With the holiday season fast approaching, Amazon is making it easier than ever to prepare — months before any gift-giving exchanges will occur.

Best Prime Early Access Sale Deals Overall

For just a few hours longer, you can discover sale prices on top-rated Amazon devices, Apple products, electronics, home essentials, beauty products, fall and winter fashion must-haves, and kitchen appliances — and prices are up to 80 percent off. You'll be able to shop customer-loved brands like Sony, Ninja, Revlon, Le Creuset, and Bose and pick up seriously discounted vacuum cleaners, headphones, blenders, and smart devices.

Since there's so much to shop, but so little time left, we've made it super easy for you to navigate the sale during its final stretch. Keep reading to check out our top Prime Early Access Sale deals, including a vacuum cleaner that's $450 off and the AirPod Pro (Second Generation), which are on sale for the first time. And don't forget to refer back to our guide often: We'll be updating this list until the very end of the shopping event.

The Prime Early Access Sale operates similarly to Prime Day: It has thousands of deals spread out across the two-day sale, including Lightning Deals (items that are only on sale for a few hours at a time), Deals of the Day (sales that will last 24 hours), and deals that will last for the full 48 hours of the event.

Because most of the sales are offered exclusively to Prime members, you'll need a membership to access them. So make sure to sign up for one now or begin a 30-day free trial. This will not only unlock these last-minute Early Access deals, but it will also upgrade you to free two-day shipping, unveil Amazon's entire movie and TV catalog through Prime Video and hundreds of books and magazines with Prime Reading, and grant unlimited photo storage with Amazon Photos.

The Prime Early Access Sale has also introduced a slew of new features. Prime members have the option to flip through gift guides to prep for the holiday season. This year, you'll find a curation devoted to customers' most-loved gifts as well as a toys gift guide for the kids in your life. Plus, don't miss out on the home gift guide, jammed with great presents from De'Longhi, iRobot, Zinus, Shark, and more.

It's also your last chance to shop tons of PEOPLE Tested products that have been approved by our lab — and are seriously marked down. Top picks include an under-$20 milk frother and this $115 robot vacuum cleaner that our lab said is "easy to set up, control, maneuver, and maintain."

Keep reading to check out everything worth shopping before Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale ends. Once you've scrolled through all our top picks, head directly to the sale hub to discover everything else that's on sale. But make sure to keep one thing in mind: These prices are only guaranteed to last through midnight, so you'll want to check out as quickly as you can!
