Amazon is having a second sale this fall exclusively for Prime members as it did last year, and though we knew it was happening in October, we didn’t yet have an exact date. Now, Amazon has announced that the sale will happen on October 11 and 12, and even gave it a new name: Prime Big Deal Days.
As ever, Prime Day gives members access to thousands of deals, so many folks wait for the sale to get the best possible deals on pricey products like laptops, phones, memory cards, cameras and more. Knowing that, Amazon uses the event as a way to boost sales and, more importantly, Prime subscriber numbers. At the same time, some select deals are available to non-Prime members as well.
Amazon detailed a few early deals on Amazon devices and more. You can save up to 65 per cent on a three-pack of eero Pro Mesh Wi-Fi, select Fire TV devices, Kindles and more. Amazon is promising a $15 credit to Prime members who download its Photos app and upload their first photo, between now and October 7. You’ll also find deals on Prime Video, a longer free trial of Amazon Music and more.
Last year’s October Prime Day saw a plethora of deals on devices ranging from Sony’s WH-1000XM5 ANC headphones to the MacBook Air to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 to Roomba 694 robot vacuum. You might not see quite as many deals as on the main Prime Day (held this year on July 11 and 12), but I was glad I waited to purchase items like memory cards and storage. It’s also a good way to grab some Christmas presents cheap and avoid the rush.
Besides electronics, the sale is likely to cover clothes, shoes, household items, appliances. If you’re looking for some savings, it’s best to get ready by making lists and bookmarking a price tracker. For more on how to prepare for Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days, check out our post on the subject.
