The lowest price ever on the best 4K TV under $1,000

If you buy something from a Polygon link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

March Madness kicked off on Monday, and it’s a good week regardless of whether or not you’re into basketball because with it comes a killer deal on our favorite TV, the TCL 6-series. Polygon’s pick for best 4K TV under $1000 went down to $829.99 last month but the March Madness sale beats that price by $10.

Also of note this week: a Dell doorbuster deal on an Alienware Aurora PC, half off a Logitech gaming mouse, $35 off Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on PS4 and Xbox One, and a $15 discount on a 12-month PlayStation Plus membership.

As always, if there’s a deal we missed or a category you’d like to see covered, let us know at @PolygonDeals on Twitter.

Best TV deal: TCL 6-Series 4K TV

In Polygon’s write-up last year, we wrote that “[The TCL 6-Series] outperforms just about every other TV in its price range, and a number of TVs well beyond it.” The 65-inch model is available at an all-time-low price of $819.99 in TCL’s March Madness sale, which is $480 off MSRP and $10 cheaper than the previous discount.

Best PC deal: Alienware Aurora

There are a bunch of good deals on PC hardware at Dell’s Semi-Annual Sale, but the highlight is the doorbuster deal on an Alienware Aurora PC. The specs on this model are impressive — it comes equipped with a state-of-the-art RTX 2070 GPU and a ninth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. The base model starts at $1,599.99, which is $530 off MSRP. The doorbuster deal is only available while supplies last. At the time of writing it was 35 percent claimed.

Best accessory deal: Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Mouse

Logitech’s G402 is a solidly reliable FPS gaming mouse — it’s not fancy but it’s fast, customizable, and sleek. The wired mouse is on sale for $29 right now, which is $30.99 off MSRP.

Best video game deal: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

As the sequel to a prequel, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey works extremely well by building on established lore and refining gameplay mechanics, while delivering a story and setting that I never want to leave. It was one of Polygon’s top 10 games of 2018. Right now, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is on sale on Xbox One and PS4 for $24.99 ($35 off MSRP). We’ve seen it go as low as $19.99 in an Amazon Deal of the Day, but this is still a great deal on a great game.

Best subscription deal: PlayStation Plus

Sony’s PlayStation Plus service is required for online gaming on the PS4, plus includes free monthly games and extra discounts on the PlayStation Store. A yearly membership is typically $59.99, but right now a 12-month code is on sale at Amazon for $44.99.
