We’ve done all of the work for you, bubbling up the best deals Best Buy has to offer.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 ($399, originally $549; bestbuy.com)
We’ve been in love with Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook 2 since we first laid our eyes on its bright red exterior. It has a stellar QLED 13.3-inch touchscreen that makes it easy to switch between using it as a tablet or a laptop as you browse the internet, get some work done or play your favorite Android game. It comes with 4GB of memory, 64GB of storage and an Intel Celeron processor — all of which is just enough to have a reliable experience on a Chromebook.
Samsung Galaxy Book Pro ($999, originally $1,499; bestbuy.com)
For those who need more than a Chromebook, Samsung’s Galaxy Book Pro is on sale and it’s a steal. For $999, you get a 15.6-inch AMOLED display, an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a 1TB solid-state drive for storage. Samsung’s S Pen stylus is included in the box, allowing you to write notes or sketch your latest idea directly on the screen. As an added bonus, the Galaxy Book Pro comes with Windows 11 Home preinstalled so you don’t have to mess with updating out of the box.
Razer Blade 15 ($1,399, originally $2,299; bestbuy.com)
The Razer Blade 15 is an excellent laptop designed specifically for gamers. It has a 15.6-inch 4K OLED display that’s powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card that’ll play your favorite titles at 60 frames per second. What makes the Blade 15 so appealing is that it combines power with portability, giving you a laptop for work, school and play.
Microsoft Surface Go 2 ($299, originally $399; bestbuy.com)
Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 has been updated and replaced by the Go 3, but at $299, it’s a solid two-in-one that’s perfect for young kids or students. You’re effectively getting a tablet with a 10.5-inch display, but you can purchase the Type Cover separately for $99 — bringing the total for the netbook-like device to the original asking price of $399. Not a bad deal for someone who needs a portable yet capable device.
Apple 13-Inch MacBook Pro ($1,299, originally $1,799; bestbuy.com)
Apple’s Intel-powered MacBook Pro lineup is seeing its share of discounts this holiday season. For example, this model is $500 off its usual $1,799 price tag. It comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB of memory and 512GB of SSD storage. That’s a powerful setup, bolstered by MacOS Monterey. It even has a Touch ID sensor next to Apple’s TouchBar, allowing you to unlock the MacBook Pro or sign into apps with just your fingerprint.
LG 65-Inch Class C1 Series OLED 4K Smart TV ($1,799, originally $2,099; bestbuy.com)
LG’s 65-inch OLED 4K Class C1 Series TV sure is a looker, and even moreso with a $300 discount, dropping it to $1,799. At that price, you get an OLED TV for deeper blacks and brighter, more vivid colors that are sure to pop on the screen. If you’re a gamer, you’ll be happy to know it’s compatible with FreeSync and G-Sync to ensure every gaming session looks as good as possible. For smart home fanatics, you can use either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa as you would a dedicated smart device — only it’s all built directly into your TV.
Samsung 70-Inch 4K Crystal UHD Smart TV ($599, originally $749; bestbuy.com)
Samsung’s 70-inch Crystal UHD is large and in charge. Okay, maybe we’re exaggerating a little bit. But seriously, at $599 you’re getting a lot of screen for not a lot of money. You’ll get a 4K HDR experience with a refresh rate of 60Hz. It’s running Samsung’s Smart TV Tizen platform to stream your favorite shows without the need for a set-top box, and if you’re so inclined, you can even use Alexa or Google Assistant directly through the TV itself.
Insignia 24-Inch Smart Fire TV ($99, originally $169; bestbuy.com)
Best Buy’s Insignia electronics brand is discounting a 24-inch HD TV to just $99, down from $169.99. For under $100 you get a 720p HD TV that has popular streaming apps and services built directly into its Fire OS operating system. It’s a solid choice for a secondary TV in the kitchen, your kids’ playroom or maybe even for your back patio. It even works with Amazon’s Alexa.
Get up to $1,100 off an iPhone 13
If you’re in the market for a new iPhone 13, you can get up to $1,100 off any model when you buy one from Best Buy. There are some qualifications in the fine print you’ll need to meet, but it’s possible to save some serious cash when buying an iPhone 13 from Best Buy. For example, AT&T is offering up to $1,100 when you trade in your current phone and sign up for an unlimited plan. Verizon and T-Mobile have similar promotions, all of which require a trade-in and signing up for service on an unlimited plan. For more information, and to comb through the finer details of each offer, visit this iPhone 13 deals page.
Save up to $400 off a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Z Flip 3
If you’ve been on the fence about getting a smartphone with a foldable display, maybe Best Buy’s promotion for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Z Flip 3 will persuade you to make the move. You can get up to $400 off the Galaxy Z Fold 3 when you activate a new line of service, making the foldable phone $1,399. If you want a more traditional style of phone, the Z Flip 3 is $849 — $150 off — with a new line of service.
Google’s Pixel 6 is a well-rounded Android phone with one of the best cameras on any smartphone, full stop. Right now, you can get either the Verizon Wireless 128GB or 256GB Pixel 6 from Best Buy at a discount of $5 per month over the course of 30 months, for $150 off the total price. For some reason, the promotion doesn’t extend to the larger Pixel 6 Pro — but the Pixel 6 is enough phone for most.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit ($59.99, originally $99; bestbuy.com)
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is an augmented reality game that essentially turns your living room into a playable Mario Kart course. You’ll drive an actual remote-controlled car around your home, which comes to life on your Switch screen as an interactive track complete with enemies, hazards and all the fun chaos that comes with a great Mario Kart race. It’s a really fun blend of digital and physical play, and it’s available at its lowest price yet right now.
Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle ($299, originally $369; bestbuy.com)
Nintendo usually offers a Mario Kart 8 bundle every Black Friday, but it’s sweetened the pot a bit for 2021. On top of getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — an excellent kart racer that just about every Switch owner should have anyway — this bundle also includes three months of Nintendo Switch Online. That allows you to play games online right out of the box while also getting you access to cloud saves and a sizable library of NES and SNES classics, including The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario World.
You’re getting all of that for the system’s base $299 price, which essentially means you’re getting $70 of free stuff. Just note that this bundle includes the standard Nintendo Switch, meaning you won’t get the bigger, bolder display found on the $349 Nintendo Switch OLED.
Blink Video Doorbell ($34.99, originally $49.99; bestbuy.com)
For anyone in the market for a smart security system, Blink’s video doorbell can offer some serious peace of mind for a super-low price. It allows you to answer your door no matter where you are by sending you phone notifications whenever someone rings your video doorbell or whenever motion is detected. Plus, the system boasts an easy setup, customizable alerts and two-way audio for a user-friendly experience.
Google Nest Hub 2nd-Gen ($49.99, originally $99.99; bestbuy.com)
This deal on the Nest Hub might just win Black Friday. For $49.99 you can score the 2nd-Gen Nest Hub, which offers good sound, a bright display and instant access to the Google Assistant. We think it deserves a spot on your nightstand, since it features sleep tracking.
Chromecast With Google TV ($39.99, originally $49.99; bestbuy.com)
As our budget pick for a streaming device, the Chromecast with Google TV is a seriously impressive device that plugs right into the HDMI port on your box. It’s running a whole new interface from Google that makes it easy to find content and deeply integrates with the Google Assistant. All the major streaming players are here, including Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max and Discovery+ among others.
Lenovo Smart Clock 2 With Wireless Charging Dock ($69.99, originally $89.99; bestbuy.com)
Lenovo’s smart clock acts as the perfect all-in-one device to keep on your nightstand, and at only $69.99, it’s practically a steal.

Plus, Lenovo’s smart clock can charge up to two additional devices at once and acts as a nightlight to illuminate your way without having to wake anyone up.
Google Pixel Buds A-Series Earbuds ($79.99, originally $99.99; bestbuy.com)
If you have a Google Pixel, the Pixel Buds A-Series are an excellent option and an even better one at just $79.99. These earbuds fit snugly into your ear and don’t protrude as much as other leading earbuds. They also have multiple microphones onboard that make for clear dictation and some neat Google Assistant integrations. Lastly, they’re available in a few fun colors.
Sony WF-1000XM4 Earbuds ($248, originally $279; bestbuy.com)
Sony’s WF-1000XM4 aren’t cheap earbuds, but rather some of the best portable audio you can purchase. Discounted to $248, these earbuds excel with a mix you can customize in real time thanks to an equalizer and offer the best active noise cancellation we’ve experienced on any earbuds we’ve tested.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones ($248, originally $349; bestbuy.com)
Like the Sony earbuds above, these WH-1000XM4 headphones are our pick for best noise-canceling and over-ear headphones. With multiple microphones onboard and a processor, they have the unique ability to block out a ton of sound. Better yet, these last for nearly 30 hours with noise cancellation turned on.
Bella Pro Series 8-Quart Digital Air Fryer in Stainless Steel ($49.99, originally $129.99; bestbuy.com)
This heavy-duty air fryer is perfect for easily preparing crispy and evenly cooked food without using any excess oil. The air fryer’s 8-quart capacity allows you to cook up to 6.5 pounds of food at once, and its nine preset cooking programs make doing so a breeze.

Nespresso Vertuo Chrome by Breville With Aeroccino 3 ($194.96, originally $259.95; bestbuy.com)
Upgrade your morning routine with this Nespresso machine, which can whip up luxurious drinks in minutes at the press of a button. The unit’s large-capacity removable tank allows you to refill less and brew more. With this purchase, you’ll also get an Aeroccino 3 milk frother, which is perfect for creating specialty drinks like cappuccinos rather than breaking the bank at a coffee shop.
Insignia 115-Can Beverage Cooler ($239.99, originally $299.99; bestbuy.com)
Save refrigerator space while keeping your drinks perfectly chilled with this beverage cooler by Insignia, which can hold up to 115 cans.
