Mark your calendars as Amazon confirms accidentally that Prime Early Access sale dates ...

Mark your calendars! The Amazon Prime Early Access Sale will be held on October 11 and 12. Rumors of the sale have been circulating since spring, but Amazon itself has (mistakenly?) published a "Terms & Conditions" page (opens in a new tab) that confirms the sale. The page was first spotted by What Hi-Fi? (opens in a new tab)

The following is a description of a Prime Early Access deal for Alexa voice shopping that will last until October 11th at 12 a.m. PT and October 12th at 11:59 p.m. PT.

According to the Amazon page, the Alexa sale is only available to Prime members. This suggests that the Prime Early Access Sale will be a Prime member exclusive, much like Prime Day. Earlier this week, we received PR pitches detailing Amazon''s October event. This new leak comes direct from Amazon, which all but confirms the event.

What to expect from Amazon''''s October sale

Based on the shorter 48-hour timeline, we can conclude that the Prime Early Access Sale will be more like Prime Day than the Epic Daily Deals Event. That means we can expect Lightning deals, massive discounts on Amazon hardware, Whole Foods deals, and Black Friday-like discounts sitewide. (Check our guide to Amazon''s best promo codes for additional ways to save at Amazon).

Although we have yet to remember Halloween, retailers are expected to provide their first batch of Black Friday deals as early as October. Target, for example, announced it''ll resume its Daily Deals event on October 6.

If you''re not a Prime member, you may enjoy the free Amazon Prime trials from the retailer. If you''re a freshman, you may sign up for a 30-day trial (opens in a new tab) or a 6-month trial (opens in a new tab). Furthermore, EBT and government assistance recipients may sign up for a free 30-day trial (opens in a new tab) and receive 50% off their membership if they keep it.
