Amazon Prime Day Has Been Postponed

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. Usually covering a 48-hour period in July (it began as single day before expanding), Prime Day is Black Friday for Amazon shoppers, offering incredible prices on everything from vacuums to Bluetooth lights.

But of course, 2020 isn’t a normal year. Like everything else, Prime Day had to be adjusted and rescheduled. 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 new date, but a CNBC report suggested the week of October 5 as the likely time. In the grand scheme of COVID-related delays, it’s not so bad. What’s three more months?

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 (like wireless remote digital meat thermometers). And if you don’t have a ton of cash to spare, Amazon still has you covered: They’ve got plenty of products under $25 for your workshop, garden and home.

In the past, Prime Day offered some jaw-dropping deals on home goods, too. So if you’re looking 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.
