Imagine you finally get the PC of your dreams, whether you bought it prebuilt or put it all together yourself. You love it because it's a beast with a powerful graphics card and storage that will last for years. Everything is slick, and fast, and runs smoothly. But then the best thing you can hook it up to is a display built in the 1980s that you found at a thrift store. None of that glorious power matters one iota if you don't have a computer monitor that's good enough to handle it all! 

Choose to make Amazon Prime Day the event that solves that problem for you. We know there are going to be amazing Prime Day monitor deals, which means finding an amazing screen with outstanding specs that won't empty your wallet. If you're already running on a budget because you dumped everything into your PC, that's okay, too. You'd be surprised what you can squeeze out of a monitor on a budget when you shop smart.

These aren't just deals for PC owners, either. Laptops often need external screens to hook up to. Why bother with a dinky 13-inch laptop display when you could be watching in 1080p or more on something twice the size? Many monitors are great for gaming, too, so you can hook up your Xbox Series X or PlayStation as well. Plus smartphones are so powerful these days a monitor can do them justice as well. Monitors are all about connectivity and variety these days, so don't be afraid to hook up all your favorite devices. 

AMAZON PRIME DAY Monitor Deals: FAQ

When is Prime Day?

We know thanks to an announcement in June that Amazon Prime Day is July 12-13. It is going to be a monstrous two-day sales event featuring thousands of deals. It won't just be computer monitors on sale. We expect to see laptops, TVs, headphones, and all kinds of electronics. This page here, though, is dedicated solely to computer monitors. We know there are going to be plenty of deals on all sorts of displays ranging from budget monitors to UltraWide 4K displays with USB hubs and OLED panels. The feature sets will be different, and the prices will have quite the range as a result, but everything featured on this page will be on sale.

In fact, you don't have to wait until the big day to start saving. Prime Day always starts early, and Amazon is already kicking off the summer sales extravaganza with quite a few ways to save. We've been monitoring (pardon the pun) screen prices for a while, so we know there are deals out there even as you're reading this. We plan to keep this page updated with all the best prices available starting now. 

Do you need Amazon Prime to save?

For the most part, yes. You do need Amazon Prime because Amazon Prime Day is a Prime exclusive event. In particular, you will need it to save at Amazon on the big day. If you don't have Prime already, you should grab the 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) because it will cover you through the middle of July and give you all the same benefits as a paying Prime member.

Whether or not you choose to continue the membership after the trial ends is up to you, and you can cancel it at any time. However, with all the benefits, including free two-day shipping, streaming on Prime Video, and exclusive deals that last long after Prime Day ends, you'll probably get a lot out of it.

That being said, Amazon will not be the only retailer with deals on and around Prime Day. Best Buy, Walmart, Dell, Microsoft, and plenty of other popular online retailers want to get in on the action as well. We will be keeping an eye on those stores for fantastic monitor deals, so you might be able to find what you're looking for without a Prime membership at all. 

Amazon Prime 30-day free trial (opens in new tab)

It's hard to beat the sort of benefits Prime has, which includes all sorts of shipping options from free two-day shipping to same-day shipping and even two-hour shipping if you're lucky. Plus you can stream Prime Video, get free video games, and even subscribe to your favorite Twitch streamer for free.

Amazon Prime Day monitor deals: What to Expect

Like most electronics, computer monitors come in all shapes and sizes. Subsequently, so do the deals. We've seen budget screens for less than $200 go on sale and huge screens worth thousands drop by a couple hundred all on their own. You can expect to see small portable screens, ultra-wide monitors that give you all the real estate you need in one display, and gaming monitors with adaptive sync and high refresh rates.

We're not talking about no-nothing displays here, either. Look for many of your favorite brands or at least the big names you're sure to recognize. You'll find deals from LG, Dell, Asus, Samsung, and plenty of others here. Many of those deals will come straight from the individual websites, too, including discounts on Alienware monitors at the Dell online store and other ways to save. Especially be on the lookout for limited-time deals, bundles, and coupon code savings from the smaller sites like HP because that's how those sites tend to pass along the savings. 

If you're in the market for a computer monitor, the main thing you need to establish is how much you want to spend. We fully expect to see monitors at every price range, so you can get what you need to fit your budget. Look no further than this page for the best deals available right now.
