Amazon Prime Day 2020: What to know about the online sales event

Amazon Prime Day is coming up fast.

The two-day sales event typically happens in July, but it had to be postponed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

What makes it different this year?

According to CNET, Amazon has shifted this year’s Prime Day to focus on ways the company can help people save money on things they need during an economic downturn and ways the company supports small businesses that use its marketplace platform.

The day is also expected to be a chance for people to get a head start on holiday shopping — which could impact Black Friday sales next month, CNET reported.
