The busiest shopping time of the year is just around the corner. But if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can now get a head start and avoid some of the chaos. The early shopping spree is possible thanks to the long-awaited news that a second Amazon Prime Day will become a reality.

This week, the online retailer confirmed rumors of a second Amazon Prime Day, which they dubbed Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale. It will run for 48 hours, from October 11-12. And it is exclusively available to Amazon Prime members.

So, if you have been waffling over whether you should become a Prime member, now might be a good time. Thankfully, you can peruse some of the sale items in advance. You may even discover some gems in the mix.

According to the announcement, the second Amazon Prime Day of the year will feature scorching deals on hundreds of thousands of items. However, if you are tired just by thinking about endlessly scrolling through all the pages, don’t worry. You can click on the Top 100 lists to find all the top sellers and hottest deals.

The vice president of Amazon Prime, Jamil Ghani, said, “We are so excited to help Prime members kick off the holiday season with Amazon’s new Prime Early Access Sale-an exclusive opportunity for members to get deep discounts on top brands we know they are looking for this time of year.” Some of the featured brands Ghani is referring to include iRobot, Samsung, Hasbro, and KitchenAid. Plus, shoppers will find great deals for the kids in their lives.

Among the highlights of the new Amazon Prime Day is the Toys We Love list. It is a comprehensive guide to help sort through the endless selection of children’s toys and gifts. And it’s great news for shoppers, offering the chance to land the most sought-after items before the holiday rush.

The savings don’t stop there, however. According to CNET, early Amazon Prime Day deals launched early. A few deals you’ll find include a free annual subscription to GrubHub Plus and a four-month free trial of Amazon Music Unlimited.

Plus, the screaming deals are not limited to the US. The new Amazon Prime Day will be a global event. There is a lengthy list of countries thrilled with the news that can take advantage of the savings extravaganza.

There is no indication yet whether this sale will become an annual event. This year is the first time the company has ever held two Prime Days in a single year. Amazon will likely wait to see how well it goes before making any future decisions.

Given the current financial climate, people worldwide will likely jump at the chance to save a little money. And getting holiday shopping done sooner to avoid crowds is always a bonus. Plus, the new Amazon Prime Day also has a hidden added benefit for consumers.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for this time and at a price you like, just wait for Black Friday to roll around. Chances are, you will be able to find all the gifts you need between the two discount events. Just don’t forget to snag a little treat for yourself!
