COVID-19 restrictions are altering many holiday traditions, but this one remains intact: the Black Friday TV deal. If you want to upgrade your home theater, there is no better time of year and that remains true even in 2020.
Below are five notable markdowns from Walmart.com’s holiday deals section. The sets are a mix of traditional high-definition units and smart TVs — something for any family and household.
The biggest price cut you’ll find here is north of $150; the smallest is in the neighborhood of $50. All the featured sets are available via free, two-day shipping. Even if you enjoy the experience of camping outside a big-box store for a holiday deal, you’ll be comforted to know — especially this holiday season — that you don’t have to. All prices in our rundown are current as of publication.
