Amazon Prime Early Access Sale: Key Things to Know
- You need an Amazon Prime membership in order to shop for Prime Early Access Sale deals. However, if you're new to Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and then, in theory, cancel before 30 days are up. After that, it's $14.99 per month or $139 for a full year.
- Students get a better deal on Prime memberships. If you're enrolled in school, you can get your Amazon Prime student membership for 50% off the regular price and pay only $7.49 per month. And that's after a free six-month trial!
- The Prime Early Access Sale will be in mid-October. It will begin at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m. ET) on Tuesday, October 11, and end at 11:59 p.m. PT (2:59 a.m. ET) on Wednesday, October 12.
- Deals begin in advance of the 48-hour sale. Early Deals have begun trickling in, offering savings on Amazon devices, TVs, small appliances, vacuum cleaners, furniture, mattresses and more. However, the official day-of deals tend to be even better.
- Other benefits also begin in advance. Right now, you can explore Holiday Gift Guides, try Amazon Music Unlimited for four months free (new users only), get a free Grubhub+ membership for one year, and nab deals on titles to buy or rent on Prime Video.
- During the actual event, deals may go quickly. Similar to Lightning Deals, some Prime Early Access Sale deals will expire after a few hours (sometimes longer), or they may reach their order maximum and the product may effectively sell out. So, while there's no need to fret, you may not be able to sit for a long period of time on a particular deal if you want it. However, some other deals may quietly extend beyond the Prime Early Access Sale.
If you're ready to save while shopping during Oct. 11-12 for the Prime Early Access Sale, here are some of the best deals to get you started:
