Sears and Wal-Mart’s Black Friday HDTV Deals

November 9th, 2012 · 4 Comments · 3D HDTV, Connected TVs, LCD Flat Panel, LED LCD Flat Panels, News, Plasma

The Black Friday (BF) deals for these two giant retailers are now available. The Sears sale items are particularly interesting, as they feature more name brand HDTV models than Best Buy and include displays from Samsung Panasonic, LG and Sharp.

Regular readers will note Samsung introduced a Unilateral Pricing Policy earlier this year on its mid to high end models (link). Price drops of these TVs indicate the BF specials are factory sanctioned. This is very good news for folks that want to spend Thanksgiving with their families instead of waiting outside for a store to open.

According to our source, Samsung on-line dealers were offered the same deals on the regular line UPP models (primarily ES series). As a large number of Sears HDTV deals are under UPP, if Amazon or another dealer bought into the deal, they’ll are able to offer similar pricing on the sale date, and can be ordered from the comfort of your home. The exception: derivative models. These are a limited run of a series for specials on Black Friday usually with feature change or omission from the main line model.  These product numbers don’t appear on the manufacturer’s website, so trying to find the actual difference between the drop-in model and the legacy line model is often a futile exercise.(we’ve stuck a “D” by the listing to let you know its not a regular model). Also, if there is no current price in the BF ad, it’s a dead giveaway that it’s a derivative. Fortunately, many of the Sears Samsung models are not derivatives, so check with on-line dealers as we approach Thanksgiving. Ditto for Panasonic and other major brands, an example: the 32-Inch TC-L32X5 is BF priced at $349.99 at Sears, however it is now $347.99 from Amazon direct.

We’ve placed Amazon links on many of the Sears and Wal-Mart sale models. Samsung Amazon are expected to begin as early as November 18th, others such as Panasonic TC-P50U50 have already begun, so keep checking Amazon for the price drops between now and Black Friday.

Sears BF deals have staggered kick-offs which begin on Thanksgiving Nov. 22nd at 8pm.

The hottest Sears prices include a no-name 32-Inch LCD for $97, a 39-Inch Seiki LCD for $199 and a 50-Inch Panasonic plasma for $299.

Wal-Mart’s deals are also staggered and begin at 10 pm on Thanksgiving night. Biggest deals are a 70-Inch Sharp LED LCD for $1798 and a 60-Inch Vizio LED LCD for $688. On to the list.

    Re powerusage: 58watts = .058 kwh, Heavy usage say 10 hours per day = 3650 per year, tucson costs 12.5 cents per kwh. Powerusage per year is 211.7 kwh @12.5 perkwh. Final electric cost is $26.46 per year. Purchase price difference = $300. 300 / 26.46 = 11.3 years to recieve your investment. If it lasts 12+ years its a great deal.

    Look at the power consumption of the cheaper LED TVs. Example is the 60 inch LED at Wal-mart for $688. Website says it uses 83.49 watts but the user manual says it actually uses 170watts. The TV is cheaper but it costs over $300 a year to operate depending on how much your electric per KW/H is and if you watch TV 5 hours or more a day. Spend more up front to save over 2 years. The Samsung LEDs use roughly 58 watts for a 55 and are about $300 more up front but will pay for its self in a year.

    BUYER BEWARE: most of these models are models that are produced just for blackfriday. The build quality and picture quality are not consistant with the other models that you have seen from the same manufactors all year long.

    FYI – Anyone buying from Sears should browse The Consumerist and be aware that the chain has had SERIOUS problems within the past few years. Customers should expect difficulty getting Sears to honor advertised prices, delivery issues, and warranty claims.
