It’s not Black Friday (or Thanksgiving) without those TV doorbusters.
DealNews, a consumer site that wades through retailer promotions all year long, expects upcoming Black Friday TV sales to continue the long-held trend of deep limited discounting.
Doorbusters will fall as low as $170 for a 40-inch 4K TV, predicted the site, and $879 for a 70-inch model. Some consumers will even be able to snag 55-inch 4K TVs for the same price as a 1080p model, it added.
As for the retailer with the lowest TV prices, that crown will go to Best Buy, forecast DealNews, while the best deals will likely be found on Thanksgiving rather than Black Friday proper.
This last item is unfortunate news for most brick-and-mortar retailers, as the decision to open on Thanksgiving shifts from a choice to a mandate.
