made on September 27.
Amazon has also told third-party sellers previously to use the week of October 5th as a “placeholder date” for Prime Day promotions and coupons. Additionally, in a separate email, Amazon warehouse workers were told that no new vacation requests would be accepted between October 13th and October 20th.
Looks like Amazon Prime Day is coming in a few weeks. If you have any big purchases planned, it could be a good idea to wait until then to see what deals you can get. With Prime Day and the holiday shopping season so close together, it should be a busy few months at Amazon. But you can start looking for holiday gifts early on.
