What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is now one of the most highly anticipated and exclusive shopping dates ever. The annual event even rivals Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, unlike these huge shopping events in November, Amazon Prime Day is only accessible to Amazon Prime members, meaning there’s no time like right now to sign up for your free trial of Amazon Prime.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

This year, Amazon has been shaking things up and instead of hosting the Prime Day event as tradition in mid-July, the sale has been scheduled for October! Yep, you read that right. The online giant is hosting a two-day event that will run from midnight on 13th October through to 11:59 PM on 14th October, ensuring that this year’s sale is even bigger than last year’s 36-hour extravaganza.

How to score pre-Prime Day sales

Stay alert and keep a lookout for pre-sale discounts in the lead up to the event. Last year, exclusive deals started as early as 2-weeks prior to the Prime Day event and Prime Members were privy to 40% off Kindle Unlimited memberships as well as a discount on Amazon music streaming.

Another way you can look to access early Amazon Prime Day deals is to ask your Echo for early Prime deals. Last year, Alexa doled out exclusive savings to Echo owners two hours before the actual event kicked off. Start asking you Echo about Prime deals at around 9 p.m. the night before the official date.

Can you preview Amazon Prime Day deals?

If you ask Alexa, there is a chance that you’ll be able to learn about many exclusive deals days before Prime Day starts, giving you that highly-coveted sneak peak of what’s to come. Bear in mind that Amazon Prime Day is laid out in what it calls “Lightning Deals,” which only last for a very limited time before they’re gone. So, it pays off to know exactly what you’re looking for before you open the app.

Amazon Prime Day shopping tips

As with all major sales events, there are pros and cons to shopping on Amazon Prime Day. You can score some of the best deals all year by knowing what to look for and doing some research beforehand. Here are our top tips for picking up the best deals on Prime Day:

  • Know when to strike and when to pass. The Prime Day Lightning Deals are released as often as every five minutes which can quickly turn an online shopping spree into a frenzy. While you do need to act fast to secure the products you really want, don’t give into the temptation to hit the “Add to Cart” button on every single item that flashes across your screen. Where possible, take the time to do a quick Internet search to confirm that the Prime Day price is really as good as it seems.
  • Always read the fine print. Some Prime Day deals, particularly on big-ticket electronics like TVs and smart devices, mask the brand name and model number until seconds before the sale drops, so ensure you double-check these details before jumping on a low price.
  • Plan ahead. Never, ever go into a sale event with no idea what it is you want to buy. Take some time before the sales start to think about what it is that you actually need or want to buy. Make a list of everything you want to pick up and give your sale shopping spree a purpose. By doing so, you’ll avoid the otherwise inevitable ending where you walk away with a pile of things you didn’t really want or need.
  • Check reviews. Sale events can make you feel rushed to snatch up a discount, meaning you might not take the time to read through product reviews as carefully as you normally would. Whatever you do, don’t skip this step unless you’re already familiar with the product and know for sure it’s what you want.
  • Compare prices. As Amazon Prime Day this year is being launched close to Black Friday, you might want to check out competitor prices online. By now, other retailers are fully aware of Amazon’s biggest deal day of the year, so there’s a chance you could find similar or even better deals by shopping around.
  • Voice shop. If you have an Echo device, take advantage of exclusive deals by voice shopping with Alexa.
