You can take the first step to getting your hands on Microsoft’s hot new 10.8-inch Surface 3 today by placing a preorder. The Surface Pro 3’s smaller sibling has been popping up at online retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and – of course – the Microsoft Store. Microsoft is calling the Surface 3 the “Perfect productivity device for school, home, and on the go.”Microsoft is gunning for a broader slice of the tablet audience with the $499.99 Surface 3, which is smaller than the Surface Pro 3 and doesn’t have quite the same performance. Still, the tablet’s hardware looks pretty good on paper: a 1920x1280... Read more...
Microsoft is really trying to amp up Windows Phone sales, especially at the low end. Microsoft’s global smartphone market share is in the low single digits, and it has countered by offering phones like the Lumia 520 and Lumia 635 for as low as $20 and $30 off-contract respectively to trigger demand. Microsoft is trying yet another promotion to get its smartphones into the hands of consumers, this time via a promotion involving the Xbox One gaming console. Customers that purchase the Xbox One Halo: The Master Chief bundle at Best Buy for $349.99 will receive a Lumia 635 smartphone free of charge.... Read more...
Best Buy last month gave Samsung's Gear VR Innovator Edition headset a test run by demonstrating the wearable in 100 of its locations scattered throughout the United States, giving customers an opportunity to experience what most have only read about. Apparently pleased with the response, Best Buy is getting ready to sell the headset in its stores tomorrow, March 27.This will be the first time that Samsung's Gear VR Innovator Edition will be made available to purchase in physical store locations. Up until now, it's only been available online -- Best Buy has a product listing on its website, and... Read more...
Although Best Buy runs deals on Gamers Club Unlocked from time to time, the electronics retail giant is making a permanent price reduction to its two-year subscription service. Instead of forking over a wallet-stressing $99 for a two-year membership, you’ll now only have to part with $30. If you’re a heavy gamer that buys all the latest releases (or even likes to splurge on used games) that initial $30 will be recouped very quickly. Some of the perks including with a Gamers Club Unlocked membership include: 20 percent off new physical video game software20 percent off Amiibo figures10 percent bonus... Read more...
Quite literally, virtual reality is set to make a major play in mainstream courtesy of Samsung and Best Buy. Beginning tomorrow, February 8, 100 select Best Buy locations scattered throughout the United States will begin demoing Samsung's Gear VR headset, allowing curious customers to try it and see what all the fuss is about.Up until now, VR has mostly lived and breathed online -- it's not like you can march into a Walmart and pick up an Oculus Rift. Part of the reason is because the technology has only recently been aggressively focused on home consumers, so there aren't that many worthwhile... Read more...
Motorola released its flagship Droid Turbo smartphone just over a month ago, but that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until after the New Year to get one for an extremely attractive price point — that is, if you’re an existing customer or planning on making a switch to Verizon Wireless.The Droid Turbo normally sells for $199 with a new, two-year contract, and that isn’t changing with the Best Buy’s newest promotion. However, those that qualify for a device upgrade through Verizon Wireless can score a $100 Best Buy gift card when they purchase the phone either with a new two-year upgrade or with... Read more...
One of the reasons to give thanks today is for not having to brave the crowds or camp outside your local Best Buy to score some hot deals on electronics. Yes, we realize it's only Thursday, but like most retailers, Best Buy has kicked off its Black Friday sale early -- really early -- and to the chain's credit, many of the deals are available online. So while your less savvy neighbor Joe is slipping his way down the winter roads to wait in long lines, you can kick back in your pajamas with a cup of coffee as you score the same deals as him, but with much less hassle.At present, some of Best Buy's...

One of the risks of being an early adopter of technology is that at any given moment, a price cut is bound to appear. In fact, that's an inevitability in most cases. Be that as it may, it's still a gut punch when it happens, especially so quickly, as is the case with LG's G Watch. Having only been on the market since July, Best Buy just slashed the price of the G Watch to $160. That's down from the smartwatch's original MSRP of $229 and it applies to both the black and white models. It's not known if the price cut will turn into a temporary one or if Best Buy is trying to clear out inventory in... Read more...
It used to be that we'd rely on Twitter user @evleaks (real name Evan Blass) to inevitably post press shots of unannounced or otherwise unreleased products, along with with specs and other details ahead of schedule. But with online retailers jumping the gun these days, we can see why Blass went into retirement. Even Best Buy is prone is the occasional goof up, such was the case when it posted a product page for Motorola's Moto 360 smartwatch. Back in May, a French-language website claimed the Moto 360 was headed to retail in July and that it would cost 249 euros (around $340 in U.S. currency).... Read more...
There's money to be saved if you don't always have to own the latest and greatest flagship version of a product. For instance, if you head over to Best Buy's website or pop into one of the electronic chain's brick-and-mortar locations, you can walk away with the original (and still pretty snazzy) HTC One (M7) for a dollar, provided you ink a two-year service agreement with Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T. The discounted price is in effect today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) only, so if you're on the fence, you'll have to decide relatively quick. You'll also have to decide on a color -- the $1 pricing... Read more...
Without getting into a long-winded debate about the hardware and platform differences between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the main advantage Sony's console has over Microsoft's is that it's a $100 less expensive at $399 versus $499. Of course, the Xbox One comes with a second generation Kinect motion controller, so while the price difference isn't an arbitrary one, it's a forced purchase since you can't buy the console sans Kinect. That said, a temporary price drop just took away the PS4's cost advantage, at least in part. At present, both Best Buy and Walmart are selling the Xbox One on sale... Read more...
Time and again, we bear witness to the fact that if you wait long enough, just about any smartphone will eventually reach the low, low price of free. Such phenomena even applies to iPhone models, the latest example being the iPhone 5C, which Best Buy is offering at no cost to customers who sign up for a two-year service contract with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. The iPhone 5C was never terribly expensive to begin with. Pricing started at $99 (on-contract) when it debuted three months ago, and while that's still the going rate if you purchase it online at Apple, Best Buy's been reducing the price... Read more...
If you're a fan of the HTC One but wish it had a bigger, phablet-sized display, you're in luck. HTC's enlarged One Max is gearing up for a retail launch. You can already pre-order the device on Best Buy's website for $250 with a two-year service contract, and according to the electronics chain, it's scheduled to arrive at Sprint on November 15, 2013 (this Friday). Sprint's been curiously quiet about the impending launch, though the wireless carrier did post a software update page for the HTC One Max on its website. The November 15th launch date is mentioned twice on that page, so barring any big... Read more...
