Best Amazon Prime Day US deals (2020): what to expect
22 September 2020

You might be wondering where Amazon Prime Day 2020 is. Given the event usually takes place in July, this year Amazon is doing things a little differently.

While we haven't had confirmation of an official date, Amazon Prime Day 2020 could well be happening soon, with many a rumour circling a mid-October event.

Until Amazon announces something officially, here we look back at some fo the best US bargains that took place last year.

Having seen the discount bonanza from both sides of the pond, Amazon Prime Day in the US seemed to trump what was going on in the UK.

From Chromebooks to cut-price PS4s and some fantastic phone discounts, there were a lot of deals out there - too many, in fact, for any normal human to get through.

That's where Shortlist came in. We did what we've did best and shortlisted the best Amazon Prime US deals we saw.

The following products are some of the best Amazon Prime Day US deals we found last year (note: none of these deals are available now).
