Shopping is always fun when you get something you want in the price you want.  On regular days, it's rare for shoppers to find the products they want at a discounted price. But, if you are patient enough to wait for some certain days in the calendar, then you might be in luck. 

One of the biggest shopping days is Amazon  (AMZN) - Get, Inc. Report Prime Day. The online retail giant started Amazon Prime Day for its Prime customers in 2015. 

This year, the company brought in about $10.4 billion in sales, over a two-day period between October 13 and October 14. Usually, Prime Day falls on a day sometime in July but this year, it was postponed to October due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are other big shopping days in the U.S. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day and Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving.

It's a common scene in the U.S. to see people lining up in front of the stores the night before Black Friday. Stores often offer heavy discounts for customers on everything from appliances to electronics.

Cyber Monday is a fairly new concept that started in 2005. Retailers started this to encourage people to shop online. 

Alibaba's  (BABA) - Get Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Report Single Day is another big shopping event, which falls on November 11.  It’s a celebration started by single Chinese university students in 1993. Chinese entrepreneur Jack Ma’s Alibaba adopted Singles Day as its annual event in 2009.

This year, the Chinese online retailer hit a record-high of $75 billion in total sales
