Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is coming up again in October, just a few months after a hot summer Prime Day extravaganza. The date isn't known yet, but this is actually the second time Amazon is having a retail sales event in the year, and the third time Amazon is hosting one in October. Last year's was simply "Prime Early Access Sale." Now, October is still a month away, but there are still some great deals floating around. Amazon and other retailers like Best Buy are still cutting prices on monitors to levels close to what you'd see at the end of the year during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

You can end up saving a bunch of money and unlock new levels of productivity with an extra screen for a laptop or a new and improved display for your desktop. This is especially true since the best 4K and gaming monitors can cost well over $1,000. Even a quality productivity monitor can set you back a few hundred dollars. And portable monitors? They're usually the cheapest option and great for those with limited desk space. We've got some of the savings you can enjoy right here today, and incoming Prime Day laptop Deals and Prime Day SSD deals, too.

Will there be a second Prime Day in 2023?

Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is not to be confused with Amazon Prime Day which happened earlier this year. It's not a second Prime Day in 2023. While the deals you'll see are similar to what you'd find on Prime Day, it's actually a separate event on its own. Prime Day is usually held in the summer, and Prime Big Deals is held at the start of Fall in the United States. We don't have a solid date for Prime Big Deal Days just yet, though.

Prime Big Deal Days vs. Prime Day: What’s the difference?

There's not too much of a difference between Prime Big Deal Days and Prime Day. You'll still be seeing excellent price cuts on all kinds of items from electronics, to clothing, home items, and so much more. It's a great chance to find deals you might have missed out on earlier in the year on Prime Day. And a great chance to get deals on last-gen and current-gen products, too.

Do you need to be a Prime member to save on Prime Big Deals Day?

Yes. Prime Big Deals Day is only for Prime Members. If you're not already a Prime member, you can sign up for a free trial. You'll be upgraded to a paid subscription when the trial period ends. You always can end your subscription early to avoid being charged.

Best portable monitor Prime Day deals

There are many portable monitors that you'll see on Amazon, but you have to be careful of which ones you'll buy on Prime Day. We suggest buying the Asus monitor we've listed above. It's a quality display with USB-A and USB-C ports onboard, with a decent 1080p resolution. It even can be rotated vertically, and it comes with a portable folding case.

We also suggest the MSI Pro. It's a 15.6-inch monitor that features both USB Type-C and mini HDMI inputs. It also has a kickstand that makes using it at multiple angles even easier. You even get built-in speakers. All of this for under $150. Capping things out is the Arzopa G1 Game, it's designed for gamers, since it has a 144Hz refresh rate, and an anti-glare IPS panel, with support for HDR.


Q: How much should you spend?

It really depends on what your needs are and what you're looking for. If you're buying a gaming monitor, you might have to spend above $600, sometimes even higher than that. In gaming monitors, features like AMD FreeSync, Nvidia GSync, fast response times lower than 1ms, and high refresh rates offer 120Hz and higher (beyond the basic 60Hz) are usually extras for the price and can push things closer to $900. If you're buying a productivity monitor, the higher the resolution, the more money you'll pay, but look to spend between $400-$800. Basic FHD resolution monitors tend to be much on the lower and cheaper since there are fewer pixels and room to multitask. It's why we suggest looking for 4K displays at a higher price or even QHD displays for more pixels at a slightly more affordable price. You'll also have to consider that features like integrated webcams, and speakers will bring up the price a bit on most monitors. Ultra-wide monitors, meanwhile, are usually well above $1,000 in price, as all that extra screen space comes with extra cost. The bigger the ultrawide, the lower the price. The smaller, the lower. Portable monitors are the most in-reach monitors in terms of the budget since they're usually under $200, but they're also quite small.

Q: What is the best monitor to buy?

Everyone's needs are different, but we must choose a monitor right now, it will be the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8. This monitor sports an OLED panel. This gives it better accurate color reproduction in your games and other content. The monitor also has a Neo Quantum Processor under the hood, to help with image processing. Other features include the 175Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, and the Samsung Gaming Hub.

Q: What makes a good deal?

This depends on you. Only buy a monitor if the discount is significant and it's a product you'll actually make use of. You might see that some retailers might actually increase their prices ahead of or during Prime Day just to show big discounts. The deals we've mentioned in this post are all ones that we've verified are legitimate. Microsoft Edge offers a price-checking history tool that can show you if a deal is good, showing the price history over time.
