It’s no secret that Amazon has some pretty stellar sales now and then. Most of the time, Prime Day gets all the recognition. But this year, Amazon is trying out a brand new sale that promises to be chock full of great deals.
Starting today and running through Oct. 12, Amazon will mark down thousands of items. That’s right — for 48 hours, you can browse awesome deals from the comfort of your home and get a jump on your holiday gift lists. The sale comes just in time for the holiday season and includes a variety of goodies.
Just about any category you can think of has items on sale, including electronics like laptops and tablets. You can also score some hot deals on clothing, pet supplies, toys, shoes, kitchen supplies, and Amazon’s own devices like Kindle. It’s a great opportunity to make a big dent in your holiday shopping, but the low prices also make it a great time to gift yourself a little something as well.
If you’re already a Prime member, you’ll have access to all these deals. A few sales are also available for non-members, but to score the best discounts, you’ll want to become a member. For those who haven’t yet signed up, Amazon is offering a free 30-day trial, so you don’t have to miss out. Even better? You can set alerts for things you really want so you know right away when they go on sale.
Here are some of the best TVs on sale for Amazon’s first-ever Prime Early Access Sale.
Prime Day TV deals
Best Samsung TV Deals at Amazon:
Having a large screen can make all the difference. This Samsung 65-Inch Class QLED Q70A Series is plenty big for catching your favorite football team’s home game. It’s also got motion enhancements in 4K 120Hz, making it a great choice for watching a race or movies with fast-paced action. One reviewer even said the “picture is startling and sized for viewing distance.” It also plays nice with Alexa and Google Assistant for a hands-free channel surfing experience.
There’s also the 86-Inch Class Crystal TU-9010 Series TV for $200 less. The massive screen comes with a few unique features, like ambient mode which turns your TV into a picture frame by matching the background to the wall while presenting pictures in a slideshow or collage. Like to multitask while watching your favorite shows? Then the multi-screen setting will come in handy for you since it splits the screen in half, letting you watch shows on one side while casting whatever is on your tablet or phone on the other.
For people who love feeling as if they’re actually immersed in a show or movie, the Samsung 55-inch Class Curved UHD TU-8300 Series is a must. Because it’s curved, you’ll feel like you’re actually experiencing the ranch life in Yellowstone or zooming along in the classic Fast & The Furious series. The popular TV has more than 2,200 perfect ratings from shoppers who thought that it offers an “outstanding value” due to its crisp 4K resolution which gives off a “great picture” quality. One reviewer even wrote: “I feel like I am at the movies or in a nice theater [while] watching it.”
Sony X90J 55 Inch TV
Best Sony TV Deals at Amazon:
It’s a rare person who doesn’t have access to streaming services these days. Why not make it easier on yourself by upgrading to a TV that lets you stream without extra accessories? The Sony X90J 55-Inch Smart Google TV lets you access more than 700,000 movies and TV shows right from the TV itself. Choose your favorites from popular options like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney , and YouTube all by simply using the included remote.
People who are in the market for a TV that won’t break the bank will love the Sony 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD TV X80K Series, as it’s under $650 right now. But just because it’s cheaper than other options on our list doesn’t mean it’s lacking features. You’ll still get stunning images and Alexa connectivity along with Dolby Atmos audio for immersive sound.
Gamers should look at the Sony OLED 55-Inch A80K Series TV, which comes with a specialized gaming mode. One shopper wrote that their video games ran “extremely smooth and crisp” thanks to its “super low input lag.” Of course, you can also watch TV and movies on it when you’re not battling in a virtual world. Although it’s a bit of a splurge even on sale, it’s definitely worth it if you spend hours gaming, especially since it’s currently marked down by $200 (the lowest price it’s been all year).
Prime Day TV deals
Best TCL TV Deals at Amazon:
Shoppers looking for more affordable TVs may also want to consider TCL. Its 3-Series Roku Smart TV is popular on Amazon in the LED & LCD TV category with more than 11,000 five-star ratings. In the market for a slightly larger TV? The TCL 55-Inch Class 4-Series Smart Roku TV is a considerable upgrade, and it’s a whopping 50 percent off. Reviewers wrote that the “beautiful and sleek” medium-sized TV fits perfectly in their living rooms and bedrooms, so this is a great option if you live in a small space or don’t want your main TV to be too big.
The TCL 65-inch 6-Series QLED Roku Smart TV offers similarly excellent quality for a slightly higher price. The screen is larger, of course, and it comes with Dolby Vision HDR (high dynamic range) to make your movies and shows come to life. Plus, it’s now discounted by $550, making it a smart buy if you’re looking to upgrade your entertainment setup for sports games this season.

The Toshiba 43-Inch V35 Series Smart Fire TV is an excellent choice for saving both wall space and dollars. Though it can connect with you more than one million movies and shows through streaming and supports Apple AirPlay, it’s only $230 on sale. It’s smaller in size, though, so it’s ideal for kitchens, guest bedrooms, and offices.
Of course, no list of Amazon TV deals would be complete without mentioning the brand’s lineup of Fire TVs. The Amazon Fire TV 43-Inch Omni Series Smart TV has a stunning 4K Ultra HD display with Dolby Digital Plus. It works with Alexa, too, so you can change channels without ever having to locate the remote (why is it remotes are always getting lost, anyway?). It’s racked up nearly 2,000 five-star ratings, with one reviewer writing: “The detail is tremendous and instantly noticeable even for someone like me who has to wear glasses to see well as it is.”
Another customer-loved option is this 39-Inch Fire TV from Insignia. It’s a best-seller on Amazon in the smart TV, and the LED and LCD categories. Plus, it’s been topping the site’s Movers and Shakers chart this week, meaning it’s in hundreds of shoppers’ carts during the Prime Early Access Sale, which isn’t surprising considering the medium TV is currently almost 40 percent off. Many reviewers were so pleased by its quality that they bought multiple for their homes since it offers the “best bang for your buck.”
If you’re looking for something larger, consider the LG OLED C1 Series Smart TV. Featuring a large 65-inch screen, the OLED TV can give you a cinema-like viewing experience in the comfort of your own home. It comes with a Filmmaker mode that automatically adjusts and a gaming mode that saves your preferred settings and reduces lag time. It’s also equipped with multiple HDMI ports to accommodate all of your devices and can be synced with your other smart devices.
The Hisense ULED 65-Inch Android Smart TV is another top pick for gamers on our list. “I bought this TV solely for gaming on the PS5 since it has two HDMI2.1 ports, which means I can play both in 4k and 120hz,” one five-star reviewer wrote. “So far gaming experience wise it’s amazing, the colors pop, [and the] picture is clear and super bright.” It also comes with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, so you’ll experience high quality graphics and sound whether you’re watching a show or battling on screen.
Today is your lucky day if you’re on the hunt for a new TV of any size. But we don’t know how long these deals will last, so scoop up your favorites before they expire.
