By  | 

Black Friday happens to be one of the most magical times of the year for those in the market for new electrical equipment as there are plenty of bargains to be had. Some discount prices have already started showing up in stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, Sears and Walmart. These are four of the best if you want an HD TV, with screen sizes of up to 65 inch being offered at a discounted price.

Black Friday 2012 deals: Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Sears

You may wish to bear in mind that HD TV deals do not come with connecting cables, nor do they have kits for cleaning screens or power protection. However you can get these accessories for bargain prices. Also bear in mind that typically you will get just one year warranty on parts and labour, however with some of the not so well known names this could be 90 days. On the other hand you may be able to double the warranty if you choose to pay with the right credit card.

Amazon is offering deals on HD TVs now and up to Black Friday. Amazon is the only one that is not waiting until Thanksgiving before they offer sales. However most of the tech they offer are no name brands, but if you don’t mind this, there are some great deals to be had. This includes picking up a 19 inch HD TV for just $80.
