Items tagged with Best Buy

OK folks, it's that most wonderful time of year again. No, we're not talking about drinking eggnog and watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for the 100th time; we're talking about the next scheduled "console drop" from a major U.S. retailer. In this case, Best Buy has announced its intent to restock its shelves with Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition consoles. The company says that the big day comes tomorrow, December 15th, as part of a larger 3-day sales bonanza. However, let's get one thing out of the way first: this won't be an in-store sales event. So, don't count on camping out in front of the store in the hopes of laying your... Read more...
Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have come and gone, but that isn't stopping the discount train for barreling down the tracks as we approach Christmas. Such is the case with the Lenovo Yoga 7i, which is a respectable and feature-filled 2-in-1 convertible running Windows 10 Home. The 14-inch version of the Yoga 7i normally is priced at $899, which isn't at all a bad price. However, Best Buy is currently selling the device for $250 off, bringing it down to $649.99 with free shipping. That price gets you a 14-inch Full HD (1920x1080) touch display and an 11th generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor with integrated 12th generation Iris Xe graphics. The processor is paired... Read more...
Black Friday may have come and gone, but good deals are forever. Cyber Monday is officially tomorrow, but Best Buy's biggest Cyber Monday deals have already gone live. We've gone through a whole big pile of deals and pulled out some of the very best ones for you below.  We'll start today with some PC component deals. If you've been perusing system build guides in anticipation of some good deals, Best Buy seems to have a few. It starts with WD's Black SN750 M.2 PCIe solid state drive, which we found to be a very speedy and consistent performer. The 1 TB version of this drive is down to just $115 at Best Buy ($80 off): Those looking for a speedy 144 Hz IPS 1080p gaming monitor might want to... Read more...
Smart TVs are hot ticket items this year for Black Friday, and it’s easy to see why. Prices have dropped dramatically on large screen panels, with 4K TVs measuring as big as 65 inches falling well below the $300 mark. This is good news for folks out there that don’t have a lot of money to burn, and just want the most bang for the buck when it comes to screen size and decent image quality. While we could spend all day laying out deals on high-end QLED or OLED panels that retail for $1,000, $2,000 or even $3,000+, we’re going to focus on budget Smart TVs offering under $500 that should still be pleasing to all but the most upper-crust pixel snobs. Insignia 32-inch Fire TV... Read more...
This is the best time of the year to be in the market for a consumer electronic device, and that is especially true of smart devices. Just head over to Best Buy, for example, and you can score some big discounts on Google's Nest products, and specifically the Nest Hub 7 (shown above) and a two-pack of Nest Audio smart speakers. The Nest Hub 7 is on sale for $49.99 at Best Buy (down from $89.99), and is a great gift idea. At its core, the Nest Hub 7 is a digital picture frame with a 7-inch display, but that is also selling it way short. Its capabilities extend beyond just flipping through digital photos—it can play videos from services like YouTube and HBO Max, stream music, and serve as... Read more...
Black Friday is a great time to splurge on hot tech items for ourselves -- a la new smartphones; perhaps a new PlayStation 5 if you can find one -- but it's also a great time to score deals for our loved ones that are in need. During this somewhat insufferable COVID-19 lull that has blanketed the country, many school age children in particular are in need of a computer to take part in virtual learning. If your school district doesn't provide a laptop for your virtual homeschooler, or if you just need a cheap replacement for a device that they might have broken, we've got a few deals for you that won't break the bank. First up is the Lenovo IdeaPad 1, which is about as cheap a deal as you'll find... Read more...
Early Black Friday deals are sweeping across the web, and one retailer that is hitting the discounts pretty hard is Best Buy. Best Buy has you covered with electronics deals from various categories including gaming consoles, laptops, big screen TVs and even Chromebooks. If you're in the market for a gaming console, Best Buy is carrying the Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle for $299. Nintendo is normally stingy when it comes to discounts on its hardware, so getting the highly popular (and $59) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as a free digital download with the console for $299 is quite the bargain. You even get 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online for free, which makes this deal even harder... Read more...
I'm still amazed at how far prices have fallen for big screen TVs, especially during the deals season that we know find ourselves in. And by "big," I don't mean a mere 55 inches, which is actually a decent size. No, I'm talking about 65-inch and even larger TVs. If that is what you are in the market for, you have options, several 70-inch models that are ridiculously cheap right now. Starting with the least expensive, the Hisense 70-inch class H65 Series TV pictured above is just $399.99 at Best Buy (save $250). To put that into perspective, this massive TV costs less than both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. This is a 4K resolution TV with amenities like HDR (Dolby Vision and HDR10) and... Read more...
We are only weeks away from Black Friday, but why wait if you do not have to? Best Buy is dropping some Black Friday-level savings early, one of which is this powerful ASUS TUF Gaming laptop (model FA506IV-BR7N12) for $799.99. That is $200 below its regular selling price, and a really nice bargain for the hardware that you are getting. On the CPU side, this gaming laptop packs a high-end AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor based on the company's Zen 2 architecture (its newest Zen 3 chips are not in mobile form yet, having just been announced for the desktop). It sports 8 cores and 16 threads with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.2GHz max boost clock, 8MB of L3 cache, 4MB of L2 cache, and a 45W TDP. Riding shotgun... Read more...
There is still a month to go before Black Friday officially arrives, but as retailers are apt to do in recent years, the bargains keep coming earlier and earlier. In that vein, Best Buy is promoting a "Back Friday Ad Deals" event going on right now, with "100s of great deals today," like the Hisense 65-inch 4K smart Android TV you see above. The Hisense 65-inch 4K TV (H6510G) is $249.99 (save $250) right now, which is really low for a television this size, even as 65-inch as become sort of the bang-for-buck sweet spot. And like many modern TV sets, it offers up HDR support (Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG). It also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, and has Chromecast built into it. Samsung... Read more...
If enthusiasts were expecting a better chance at getting a GeForce RTX 3070 this morning than with the preceding GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, then you probably already know by now that those hopes were quickly dashed. Online sales for the GeForce RTX 3070 opened up at 9am ET this morning, and retail websites either quickly buckled under pressure or quickly threw up OOS messages. We were monitoring both Best Buy and Newegg minutes prior to 9am, and kept hitting refresh until we saw "Add to Cart" buttons. At Newegg, we briefly saw a number of third-party GeForce RTX 3070 cards available to order, only to quickly see the "Add to Cart" button disappear, or were greeted with server error... Read more...
NVIDIA would likely be the first to admit that its GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 launches were problem prone. With the former, there were glitches and an overabundance of bots snatching up stock which left many enthusiasts without cards in hand. With the GeForce RTX 3090 launch, additional precautions were taken, but stock was still depleted within mere minutes. It's become clear that NVIDIA's online web store simply isn't equipped to handle the immense demand when it comes to its own Founder Edition cards, so the company is looking for some outside help. As a result, NVIDIA announced in a forum post that Best Buy will become its exclusive retail partner in the United States... Read more...
In case you missed it, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is the hottest thing to hit the PC graphics scene since... well, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti roughly two years ago. We tested NVIDIA's new mainstream gaming flagship yesterday and came away impressed by the sheer power of the Ampere GPU architecture, which doubles the performance of AMD's flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT and far outpaces the outgoing GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The only thing left for gamers to do at this point is to actually purchase the GeForce RTX 3080, and luckily, cards from NVIDIA and from its OEM partners go on sale a little over an hour from now at 9am EST. NVIDIA has set the price of the GeForce RTX 3080 at $699,... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra have barely been on the market for a month, and they're already being deeply discounted. We can't say that it's due to poor sales in particular this early in the game, but these discounts tend to be the case for most Samsung smartphones shortly after launch since the same happened with the Galaxy S20 family. In this case, Amazon is knocking $200 off the price of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which means that they now start at $799 and $1,099 respectively. Both smartphones are packing flagship-caliber features to justify their high price tags, but we can’t help but feel that this lower price point is more in... Read more...
Back in early June, Hewlett-Packard introduced a refreshed Omen 15 which is available both with Intel's potent 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors, or AMD's brawny Ryzen 4000 processors. Here we are two months later, and Best Buy is offering a sweet discount on the 15.6-inch gaming laptop. In this case, the Best Buy deal is on a configuration with a Core i7-10750H processor (6-core/12-thread). Best Buy lists the regular price of this laptop at $1,449.99, but is offering a $200 discount bringing it down to $1,249.99. However, if you're a My Best Buy member (which is free to join), you'll see an "Apply Offer" checkbox (see below) which will provide an extra $100 instant discount.... Read more...
Notebook shoppers looking for a thin and lightweight machine with respectable performance should check out special deals going at the Microsoft Store, Amazon and Best Buy. At all of those retailers, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, which is the latest version, is on sale for $200 off. That discount brings the purchase price to under $800. At Amazon, the Surface Laptop 3 with a 13.5-inch touchscreen, 8 GB of RAM, Core i5 processor, and 128 GB of SSD storage space is on sale. The machine is platinum color with Alcantara covering the keyboard. The regular retail price is $999, and the 20% discount knocks the price to $799 with free shipping. Those wanting more storage space can step up to the version... Read more...
If you find yourself reconnecting with nature and going on adventures during this time of social distancing, why not chronicle your activities on video? Now is the perfect time to consider such a thing—DJI's nifty and ultra-compact Osmo Action is on sale for $249.00 at Amazon and $249.99 at Best Buy right now, down from its $369.99 list price. Granted, this little camera has not been selling for MSRP for the past several months, but this is still the lowest it has been since a brief dip in May. And with this deal, the Osmo Action is also a cheaper alternative to the GoPro Hero8, which offers similar features and sells for $349. One of the standout bullet points is the inclusion of dual...

Around the country, there are still a lot of people who are spending more time at home than usual because of the coronavirus and shutdowns in various communities. That means many active people who are typically out enjoying life are stuck indoors watching movies and TV more than normal. This has led to many people looking for a TV upgrade, and Best Buy has an excellent deal on a 50-inch 4K UHD TV. The deal is on a Toshiba 50-inch TV (model number 50LF621U21), and it has integrated Fire TV software, making it a smart TV that can support streaming movies and TV shows from all major services. The 4K UHD TV supports HDR and has a 2160p native resolution. The usual retail price for the TV is $379.99.... Read more...
With many folks around the country still stuck indoors due to the coronavirus -- and bored out of their mind as a result -- many out there are wishing they had a larger TV for gaming and watching movies in their extended downtime. Not surprisingly, Best Buy currently has some very impressive deals going on a couple of large Roku 4K Smart TVs from TCL that could be the perfect cure for shut-in blues. The first of the TVs is the largest offering, and it's a TCL 75Q825 with a 75-inch a $K UHD HDR panel and mini-LED backlighting. Mini-LED backlighting allows for more precise local dimming and more uniform illumination. TCL also fits the TV with Quantum Dot technology for improved brightness... Read more...
Over the past few months, we’ve seen some good deals on Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 convertible. When we last visited the device, the SKU with an Intel Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD was available for $1,299. However, not everyone has $1,299 to plunk down on a new device. For those people, Best Buy has a hot deal on a new Surface Pro 7 complete with Type Cover for just $599. To put that in perspective, that combo would typically cost you $959, so this represents a savings of $360, and makes it a far better bargain than the entry-level Surface Go 2 with its smaller display and inferior processor. For that price, you’ll get a Core i3-1005G1... Read more...
Tomorrow, those of us here in the United States will celebrate Memorial Day to honor the men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the Military. Memorial Day has also become synonymous with folks flocking to the beach and taking part in sales on all types of retail items. COVID-19 may have changed how many of us are celebrating this weekend, but retailers like Best Buy and Amazon aren’t going to hold back on deals they are providing for customers. Both retailers have some rather tasty deals that are available starting today, and we’ve listed some of the betters one below for you to check out: Best Buy Westinghouse 53-inch 4K UHD HDR Roku TV: $299 ($50 savings)...

The Surface Pro X is a bit of an odd duck in Microsoft’s hardware family. While it looks much like its siblings with a large LCD display, kickstand, optional keyboard and Windows 10 support, the Surface Pro X is powered by an Arm processor instead of an x86-64 processor from Intel. The Surface Pro usually starts at $999, and that configuration will get you 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Stepping up to 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage typically costs you $1,299. However, both Amazon and Best Buy are knocking $400 off that latter configuration’s price, bringing it down to a low $899 – even lower than the base configuration. Microsoft Surface Pro X (8GB/256GB) $899.99 @... Read more...
