In case you haven't been paying attention, there have been some rather amazing deals on smart TVs recently. In particular, TCL Roku TVs have been available at incredibly low prices over the past few months.
When we last visited TCL's 55-inch 55R6176 Series Roku TV, it was selling for a pretty hot (at the time) $579.99, which represented a $220 savings compared to the regular price. However, Electronic Express (via Rakuten) is selling the same TV for $549.99. While that is only a $30 additional savings over the last hot deal, there's more where that came from.
If you apply the coupon code EE74 at checkout, Rakuten will take an additional $75 off the price of the television, bringing it down to $475 with free shipping and no tax (well, depending on where you live). For Rakuten members, you'll also earn 1,425 points with the purchase (worth $14.25), which can be used on a future purchase.
The 55R617 is featured-packed -- to say the least -- supposing 4K resolutions and Dolby Vision HDR10 standards. In addition, it has local light dimming across 120 zones. Other features include three HDMI 2.0a ports (HDCP 2.2) support, a single USB 2.0 port, wired Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
The TV also comes with a Bluetooth-enabled voice remote that allows you to launch movies and apps, switch inputs, adjust volume or change channels using the sound of your voice.
