In case you missed it, Amazon has some amazing deals on electronics leading up to Black Friday at the end of the month. Now is a great time to save on big-ticket items like televisions so you can splurge on your next big travel adventure.

For example, you can snag a Samsung Flat 55-Inch QLED 4K Smart TV for 42 percent off right now. The HDR- and Alexa-compatible TV usually goes for nearly $1,200, but it’s currently available for just $698 — that comes out to $500 in savings! 

It’s powered by quantum dots, allowing the screen to show more than a billion shades of color. It also comes with a quantum processor capable of upscaling content to 4K for seriously sharp images. But aside from a dazzling display, the television has a variety of smart features, including OneRemote to control all of your compatible devices, Bixby voice command, and SmartThings, which lets you control additional smart devices like home appliances and speakers.

When it’s not in use, the smart TV can double as a decorative piece of art rather than a standard black screen: It comes with ambient mode, which you can customize with anything from personal photos to artwork. You’ll definitely want to pull this trick out when you host company.

Amazon shoppers say that the TV delivers on high-quality picture and sound, and they love all of its smart features. “My current TV is not inferior by any means. But the Samsung Q60 QLED blows away my current one,” one reviewer wrote. “The picture quality is outstanding… The Netflix app is very fast and snappy, and Youtube loads very fast… Oh, my favorite feature, when I turn ON the TV, I can pick up exactly where I left off, isn't that amazing?”

Another said, “This is the perfect starting point for consumers who want a premium QLED TV without breaking the bank. The edge-lit QLED screen is truly a joy to watch. The Quantum HDR 4X brightness and vivid colors really is a sight to see. I haven’t seen any noticeable light bleed on the edges, and it performs really well in well-lit rooms. Ambient mode is another feature that is impressive.”

The TV is available in multiple sizes, all of which are currently marked down well below their original prices. Why wait until Black Friday when you can take advantage of this sale right now?
