Amazon created its own day of online shopping deals called Prime Day five years ago. It was a sale day aimed at attracting new Prime members and expanding summer purchases (175 million items were sold in 2019). However, with the arrival of COVID-19 , the online retail giant decided to delay this year's Prime Day version until fall.

Do you want to take advantage of the offers and promotions of banks on Amazon Prime Day Mexico ? We give you the details of this shopping day:

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

The 2020 Amazon Prime Day begins this October 13 at 12:00 a.m. and ends on October 14 at 11:59 p.m. (Central Mexico time) for Prime members in the Republic of Mexico. It will also be active in the United States, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Spain, Singapore, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, and for the first time this year, in Turkey and Brazil.

How do I buy on Prime Day?

Being Prime Day, you must be a member of the Prime subscription to get the best deals. If not, you can join for free for 30 days, after which you must pay 99 Mexican pesos per month. You can sign up here .

You can naturally log into through your laptop, but here are some options to consider as well.

The Amazon app: If you'll be out and about on Prime Day, download the Amazon app, log in, and you're ready to shop wherever you are.
Ask Alexa: Why move? The main idea behind Amazon's Echo devices is to sell you stuff, which is why Alexa is more than willing to help you add things to your cart. There might even be some exclusive Prime Day deals for the voice assistant, so be sure to ask Alexa what Amazon has for you.
