Prime Day Update: Moving to October 2020, Still Subject to COVID change

One of the main Prime Benefits is the annual Prime Day which typically happens in the early summer. This year, because of COVID-19 seasons, it had been moved to September, and now according to new updates via Techmeme, the sale-a-bration is tentatively moved to October 2020. But still subject to change…

Considering that Black Friday is November 2020 and singles day is mid-November, the end of October is mayhaps the latest Amazon can do it without colliding with pre-existing sale-a-brations. On the other hand, this year could be Amazon’s embrace of Singles Day which could also be Prime Day. This paragraph being speculation of course…

Save the Date: Week starting July 12 has Woot Birthday Specials

If you are a fan of the way of the Woot, they are planning a variety of sale-a-brations for their 16th birthday on Sunday July 12 in 2020, and continuing during the rest of the week. They are teasing a number of the offerings, along with whatever else goes live on the actual dates.

Of note, Friday July 17 will have a Birthday Woot-OFF running from 7am to 10pm central time… During the week of sale-a-brations they’ll also have Prime exclusive deals and more… Check the aforelinked forum link for all the details…
