Now’s the time: Amazon Prime Day 2020 might’ve been postponed from its usual July slot to October, but the 13th and 14th are full of more than 1 million deals across every Amazon category, from electronics to fashion home goods and everything in between. (Check out our list of the best tech deals here, and our list of the best movie and TV deals here.)
Deals that are already available include discounts on Fire TV devices, Toshiba Fire TV Smart TVs, and up to a 50 percent discount on select titles to rent or buy via Prime Video. However, there’s a lot more to come — and we’re rounding up the best deals here.
First, however, you’ll need to make sure you can access the deals as an Amazon Prime member. The deals are available only to subscribers. You can sign up here for a 30-day free trial, after which you’ll be charged $12.99 a month or $119 a year. Your membership gives you access to free two-day shipping (which makes the program so popular) as well as Prime Video, ad-free music streaming, unlimited photo storage, and unlimited reading. Students or those with a valid EBT/Medicaid card may be eligible for discounted memberships, too.
The spectrum of deals is wide, and includes discounts on toys, electronics, fashion, beauty, kitchen, home, and Amazon Devices (and more), from top brands that include Panasonic, Roborock, Keurig, Under Armour, Coleman, Simple Joys by Carter’s, adidas, Lacoste, Marvel, and Ticwatch (and more).
Prime Day kicks off at midnight PT on Tuesday, October 13 and runs through Wednesday, October 14, and is accessible for Prime members in the U.S. and abroad in the U.K, U.A.E, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, and, for the first time this year, Turkey and Brazil.

Once you connect to wifi, the 43-inch TV will stay up to date with automatic software updates. And the extended holiday return window means you have until Jan. 31, 2021 if you decide you don’t want to keep it.
