Prime Day 2020: Get the Details

Amazon’s Prime Day usually takes place in the summer. Due to concerns with COVID-19 it was uncertain when and if we would see Prime Day this year. If you were disappointed in that, I have some good news. There will be a Prime Day 2020 and it will take place Oct 13 – 14.

When

So yea I know I already told you it’s happening Oct 13 – 14 so you actually get Prime Days not just 1 day. Specifically Prime Day kicks off at midnight PT so I’m guessing that means 9 PM for us EST folks? I mean that’s cool with me. The deals run through Wednesday Oct 14.

Who

First of all, you have to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deals (and don’t forget the free shipping!) Don’t forget, if you’re not a Prime member you get 30 days free trial for new customer!

“In the midst of an unprecedented year, we’re committed to making this the most successful Prime Day ever for our small businesses and excited for Prime members worldwide to discover new ways to support local entrepreneurs and save big on everything they need and love,” said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer. “This year’s Prime Day is the perfect opportunity for Prime members to get their holiday shopping done early from the comfort of their homes – and to have more time to spend with their families and friends throughout the season.”

About Woot!

Ok, this is serious because it’s a boilerplate, so no jokes here. Starting…NOW. Woot! is the original daily deals site, founded in 2004 and snatched up by Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) in 2010. Originally, Woot! offered just one product per day until it sold out. Today, Woot! offers special daily deals and other limited time offers across seven categories, including computers, electronics, home and sporting goods, plus original t-shirts, on Woot.com.
