Oh, Canada, Amazon's massive two-day sale is unfortunately delayed! While the annual Prime Day sale is taking place on June 21 and 22 in the US and other countries, Canada is being left out of all the exclusive savings for the time being. Prime Day is generally a great opportunity to snag low prices worthy of Black Friday, though you need an Amazon Prime membership if you hope to take advantage of the discounts being offered during the sale. From Amazon Echo speakers and Fire TV Edition smart TVs to laptops, gaming accessories, furniture, fashion, and more, Prime Day is unleashing deals in nearly every category on the site.

There's still no word on when Amazon Canada will hold its Prime Day sale, though we expect it should occur sometime before the end of October. Of course, that doesn't mean Canadians won't see any discounts at all until then. Prime-exclusive deals are available throughout the year and many become available in the weeks prior to Prime Day. We'll be sure to share any early Prime Day Canada deals below that you should know about.

If you're not an Amazon Prime member already, there's still a way you can shop the sale without shelling out for a Prime membership. Just start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab), and you'll score all the same benefits that a regular Prime member receives, from access to the Prime Day sale to free two-day shipping, the Prime Video streaming service, and much more.

When is Prime Day 2020?

While it usually takes place during the summer, this year's Prime Day is scheduled for October 13 and 14. However, we're already seeing some deals go live early! Most of the discounts are exclusively available to Amazon Prime members, though, of course, you can start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to gain access to any of the deals you're interested in.

When do Prime Day deals start?

Now! Though technically Prime Day doesn't begin until midnight PT on October 13, we're already seeing early offers go live at Amazon, both on Amazon devices and products by other brands. It's officially time to start Prime Day shopping!

Should you shop Prime Day 2020 deals or wait for Black Friday 2020?

Since Black Friday is taking place so close to Prime Day this year, we're expecting Amazon to really go all out once the sale begins. If the store wants to entice shoppers to start their holiday shopping in October rather than November, they have to offer better prices than what we expect to see on Black Friday. Then again, buying early is always a better idea than buying later in the year, no matter the current price. You never know when the item you're planning to buy might become hard to buy or back-ordered, so it's generally not recommended to wait when it comes to these end-of-the-year sales.
