It's not surprising that TVs are featured prominently in Best Buy's leaked Black Friday circular scans, which were posted on the Black Friday website BFAds.net. Although there are a smattering of secondary brands—including Best Buy's Insignia label—many of the sets are from major brands such as LG Electronics, Samsung, and Sharp.
Among the opening-page eye-catchers: a $500 55-inch 120Hz 1080p LED LCD TV from LG, and Samsung's even bigger 65-inch 120Hz 1080p LED LCD TV, priced at $1,000. Both sets are eligible for free delivery.
Like several of its competitors—including Walmart and Target—this year the electronics chain opens at 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving. (Sears opens at 8:00 p.m.) Best Buy says it will hand out tickets up to two hours before the stores open. But for night owls who prefer to shop later, Best Buy is promising some unannounced "mystery" midnight doorbusters.
Other prominently featured doorbuster TVs are two Insignia-brand 60Hz 1080p LED LCD TVs: an $80 24-inch set, and a $179 39-inch model.
As you can tell, Best Buy isn't making it easy to compare prices, as it didn't publish specific model numbers. As we get closer to Black Friday, we'll try to figure out the models the store is promoting.
Best Buy has a large assortment of TVs in all screen sizes. Those who are looking for a smaller TV or a second or third TV for an office or den may be interested in a 24-inch 60Hz 720p LED LCD TV from LG, priced at $150, or two 32-inch Samsung sets: a 720p model for $228 and a 1080p set for $278.
