Amazon Prime Day 2020 is expected to occur a little later in the year this time. The event is believed to be postponed until August, so bargain hunters may just have to wait a little more time for those deals to hit.
With all the talk about this event, you may be wondering what it actually is. This event is hosted by Amazon Prime usually around the middle of July.

When is Prime Day 2020?
Bargain hunters have been waiting a long time for this day to come, and while it is being pushed back due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it is still worth all of the excitement. This event usually occurs from July 15th to 16th, however, there are multiple speculations as to when the event will occur this year.
Internal meeting notes intercepted by Reuters indicate that the event may occur as early as July whereas other sources such as the Wall Street Journal and Business Insider claim that it may occur in either September or October. Regardless, we can expect that the event will happen before Black Friday.
The event is postponed due to the fear of how the spread of coronavirus will impact the company’s supply chain. The company itself has not released an official statement on when they expect the event to take place.
How Long Will it Last?
This event usually occurs for a full 48 hours, although if Amazon chooses to go with a more Cyber Week approach, it may last for a full week. Of course, a Prime Week would make sense because the company had more success with this event than any other in the past.
What Deals Can We Expect?
Unlike Black Friday or Cyber Monday, this event is not limited in the types of products to give deals on. Prime Day deals can involve any type of product from Fire TV sticks and tablets to 8k TVs and watches. Nothing is exempt from being sold on during this event and it is the perfect day to buy that new TV you have always wanted. The deals are for everyone and include products that the entire family will love. You may even find health and wellness deals!
The products will the most price reductions will be Amazon’s own products such as the Echo and Kindle. Last year’s sale had Macbooks being sold for nearly 50% off! There are dozens of retailers looking to sell their products during this event and thus, no one can be sure what will actually be sold this year.
Are These Deals Legitimate?
With price reductions such as these, you may wonder if these products are even worth purchasing. The truth of the matter is that it all depends on the product itself. One way to tell if it is worth your money is by searching for the product online and looking at reviews.
You must understand some of the tricks that retailers use to sell old or stagnant products. For instance, you may find a product advertised as new and recent at an astonishingly low price, however, when checking the specifications, you find that the product was released a few years ago. This goes the same for all fo the products being sold during this event. Retailers will attempt to sell the remaining of their old products and it is important to be wary of these products.
The retailers are not exactly at fault in this situation. They are not required to disclose all of the information about the product and this is why it is highly recommended to perform research before purchasing a product. Check the specifications to ensure that it is indeed the product you want to buy.
How Can You Access the Sale?
There are multiple ways to access this sale. If you have a tablet or smartphone, you can access the sale easily through the mobile app. The sale will include the same products as it would on the website. This sale is mostly virtual and thus, cannot be accessed through in-person means. It is best to keep it this way because not only does it help us maintain social distancing measures, but it keeps everyone safe.
