Amazon Prime Day 2020 is finally here! It’s a few months later this year, which gives us a reason to start doing all of our holiday shopping sooner rather than later (i.e., Black Friday). Amazon Prime Day goes from October 13 and October 14, and we’re seeing major discounts on everything from tech to clothing and everything in between. These deals will be constantly changing, so expect us to add more and more deals throughout the day. Everything from the latest Instant Pot, to sweet cordless vacuums, to the latest tech (think Apple Airpods and the Echo).
Here are some of the best deals we’ve spotted (get it?), based on the sale as well as real-life reviews from real-life customers.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?
It starts officially at midnight (PT) on October 13 and runs until the end of the day October 14.
Check out our favorite Amazon Prime Day deals of 2020:
