Months after Prime Day 2023, Amazon announced another heavily hyped sale—this one dubbed not Prime Day, but Prime Big Deal Days. Whatever you decide to call it, the upcoming mega-sale will offer plenty of products at substantial discounts ahead of Black Friday and the holiday shopping season.

“We’re giving our Prime members yet another way to save, with deals on some of the most wanted gifts of the season,” said Jamil Ghani, vice president of Amazon Prime, in a release. “Members can shop deals across categories like fashion, home, and toys that include some of our most popular items during Prime Big Deal Days. They can also take advantage of other exciting Prime member benefits, like shopping favorite brands beyond with Buy with Prime and accessing doorbuster deals with Invite-only deals.”
