Amazon Prime Day Promotions Spotlight Smart Home

Amazon will kick off Prime Day at 12 a.m. Pacific time and 3 a.m. Eastern time on October 13 in 19 countries worldwide, offering its Prime members exclusive access to more than one million deals on toys, electronics, fashion, Amazon devices and products for the home, among other categories.

For those who want to speak up, select deals in the Shop with Alexa on Echo devices initiative start early, on October 11. To get them, voice shoppers just ask, “Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?”

Prime members can support small businesses on the promotional occasion by shopping deals featured in the Support Small storefront, Amazon Handmade and Amazon Launchpad, the retailer pointed out, adding that more than half of the items sold in Amazon’s store worldwide are from third-party sellers, mostly small and medium-sized businesses. For this year’s event, Amazon has launched new, curated collections to connect customers with small businesses, and, through October 12, it is offering a $10 credit to use on Prime Day to members who spend $10 on items sold by select small businesses.

Prime Day 2020 also will feature lightning deals on top-tier brands and products including iRobot Roomba vacuums, the retailer noted.
