Amazon have finally confirmed when the 2020 instalment of Amazon Prime Day will be after the usual July festival of deals was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After generating a reported $3.4 billion in 2018’s Amazon Prime Day, the 2019 edition went on to become the largest shopping event in Amazon history as the company sold over 100,000 laptops and 200,000 TVs, among other things.
Amazingly, Prime Day sales often surpass that of both Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
While the global situation may stop this breaking yet more records, it will without a doubt be another extravaganza of top deals and low prices as businesses slash prices to take advantage of the huge surge in shopper demand.
So, to get you fully prepared for this year’s event, we’ve put together a guide that tells you everything you need to know. And remember to check back as well, because this page will be updated with all the best Amazon Prime Day photography deals!
First launched in July 2015 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Amazon’s inception, Amazon Prime Day is a day-long festival of sales across a wide range of products, although many are focused on electronics and technology.
The 2015 iteration was such a success that Amazon brought it back the next year, and the year after that. Each year has been bigger and better than the last and it’s become a major talking point in the shopping calendar.
To get access to the Amazon Prime Day sales users must be signed up to Amazon Prime, an annual subscription plan that gives you access to free Prime delivery, Prime TV, Prime Music and more.

Amazon Prime Day normally takes place in July to coincide with Amazon’s anniversary, but the COVID-19 pandemic saw the event pushed back amid the global chaos.
Finally, the company have confirmed that Amazon Prime Day 2020 will take place on Tuesday, October 13th and run into Wednesday, October 14th.
Not only that, but early Amazon Prime Day deals will be available from as early as September 28th!
As we’ve already mentioned, you need to be a member of Amazon Prime to get access to the Prime Day deals. Once you are it’s all very simple.
Generally speaking, Amazon Prime Day deals are split into two categories:
All you need to do is keep an eye out for the sales and then stay alert!
Consumerism is powerful, and Amazon Prime Days frenetic Lightning Deals and limited stock feed into the dreaded FOMO of the sale shopper.
It’s very important not to get sucked into the whole frenzy, otherwise you could emerge the other side a whole lot poorer and with a whole lot more useless clutter set to arrive on your doorstep.
To try and help with this, we’ve compiled a few tips for avoiding the consumerist trap and getting the best Amazon Prime Day deals:
While Black Friday and Cyber Monday generally offer a broad range of departments and offers, Amazon Prime Day tends to hone in on the technology and electronics areas.
This is especially true for their own devices, with products such as the Kindle, Amazon Echo, Fire TV Stick and Ring Doorbell receiving the biggest discounts. In fact, if you want one of Amazon’s devices you’re unlikely to find a better price than on Prime Day.
Other heavily discounted areas include laptops, TVs and headphones, but photography equipment isn’t neglected. However, if you’re looking to upgrade your post-processing workstation or add an external hard drive to your kit, now is the time!
Remember to keep checking back for more deals, and you can find recommendations for all manner of photography gear at the bottom of this page too.
Let’s kick off with a cracker. An absolute ton of Canon gear is currently on sale, from beginner cameras to lenses. You can find the full list of Canon deals here, but we’ve compiled some of our favorites below.
