Store: Walmart
Price: $848 with free shipping
Lowest By: $27

Is It Worth It?: "The Vizio M series sits at this year's sweet spot of price and picture, and just happens to be 4K too," says CNET, which wholeheartedly recommends this TV over 4K offerings from Samsung and Sony. The star feature inside the Vizio 55" 4K 2160p LED-Backlit LCD UHD Smart TV is its local dimming, which selectively dims and brightens independent areas of the screen for better contrast than competing TVs. Price-wise, it's the best deal we've ever seen for this TV. It features a 3840x2160 resolution (four times that of 1080p), 120Hz refresh rate, WiFi, Internet Apps (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Video, more), and five 4K-compatible HDMI ports.

Assuming you have a Target Red Card which gets you 5% off, the 55" Vizio and a $50 gift card is currently $854.99 ($805 net). Last month it was $949 -15% for store pickup and another -5% with Red Card ($767 out the door). Dell also had this with a $300 gift card for $947.99 ($648 net) in June. Currently Costco has it for the same price as Walmart, but with a better return policy and cheap hotdogs on the way out. Also, it's not Walmart.
