Prime Day 2020: Here’s what we know


Prime Day 2020 is still a question-mark.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020? That’s an increasingly complicated question to answer. The sale traditionally takes place in July, but with coronavirus uncertainties still looming, the company has reportedly postponed the massive sales event — for the second time. Now, instead of a September Prime Day, it looks like Amazon might push back to October.

Assuming that happens, will Prime Day 2020 play out like in years past? The 2019 sale spanned 48 weekday hours, with most of the biggest discounts applying to Amazon’s own products and brands: Blink cameras, Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Fire TV streamers and the full range of Echo smart speakers. We also witnessed solid discounts on third-party products like iPads, Instant Pots and Bose headphones.
