The silliest thing you could do this holiday season is pay full price for a barebones game console. Okay, maybe it's not the absolute silliest -- going door-to-door singing Halloween songs while dressed up like Santa Claus would rank somewhere up there -- but it's certainly unnecessary with Microsoft and Sony pushing so many promotions. One of the latest is a free Xbox One controller offer at Best Buy. For a limited time (and we don't know how long), Best Buy is offering a free limited edition Halo 5: Guardians wireless controller for the Xbox One when you purchase from a select batch of Xbox One...

Do you know an Apple fan who made the nice list this year? If so, you might consider getting them one of Apple's smartwatch devices. Your timing is good because Best Buy is now selling the Apple Watch Sport for $249, which is $100 off its normal selling price of $349. That's the best deal we've seen for Apple's wearables line to date.It's even better than the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

The... Read more...
