Can’t wait for the Black Friday shopping weekend? Then you’ll be happy to know that Sam’s Club is kicking off its pre-Black Friday sales on November 14. Based on the leaked scans we’ve seen at BestBlackFriday.com and theblackfriday.com, this one-day event will feature some pretty decent deals on electronics, including a number of TVs.

We took a look at several of the Sams’s Club pre-Black Friday sales, which kick off at 7:00 a.m. on November 14, to see how much you’ll be able to save.

TV Deals at Sam’s Club

  • A 65-inch Vizio D65u-D2 4K UHD Smart TV for $998. Currently, the set costs almost $1,500 at Amazon and $1,300 at Sam’s Club and some other stores. (Dell will also feature a Vizio 4K TV, the step-up 60-inch M60-C3 4K UHD TV, for $800.)
  • A 50-inch Vizio D50u-D1 4K UHD Smart TV for $498. This set is currently $728 at Sam’s Club. It’s about $300 at a number of retailers, including BrandsMart and Beach Camera.
  • A 55-inch Hitachi LE55A6R9 1080p TV, which comes with a Roku Streaming Stick, for $398, down from $528; it’s $600 right now at Walmart. The TV uses the Roku Stick to access online content, and it has three HDMI inputs. We tested the 43-inch version of this set, the Hitachi LE53A6R9.
  • A Samsung 55-inch 1080p TV and sound bar speaker bundle for $578. The TV is the UN55J620DAFXZA, a 1080p smart TV with two HDMI inputs, and the sound bar is the HW-HM45C. The claimed savings is almost $300. We believe the TV will be similar to the UNJ6200-series sets; we tested the UN60J6200model, which is in our comprehensive TV Ratings.
