What is the Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Amazon Canada Prime Day 2020

Had something on your shopping list that you hadn’t gotten around to buying just yet? Can’t justify the shipping costs on a 20-dollar purchase? Well, keep an eye on Amazon because Prime Day is coming up. Prime day is their annual event where the retail website offers massive deals and opportunities to save money on a variety of their products and services, including e-books and movies. Plus, they always have some sales you can take advantage of early. 

According to Amazon, there is going to be over a million deals globally this year. The two-day shopping event will provide Prime members with discounts on many product categories, including toys, TVs, electronics, fashion, beauty, kitchen, home, and Amazon Devices, such as the Echo Dot and other Alexa-compatible speakers.

When is Prime Day 2020? 

Prime Day 2020 is October 13th and 14th. So, even before the Thanksgiving turkey gets to settle in your stomach, you should already have your Amazon wish list ready to go. Despite the name, the event takes place over 48 hours. 

Prime Day Shopping Tips

Download the Amazon App: With the app you can get real-time notifications of deals as they come in. This makes it so you’ll never miss that item you want going on sale.

Double-check the price tag: Sites like CamelCamelCamel help you trace the price history of the products so you can see if you’re really getting a better deal, or if you’re better off holding out until Black Friday.

Make a wish list: Planning ahead is a good way to avoid spending money that you don’t want to. The further in advance you plan, the less likely you are to spend. Also, be sure to review your list a day or two in advance so you can really make sure that it’s something you want.

And don’t forget to cancel your free trial before it ends!
