After months of speculation, Amazon has confirmed that it’s holding a second two-day sale this year in the form of the Prime Early Access Sale. Like the Prime Day deals, it will feature a range of deals exclusively for Amazon Prime Day members. It will be held on October 11 and 12.

The idea is that this will give Prime members a chance to start their holiday shopping early with hundreds of thousands of deals. Although we don’t know the exact prices yet, the sale will feature a wide range of popular brands and items.

Amazon presents a Top 100 list of some of the most popular and trending items of the season. New deals from the list will be revealed during the event with big savings promised on electronics, fashion, home, kitchen, pet, toys and devices on Amazon.

IN press releasemust-have brands like Peloton, New Balance, Samsung, Hasbro, iRobot, KitchenAid and LEGO are mentioned as being featured among the many holiday deals we’ll see.

Amazon has also promised that you’ll be able to save up to 80% off select Fire TV smart TVs, which could mean we’re seeing some significant price cuts like we did during Prime Day earlier this year.

As always with Prime-related sales, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the exclusive sale. You can sign up for a 30-day free trial today and you’ll still be eligible to check out the deals being offered as part of the Prime Day Early Access Sale on October 11th and 12th.

Alternatively, if you were previously an Amazon Prime member, the service costs $15 per month, which may be worth it given some of the savings that are often part of Prime Day events.

Prime membership gives you exclusive access to the sale, but also gets you a year’s free Grubhub+ membership, access to Prime Video, ad-free music streaming through Prime Music, and free shipping (including same-day shipping on select items) on thousands of items at Amazon.

In the run-up to the big event, you can also get some holiday shopping inspiration thanks to new gift guides with holiday toy list and home gift guide checking.

We’ll be sure to bring you all the latest deals from the October Amazon Prime Early Access sale.
