Billed as sort of like a second “Prime Day,” the new deals event takes place over two days, from October 11 to 12, 2022.
Will There Be a Second Amazon Prime Day This Year?
The first Amazon Prime Day 2022 kicked off July 12 and ran through the end of July 13. Aside from a slight scheduling change (due to Covid) in 2020, Amazon Prime Day dates have always been in the middle of summer, and this year’s Prime Day date was no differe
The second Amazon Prime Day, dubbed the “Amazon Prime Early Access Sale” is taking place on Tuesday, October 11 and Wednesday, October 12.
Similar to previous years, the second Prime Day will take place over two days once again this year, giving shoppers 48 hours to score a deal and discount online.
Do You Need to be an Amazon Prime Member to Shop the Deals?
The short answer is yes. While Amazon has a Daily Deals page that offers discounts and sales to anyone shopping on the site, the best Prime Day deals are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime members and the new Prime Day event is no different. There are a ton of other benefits to an Amazon Prime membership, which we’ve rounded up here.
If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can still get a 30-day free trial right now which will get you access to all the Prime Day and Prime Early Access Sale deals.
