Prime Day will once again run two days this year, with discounts kicking off at midnight PT on Oct. 13 and lasting through Oct. 14, Amazon announced Monday. Members of Amazon’s Prime subscription program will get access to “over 1 million deals across every category,” including toys, electronics and apparel, the company said.
New on Prime Day 2020
Amazon also announced that it’s going to be offering a $10 savings on buying from US small businesses during Prime Day. The only catch? You have to spend at least $10 to save another $10. That seems like an excellent way to build support around the mega-retailer that’s often seen as hurting small businesses.

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is undoubtably going to be different than any other as the date shifts to later in the year. But we suspect many of the deals will mirror what we saw last year.
