Top 10 TV Black Friday Deals of 2019
Our Favorite Black Friday TV Deal
65″ Vizio Class V-Series 4K Ultra HD 2160P HDR Smart TV
Price: $398 (was $528)
It’s not on Walmart’s Black Friday cover, but we like this deal on a Vizio V-Series. The size is right, the price is better, and the specs are pretty good. It has a refresh rate of 120Hz and comes with Chromecast built-in. It works with Apple AirPlay, too. Plus, unlike many TVs made just for Black Friday, we actually have a pretty solid idea of how good this TV is – buyers at both Walmart and Best Buy have given it just shy of 5 stars.
The Black Friday TV Deal Worth Camping Out For
58″ Insignia LED 2160p Smart 4K UHD TV with HDR, Fire TV Edition + Free Amazon Echo Dot
Price: $199.99 (was $479.99)
Where: Best Buy
This is the TV that Best Buy wants you to line up for, and between the price, the Fire TV streaming platform with built-in Alexa, and the free bonus Echo Dot, we think they’re on to something.
Best Black Friday TV Deal for Overall Value
65″ Class Vizio M Series 4K UHD Quantum Color LED LCD TV
Price: $599.99 (was $629.97)
The Vizio M series has gotten rave reviews from nearly every tech reviewer under the sun. That “Quantum Color” is Vizio’s version of Samsung’s highly coveted QLED, and even at full price it’s at a stunningly affordable price point for that technology. It’s compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, AirPlay, and Siri.
Best Black Friday TV under $500
With a $500 budget, you’ll find the most bang for your buck at BJ’s with this set from LG. You’ll get 65 inches, an effective refresh rate of 120Hz, compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, and a rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars from reviewers. Either log in with your BJ’s membership or select “1-Day Online Pass” to create a free log-in in order to view this deal and proceed checkout.
Best Black Friday TV under $300
65 inch Philips Class 4K Ultra HD (2160p) Android Smart LED TV
Price: $278 (was $499)
If your budget is a little tighter, you can still find a solid TV, just with fewer features. This Philips model is front and center on the cover of Walmart’s Black Friday ad, and the doorbuster price point indicates that it may sell out. It’s an Android TV, so it works with your Google Home.
Best Black Friday Deal on a Large TV
70″ Samsung LED 6 Series 2160p Smart 4K UHD TV with HDR
Price: $549.99 (was $899.99)
Where: Best Buy
This 70-inch Samsung 6 Series has earned 4.7 out of 5 stars from reviewers, and the specifications give a clue as to why. In addition to excellent contrast and HDR, it has a native refresh rate of 120Hz.
Best Black Friday Deal on a Medium TV
Can you believe we’ve landed in an era where a 55 inch qualifies as a medium size? Even if we’re pushing the definition a bit, we think this TCL set is worth it. It may not have the cachet of a premium brand, but it’s hard to ignore the 120Hz refresh rate, 3 HDMI ports, and the Roku smart platform. This TV delivers great value for the price.
Best Black Friday Deal on a Small TV
In the small TV category, we like this 40 inch onn. from Walmart. It’s only 1080p compared to the 2160p that’s standard on the larger sets we mention, and the refresh rate is just 60Hz. So it may not win any specification contents, but if you’re looking for a small set for your bedroom or for the kids, this one is worth considering.
Best Black Friday TV with All the Bells and Whistles
How does a 50% discount on an outstanding 75-inch TV with QLED sound? When you’re in the market for a QLED set, it’s hard to choose wrongly. Proving the point, this set has a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars from buyers, has an incredible motion rate of 240Hz, 4 HDMI ports, compatibility with all your favorite voice assistants, and an “Ambient Mode” that blends in with your home decor when not in use – no more big black rectangles hiding your walls! And it’s 50% off!
The Cheapest Black Friday TV Deal Online
We won’t lie, this is not our favorite TV deal. Not even close. Most of the time, you can buy a better TV for just a few more dollars. But we know that some of the Black Friday faithful will be looking for the cheapest TV available, period. And this Polaroid is it – the least expensive TV we’ve spotted in the Black Friday ads this year.
Tips for Buying a TV on Black Friday
Amazon probably will have a super cheap TV deal. Just go ahead and strike that cheap Amazon TV off your list now. We don’t know when it will be online, and it will sell out in mere seconds once it is. For more context on why we’re not crazy about this deal, check out our write up on how Amazon’s Black Friday sale works.
When buying a television, we recommend using a credit card for your purchase for the extra warranty protection that credit cards often provide on electronics. Check out our list of the best credit cards for Black Friday shopping to find one that’s right for you.
Is the TV you’re considering compatible with the smart devices you already own? If you buy a Fire TV, but all you’ve got at home is a Google Assistant, you won’t be able to use hands-free navigation features.
Finally, compare technical specifications, especially on doorbuster. A TV may say it has an effective refresh rate of 120Hz, but the native refresh rate is still 60Hz. A high native refresh rate is always superior to one that’s enhanced. Likewise, not all 4K sets are 2160p, so may attention to the pixel count.
