What Is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Unless you live under a rock, you are well aware of the biggest online merchant in the world – Amazon.  Starting in 2014, Amazon introduced Prime Day – dubbed their biggest sale event of the year.  Typically in mid July, the day long sale (although it’s longer this year) features hundreds of thousands of deals.  

As a resourceful Prepper, I use Amazon Prime day to my advantage and scan the site for awesome deals on survival, outdoor, emergency, camping, hiking, and hunting gear (sometimes upwards of 60-80% off).  To start off, let’s go through the basics of Amazon Prime day 2020.

When Is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2020 will begin at 12 a.m. PT on Tuesday October 13 2020 and will run through Wednesday October 14 2020.

How Do You Buy On Amazon Prime Day?

Deals will be posted to this page on Prime Day, and will change ALL THE TIME!  Be sure to check back on the link often to see what is out there.

To participate in Amazon Prime day you do need to be an “Amazon Prime” member.  So if you don’t have a membership already, but found an awesome deal you need to snag before they sell out, then sign up for a FREE 30-day trial sometime before Prime Day officially starts.

What Are The Best Ways To Be Ready For Deals?

  • Be sure to bookmark this page and check it often.  I will be updating with information as we get closer to Amazon Prime Day.
  • Be sure you have Amazon Prime (or the free trial) before October 13.  Once the day has started and deals are live, some of them can go pretty fast.
  • Create your own shopping list beforehand.  Below is a list of top gear that I would recommend checking out to see if you can score any great deals that meet your Prepping needs.  Also, create a list by category instead of individual product.  If you know you need a generator, or tent, or anything else, identify the need first, then be ready to pull the trigger when you find the right product.
  • In general I would recommend sticking with top brand names.  Amazon negotiates hard with its suppliers to ensure that Amazon will offer the lowest price of the year on certain products.  If it’s a trusted brand, then there is little to worry about in terms of quality.  Off brand products you may need to inspect and research a little bit more before buying and the product could sell out before you are ready to purchase.
