Amazon’s Prime Early Access sale kicks off at midnight tonight in the US and UK, which means it’s almost go-time if you’re looking to snap up some deals before the holiday season. 

As with Prime Day proper, this new Amazon sale is a global shopping event running over days (11-12 October). We’ll be live-blogging all the best deals here, and there are already some huge discounts on the Echo Dot and other Alexa devices to browse – so we’ve started early…

You’ll need to be a Prime member to get your hands on most (but not all) of the best deals. But if you don’t have Prime, you can still take part by signing up for a 30-day free Prime trial – just make sure you cancel it before the trial ends if you don’t want to become a full Prime member.

So what are we expecting to see in the Prime Day 2.0 sale over the next few days? Alongside Amazon staples like its own brand devices, there are likely to be a host of excellent deals on laptops, TVs, headphones, home and kitchen appliances as Amazon looks to kick off Black Friday early… Here’s what we’ve seen so far.
