Independence Day is coming up, and many stores are celebrating the holiday with some sizable discounts on select TVs. If you're in the market for a new display, this weekend could be the perfect opportunity to finally snag that 65-inch 4K TV you've been eyeing without having to pay full price.
Many brand-new 2020 TV models are in stock right now and several of these displays are already on sale. And, since retailers are eager to clear out older models, a few 2019 TVs are currently available for some of their lowest prices.
Below, we've compiled a list of the best Fourth of July TV deals available right now. With that said, since some retailers are still rolling out their specific Independence Day promotions, the discounts listed below might change. It's also possible that new deals could still be announced for the weekend. We'll update this page with additional discounts as they're revealed.
Updated on 07/02/2020 by Steven Cohen: Added TCL 8 Series and Insignia Fire TV Edition HDTV. Removed deals that are no longer available.
LG's new 2020 CX OLED is available for a $400 discount just in time for the Fourth of July. The display offers all of the main benefits that OLED TVs are known for, including pixel-level contrast and wide viewing angles. LG has also incorporated its latest AI image processor for upscaling, as well as HDMI 2.1 ports for advanced features like Variable Refresh Rate (VRR).
For buyers who want OLED picture performance in a smaller form factor, there's also LG's new 48-inch CX model to consider. This is the smallest OLED screen size that LG currently offers, and you can snag a solid $100 discount on the TV right now at Best Buy.
Hisense's new H8G is one of the best mid-range TV models you can buy in this price range. With full-array local dimming, extensive HDR format support, quantum dots, and robust smart TV capabilities courtesy of Android TV and Google Assistant, the display offers performance that rivals several more expensive models from the competition. For more detailed impressions, be sure to read our full review of the 65-inch model here.
TCL's flagship 8 Series TV is on sale for a whopping $1,200 off its regular price. The 4K display features advanced mini-LED technology for superior local dimming capabilities. This results in impressive black level and contrast performance. Roku smart TV capabilities are integrated as well, offering convenient access to many popular streaming services. The smaller 65-inch 8 Series TV is also on sale, with a current deal price of just $999.99.
Samsung's latest flagship 4K QLED TV is the Q90T. This premium 65-inch display model boasts quantum dot color, full-array local dimming, and an attractive, minimalist design. The TV also incorporates Samsung's reliable smart TV platform powered by Tizen, along with integrated Alexa voice control.
One of Sony's flagship LED displays for 2020, the X950H offers several advanced picture quality features, including local dimming, HDR support, and IMAX Enhanced capabilities. This 49-inch version is the smallest size the TV comes in, but the model ranges in size all the way up to a whopping 85-inch version.
Vizio just released its brand-new TV lineup, but 2019 models are still available at a few retailers for some enticing deal prices. While the more expensive 2020 model offers upgraded processing and HDMI 2.1 ports, the 2019 P-Series Quantum X is still one of the brightest LED TVs you can buy. At $1,099.99, there are few competing TVs in this price range that can match this level of performance.
Samsung's 8 Series TV doesn't offer the same HDR brightness and color performance that the company's QLED models are capable of, but the display offers a more affordable option for buyers who want a large 75-inch Samsung 4K TV.
If you're looking for a more budget-friendly 75-inch TV option, TCL's 4 Series is an attractive buy for a current sale price of just $699.99. You won't get the color, contrast, and brightness performance you'd find on the company's 6 Series or 8 Series models, but the TV's price is very competitive for a display this large, and integrated Roku capabilities make streaming simple.
Though it lacks advanced picture quality features, this entry-level 43-inch 4K TV is a good fit for buyers who simply want a reliable smart TV for casual streaming. The display includes built-in support for Amazon's Fire TV platform, offering access to a nice assortment of apps. As an added bonus, the TV currently comes with a free Echo Dot.
Though 4K is pretty much the standard for most new TV models, you can still save some money by opting for a lower resolution HDTV. 1080p smart TVs, like the TCL 3 Series, rarely get discounted all that much since they are already so affordable to begin with, but $20 off is still $20 off. This display is about as basic as they come, but its support for Android TV should be enough to satisfy buyers who simply want to stream their favorite apps.
For people who just want a small, simple, and inexpensive TV with basic streaming capabilities, the Insignia Fire TV Edition HDTV is one of the most affordable options there is. The 24-inch screen only uses a 720p panel, but at this screen size you probably wouldn't be able to see the benefit of a higher resolution anyway. A free Echo Dot is also included for a limited time.
For buyers with very deep pockets, Samsung's brand-new Q900TS 8K TV is the very definition of premium. In addition to all of the advanced QLED picture features you'd expect in a flagship display, the giant 85-inch panel features an edge-to-edge "Infinity Screen" that makes it look as if the image has no frame. Though the benefits of 8K resolution remain pretty minimal, there's no denying how gorgeous this TV looks.
