Amazon Prime Day 2: Prime Early Access Sale date, best deals

Lately, Amazon made an announcement: there will be a second Amazon Prime Day. The retailer calls it the Prime Early Access Day, but it's pretty much the same as the usual Amazon Prime Day held in July: good deals on electronics, low prices, and a large selection of items. Here's what you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 1 and 2!

When is the Second Amazon Prime Day?

The fall Prime Day will start at 3 AM (EDT) on October 11 and will last till October 13, 2:59 AM (EDT). This Prime Early Access Sale is this year's premiere and an addition to the traditional Amazon Prime Day event that runs every July since 2015. During the Second Amazon Prime Day, you will also have 48 hours to make the most out of Amazon deals. This could be a solution to prepare for upcoming holidays and purchase gifts for cheaper prices. The list of the best deals will be released on the day of the event, October 11. 

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a retail “holiday” created by Amazon in 2015, that runs in July for only 48 hours. Amazon created this holiday to compete with Black Friday and offer customers the biggest sales of the year. Prices are cut across the site, for example in the tech, beauty, home, and kitchen categories. Prime Day has so far been very successful for Amazon with sales exceeding those on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. From this year on, the e-tailer might make the event bi-annual, but we'll see.
