ORIGINAL STORY FROM 9/23/2020
Amazon’s Prime Day shopping event usually takes place in the summer but was postponed due to COVID-19. Now the rescheduled dates have been leaked.
According to an internal email seen by The Verge, the 2020 shopping event will now be October 13 and 14. The days will be officially announced on September 27.
The outlet states, “In a separate internal email, Amazon warehouse workers were told no new vacation requests would be accepted between October 13th and October 20th, which suggests that the company needs all hands on deck for Prime Day.”
Of course, Amazon would not confirm or deny to The Verge if this information was accurate. “Stay tuned for more details on Prime Day,” said a spokesperson. They also added that customers could ask Alexa devices to keep them updated about Prime Day.
The Verge also pointed out that Amazon previously confirmed that Prime Day would be in Q4, which means sometime after October 1.
