  • TCL 49-inch Roku Smart 4K TV—$349.99 (Save $10)The #1 best-seller on Amazon for LED and LCD TVs is a great budget buy for anyone who wants a 4K TV but doesn’t want to spend their life savings on a high-end model, especially when you can save an extra $10 off the already-great low price.
  • Samsung 55-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV—$897.99 (Save $302): This 2017 model won our Editors’ Choice award for its impeccable picture quality, and now you can get it for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Not only is it the lowest price we’ve ever seen, but you can get it from Best Buy for the exact same price if you’d rather pick it up yourself.
  • Samsung 40-inch 1080p (HD) Smart TV—$269.00 (Save $80): 2017 might be a great year for 4K/HDR TVs, but there are still great deals to be had on full-HD TVs like this 40-inch Samsung. At this size, you’re not going to miss 4K, and you still get good picture quality and minimalist smart features.
  • TCL 30-inch Roku Smart LED TV—$149.99 on Amazon (Save $50): This best-selling LED TV may only be 720p, but it’d be perfect for a youngster’s bedroom, a guest room, or even in the kitchen, especially at this price.

  • Fire Stick with Amazon Alexa—$24.99 (Save $15): This streaming stick has never been available for such a large discount. The device is made even more convenient by being able to ask Alexa to find your TV shows for you. No more pesky and awkward remote control-typing.
  • Roku Premiere+—$50 (Save $50): If you need a new Roku, the Premiere+ was our favorite model from last year and it’s down to just $50 today. It’s basically as good as this year’s best models with 4K, HDR, and an amazing remote—get it before it’s gone.
  • Google Chromecast—$20 (Save $15.49): Google Chromecast is the technophile DIY’er’s answer to streaming content. Allowing you to essentially cast content from your phone right to your TV, it’s a cheap and effective way to watch Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, or whatever, without ponying up for a whole streaming box.

Best Buy

  • Samsung 49-inch MU8000—$699.99 from Best Buy (save $300)Samsung’s MU8000 series knocked it out of the park in our lab tests, and the 49-inch version is pretty seriously discounted at Best Buy right now. For $700, you’re getting a midsize 4K/HDR smart TV with Samsung’s signature level of polish.

Dell

  • Sony 55-inch XBR-55X900E—$998 from Dell (save $702)The X900E series is one of Sony’s most finely tuned and performance-heavy series this year, featuring Sony’s usual attention to detail and out-of-the-box accuracy. It’s normally crazy expensive, so this discount is impressive to say the least.

  • Skullcandy Uproar Bluetooth Wireless headphones—$25 (Save $24.99): While we haven’t personally tested these on-ears, getting a pair that’s wireless and has Bluetooth capability is a hard deal to argue with.

BH Photo

  • Samsung Galaxy S8 — $574 (Save $150): Between its fantastic camera, lightning-fast performance, and gorgeous AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is currently our top-rated Android smartphone.
