All featured products are curated independently by our editors. When you buy something through our retail links, we may receive a commission.

It’s official: Amazon Prime Day 2020 is happening now, Oct. 13 and Oct. 14.

The online retailer’s annual sales event usually happens in summer, but was postponed due to coronavirus, with long shipping delays only recently starting to end. (Earlier reports put this year’s Prime Day no sooner than August or September, since any later and it would start to cut into the holiday shopping season—but consider this mid-October event the kickoff if you haven’t started yet.)

Amazon Echo Show Prime Day deal


Look out for good deals on AmazonBasics kitchenware, from sheet pans and silicone liners to enameled cast iron—but don’t stop there.

While they’re not as obviously food-related, the Fire tablet, Echo Spot, Echo Dot, and Echo Show are also helpful in the kitchen—from assisting with recipes and cooking questions to making it easy to update your grocery list (or just watch Netflix while you’re boiling pasta)—and we suspect they’ll sell just as well in 2020 as they did for the past couple years. Since they’re Amazon’s own brand, they’ll often more deeply discounted too.

Echo Dot 3rd Gen Smart Speaker with Alexa, $18.99 from Amazon (62% off)

Prime members can snag one (or more) for cheap right now.

Whole Foods Deals

Whether you want to go grocery shopping in-store or online, there are plenty of Prime Day deals on Whole Foods items to be had, including a $10 credit.

How Can You Get the Best Prime Day Deals?

No matter what you’re looking for, the best deals will likely be exclusive to Amazon Prime members, but other discounts will still be offered to all—check out The Cheapskate’s tips on making the most of Prime Day (and making sure you’re actually getting good deals during the mega shopping event) on Chowhound sister site CNET.

If you’re not currently a Prime subscriber, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial in time for this year’s Prime Day event.

Naturally, other retailer sites like Walmart and Target are offering their own Prime Day deals to counter the discounts available at Amazon.

For most of those deals, you won’t need to be a member (although that may confer extra perks—i.e., Target credit card holders will often get extra savings). We’ll cover all the best of those as well.
