Prime Early Access Sale: Everything you need to know about Prime Day 2 in the US

(Pocket-lint) – The Prime Day sales have been and gone, but Prime discounts are coming back with the Prime Early Access Sales – and we’re expecting a range of deals and discounts across your favorite gadgets and devices. 

Many are calling this Prime Day 2, as Amazon looks to offer discounts well in advance of Black Friday, so you can spread the cost of shopping for the holiday period.

We’re going to be covering the best discounts and deals for Prime Early Access for you right here, with navigation links to help you jump to the section that you’re most interested in. As the sales haven’t started yet, we’re still listing some of the deals from Prime Day 2022 so you know what to expect.

When is the Prime Early Access Sale?

Prime Early Access starts Tuesday October 11 and ends on Wednesday October 12. It’s a 48-hour sales event, but Amazon has already started discounting some devices – and is offering 4-months free Amazon Music Unlimited to new Prime members.

Of course, you need to be a Prime Member to benefit from these sales. Amazon offers a 30-day trial for Prime, so you can experience all the benefits of the service.

First arriving in 2015, and last being held in July in 2022, Prime Day is now a firm fixture in the sales calendar from Amazon – and these new Prime sales only expand the discount opportunities.

Amazon Prime Day 2022 tips and tricks

We highly recommend reading our Amazon shopping guide here if you want to master Amazon and learn all about its hidden features.

Get an Amazon Prime free trial to get the deals

Amazon Prime costs $119 a year. You can, however, sign up for a free 30-day trial to get the deals. A neat trick is that you are fully entitled to cancel your Amazon Prime subscription after once you’ve got your shopping deal.

Amazon Alexa

If you ask an Alexa-enabled device, such as an Echo or Echo Dot, “Alexa, what are your deals?”, Alexa will tell you some deals. In previous years, access to Prime Day deals has come hours earlier – as well as access to exclusive bargains – through Alexa.

To order something, say, “Alexa, what are your deals” followed by “Alexa, add [the item] to my cart. ” Alexa will confirm this, but if you want, you can set up a 4-digit voice shopping pin with the Alexa app to prevent unintended purchases.

Deals of the day and Lighting deals

On Prime Day the sales kick into high gear and that often includes “Lightning Deals,” which are limited time and sometimes end in minutes. To stay on top of everything, use Amazon’s app, where you can view many deals 24 hours in advance and sign up for alerts.

Try Amazon Assistant

Amazon Assistant is a browser plugin for Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, and Edge. It’s free and easy to install. With it, you can watch for product comparisons that save time and money, access shortcuts to popular Amazon hubs right in your browser, and get notified when deals that you’re watching go live with notifications. It also lets you get information about orders and deliveries.

Clip coupons on Amazon

Amazon.com has coupons. There’s an entire section of Amazon that’s dedicated to coupons. You can find coupons for electronics, pet supplies, toys, and other items. No scissors or physical coupons required. To get started with Amazon coupons, go to Amazon.com, then click on “Today’s Deals. ” In the menu of subitems, click on “Coupons.” You can also use this direct link.

You can browse the most popular coupons, and when you find an item that interests you, you can either click on the “Clip this coupon” or click on the item to learn more about it. Clicking on the item automatically clips the coupon for you, too. When you’re all done shopping, go to your cart and check out like normal. In the cart details, you will see the coupon amounts deducted from your total.

Try CamelCamelCamel

If you want to check a deal’s price against what Amazon has charged in the past, try CamelCamelCamel. It’s a free price tracker that monitors millions of products and alerts you when prices drop so that you can decide if and when to buy.
