This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

If you’re wondering whether to buy your holiday gear during Amazon’s Prime Day next week or wait until Black Friday, I have a simple answer for you: Buy early.

Prime Day, which is usually held in July, has become a major part of the retail calendar, with dozens of major stores joining in the sale to snag customers. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Amazon delayed the event to Oct. 13-14 this year, making Prime Day more of an unofficial start to the holiday shopping season than its typical role as a kind of Christmas in July.

Although Prime Day has not yet officially arrived, some early Prime Day deals have already begun to roll in. The event officially starts on October 13, but if you’re in the market for something and see a great deal, go ahead and snag it. Products are likely to sell out quickly, especially on the really great Prime Day smart home deals.

Amazon Prime Day Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One Deals: What We Expect To See

It’s shaping up to be an even busier fall then usual, with both Amazon Prime Day 2020 and the launch of the Xbox Series X and S happening within a month of each other. Of course, we won’t see any deals on the next-gen consoles–we doubt they’ll even be available to purchase–but there are still a lot of games and accessories that will work with the new consoles, and Prime Day is the perfect time to stock up before your Xbox Series X or S arrives. 2020 has been full of awesome deals on all things Xbox, and we expect Prime Day to be no different.

Amazon Prime Day lasts 48 hours and kicks off on Tuesday, October 13, at midnight PT / 3 AM ET. Amazon has already set some early Prime Day deals live, which consist of 4K TVs, smart home devices, and other tech gadgets. Unfortunately, you

Andy Boxall/DigitalTrends

If you are looking to take advantage of Prime Day deals to purchase a premium tablet, then you’re in luck. It’s rare to see discounts for newly released Apple products, but they do happen every once in a while. A perfect example is this early Prime Day deal for the Wi-Fi model of the 11-inch, 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad Pro. The offer, which joins the list of Prime Day iPad deals ahead of the October 13-14 event, cuts $50 off the tablet’s price to take it down to $750 from $800.

Amazon has kicked off another small batch of early Prime Day deals ahead of the main event on October 13.

With only one week left to go until Amazon Prime Day 2020 officially begins, the company is building hype with a batch of early Prime Day 2020 deals to help you start saving right now.

This is the second week of early Prime Day deals. Last week, Amazon discounted a 4K TV, the Echo Dot, and the Fire TV Recast.
