Best Black Friday TV Ads: You Don't Have to Wait in Line to Score a $75 Set

It's Amazon vs. Walmart in the battle for your Black Friday dollars, but price-matching might win the day.

Update: Black Friday deals have started to leak!

Click here to see our roundup of the best Black Friday TV deals we've seen so far, or read on for more info about what's still to come.

Almost all the 2015 Black Friday ads have come out, so we're back again with our re-ordered TV picks. Amazon's ad came late and hit hard, delivering knockout prices on 50" and 32" sets. But Walmart remains a solid contender, hanging onto its 70" doorbuster crown. We're getting down to the wire, now; be sure to bookmark this page so you don't miss our final picks!

The Best Black Friday TV Deals

  • 50" 1080p LED HDTV for $150 at Amazon
    We know very little about this Amazon app-only ad, but those scant facts are fascinating. For one thing, it's poised to become the cheapest full-HD 50" set we've ever seen (in any condition) by a whopping $90. It also beats every other Black Friday ad that we've seen for a 50" HDTV.

  • 32" LED TV for $75 at Amazon
    Speaking of mysterious deals, all we know about this ad is that it's a 32" set. Of course, we also know that it absolutely destroys the $100 off-brand offers from Target and Kohl's. Better still, this offer comes within a hair's breadth of our $70 doorbuster price prediction for this class.

  • Westinghouse 55" 1080p LED HDTV for $250 at Target
    Although we predicted that a 55" off-brand TV doorbuster would hit $379 this year, this offer handily beat our estimation. But not all the credit can go to Target, since Meijer will have an Element 55" TV for the same price.

  • Vizio 70" 1080p Smart LED HDTV for $898 at Walmart
    This is the mega big-screen TV doorbuster we've been waiting for! Prior to this, the cheapest 70" TV we've ever seen went for $1,198, and this Vizio will check in at $300 less than that. It's also well below our prediction, which makes this the big-screen deal to beat this season.

  • Samsung 55" Curved 4K UHD Smart TV for $998 at Walmart or hhgregg
    While we have seen a Samsung 55" curved 4K TV drop to $900 twice during the summer, this is only the third TV with those specs to drop below $1,000. (Sears will have one for a couple bucks more.) This model currently sells for $100 more on Amazon.

  • TCL Roku 32" 720p Smart HDTV for $125 at Walmart or Amazon
    We haven't yet seen many deals on this TV with a baked-in Roku OS, and as such it hasn't dropped lower than $180. Although we'll certainly be seeing much cheaper 32" screens on Black Friday, this remains a solid pick in Smart sets.

  • Element 55" 4K LED UHD Smart TV for $400 at Target
    Here's yet another deal that beats even our wildest doorbuster predictions. We'd previously said that $425 would be the best price for a 4K TV in 2015. Target can claim the cheapest advertised 4K price for the moment, but we'll see if it hangs onto that crown on Black Friday.

  • Samsung 40" 1080p WiFi LED Smart HDTV with $90 in Kohl's Cash for $320 at Kohl's
    Assuming you'll use the $90 bundled credit, this deal is set to become the cheapest Samsung 40" 1080p HDTV we've ever seen. That said, Amazon will have the cheapest 40" 1080p set around, if brand doesn't matter to you.

  • Samsung 60" 4K LED UHD Smart TV for $800 at Best Buy
    There's a price war brewing over name-brand 60" 4K sets on Black Friday. This Samsung set is clearly taking aim at Dell's $800 Vizio in the same class. Another deal to watch? This as-yet-unknown set from Amazon, which was billed as a "top-selling" set in the retailer's Black Friday press release.

As much as I'd love to get a 70" TV I'd steer away from Vizio - there is no option to disable the annoying "soap opera effect". More info here:
