All you need to know about Prime Early Access Sale 2022
When is the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale 2022?
Amazon has confirmed that the Prime Early Access Sale will begin on Tuesday October 11 at midnight Pacific Time in the US, which is 8am in the UK, and run for 48 hours. This means it will end at 11.59pm (PT) or 7:59am (BST) on Thursday October 13.
What will be on sale for the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale?
If it's anything like Prime Day, as Amazon sells such a broad range of products, you're almost guaranteed an equally wide range of deals over the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. We assume there will be everything from iPads to phones to mattresses to colouring pencils. You'll find all the best deals right here.
Of course, historically, the biggest savings from Amazon are always on the Amazon devices. Makes sense really, as they can set the discounts on their own products, as no other retailer can.
Is Prime free during the Prime Early Access Sale?
Amazon Prime isn't exactly free on the Prime Early Access Sale. In order to take advantage of Prime Early Access Sale offers, you'll need to be a Prime member. But the good news is you can sign up to Amazon's no strings attached 30-day free Amazon Prime trial (opens in new tab) to see if the service is right for you. Alternatively, you can hold off signing up until nearer the event, that way you can get all the best deals and then cancel before your trial period is up without charge (should you not want to stay around and enjoy all the benefits of a Prime membership).
