Moms: The Holiday Shopping Season Is Off To The Races

Prime Day may be over, but the sale mania is not going away anytime soon. Here are the deals for which you should be on the lookout!

This year has been an incomparable phenomenon for online sales, and Prime Day 2020 is no exception. Exclusive for Amazon Prime members, the platform offers 66 hours from October 13 to October 14 of 1 million special discounts on certain items. Here is a  closer look at the best offers and what Black Friday items you should be prepared to add to your cart.

Prime Day has left behind a record of the two biggest days on sales ever for small & medium businesses in Amazon’s stores worldwide. With this, it is expected that Black Friday will be just as insane and arrive sooner, to last longer. When should you get your cart ready? Usually right after Thanksgiving Day, but this year it shouldn’t come as a surprise if we get discount season and price guarantees to expand together with Holiday Shopping Season discounts. It’s important to remember this year you should be on the lookout for low inventory and shipping delays items and start shopping as early as the sales begin. Our recommendation is to make a list of gifts or things that you want and look up their usual price so that you can press purchase as soon as you see lower prices on the sales.

Now, what should you be on the lookout for?

Smart home devices and electronics overall are the biggest sellers and most significant items that’ll be up for grabs. One of the confirmed discounts was $100 off most home electronic gadgets, 40% on Panasonic cameras, and more on Prime Day. The pandemic has forced remote methodologies of learning and working on most of us, which has overworked our domestic and everyday electronic devices. Even more so,  you should especially keep in mind the favorite artifacts sold at Prime Days like the iRobot Roomba, Shark vacuums, Instant Pots, televisions, cellphones, and laptops. Anyhow, also keep in mind that deals will be more competitive on laptops on Black Friday and Cyber Monday than they were on Prime Day. Before the November Black Friday sales, you shouldn’t make any big purchases in items like the mentioned above. To take an example, retail experts say that Fire edition TVs will be offered to start at $80. On the other hand, it may be better if you look into places like Walmart (who’s big save event was held from October 11 to October 15), GameStop, Best Buy, or Target for electronics like videogames and game consoles since Amazon will prioritize to discount items of their branding and small businesses.

Ok, but what about the sales in non-electronic items?

Well, for things like clothing, waiting until after thanksgiving maybe the best option, and for items like toys, you should be prepared to shop in the ten days leading up to the holidays, always keeping in mind the shipping and low stock possibilities.

Be ready and expect a deal mania for Black Friday.

This year the holiday shopping season will last approximately 75 days, so do your research on what you need to get a good deal for and try your best not to impulse buy. Now get your alarm ready for November’s Black Friday and set it for Friday, November 27, and just like in Prime Day, the best deals may come after midnight, so you may want to jump onto your computer after putting the kids to bed.
