Watch for TV commercials advertising a clearance TV sale, check the sales ads that come to you in the mail, listen to the radio for clearance sale advertisements and check the websites for your local electronics retailers. If you do not see anything, try calling the electronic stores directly and asking when the next television clearance sale is happening. Consumer Reports also recommends looking for those deals in November or December to get the best price.
CNET recommends visiting online retailers like SlickDeals, FatWallet and Woot to find deals on multiple electronics, including clearance televisions. Holiday sales like Black Friday and 4th of July weekend are also a common time for TVs to go on clearance.
Cyber Monday is another common time for clearance TV sales, when retailers like Amazon.com try to entice buyers with steep discounts on various items, including televisions. The supply of clearance TVs is typically limited, so act quickly on these sales whenever you discover them. Cyber-deals do not let you look at or test out the TV before buying it, but you can get a cheaper price.
Used TVs can be found at clearance prices, so also consider second-hand stores, Goodwill and private moving sales to find a discount for a television.
