By Sian Babish

Prime Day 2020 falls on Oct. 13 and 14, so the best deals of the year are here. It’s the time to gear up for the bulk of your holiday shopping, as you’ll likely see lower prices during Prime Day than even Black Friday or Cyber Monday — and ordering early means everything is more likely to arrive in time in a year of ongoing shipping delays. 

Here are the best deals from Amazon's two-day sales event.
