LG Preempts Black Friday with ‘Best Prices' of 2018

Black Friday used to be a big deal. Die-hard shoppers waited with great anticipation to see what kind of crazy deals retailers would come up with the day after Thanksgiving. These days you have to wonder about the fate of The Big Sale Day considering how retailers have been invoking Black Friday” in their advertising for months now. Black Friday is certainly not what it used to be.

Perhaps that’s why LG decided to unveil its 2018 Black Friday Season promotion nearly two weeks before November 23. Why wait?

Yesterday, the company announced special pricing on eight models across its entire TV lineup, including a couple OLED TVs and a new 86-inch 4K/Ultra HD model marked down 44% to $2,500 — and those are just a few of the “dozens of TV models” LG is offering at the “best prices of the year.”

The eight TVs, available at reduced prices now through December 1, are as follows:

OLED C8 Series
All are HDR-enabled 4K OLED smart TVs featuring voice control and LG’s AI ThinQ technology.
