Sound the Alexa-inspired fanfare, a second Amazon Prime Day is officially underway, with only a couple hours left to shop. (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 started on October 11 and runs through the end of the day today, and this event 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. 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 expected Amazon to bring back the best Prime Day TV deals of 2022, and we weren’t surprised to see big savings on OLED TVs, Smart TVs, and 85-inch TVs from Samsung, Sony and LG.
We’ve gathered the top Prime Day TV deals of 2022 that are currently live, and we’ve been updating this post throughout the day with the most current pricing. 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, and you can currently take substantial discounts on Roku-enabled TCL TVs.

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.
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 $400. 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 C1 Series OLED 4k Smart TV
The famous LG C1 Series OLED TV is one of the best TVs in the world, full stop. And ever since Black Friday 2021, LG hasn’t missed an excuse to discount the price by hundreds or thousands of dollars. Considering that this TV is now considered previous-generation, we wouldn’t be surprised if this TV drops to its lowest-ever price during the Prime Early Access Sale, making this one of the top Prime Day TV deals of 2022 — again. Look for discounts on all sizes in this line.
Looking to splurge on an amazing TV on Prime Day? The massive 83-inch LG C1 Series OLED TV is exactly what you need. Right now, this premium LG OLED Smart TV, which we named the best TV of 2021. It’s discounted right now, so if you missed it when it went on sale during the July 2022 event, now’s a good time to snap up this excellent TV.
5. Samsung QN90B TVs
We named the excellent Samsung QN90B QLED TV the best overall 85-inch TV of 2022 recently, so we think it’s worth buying at its regular price. On sale, though, and it’s a no-brainer. It’s discounted right now, so it’s a good idea to act fast.
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.

- Save 30% off 43-inch Toshiba C350 Fire TV, which brings it down to $250
8. Insignia Class F20 Series Smart Fire TV
Insignia may be a Best Buy brand, but it was a hit on Prime Day 2022. There were 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 by nearly 50% for the smaller TV.
- Save 47% off 24-inch Insignia F20 Series, which brings it down to $89
