Black Friday TV deals are one of the most popular sale categories, thanks to record-low prices on a wide range of sets from all the top retailers. To help you prepare for the November event, we’ve created this Black Friday TV deals guide with everything you need to know, plus what sales you can expect.
Black Friday falls on November 26 this year, so there’s plenty of time to prepare for the shopping holidays. We expect to see incredible Black Friday deals this year from brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Hisense, and from US retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart – as well as Currys, Argos, and John Lewis in the UK.
Once the sales start, we’ll curate the best Black Friday TV deals here, so whether you’re looking for the latest high-end QLED or OLED TV, or a cheap set with smart capabilities, we’ll have you covered.
Our Black Friday TV deals guide also includes information on when offers start, where to look for bargains, last year’s discounts, plus today’s best TV deals. We’ll be updating this page through Cyber Monday and beyond, so make sure to bookmark this page for all the latest news and offers.
When will the best Black Friday TV deals start in 2021?
When will we start to see Black Friday TV deals? Black Friday proper falls on November 26 this year, however, we could start to see sales pop up well before that. This varies from retailer to retailer as they try to outdo each other with earlier and earlier sales, but the best Black Friday TV deals typically happen between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.
Where are the best places to find Black Friday TV deals?
Our Black Friday TV deals guide will have all the best sales in one place, so you’ll be sure to see the lowest prices from all your favorite retailers on this page.
In the US, you’ll find the best Black Friday TV deals from popular online retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target. You’ll typically find cheaper sets on sale from brands like Hisense and Insignia at Best Buy and Walmart and record-low prices on premium OLED and QLED TVs at Amazon. If you’re looking to score a deal before Black Friday proper, Best Buy and Walmart are your best bet for early offers throughout the month of November.
If you’re looking for Black Friday TV deals in the UK, you can count on retailers like Currys, AO, Very, Argos, and John Lewis to offer the best bargains. Amazon is also a reliable site to find Black Friday TV deals, but we typically won’t see discounts till Black Friday proper, so if you’re looking for early deals, then sites like Currys and Argos are your best bet.
If you’re looking for a TV bargain today, we’ve listed the top retailers so you can compare prices in the run-up to Black Friday.
Top US retailers:
– up to $400 off Samsung, Sony, LG, and more
Amazon – savings on premium OLED and QLED TVs
Walmart – cheap 4K TVs starting at $199.99
Samsung – save on 4K and 8K QLED TVs
Newegg – big discounts on QLED, gaming, and outdoor TVs
B&H Photo and Video – deals on Samsung, LG, and Vizio
Top UK retailers:
John Lewis – offers excellent warranty guarantees
Currys – cheap TV deals starting at £129.99

Argos – the best place for cheap TVs but regionalised stock
How can I get the best Black Friday TV deals?
Buying a TV on Black Friday can be stressful: there are hundreds, if not thousands, of deals to sift through, and it can be difficult to know which offers are genuinely good… and which aren’t.
Our deals team will also be sorting through all the Black Friday offers to bring you the very best deals on this page. It’s also worth doing your homework ahead of time so you can score the best TV at the lowest price available. You should have an idea of what size you’re after and what features are most important to you.
Over the years, we’ve found that many of the best value deals tend to appear the closer you get to the actual Black Friday weekend, especially on more expensive products – like TVs – where retailers could still make a profit while knocking a hefty amount off the price.
At last year’s Black Friday sale, budget TVs were top sellers, with brands like Hisense and Onn offering stunningly low prices on big-screen 4K TVs. The only problem was stock was limited, and the most popular deals sold out rather quickly. We recommend keeping an eye out for Black Friday ads and bookmarking this page as we’ll be rounding up all the best Black Friday TV deals here as soon as they launch.
What about Cyber Monday – will there be better TV deals than on Black Friday?
Cyber Monday kicks off on the first Monday after Black Friday, falling on November 29 this year. You’d be forgiven for thinking all the deals would be exhausted over Black Friday (which typically extends throughout November these days), but Cyber Monday is still a great time to save money on the tech you want.
We’d recommend going for the best Black Friday TV deals rather than waiting for Cyber Monday, but if you don’t find what you’re looking for, it’s a great second chance to find a discounted TV.
Essentially, any online store is worth keeping an eye on over Cyber Monday; after all, it’s a sales event dedicated to online shopping. If you’re in the US, Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy go all out over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, while UK buyers should keep an eye on retailers like Currys, Argos, and John Lewis.
Last year’s best Black Friday TV deals (US)
Taking a look back at last year’s Black Friday TV deals can help us predict what the 2021 sales will have in the future for us. In the US, we saw a slew of early Black Friday TV deals from retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon with sales that began as early as late October. We can expect that same trend to happen in 2021, and we’ll be rounding up all the early sales for you below.
This year, cheap TVs were a popular theme, with brands like Hisense and TCL offering massive big-screen TVs for record-low prices. We also saw higher-end OLED and QLED TVs get significant price cuts from brands like Vizio and Samsung. We expect to see more cheap TV deals in 2021 and higher-end brands offering better deals from the newest models.
