Best deals for Halloween supplies

According to News Nation, last year, over 70 percent of adults celebrated Halloween. The largest demographic (and the biggest spenders) were ages 18 to 35. The total planned spending for last year was 10.1 billion dollars.

If you celebrate Halloween, you’re going to want to get the best deal possible on decorations. Luckily, Amazon is having a second savings event called Prime Early Access Sale, this year, and it will take place before Halloween. You can get the decorations you want and save money doing so.

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale will highlight live deals every day leading up to the main event. These deals were updated on: October 8, 11 AM ET.

Why is Halloween popular?

One reason Halloween is so popular is it offers something for everyone. If you’d like to be someone else for a day, you can dress up in your favorite costume. People who just want to show their appreciation for Oct. 31 can put up holiday-themed lights and decorations. If you prefer the scary side of Halloween, there are plenty of fun scary things you can do like go to a haunted attraction or build one yourself, complete with a creepy Halloween coffin.

We’ve broken down this year’s Halloween essentials into three sections: best costumes, best decorations and best spooky items.
