Several retailers are selling the 55-inch LG C1 OLED TV for $1,296.99 instead of $1,499.99, its lowest price to date.

With CES 2022 having just wrapped, the future looks bright if you’re looking to nab a great TV deal. At CES, many manufacturers — including LG and Samsung — announced new versions of some of their most popular models, ranging from The Frame to LG’s new C2 lineup. That means we’re probably going to start seeing prices fall on last-gen models as newer models become available throughout the rest of the year.

For those looking to pick up a solid deal before the new models arrive, however, fret not, as retailers are already discounting TVs in the run up to the Super Bowl next month. There are currently a number of 4K TVs available to choose from, spanning a wide variety of prices, size configurations, and feature sets. Whether you want a secondary TV for the bedroom or a high-end OLED that’s built for a cinema-like experience, we’ve picked out the best TV deals across four common categories.

The best 4K TV deals for most people

Sony X80J

Sony’s 55-inch X80J TV has Google TV software built-in, so you won’t need to purchase any additional streaming boxes, like an Apple TV or Chromecast. The LED panel also supports HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision HDR, and has four HDMI ports (one of which is HDMI ARC). It’s a relatively low-frills affair, but it seems like a good deal that’s currently available at Best Buy, where various configurations are $200 off. Right now, for example, you can buy the 55-inch for $599.99 instead of $799.99. In addition to free delivery, the retailer is also offering six months of Peacock Premium with each purchase, as well as $50 off a Google Nest Hub smart display and up to $200 off select soundbars. Amazon, Target, Sony, and B&H Photo are also selling the same TV for roughly the same price but without the added incentives.

TCL 6-Series

The TCL 6-Series R635 model is a good option if you are looking to balance price and performance. The R635 model sports a QLED panel, but it goes a step above with Mini LED backlighting, which brings better brightness and contrast. The 55-inch model is currently on sale at Amazon for $699.99 ($250 off), though, we’ve seen the R635 drop to as low as $650 in the past.

If you prefer a larger model, Best Buy is also offering the 65-inch for $1,099.99 ($200 off) and the 75-inch for $1,299.99 ($500 off). Regardless of which configuration you choose, however, Best Buy is also throwing in a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber and $90 off Facebook Portal TV, if you purchase the two together.

Samsung The Frame TV

Samsung’s The Frame blends into your home decor, displaying customizable images that look like a piece of decorative art if its motion sensor detects someone in the room. When turned on, however, it transforms into an HDR-compatible QLED TV with Amazon’s Alexa built-in and support for AirPlay 2. The stylish, 4K TV also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, access to all the popular streaming services, and four HDMI ports.

We saw the 55-inch drop from $1,499.99 to $998, its best price ever, during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sadly, it’s now only about $100 off, with the 55-inch model going for $1,399.99 at Best Buy and $1,397.99 at B&H Photo. The 65-inch, however, is selling for $1,499.99 at Best Buy and Samsung, which is just $2 shy of the all-time low we saw during Black Friday. Best Buy is also taking $90 off of Facebook Portal TV with your purchase, up to $300 off on select soundbars, and offering a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber.

Samsung Frame TV 2018

Samsung The Frame LCD TV (65-inch, 2021)

  • $1,500
  • $2,000
  • 26% off

Samsung’s The Frame is a smart, 4K TV designed to directly blend in with your home’s decor. The QLED panel can seamlessly switch from displaying whatever content it is you’re watching to idle scenes of decorative art. The Frame also boasts HDR, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a motion sensor to ensure someone is there to see its ambient Art Mode.

The best TV deals on a budget

Insignia’s 4K HDR Fire TV Edition

You don’t have to spend a fortune for a 4K TV; spending $500 or less can still net you a TV with good image quality and features. Insignia’s 4K HDR Fire TV Edition model is the perfect case in point, one that supports HDR10, HDMI ARC, and HDMI eArc, among other features.

At the moment, the smaller configurations are discounted at multiple retailers, including the 50-inch model, which you can buy at Amazon for $359.99 instead of $399.99. The 55-inch model is also available at Amazon and Best Buy for $449.99 instead of $549.99, which isn’t technically a sale but rather a recent price drop. Like with other TVs, Buy will also take $90 off of Facebook Portal TV and throw in a month of Philo for $5 (if you’re a new subscriber) with each purchase.

Insignia 4K Fire TV Edition (55-inch)

  • $450

This 2021 model of Insignia’s Fire TV Edition 4K TV includes HDR10 for a more contrast-rich picture. It has three HDMI ports, too, with support for HDMI ARC and eARC, allowing you to send sound through an HDMI cable instead of requiring audio cables.

Toshiba Smart Fire TV Edition

Another Fire TV Edition TV deal happening now is on Toshiba’s 55-inch Smart Fire TV Edition 4K LED, which normally retails for $469.99. As the name might imply, it allows you to stream content from services such as Disney Plus and Netflix, and includes the option to watch live TV. The latest models also tout an Alexa-enabled remote, an easy-to-use interface, and support for both Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10. Right now at Best Buy and Amazon, you can pick up the 55-inch model for $429.99, a modest $40 discount. Best Buy is also throwing in a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV with each purchase, per usual.

TCL Class 4-Series

TCL also has competitively priced televisions, and its 4-Series lineup is one of the more affordable options on the market. The S435 model features a built-in Roku interface, dual-band Wi-Fi, HDR10, and support for all Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. You can currently get the 55-inch model for $349.99 at Best Buy and Walmart, which is $150 less than the usual retail price. Best Buy’s current promotion also includes a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber and $90 off Facebook Portal TV with each purchase.

Amazon Omni Fire TV

Amazon’s first TV, the Omni Fire 4K TV, only just launched a few months ago and starts at $370. The self-branded effort features the ability to query Alexa even when the TV is off, as well as a low input lag and support for two-way video calling. We gave it a 7/10 in our review, while noting how the TV shows great promise thanks to its robust Alexa integration and support for Apple’s AirPlay 2, among other things. At the same time, however, TCL and other similarly priced television makers offer better picture quality.

Right now, Amazon is selling the 55-inch model for $419.99 instead of $559.99, which is just $10 more than the discount we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The 43-inch, meanwhile, is currently on sale for $284.99 instead of $409.99, its best price to date. The larger configurations — which include support for Dolby Vision HDR — are on sale as well, with the 65-inch going for $599.99 instead of $829.99, nearly matching its lowest price to date. If you prefer to shop at Best Buy, the retailer is currently offering comparable sales, along with a month of Philo for $5 (if you’re a new subscriber) and a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV with each purchase.

Amazon Omni Fire TV (55-inch)

  • $420
  • $560
  • 26% off

Amazon’s new Omni Fire 4K TV features built-in microphones for Alexa commands, low input lag, and support for two-way video calling. It also provides access to Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and most major streaming services.

Vizio M7 Series Premium Quantum

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly TV with good picture quality, Vizio’s midrange M7 Series Quantum TV is worthy of consideration, even if it is over $500. The 2021 model sports a 60Hz panel, along with support for Apple’s AirPlay 2, AMD FreeSync, and a variable refresh rate (VRR). It also touts Vizio’s SmartCast system and a built-in Chromecast, allowing you to cast content from your phone and access Netflix, Disney Plus, and all your favorite streaming services.

Right now, Costco is selling the 65-inch configuration for $599.99, its lowest price to date. If you’re not a Costco member, however, GameStop is selling the 55-inch model with a $45 GameStop gift card for $578 ($171 off). You can also pick up the 55-inch model at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy for around the same price, or the 50-inch version at Amazon for $10 less. Best Buy will also throw in a $90 discount on the Facebook Portal when you purchase the two together, along with a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber.

The best deals on OLED TVs

OLED televisions offer the best image quality you can get in a mainstream TV, and many were heavily discounted during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you missed out on those sales, however, you may still have another shot at landing a good deal, as many of the best models are still currently available at a discount.

LG A1 OLED

Right now, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Amazon are discounting various sizes of the LG’s entry-level A1 OLED. The 48-inch model is currently on sale at Amazon for $796.99 instead of $1,199.99, its lowest price to date, and the 55-inch is selling for around $1,097 ($200 off) at B&H Photo, Amazon, and Best Buy, which is also its lowest price ever. Additionally, Best is offering up to $200 off on select soundbars with your purchase, as well as a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV and a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber.

In terms of features, the A1 offers support for both Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as an automatic low-latency mode. Unlike more expensive OLEDs, however, the 4K TV doesn’t come with a slate of advanced gaming features, like those found on LG’s C1 model. It offers a slower 60Hz display and lacks HDMI 2.1, for example, and doesn’t support a variable refresh rate.

LG GX Series OLED

Despite the high price tag, LG’s Gallery Series GX OLED is a good TV for those looking for a more cinematic experience. It includes support for Google Assistant and Alexa, and for those who want to use their TV for gaming, it features Nvidia G-Sync and HDMI 2.1 support, meaning it can take full advantage of the RTX 30-Series cards or next-gen consoles. Right now, you can get the 55-inch model for as low as $1,529.99 ($270 off) at Amazon and B&H Photo.

Vizio OLED

Vizio’s 4K OLED offering is one of the more affordable options if you’re looking for an OLED TV. The manufacturer doesn’t have the same kind of experience in the OLED playing field as LG, sure, but its 55-inch model remains a worthwhile option to consider if you want a high-end viewing experience and HDMI 2.1 ports to display high frame rates from your PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Normally $1,299.99, Vizio’s 55-inch OLED is on sale at Best Buy and Amazon for around $999, matching its lowest price to date. Like with other models, Best Buy is also offering a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV along with a month of Philo for $5 (if you’re a new subscriber) with each purchase.

4K TVs for the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X

Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X can play 4K games with HDR at up to 120 frames per second. So, naturally, if you don’t have a TV that takes full advantage of your console, it might be time to upgrade to one of our recommendations. For the best experience, you’ll want a TV that supports HDMI 2.1.

LG C1 OLED

If you’re looking for an impressive TV, we recommend turning your attention to LG’s C1 line. Like its predecessor, the CX, the 4K C1 touts support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD Freesync technologies, along with a 120Hz refresh rate and low input lag. The main difference between the two is that the C1 is available in an 83-inch variant and features a better processor. It also utilizes a newer interface that makes good use of a settings pane dubbed “Game Optimizer,” which conveniently brings together a host of game-centric settings — refresh rate, latency, etc. — for quicker access.

Throughout the holidays, we saw the 55-inch C1 selling for around $1,296.99 instead of $1,499.99, its lowest price to date. That deal is once again available at various retailers, with Newegg selling it for $1,296.99 with a $75 Visa gift card and a four-year protection plan. It’s also available via BuyDig’s digital storefront on eBay with a $120 eBay credit that will be issued after delivery, or at Amazon, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Best Buy for the same price. As usual, Best Buy is throwing in a $200 discount on select soundbars with each purchase, as well as a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV and a month of Philo for $5 if you’re a new subscriber.

Discounts are available on other configurations as well. Right now, for instance, you can pick up the smaller, 48-inch model for around $1,097 instead of $1,299.99 at Amazon, B&H Photo, and Best Buy. The 65-inch, meanwhile, is also selling for around $1,797 instead of $2,099.99 at Amazon, B&H Photo, and Best Buy. The best deal for the 65-inch configuration is currently on eBay, however, where you can pick it up via BuyDig with a $170 eBay credit that will be issued after delivery.

Samsung Neo QLED QN90A

For a viable OLED alternative, there’s the Neo QLED QN90A. Unlike the LG models above, Samsung’s most recent flagship uses Mini LED backlighting, a technology that allows for better contrast, less “blooming” around white objects on a dark background, and brightness levels that outperform even the best OLED TVs. Like the C1, the QN90A is also built with gamers in mind. The 2021 model features an HDMI 2.1 port and a “Game Bar” that gives you the ability to quickly adjust your screen’s aspect ratio, monitor input lag, and check to ensure settings such as HDR and VRR are active, all of which make for a better gaming experience overall.

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the 55-inch QN90A sold for just shy of $1,300, which remains its lowest price to date and its current sale price at B&H Photo, Best Buy, Samsung, and Amazon. As usual, Best Buy is also throwing in additional incentives, including up to $300 off select soundbars.

Samsung Neo QLED QN90A (55-inch)

  • $1,298
  • $1,800
  • 28% off

Samsung’s Neo QLEDs are the company’s flagships for 2021, which come outfitted with Mini LED backlighting for improved contrast and brightness that better competes with OLED. They also tout HDMI 2.1 and a new Game Bar with shortcuts for features like VRR and aspect ratio.
