Amazon Prime Day – What You Need To Know

Five years since it announced its very first Prime Day in honour of its 20th birthday in July 2015, Amazon has this year, delayed Prime Day to the 13th and 14th of October 2020. Over a 48-hour period, Amazon is enticing buyers and shoppers with promises of significant discounts on many of it’s warehouse stock.

While most businesses have been hit by the pandemic, forcing people indoors to the safety of their own homes, business at Amazon has soared. With its huge warehouses and independent delivery network, Amazon has thrived as more and more people shop online from home. Significant shopping demand over the Spring-Summer months of 2020 was challenging for Amazon as they worked hard to meet the demand of their almost 150 million Prime members.

Now, it’s time to get on with what rivals Black Friday as one of the best shopping events of the year – Prime Day.
