What Is Amazon Prime Day 2020? The Best Early Deals and Shopping Tips
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is getting closer and closer - and we're here with your Prime Day preview before we bring you the best Prime Day deals for 2020. This year Prime Day takes place on October 13th and 14th. The 48-hour preview Bonanza offers discounts that are comparable to those traditionally only offered on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The one catch? You must be a Prime member to buy in the sales. (If you don't already have one, you can sign up here.)
What is Prime Day?
Prime Day is Amazon's online shopping vacation - two days in fact. Some of the items available for sale have already been listed, but as with all highly anticipated sales events, most of the offers available are subject to a great deal of secrecy. If the past few years are any sign of this, we can expect substantial discounts on instant pots (Amazon sold more than 300,000 instant pots in the past few years on Prime Day) and hot ticket kitchen products like espresso machines and Dutch ovens. Last year, Epi readers were especially thrilled with the offerings for joule sous vide machines, cast iron pans and, oddly enough, KitchenAid meat grinder accessories.
When is Prime Day?
Again, Amazon hasn't confirmed any specific dates, but reports say the sale, which usually takes place in the summer, will happen sometime in October. With it's close to the end of the year, Prime Day is a good time to get your vacation shopping started early this year.
How does coronavirus affect Amazon Prime Day?
Coronavirus impacted operations on Amazon Prime Day: the event was delayed several times due to COVID-19. If the virus sees a second surge, it is possible, although unlikely, that the event will be delayed again. At the beginning of the pandemic, the company struggled to meet the stringent requirements, resulting in late deliveries. Most operations are now back to normal. We can probably expect delays for the actual event on Amazon Prime Day 2020 with no delay.
How to buy Amazon Prime Day
Set a deal alert for anything you have your eye on before Prime Day. You can do this from the desktop by adding the item to your shopping cart and clicking "Save for Later". Amazon will notify you when the price changes. If you want instant notifications, download the Amazon Shopping app. You can also select Today's Deals in the app to preview sales 24 hours before they go live. Prime Day is a particularly good time to shop for kitchen gadgets like toasters, waffle irons, and blenders. We encourage you to browse our product reviews and save any winners that are now missing from your kitchen. The event is particularly known for sales in the home and kitchen departments as well as the tech category.
How to Get Lightning Deals during Amazon Prime Day 2020
We'll be rounding up the best Amazon Prime Day deals on our favorite kitchen products and updating them throughout Prime Day. Much of the sales will be lightning deals, which means they will only be available for a short period of time (usually an hour). Sometimes the inventory is sold out well before this period ends. We will review and edit our stories every hour to ensure that every offer we offer you is as current as possible. Visit our website throughout the day for the most up-to-date information on Amazon Prime Day offers.
As we approach sales coverage on Prime Day
You won't see all the offers available on Prime Day on our website: we'll only offer products that we've either already approved after one of our rigorous product tests, or products our editors are happy to use at home. We'll also make sure that the deals are really deals - this means that no fake slashes are reported on inflated prices. Prime Day can be a great way to score big-ticket items and fun, low-risk doodads, but it can also be overwhelming. We hope we can help you make smart purchases by narrowing the field down to the very best of kitchen and kitchen products.
