Why buy a monitor this October?
At this point, you might be asking yourself – why should I buy a monitor in October? It’s a good question as, after all, Black Friday monitor deals are just around the corner.
Fortunately, Black Friday isn’t the only time of year that sees big saving on the market’s best gaming and entertainment monitors. Whether you’re looking for a 4K monitor, OLED monitor, mini-LED monitor, or just a high-performance gaming monitor, October should have a deal that suits your exact needs.
Better yet, with Black Friday becoming increasingly competitive, retailers will continue to start listing deals earlier in the year. This year, we could see retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Newegg all release deals in October.
Prime Early Access Sale vs Black Friday
That’s right, Black Friday has a new contender in town – and no, it isn’t the already well-established Cyber Monday event.
No, instead, it’s Amazon’s new Prime Early Access Sale – a two-day event that takes place in October for Prime members. In said event, Amazon will slash thousands of products – some to all-time low pricing – giving consumers a chance to snap up a killer bargain.
While Black Friday is still the largest sales event of the year, Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale is a strong contender for the crown, offering up fantastic deals on everything from gaming monitors to high-end PCs and everything in-between.
Of course, as this is the first run for PEAS, it’s hard to say whether or not the sale will live up to Black Friday. That said, with initial deals already looking incredibly attractive, it’s already seeing plenty of interest from savvy bargain-hunters.
