LG G2 77" 4K OLED TV: was $3,799 now $3,599 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The new LG G2 is the brightest OLED TV we've tested. In our LG G2 OLED TV review (opens in new tab), we called it the ultimate QD-OLED TV rival. It offers about 30% higher brightness than its predecessor and boasts new gaming features, AI-boosted sound quality, and support for just about every HDR format you can think of. LG also claims this panel prevents burn-in, though we haven't put that to the test just yet. When it comes to performance, this TV is currently the king of OLED TVs. 

Why should I buy an OLED TV? 

Simply put: No TV technology can rival the performance of an OLED TV. OLED, or organic light-emitting diode, represents a completely different kind of display. No backlight is required in an OLED TV because the organic pixels emit their own light when activated. So each pixel can be completely turned on or off separately.

That means you don't get that afterglow and light leakage that you typically see in LCD TVs. As a result, OLED TVs deliver intensely deep blacks that even the best QLED TVs can't rival. Sure, QLED TVs can be brighter than OLED TVs, but for the most pristine picture possible: OLED is still king.

Tips on finding the best OLED TV deals

Unfortunately, there's no single retailer that offers the best OLED TV deals. Instead, it's a mix of retailers that includes Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Newegg. If you're shopping for an OLED TV, our best tip is to compare that model's price across various sites, including the retailers mentioned above. 

That said, Amazon tends to undercut Best Buy's prices, even if only by a few bucks. For instance, on numerous occasions we've seen the LG 55-inch CX OLED on sale for $1,399 at Best Buy, whereas Amazon would have it on sale for $1,349. Or in some instance, Amazon would bundle a free LG XBOOM speaker, whereas Best Buy wouldn't offer any freebies. 

What are the cheapest OLED TV deals we've seen?

During the 2022 holiday season, Best Buy had the LG 48-inch A2 OLED TV on sale for $569, which remains the least-expensive OLED we've ever seen. The 55-inch model also dropped to an all-time low of $799. Although the A2 is LG's entry-level OLED, it's still an incredible bargain. Premium OLED TVs were also on sale. The 42-inch LG C2 dropped to $999, whereas the Samsung S95B 55-inch 4K OLED hit $1,449 ($650 off). 

Are refurbished OLED TV deals worth it?

While there are refurb OLED TV deals you can take advantage of, the savings aren't as high as you may think. For instance, the LG 55-inch B8 OLED TV usually sells for $1,199 and has dropped as low as $999. Amazon sometimes sells the refurb LG 55-inch B8 OLED TV for $999 (opens in new tab). Sure, it's $200 off, but we've already seen new models hit this price point before, albeit, not very often. 

More importantly, you only get a 90-day warranty and if you dislike anything about your refurb TV (perhaps it might have more nicks and scratches than you like) return shipping might fall on your, which could quickly get expensive.
