Get a great deal on a five-star OLED TV
So, you’ve decided to buy a new TV and you’ve decided it has to be an OLED. Good choice! But which OLED should you buy and how can you be sure you’re getting a great deal? Easy: you keep reading this very page.
There are some incredible OLED TV deals around right now, with some of the best OLED TVs we’ve tested over the last 12 months or so currently cheaper than ever before.
Most of the TVs you’ll find below are 2021 models that are approaching end of life and are therefore heavily discounted. The odd 2020 model is still available, too, with rip-roaring deals to be had if you’re quick.
Without further ado, here are the best cheap OLED TV deals available online.
42-INCH OLED TV
Sony’s first 42-inch OLED is a high-end treat, particularly if picture authenticity is your priority. It sounds great by TV standards, too. The 42-inch LG C2 is still overall the better buy, given its much lower price, but there are many who will feel it’s worth spending the extra on this Sony.
LG’s first 42-inch OLED TV has only been available for five minutes but has already had a big discount. It’s slightly less bright than the bigger C2 models but otherwise has the same features. That should make it a huge hit, particularly with gamers who want a desktop TV with all of the next-gen specs.
48-INCH OLED TV
“An astonishingly good ‘small’ OLED TV” is how we described the 48-inch Sony A90K in our review. For picture authenticity and sound quality, you can’t buy better at this size, and its gaming specs (while not quite up there with the LG C2) are strong.
If you want a cutting-edge 48-inch TV, the OLED48C2 is for you. This is the very latest LG OLED TV with all of the company’s best tech and every gaming feature covered. Do also consider last year’s C1, though, which is available with even bigger discounts and shouldn’t be much of a downgrade.
Let’s cut straight to the chase: this is our favourite TV of 2021. The OLED806 series is just brilliant, offering super-punchy and crisp images, solid sound, Ambilight and loads of next-gen gaming features, and at 48-inches it’s compact enough for any lounge.
55-INCH OLED TV
Unlike Samsung’s S95B, above, Sony’s new QD-OLED TV is priced as you’d expect a premium, next-gen television to be. It’s an undeniably expensive proposition, even with this discount, but if money’s no object, this is the best TV you can currently buy.
While most people will be best served by the C2, above, the G2 is even brighter and punchier and boasts a frame-like design that makes it look particularly brilliant when wall-mounted. Do bear in mind that there’s no stand in the box.
LG’s new C2 is the ideal TV for most people. It’s brighter than any 2021 OLED, produces brilliantly punchy but natural images and boasts every next-gen gaming feature you could ask for. And now it’s available with a discount.
65-INCH OLED TV
If you want the best performance-per-pound LG OLED of 2022 in a truly cinematic size, this 77-inch version of the C2 is what you’re after. It’s got all of the top-notch features of the smaller models but with an extra dose of epicness.
The G2 offers the best 4K picture quality that LG currently produces, boasting not only OLED Evo technology, but also an added heatsink that allows the panel to be pushed to even brighter levels. The design is also lovely (though bear in mind that a wall bracket is included but a stand is not) and every gaming feature imaginable is supported.
While the G2 is an even better performer, the C2 is still the 2022 LG OLED TV that most people should buy, thanks to its irresistible performance-per-pound credentials. It’s got a flawless set of next-gen gaming features, too.
WHEN’S THE BEST TIME TO BUY AN OLED TV?
TV prices fluctuate massively over the course of a year, and knowing the best time to buy can be the difference between bagging a bargain and paying well over the odds. Generally speaking, there are three times of year that are best to buy a new TV: spring, big sales events and big sporting events.
Of these, spring is often the very best. This is because it’s the time of year that all of the previous year’s TVs tend to be sold with huge reductions so that space can be made for the new models that were announced in the January. Generally speaking, TV improvements are fairly incremental from one year to the next and you can usually save yourself hundreds, if not thousands, by opting for last year’s model. A word of warning, though: these are end-of-line models we’re talking about so when they’re gone, they’re gone. Wait too long for the very lowest price and you could end up missing out entirely.
If you don’t want to wait until spring, there are three big sales events to mark in your calendar: Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While Amazon Prime Day moves around a bit (and has already taken place this year), Black Friday and Cyber Monday always take place, respectively, on the first Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving in the US. That means that this year Black Friday should take place on Friday 25th November, and Cyber Monday on Monday 28th November. While these sales events don’t necessarily guarantee the very lowest prices you’ll see all year, you can be pretty sure of getting a deal that’s at least good, and quite possibly great.

While slightly less obvious, big sporting events often really do generate big deals on new TVs. Think Wimbledon, the Olympics and of course football tournaments such as the World Cup, Euros and the FA Cup Final. This year’s Wimbledon is already behind us but, for the first time, the World Cup takes place in the winter, so look out for it starting on 21st November – that’s Black Friday week. Expect deals aplenty.
