Amazon Prime Day 2020 is a big deal in more ways than one. On Oct. 13 and 14, you can save hundreds of dollars on office items. Whether your team on qq is working remotely or returning to the office, here are 10 items you should purchase.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive, two-day shopping event for Amazon Prime members. Amazon Prime Day usually happens in July, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Prime Day was pushed back to Oct. 13 and 14.
On Prime Day, small business owners can take advantage of two-day shipping, same-day delivery (in select metro area) and other rewards. There will also be plenty of price slashing, too, especially on Amazon items, including Fire TV, Kindle e-readers and Amazon Echo devices.
This year, Amazon is also offering incentives to small businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19. Buyers who spend $10 on select small business products receive $10 in Amazon credit. Although money is still tight for many small businesses, a chance to buy necessities for your company can make a world of difference in this new workplace climate. To take advantage of this two-day sales event, have the Amazon app handy, and make sure you’re an Amazon Prime member first.
1. HP 24mh FHD 23.8-inch monitor
For employees who have been working from home for the past several months and left their digital setup behind in the office, the HP 24mh FHD 23.8-inch monitor is an affordable monitor. It has a low blue light mode, which puts less strain on the eyes, and it has built-in speakers and panoramic viewing.
2. FEZIBO stand-up desk converter
Hunching over one’s kitchen table isn’t just bad for one’s back, but it’s also bad for one’s health. A standing desk, however, not only reduces back strain, it can lower the risk of obesity and heart disease. Many standing desks cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, but this FEZIBO standing desk fits many small business budgets at under $150. It’s a great way to help employees stay organized and healthy in a small way.
3. AmazonBasics leather-padded, ergonomic, adjustable desk chair
What’s a desk without a chair? Sure, employees can use what they have around their homes, but this AmazonBasics office chair supports both one’s back and behind throughout an 8-hour workday. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, remote employees are working 48.5 minutes longer each day, and there’s been a 13% uptick in meetings. When the increased hours that many are putting in, a cushy office chair with an adjustable padded seat is just what employees need.
