With the Prime Early Access Sale coming this 11-12 October, we're expecting some decent Prime Early Access Sale deals on Amazon devices. And for good reason. During Amazon Prime Day, Amazon device deals are amongst the best on offer, and we think this brand new Prime Early Access Sale is not going to be any different.
Amazon devices are some of the most popular smart devices in the world, and that's not just because of their great features and easy availability. It's also because you'll often find decent deals on Amazon devices such as the Echo, Fire and Kindle. Obviously, the usual time for such Amazon device deals is Amazon Prime Day (which happened in July this year) – but there are rumours that there will be another Amazon-specific retail event on the horizon, so that's why we've put this page together.
A quick scroll down this page and you'll see that there are currently some decent deals on various Amazon devices – and that's before the Prime Early Access Sale Amazon Device deals have officially started. Some are not as good as we saw in Prime Day, and there's the odd one that's actually better! However, we do expect the best deals to come up later this year, is indeed there is a second Amazon retail event, as rumoured.
If you want to find out more about the rumours, and have a look at a breakdown of the best deals in this July's Amazon Prime Day, check out our Amazon Prime Day deals page. We've also got a pretty good roundup of the best Apple Prime Day deals too.
What is the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale and when is it?
The Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is Amazon's new autumn retail event, and is brand new for 2022. The retail giant is pretty keen to popularise its name, but it's already being know as Prime Day 2. It is, after all, a deals event aimed at Amazon Prime members!
The Amazon Prime Early Access sale will begin on Tuesday 11 October at midnight Pacific Time in the US (8am in the UK), and will run for 48 hours, ending at 11.59pm (PT) / 7:59am (BST) on Thursday 13 October. It's worth keeping an eye on the deals below in the days leading up to the event.
Will there be Amazon device deals this Prime Early Access Sale?
We think there will be, but of course there is no way of knowing for sure. If previous Amazon Prime Day events are anything to go by, then there probably will be heavily discounted deals on Amazon devices. The fact that these are devices made by Amazon, and this is an Amazon retail event would suggest that there will be some brilliant discounts to be had. We even noticed some decent deals on Amazon devices to non-Prime members last Prime Day, so if you want a new Kindle Fire or Amazon Echo, October 11-12 seems like a good time to grab one at a discount price.
