The Prime Early Access Sale (which many called Amazon’s second Prime Day or October Prime Day) is officially over. While the lightning deals may have run out of electricity, there are still plenty of other markdowns across all categories, from robot vacuums to earbuds to furniture for you to browse. And it’s an excellent chance to get a head start on holiday shopping before the Black Friday rush begins.
The blowout two-day event started at midnight PDT on October 11 and ended last night, October 12, at 11:59 p.m. PDT. This massive savings event was meant to serve as the unofficial kickoff to this year’s holiday sales so you could stock up on giftable items for less.

Is There Another Prime Day 2022?
The Prime Early Access Sale was a two-day sale on Amazon that started Tuesday October 11 and ended Wednesday October 12. While the sale is not officially referred to as a Prime Day (which happened in July), many shoppers have been calling it “October Prime Day” or “second Prime Day” due to its similarities—limited deals on millions of products across all categories.
When Is The Second Amazon Prime Day?
The Prime Early Access Sale kicked off at midnight PDT/3:00 a.m. EDT on October 11 and ended at 11:59 p.m. PDT/2:59 a.m. EDT on October 12. If you’re checking the calendar, that means the sale has officially ended, but the retail giant has already listed plenty of worthwhile holiday deals on its site.
What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day started in July of 2015 as a one-day sale event intended to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. It has since morphed into an annual two-day affair in which Amazon offers major discounts across all of its product categories. And with this year’s Prime Early Access Sale, we wouldn’t be surprised if the e-tailer starts holding bi-annual Prime events going forward.
How Many Times A Year Is Prime Day?
Technically, Prime Day only happens once a year. But this year, Amazon ran a second Prime Day-like sale just in time to kickstart the holiday shopping season. Time will tell whether this is a special year or the beginning of a series of bi-annual sales going forward.
Do You Need A Prime Membership To Shop Prime Early Access Deals?
Yes—in order to take advantage of most Prime Early Access deals, you’ll have to be an Amazon Prime member. If you’ve never had Amazon Prime before, you can start with a 30-day free trial. After the trial is over, membership costs $139 for a full year or $14.99 per month. If you’re a college student, you can get a 6-month free trial followed by a discounted rate of $7.49 per month for as long as you’re in school.
If you’re not already a member, here’s everything you need to know about how to sign up to enjoy Prime benefits (including ways to get a Prime membership for free or at a discount).
