Best cheap TV deals for January 2022

With CES 2022 having just wrapped, the future looks bright if you’re looking to nab a great TV deal. At CES, many manufacturers — including LG and Samsung — announced new versions of some of their most popular models, ranging from The Frame to LG’s new C2 lineup. That means we’re probably going to start seeing prices fall on last-gen models as newer models become available throughout the rest of the year.

For those looking to pick up a solid deal before the new models arrive, however, fret not, as retailers will also likely be discounting TVs in the run up to the Super Bowl next month. And if you need one now, there are currently a lot of discounted 4K TVs available to choose from, complete with a wide variety of prices and performance for those who can’t wait. Whether you want a secondary TV for the bedroom or a high-end OLED that’s built for a cinema-like experience, we’ve picked out the best TV deals across four common categories.

The best 4K TV deals for most people

A 55-inch TV is a popular size for good reason. It’s not too big, nor is it too small, making it a safe size if you’re looking to upgrade the TV in a living room or bedroom.

Sony X80J

Sony’s 55-inch X80J TV has Google TV software built-in, so you won’t need to purchase any additional streaming boxes, like an Apple TV or Chromecast. The LED panel also supports HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision HDR, and has four HDMI ports (one of which is HDMI ARC). It’s a relatively low-frills affair, but it seems like a good deal that’s currently available at Best Buy for $649.99. In addition to free delivery, the retailer is also offering six months of Peacock Premium, $50 off a Google Nest Hub smart display with each purchase, and up to $200 off select soundbars. Amazon and B&H Photo are also selling the same TV for roughly the same price but without the added incentives.

Sony X80J (55-inch)

Sony’s X80J TV features Google TV built-in, along with four HDMI ports for plugging in game consoles and streaming boxes.

TCL 6-Series

The TCL 6-Series R635 model is a good option if you are looking to balance price and performance. The R635 model sports a QLED panel, but it goes a step above with Mini LED backlighting, which brings better brightness and contrast. The 55-inch model is currently on sale at Amazon for $699.50 and Best Buy for $699.99 ($250 off), though, we’ve seen the R635 drop to as low as $650 in the past.

If you prefer a larger model, Best Buy is also offering the 65-inch for $999.99 ($300 off), while selling the 75-inch for $1,299.99 ($500 off). Regardless of which configuration you choose, however, Best Buy will also take $90 off Facebook Portal TV, if you purchase the two together.

Samsung The Frame TV

Samsung’s The Frame blends into your home decor, displaying customizable images that look like a piece of decorative art if its motion sensor detects someone in the room. When turned on, however, it transforms into an HDR-compatible QLED TV with Amazon’s Alexa built-in and support for AirPlay 2. The stylish, 4K TV also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, access to all the popular streaming services, and four HDMI ports.

We saw the 55-inch drop from $1,499.99 to $998, its best price ever, during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sadly, it’s now only about $100 off, with the 55-inch model going for $1,399.99 at Best Buy and $1,397.99 at B&H Photo. Best Buy is also taking $90 off of Facebook Portal TV with your purchase, as well as up to $300 off on select soundbars.

Samsung Frame TV 2018

Samsung The Frame TV (55-inch)

Samsung’s The Frame is a smart, 4K TV designed to directly blend in with your home’s decor. The QLED panel can seamlessly switch from displaying whatever content it is you’re watching to idle scenes of decorative art. The Frame also boasts HDR, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a motion sensor to ensure someone is there to see its ambient Art Mode.

The best TV deals on a budget

Insignia’s 4K HDR Fire TV Edition

You don’t have to spend a fortune for a 4K TV; spending $500 or less can still net you a TV with good image quality and features. Insignia’s 4K HDR Fire TV Edition model is the perfect case in point, one that supports HDR10, HDMI ARC, and HDMI eArc, among other notable features. Right now, you can pick up the 55-inch model from Best Buy for $369.99, a $180 discount on what is its typical $549.99 price tag. Best Buy will also take $90 off of Facebook Portal TV and offer 30 days of free FuboTV Pro. Amazon is offering the same discount on the TV, too, though it’s shipped and sold by Best Buy.

Insignia 4K Fire TV Edition (55-inch)

This 2021 model of Insignia’s Fire TV Edition 4K TV includes HDR10 for a more contrast-rich picture. It has three HDMI ports, too, with support for HDMI ARC and eARC, allowing you to send sound through an HDMI cable instead of requiring audio cables.

Toshiba Smart Fire TV Edition

Another Fire TV Edition TV deal happening now is on Toshiba’s 55-inch Smart Fire TV Edition 4K LED, which normally retails for $519.99. As the name might imply, it allows you to stream content from services such as Disney Plus and Netflix, and includes the option to watch live TV. The latest models also tout an Alexa-enabled remote, an easy-to-use interface, and support for both Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10. Right now at Best Buy and Amazon, you can pick up the 55-inch model for $469.99, a modest $50 discount. Best Buy is also throwing in a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV with each purchase (Amazon is not).

Toshiba 4K Fire TV Edition (55-inch)

An affordable, 4K LED TV with built-in Fire TV tech. This model sticks out from the bunch of other Fire TV Edition models with support for Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10.

TCL Class 4-Series

TCL also has competitively priced televisions, and its 4-Series lineup is one of the more affordable options on the market. The S435 model features a built-in Roku interface, dual-band Wi-Fi, HDR10, and support for all Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. You can currently get the 55-inch model for $379.99 at Best Buy, which is $220 less than the usual retail price. Other sizes are on sale, too, like the 43-inch model, which Best Buy and B&H Photo have for $279.99 instead of $349.99, about $8 shy of the TV’s best price to date. Best Buy also offers new subscribers 30 days of FuboTV Pro and three months of Apple TV Plus with each purchase, along with a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV.

TCL Class 4-Series

A 60Hz TV from TCL’s Class 4-Series that includes HDR, a built-in Roku TV interface, and support for Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri.

Amazon Omni Fire TV

Amazon’s first TV, the Omni Fire 4K TV, only just launched a few months ago and starts at $370. The self-branded effort features the ability to query Alexa even when the TV is off, as well as a low input lag and support for two-way video calling. We gave it a 7/10 in our review, while noting how the TV shows great promise thanks to its robust Alexa integration and support for Apple’s AirPlay 2, among other things. At the same time, however, TCL and other similarly priced television makers offer better picture quality.

Right now, Amazon is selling the 55-inch model for $419.99 instead of $559.99, which is just $10 more than the discount we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Both the larger and smaller configurations are on sale as well, with the 65-inch going for $599.99 instead of $829.99, nearly matching its lowest price to date. Best Buy is offering comparable sales on various sizes, while throwing in a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV if you purchase the two together. Note, however, only the larger 65-inch and 75-inch models include support for Dolby Vision HDR.

Amazon Omni Fire TV (55-inch)

Amazon’s new Omni Fire 4K TV features built-in microphones for Alexa commands, low input lag, and support for two-way video calling. It also provides access to Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and most major streaming services.

Vizio M7 Series Premium Quantum

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly TV with good picture quality, Vizio’s midrange M7 Series Quantum TV is worthy of consideration, even if it is over $500. The 2021 model sports a 60Hz panel, along with support for Apple’s AirPlay 2, AMD FreeSync, and a variable refresh rate (VRR). It also touts Vizio’s SmartCast system and a built-in Chromecast, allowing you to cast content from your phone and access Netflix, Disney Plus, and all your favorite streaming services. Right now, both Amazon and Best Buy are offering discounts on various size configurations. You can buy the 55-inch, for example, for around $579 ($170 off) at Best Buy and Amazon, or the 50-inch version for $10 less.

Vizio M7 Series Premium Quantum TV (55-inch)

Vizio’s newest M7 Series Quantum TV sports a 60Hz panel, along with native FreeSync support, a variable refresh rate (VRR), and a built-in Chromecast for accessing all of your favorite apps.

The best deals on OLED TVs

OLED televisions offer the best image quality you can get in a mainstream TV, and many were heavily discounted during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you missed out on those sales, however, you may still have another shot at landing a good deal, as many of the best models are still currently available at a discount.


Right now, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Amazon are discounting various sizes of the LG’s entry-level A1 OLED, starting at just around $796.99 at Amazon — its lowest price ever — instead of $1,199.99 for the 48-inch. Meanwhile, the $1,299.99 55-inch is selling for $1,196.99 at B&H Photo, and $1,199.99 ($200 off) at Best Buy, $100 shy of its best price to date. Best Buy is also offering up to $200 off on select soundbars, a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV, and 30 days of FuboTV Pro at no additional cost.

The 4K A1 offers support for both Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as an automatic low-latency mode. Unlike more expensive OLEDs, however, it doesn’t come with a slate of advanced gaming features, like those found on LG’s C1 model. It offers a slower 60Hz display and lacks HDMI 2.1, for example, and doesn’t support a variable refresh rate.

LG A1 OLED (55-inch)

LG’s entry-level OLED TV, the A1, has an auto low-latency mode and offers support for both Alexa and Google Assistant. Unlike pricier OLEDs, however, it lacks a fast refresh rate.


Despite the high price tag, LG’s Gallery Series GX OLED is a good TV for those looking for a more cinematic experience. It includes support for Google Assistant and Alexa, and for those who want to use their TV for gaming, it features Nvidia G-Sync and HDMI 2.1 support, meaning it can take full advantage of the RTX 30-Series cards or next-gen consoles. Right now, you can get the 55-inch model for as low as $1,529.99 ($270 off) at Best Buy in some areas.

LG GX Series OLED TV (55-inch)

If you are looking for a TV that can provide a solid cinematic experience for TV shows and movies, LG’s GX series is a good choice. It includes support for Dolby Atmos, but it is also a good TV for gaming thanks to its support for Nvidia G-Sync and HDMI 2.1.

Vizio OLED

Normally $1,299.99, Vizio’s 55-inch OLED was recently selling for around $999 – its lowest price ever – but is currently only on sale for $1,085.39 at Walmart, or for $1,199.99 at GameStop and Best Buy. Regardless, the TV is one of the more affordable options if you’re looking for an OLED. Vizio doesn’t have the same kind of experience in the OLED playing field as LG, sure, but it’s a great deal if you want a high-end viewing experience and HDMI 2.1 ports to display high frame rates from your PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Like with other models, Best Buy is also offering a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV with each purchase, in addition to three months of Tidal Premium, HiFi, or Family.

Vizio OLED (55-inch)

Vizio’s 2020 OLED is one of the cheapest ways to get the deep blacks and superb viewing angles for which OLED TVs are known.

4K TVs for the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X

Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X can play 4K games with HDR at up to 120 frames per second. So, naturally, if you don’t have a TV that takes full advantage of your console, it might be time to upgrade to one of our recommendations. For the best experience, you’ll want a TV that supports HDMI 2.1.


If you’re looking for an impressive TV, we recommend turning your attention to LG’s C1 line. Like its predecessor, the CX, the 4K C1 touts support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD Freesync technologies, along with a 120Hz refresh rate and low input lag. The main difference between the two is that the C1 is available in an 83-inch variant and features a better processor. It also utilizes a newer interface that makes good use of a settings pane dubbed “Game Optimizer,” which conveniently brings together a host of game-centric settings — refresh rate, latency, etc. — for quicker access.

Throughout the holidays, we saw the 55-inch C1 selling for $1,296.99 instead of $1,499.99, its lowest price to date. Sadly, that deal is no longer available. However, there are still some discounts on other configurations. You can, for instance, pick up the smaller, 48-inch model for $1,196.99 at Amazon and B&H Photo, as well as $1,199.99 at Best Buy, instead of $1,299.99. The 65-inch, meanwhile, is also selling for $1,896.99 instead of $2,099.99 at Amazon and B&H Photo. Best Buy also has it for $1,899.99, but is throwing in a $90 discount on Facebook Portal TV as well as 30 days of FuboTV Pro regardless of the configuration.

LG C1 OLED (65-inch)

LG’s C1 OLED starts with a 48-inch model, going up to 83 inches. All sizes of this OLED feature a 120Hz refresh rate, FreeSync and G-Sync support, and a fast processor.

Samsung Neo QLED QN90A

For a viable OLED alternative, there’s the Neo QLED QN90A. Unlike the LG models above, Samsung’s most recent flagship uses Mini LED backlighting, a technology that allows for better contrast, less “blooming” around white objects on a dark background, and brightness levels that outperform even the best OLED TVs. Like the C1, the QN90A is also built with gamers in mind. The 2021 model features an HDMI 2.1 port and a “Game Bar” that gives you the ability to quickly adjust your screen’s aspect ratio, monitor input lag, and check to ensure settings such as HDR and VRR are active, all of which make for a better gaming experience overall.

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the 55-inch QN90A sold for as low as $1,299.99. However, Amazon and Best Buy are currently only discounting the $1,799.99 55-inch TV down to $1,497.99 and $1,599.99, respectively. The $3,499.99 75-inch is also on sale for $2,797.99 at Amazon. As usual, Best Buy is also throwing in additional incentives, including up to $300 off soundbars and free delivery.

Samsung Neo QLED QN90A (55-inch)

Samsung’s Neo QLEDs are the company’s flagships for 2021, which come outfitted with Mini LED backlighting for improved contrast and brightness that better competes with OLED. They also tout HDMI 2.1 and a new Game Bar with shortcuts for features like VRR and aspect ratio.
