Best Buy has 8K TV deals for Prime Day 2020

When is the best time to buy a TV in 2020?

Whether you’re shopping online at Amazon, Walmart, or Best Buy, there are always deals going on. So if you’re in desperate need of a new TV, there’s never really a wrong time to buy. With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, many of the 4K TVs under $500 you see on the market are actually pretty good. That being said, there are a few times a year where you can find the lowest prices possible.

Amazon Prime Day

With all of the Prime Day sales going on, right now is one of the best times to buy. Historically, Amazon’s day of deals has always an excellent time to find discounts on brands like TCL, Toshiba, and LG. Since they are usually promoting their own smart devices, it’s a good time to snag a Fire TV for cheap.

You can also shop Walmart’s Prime Day sale, which is happening right now. It’s a great source of Vizio and JVC smart TVs.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday

These are your more traditional buying holidays, and arguably the absolute best time to buy any brand of TV. Considering Black Friday and Cyber Monday have pretty much melded into one super buying holiday at this point, it’s safe to assume the best TV discounts on OLED and LEDs will arrive on November 27 and continue through the following week.

Before the Superbowl

If you don’t see any prices you like in 2020(after Black Friday deals are gone), the January through February period of 2021 will be an excellent time to find TV discounts. While the Superbowl is the primary reason for the cheap prices, these dates also tend to coincide with the release of the latest models.

Get this 65-inch 4K TV for under $300 in Walmart’s Memorial Day sale
The onn. 70-inch 4K Roku TV hangs on the wall as part of a home theater arrangement.

If you're looking for a new TV, you're likely keeping your eye on many TV deals floating around. While it's pretty rare to find a good budget TV, it's even rarer to find a great deal on a budget TV, and that Venn diagram overlaps on the 65-inch Onn. Roku 4K TV. Not only can you pick up a relatively large-screen TV to upgrade your home theater setup, but you can do it for just under $300, which is rare. Granted, it's not as feature-packed as some of the best TVs on the market, but that's a small compromise for a 4k 65-inch screen.

Of course, we're here to show you if you aren't convinced. It's a great opportunity to take advantage of during the Memorial Day sales. But, on the other hand, if you want something a bit fancier, potentially something with a higher refresh rate for watching sports and playing games, then be sure to check out these other great TV deals you can pick up. Even so, we definitely encourage you to consider this deal from Walmart that nets you the 65-inch Onn. Roku 4K TV for just $298, especially if you're on a tight budget.

Ring Video Doorbell — $70, was $100

Want to keep your home safer, communicate with outdoor strangers without opening your door, and catch high quality video footage of the outside of your home even when its dark? For only $70 you do, especially with a Ring Video Doorbell, one of our favorite smart doorbells. You can communicate with it directly via Alexa, too, as part of your smart home. This can mean speaking directly with the people outside or using a preset response built into your Ring Alarm. Or, if you don't want to be bothered — or are outside your home —  you can have your alarm take a message. The setup is relatively easy, as the machine is wireless. While this does mean that the device uses a battery, you'll find that Ring Video Doorbells have longer lasting batteries than you might've guessed.

The HP Victus 15L gaming PC on a desk.

If you've been thinking about dipping your toes in modern PC gaming but you'd like to start with a budget gaming desktop, look no further than the HP Victus 15L, which is available from Best Buy's Memorial Day sale with a $200 discount. From its original price of $730, you'll only have to pay $530 for this gaming PC. However, you need to act fast with your purchase -- there's a few days left until the holiday itself, but we're not sure if stocks will last until then.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15L gaming desktop
The HP Victus 15L gaming desktop, with its 12th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM, isn't as powerful as the top-of-the-line models of the best gaming PCs. However, it meets the minimum system requirements for some of today's best free-to-play games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant, especially if you're willing to scale down the graphics settings a notch to ensure smooth performance. As a starter gaming desktop, you won't be limited with the titles that you can play on the HP Victus 15L, and when you feel the need for an upgrade, you can easily swap out its components for more advanced ones as that's one of the advantages of a gaming PC over a gaming laptop.
