What is the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale?

This is the first time we’re seeing the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, so exactly what it is remains to be seen. Amazon, however, says that it will allow customers to get holiday season-equivalent deals — so we could end up seeing deals that rival those on Prime Day or Black Friday.
