(CBS NEWSPATH)-This year is also the time. Amazon is back faster than ever with a summer cyber sale. Prime Day is today and Tuesday.
“I’m very excited to bring Prime Day back to the summer season,” said Amazon spokeswoman Kate Scarpa. Last year, Amazon postponed Prime Day until October due to a pandemic. At that time, pointing and clicking became the main shopping method. People are stepping back into physical stores, but Amazon is seducing Prime members by hosting new online offers. Scarpa said: “This year we have more than 2 million deals for Prime members, which is more than ever on Prime Day.
According to Adobe Analytics, 58% of consumers plan to shop online during Prime Day. 31% expect to spend money from stimulus checks. Adobe Analytics believes Amazon recorded $ 10.4 billion in sales during last year’s Prime Day.
“What Amazon has managed to do is create a whole new holiday,” said Dan Ackerman, a CNET tech expert. It’s not just Amazon. Several retailers, including Target and Wal-Mart, are also currently offering sales for competition, Ackerman said. “Many stores put a lot of emphasis on Chromebooks, laptops, smart home speakers, etc., but there’s also a lot of fashion, clothing, and kitchen utensils.”
Ackerman’s Advice: There are so many deals that it’s good to have a game plan. “I want to make a little list, look for specific items, and compare prices between stores,” he says.
Amazon shoppers need to find what they’re looking for until Tuesday night.
