Amazon Prime Day 2020 FAQs

Shopping during Prime Day 2020 can be a little overwhelming. To help, we’re answering all the most common questions our readers have regarding the sales event, including dates, competing sales, how to prepare, and more.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Introduced in 2015 in part to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary, the first Amazon Prime Day was a one-day-only retail holiday for Prime members that sought to overtake Black Friday as the sales event of the year. 

During the event, prices drop to all-time lows, often beating out prices we see over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The sale covers every product category Amazon offers: tech, beauty, home and kitchen, fashion, and smart home are just a few of the huge variety of items that will be discounted. 

Last year’s Amazon Prime Day was a huge success; during the 48-hour sale event held on July 15-16, Prime members bought more than 175 million items. It was the biggest shopping day in company history until it was surpassed by Cyber Monday shortly after, a familiar pattern of record-breaking. 

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Amazon Prime Day began at 12 a.m. PT on Tuesday, October 13, and runs through Wednesday, October 14, as it was originally postponed due to COVID-19.

Prime Day is an annual 48-hour sale where Amazon Prime members can get deals on products such as laptops, TVs, smartphones, wearables, and more.

Prime members in the following countries can participate in the event: the US, UK, UAE, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, and — for the first time this year — Turkey and Brazil.

Was Amazon Prime Day postponed this year?

Prime Day in past years has always taken place during the summer, specifically in July. Due to recent supply-chain delays and increased demand related to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Amazon has pushed Prime Day 2020 to October 13-14.

Who can access Prime Day deals?

Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of this event. Signing up is easy though, and a membership comes with many more benefits than just Prime Day deals access and free two-day shipping. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits before committing.

We’re currently in the sweet spot wherein you can sign up for the month-long free trial, shop Prime Day, and avoid paying for the subscription cost. Of course, you can also just pay for a $13 month-long subscription to shop Prime Day, if you’ve already had a Prime subscription.

How will this Prime Day be different from years past?

With Prime Day happening so close to Black Friday this year, competing sales and the number of overall deals will most likely be fewer in number.

Rival retailers may do as little as match Amazon’s discounts on Amazon products, like Kindles and Echo speakers, and a few high-demand products, like Sony headphones or gaming consoles. 

The larger ripple we expect to see this Amazon Prime Day is less available stock and potentially delayed shipping. Shipping speeds often take a hit during these high-traffic events, and we expect it to be worse than in years past.

With supply chains still not back up to snuff since prior to the pandemic, high-demand items like webcams, home office furniture, brand-name hand sanitizers, workout equipment, sewing machines, and the like will probably run out quickly, if they’re in stock at all.

How do I prepare for Amazon Prime Day?

During Amazon Prime Day, there are a few steps you can take to get the most out of the big shopping event. 

  1. Make sure you’re an Amazon Prime member.
  2. Download the Amazon app.
  3. Make sure your payment methods are up-to-date.
  4. Create a shopping plan and narrow down what you want to buy. 

For more detailed information on how to shop Amazon Prime Day 2020, read this.

If one of the products on your wish list didn’t receive a discount during Prime Day — don’t immediately surrender to the retail price. In a little more than a month after Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday may offer the discount you were hoping for.

Which is better for deals: Prime Day or Black Friday?

2020 has been an unprecedented year for deals events, so making solid predictions based on past years is somewhat difficult.

We could speculate for days whether or not retailers will be able to offer equally jaw-dropping prices as past years, but with the delays in supply chains and shipping, and demand increases, prices this year between either Prime Day or Black Friday may not be as great as in past years (if there’s even enough stock).
