As Amazon Prime Day 2020 is nearly upon us, don’t miss out on taking advantage of the impressive discounts on everything from game consoles and TVs to kids toys and laptops.
Like previous years, there will be more than a million deals available across big-name brands such as Sony, Dyson, Nintendo, Lego, Toshiba and Apple.
You may recall former Prime Day sales as being in July, however, it has been postponed to later this month because of the pandemic, running from 13 to 14 October.
The impact coronavirus has had on small businesses hasn’t been forgotten by Amazon either, as the retailer is rewarding Prime members who spend £10 with select small businesses from 28 September to 12 October with £10 to spend on Prime Day.
It’s one of the best times of the year to save money on heavy duty appliances, so if you’ve had your eye on a new kitchen stand mixer, slow cooker or vacuum cleaner, wait until the Prime Day event for some serious discounts.
