We learned earlier this year that Amazon was delaying Prime Day, its biggest sale of the year, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since then there's been a lot of speculation about when the event might happen, and now it looks like we may finally have some dates.
Amazon Prime Day 2020 will reportedly take place on October 13 and 14. That's according to internal Amazon emails viewed by The Verge, which add that Amazon will officially announce these Prime Day 2020 dates on September 27.
When asked about these dates, an Amazon spokesperson said, "Stay tuned for more details on Prime Day."
Additionally, today's report says that Amazon warehouse workers have been told that no new vacation requests will be accepted for October 13 through October 20. That suggests that Amazon wants as many warehouse employees available as it can get to help handle the high volume of orders that would come with a Prime Day sale.
Amazon has been running Prime Day sales for years now, offering discounts on a wide variety of products. The Prime Day 2019 sale ran for 48 hours and included more than one million deals available to Amazon Prime members. While this year's sale is happening later than normal, we're betting that Amazon will go just as big if not bigger than it has in the past.
