While it’s a bit early to be thinking about the holidays, retailers jump on the opportunity to remind us that we’re six months out from the festivities. Black Friday in July sales have been ongoing this month, but Best Buy’s just began and will run through this weekend. A plethora of gadgets have been discounted across the site, but there are a number of sales on TVs that are worth highlighting. Best Buy slashed hundreds off TVs big and small, including some of the latest OLED sets from LG, Sony and Samsung. Amazon’s matching many of the deals, too, so you have options when it comes to where you spend your money. Here are the best smart TV deals we found in Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sale.
55-inch LG A1 OLED 4K TV
The latest LG OLED lineup just became available a few months ago and now you can grab the 55-inch A1 model for $1,300. The A1 series is the most affordable of the bunch, making these sets good options for anyone looking to upgrade to OLED while on a tight budget.
55-inch LG C1 OLED 4K TV
The 55-inch, mid-tier LG C1 OLED TV is down to $1,500, or $300 off its normal price. It uses LG’s a9 Gen4 AI Processor 4K and supports HDMI 2.1, G-SYNC and FreeSync for gaming and voice commands using Alexa or the Google Assistant.

While the latest G1 flagship is also on sale (see below), it’ll set you back an additional $500.
