Best Buy hands out Free TVs? Sounds like Black Friday 2010 has already started.
Best Buy offers a hot bundle deal on TVs online this week. When you buy any TV priced $899 and up (excluding Sony TVs) then you get an HDTV for free. The free TV is a 15-inch Dynex HD Ready TV with a $149.99 value.

"Free TV" has the ring of a great Black Friday sales promotion. This Best Buy Free TV bundle deal is joining the free GPS with iPod touch purchase we reported about yesterday. When you buy a new iPod touch you get an Insignia GPS valued at $89.99 for free.
Back to the free LCD HDTV deal. This deal of course only makes sense if the Best Buy TV prices match up with that of other vendors like Amazon. Additionally you should have a use for a small 15-inch TV. Such a TV is ideal for a kid's room or a den.
I did some tests to see if this free TV bundle deal is really a great deal or just sounds great. The best selling TV on Best Buy right now is the 46-inch Samsung LN46C670. That TV is not great for comparing prices as it is an Best Buy exclusive. The 47-inch LG 47LE5400 is the 4th best selling TV on Best Buy and is on sale for $1,299.99 (price in cart). The same TV is also on sale on Amazon but for only $1,039.98. In this case you still save $100 buying the LG 47LE5400 on Amazon despite the free TV throw in from Best Buy.
Another TV from the best selling TVs on Best Buy is the 65-inch Panasonic TC-P65S2 selling for $1,999.99. The same TV sells on Amazon for $1,897. The Best Buy Free TV deal saves you about $50 on this TV.
What this means is that the Best Buy Free TV deal can be a good deal, but you need to compare prices for the TV you have set your eyes on.
