Amazon's Prime Day normally takes place in July, but this year it may come a little later.
Today's report also mentions that Amazon is expecting to take a $100 million hit from the excess devices that it may now have to sell at a discount.
Prime Day is a major event for Amazon when it rolls out a ton of discounts on a variety of products. Last year, Amazon offered more than 1 million deals to Prime members over two days.
With the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, hosting Prime Day 2020 in the usual mid-July timeframe may not be a good idea for Amazon. Not only could it be difficult for Amazon to fulfill all the orders from a huge Prime Day sale while people are concerned about the coronavirus and working to stop its spread, but some folks may feel that it's just not a good time for Amazon to host a major sale with everything going on with the coronavirus.
