Cheap TV deals can be found any day of the week. Even big-screen 65-inch and 75-inch TVs regularly hit the sub-$499 price point nowadays. I've been tracking TV deals for over a decade, so I've learned how to spot a good deal from a mediocre everyday discount. 

Currently, Best Buy is offering some of the best TV deals if you're shopping on a budget. The retailer has select smart TVs on sale from $69. That's one of the lowest starting prices we've seen for smart TVs. Meanwhile, Walmart has 4K OLED TVs on sale from $839. The sale includes some of the best OLED TVs we've tested, such as the LG C3. This price is a little higher than the usual $549-$599 starting price we've seen in the past and that's because the 48-inch LG A2 OLED has sold out. (It was the OLED most retailers discounted to $599).

To help you find more of the best TV deals, we're rounding up today's top discounts from all of your favorite retailers including Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, and more. From budget 4K TVs to the best TV of 2024, here are the best cheap TV deals today.

TV buying tips and how to find the best TV deals

  • Don't buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. 4K is the standard these days, so unless you see a very cheap 1080p set, try to stick with 4K.
  • Likewise, don't buy a TV without "smart" capabilities. This makes it easy to stream content from apps like Roku, Hulu, and Prime Video. If you don't like the idea of owning a smart TV, you can always leave it disconnected from your network (which essentially strips all of its smart features). 
  • Look for HDR compatible sets. They offer more realistic colors and better contrast. There are 5 HDR formats, but the main ones you want are HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision. 
  • Avoid paying for extended warranties. New TVs include a 1-year warranty and your credit card company usually provides additional protection. 
  • Stay away from refurbished TVs (unless the savings are massive). The problem with refurbished TVs is that if your TV has more dents and scratches than you anticipated, return shipping is usually on you, and shipping a large TV can get expensive very quickly. 
  • Look for bargains on older sets: Many 2023 TVs are still on the market. Usually the differences aren't that noticeable to the average buyer, so when possible stick to the previous year's model. You'll find cheaper TV deals that way.

The Hisense U8K sits at the top of our list of the best budget TVs of 2024. In our Hisense U6K Mini-LED TV review, we said the Editor's Choice TV is one of the best budget TVs we've tested in years. 

For starters, it delivers an outstanding picture for its price tag. Its Mini-LED backlighting offers spectacular contrast while its quantum dot filter ensures well-saturated colors. Tack on Google TV and VRR support for consoles, and you're getting a lot of the best features at a much lower price point that competing TVs. 

That said, we did experience some slight fuzziness in HD content like Sunday Night Football and the native refresh rate of 60Hz is a problem for gamers looking to maximize the frame rates of their favorite games. However, those small issues aside, you'll be hard pressed to find a better TV at a lower price point.

Roku TV 2023

2. Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV

Roku’s first QLED TV is a great bargain

Available Screen Sizes: 55, 65, 75 inches | Screen Type: QLED | Refresh Rate: 60 Hz | HDMI ports: 4 HDMI 2.0 | Size: 33.1 x 57 x 4 inches | Weight: 36.7 pounds

Excellent value
First-rate HDR color
Good sound
Solid Roku TV smart interface
So-so brightness
Only 60Hz refresh rate
No HDMI 2.1 ports

The Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV is the streaming giant's first foray into TVs after long focusing on software and set-top/plug-in devices. And what an entrance it is. In addition to delivering a ton of screen for its starting price of $499, these TVs also give you surprisingly good picture quality and sound, two things that are usually lackluster in budget sets. 

We also like that they don't look cheap. A gray, metal bezel surrounds the screen on all sides, measuring less than an eighth-inch on the left, right, and top. There's also a chrome Roku logo front-and-center.  

The TV uses quantum-dot LED technology to produce vivid colors and increased brightness. In our tests, we found that the TV lived up to Roku's claims. Picture vibrancy does start fading as you move away from the center of the screen, but it took a fair distance for the display to look unbearable.

Toshiba C350 Fire TV review

3. Toshiba 55-Inch 4K Fire TV Edition

The most affordable TV with Amazon Alexa inside

Screen size: 55 inches | HDMI ports: 3 | Refresh rate: 60 Hz | HDR Support: HDR10 | Dimensions (without stand): 28.7 x 49.1 x 3.7 inches

Amazon's Fire TV OS is easy to navigate
Built-in Alexa
HDR support
Aggressive advertising
Confusing app store
Mediocre picture and sound

The Toshiba C350 4K Fire TV Edition is one of Amazon's budget smart TVs, which have one big selling point: Amazon’s Prime Video and Alexa voice controls are baked right in. In addition to Prime Video’s extensive catalogue of movies and shows, you’ve got one of the best voice assistants on the market as close as your remote. And it’s not some half-measure – the Alexa on your TV can do everything Alexa can do on the Amazon Echo, with skills for smart home control, looking up weather and restaurants and much more. All of this is built into the 55-inch Toshiba 4K TV, which sells for an affordable sub-$500 price.

The switch from last year’s Westinghouse models to Toshiba bring all sorts of improvements, like improved display quality, HDR support and a more refined user experience, but it’s held back by mediocre picture quality and middling audio. Edge-lit backlighting and limited HDR support just drive home the most frustrating thing about most of Amazon’s TV’s — no matter how good Amazon’s Fire TV is as a smart TV platform, the TV also has to stand  on its own merits.

In our tests, the C350 produces a good enough picture that you can enjoy what’s on screen without getting annoyed by quality issues. It’s bright enough to watch during the day and the set produces good color.

4. LG A2 4K OLED TV

The best OLED TV value you'll find

Screen size: 48, 55, 65 | HDMI ports: 3 | Refresh rate: 60 Hz | HDR Support: HDR10 | Dimensions (without stand): 24.4 x 42.1 x 1.8 inches

Solid picture quality
Great audio
Low input lag
60Hz refresh rate
No HDMI 2.1 ports
Brightness could be better

Normally on sale for $599, the 48-inch LG A2 4K OLED TV is one of the best TV values you'll find. We praised LG's budget TV for offering a "wonderfully colorful picture and fairly strong audio along with a slick and intuitive interface." Although the A2 has a refresh rate of only 60Hz, fast motion looked clean and fluid except in scenes of extreme business, and was never distracting at all. We also like the TV's low input lag, which gamers will appreciate. (Although gamers should take note that there are no HDMI 2.1 ports). 

The A2 boasts incredible picture quality, easily outclassing that of the familiar LCD screens most of us are accustomed to. It supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG, viewing formats that help make the content you view on the screen look their absolute best. Additionally, it integrates seamlessly with voice assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, letting you easily navigate your favorite shows and channels with just your voice. The LG webOS platform the TV runs on is great, too.
