Update May 14: The deal has expired and the TV is now selling for $1,296. Make sure to follow our Memorial Day TV sales guide for the best deals this month.  

There are plenty of weekend sales happening now, but if there's only one sale you see — I want this to be the one. 

Right now, you can get the LG 55-inch C2 4K OLED TV on sale for $999 at Walmart. I own this TV and this is the cheapest price I've ever seen for the 55-inch model and one of the OLED TV deals of all time. Alternatively, Amazon has it for $1,196 (via third party) and Best Buy offers it for $1,199. The last time I saw it at this price point the deal lasted less than 24 hours.

Price history: The 55-inch LG C2 OLED has slowly been dropping in price since its launch. Today's deal, however, is the cheapest it's been and a price we may not see again till Memorial Day TV sales kick in or — more realistically — till Prime Day. Previous price lows have been $1,299, $1,199, and $1,096. The current $999 price is an absolute steal for this TV. 

Price comparison: Newegg: $1,296 | Amazon: $1,196 (via third party) | Best Buy: $1,199 | LG: $1,299

Reviews consensus: The LG C2 is the TV you want in your living room. It's that simple. It sits at the top of our best TV guide and gamers will be happy to know we named it one of the best gaming TVs for PS5. In our testing, it offered an impressive display panel, premium design, great gaming features, and a reliable smart TV platform. In our LG C2 OLED review, we said this is the OLED TV you want to own offering a premium entertainment experience. My colleague and managing editor of entertainment/streaming also bought this TV and has loved using it to watch movies like Top Gun: Maverick, Barbarian, and Avengers: End Game.

Buying guides: Best TV, best OLED TVs, best gaming TVs for PS5

Buy it if: You want the best deal on the best TV in the market right now. I recently called this TV one of the best tech purchases I've ever made. But don't take my word for it. Our TV editor Nick Pino calls this TV "the year's set to beat." It offers fantastic picture quality for the price and at $999 — it's just amazing. Finally, while the LG C3 is starting to hit store shelves, the differences are minimal. (Check out our LG C3 OLED vs LG C2 OLED comparison).

Don't buy it if: You're not ready to drop $999 or more on a new OLED TV. In that case, we recommend the entry-level 48-inch LG A2 OLED, which regularly sells for as low as $599 on major holidays. We'd also skip it if you don't like TVs that are very glossy
