Who has the best TV deals on Black Friday?
Who has the best TV deals on Black Friday? It depends on the type of set you're interested in. Black Friday TV deals are designed to generate excitement around sales, so don't let the hype from every retailer confuse you. The basics of buying a great TV on sale are the same as regular priced models: Know what features you should expect, what extras you may want, and read up on reviews to get a feel for what's good or bad about specific models.
In general, Best Buy has the best TV deals on Black Friday, especially on our favorite brands like LG, Samsung and Sony. Meanwhile, we've seen the best TV deals on more affordable brands like Hisense, TCL and Vizio from Walmart. Amazon typically tries to price-match both Best Buy and Walmart, so be sure to run comparisons if you tend to favor one retailer over another.
Should I wait till Black Friday to buy a TV?
In general, Black Friday TV deals are giving the biggest discounts in this category we've seen all year. So should you wait till Black Friday to buy a TV?
Most of the prices you're seeing today, especially on big-brand models, are the lowest they'll get this season. If you don't act on deals now, the next wave of TV discounts will come before the Super Bowl in February. At that point, however, most TV manufacturers will have announced a new lineup of 2021 TVs.
If a Black Friday TV deal catches your eye, do your research, but chances are you've found a good price. Plus when you purchase now, you'll have a brand-new set for cozying up at home during the holiday season.
Black Friday cheap TVs: Bargain hunters, beware
Watch the fine print on those deals. You may see some TVs selling for $100 or less, but they all have some pretty severe limitations. Small sizes are common, and 32-inches is pretty small compared to the 65-inch models we usually review. (Check out our guide to choosing the right TV size to find the best size for your home.)
Most are lacking smart features or rely on off-brand software with limited app selection. But the biggest gotcha you'll see on Black Friday is low resolution — some don't even offer full HD, opting for 720p resolution. While you may see TVs listed for amazingly low prices — some for less than $100 — don't expect any of the smart functions or 4K panels we see in the best TVs.
The other thing to watch for are refurbished and open box units. These can be a source of enormous savings, but they come with wear and tear before you ever set it up, and warranty coverage may not be as robust as a new model will offer. Refurbs are a good way to save a buck during the rest of the year, but as we get into the holidays, the best deals are on new units.
Just remember the old saying about things that look too good to be true. Not all Black Friday cheap TVs are great deals, even when the prices are enticing.
