Prime Day 2020 was the Prime Day that almost didn’t happen. The yearly shopping event which typically takes place in July, was indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic but eventually got rescheduled for October 13-14. Find out how it stacked up to last year in our Prime Day 2020 recap!

This year our members shared less deals, but they received more views and generated more discussion over Prime Day 2019. The most popular deal again was a "free money" deal for buying an Amazon gift card. Almost everyone can make use of a $30 Amazon gift card so why not get a free $6 to spend on top of that?
After Prime Day 2019, Amazon stated that it was their most successful Prime Day ever. This Prime Day the same claim wasn’t made, however they did say that “Prime Day 2020 marked the two biggest shopping days ever for small and medium-sized businesses” and that “Prime members saved more than $1.4 billion”.
There were some great deals this year, but many RedFlagDeals members posted saying that last year's Prime Day was better. Many Prime Day deals shipped and sold by Amazon were quick to sell out, including the popular Fire TV Stick 4K at $44.99. Items from 3rd party sellers seemed to have better availability overall.
With all that said, a delayed Prime Day is still better than no Prime Day in my opinion.
