As the unofficial start of the summer, Memorial Day is an excellent opportunity to browse through sales. As one of the country's biggest retailers, we expect Best Buy will offer various deals on everything from TVs to appliances. Make sure to follow our coverage of the month's best sales. 

TVs

TV sale: deals from $89 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Best Buy currently has one of the most epic deals of all time. The retailer has TVs on sale for as low as $89. Keep in mind, the cheap TVs tend to be smaller, 720p models (which are more suitable for a children's room or guest room). However, the sale also includes larger 4K sets. 

Toshiba 32" Fire TV: was $199 now $139 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The Toshiba 32-inch Fire TV is the cheapest smart TV you can buy right now. Although we normally wouldn't recommend a 720p TV, this set is cheap enough that you can place it in a guest room or children's room. It features a voice remote with built-in Alexa, so you get all the features of Amazon's bigger Fire TVs. Best of all, it's at its lowest price ever.

TCL 55" Mini-LED 4K QLED TV: was $749 now $699 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The TCL R646 uses mini-LED backlighting. That results in tighter lighting control to eliminate haloing and offer better brightness where it's needed. The TV also features built-in Google Assistant, 120Hz refresh rate, built-in Chromecast, and Dolby Vision/HDR10/HDR10 Plus/HLG support. 

LG A1 48" 4K OLED TV: was $1,199 now $799 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Streaming

Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite: was $29 now $19 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The new Fire TV Stick Lite is a cheaper version of the Fire TV Stick. Like its pricier counterpart, this 1080p streamer supports HDR, HDR 10, HDR10+, and HLG, but it lacks Dolby Atmos Audio and dedicated volume/power buttons.
