Some thought Sony’s TV business was down for the count when they exited the plasma and LCD panel manufacturing business some years ago. But they’ve made a big comeback in recent years with their offerings in the OLED TV market. Sony doesn’t actually make the raw panels anymore. They buy OLED panels from LG Display and QD-OLED panels from Samsung which they enhance with their own proprietary processing.
It seems to be a winning combination as Sony OLED TVs have been garnering critical praise and winning awards for the last several years. In fact, Sony 4K OLED TVs have won the top spot in the annual TV Shootout, hosted by Value Electronics, for the past two years.
The only problem? The price. Sony OLED TVs command a significant premium over competitive OLED TVs from Samsung and LG and they rarely go on sale.
This fall, there’s an exception to the rule as several of Sony’s most popular 4K OLED TV models are on sale. In addition to the big discounts at checkout, you can actually save even more on select models if you pay for it with an Amazon store card. Using the Amazon credit card to purchase any of the A80K series OLED TVs gets you an additional 5% cash back as a statement credit after purchase.
With this deal, you can pick up a gorgeous (not to mention huge) 77-inch Sony 4K OLED TV for $2698 ($500 below list) and get an additional $135 back after purchase if you pay with the Amazon store card. That’s a net price of around $2,563 with free shipping (sales tax will be applied where necessary).
The 77-inch BRAVIA XR A80K Series 4K Ultra HD TV (model number XR-77A80K) is a Smart TV based on the Google TV platform with access to all of most popular streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO Max. It includes Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 and supports Dolby Atmos immersive surround.
The TV also includes exclusive features for the Playstation 5 and a super low input response time which will make gamers smile. It’s bright enough for daytime viewing but its inky black levels and rich color saturation will make your favorite movies and TV shows pop off the screen when the lights are low.
Amazon doesn’t specifically state when this deal will end but we checked it on October 25th and the sale price and cash back offer were still available.
