Early Access for Amazon Prime Members

Early Access for Amazon Prime Members 'Tis the season to shop early! Amazon has announced that Prime members have another exclusive benefit to add to their list. Effective immediately, they'll be able to purchase select Amazon Lightning Deals 30 minutes before they become publicly available. Eligible Lightning Deals are marked "Prime Early Access Deal" below the % claimed bar on the Gold Box Deals page.

MyHabit.com, Amazon's sister site with daily sales featuring up to 60% off designer brands, will also be offering early access to sales events 30 minutes before they are available to other customers. Prime Members can shop sales at MyHabit starting at 8:30 AM PST while regular members of the site can enter their sales at 9:00 AM PST.

MyHabit membership is free. You can sign in with your existing Amazon information or create a new account. Amazon Prime costs $99.00 a year; if you're not already a member, you can sign up for a one-month free trial here. Other Prime membership benefits include free 2-day shipping on select items, access to Prime Instant Video and being able to borrow books from the Kindle Lending Library.

For our purposes this is exciting news; we predict Amazon is getting people used to the idea of this being a perk so they can give Amazon Prime members first crack at Black Friday 2014 doorbuster pricing online. The even better news is that as long as they keep the 1-month free trial promotion going (and you aren't already a member) you can start your free membership October 30th or later and get your Black Friday shopping done during the trial period - then cancel before you pay the $99 yearly fee. Sign up November 3rd to get in on Cyber Monday stuff, too. You're welcome shoppers!
