Amazon has finally released the dates for Prime Day after it was pushed back this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The huge two-day savings event is taking place October 13 and 14, 2020. If the full 48 hours of savings are anything like last year, you can expect some incredible deals on everything from TVs to beauty essentials. And, of course, there will likely be huge price drops on Amazon’s own devices, too. 

Along with a shifted date, there’s one other new detail to make note of for this year’s Prime Day: You have the chance to get a $10 spending credit before it even begins. 

Here’s how it works: Spend $10 at a select small business storefront any time now through October 12 and you’ll get $10 to use on Prime Day. This extra discount is for Prime members only, so if you don’t have a membership yet, now’s the time to sign up (or at least start your 30-day free trial). 

Now, these small businesses aren’t niche boutiques filled with random items you’ll never use. Instead, they’re stocked to the brim with everyday goods like face masks, cleaning towels, and detangling dog brushes. You could even opt to shop for your weekly grocery essentials (that you’d be buying anyway), and in turn get money to spend a few weeks from now.

Once you shop from a small business on your Amazon Prime account, you’ll get an email about the credit. Then, the $10 offer will apply automatically to the first Prime Day purchase you make. You can even order something on your Alexa during the sale event, and the smart device will include the savings in the checkout process. (Click here to see all of the
