What is Amazon Prime Day? Prime Day is a special 2-day deals event on Amazon. It’s described as 2 days of “epic deals.”
When is Amazon Prime Day in 2020? Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon’s Prime Day has been pushed back 3 months from July to October, and has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 13th and Wednesday, October 14th.
(Oct 13th-14th, 2020)
What Tool Deals Might we See? For prior Amazon Prime Day sales events, we’ve seen deals on select on Bosch cordless power tools, Dewalt cordless power tools, Wera hand tools, Makita tools, and some other brands. Some of these tool deals are bound to be repeated this year for the 2020 sale.
For example, there has been a 20% deal on select Wera hand tools in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Unless there are strong reasons against it (such as tariffs driving up prices), it’s possible and maybe even likely we’ll see a similar promo this year.
Amazon has expanded their selection of Craftsman hand and power tools in 2019, and have only been adding more since then. I’ve been seeing a rise in Amazon-Craftsman co-branded banner ads as I search the web. Another Craftsman deal seems likely, in addition to the typical Dewalt deals and promos we can reasonably expect to see.
It’s difficult to make any specific predictions, as Amazon does tend to change things up every now and then, as we’ve seen with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Still, I’d predict that we might see a Bosch cordless deal – maybe the 18V FlexiClick kit? – and maybe the Wera 20% off select hand tools promo.
