The sixth edition of Amazon Prime Day is upon us with hot new deals on gadgets, goods, and everything in between. If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the deals over the course of Amazon’s 48-hour event (yes, it’s technically Prime Days).

Not a Prime member? You can sign up for the Amazon Prime subscription here to gain access to Prime Day 2020 deals plus other year-round perks such as free two-day shipping, unlimited movie and TV streaming, and so much more. Here’s what to know about Amazon Prime Day 2020 and how to snag the hottest deals.

When is Prime Day 2020?

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is going to be held over the course of two days, October 13th and 14th. The event begins at midnight on October 13th and ends at 11:59 pm on October 14th in each respective country. Countries participating in the event include the United States, UK, UAE, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, and Turkey.

Usually held in July, this year’s Prime Day is so close to the kickoff of the annual holiday shopping season that many note it’s the best time to get great deals on not only holiday gifts but on decorations, candy, and all things festive you’ll need for a budget-friendly holiday season.

Again, you’ll need a Prime membership to access the thousands of deals and discounted prices that go live on October 13th. If you aren’t already a Prime member, you can sign up for a 30-day trial or, if you frequently shop on Amazon, go ahead and sign up for the real deal. Monthly memberships are as cheap as USD $12.99 in the United States, CAD $7.99 in Canada, and between about €4.99 to €8.99 per month in various countries throughout Europe.

Tips for shopping on Prime Day

This year’s Amazon Prime Day looks a bit different in that the mega marketplace is trying to give a piece of the pie back to small businesses after the economic hardships they faced and continue to face during the pandemic. For Prime Day 2020, Amazon is offering an extra $10 credit (or €10 credit in Europe) to spend if you shop with select small businesses from now until October 12th. As well, Amazon has made it easier than ever to support Black-owned, woman-owned, and family-owned businesses by installing a unique search filter on their website.

Because Prime Day 2020 is so long this year (a whopping 48 hours of exclusive deals and slashed prices), you’re able to take advantage of Amazon’s “Watch This Deal” button on the Amazon app. If you’re interested in a specific item, you’re able to click the button and Amazon will alert you as soon as it goes on sale. This is helpful in ensuring you don’t miss a single deal this year.

One of the early-access deals that’s available now in the US is the chance to snag two Echo Dots to complete your smart home. Buy two and save $20 off the original price with code DOT2PACK at checkout. Similar deals are available in other countries, with the Eero Home Wifi System in Spain selling for over €100 off the regular retail price and the Echo Plus in Canada selling for just $79.99 (that’s $120 off the regular price).

Not sure what to buy over Amazon’s 48-hour sale event? Last year, electronics, appliances, and household goods were some of the most steeply discounted products. This included everything from laptops and home security systems to tablets, smart TVs, and robot vacuums. Be sure to take a look at Amazon’s deals page to stay updated.
