Deals to watch on Amazon Prime Day

Business

DALLAS (NewsNation Now) — Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale has begun.

The two-day sale kicks off Tuesday and carries into Wednesday.

It’s the first time the sales event is being held in the fall. The event was postponed from July due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Even before Amazon’s announcement, major retailers have said they planned to push shoppers to start their holiday shopping in October, hoping to avoid crowds in their stores in November and December.

Here’s a breakdown of deals likely to land in your shopping cart.

Amazon Products:

Often, the most heavily discounted products on Prime Day are Amazon’s own products. This would include items such as the Amazon Echo and Alexa devices, Fire TV Stick, and Amazon Kindle. In 2019, some of these products were slashed by as much as 50%.

Apple Products:

While it can be difficult to find a good deal on Apple products, Amazon offered some solid discounts in 2019. The experts say you’ll likely see deals on iPads, Macbooks and potentially its AirPods. 

Televisions:

TVs are always part of Amazon Prime Day. If you can’t wait until Black Friday to score a 4K TV, this may be your first stop. In the past, products have been discounted by hundreds of dollars.

Ring Video:

Some fantastic deals on Ring security products were offered in 2019, and Ring items were among the most popular offerings. Expect to see similar deals offered in 2020.

Instant Pots:

Kitchen appliances are a staple of Prime Day, and the most popular deals in 2019 centered around Instant Pot products. Last year, these were offered for as much as 60% off.

Headphones:

There’s no shortage of headphones available on the market, so you can expect some deep discounts on these products in hopes of boosting sales ahead of the holiday season. The same likely goes for speakers.

Fitbits:

In past years, Prime Day has been a great opportunity to score a Fitbit for much less than retail value. With a much more competitive marketplace for athletic products, you can expect similar deals in 2020.
