The Best Cyber Monday Sales You Can Get at Best Buy

Our colleagues at the Verge are technology experts. So when they tell us that there are good Cyber Monday deals at Best Buy  — well, we look through those deals, add a few finds of our own, and bring the more-useful-to-the-average-non-technophile stuff to you.

There are substantial discounts to take advantage of, like an Ultimate Ears bluetooth speaker for $40, a MacBook Air for $200 off or an iPad for $80 off, a completely wireless pair of bluetooth earbuds for only $30, and a 65-inch LG OLED TV (which is seriously one of the best TVs we think you can buy). But act quickly, because things are selling out fast! Once an item’s stock is low enough online, it becomes an in-store purchase only.

We should note that Best Buy is constantly updating its deals, and we’re constantly watching. So check back here frequently for updates of sales on big-ticket appliances, vacuum cleaners, home security systems, smart speakers, and phones. Incidentally, for more early tech deals, check out our Cyber Monday coverage of the Amazon and Walmart sales.

Speakers

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Bluetooth Speaker

The U.E. Boom Bluetooth speaker has long been one of the top speakers you can buy. This four-inch-tall sibling is ultraportable — and water-resistant, for any dreams you may have of listening to music poolside.

JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker

Another great water-resistant speaker with a slightly different form factor and a 12-hour battery (as opposed to the ten-hour Ultimate Ears above).

Apple Home Pod

A smart speaker with full sound and beautiful design, now for $100 off.

Sonos Beam Soundbar

As TV sets get thinner, their sound gets worse. This speaker from Sonos, who make the best multi-room sound system we’ve ever tried, is an upgrade for any set.

Earbuds and headphones

JLab Audio JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds

You’re not going to get the best audio quality from these, but $30 is practically stocking-stuffer territory. And if you lose them, which we all do eventually, you won’t feel that bad.

Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds

If you don’t want to spend the money on AirPods or AirPods Pro, these earbuds are a good alternative. Especially if you have big earholes.

Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats3

Also a great option for those with big earholes. They’re lighter than the Jabras and will stay in better during workouts.

Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Studio 3 Wireless Headphones

These solid headphones, which also come in gray and tan, are $140 off.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones

David Pogue’s favorite noise-canceling headphones are $70 off.

Appliances

Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal Pro Cordless Stick Vacuum

Strat writer Lori Keong loved the power of this vacuum. And now you can get it for $200 off.

iRobot Roomba 614 Self-Charging Robot Vacuum

There really is no more enjoyable way to vacuum than by letting a robot do it for you.

KitchenAid Professional 500 5QT, 450 Watt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer

This kitchen staple has never been cheaper. This model doesn’t have a the typical tilting head, which means it is more powerful. (For more great gifts for bakers, click here.)

KitchenAid Pasta Cutter and Fresh Prep Attachment Bundle

If the person you’re shopping for already has a mixer, why not get him a great accessory, like this pasta cutter that’s 60 percent off?

Samsung 28-Cu.-Ft. French Door Refrigerator

You deserve a bigger fridge. Or at least a better one. This full-depth French-door option from Samsung can fit all of your holiday meal prep. (The adjustable shelves will accommodate a Christmas Ham.) And it even has an ice-maker with a bin that’s actually big enough to handle company.

Insignia 6-qt Multifunction Pressure Cooker

If you want an actual Instant Pot, you can expect to pay between $50 and $100 for it. Or you can get Best Buy’s house-brand equivalent, which has nearly 2,000 reviews and a 4.7-star rating.

Keurig K Classic K50 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker

Doing your own pour-over in the morning may make you feel like a home barista, but a K cup is fast and simple.

Braun - Series 9 Wet/Dry Electric Shaver

Makes it easy to get a close shave wherever you are — although most of us would prefer that you stick to the bathroom.

Video game systems and accessories

Sony Playstation 4 Pro Console

Comes with a huge 1 TB hard drive for $100 off the original price.

Microsoft XBox 1

Save $150, and it comes with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Nintendo Joy-Con Controllers

These joy-con controllers for Nintendo Switch also come in a lot of other colors.

Laptops, desktops, tablets, and accessories

13.3" Apple MacBook Air With 8GB of Memory and 128GB Solid State Hard Drive

This lightweight MacBook Air, which should be good for most users who don’t plan on editing a full-length film on their computers, is $200 off.

Dell Inspiron 23.8" Touch-Screen All-In-One

8GB of memory and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSDs are quieter than traditional hard drives). Plus it’s a touch screen, which is nice for some programs.

10.2" Apple 32 GB iPad with WiFi

2019 iPads are as much as $100 off, including this 32GB model that’s marked down $80.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Comes with a fast and capable Intel i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. And they throw in the cover (usually another $129) basically for free.

HP DeskJet 2680 Wireless All-In-One Printer

Do people still use printers? If so, now you can too. And for only $20.

TVs and accessories

LG 55-inch C9 OLED TV

OLED TVs have the best picture available, with the highest contrast and darkest blacks. Since they don’t need backlights, they’re also the thinnest screens available. You’re going to pay a premium for that compared to other types of TVs, but it can be worth it. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 55-inch C9. There are also sales on the 65-inch version and an enormous 77-inch model.

65" LG B9 Series OLED 4K TV with HDR

The B9 is step below the C9, but the difference will be imperceptible for most people.

Samsung 65" Q60 Series 4K Smart TV with HDR

A beautiful picture at a great price.

TCL 75" 4 Series 4k Smart TV with HDR

TCL provides an excellent balance between price and quality. And it has built-in Roku, which our expert called “one of the best interfaces.” The 55-inch model might be the sweet spot for most buyers. It’s only $280.

Insignia 50” 4k LED SmartTV with HDR – Fire TV Edition

This is the perfect basement TV. Insignia is Best Buy’s store brand, which means you won’t get as vivid a picture as you would from a brand-name set, but it’s a good enough TV for most situations. And it comes with an Echo Dot!

Roku 4K Streaming Stick

Make any TV a Smart TV.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Or maybe you prefer Amazon’s interface.

Google Chromecast Ultra

As opposed to other streaming devices, Chromecast doesn’t need a separate remote. You can control everything from your phone. If you don’t have a 4K TV (and thus don’t need the ability to stream in 4K), the Google Chromecast is marked down to $25.

Tech toys

DJI Mavic 2 Pro Quadcopter with Remote Controller

Everybody loves a drone — kids, adults, people who say they hate drones but then try one. Although many companies make cheaper drones, no one makes them better than DJI. Plus bigger drones like this are much easier to fly, since they can hold themselves steady in the air.
