Here are some of the top deals for Amazon Prime Day 2020

HOUSTON, Texas -- Consider this a Pre-Black Friday event, giving you a chance to get a head start on the Holidays.

Amazon is holding its annual Prime Day on Oct. 13 and 14 this year, after the pandemic forced it to postpone the sales event from July. It's the first time Prime Day is being held in the fall, and Amazon is positioning it as a way to get people to start their holiday shopping.

PC Magazine says this year will be different because instead of buying for themselves, customers are saying they will buy gifts for others.

The top searched items include streaming devices, tablets and e-readers.

You can find discounts now, including a 55 inch 4K TV for almost half of its original price and mini security cameras for $25.

One thing that is getting a lot of attention right now is wearable tech.

Amazon already has Apple watches on sale ahead of Prime Day, so the savings on those items could be extreme.

And if you want to save big, look for wearable items that are one step down from the newly released items.

"Because frequently, there is such a minor difference between the Apple Watch Series 6 out now and a watch that came out earlier," said Chandra Steele of PC Magazine. "I'd say look to the ones that are like a category below, see if you are comfortable with those features because those are probably going to be your deepest discounts."

A new report from the Better Business Bureau warns about con artists who could steal personal information by posing as Amazon employee ahead of Prime Day.



One of the problems with Prime Day is figuring out the best deal.

Fortunately, there are apps for that.

About a half dozen apps can guide you through the process and take a look at the deals already announced.
