Prime Day FAQ

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Although Amazon hasn’t specified exact dates just yet, the retailer has confirmed that Prime Day will run sometime in July. Last year’s 48-hour sale event occurred on July 11th and 12th, while Prime Day 2022 ran from the 12th through the 13th. 

Assuming Amazon doesn’t make any drastic changes, it seems likely that the sale will be scheduled for either the week of July 8th or the week of July 15th. We’ll update this page as soon as we learn more. 

What TV deals can I expect during Prime Day?

Outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Amazon’s Prime Day sale is arguably the best time of the year to buy a new smart TV. Mainstream brands from LG and Samsung to Insignia and onn. will be dropping historic discounts on their most popular models, so if you can wait until next month to order a smart TV, we recommend it. 

Do I need to be a Prime member?

Prime Day is reserved exclusively for Prime members, so if you want to take part in the sale, you’ll need to sign up. Fortunately, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial that you can cancel at any time, so if you don’t want to join for good, you could feasibly sign up on July 1st, enjoy all of the Prime Day festivities, and cancel once the sale ends without paying a dime. 

If you don’t want to join Prime or take advantage of the free trial, the goods news is that many of Amazon’s biggest competitors are likely to offer rival sales that run concurrent to Prime Day without requiring a membership. Needless to say, we’ll be sharing all of the best deals from across the web during those 48 hours, not just Amazon’s offerings. 

What should I look for in a smart TV?

When you’re shopping for smart TVs, you’ll immediately notice that manufacturers throw a bunch of impressive-sounding jargon in your face to make their models seem more appealing. Some of this information is actually important, while other details are just filling space. To cut through the noise, we’ve gathered a few of the most important things to worry about when making your final decision. 

  • 1. Resolution: Although TVs with 8K resolution are starting to be released, they’re quite expensive, and most TV shows and films aren’t made to support that resolution anyway. For now, you can save some money and have a nearly-identical experience by going with a 4K TV. If you want all of your favorite shows and films to look as good as possible, look for a set with 4K upscaling.  
  • 2. Refresh rate: To put it simply, a TV’s refresh rate will affect how smooth and lifelike moving images appear on your display, whether you’re watching live sports or playing video games. 60Hz is generally fine for smaller TVs, but 120Hz is even better, especially if your TV is larger than 60 inches. Some TVs may even come with a game optimization mode that boosts the refresh rate up to 240Hz. 
  • 3. OLED vs. LCD: Despite all of the many proprietary varieties touted by manufacturers (QLED, ULED, etc), all you need to know is that smart TVs are broken down into two categories: LCD and OLED. LCD technology is generally found in more-affordable TVs and looks pretty great most of the time. If you can afford it, however, OLED makes a big difference in larger TVs, with consistently richer colors and better contrast. Technologies such as Samsung’s “QLED” and Hisense’s “ULED” are basically just marketing terms used to describe the companies’ proprietary takes on LCD. Rule of thumb: if you have over $1,000 to spend on a TV, go OLED; otherwise, an LCD with 4K support should be just fine. 
  • 4. Price: Smart TVs are some of the only pieces of tech that haven’t gotten more expensive in recent years. Depending on the size you need, you could probably get away with spending $500 or less on a great 4K TV for your home. Don’t be fooled by all of the high-tech jargon: as long as the reviews seem consistent and the TV comes with 4K resolution, a refresh rate over 60Hz, and three or four HDMI ports, you should be all set. 

What size smart TV should I get?

If you’re trying to figure out which size TV you should buy, the first thing to know is that the size of a TV is determined by measuring one corner of the screen to another. Take a tape measure and hold it “corner to corner” in the space you’re hoping to place your new smart TV and consider how far away you’ll be sitting from the screen. For example, if you’re sitting around six feet away from your TV screen, a 50-inch to 70-inch TV should be sufficient.
