The best Black Friday deals you need to know about in 2017

With Black Friday a week away, it's time to narrow down your spending strategy in preparation for the biggest shopping day of the year.'s Phil Dengler has broken down the best deals worth pursuing at Amazon, Best Buy, Kohl's, Macy's, and Walmart this year.

"In many ways, we do think the deals are better this year," Dengler told Friday morning. "4K TVs are cheaper than ever, and a large percentage of our readers plan on getting one of the many deals."

Dengler specifically singled out Best Buy's Sharp 50-inch Class LED 2160p Smart 4K Ultra Roku HDTV for $179.99 as an extraordinary deal this year. He initially thought the offer was a mistake on Best Buy's part.

"Last year's top TV deal was a Toshiba 49-inch 4K TV for $199.99. The deal this year is an inch larger and $20 less in price, so things are moving in the right direction for shoppers. Just a few years ago, 4K TVs that big were hundreds of dollars more expensive," Dengler added.

The National Retail Federation estimates that 164 million people will shop over the Thanksgiving weekend holiday.
