Amazon Prime Day might have ended in July, but all signs are pointing to a second 2022 Prime Day happening this fall. Amazon reps have confirmed to Rolling Stone that they are working on some sort of big sales event in October, giving shoppers a second chance to score discounts and deals. According to reports, the second Prime Day is tentatively being called the “Prime Early Access Sale.”
The first Amazon Prime Day 2022 kicked off July 12 and ran through the end of July 13. Aside from a slight scheduling change (due to Covid) in 2020, Amazon Prime Day dates have always been in the middle of summer, and this year’s Prime Day date was no different.
The second Amazon Prime Day is rumored to be taking place in October, with the week of October 10th having been thrown out as a possible date.
If this date holds true, it will be the second time that Amazon has held a big sales event in October. The site pushed its Prime Day sale to October in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic before returning it to its usual summer slot.

Similar to previous years, Amazon Prime Day took place over two days once again this year, giving shoppers 48 hours to score a deal and discount online. It’s unclear if the Prime Early Access Sale will also take place over two days, or if it’ll be a one-day-only event.

The short answer is yes. While Amazon has a Daily Deals page that offers discounts and sales to anyone shopping on the site, the best Prime Day deals are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime members and the new Prime Day event is no different. There are a ton of other benefits to an Amazon Prime membership, which we’ve rounded up here.
If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can still get a 30-day free trial right now which will get you access to all the Prime Day and Prime Early Access Sale deals.
Amazon said Prime Day 2022 was its busiest one yet, with more than 300 million items sold. Top-selling categories this year included Amazon Devices, electronics, and home goods, with brands like Apple, Hamilton Beach, Levi’s and Le Creuset seeing big sales.
But Prime Day also saw a number of household essentials being added to carts worldwide, with things like diapers and cleaning products also topping the best-sellers list.
If Amazon holds a second Prime Day event in October, expect similar deals on tech, home and kitchen, fashion and everyday essentials.
Amazon usually reserves its best deals for its slate of Amazon devices and the company says its Fire TV, Echo, and Blink devices were some of the best-selling items worldwide during the first Prime Day in July.
