Prime Day was delayed multiple times in 2020 and ended up happening on October 13 and 14 this year. This 2-day period featured a heavy focus on small and medium businesses with third-party sellers bringing in enormous amounts of revenue.
With Amazon’s big day of deals being over, it’s time to look forward to the Amazon Black Friday deals that will start arriving soon. We’re expecting to see many of the same savings we saw on Prime Day, but with more competition from a broader range of the Black Friday sales. Currently, Amazon is offering a whole host of daily deals for its Holiday Dash event. This flurry of discounts will last until November 19, which is when we expect to see some of the best deals of the year.
What were the best deals from Amazon Prime Day 2020?
We were expecting to see huge discounts on Apple Watches, cheap laptops, and Nintendo Switch bundles, but that just didn’t happen. While there were some price drops on older models, the majority of those discounts weren’t anything special. There was only one good MacBook deal on Amazon throughout the sale as well.
Naturally, Amazon’s own devices got some really good price drops, but we expect that from them every year.
The best discounts beyond Amazon devices are on robot vacuums, Instant Pots, 4K TVs, and AirPods. Some of these deals still remain, but you can be sure they will be back in time for Black Friday sales
When will Prime Day be next year?
If you’ve already done all of your holiday shopping ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 and are already thinking ahead to Prime Day 2021, we’ve got some bad news for you: We have no idea when it will be.
Considering Prime Day 2020 was delayed several times due to shipping concerns and the pandemic is showing no signs of slowing down, it’s hard to forecast an exact date. That being said, we can look at past Prime Days and venture a guess at what Amazon will do in 2021.
Assuming things get relatively back to normal before the summer of next year, it’s highly probable that Amazon will reinstate its usual July dates for the event. Traditionally, the shopping extravaganza has kicked off during the second week of July.
