Amazon announced that it is giving Prime members early access to holiday deals. Members will get access to select "Lightning Deals" on Amazon.com and daily sales events on MyHabit.com thirty minutes earlier than other customers.

Lightning Deals are limited promotions, which run throughout the day on specific items. MyHabit, if you're not familiar with it, is a fashion and lifestyle shopping site.

“Holiday shopping has become synonymous with deal shopping and this holiday, we’re adding new ways for customers to find special gifts for everyone on their list with savings throughout the season,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President of Amazon Prime. “With early access deals for Prime members, we are providing our most frequent shoppers with a first look at some of the best offers from Amazon and MyHabit this holiday, and all year.”

MyHabit GM Daren Hull added, "We know customers love discovering the variety of fashion and home brands available on MyHabit, and we are thrilled to offer Prime members a first look at our incredible selection at truly incredible prices. This holiday, we are increasing the selection of daily sales events and Flash Finds, our best deals of the year, which feature unique brands and products that are rarely discounted.”
