A LEAKED Amazon document has indicated the company is planning to host a second e-commerce holiday loaded with deals and sales.
This year's Amazon Prime Day came and went in mid-July but it appears there will be more opportunity for savings later this year.
Amazon is reportedly plotting a second self-established holiday called the "Prime Early Access Sale".
Internal documents indicated the pseudo-holiday looks to reward Prime members for their "loyalty" with epic markdowns on premium products.
Insider said that one document reads "This event is one of the best deals events of the year and Prime members would be crazy to miss it."
Amazon is reportedly targeting October for the new savings event.

Meanwhile, inflation and its impact on gas prices have stunted personal spending and heightened consumers' appetite for an enticing deal.
