Best Dell Black Friday TV Deals for 2018
There are fewer Dell TV deals than in previous years, but you can still find a great set for the money
In past years, Dell has been a good source for Black Friday TV deals, with several of its specials making it into our roundup of the best Black Friday TV deals of the year.
But based on the Black Friday ad released today, this year the company is dialing back the number of TV deals, focusing more on computers and monitors and other electronics items instead. Of course, it’s possible that new Dell TV offers will be added closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Dell Black Friday TV Deals
Here’s our take on the TV deals we know about. (Also be sure to check out the company’s deals on laptops.) As in past years, several of the Dell Black Friday TV deals include Dell eGift cards as part of the promotion. Those work out well if you’re also interested in other items that Dell sells.
50-Inch Vizio 4K Smart TV, $350 (Comes With a $100 Dell eGift Card)
This TV, the Vizio E50-F2, is a doorbuster special that kicks off at 3 p.m. EST Nov. 22. Note that it will be available in limited quantities. This set is selling for about $400 at Best Buy and other retailers—including Dell—so it’s really a good deal only if you’ll be using the gift card, which brings the savings to about $150.
We didn’t test this set, which is in Vizio’s E-Series of models just a step above the company’s entry-level D-Series sets. In general, Vizio E-series sets have done fairly well in our ratings but have ranked below the top-notch TVs.
55-Inch Samsung 4K Smart TV, $398
The Samsung UN55NU6900—a midtier model in Samsung’s mainstream collection of 4K sets for 2018—is selling for about $450 at several chains right now, including Best Buy and Walmart. So Dell’s savings aren’t dramatic. The set, a tested model that did well in our ratings, is available from Nov. 16 through Nov. 26.
65-Inch LG 4K Smart TV, $600 (Comes With a $100 Dell eGift Card)
This set, the LG 65UK6090PUA, is selling for $1,398 right now at Costco, and $850 at Best Buy.
When you consider the $100 gift card Dell is throwing in, this seems like a pretty good deal. But this set will also be part of Costco’s Black Friday sale, where it will be priced at $600. We also see it at Micro Center right now for $600.
So it seems to make sense to get it at Dell only if you’ll be able to use the $100 eGift card. This is a set we haven’t seen before, but Samsung TVs typically do well in our ratings. Note that this sale price kicks off Nov. 16 and runs through Dec. 1, 2018.
65-Inch Sony 4K Smart TV, $1,000
This TV, the Sony XBR-65X850F, is selling for about $1,400 everywhere right now, so this deal represents decent savings. This is a step-up model in Sony’s 2018 lineup that did very well in our TV testing, so it’s worthy of placement in your living room as your primary set. According to the ad, it’s available starting Nov. 16 and continuing through Nov. 26.
