You’ll have to wait a little longer for your favorite Amazon shopping day!
Usually, in mid-July, Amazon kicks off Amazon Prime Day, a special day of deals that are offered exclusively for Prime members. But this year, Amazon has announced that they will be postponing Amazon Prime Day, tentatively to the week of October 5th. An exact date has still not been set.
Amazon has decided to push back this huge sale to help them focus on their increased demand for essential items during the Coronavirus pandemic, as well as keeping their employees safe.
As millions of Americans turned to Amazon to have household goods delivered, Amazon has faced shipping delays and inventory shortages. The hope is that by pushing Prime Day back, they will be better prepared for the large number of sales expected during the sale.
But don’t fret! Pushing back Prime Day means it’ll be closer to the holiday season, giving you a head start on your holiday shopping!
