Amazon packages stacked by front door

Amazon has today announced the launch of a new two-day shopping Sale, Prime Early Access, in mid October, designed to help customers “spread out their seasonal spending”.

With the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, Amazon said the October 11 and 12 event would provide “an additional opportunity for members to get their hands on what they need, for less, while helping to spread out their seasonal spending”. 

It will run across 15 countries: UK, US, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
