Black Friday is almost synonymous with great deals on TVs. The original American shopping holiday has featured bargain televisions going back to the days of big-screen sets that weighed as much as a refrigerator. Amazon’s own shopping holidays are increasingly catching up. In July, Prime Day deals on TVs were plentiful, including screaming sales on sets from LG, Samsung, and Vizio. We expect similar sales for Prime Big Deals Days, Amazon’s new October event which will be on October 10 and 11, 2023.

We will have the best Prime Day TV deals in October, tracking prices closely on top WIRED-recommended TVs, soundbars, and 4K streaming devices.

Our favorite TV for gamers is on a steep discount right now, down from its normal $2,100. Reviewer Parker Hall had high praise for this model: “Whether you’re passively viewing or actively gaming, the LG C3 is an object lesson in realism, detail retrieval, motion handling, and all the other stuff that goes into truly satisfying image quality.”
Samsung’s Neo QLED panels are some of the best and brightest I’ve ever seen, making them particularly well-suited to brighter viewing spaces. We have not tested this specific model, but there’s built-in Alexa to help you set timers and play Spotify when you’re not watching a movie. This one features mini-LED backlighting for near-perfect contrast and a center pedestal mount that lets you place it anywhere.
Samsung’s Neo QLED panels are some of the best screens for bright rooms, and this pedestal-mounted 75-incher fits perfectly on most TV stands. This model also features mini-LED backlighting, which means you’ll get even better contrast and color highlights, and it has Alexa onboard, which makes it easy to set timers and ask the weather.
