Amazon has announced that its 2nd Prime Day sale will take place on October 10 and 11, and the retailer is bringing back invite-only deals that we first saw during this year's July sale. This is a fantastic opportunity for Prime members to reserve deals now and avoid the craze of the official Amazon Prime Day sale.

So how do Amazon's invite-only offers work, and are the deals worth it? Prime members can request an invite on the product page, and Amazon will automatically put in your request with the email associated with your account. If selected, you'll get an email with a unique link during the October Prime Day sale.
We've listed all of Amazon's invite-only deals below, and after checking out the price history and discounts, the deals are actually quite good. Only six products are offered, including a Philips air fryer, the Blink outdoor security camera, a Sony soundbar, Jabra's Elite 7 Active earbuds, the SodaStream sparkling water maker bundle, and a men's Citizen Promaster Dive watch.
The invite-only deals include record-low prices and massive discounts you won't see outside of sales like the upcoming Black Friday deals event. There are limited quantities, and you must be an Amazon Prime member to request the deal. Not a member? You can sign up for a free 30-day trial, which will take you through to Amazon's October Prime Big Deals Days sale event.
