OLED TV deals and Memorial Day

We expect to see some record-breaking OLED TV deals during 2021's Memorial Day TV sales. We're almost certain Vizio's 55-inch OLED TV will drop down to $999 again via Best Buy. The question is — will it hit $899 as it did during Black Friday. Other TVs to watch out for include LG's CX 55-inch 4K OLED, which could hit lower than $1,349. Bookmark this page as we bring you the best OLED TV deals before and during Memorial Day. 

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. 

Make sure to check out our QLED vs. OLED TV guide for more comparisons.

What retailer offers 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 than ranges from Amazon and Walmart to 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 four retailers mentioned above. 

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

During the holiday season, Best Buy had the Vizio 55-inch 4K OLED TV on sale for $899. It was the best OLED TV deal of all time. (Previously, OLED TV deals would max out at $999.95). Chances are we won't see this epic price point again till the next major holiday, but bookmark this page as we'll keep searching for the best OLED TV deals. 

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. 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.
