Amazon Prime Day is a two- day retail holiday for Prime members. It's expected to happen in October . Amazon Prime Day always occurs in July. This year, however, the pandemic has altered Amazon 's plans. Earlier this summer, the retailer confirmed to TechCrunch that Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day 2020 will likely be pushed to October , but great deals are still expected. Currently, multiple reports (based on emails sent to third party Amazon sellers) are predicting Amazon Prime Day will begin Monday, October 5, 2020.

An internal Amazon email seen by The Verge confirms that its Prime Day shopping event will take place October 13th and 14th, and that the company will make an official announcement September 27th.

In a separate internal email, Amazon warehouse workers were told no new vacation requests would be accepted between October 13th and October 20th, which suggests that the company needs all hands on deck for Prime Day.

Amazon event 2020

  Amazon event 2020 The tech launch season is fully upon us, and we've already seen new devices from Samsung and Apple. But now it's time for Amazon. That means new Echo smart speakers and screen, Ring doorbells and cams, Eero routers and most certainly a few surprises. © Amazon Last year at the 2019 Amazon Devices event, a monstrous amount of devices were announced. Don't remember, we'll remind you: We got Echo 3rd Gen, Echo Dot with Clock, Echo Studio, Echo Flex, Echo Buds, Echo Frames, Echo Show, Ring's Indoor Cam and Stick Cam and the all new Eero mesh system. And for 2020 Amazon has plenty of new devices.

Prime Day 2020 itself is expected to last for 48 hours. The festivities will no doubt commence before then, though, and could last until the Nothing is off the cards when it comes to the Prime Day deals, with everything from Fire TV Sticks and Keurigs to MacBooks and even 8K TVs on sale for a fraction

Prime Day 2020 won't arrive until October , but that doesn't mean we can't start getting into the spirit now. Once expected to take place in July, Amazon Prime Day 2020 won’t arrive until October , according to recent reports (more on that in a moment).

An Amazon spokesperson said in an email to The Verge that the company has not announced any dates for Prime Day. “Stay tuned for more details on Prime Day,” the spokesperson said, adding that customers can ask Alexa devices to keep them updated about Prime Day.

The e-commerce giant is keeping a tight lid on any leaks about this year’s Prime Day, which was postponed from July due to the coronavirus pandemic. A promotional poster from personal care company Braun that surfaced last week showing its Prime Day Deals “in mid-October” disappeared from several sites following an inquiry from The Verge. At that point, Amazon would only confirm that Prime Day would be in Q4, which means sometime after October 1st.

Whatever the date, Amazon likely wants to keep Prime Day and Black Friday sales from overlapping. According to Tamebay, a publication for Amazon third-party sellers, Black Friday deals are expected to begin showing up on Amazon somewhere around October 26th and run for several weeks.

In the past, Prime Day has started on a Monday; last year’s homage to consumerism lasted for two days. Analysts estimated Prime Day 2019 brought in somewhere around $6 billion. Amazon warehouse workers staged a Prime Day strike last year to protest working conditions at the company.
