Amazon Prime Day was delayed this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Amazon has announced that its annual sales holiday will go on… just a little later than usual.
Prime Day is scheduled for October 13 and 14, but the company is already offering some early deals to Prime members. For example, you can save $100 on an Amazon Fire Recast DVR/media streamer, pick up a 2-pack of 3rd-gen Echo Dot smart speaker for $40, or score a half price subscription to Kindle Unlimited or get 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for $1.
You need a Prime membership to get those deals, but you can always sign up for a 30-day free trial and then cancel after Prime Day.
