136 best Prime Day deals for October 2022 (Day 2): TVs, phones, laptops and more

Update (10/12/22 03:13 ET): The Amazon Prime Day Early Access event continues until the second day. Many of yesterday’s best deals are still in stock, and some have even dropped in price. As always, we continue to update this list regularly throughout the day, scouring to find and highlight the best deals that come along so you don’t have to.

Original post (10/11/22 03:00 ET): Amazon’s Prime Day sales event took place last July, like every year since 2015. The two-day shopping event is exclusively for Amazon Prime members and features thousands of products spanning all categories . This year, the company has another sale event on the calendar for October 11-12 called “Prime Early Access Sale”. Intended to anticipate the holiday shopping season, this is a smaller, albeit still massive, discount event on thousands of items.

To be clear, Amazon remains a behemoth that has done (and continues to do) a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of things worthy of criticism, and Prime Day itself tends to be filled with lots of junk offers and misleading “discounts” that don’t make products much cheaper than they usually are. Much like Prime Day, these offers vary widely in value. But among the tens of thousands of items on sale, there are great bargains on many of the items and categories we cover here at Ars.

We spent several hours scouring the offerings to compile a list of the best values ​​available. Many of the items are devices that we have reviewed well here at Ars, while the rest have been well reviewed on several review sites that we trust. Using tools like Keepa and CamelCamelCamel, we’ve verified that the deals below offer prices that are as low or lower than they have been in the past three to six months. Many of them match the types of discounts you’ll see during other major trade events like Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday.

The full roundup below will be updated periodically throughout each day of the event to reflect changes in stock, price, and additive offers.
