While Amazon’s best-known deals are on Prime Day, the retailer hosts other worthwhile sales throughout the year. And shoppers don’t have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday: In its ongoing Epic Daily Deals, the company is offering discounts on items across the spectrum, from technology to skin care products. Some sales only last 24 hours, while others will be available through the rest of October and into November.
Though October might seem early for Amazon to be offering holiday sales and deals, retail experts previously told us that now is the perfect time for shoppers to begin preparing for the holidays, especially since retailers across industries are expected to continue experiencing global supply chain issues. The later you wait to shop, the harder it could be to find the exact gift you were hoping to give.
To help you make the most of the ongoing sales on Amazon, we compiled a list of the best sales and deals from the Epic Daily Deals event. To ensure the quality of these sales and deals, we’ve checked their current prices on price tracker platforms like Honey and CamelCamelCamel.
