When is Amazon Prime Day 2020? It'll likely be delayed due to coronavirus demands, reports say
Expect Amazon Prime Day, also known as Black Friday in July, to be postponed because of the coronavirus.
The retail giant started its annual summer sale in 2015 as a way to reward members of its Prime subscription. The big sale has been held annually in July.
But according to internal meeting notes acquired by media outlets including USA TODAY and Vice News, the company's general counsel David Zapolsky says "Prime Day will be pushed off at least until August."
Amazon officials reached for comment Saturday declined to comment.
Sales from the 2019 Prime Day event held in mid-July were higher than sales during 2018's Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. Members worldwide purchased 175 million items during the two-day sale available only to subscribers of Amazon's Prime service, the company said.
But while Prime Day is expected to be delayed, there could be some discounted Amazon devices.
