What are the Best Black Friday TV Prices in Canada?

By Simon Hung

Televisions are one of the most sought-after products during the holiday shopping season and Black Friday has become the quintessential shopping event to purchase a TV in Canada.

The Black Friday TV market can be daunting and nearly every Canadian retailer will be discounting televisions this month, from big-box stores like Best Buy to smaller retailers like Teletime to unexpected shops like No Frills and many more.

Here are a few approximate deal prices to look for when TV shopping during Black Friday 2022 – the prices we've listed reflect the lowest prices seen on various screen sizes this year.

30-40" – $150.00

  • Smaller TVs under 40" are becoming less popular than larger sizes due to their limited features and decreasing availability. The vast majority of TVs under 40" will top out at 1080p resolution and can be found for under $150.00 during Black Friday, while 720p TVs can often be found for as low as $130.00.

40-50" – $250.00

  • 40-50" TVs are an ideal size for smaller spaces and many 40-50" TVs will incorporate modern features not found in smaller sizes like 4K resolution. Most 40-50" 4K TVs are often discounted to around $300.00, but there have been examples of prices dropping under $250.00, most notably the Amazon 43" 4-Series 4K Fire TV for $239.00 during Prime Day.

50-60" – $300.00

  • 50-60" TVs are widely considered the sweet spot for large TVs that aren't too gigantic, with 55" being the most widely-available screen size on the market. Most mid-range 50-60" TVs start at $500.00, but prices have dipped to as low as $330.00 – two of this year's more notable deals both came from TCL, where their 50" and 55" 4-Series Google TVs were priced at $332.71 and $376.00, respectively.

60-70" – $500.00

  • 60-70" TVs have become more affordable than ever over the past two years, with 65" sizes slowly gaining popularity as prices decrease over time. While most 60-70" TVs start at $1000.00, some models have been discounted heavily over the past year, including the Amazon 65" Omni Series 4K Fire TV for $629.99 in May, along with a Philips 65" 4K Google TV on sale now for $498.00 for Black Friday.

70" and larger – $650.00

  • 70-100" TVs have become more prevalent in Canada in the past year, but TVs in this range usually start at several thousand dollars and not everyone has sufficient space to mount a giant TV. However, there are some bargains to be found, as Walmart's house-brand onn 75" 4K HDR Roku TV is on sale now for $648.00 for Black Friday and marks one of the only instances of a 75" TV being priced below $700.00 this year.

NOTE: these estimates only reflect the best TV deals by price, as other features like brand, display type, smart integration, release date and ports are not weighted as heavily and can increase pricing significantly.

For instance, Sony's 55" X90K 4K HDR Google TV is on sale for $1199.99 during Black Friday and considered an excellent deal for a premium TV – while the price is 3x our $300.00 evaluation for 55" TVs, the Sony X90K Series includes a multitude of high-end features that most inexpensive and mid-range TVs do not have.

    • This is a very comprehensive response regarding the current TV climate and I tend to agree with most of it but Rtings also chose the S95B over the A95K because it provides the most bang for buck for the consumer for the only two 65" QD-OLEDs on the market (it was in one of their membership/premium subscription emails).

      I had the chance to compare/demo the 65" A95K and S95B in store at Visions a month ago under professionally calibrated settings and different lighting conditions/viewing angles for over an hour with the store manager (along with the LG C2 and G2), basically an A/B side to side comparison using demo clips for that very purpose. The A95K definitely has the superior picture quality/accuracy, detail and motion clarity to my eyes with native 4k UHD physical media and native 4k app streaming. The S95B appeared oversaturated with poorer viewing angles in comparison but it also does go much brighter (it reminds me of the vivid picture setting on the A95K which is wildly inaccurate but makes it much brighter and saturated).

      The S95B also has a terrible build quality (it's flimsy and there's warping issues over time - check Reddit) whereas the A95K is ironclad with a heatsink. Now the downside of the A95K is that there's only one HDMI 2.1 port after you've used up the HMDI eARC port for a proper floorstanding loudspeaker/subwoofer setup which most of us do. It makes switching between a PS5/XSX quite annoying to be honest, there's no reason why Sony couldn't have included at least a third HDMI 2.1 port. The A95K also has about twice the input lag and latency for gaming as the S95B/C2 OLED, but it's still under 10ms for 4k120hz which is fine for single player console exclusives (which is my sole reason for console TV gaming - I use my main PC rig with a 42" 4k138hz OLED right now for work/general gaming and will be getting one of the new LG 27" 1440p/240hz OLED monitors with 0.03ms response time for competitive FPS gaming, or hopefully better yet a 32-42" 4k240hz OLED next year with DP2.0 support after the 4090 Ti comes out).

      Anyway, as far as pricing on my end they were very similar after getting in contact with a local Visions manager and negotiating deals - I highly suggest you email the manager at each of your stores and go in for a quote since there's incentive on their end via commission and they can easily take off 15-20% off the price. I had the choice between a 65" A95K for $3000 CAD and S95B for $2400 CAD - that's too small a price discrepancy to care about with my budget since I was actually prepared to get a 77" LG G2 ($3500 CAD) or 77" C2 ($2800 CAD). The QD-OLEDs just blew me away for picture quality of traditional WRGB-OLED (C2/G2), and 65" is the right size for my current living room anyway since my KEF LS60 Wireless towers and dual KC62 subwoofers take up quite a bit of room.

      I think ultimately for most it's best to wait until next year for newer gen QD-OLEDs with more options. You'll have access to displays larger than 65", faster chipsets, more HDMI 2.1 ports and possibly DP2.0, upgraded picture quality and heat dissipation, and better gaming integration. Prices should be even more accessible too. Neither option is ideal right now but I needed a TV immediately and picked the best one for my needs.
      I agree that the A95K has the better build quality, Sony is known for better motion processing and rtings chose the S95B as the best option due to the bang for the buck. I've seen some instances of panel bend online, however; I think that's likely due to rough handling in shipping or grabbing the corners when mounting - mine came with no bends and still doesn't have any.

      I'm not sure why it looked like the viewing angles were better on the A95K than the S95B because they use the same panel/technology, so there shouldn't be much difference. I haven't seen the A95K in person myself, but the viewing angles on my S95B are fantastic.

      $3000 CAD is the lowest price I've heard of on a 65" A95K. So, that's solid negotiating, but did you also have to fork out for an expensive extended warranty with that? $2400 might have been the lowest price at Visions at the time for a 65" S95B, but I picked up my Geeksquad certified open box S95B for $1950, there was the brief educational discount via Samsung where people got new 65" S95Bs for $1950 and then there were bad box deals from Gibby's for $1698. So, the gap is more like 1K + taxes if you shop around. I doubt most will be able to get the 65" A95K for any lower than you did, but getting the 65" S95B for 2K or less is pretty realistic (especially if you go with an open box/bad box version - I've never seen an open box/bad box A95K available. It could be due to the better quality or just the fact that they don't do as much volume due to the high pricing).

      Anyway, it's fair to say you got the best TV available at 65" today and you did pay a premium over an S95B or LG C2/G2 (probably the next best TVs). Congratulations and enjoy the TV. I kind of wanted the Sony myself (not only for the heatsink, but also because I prefer the GoogleTV operating system and the native DTS support is nice as well), but couldn't stomach the huge price gap. if the Sony could be had for closer to 2K, I likely would have went that route. Seeing the S95B for under 2K was the tipping point for me to finally upgrade my TV. I didn't want to give up the great contrast, motion and inky blacks of the old HD CRT for another LED and knew that OLED was the only thing that would satisfy me (I hate the greyish blacks on my 4K LED and look forward to upgrading that one day in the future, but that TV is a secondary TV that I can live with for now) and had been eyeing them for a few years, but my target was always a good 65" set for 2K or less and I finally found that this year.

      Next year's Sony should use the new MediaTek HDMI chipset that supports 4 HDMI 2.1 ports. Hopefully the pricing comes down and/or they release a mid-range QD-OLED without a heatsink. It's hard to say what the year will bring. I'm happy with the S95B so far as it's a huge upgrade from the LED in my other room and the 34" HDTV CRT it replaced. When it's time to replace the LED in the other room, I'll more than likely be getting a second QD-OLED, whether it's a Sony or Samsung will depend on the pricing at the time. While it's nice to have the best, I'm not willing to pay a big price premium for a small bump in performance. Hopefully, the Sony pricing becomes more competitive over the next few years.

      I hope the pricing is more accessible for QD-OLED next year, but I did see a YouTube video by Stop the FOMO where he mentioned that part of the reason that the S95B was cheaper this year was that they only produced 250K and Samsung doesn't do a full Marketing push with a big dollar spend unless they're selling over a million units. So, this year they didn't have to pass on Marketing costs to the consumer and if they produce more QD-OLEDs next year and spend more on Marketing, the price could potentially go up a bit. I hope that doesn't turn out to be true, but it's one possibility. More size options will definitely be nice and they are always improving processing. Hopefully the TV makers include at least 1Gb Ethernet ports on their TVs as well instead of the 100Mb ports everyone seems to currently use. I know you can get an adapter, but one shouldn't have to do that on a TV that's so expensive. I also don't know why both Samsung and LG don't support DTS audio natively - having to hookup a PC or external streamer that does support DTS, to an AV receiver is an easy work around, but again, shouldn't be necessary on a high end TV.

    • Yes, the largest QD-OLEDs this year are 65". The two options are the Samsung S95B at the prices mentioned above or the Sony A95K for around $3700 (Same panel, Sony adds a heatsink, their processor and DV for a big jump in price. The Samsung actually has more HDMI 2.1 ports, 4 vs. 2 and has a gaming hub that the Sony doesn't have). A QD-OLED will be a massive upgrade, even in the same size, from a 2015 LG if it's an LED/LCD and still a bump if it's an OLED since it'll be brighter and have more colour volume. The inky blacks, amazing viewing angles and infinite contrast will all put your 2015 LG LED to shame.

      Rumour has it that larger size QD-OLEDs will be available next spring/summer, but I expect they'll be over 4 grand to start. There's another thread where someone spotted a clearance 77" LG C1 OLED in a Montreal Costco for $2500, but that's a unicorn deal that'll be very hard to find. Most Costco's don't carry OLEDs in that size in store.

      If you really want a 75" TV and your budget is 2K, then the two best TVs to look at are likely the Hisense U88H at Costco.ca when they have stock (was $1999 when they had stock, but they've sold out twice and have removed the product page. It'll likely be back at some point) or the 75" TCL 655 for $1800 via Amazon. Both the Hisense U88H (U8H in the US if you're searching for reviews) and TCL 655 are Mini-LED based TVs that will be brighter, have better contrast, blacks and less blooming than the Sony X90K. You can look at a full comparison of the U88H vs the X90K on rtings. The X90K doesn't use Mini-LED technology - it uses standard LED backlighting so the blooming control and contrast isn't quite as good as a Mini-LED TV. Here's a review of the TCL 655 (I don't think rtings has released their review to non-subscribers yet). Here's a good comparison of the TCL 655 vs the U8H.

      For OLEDs/QD-OLEDs, Samsung, LG and Sony are all worth considering. For LED based TVs, I think Hisense and TCL Mini-LEDs with a good warranty are the way to go from a bang for the buck perspective. LG uses IPS panels for their Mini-LED TVs instead of VA and they have worse contrast levels (blacks will be more greyish). The Samsung QN90B is probably the best Mini-LED TV, but only marginally better than the Hisense U88H or TCL 655 and much more expensive (3k for the 75" right now at Visions). The TCL 655 and Hisense U88H outperform the Sony X95K Mini LED based TV in most areas for less money. They outperform the X90K more significantly in most areas for similar money. Personally, I love the inky blacks and infinite contrast of OLED so would go for a 65" OLED over a 75" LED, but if you want a 75" TV for 2K or less that still has good blacks and contrast check out the TCL 655 and Hisense U88H.

      Rtings has an article on the best 70"-77" TVs. The LG C2 OLED takes the top spot, followed by the Samsung QN90B, but both are well above your 2K budget. The Hisense U8H (U88H in Canada) has the third spot and is exactly your budget. Then, they mention the older TCL 646. The newer TCL 655 replaced that one - both of those fall in your budget range.

      The Samsung S95B takes the top spot in their best 65" TV article and also falls in your budget if you get the right deal.
      This is a very comprehensive response regarding the current TV climate and I tend to agree with most of it but Rtings also chose the S95B over the A95K because it provides the most bang for buck for the consumer for the only two 65" QD-OLEDs on the market (it was in one of their membership/premium subscription emails).

    • Am I missing something? The link you shared clearly says that the QN85B has Mini-LED?

      “Part of Samsung's Neo QLED series of TVs, it features a Mini LED backlight, allowing for higher brightness levels and finer control of the local dimming zones.”
      You're right. I'll correct that, but it also clearly says that it uses an IPS panel with low native contrast that leads to blooming issues. So it has Mini-LED, but with an IPS panel and not a VA panel. With an LED TV, a VA panel is more desirable due to the superior contrast levels.

    • OK you've convinced me (well actually the Local dimming video comparisons on rtings) to wait for the Hisense U8H (U88H) to come back in stock for the VA and mini-LED, hopefully can find some good Boxing day deals or open box somewhere as well. The TCL seems to much of a gamble for me, gets low build quality ratings and seems to have some motion issues which will be bad for watching sports. Thanks again for your input
      No problem. As far as a Mini-LED TV goes, I think the Hisense U88H via Costco with their cheap extended warranty is a smart choice. The warranty for 6 years would only be $129 and not something crazy like the $400+ for 4 extra years that places like Best Buy, Gibby's, Visions ect. try to charge.

    • Be aware, the QN85B uses an IPS panel and not a VA panel like the Samsung QN90B. So, the contrast and black levels won't be as good as an LED with a VA panel. It also has a regular LED backlight and is not Mini-LED based like the Hisense U88H, TCL R655 or the Samsung S90B and Sony X95K; so, it may have more blooming. The Sony and Samsung Mini-LEDs in the 75" size would be way more than the QN85B, but the TCL R655 and the Hisense U88H should be in the same ball park. I know that the 75" Hisense U88H was $1999 on costco.ca before it went out of stock. The 75" TCL R655 is actually $1800 on Amazon.ca right now; so, only $50 more for a VA panel and Mini-LED.

      I definitely get the desire to go bigger, but I don't think I could live with an IPS panel as blooming and greys instead of blacks bother me, but YMMV. If I had to get an LED myself, I'd definitely want a VA panel and ideally a Mini-LED panel to have the best blacks, contrast and blooming control possible with LED tech.

    • Pulled the trigger on a "bad box" Samsung QN75QN85B from Gibby's for $1750. Went in to see IRL the difference between 65" and 75", and OLED vs QLED. For me, the bigger screen size outweighed the picture quality difference. The OLED was pretty sick though--and the thickness of the TV (a few mm maybe?) was very impressive. The sales rep told me they've taken all the bb listings off the website because they need to check them first to make sure they are working properly. At first he told me they don't have anymore, then said he would check in the back, and praise Jesus he just happened to find one. I put a deposit down and he will check it later today to make sure its working, and I will pick it up tomorrow. He is trying to sell me hard on the extended warranty but not in my budget right now, just hope anything that does go wrong will happen within first 2 years to be covered by my credit card.

    • A "bad box" 65" Samsung S95B QD-OLED falls into that price range. It's available from Gibby's electronics for $1798. Pickup in St. Catherines is free, but shipping is expensive at $150. They're supposed to be brand new TVs in perfect working order with damage to the packaging/box. There's a thread discussing that deal here.

      You can find an article on rtings ranking the best 65" TVs currently available and the S95B is their top recommendation. I picked one up as a Geeksquad Certified Open Box for $1949+$49 shipping a few weeks ago and am very happy with the purchase so far.

      Now, if it ever comes back in stock at costco.ca, the 65" Hisense U88H is a solid Mini-LED TV for $1500. It competes very well with the more expensive Samsung QN90B and Sony X95K at a much lower price. There's another thread discussing that TV here. It does seem to be in stock on Amazon right now for the same $1500.

      I have seen last year's high end Samsung Mini-LED the QN90A, on sale at some Costco stores for $1700. I saw it in person at the Thorncliffe Park Costco a week or so ago. They call it the 65QN9DA. There's a thread discussing that deal here. It received the same 8.6/10 overall rating on rtings that the Hisense U88H and this years Samsung QN90B have. So if you can find that one in stores, it's a solid deal, at Costco, in your price range.

      A final option would be the 65" TCL 646 from 2021. It was TCL's first Mini-LED and received an 8.3/10 on rtings. That's actually the same rating the new 2022 655 model has, but obviously it's lower than the Samsung S95B (9.1), Samsung QN90A and B (8.6) and Hisense U88H (8.6). It's also much cheaper than all those TVs as it's only $1200 on Amazon.

      I haven't been looking at 65" prices so don't really know. Here is the rtings review:
      https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/hisense/u6gr

      It's a 2021 model, roku model and had pretty good ratings except for the noted problem
      on it can't properly display 480p signals, which is disappointing if you often watch DVDs

    • Costco online put the Samsung Q60B 60" (exclusive to costco nobody else sells 60") on sale finally down to $798 (down from 1100-1200).
      I still don't recommend this TV over a Hisense 55" U6/7/8H series for reliability and performance but if you were waiting for this particular one to go down it did last night and early this am in local Edmonton costco.

      Also this AM in Costco I saw the 55" Sony X85 onsale for $895 which struck me as about a 100 cheaper than elsewhere. Not sure how long it's been that price.
      Again I would prob pass on this myself but it's a reasonable option for a mid price TV and don't want to add sound bar/system.
      Is the Hisense 65" U6GR worth it for $667?

    • I agree with all of this - great summary for somone catching up that hasn't tv shopped in a while.


      oops ... I was refering to the post on previous page...
      It depends which models you're comparing. When it comes to LED or Mini-LED, you'll usually get a better bang for the buck at the same price point with Hisense and TCL. While LG makes good OLEDs, I'd skip them for LED as they use IPS panels instead of VA panels and the IPS panels have good viewing angles, but worse black levels and contrast.

      Of course, there are some instances where it'll be worth paying a bit more for a Sony vs. a low end/entry level Hisense or TCL - those brands usually bring the value higher up in their lineup. What you should do is go to rtings and use the comparison tool with the exact models you're considering. Keep in mind that Hisense uses different model numbers in the US and Canada:

      U68H, U78H, U88H, U68G, U78G and U88G in Canada are U6H, U7H, U8H, U6G, U7G and U8G respectively. So, just drop the "8" when looking up US reviews. The H at the end indicates it's a 2022 model and a G is a 2021 model. The 6 line is low end, 7 is mid-range and 8 is their high end model. The 2022 U88H actually compares well with the high end Samsung and Sony Mini-LED TVs (QN90B and X95K) at a way lower price.

      With TCL, the best bang for the buck models are the 6 series, but the 5 series is solid as well if you don't need a 120Hz panel. The 4 series is entry level. With the 6 series, the R635 is from 2020, the 646 is from 2021 and the 655 is the 2022 model. The 646 was arguably the best value TV in 2021 - the 655 is probably second in 2022 right behind the Hisense U88H...unless you find a crazy clearance OLED deal.

    • I just got the same 65 inch too from Oshawa North at $1399. Appeared to be three boxes left and I snapped up one at same time as a young couple in at the same time. So one left, but who knows. Now excited to mount it over my fireplace to replace an existing old 55 inch.
      The TV is a heavy one, far heavier than my old 55” one. Was surprised while assembling it and had to call my partner for help.

    • What's the best 65" TV on sale right now around $1200 besides the TCL? Deals seem pretty cold
      I did nab a QN9DA for $1,400 at Costco. From my friends who checked their Costcos around where they live, 2 more grabbed the same one at the same price as well. I grabbed it at Mississauga, they did at Ancaster and Oshawa.

    • So I went into local Best Buy, showed them my receipt from Samsung for 65” S95B and even though they showed me they are loosing money on it (apparently they pay $2130 for them) they priced matched samsung canada deal. Paid $1950 plus tax and canceled my order from samsung canada.
      You got a great deal, it's $1799 US at Best Buy USA right now. Near 5 star rating from 411 reviews... sounds like a good TV.

    • Would you be able to pm me the receipt? I tried to do that at Best Buy but failed without a proper receipt
      If you get the receipt can you PM it to me as well. I came here to ask the same question.

    • I bought a Sony TV last week on Amazon, they shipped it very fast the next day but now it's been stuck all week at Purolator. My delivery from Amazon was supposed to be Thursday Nov 24.

      I don't know why they used Purolator for TVs. It's like they don't know what to do with it. The tracking is at the same place since Monday (15 mins from my home but I can't pick it up too big).

    • I used a credit card that doubles the manufacturer warranty. I also read online that if you register the product on the Samsung site that they'll offer you a discounted warranty via email shortly before your one year warranty expires. I don't know if that holds true for Canadians as that comment was made on another forum by someone in the US. If the prices of the Best Buy extended warranty were similar to Costco, I'd grab it. 6 years total for $129 is an easy choice - over $400 from places like Best Buy, Visions ect. is rough. I'm glad you got the deal without being forced to buy a membership or extended warranty. Enjoy the TV!
      Thanks for the tip!! I did the same with my CC, will register with Samsung, already installed it on my wall, what a difference from my 10 year old Panasonic plasma which I thought was amazing :)

    • Thanks man, no pushing at all, had to go thru 3 managers to approve that one time deal :), guys on the floor said they don’t think they will match it but since all receipts from Samsung.ca were ok they did, I was thinking about warranty but bc they were loosing money on it , 0% discount provided, I have 30 days to decide so I’ll do some research
      I don't understand why they price-matched if they are losing money. Congrats on the deal lol.

    • Anyone have experience with amazon extended warranty for TVs? Is it like costco? They come to your home to fix or refund you if they can’t fix it? Or they give a hard time?

      Debating to buying from Amazon as it will end up a little cheaper for me after some credits even with the more expensive extended warranty.
      Last year when I bought my TV from Amazon I was offered $50 off if I applied for the amazon MC, 5% back from the purchase and you get an additional year warranty included by using that card to buy the TV.
