Amazon End of Summer Sale – T3's opinion
Amazon couldn't run its Prime Day super sale this summer and needed to delay it until October this year. And, while we certainly expect there to be great discounts and offers available then (as part of the wider Black Friday 2020 winter holiday sales that are taking place this year), for the products that would of been discounted, then the End of Summer Sale is the place to check out.
We've been saying for months now that this year deal hunters need to be active for far longer periods than past years, as deals are being spread out by retailers and many stellar discounts are dropping at unusual times. To bag the best bargains, it now isn't simply the case of waiting until Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday – you've got to be ready to pull the trigger at any time.
Also, as many shoppers will still not be thinking of bagging deals, competition for the End of Summer Sale offers will be considerable reduced, so we think it is currently a great destination to pick up tech and products for cheap.
