Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Christmas is in 73 days.

 

It’s like Black Friday today!

It may be three months late this year, but Amazon Prime Day 2020 has arrived, and you’ve got two days to rack up the credit card with deals kicking off this morning.

Even better: Target, Walmart and Best Buy have announced sales of their own to compete with Amazon, and many of those sales are both in-store and online.

The one big downside of Amazon Prime Day compared with Black Friday is that Amazon does not list the deals in advance.

But that is on purpose:  It gets shoppers to come back to the site again and again for 48 straight hours.  It also drives employers crazy, knowing their workers are shopping all day!!

Tons of deals on Alexa’s, Echo’s, Ring doorbells, Fire sticks, Kindles…also look for markdowns on lots of household items, from the Instant Pot to more obscure things.

To catch the best bargains, you will want to check Amazon frequently. Some of the best deals are Lightning Deals that change hourly.

You can also set an email alert for specific items you want (such as a blender or certain TV), and get alerted when that item goes on sale.

The sale is only for Amazon Prime customers.  However, if you are not a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial, then cancel on the 29th day so you are not charged the $120 annual Prime fee.

How to shop Amazon Prime Day this week

It may be three months late this year, but Amazon Prime Day 2020 h as arrived, with two days of deals kicking off early Tuesday morning. The pandemic delay may actually be a good thing for most shoppers. With many major stores closed Thanksgiving night this year, this week's sale kicks off an extended holiday shopping season.
