What to shop and save big on during Amazon Prime Big Deals Days

From Oct. 10-11, Amazon Prime offers exclusive deals for its Big Deals Days sales event on tons of items — including Black-owned brands.  

“Prime Big Deals Day.” Whether you want to get ahead on holiday shopping or tap back into your fitness goals, Oct. 10 through Oct. 11 is the perfect time to shop. 

Also known as October Prime Day, the 48-hour sales event mirrors the structure of Amazon’s July Prime Day sale, meaning the retailer will rotate different deals during each day of the sale. While some coupons will remain live throughout the sale, others will only be available for a day or in 4-hour to 12-hour increments. According to a press release shared with theGrio, most independent sellers participating in the sale event are small to medium-sized businesses, including select Black-owned businesses. Although deals will constantly change throughout the sale, here are some to look out for as you browse Amazon’s virtual sale aisles.
