A new leak suggests that Amazon Prime Day will happen on Tuesday, October 13. Traditionally held in July, Prime Day was postponed this year as a result of the pandemic.
However, Amazon has allegedly blacked out vacation for its full time warehouse employees from October 13 through October 20, according to The Verge. It’s unlikely that Prime Day will last a full week, but clearly Amazon has something big in store for mid-October.
When asked about the email, a spokesperson for Amazon told The Verge, “Stay tuned for more details on Prime Day.” They added that customers can ask their Alexa devices to keep them updated on the status of the annual shopping event.
In 2019, Prime Day took place between July 15th and 16th. Following unprecedented consumer demand due to the coronavirus pandemic, Amazon officially delayed this year’s event on July 21st. “This year we’ll be holding Prime Day later than usual, while ensuring the safety of our employees and supporting our customers and selling partners,” the company said at the time. If this year’s Prime day is anything like past ones, Prime subscribers can expect deep discounts on Amazon brands, Whole Foods Market items and a host of other products.
