What you need to know for Black Friday
When is Black Friday?
This is the time of year when everyone’s searching for the best Black Friday deals, so make sure you know what’s happening, and when. Black Friday sales at brick and mortar stores have traditionally begun at midnight on the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 24th, in 2023) and run through the following Monday, often known as Cyber Monday (November 27th, in 2023). Online, though, many brands start offering deals and discounts days or even weeks before this.
What deals should I expect on TVs?
Since TVs tend to be one of the most popular types of Black Friday tech deals, you should expect a glut of highly discounted TVs from brands large and small, ranging from 32-inch bedroom wall-style TVs to 85-inch monsters.
What kind of TV deals did they have last year?
Last year saw deals and offers from big box stores like Target, Best Buy, and Walmart, and online retailers like Amazon, with brands such as Sony, Vizio, Samsung, LG, and more going for hundreds of dollars off their regular asking price.
How to get a good deal on a TV on Black Friday
When it comes to getting a decent Black Friday deal, there really is no substitute for knowing which brands you like and following them closely in the run-up to Thanksgiving. Sales announcements can come at any time, so signing up for any email lists they may have can bring some peace of mind, as it’s the surest way to not miss something. Setting up Google alerts, or following the brands you like on social media are also options. With electronics, it’s also a good idea to search specifically for the model number of the item you want, to make sure you’re definitely getting the right product.
How to choose the best TV for you
Measure in advance
It’s no good getting a massive TV only to find it won’t fit in the space you’ve been eyeing. Remember, TV screens are measured diagonally from corner to corner, so take that into account.
Check the warranty and return policy
Be sure that the TV is covered by warranty for as long as possible, and that the returns process isn’t needlessly complicated.
With so many different stores offering deals on TVs, it’s worth checking them all to get the best possible price.
Check the model number
Black Friday televisions are often seriously cheap, but the big secret is that manufacturers often make bargain TVs that look like their popular models—yet aren’t quite the same as the ones for sale year-round. If you’re eyeing a particular television, make note of the model number. Then, when deals come up, compare the discounted model number to make sure you’re getting the same product.
Where to find Black Friday deals on TVs
Along with all the brands mentioned above, you can find good Black Friday deals on TVs at most big box and online electronics stores, including Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy. Check also brand sites for Samsung and LG.
