It’s déjà vu all over again: While it seems like just yesterday that Amazon held its Prime Day sale event this past July, it’s coming back around. Amazon announced an October Prime Day, which will occur Oct. 10 and 11. Dubbed Prime Big Deal Days, this will be another chance to snap up some serious discounts! But you don’t have to wait, as early deals are already popping up daily. Here are some of the top ones to shop now.
Best early October Prime Day deals
We hope you’re as excited by this news as we are! While Prime Big Deal Days doesn’t technically start until Oct. 10 and 11, you can enjoy these savings at Amazon right now:
What is Prime Big Deal Days?
Following record sales from July’s Prime Day, this fall’s Prime Big Deal Days will give Amazon Prime members the chance to score some of the best prices of the year on everything from tech and home goods to clothing and beauty. You can expect steep discounts site-wide, even on items that rarely go on sale, including top-rated kitchen appliances, electronics and more. We’re betting that bargains on Amazon’s own devices (hello, Fire TVs) will be in the mi, too.
“Around 30% of shoppers begin their holiday shopping in October, so Amazon looked at that and took advantage of it,” said Phil Masiello, an e-commerce expert and founder of Crunchgrowth Revenue Acceleration Agency. “What Amazon is trying to do is to start the holiday shopping season and get a jump on Walmart and Target.”
When is October Prime Day?
Prime Big Deal Days will be held Oct. 10 and 11. Per Amazon, “We can’t wait to give our Prime members access to exclusive early savings this season.” You’ll be able to get a head start on your holiday shopping well before Black Friday! Deals drop at 3 a.m. (EDT) Tuesday, Oct. 10.
Who can save during Prime Day?
This year, shoppers in 19 countries will be able to get in on the savings action: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, the U.S. and the UK.
While some steals will be available to everyone, the very best deals are typically reserved for Amazon Prime members, so it’s a good idea to get signed up before the big day. Joining Prime is super simple and takes just minutes — you’ll start with a free 30-day trial to see how you like it. If you choose to continue your membership, you’ll pay $14.99/month. (Discounted memberships are available for students and others who qualify.)
Where do the deals happen?
Good old Amazon.com is where the party will be! These huge sales events can be overwhelming, but you can rest assured our Yahoo shopping editors will be scouring the site and rounding up the cream of the crop deals to save you time and ensure you’re getting the best prices. With new deals dropping as often as every 5 minutes during select periods, there will certainly be a lot of goodies to comb through!
Keep in mind that, while Prime Big Deal Days is an Amazon savings event, it’s likely to expand to other retailers. “Third-party sellers who sell through Amazon will also get in on the action since they know this sales event draws a lot of shoppers and offering a Prime Day deal can help attract buyers,” consumer and money-saving expert Andrea Woroch, tells Yahoo Life. “This is a good time to get some of your holiday shopping out of the way.”
There’s also the fact that U.S.-based Prime members can now utilize Buy with Prime, meaning you can shop exclusive Prime Big Deal Days offers beyond Amazon.com on select brands’ websites, including Wyze, KNOW Beauty, and more.
