The Best Black Friday TV Ads: A Great Year for Big Screen Deals
Published November 18, 2013
The Black Friday ads have been unleashed and the shopping season has commenced! But with so many Black Friday TV sales to process, how do you know which deals are worth your time? Our team of deal experts has been analyzing the ads 24/7, separating the good TV deals from the bad. Below, we've chosen some of the best Black Friday TV deals yet! And remember to come back as more ads are released and we update our list.
Best 32" to 42" HDTV Ads
- Insignia NS-39D40SNA14 39" 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV for $170 at Best Buy
While it's not quite 42", this 39" Insignia could still be the cheapest HDTV we've ever seen in the 39" - 42" category. This Thanksgiving Day deal will start at 6 pm, catering to both online and in-store shoppers.
- Element ELCHW402 40" 1080p LCD HDTV for $178 at Walmart
Not only is this TV $2 cheaper than our prediction for this size category, but as we expected, it's even cheaper than 32" TVs. Needless to say, this will be the rock-bottom price to beat for 42" LCDs.
- Samsung UN40EH5300 40" 60Hz 1080p Smart LED HDTV for $397 at Walmart
At $397, the Samsung UN40EH5300 is considerably pricier than most Black Friday TVs you'll see in this size category, but for this specific model (which is a tried and true set, according to our readers), it's an all-time low by $71.
Best 46" to 52" HDTV Ads
- Element 50" 1080p LED HDTV for $229 at Target
50" is the new 42" and this 50" TV is poised to break all records and become the cheapest 50" HDTV we've ever seen. It even beats our previous Editors' Choice TV for this size category by $150.
- Emerson 50" 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV for $288 at Walmart
While it's not as cheap as the above-mentioned Element, this 50" HDTV gets honorable mention for being the second-cheapest 50" LCD 1080p HDTV we've seen.
- Vizio 50" 120Hz 1080p Smart LED HDTV for $498 at Sam's Club
We've seen 50" LCDs priced comfortably below the this sale price before (just look at our two examples above), but never have we seen a Vizio TV in this size category fall below $518!
- Sharp Aquos LC-SDLE442U 50" 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV for $498 at Dell Home
Not a fan of Vizio? Dell Home will offer a 50" Sharp Aquos HDTV for the same price as the above-mentioned Vizio. That makes this TV the cheapest 50" Sharp we've ever seen (though only by $2).
Best 55"+ HDTV Ads
This list is just an initial offering of Black Friday's best TV ads; noticeably absent are 3D TVs and 46" LCDs, though we hope to see bargain-bin prices on those sets soon. Be sure to check our Black Friday deals hub for updates on the latest Black Friday TV ads.
