Amazon Prime Day 2020 will supposedly take place in September this year!!
Amazon has felt the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, with a surge in demand leading to stock and distribution issues. Rumors have it they have decided to move it to September. The move to later in the year is believed to give Amazon time to restore “normalcy” to its services and workforce.
While this hasn’t been officially announced on their Prime Day page it does make sense.
The news also means that Amazon should be able to fulfill a greater variety of orders, and approach a return to the speedy delivery reputation that has made Amazon such a force to be reckoned with in online retail.
During the pandemic it has been forced to limit its sales to essential items only in some regions of the world, while its free next day and 1-hour delivery services, exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers, were hit with delays.
Last year’s Prime Day deals lasted 48 hours, so there were two full days of discounts, and we expect something similar in 2020. Amazon has historically picked a Monday to start the deals and Prime Day usually runs through Tuesday.
If September is indeed the month, that leaves one of four choices for the start of Prime Day 2020:
- Monday, September 7, 2020
- Monday, September 14, 2020
- Monday, September 21, 2020
- Monday September 28, 2020
