You heard me. While Amazon Prime Day is in full swing, with discounts running across all sorts of streaming sticks, screens, and smart gadgets, some of the best TV deals aren't even part of the Prime Day promotions.

With the Prime Day deals ending at midnight EST, there isn't much time to nab a good Prime Day TV deals, but it's worth taking a moment to assess the models discounted at Walmart and Best Buy in their competing sales. 

There are OLED TVs like the Vizio H1 down to just $999 (opens in new tab), brand-new Samsung Neo QLED screens seeing $300 price cuts (opens in new tab), and budget Roku TVs that have inched under $200 in a new discount (opens in new tab).
