Amazon Prime Day Has Been Postponed—Here’s the New Date for 2020

It was originally in July, then September, and now it's shifted again.

Let’s face it—many of us would be lost without Amazon Prime. We all have houses full of products from Amazon, like this Instant Pot, which was literally the most purchased kitchen item last year.

Thanks to its boundless inventory, we can always find what we’re looking for on Amazon. It’s usually a good deal, too. That’s kind of Amazon’s thing, especially when Amazon Prime Day rolls around. It’s Black Friday for Amazon shoppers, offering incredible prices on everything from cast-iron cookware to Bluetooth lights.

But of course, 2020 isn’t a normal year. Like everything else, Prime Day has had to adjust and reschedule. Here’s when this day of Prime deals is happening.

When Is Prime Day?

Prime Day has moved to October, likely because of COVID-related shortages and shipping delays. Amazon hasn’t officially announced a specific date, but a CNBC report said the week of October 5 is the placeholder date. In the grand scheme of COVID-related delays, it’s not so bad. What’s one more month?

What Should I Buy on Prime Day?

First things first: If you want to participate in Prime Day, you’ve got to have Amazon Prime! Once you’re signed up, all kinds of doors open for you, including incredible savings on expensive household items. And if you don’t have a ton of cash to spare right now, Amazon still has you covered: They’ve got plenty of products under $25 for your kitchen, garden and home.

In the past, Prime Day has offered some jaw-dropping deals on home goods, too, so if you’re looking for a way to change up your living space, you’ll want to get Prime and start filling your cart. There’s something for everyone on Prime Day, and we’re choosing to see this delay as more time we can spend making our shopping lists.
