Sam's Club is among the first retailers to announce pre-Black Friday deals, with a one-day sale for members on Saturday, Nov. 11. We got a tip on the Sam's Club sale from bestblackfriday.com, one of our go-to Black Friday-focused websites.

For its one-day sale, Sam's Club seems to be focusing on larger TVs. Among the top deals are a 70-inch Vizio smart TV for $878 and discounted 75-inch sets from LG and Samsung.

The Sam's Club pre-Black Friday sale on Nov. 11 starts online at 12:01 a.m. ET and at 7:00 a.m. in stores. 

Here's our assessment of the TV deals that you'll find as part of the one-day Sam's Club sale.

More Tips on Great Deals

Samsung UN58MU6070 58-inch 4K Smart TV (Bundled With a Samsung HW-M360 Sound Bar)
The ad doesn't have a price, instead indicating that you can save $300 off the bundled package. This TV is priced at $800 now at Sam's Club; it's about $300 more at Walmart. The sound bar typically sells for about $150. We haven't tested this TV, but Samsung 4K sets have typically done well in our TV ratings. We also didn't test the sound bar, but it could be the same we also saw on the leaked Kohl's Black Friday ad.

Samsung UN75MU800DFXZA 75-inch 4K UHD Smart TV
No price is listed—the ad just says you can save $500 off the usual price of the TV. This online-only special includes a $50 Google Play credit. We tested the Samsung UN75MU800D set, and it did very well, with excellent HD picture quality, UHD performance, and sound. It's currently selling for about $2,280 at Sam's Club.

Vizio E70-E 70-Inch 4K Smart TV, $878
The Sam's Club pre-Black Friday ad calls it the "E-70E," but we think it's the Vizio E70-E3 model that normally sells for about $1,300. We haven't tested this set, but we did evaluate the 75-inch Vizio E75-E3. That model had excellent high-definition picture quality and very good UHD performance, though its HDR experience wasn't that hot. BJ's sells this TV for $1,250, and Walmart and Best Buy have it for about $1,300, so a $878 price tag would be a great deal.

Vizio E55-E 55-Inch 4K Smart TV, $398
We're not sure which set this is, but it could be the Vizio E55-E2 set, which costs $480 at BJ's and about $530 at Best Buy and Walmart. We have tested the  Vizio E55-E2, which offers an excellent HD picture but only good UHD performance. The E55-E2 uses the Google Chromecast-based SmartCast smart TV system, which lets you cast content to the TV from compatible mobile devices.

Vizio D39F-E1 39-Inch 1080p Smart TV, $239
This set regularly sells for about $300 at a number of retailers, so you'll save about $60. Like other D-series models, it has Vizio's older VIA smart TV system rather than SmartCast.

LG 75UJ657A 75-inch 4K UHD Smart TV
Again, no price is listed for this warehouse club model; there's just a promised savings of $250. This 75-inch TV is available at Costco for $1,750. CR has not tested this set.

Sound Bar Savings
Sam's Club is also featuring a Vizio 5.1 sound bar speaker system with a wireless subwoofer and rear speakers for $150, down from $200 normally. We think it's the Vizio SB3651-E6, which costs $200 at Sam's Club and more at other retailers.
