Buyers, get ready for another sales event. Amazon just announced the Prime Early Access Sale after months of rumors and last week’s leak. The retailer has confirmed in a press release that the two-day sale will take place from October 11-12 and – similar to its Prime Day Summer Bonanza – will feature a range of deals exclusive to Amazon Prime members.
Amazon is offering the Prime Early Access Sale to kick off the holiday shopping season with hundreds of thousands of deals set to go live within 48 hours. Also taking place six weeks before Black Friday 2022, it’s an opportunity to diversify your seasonal spending during a time of high inflation and the ongoing credit crunch.
Brands set to be featured include Shark, Lego, KitchenAid and Samsung, while Amazon has also promised that there will be up to 80% off select Fire TV smart TVs, as well as additional savings on a range of Alexa-enabled devices will give. That’s largely in line with what we’d expect from a Prime Day 2-style sale. So prepare to see the lowest-ever prices for popular Amazon devices again. Of course, we’ll be here to share the best deals in this Amazon sale at TechRadar.
You don’t have to wait until October 11 for the deals, though, because starting today, Prime members can try Amazon Music Unlimited free for four months (opens in new tab). The service enables ad-free streaming of 90 million songs and millions of podcast episodes. Meanwhile, those in the US can get an Echo Dot (3rd gen) and a month of Music Unlimited for just $0.99 (opens in new tab).
However, remember that these deals are only available to Amazon Prime members. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can currently get a one-month free trial of Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) participate in the sale. Plus you get all the other Amazon Prime benefits like Free Shipping, Prime Video, Prime Reading, Prime Gaming, Grocery Deliveries, Amazon Household and more.

The Prime Early Access Sale runs October 11-12 in 15 countries including Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom the USA .
