The 48-hour event will have thousands of products discounted exclusively for Amazon Prime members, giving consumers the chance to get a head start on their upcoming holiday shopping

There are a number of credit cards that can help you earn bonus rewards on Amazon purchases. Some cards also offer other perks like extended warranties and 0% intro APR periods
