Black Friday remains one of the best times of the year — if not the best time — to buy a new TV. Whether you want a smaller set for the kids' bedroom or a big screen for your spacious living room, you can find Black Friday TV deals to fit your budget.

32" Displays Will Be $80 or Less
In the past few years, super-cheap 32" TVs have become staple in-store doorbusters. While we're not expecting as many of these deals in 2020, we still expect to see sets at very low prices. A new $80 TV is noteworthy, but if you don't mind buying refurbished, you can expect to find these sets for as little as $59.
LG, Samsung, and TCL Will Dominate 40" TV Deals
You might think deals on smaller TVs will only be for mid- and low-tier brands you aren't confident about. But even well-known manufacturers make these space-saving sets. Last year, LG, Samsung, and TCL all tied for having the most deals in the 40" size class. While some of these deals get a boost from being bundled with gift cards, you can expect to pay an average of $214 for TVs between 40" and 49" this Black Friday.
55" LG Sets Will Go as Low as $300
If you want a new midsize set, you can expect to find 55" smart TVs at reasonable prices and by well-known brands. For instance, last year we saw LG 55" 4K smart sets for as low as $300. And if you're less worried about brand, you can pay even less — we also saw a Hisense 55" 4K smart set for the astonishingly low price of $220.
Name-Brand 65" TVs Will Drop Under $450 With Gift Cards
Big-screen TVs often come with higher prices, but around Black Friday, they also come bundled with gift cards. As long as you spend those gift cards, they effectively drop the price on these massive TVs. For instance, last year we saw an LG 65" 4K smart set (2019 model) for $480. Already that's a pretty great price, but it was even better since it was bundled with a $50 gift card, which essentially made this set only $430.
Score a Huge TV for Just $700
If your mentality is go big or go home, Black Friday is the time to do it. Outfitting your living room with a huge TV is a good way to salvage 2020, as long as you have the budget to do so. If last year's trends return, we'll see 70"-plus sets for under $1,000. Last year, a Vizio 70" set would only set you back $700 — and it was bundled with a $150 gift card.
