Amazon’s Prime Day schedule has been a little shaky for the past few years. First, it was delayed until fall. Then Prime Day came a month early in June, and for the past couple of years, it was back in July again.

Now, in addition to Prime Day, Amazon has introduced a new Prime-only sale to its calendar. Last fall, Amazon ran its first-ever Prime Early Access Sale which was basically a second Prime Day sales event in October.

The bad news is that the Prime Early Access Sale is no more. But the good news is that Amazon has a new Prime-only sale to replace it. Amazon calls it Prime Big Deal Days, and it’s basically the exact same thing as the early access sale last year. Prime members have two days to shop tons of early holiday deals that are just as good as anything we’ll see during Black Friday.

There are even some excellent early Prime Big Deal Days 2023 deals this year. Here are some examples:

Everyone knows that Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year each and every year. And now, Amazon has a second 48-hour sale for Prime members. Needless to say, this sale is going to be epic.

The sheer number of deals isn’t the only thing that sets Amazon’s Prime events apart from other big sales events each year. After all, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are packed with even more deals since every retailer in the country participates in those big sales.

No, what sets Prime Day and the Prime Big Deal Days event apart is that all the deep discounts that are available only to Amazon Prime subscribers. That means anyone who isn’t a Prime member will have to pay full price.
