For the past several years, Amazon Prime Day has been held mid-July. Unsurprisingly, the retailer’s massive shopping holiday has had to be postponed this year due to the global pandemic. While shoppers have yet to hear of an official date for when Prime Day 2020 will take place, we’re expecting a fall date at this point.

However, after a little digging, we were still able to track down 10 amazing deals that rival the prices we typically see on Prime Day to tide us over.
