Amazon.com Inc. AMZN has officially announced its upcoming “Prime Big Deals Day 2023,” scheduled for Oct. 10 and 11. Here’s everything customers need to know about the event and its significance as the holiday season approaches.

What Happened: This sales event is strategically positioned ahead of the holiday season and allows shoppers to take advantage of discounts and kickstart their holiday shopping.

While Amazon Prime Big Deals Day is a boon for Prime members, it’s worth noting that in the U.S., the membership typically costs $14.99 per month or $139 per year. 

However, new subscribers can take advantage of a 30-day free trial just in time for the sale.
