And just like that … October Prime Day is over! Well, almost. The fall Prime Day that’s meant to kick off holiday-shopping season technically ended last night, but there are still a few deals to take advantage of across all categories, including fashion, beauty, home, and tech.


How long is October Prime Day?

Prime Big Deal Days started yesterday, October 10, at 3 a.m. ET and ends today, October 11, at midnight PT.

Are October Prime Day deals available for non–Prime members?

Unfortunately, you do need to be a Prime member to take advantage of Prime Big Deal Days. But here is a pro tip: Sign up for a 30-day free trial before October 10, then cancel it when the sale ends. You’ll get access to all the deals (along with other member benefits, such as free two-day shipping and Prime Video) without paying the monthly $15 fee.

What’s the difference between Prime Day and Prime Big Deal Days?

Good question. Prime Day and Prime Big Deal Days are essentially the same thing, except the former is a summer event and the latter happens during spooky szn. And, because of the timing, Amazon is touting October Prime Day as the kickoff to holiday shopping.

What are the best October Prime Day deals?

October Prime Day is a great time to stock up on Amazon best sellers as well as items from the online retailer’s in-house labels (including Amazon Essentials, Amazon Collection, and the Drop) and products that were marked down during the previous Prime Day. If you didn’t get everything you wanted in July, now is your time to shine. To make the shopping process easier, we’ve rounded up the best deals in every category and will continue to update this list throughout the day. Happy shopping!

Best October Prime Day Beauty Deals

October Prime Day features deals from beauty brands like Laneige (its lip mask is on sale again!), Dyson, and Nuface, as well as Cut Shop–approved products from our Obsessive Tester roundups. These are the skin-care, hair-care, and makeup deals that we think are too good to pass up — as professional shoppers who are constantly putting new products to the test.

Best October Prime Day Fashion Deals

Amazon probably isn’t your go-to destination for clothing, shoes, and accessories, but the retailer has some hidden gems (especially in the Shopbop section). We did the searching for you and rounded up the best wardrobe essentials from brands like Hanes and designer steals from “It”-girl labels like Poppy Lissiman, below.

Best October Prime Day Home Deals

The great thing about shopping for furniture and home décor on Amazon is that you can buy everything you could possibly need for your space at the same time — from lightbulbs and glassware to a duvet cover and accent chair. These are a few of our favorite finds. P.S. Lindsay Peoples, editor-in-chief of the Cut, has the Vitruvi diffuser, and her office always feels like a spa.
