Amazon officially announced Prime Day 2020 will be October 13 and 14; this year, like 2019, the mega-sales event will span 48 hours. So, now that the date is definite, we can all start planning our shopping for Prime Day deals. Here’s something else that’s definite about Prime Day 2020: A select list of items Amazon has discounted throughout 2020 that are sure to be on sale during Prime Day.
You can count on hefty discounts for Amazon-owned brands such as Echo, Ring, Blink, Fire TV, Kindle, and Fire tablets. We chose the following eight high-demand products based on sales activity and pricing trends we’ve seen this year. For each of these products, we have predicted a Prime Day 2020 sale price, based on our research. Our price predictions aren’t guaranteed, nor are they inside info. However, by looking back a few years to see how Amazon priced the same or earlier models of these products, we believe these predictions will prove exact or very close and should help you decide what to buy on Prime Day.

The leading brand in robot vacuums, iRobot’s Roomba floor cleaners have a reputation for power and navigation abilities.
