Pre-Black Friday TV deals began appearing weeks ago, with a special Black Friday pricing guarantee on high-end TVs at Best Buy, along with early discounts from Walmart that included smart TVs for under $100.
Here are the best Black Friday TV deals you'll find this week. Some TV sales only go live in-store at places like Best Buy and Target on Thanksgiving or Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) itself.
Amazon Black Friday TV Deals
Amazon has an insane number of Black Friday deals this year, and we've seen several one-day flash sales pop up days before Thanksgiving on hot gifts like L.O.L. Surprise toys and Instant Pot. Amazon device deals launched a week before Black Friday too, sometimes with discounts over 50% off.
As for Black Friday TV deals at Amazon, the e-retail giant has been matching or beating prices from Best Buy on certain Fire TV Edition models lately. Take note, however, that the Amazon TV deals don't come with a free Echo Dot smart speaker like the Best Buy promotion. Here are Amazon's TV deals that first jumped out at us during Black Friday week. We'll update our list as new Amazon deals appear.

Best Buy Black Friday TV Deals
Black Friday TV deals at Best Buy roll out over several days this week. According to the Best Buy Black Friday ad, a few doorbuster TV deals are available only at stores (not online) when Best Buy opens on Thanksgiving — 5 p.m. locally, in most of the country.
A new round of doorbuster TV deals arrives in stores when Best Buy opens on Black Friday — 8 a.m. locally on Friday, November 29. If you're wondering how to get a Best Buy doorbuster TV deal, the retailer explains that stores will be handing out a limited number of tickets to shoppers waiting in line on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
But it's not mandatory to physically go shopping on Black Friday to find a cheap TV deal. You can purchase the vast majority of Best Buy Black Friday TV deals online as well right now.

But Walmart's best Black Friday deals don't officially go on sale in stores until the evening of Thanksgiving Day.
If you're shopping in stores, you can look for TV deals to begin on Thanksgiving Day at 6 p.m. locally, according to the Walmart Black Friday ad. But it's also OK to stay home.
