Newegg Primes For Mid-October Sales Event

Amazon is getting another contender for shopping on what has been set as its latest Prime Day event on October 13 and 14, this time from Newegg.

Newegg is launching a promotion dubbed FantasTech: Round 2, which it announced as the second installment of its 2020 FantasTech sale. The first installment occured in mid-July, with the second round slated to start on October 13 and carry on with 72 hours of deals focused on tech products. Taken together, the promotions will mark Newegg’s most aggressive FantasTech campaign to date. The 2020 second round will mark the first time Newegg will divide the FantasTech promotion into two separate events.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued into the fall, online shopping has maintained a fast pace, in part because consumers are upgrading technology and ancillary products for their homes. The driving forces vary but include a desire to update home offices and set up children for successful distance learning experiences, not to mention enhance leisure hours. FantasTech: Round 2 savings will address the increased demand with discounts on the most sought-after technology products, Newegg noted.

“2020 has been a year like no other, which is why we are breaking with tradition and doubling down on our annual FantasTech sale,” said Anthony Chow, Newegg Global CEO. “Demand for technology products is strong, so we’re responding to that demand with discounts and promotions to make it easier than ever for our customers to purchase products to enrich their lives during these unprecedented times.”
