When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Prime Day 2019 was a two-day sale of pretty much non-stop deals that started on 15th July, 2019. Back in 2018, it was a 36-hour event that happened on 16th July. 

Prime Day 2020 kicks off on 00.01am on Tuesday 13th October and ends on 23.59pm on Wednesday 14th October.

Previously, we had thought that Amazon might decide to go earlier than usual with Prime Day 2020 to get ahead of the competition, who might be readying rival deals for non-Prime members. There were rumours of an August date, and then September, but at least it is happening in good time before Black Friday

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon’s take on Black Friday. While every online retailer gets involved in the now annual Black Friday bargain bun fight, Prime Day is all about Amazon.

The special day of deals is a members-only affair, so you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the offers. Thanks to Amazon’s 30-day Prime free trial, there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership. Up until 12th October, new Prime members can also get £5 credit added to their account when they sign up for Prime via Alexa on their Echo device by saying, “Alexa, sign me up for Prime.”

Prime members are then able to take advantage of limited time only ‘Lightning deals’ as well as broader Prime Day deals across the site.

Amazon promises new deals every few minutes, with the deals dropping on the website and on the Amazon app (which gave members an early heads-up on the deals). 

Prime Day will take place in the UK, US, United Arab Emirates, Spain, Singapore, the Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia and, for the first time, Turkey and Brazil. 

Prime Day 2019: what happened

So what did we learn from Prime Day last year? Well, there were A LOT of deals. And Amazon sold an almost unfathomably high number of products, which must mean there are lots of happy bargain-hunters enjoying their shiny new toys right now.

In total, Amazon sold 175 million items, making it the biggest ever shopping event for the online retail behemoth, bigger even than Black Friday. Amazon Prime members across 18 countries were involved, double the number since the first Prime Day five years ago.

And with more Prime members than ever signing up over the two days of Prime Day, it looks like Amazon Prime Day 2020 will only be bigger.
