Amazon Prime Day 2020 is here, bringing with it 48 hours of deals and flash sales.
This year, Prime Day runs from Tuesday, Oct. 13 to Wednesday, Oct. 14, and there are more deals than ever to dig through — more a million, in fact. That could lead to a lot of time spent finding out what exactly is a good deal, and what’s worth skipping and waiting to buy on Black Friday instead.
There are also more alternative Prime Day sales going on to compete with the self-made “shopping holiday” for those who don’t want to spend their cash at Amazon. Instead, you might even browse some of the Black-owned businesses on Amazon to support this Prime Day.
Take a look below, and keep checking back throughout Prime Day because we’ll keep updating this guide:
Before Prime Day is officially over, we wanted to find the absolute best deals that are still live. From TVs that can let you stream away to cookware sets that’ll make mealtimes easier on you, you can check down below for Prime Day 2020 deals that are in stock.
Our shopping editors know a good deal when they see one. They’ve been clicking and scrolling away for weeks ahead of Prime Day, on the hunt to weed out the best deals from the unremarkable ones. From a water flosser to an office chair that’s not ugly, here’s what our editors are buying for themselves from all of the Prime Day deals happening now.
The can’t-miss Prime Day cookware deals on Calphalon, Cuisinart, Le Creuset and more at places like Amazon, Target and Macy’s. Check out our full guide.
This Prime Day, we’ve spotted everything from big ticket items like this Brooklinen bedding set to small, thoughtful gifts like Homesick Candles on sale. Take a look at our guide to deals to get now and gift later.
What are weighted blankets, you might wonder? These are blankets that have weights, like glass beads or pellets, sewn into them. Some swear by to help alleviate anxiety and sleep better. If you’re looking for one for yourself or to gift, there are plenty on sale this Prime Day. Check out our guide.
We found (mostly under $20!) Prime Day deals on everyday household finds you’ll get a lot of use out of. Take a look at our guide.
This Prime Day, you can shop Amazon and still support small businesses. Amazon is offering up to 20% off select products from its “Amazon Handmade” section, which is a space for small businesses to sell their own goods. (Think Amazon’s version of Etsy.) Amazon said in an announcement that this would be its “biggest small business promotion ever.” Check out our guide to our favorite small businesses to shop during the event.
You don’t need to get all brand new furniture to refresh your space, either. Sometimes a fresh start is in the details, whether that’s adding a new throw blanket on your couch or organizing your things properly to create more open space. Check out our guide to Prime Day home deals under $100.
There are plenty of kitchen deals that you don’t want to miss out on from big-name brands like Calphalon, KitchenAid, Keurig and Instant Pot, just to name a few. If you’ve been waiting to save on an air fryer for your French fries, a bread maker machine for homemade sourdough, a blender for smoothies, or even a pasta machine to master your penne, now’s your chance. Browse all of our Prime Day kitchen deals here.
Target is once again offering Target Deal Days on Oct. 13 and 14 —the same two days as Prime Day. During Target’s Deal Days, you’ll get free two-day shipping on items over $35 — a price point that isn’t hard to hit if you’re buying your usual Prime Day hot items such as the Instant Pot, a Dyson vacuum or the Revlon One-Step.

The Prime Day, Brooklinen is offering a rare deal for 15% off sitewide with no minimum purchase. The sale excludes “Spaces” items but there are still a ton of sheet sets, towels and even fluffy robes to snag at a discount.
From a cotton sheet set with almost 60,000 reviews to “Super Plush” robe that would make a perfect gift for mom this Christmas, you might just turn to Brooklinen for cozy gifting this year. One of our shopping editors swears by the linen hardcore bundle that comes with a matching duvet. Check out the sale here.
