The Black Friday sales event is aging, but it doesn't get old and it is far from dead.

When the first signs of the Holiday season appear, reports appear that say that Black Friday is dead. It is an annual tradition to trash Black Friday before it is showing its face. The argument is that consumers can get deals all year round because of online shopping. This is just not true as demonstrated impressively this year by the Black Friday deals on 4K TVs.

Black Friday 2016 advertise 4K TV deals including a  $199.99 for a 49-inch 4K Smart TV$249.99 for a 50-inch 4K Smart TV and $298 for a 55-inch 4K Smart TV. Last year the lowest priced 4K TV in Black Friday ads was a $399.99 55-inch Element 4K Smart TV. All bargain doorbuster TV deals below $300 have been on 1080p TVs. When this year was a 49-inch Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Smart TV on sale for under $200? Right. never.

This Best Buy Black Friday doorbuster deal will be very hard to get, as well as the other two mentioned 4K TV doorbuster deals announced by Target and Walmart. These three standout Black Friday 2016 deals are though by far not the only Black Friday 4K TV deals.

The deals are across the whole range of 4K TVs beginning with bargain 4K TVs, mid-range 4K TVs, HDR 4K TV and high-end OLED 4K TVs. Find deals in the list of 4K TVs advertised by Target, Walmart and Best Buy for Black Friday.

There are already many HDR 4K TVs on sale now in early Black Friday sales. On Saturday, the Sam's Club 1-Day Black Friday sale sold out the advertised 4K TV deals before noon. The demand for 4K TVs is already high 10 days before Thanksgiving, when most Black Friday sales begin. The Consumer Technology Association estimates that consumers will buy 4.5 million 4K TVs during the Holiday season.

Black Friday offers again big deals, but not all are easy to get and deal hunters need to put the work in. The Sam's Club sale yesterday was easy to shop, as long as shoppers either stayed up late or got up early in the morning. On Thanksgiving Day, sleeping in is not an option to score the best Black Friday deals that will be on sale online.

To get the in-store only Black Friday 2016 doorbuster, deal hunters need to invest hours lining up at stores before the doors open for the Black Friday sale. Ideally they are organized in family and friends teams to be able to score all the deals they want. Deal hunting on Black Friday was never easy, but it pays off. 

In past years, Walmart made it easy to purchase select doorbuster deals with the 1-Hour Guarantee promotion. This year Walmart is not offering this short cut to doorbuster deals. Walmart shoppers need to line-up early enough to score a wristband for the doorbuster deal of their choice. Best Buy has the same wristband system for its doorbuster deals including the $199.99 4K TV doorbuster.

The best chance to score doorbuster deals online that are advertised as in-store only is on Amazon. The giant online retailer has in the past matched the most popular doorbuster deals of Best Buy, Target and Walmart with similar online deals.
