With the Super Bowl just around the corner, there are always big deals on TVs during the week leading up to the big game.

Double deals on hot TVs

Best Buy is selling a 55-inch LED for store pickup for $399. You have to order this online at BestBuy.com and then go pick it up at a local store.

$399 is very cheap for that size of a screen. 55 inches is great especially if you sit back 12 feet or less from the screen in your home. This is a Westinghouse LED, which is an off-brand, and the picture is great.

Go to BestBuy.com to see which stores have it available and arrange for store pickup at a Best Buy close to you. Some stores have it, some don’t, so you’ll have to look around.

But my favorite deal — if you’re willing to open up your wallet — is one that Amazon started for Prime members that has since been matched and undercut by one dollar!

I’m talking about this Vizio P series 4K TV for $1,999.  This TV offers 4 times the resolution of your current HDTV!

On the question of 4K TV programming, the reality is there’s not a lot of programming yet. Some movies are in 4K and both Netflix and Amazon Prime send out some programming in 4K already. But it will come sooner rather than later.

The Super Bowl is *not* being broadcast in 4K this year, only traditional high def. But these 4K TVs will digitally up-convert the signal to approximate a 4K experience as best they can.

With the Amazon deal, it’s only for Prime members at $1,999. For everybody else, it’s $2,299.  (If you’re a Prime member, you’ll only see $1,999 when it’s in your cart.)

But Costco has matched the price at $1,999. And Sam’s Club has undercut them both by one dollar at $1,998!
