It feels like every Black Friday TV deal is already live, including nearly every size of The Frame
UPDATE: Nov. 1, 2022, 5:30 p.m. EDT This story has been updated to reflect current TV deals ahead of Black Friday from stores like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, and Target.
BEST 55-INCH TV DEAL:Samsung’s The Frame QLED TV offers 100% color volume and is at its Black Friday price at Best Buy — $999.99 $1,499.99 (save $500)
BEST 65-INCH TV DEAL: The LG 65-inch C1 OLED TV is a fan-favorite gaming TV that’s sitting at record-low pricing at Amazon — $1,496$2,499.99 (save $1,003)
BEST 75-INCH TV DEAL: The Amazon 65-inch Omni 4K Fire TV is one of two Omnis with Dolby Vision, providing boosted color over other budget competitors — $599.99$1,099.99 (save $500)
When it comes to big-ticket items on Black Friday, TVs are always a given. It’s not unrealistic for retailers to devote 10 (or more) pages to TV deals in their official Black Friday ad scans. But each year, it’s becoming less and less necessary to use those ad scans as a means of previewing what you’ll actually buy on Black Friday — because those deals have been live for weeks.
In 2022, stores like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart began casually dropping Black Friday deals as early as mid-October, complete with that store’s version of a Black Friday price guarantee to ensure that waiting isn’t wiser. As always, Best Buy is looking to be the number one TV destination, already offering countless TVs between 43- and 85-inches at Black Friday pricing. Samsung has also gotten a head start by putting almost every size of The Frame at Black Friday pricing weeks before the official shopping holiday.
We’ve pulled those early deals into one big list, categorized by brand and listed in order of size (smallest to largest) and then by price. All newly added deals have been marked with a ✨, and all TVs marked with a ⚡️ are already at their Black Friday price, as marked by select retailers’ early Black Friday sales. Anything with a strikeout was either sold out or no longer available at the sale price at the time of writing, but check back often — we’re updating this page constantly.
If you’ve spent time researching nice TVs, you know why The Frame always pops up. When you’re not watching the layer of quantum dots bump the brightness and color in every juicy scene of House of the Dragon, The Frame itself morphs into a piece of art (or blends in with the wall behind it). The 55-inch model, now under $1,000, has the “Black Friday deal” stamp at Best Buy.
The price of this fan-favorite OLED TV is certainly easier to stomach when it’s over $1,000 off. The C1’s high contrast ratio and pristine blacks make it great for streaming and gaming in dark rooms, plus two more HDMI ports than the B1. And by ditching the two-leg design for one modern central stand, the C1 is the focal point even when turned off.
An 85-inch Sony TV for well under $1,000? That doesn’t happen often. Compared to the slightly-cheaper X80K, the X85K has a higher native contrast ratio that deepens blacks and makes light objects pop — a nice touch in shows with dark shows and movies. It also features HDMI 2.1 bandwidth and Dolby Vision.
Here’s a deal that’s so good, it sounds fake: The 75-inch version of Amazon’s Omni Fire TV is cheaper than the 65-inch one by a long shot — $599.99 compared to $719.99, to be exact. The Omni series is well-reviewed for its bright color from Dolby Vision and easy-to-navigate Fire TV features. Oddly enough, Best Buy is offering this 75-inch version for 36% off while it’s full price at Amazon.
