Amazon is bracing itself for one of the most significant retail events of the year as Prime Day 2020 takes place on October 13-14.
You will need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of these deals, but it is feasible to access them without taking out a long-term subscription.
Last year’s event Prime Day was hugely successful, with more than 1.75 million items sold in 48 hours to make it the largest shopping event in Amazon history.
Technology and electrical products were extremely popular, with 100,000 laptops, 200,000 televisions and 300,000 headphones purchased during the two-day event.
Read on as we take a closer look at Amazon Prime Day 2020 and point you in the direction of some items that could be amongst the best deals you will find.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day was first held on July 15, 2015, to mark the anniversary of the company, and was initially designed to be a flash sale of slow-moving products.
However, it has since grown into one the most prominent online retail events of the year, serving as an exciting precursor to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in November.
Discounts and sales go live throughout the 48-hour event, with products made available at reduced rates for varying amounts of time (or while stocks last).
Amazon devices such as Echo speakers, Fire TV devices and Kindles are often heavily discounted during Prime Day, making it the ideal time to purchase them.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?
Amazon Prime Day 2020 will start at 12.01 am on Tuesday, October 13, and run through to 11.59 pm on the following day.
The company decided to move the event from its usual summer slot, but it has confirmed that it will be packed with all the deals you have grown to love.
How Does Amazon Prime Day Work?
You need an Amazon Prime membership to access the deals. Membership costs £79 per year and provides subscribers with various perks including access to Prime Video and Amazon Music services.
If you are not a member and want to take advantage of the huge savings on offer, you can sign-up for a 30-day trial which you can cancel at any time within the 30 days with no strings attached.
What Deals Should I Look For?
Amazon’s own products tend to be slashed in price on Prime Day and we anticipate this will once again be the case in 2020.
The most successful Prime Day deals last year included the Instant Pot DUO60, continuing the trend towards tech-driven products being discounted during the event.
Televisions, laptops, audio and gaming products are extremely popular, while clothing and beauty products are also well worth looking for.
How do I get the Best Deals?
Downloading the Amazon app is the best way to prepare for Prime Day and take advantage of the deals you that most interest you.
It can be challenging to keep track of all the different items you want, but the app is an excellent tool for keeping things organised.
The app allows you to see the offers ahead of time and will alert you when the deal you are interested in goes live.
Once you have downloaded the app, login to your Amazon account, click ‘Today’s Deals’ and then ‘Upcoming’ in the menu on the bottom right-hand side.
Scroll through the deals and tap ‘Watch this Deal’ on any items you’re interested in – the app will send you an alert when these deals go live.
The app takes the guesswork out of Amazon Prime Day and will give you the best chance of securing the products you want.
