What are invite-only Amazon Prime Big Deal Days deals?

Amazon Prime Day is already an exclusive sale, but it will be even more exclusive this time around with invite-only deals.

For some of its big-ticket doorbuster deals, Amazon is issuing invite-only deals. This means members have to register to have access to those deals.

Even if a member registers, there’s no guarantee that they will be able to purchase the item.

Because of limited inventory, only a select few members will be sent an invite after registering. Amazon will email members to notify them if they were selected. Members who weren’t selected will be notified by Oct. 11, the last day of the sale.

Members can register for invite-only deals now.

As of Monday, Oct. 2, Amazon has only announced six invite-only deals for Prime Big Deal Days. Here they are:

How to register for an invite-only deal
