Q. I’m getting really interested in the TV sales on Black Friday. What does Walmart have planned? What are the five best deals on TVs, in your opinion. — Jennifer, Venice, California.
Jennifer, Walmart has some interesting bargains on televisions during the Black Friday weekend, according to Bfads.net, which annually tracks the holiday shopping deals.
Before I share the specials, Walmart’s Black Friday sale will begin at retail stores on Thanksgiving (November 22) at 6 p.m., and online at Walmart.com at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 21.
Now here are the five best deals the retailer has planned for televisions. (Note: Supplies will be limited so if you like the price, act fast when the sale begins.)
* Sharp 65-inch Smart 4K TV with Roku inside for $398 (model Q73DOU).
The set doesn’t seem to be available now online so it’s unclear what the exact discount is. But $398 for a 65-inch 4K TV is always an interesting value.
* TCL 65-inch Smart TV with Roku inside, also for $398
TCL’s 65-inch sets are going for $200 more now online so you can get a 25 percent discount on Black Friday.
* Hisense 40-inch, 1080p HDTV for $99
Hisense normally sells its 40-inch HDTVs for $199 so it looks like Walmart is cutting the price in half.
* Vizio 60-inch 4K Smart TV (model D60-F3 ) for $498.
Vizio sells this model for $649 at its web site so Walmart is offering a $150 discount.
* Samsung 55-inch 4K Smart TV (model NU6900) for $398.
This set is now available at Best Buy for $479 so you can get an $81 discount from Walmart on Black Friday.
Overall, I wouldn’t call Walmart’s Black Friday deals on televisions particularly eye-popping. But there are some decent discounts if you’re in the market for a new set.
Also worth mentioning: Walmart will sell roughly 50 different 4K Blu-ray titles for $8.96 each on Black Friday in case you’re looking to stock up.
