We're into the second day of Amazon Prime Day TV deals and there are still plenty of big savings to be made on a wide range of 4K TVs from all the usual suspects. But remember, the Prime Day deals end at midnight tonight.

We have seen deals on 4K HDR sets from Samsung, Sony and LG, to budget contenders from TCL, Vizio, Sceptre, Toshiba and others. And thanks to Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial, there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership.

But whether you're hunting down an OLED, QLED, Neo QLED, LED or LCD panel, you'll need to be careful. 

Plenty of offers aren't as good as they first appear, and cheap isn't always cheerful. Stick with us and we'll guide you to the very best Prime Day TV deals...

Amazon does offer non-Prime members a good array of TV deals, but if you want to shop the deepest discounts you'll need an Amazon Prime subscription. The good news is that Amazon typically offers free trials of this service in the run-up to Prime Day. You're not locked into a contract, either, so you can cancel at any time.

The retail giant will once again offer Prime members £10 credit to spend on Prime Day when they spend £10 on small business products in Amazon’s store between the 7th and 20th June 2021. More than 300,000 sellers globally are included in the promotion – more than twice as many as last year.

It's also worth remembering that most major retailers operate price-matching policies. That means you'll see plenty of unofficial 'Prime Day' TV deals pop up at Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Crutchfield. So whether you're after a crisp 4K HDR picture or a TV with exceptional streaming smarts, we'll be crunching the number to bring you the best Prime Day TV deals from all the top electronics retailers.

What Prime Day TV deals can you expect in 2021?

From Monday 7th June 2021, "popular devices" such as the Echo, Fire TV and Ring will be discounted by up to 50 per cent. Indeed, the deals have already kicked off with four months of Amazon Music Unlimited free for new subscribers and 50 per cent off selected movies and TV shows for Prime Video subscribers.

As for TVs, Amazon carries a great selection of premium TVs from brands such as Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic. Last year, we saw $1500 slashed off the 65-inch LG OLED65C9 4K OLED TV, a 2019 What Hi-Fi? award-winner no less. And how's this for a discount: $3000 off the whopping 77-inch Sony XBR-77A9G 4K OLED.

We saw plenty of major markdowns when it came to budget TVs, too. The superb 55-inch LG 55in 65SM8100AUA 4K UHD Smart LED TV was just $700 – around $500 off the MSRP. We also spotted a host of '50% off' deals, mostly on cheaper TVs.

We fully expect Amazon to pick up where it left off last October, and with the PS5 and Xbox Series X now on the scene, we could see some huge discounts on the best gaming TVs. We might even see a deal or two on Samsung's first-ever crop of Neo QLED Mini LED TVs. Here's hoping.

Last but not least, it's well worth keeping an eye out for this year's time-limited 'Lightning' deals. The criteria for these deals are as follows: 

1. At least 20% or $50 (approx. AU$80) less than the current site price.

2. Must match/beat the lowest price of the year.

3. Strong sales history.

4. 3.5+ star rating.

Lightning deals typically last around 24 hours but some can go out of stock in just a few hours. If you're after an affordable TV with a crystal clear LED screen and plenty of apps, keep an eye on Amazon's deals page.
