Amazon is moving "Prime Day" to September. It's normally held in July.
The company decided to move the two-day annual sales event because the coronavirus pandemic has put financial strain on a lot of Americans. It's also caused shortages and shipping delays.
So many people turned to Amazon for essential items during the crisis that warehouse stocks were depleted. And the company had to put a hold on shipping non-essential items, to meet the need.
That's gotten better, but if you've tried to order anything recently, you'll get the notice to expect delays. And without 1 or 2 day shipping, Amazon can't have a successful Prime Day.
Last year Amazon reportedly sold about six-billion-dollars during Prime Day.
A new date has not been set... just a target of September.
