The Prime Early Access Sale (also known informally as Prime Day 2) is a new two-day shopping event for those who can’t wait until Black Friday deals and want to get an even earlier jump on holiday gift shopping. It will take place for the first time on Tuesday, October 11 and Wednesday October 12, starting at 12 AM PDT (3 AM EST) on the 11th and run through the 12th.

Just like the original Prime Day in July, sales will only be available only to Amazon Prime members and hundreds of thousands of deals many of which will be announced over the course of the 48 hour event. New deals will be dropped every 30 minutes during select periods.

Building on the success of their annual Prime Day in July, the sale was carefully placed on the calendar between Prime Day and Black Friday. It was announced on September 26, 2022 by Amazon Canada.

You can become a member of Amazon Prime, or simply start a 30-day free trial which is available to new members.
