Amazon's Prime "Day" is now officially a bi-annual event. The company today confirmed that it will host a second deals event for Prime members on Oct. 10-11.

Between Prime Day 1.0 and this year's other major shopping holiday—Black Friday—Amazon will hold Prime Big Deal Days next month, beginning at 3 a.m. ET on Oct. 10 and running through Oct. 11. The name seems to be a nod to the fact that these sales are no longer one-day events, but multi-day deal extravaganzas looking to entice those eager to get a head start on their holiday shopping.

As usual, you'll need to be a Prime member in one of 19 countries to save: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, the US, and the UK.

Last year was the first time Amazon expanded Prime Day savings to a second event in the fall, which it called the Prime Early Access Sale.
