While Memorial Day is best known for selling gadgets, furniture, and outdoor gear to get you ready for summer, some retailers have also cut TV prices to encourage living room upgrading.
Finding a good deal is tough, of course, with so many TVs out there – and price isn’t always a quality indicator (see our best TV guide if you don’t believe us). Whether you’re looking for a small, inexpensive model or a giant 75-inch giant for your home theater, there are some great discounts out there right now. Here are the sales worth checking out on this Memorial Day.
55-inch Sony A8H OLED TV ($ 1,498, originally $ 1,898; amazon.com)
55 inch Sony A8H OLED TV
Our Sony A8H, voted Best Luxury TV last year, uses a beautiful OLED panel with pixel-perfect black levels for an image that has to be seen to be truly believed. While it’s a year behind the A90J listed below, it’s still one of the best TVs you can buy today, and it’s available at a much cheaper price than its successor – not least thanks to a $ 400 discount this week .
86-inch Samsung TU9000 ($ 1,797, originally $ 2,199; amazon.com)
86-inch Samsung TU9000
The Samsung TU9000 is one of Amazon’s deals this week, and while it looks expensive at first glance, it’s actually a great price considering the massive size of this panel. At 86 inches, it’s the biggest TV we’ve had for sale this week, and at $ 400 off – just make sure you have a wall mount strong enough to hold this pup up.
77-inch LG CX OLED TV ($ 3,049, originally $ 4,996; amazon.com)
77-inch LG CX OLED TV
Can’t decide between that top-notch OLED image and a huge panel? Amazon has you got this great deal: With 77 inches of gorgeous blacks and stunning HDR for hundreds of dollars less than usual price, you can’t go wrong with LG’s best-selling CX. It might be last year’s TV, but it has the latest features, including all the HDMI 2.1 features you need for next-gen gaming.
75-inch Sony X950H ($ 1,998; originally $ 2,599; amazon.com)
75-inch Sony X950H
If you’re in a well-lit room, an LED TV like the Sony X950H might be a better choice than one of LG’s OLEDs because of its ability to get brighter. The Sony X950H may not be intended for the gaming features of this year’s X90J, but thanks to the annual ritual of clearing out old inventory, it’s close to the same price point – and its superior HDR performance is good enough to make up for any improvements it lacks in 2021 . In fact, I’m so into this television that it’s sitting in my home theater right now.
55-inch Sony X90J LED TV ($ 1,199, originally $ 1,499; bestbuy.com)
55-inch Sony X90J LED TV
Sony’s X900 series (renamed X90 for 2021) has long been one of the best high-end TVs you can get for a reasonable price. Powered by Google TV, the X90J offers local full array dimming for deep blacks, solid HDR performance for a popping picture, built-in Google Assistant voice control, and Sony’s latest Bravia XR processor that offers outstanding motion and upscaling performance . There are even plans to get some HDMI 2.1 gaming features if you want to buy the new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X.
55-inch Sony A90J OLED TV ($ 2,799, originally $ 2,999; bestbuy.com)
55 inch Sony A90J OLED TV
When we tested televisions last year, Sony’s OLED was our pick for the best luxury TV. This year’s A90J is even better, with a higher peak brightness than last year’s model for even more punchy HDR highlights, along with the latest Sony processor that allows even low-quality cable streams to look better. It’s not a cheap TV, but this week’s $ 200 discount may help alleviate the sting.
70-inch Samsung 7 series ($ 699, originally $ 749; bestbuy.com)
70 inch Samsung 7 series
If you’re looking for a monster-sized TV with no monster-sized pricing, the Samsung 7 Series is one of the most affordable big-screen sales we’ve seen this week. The 70-inch version costs less than $ 50, and while it doesn’t come with QLED colors or local dimming like the high-end Samsung models, it’s a good deal for a TV that has a large living room fills out.
55-inch Hisense H8G ($ 503, originally $ 529; bestbuy.com)
55-inch Hisense H8G
If you’re on a tight budget and looking for a TV that looks especially good for home theater recordings in dark rooms, the Hisense H8G has the most important features at an affordable price. Local full array dimming can produce an HDR image with more pop than edge-lit TVs. Thanks to the wide color gamut, all built-in streaming services allow you to see more vivid colors in supported content. Oh, and it can automatically switch to low latency mode when you’re playing too.
55-inch Vizio V-Series ($ 370, originally $ 439; bestbuy.com)
55 inch Vizio V series
The reasonably priced V-series from Vizio does not quite match the aforementioned mid-range range from Hisense due to the lower peak brightness in HDR and the lack of local dimming LEDs. It’s currently a whopping $ 70 less than list price, though, so the bang for your buck is hard to beat – especially if you plan on watching TV shows regularly in a well-lit room rather than a movie-oriented home theater.
43-inch F30 badge ($ 279, originally $ 429; bestbuy.com)
43 inch insignia F30
At just $ 279, this is one of the cheaper TVs you can find on the Best Buy Memorial Day sale. And although it’s a bit smaller at 43 inches, it’s perfect for a room where you don’t have that much space but still want all the standard apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney +. Since Insignia uses Amazon’s Fire OS as its intelligent platform, there are also Alexa microphones built in, which is fantastic at the price.
55-inch LG CX OLED ($ 1,396, originally $ 1,796; bhphotovideo.com)
B&H Photo Video
55-inch LG CX OLED
Amazon may have the 75-inch version of this TV on offer, but B&H Photo Video is offering the 55- and 65-inch versions at discounted prices, in case you want those gorgeous OLED blacks and next-generation gaming features into one higher price want affordable size.
85-inch Sony X900H ($ 2,198, originally $ 2,598; bhphotovideo.com)
B&H Photo Video
85-inch Sony X900H
If this year’s X90J is a little on the expensive side and you want a screen as big as you can fit through the door, B&H Photo Video is also making a screaming deal on the 85-inch version of last year’s X900H. This TV is known for its excellent value for money. With a $ 400 discount, you know it will be worth every penny.
55-inch Samsung Q90T QLED TV ($ 1,599, originally $ 1,799; samsung.com)
55 inch Samsung Q90T QLED TV
Unlike many of the other LED TVs on this list, which have a few dozen “local dimming zones” for deeper blacks, Samsung’s impressive Q90T has nearly 100, meaning you get an image that appears with no haze around the edges. Combine that with the amazing colors of this bright QLED panel and the Samsung Q90T is sure to be one of the best TVs out there, at any cost. The 55-inch model retails for $ 200, but Samsung has cut prices for each size through its own online store. So go to his website and choose the size you want.
75-inch Samsung Q900TS QLED 8K TV ($ 2,999, originally $ 7,499; samsung.com)
75-inch Samsung Q900TS QLED 8K TV
If you want the latest and greatest in TV technology, the Samsung Q900TS brings the Q90T all the best – bright highlights, vivid colors, and deep black levels – and quadruples the number of pixels available. While you won’t find 8K movies on Netflix just yet, this 8K TV ensures that with the sharpest panel you can buy today, you’re ready for whatever comes next.
65-inch Samsung The Frame TV ($ 1,899, originally $ 1,999; samsung.com)
65-inch Samsung The Frame TV
While the image quality isn’t quite as impressive as the Q90T and Q900T, Samsung’s The Frame is stunning in itself. Fully flush on the wall, it has a frame-like design and ambient mode that displays photos and paintings from Samsung’s curated collection, so your TV acts as art when you’re not in use, rather than an empty black box in the middle of your room. I have this in the middle of my living room and smile every time I look at it – even when it’s turned off.
55-inch TCL 4 series ($ 359; walmart.com)
55 inch TCL 4 series
When it comes to super affordable TVs, you won’t see any big price drops right now – in fact, most of the prices for these TVs have gone up in the past few months, likely due to the semiconductor shortages across the electronics industry. But if you need a TV and don’t want to spend a bundle, Walmart is still one of the best places to look. The TCL 4 series offers some of the best bang for your buck on a budget, especially given their fantastic Roku Smart Interface offering, which is some of the best around.
32-inch TCL 3 series ($ 145, originally $ 199; walmart.com)
32 inch TCL 3 series
For a smaller TV that fits in a kitchen or office, TCL’s 32-inch 3 Series is a fantastic choice, even with Roku’s fantastic smart system in tow. At just $ 145, this is sure to be one of the cheapest TVs we’ve seen on our deal hunt that we’d actually recommend for purchase.
40-inch Hisense H4 ($ 238; walmart.com)
40-inch Hisense H4
Hisense also offers some TV models with built-in Roku smart apps. At $ 228, this last year model offers 40-inch 1080p goodness for any room in the house, without the particularly expensive bells and whistles.
