The pandemic has affected all of us, and it is safe to say that the entertainment industry had to suffer, as well. Amazon Prime Day has been delayed a lot of time – it did not happen in July, as it was supposed to be. But it has not been canceled for good. It seems that it will happen in October.
We know it will happen later than usual, but it will surely be a fantastic day for discounts for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will also be an excellent opportunity for you to get consoles and PC hardware at a discount and great deals on accessories and merch. In October there’s also Black Friday, so you will surely get some great deals this month.
We are here to tell you everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 2020.
Prime Day is an incredible sale that Amazon organizes every summer in July for its Prime members. It first happened in 2015, when Amazon celebrated its 20th birthday. The discounts are significant with this one.
When will Amazon Prime Day 2020 happen?
The event was first delayed to August and then to September. Now, it seems that the event will happen in October. It has been said that it is set for October 5. We are still waiting for an official statement, though. The event will last for 48 hours.
Will the coronavirus affect this event?
The new situation may have an effect on the deals and the availability of the products. Amazon has been one to prioritize essential household goods for several months now, so we might see a shortage of games and consoles. Also, we have heard that, because of the shut down of many factories in China, Amazon might not be able to meet the demands this year. Amazon is trying to get things under control by ordering greater amounts of products ahead of time, and the delay might help them on this matter, as well. The company stated: “Out of an abundance of caution, we are working with suppliers to secure additional inventory to ensure we maintain our selection for customers … We are monitoring developments related to the coronavirus and taking appropriate steps as needed.”
