Due to the issues faced with Covid, the annual Amazon Prime Day(s) was not run on the usual date in April this year.
Amazon has no confirmed the official date for 2020 is 13th & 14th October, which feels a little excessive knowing that Black Friday is just 6 weeks later, with Amazon often starting at least a week early.
However, some experts have advised that consumers should think about buying their Christmas presents early this year, with the expectation that it is going to be a bumper year for online sales because of covid. So you now get a double-whammy of affordable shopping from Amazon.
Spend £10, Get £10 with small businesses
This year Amazon are pretending that they care about small companies by offering Prime members who spend £10 with select small businesses selling in Amazon’s store from 28th Sept – Mon 12th October will earn £10 to spend on Prime Day
Amazon also claim they are investing more than £75 million to support small businesses globally with special Prime Day and holiday season promotional programmes
Prime Day will feature more than one million deals globally throughout the two-day event, from top brands including Philips, Toshiba, NESCAFÉ, LEGO, Nintendo, Shark, Samsung, Under Armour, Sony, Le Creuset and many more
