An early taste of 4K Black Friday Deals: Sam’s Club discounts on 4K TVs leaked
Stephan Jukic – November 2, 2016
November has just barely begun but a taste of what we can expect for Black Friday 2016 is already spreading across the web, partly in the form of leaks on discounts for the mega sales date near the end of the month and partly even in the form of some early deals from sites like amazon.com.
Most interestingly for 4K.com however, leaks have emerged about the kinds of sales deals on 4K ultra HD TVs we’re going to be seeing on November 25th from the website and retail store locations of the price warehouse Sam’s Club.
Specifically, Sam’s will apparently be selling several different Vizio 4K SmartCast TVs in different size ranges for some nicely reduced prices and savings of 15% or more. These deals will also extend to at least two premium 2015 Samsung 4K TVs and of course to several other non-4K consumer electronics products.
Let’s take a look at what we can expect, starting with the Vizio 4K TVs:
The Sam’s Club leak details as known so far show that the Black Friday deals will apply to several different sizes of Vizio’s E-series 2016 4K SmartCast TVs, which are part of the brand’s more budget-friendly ranges of 4K TVs for this year. These deals are going to be as follows:
Vizio 50 inch E50u-D2 4K SmartCast TV expected to go on sale for $348 as opposed to its regular current retail price of $498
Vizio 60 inch E60u-D3 4K SmartCast TV expected to go on sale for $548 as opposed to its regular current retail price of $698
Vizio 70 inch E70u-D3 4K SmartCast TV expected to go on sale for $928 as opposed to its regular current retail price of $1,198
While the Vizio E-Series TV models lack the truly premium HDR specs and reviewer prestige of their top-shelf 2016 P-Series HDR 4K TV cousins, they’re nonetheless excellent 2016 budget models with superb motion control, color and black level performance for their price range. They also offer the full roster of 4K UHD streaming content apps and other media sources in their advanced SmartCast smart TV platforms.
Next up, there are the Sam’s Club deals on at least two Samsung 2015 4K TVs that we know of so far. These consist of the following:
Samsung 75″ Class 4K Ultra HD LED 3D Smart TV – UN75JU7100FXZA on sale on Black Friday for $1,998 instead of its regular, current retail price of $2,599.
Samsung 78″ Class 4K Ultra HD LED 3D Curved Smart TV – UN75Js9100FXZA on sale for $3,498 as opposed to its current retail price of $4,997.99.
These are of course 2015 Samsung 4K TVs but we’ll almost certainly be able to look forward to Black Friday deals for 2016 models from the brand when the sales date actually arrives. That said, the 78 inch JS9100 in particular is one excellent full HDR 4K UHD TV with support for HDR10 standards and superb display specs. The JU7100 lacks HDR specs for color and brightness but is also one especially highly rated 2015 4K TV.
One final expected Black Friday deal for 4K technology from Sam’s Club will be a deal on the new Xbox One S 4K-capable game console with Battlefield 1 and Minecraft included along with an extra controller for $249 instead of the regular price of $353.
Sam’s Club will also be offering several deals on non-4K electronics in the form of the following which we know of so far:
Nest Cam for $149 instead of its regular price of $198
GoPro Hero 4 Silver action camera bundle for $199 instead of a regular retail price of $249
Nikon D3400 dual-lens bundle for $499 as opposed to regular price of $649.
