Amazon's Prime Day is officially kicking off on October 13 this year, and the two-day event is now less than 24 hours away, but there are already some Prime Day deals and other offers to be had.  We'll be digging through what's on offer to bring you the best bargains on everything from gaming laptops to PC peripherals.

Historically, Prime Day has been a summertime sale reserved specifically for members of its subscription-based Amazon Prime service. So yeah, you will need an Amazon Prime membership to get the most out of the event. 

In a normal year Prime Day kicks off in July with savings on a host of different kit, and yes, sometimes even PC gaming gear too. But this is no normal year, and so Bezos and Co. have delayed the two-day event until now.

Amazon's official dates for the sales event are Tuesday October 13 and Wednesday October 14, this year those are the magic Prime Days. But it's not all about Amazon though, as no-one likes to be left out of the deals fun, so expect a whole load of offers from other retailers around the same time. 

Indeed, some are already live right now, such as the Microsoft store deals.

October was about the last time Amazon could realistically hold its own event ahead of Black Friday 2020 and the great Black November consumergasm.

Should I wait for Black Friday 2020 instead?

Thankfully, Amazon Prime Day 2020 won't take up the entire of October and will just be a two-day event, but will you be better off waiting for Black Friday, or will Prime Day offer better deals on the products you want?

As an exclusive Prime Members-only sale you can expect that Amazon's own tech will be on offer with a heap of deals on Echo and Kindle hardware, but historically Prime Day has also seen a huge number of special offers on laptops too. 

There will likely be a lot of discounts on things like TVs and peripherals too. We don't expect there to be any big discounts on other PC goodies, though with new graphics cards and processors arriving at the tail end of this year, it is possible that last-gen PC components might see some price cuts.

You will need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of any of the deals on Prime Day 2020, which isn't necessarily the case around Black Friday, but it's often possible to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership with a 30-day free trial at any point. 

We'll be keeping an eye on what's going on around Prime Day, whenever Jeff does decide to unleash the really big deals, so be sure that if there are any Prime Day PC deals worth shouting about, we'll be doing it.
