We’ve scoured the major retailers’ Black Friday deals and found the most outstanding values for every member of the family. A 32-inch screen is perfect for grandparents or children. There’s mid-size (40 to 50-inch) name brand TVs, great for the bedroom and a 60 and 70-inch ideal for the whole family viewing. We also include hot deals on soundbars and Blu-ray players.
Amazon plans to activate its big Black Friday deals starting this Monday Nov 19th at 12 am PST, so keep checking the links and order as soon as you see the sale price appear, because at these prices, the supplies won’t last long. The brick and mortar retailers open on Thanksgiving evening. We’ve included the Amazon links for all the items they carry as they appear they will soon be lowering many of their HDTV prices to match the major retailers as they’ve already dropped the price on the Samsung and Panasonic models.
