Amazon‘s long-awaited Prime Early Access sale is finally live. Now through 11:59 p.m. (PT) on Wednesday, October 12, Prime members can score major early Black Friday savings across all site categories. If you aren’t already signed up for Amazon Prime, there’s never been a better time for a 30-day free trial.
Like any major Prime event, the Prime Early Access sale is awash with ultra-low prices and early holiday deals on Amazon devices, TVs, headphones, computers, accessories and plenty of other gadgets. If you’re feeling antsy about rising prices and low stock affecting your Black Friday shopping, these Prime Early Access tech deals can give you a solid head start on your holiday gift list.
You never know what you might find over the next two days, but you definitely don’t want to miss out on these Prime tech deals:
Save up to 80% on Select Fire TVs
Whether you’re shopping for a $100 TV or a $5,000 TV, you’re undoubtedly going to save money — the Prime Early Access sale is brimming with Black Friday-caliber TV discounts fit for any budget.
We’re expecting a wide variety of 4K TV deals from major brands like LG and Sony, but this is a Prime event, after all: Fire TVs will receive the biggest price cuts of the Prime Early Access Sale, along with last-chance discounts on popular 2021 model TVs like the Samsung Frame.
As the sale continues, look out for two confirmed Fire TV deals:
- Save 80% on the 55” Amazon Fire TV Omni Series 4K Smart Fire TV — Sale Price: $111.99 | Reg. Price: $559.99
- Save 70% on the 50” Hisense U6 Series QLED 4K Smart Fire TV — Sale Price: $158.99 | Reg. Price: $529.99
Amazon doesn’t provide advance notice for big-ticket items without a good reason, so assume these confirmed TV discounts will be Lightning Deals with limited stock. The last few Prime Day Fire TV Lightning Deals went live at 6 a.m. PT, so remember to set your watch (or a Deal Alert!) if you don’t want to miss out. While it wasn’t a Lightning Deal, the 55” Fire TV Omni Series sold out shortly after the price dropped to $300 during Prime Day earlier this year.
If it doesn’t go on sale in the early hours of October 11th, we’ll see you bright and early at 6 a.m. on the 12th.
Prime Savings for PC Gamers
The Prime Early Access sale leans heavily toward accessories and PC gaming deals, but you’ll still find plenty of discounted games and console-specific products during the event.
Logitech G was well-represented among Amazon’s pre-Prime Early Access offers, where we saw substantive discounts on wireless gaming mice, headsets and keyboards. There’s no guarantee that these sale prices will drop even lower during the sale, but stranger things have happened.
Amazon highlighted a couple of noteworthy Logitech deals to look out for:
- Logitech G29 Gaming Racing Wheel — Sale Price: $199.99 | Reg. Price: $399.99
- Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse — Sale Price: $49.99 | Reg. Price: $99.99
Save up to 70% on Amazon Devices
Whether you’re shopping on Black Friday, Prime Day or the Prime Early Access sale, you can count on one thing — huge Amazon device discounts are the bread and butter of every major Prime event.
Before the Prime Early Access sale began, Amazon advertised discounts up to 70% off on Amazon devices. We’ve already seen record-low prices on Amazon Echo devices like this Echo Show 5 (2021), which only costs $35 — that’s a 59% discount off the usual $85 list price.
If you’re on the hunt for a discounted Fire Tablet or Kindle, Amazon is running several promotions and Fire Tablet bundle deals during the Prime Early Access sale. Here are some of our favorite tablet deals:
- Fire HD 10 Tablet, 10.1” (2021) — Sale Price: $74.99 | Reg. Price: $149.99
- Fire HD 8 Kids Tablet, 8” (2020) — Sale Price: $69.99 | Reg. Price: $139.99
- Kindle Paperwhite, 8GB (2021) — Sale Price: $99.99 | Reg. Price: $139.99
- Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle with Amazon Fabric Cover, and Power Adapter — Sale Price: $117.97 | Reg. Price: $189.97
Naturally, Amazon device bundles are another staple of the Prime Early Access sale. This Echo Dot bundle comes packed with two GE CYNC Smart LED Color Bulbs along with a third-generation Echo Dot – all for $18, which is $10 cheaper than a standalone two-pack of GE CYNC lightbulbs.
Speakers, Headphones and Earbuds Up to 50% Off
According to Amazon, the Prime Early Access sale is guaranteed to feature savings of up to 50% on headphones, speakers and earbuds from Bose, JBL and Sony. Granted, those are just the brands we know about — stay on the lookout for headphones deals from other top brands like Beats and Samsung over the next two days.
