Although Prime Day 2022 has ended, you can still shop many of the TV sales below. To help SPY readers save all year long, we’ve gathered the best Prime Day TV deals into one place, and many of these discounts are still available as of September 2022.

Sound the Alexa-inspired fanfare, a second Amazon Prime Day is officially on its way! (Technically, this shopping event has been dubbed the Prime Early Access Sale, not second Prime Day.) The Prime Early Access Sale is a new shopping event designed to give shoppers the perfect opportunity to do their Christmas shopping early. Considering that SPY.com has already started working on selecting the year’s top Christmas gifts, we’re all for it.

The Prime Early Access Sale is slated to take place on October 11 and 12, and this even will give you a second chance to take advantage of the best Prime Day TV deals. Some of the discounts we saw on popular LG, Hisense, Samsung and Sony TVs during Prime Day 2022 have since gone back online, and we anticipate even more TV deals to appear as we approach October 11. Keep checking back, as we’ll regularly update this post with the best Amazon TV deals for Prime members.

What Is the Prime Early Access Sale?

Every year, Amazon hosts a 2-day shopping event called Prime Day, and it’s typically second only to Black Friday as the biggest shopping event of the year. This year, rumors have been swirling that Amazon would host a second Prime Day, and on September 26, Amazon announced that it would host the Prime Early Access Sale in October.

So even though it’s not being branded as a second Prime Day, it’s still an Amazon shopping event where Prime members can save a lot of money. If you’ve been looking to score a deal on some of the top tech products from 2022, shopping this second Prime shopping event is a surefire way to save on household appliances, affordable flatscreens and smart home gadgets.

This two-day extravaganza is the perfect time to invest in a new TV. During the Prime Early Access Sale, we expect Amazon to bring back the best Prime Day TV deals of 2022, and you’ll be able to easily find massive discounts on OLED TVs, Smart TVs, and 85-inch TVs from Samsung, Sony and LG.

Because we’ve covered Prime Day deals in previous years (and because we report on the best daily Amazon deals), we have a pretty darn good idea of what kinds of TV deals you can expect during the Prime Early access sale.

To help you prepare, we’ve gathered the top Prime Day TV deals of 2022 that are still live for you below, and you can also check out our guide to the Best Prime Day Deals on OLED TVs. We’ve included options for every price range, from budget TVs under $100 to smart models discounted by up to $1,000.

1. TCL 6-Series 4K Smart TV

TCL saw plenty of attention at last year’s Prime Day event. We wouldn’t be surprised to see TCL TVs becoming one of the best Prime Day deals on TVs in 2022. Currently, you can save an incredible $550 on the brand’s premium 6-Series, which offers a stunning display and big sound. At the new $950 price tag, we think the 65-inch 6-Series is the best TV for most people.

2. LG C2 Series OLED evo

We thought that if we were really, really lucky, LG’s new flagship C2 Series OLED TV would go on sale for Prime Day, and that’s exactly what happened. As brick-and-mortar retailers like Best Buy, Target and Walmart are marking down prices on mid-range and budget-tier TVs, Amazon shoppers can save over $250 on the 65-inch model of the LG C2, the manufacturer’s flagship OLED TV. We recently named this the best TV of 2022, and the current price drop makes this one of the best Prime Day TV deals of 2022 as well.

Right now, Prime members can buy the 65-inch C2 Series from Amazon for $1,796. It’s a markdown for sure, which is notable given how relatively new it is. And with accolades like LG’s latest OLED evo panel that dishes out billions of jaw-dropping colors, powerful 4K upscaling, and four HDMI 2.1 inputs for all your next-gen gaming needs, the C2 series is shaping up to be one of the most talked-about sets of 2022.

3. Amazon Fire TV Omni Series

SPY TESTED + APPROVED

Another first-party Amazon exclusive, the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series is receiving some major pre-Prime Day discounting, with current markdowns bringing the price down as low as $300. We recently reviewed the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series and can say that it’s easily one of the best budget smart TV in the world right now.

4. LG OLED C1 Series 83” Alexa Built-in 4k Smart TV

Looking to splurge on an amazing TV on Prime Day? The massive 83-inch LF OLED Smart TV is exactly what you need. Right now, this premium LG OLED Smart TV, which we named the best TV of 2021, is discounted by 33% and was one of the best Prime Day TV deals during the July 2022 event.

5. Samsung QN90B TVs

We couldn’t resist sharing the wildly expensive Samsung Q90A above, but back on planet earth, this Prime Day TV deal is much more realistic. Better yet, we named the excellent Samsung QN90B QLED TV the best overall 85-inch TV of 2022 recently, and it’s marked down by up to $1,500 ahead of Prime Day 2.0.

6. Amazon Fire TV 4-Series

BEST BUDGET TV

Amazon’s new line of budget smart TVs, the Fire TV 4-Series, already receives priority discounting from the online retailer. Amazon will certainly be pushing this excellent 4K model hard for Prime Day 2.0.

7. Toshiba C350 Series Fire TV

The first Prime Day 2021 was very good for the world of Toshiba TVs, and the same will likely be true for the second Prime Day 2022.

8. Insignia Class F20 Series Smart Fire TV

ONLY $100!

Insignia was a big win for Prime Day 2022, offering big savings on both its 24- and 39-inch Fire TV offerings. Both sizes have been available since 2020, and Amazon is trying to get rid of its remaining inventory. Thus, you can score some of the steepest Prime Day TV deals on these Insignias, which are marked down up to 41% while supplies last. Normally, $100 smart TVs would be too good to be true, but these prices are very real.

How We Chose the Best Prime Day TV Deals of 2022

If the second Prime Day 2022 hasn’t started, how do we know what the best Prime Day deals on TVs are going to be? Based on previous Prime Day events and the early deals featured above, we have a pretty good sense as to what TVs will be getting the biggest markdowns for Prime members this year. While a number of these featured sets are already on sale, we’re betting you can nab the same savings (or better) if you hang in there until Prime Day.

In addition, you can check out the top Prime Day TV deals of 2021, which should give you a good idea of what to expect this year. In the small TV and budget category, Prime Day 2021 saw some excellent discounts on Fire TVs from Insignia and Toshiba as well as select Hisense models. In the premium TV category, we saw some steep discounts of up to $2,000 on Sony Bravia OLED TVs.

Last year, Prime Day 2021 featured TV discounts such as:

  • Insignia 24-inch Fire TV for $99 (Original Price $169)
  • Insignia 39-inch Fire TV for $179 (Original Price $249)
  • Toshiba 55-inch C350 Fire TV for $349 (Original Price $479)
  • Hisense 55-inch H9 for $699 (Original Price $999)
  • Sony 77-Inch Bravia OLED TV for $2,999 (Original Price $4,999)
  • Sony 75-Inch X950H TV for $1,998 (Original Price $2,599)
  • Samsung 65-Inch The Frame TV for $1,597 (Original Price $1,999)

In addition, we saw huge discounts on the LG C1 Series OLED TV during Black Friday 2021, and we expect this to be one of the best Prime Day TV deals of 2022.

Keep checking this post, which we’re updating regularly ahead of Prime Day. During the event itself, we’ll be updating this guide in real-time to ensure it contains the latest discounts.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will Prime Day TV Deals Begin?

Updated: Prime Day 2022 has officially ended. If you're still looking to save on a new TV, then hold out until October 11-12, when Amazon will host the Prime Early Access sale.

It's official: Prime Day 2022 will take place from July 12 to July 13, which is back to form for the Amazon powers that be. Of course, if you're interested in getting an excellent deal on a TV, there's no harm in starting your search before Prime Day, as we're betting Amazon (and other retailers) will start marking sets down in the weeks leading up to Prime Day 2022.

In the meantime, make sure you sign up for an Amazon Prime membership, and then check out our complete guide to the Best Prime Day Deals of 2022, as well as the Best Prime Day Laptop Deals we expect to see.

Should You Wait To Buy a TV During Amazon Prime Day?

Yes! Prime Day is a great time of year to shop around for a TV, especially when you consider the fervor of massive competition. Major retailers like Best Buy and Walmart go above and beyond to match Amazon's Prime Day prices, with brick and mortar locations even offering exclusive deals on sets you won't find marked down through Amazon.

Another heads up: the 4th of July is right around the corner, which offers another fantastic time of year to save big on huge brand names like Samsung, LG, Sony and Hisense.

We do have one caveat: The best Prime Day TV deals won't be on the brand new 2022 models, but rather on TVs originally released in 2020 and 2021. And once the inventory is gone, it's gone for good. So if you find a great deal on 2021 flagship TVs like the LG C1 OLED Series or the Samsung QN90A QLED TV, don't assume it will still be available come Prime Day.

You'll also want to keep an eye out on some of the early bird deals for Amazon Prime Day, just because you may never know what may come up that's too good to pass up.

Do You Need Amazon Prime to Get the Best Prime Day TV Deals?

Yes and no. If you're looking to do all your shopping on Amazon for Prime Day 2022, the online retailer will be offering the best discounts to Prime members as they have in years past.

New Amazon Prime memberships are available with a 30-day trial period, after which you'll be billed $14.99 every month. An Amazon Prime subscription is more than just a deal here and there though, as the membership also gets you access to Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Gaming and free two-day shipping on tons of products.

This isn't to say you still can't venture out to your local Best Buy to find some TV savings of equivalent value. But if you're planning on keeping things online-only, an Amazon Prime membership is well worth the investment.
