When it comes to TV sales, most people think that Black Friday deals are the be-all, end-all, and that the best deals only happen on November 25th. That’s because for years, the day after Thanksgiving was the epicenter of TV discounts and would often feature door sales that would see 55-inch or 65-inch TVs for under $500.
Luckily, in 2022, you don’t have to wait to find the best Black Friday TV deals — they’re here now, and they’re incredible.
However, sorting through all the deals to pick the best can be a challenge, so to help you find the best TV deals available right now, I’ve rounded up the best I could find – from the cheapest LED-LCD TVs to the best of the discounts on the latest QD-OLED models – and have collected them below.
I’ll keep looking and adding deals as they pop up, but feel free to drop me a line on Twitter or email me if you see some great deals and need some feedback.
The cheapest deal? This 24-inch smart TV costs just $109
Cheap TVs aren’t always recommended, but if you’re buying a TV as a gift for someone who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles, this 720p Fire TV comes with a plethora of streaming services and costs just $109.
What you get in this deal is an Amazon Fire TV with a voice remote that lets you search for shows using just your voice. It’s a little small at just 24 inches and tops out at 720p resolution, but that’s not uncommon for this size.
If you want something great cheap, you won’t find anything cheaper.
Going big? This 75-inch Samsung TV is $579 at Best Buy
The best part about Black Friday TV shopping is finding a 75-inch TV on sale for an incredibly low price. And that’s exactly what we found with the 75-inch TV690T.
For just $579 at Best Buy, you get a huge LED 4K Smart TV. It uses direct LED lighting (better than edge-lit) and supports HDR. If you want to connect it to a smart home system, the TV supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, plus you can stream content from your Apple device with AirPlay 2. For the size, it’s hard to find a lower price.
Do you want a smart TV? This 43-inch Amazon Fire TV costs just $219 at Amazon

It’s not just big 75-inch TVs and OLEDs that are discounted for Black Friday. If you’re shopping on a budget this holiday season, there are plenty of savings on starter kits.
For example, this Insignia 43-inch F30 4K TV is on sale for $219 at Amazon (opens in a new tab). That’s an $80 savings over the full retail price of $299. This is a great choice if you need a second TV for an extra bedroom or office space, but it will get the job done in almost any situation. It packs full 4K Ultra-HD resolution, as well as easy access to all the best streaming services. Plus, you can control the entire TV with your voice, thanks to the integrated Alexa feature.
Don’t need 4K? This 40-inch Hisense Smart TV costs even less
Although 4K is the new de facto resolution for high-end streaming content, most cable content is only broadcast in Full HD. If you’re someone who doesn’t feel ready to jump on the 4K bandwagon yet and would be happy with a 40-inch screen size, then Hisense A4G on sale at Best Buy for $179 (opens in a new tab) might be for you.
Without having tried this one for ourselves, we can’t say we know how it would perform – but the specs seem fine for the price. The speakers are likely to be on the weaker side and the VIDAA smart platform is not often seen here in the US so it is likely that some apps are missing, but the core features are all there.
Looking for OLED? This Sony Bravia OLED is under $1,000
The rate of OLED TV deals continues to roll with this great deal on the Sony A80J OLED TV from last year. The 55-inch model is down to almost a thousand at Best Buy from its regular price. There’s a big price drop and a big discount to start the week.
What we love about Sony’s OLED TVs are their excellent processors capable of delivering excellent color accuracy and motion contrast, as well as their built-in Google TV smart platform. No, they’re not as bright as the Samsung QLED, but we’d argue that their image performance is just as good, if not better.
How about the best OLED? Score the award-winning LG C2 OLED at a huge discount
(opens in a new tab)
We love the LG C2 OLED here at Tom’s Guide, so it’s great to see it slashed in price ahead of the Black Friday deal season.
The LG C2 OLED tops our list best tvs. And that’s why you’ll definitely want to take advantage of this deal on the LG C2 65” 4K OLED TV, which is currently 57% off its regular price at Walmart. For context, that’s over $2,000 off!
What makes the C2 OLED a great pickup truck? Top-class performance, tons of connectivity options, and great gaming features all come together in a sleek package. It’s a great mix of price and performance, making it an all-around winner.
The number 1 TV deal? This QD-OLED that is $1,200 off the MSRP
Want to upgrade to a QD-OLED display? Amazon has a great deal on the Samsung S95B OLED, Samsung’s first QD-OLED TV.
Now you can get $1,200 off the Samsung S95B at Amazon (opens in a new tab) for the 65-inch QD-OLED version, dropping from $2,997 to $1,897. For a TV that’s only six months old, that’s a great price — and the lowest we’ve yet seen, according to shopper-friendly website CamelCamelCamel (opens in a new tab).
The Samsung S95B currently holds a spot on our list of the best TVs of 2022 as well as the best OLED TVs due to its innovative QD-OLED panel.
Want a QLED without breaking the bank? This Amazon Omni TV is now $599
Unlike LED-LCD technology, QLED TVs promise a wider color gamut and better brightness and contrast, but they can be expensive. But that’s not the case with this 65-inch Amazon Omni 4K TV.
Right now you can get the Amazon 65″ Omni 4K QLED TV for $599 (opens in a new tab), which is a cool savings of $200. Still, cheap doesn’t have to mean frugal, as the TV offers HDR10/HLG/HDR10+ Adaptive/Dolby Vision IQ support, a full array of local dimming and four HDMI ports (one HDMI 2.1 with eARC). You also get Alexa support built-in.
You’ll have to make do with the 60Hz refresh rate panel, but other than that, this TV is definitely worth a look.
Another LG OLED TV at a great price!
LG TVs are always heavily discounted around Black Friday, so we have yet another OLED set to highlight.
Right now, the 65-inch LG A2 OLED is $1,196 at Amazon (opens in a new tab). That’s a healthy savings of $500; you could get a PS5 or Xbox Series X for that.
This is an entry-level OLED, so you won’t get a 120Hz refresh rate. But at this size and with LG’s reputation for making excellent OLED TVs, this is a discount you won’t want to ignore.
This Sony Bravia 65-inch TV is one of Sony’s best for $999
This deal checks all the boxes for me. This is a 2022 TV and one of Sony’s best models. It is equipped with Google TV and supports Dolby Vision. It’s a Full Array LED-LCD, not edge-lit. And it retails for under $1,000.
The X90K has been highly rated, and this is reflected in nearly 200 reviews on Best Buy’s website with an average rating of 4.6 stars. 65-inch might not be the biggest model available for Black Friday, but you get one of the best TVs in a fairly large size for under a grand. I’m all for it.
