Amazon’s annual deals bonanza is back, though it’s arriving three months later than usual due to COVID-19. Normally held in July, Amazon Prime Day 2020 will instead run through October 13 and 14, and the huge sale is live now on the retailer’s website.
As usual, the sale features thousands upon thousands of deals across all of Amazon’s categories, including not only gaming and tech but also fashion, kitchen, beauty, and more. You’ll also find a ton of discounts on Amazon’s own hardware, such as Echos and Kindles. Prime Day is a great time to stock up on anything you need or want to buy for someone before the holidays, and it’s a good opportunity to snag any gaming gear on your wish list before the next-generation of consoles and new games release next month.
As usual, Amazon’s biggest competitors, including Best Buy, Walmart, and Target, are hosting their own anti-Prime Day sales this week and offering some serious discounts as well. Walmart’s Big Save event went live early and runs through Thursday, while Best Buy and Target‘s sales are only live on Tuesday and Wednesday, overlapping neatly with Prime Day. If you’re looking for deals on not only games but also collectibles and gifts, GameStop’s 1UP sale will be worth browsing. And for gaming laptop deals, check out the Microsoft Store early holiday sale.
