If you missed picking up a great deal on a TV during Amazon Prime Day 2020, Best Buy has you covered. The electronics retailer is currently offering discounts on plenty of TV models that might seem familiar to Prime Day shoppers — including savings on Amazon Fire TV Edition televisions from Toshiba and Insignia. Best Buy also has sale prices on Samsung sets and is continuing to discount one of our favorite TVs from Sony too.

Notable Best Buy TV discounts are below. As always, prices and inventory may change without notice, but were accurate at time of publication.

Toshiba

First up is this Fire TV Edition from Insignia, model NS-32DF310NA19. We don’t like Fire TV as much as Roku because Fire TV menus push Amazon content too much and are more confusing in general compared to the simplicity of Roku TV. But it does have built-in Alexa, pairs well with an Echo Dot (pictured) and this price is $20 cheaper than the equivalent Roku at Amazon.

The first TV on this list that we have reviewed, the 65-inch XBR-X900H is at its lowest price ever, down from its original list price of $1,600 and now just $100 more than the competing TCL 6-Series. This excellent Sony delivers the Android TV operating system as well as superb image quality and the kind of next-generation connectivity that outdoes the Roku and other like-priced sets — just in time for the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Sure it’s a big step up in price from the two above, but the savings is also big.

Best Buy

Samsung has a few relatively expensive “Lifestyle” TVs on sale at Best Buy, including SerifSero and Terrace, but this one makes the most practical sense to us. The Frame is designed to mimic a picture on the wall, complete with a built-in art store and the ability to sense motion in the room to display art when you enter. Even on sale it’s a lot more expensive than typical 65-inch TVs — and it won’t perform as well as the Sony above, for example — but the artist in you might have other priorities.

This thing is huge and the savings is almost as big. If you’re looking for a truly massive TV picture it’s difficult, if not impossible, to find something this big in this price range (that’s not a projector). Yes it’s a Samsung, but this RU8000 series is not nearly as tricked-out as the company’s QLED models, which will likely have better picture quality. It’s also not exactly new, having first gone on sale in March 2019. Still, it’s an 82-inch Samsung TV for $1,400 — nuff said.

Toshiba

This is the cheapest 43-inch TV in the sale with Amazon’s Fire TV system and just like the others its biggest feature is built-in Alexa, available by talking into the remote control — and just like the others we’d recommend the Roku version instead for around the same price. Both are 1080p resolution TVs, not 4K, but at this size it’s tough to appreciate any difference. 

Note that we reviewed an earlier version of the TV linked below, but we expect this one to be basically identical.

Toshiba

What’s that? You want a 4K 43-inch TV anyway? Here you go. This Toshiba is basically identical to the 1080p version above aside from the higher resolution and $40 higher price. Currently the Roku 4K model at Amazon is $10 cheaper.
