When is October Prime Day 2023?

Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days event (also known as October Prime Day) will take place on October 10th through the 11th. 

Exclusive deals and discounts for Prime members go live at 3 a.m. ET and will refresh as often as every 30 minutes during the event.

How did we choose these Amazon Prime Day deals?

While combing through Amazon Prime Day deals as well as deals from other retailers, I kept these criteria in mind:

  • Discounts and coupons: No matter the retailer, a sale is only as good as the discounts it offers. I've ensured that each TV featured on this list was marked down at least 20% to give you the best value. I've also included TVs that offer extra savings via limited-time coupons and rebates.
  • Screen size: Not all living rooms and home theaters are created equal. So I included a variety of screen sizes for shoppers looking for everything from a smaller secondary screen for their bedroom or a new big-screen model to upgrade their home theater.
  • Brand trust and product quality: Just like living rooms, not all TVs are created equal. While it's tempting to spring for that ultra-cheap, unfamiliar brand, it's more important to opt for a discounted TV from a trusted brand like TCL, Hisense, Sony, or Samsung for better customer support as well as product quality.

What is the best TV?

My pick for the best TV is the Samsung QN90C for its Object Tracking Sound and Dolby Atmos support, which creates audio that follows the on-screen action. It also features an anti-glare coating on the screen for better visibility in bright rooms or overhead lighting. And if you ever feel like the picture quality needs fine-tuning, you can use the Smart Calibration app to tweak color, contrast, and color temperature.
