Best Buy is currently offering discounts on products from Apple, Samsung, and more. The retailer is holding a three-day sale that starts today and ends on March 22nd at 9:59PM PT / 12:59AM ET. If you’re looking to upgrade your home office or just looking for more gadgets to occupy your quarantined days, check out some of these discounts.

Although the company’s stores remain open at this time, we strongly encourage you to only order online from Best Buy if you’re interested in buying something. Stay home. Now, on to the deals.

Apple’s 13.3-inch MacBook Air is down to $799, which is $200 off its original price of $999. The discounted model has an Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage. (Note that this is an older MacBook Air model from mid-2017, not the latest model with a vastly improved keyboard.)

There are a number of discounts on Samsung’s Galaxy S20 5G series, depending on the carrier and installment plan you select. You’ll get a $200 discount if you purchase the models through Verizon or AT&T’s 30-month installment plan. You can also save up to $1,000 if you purchase through Sprint monthly installments on a new line, and up to $200 if you purchase the phone unlocked and activate immediately. The Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra are excellent phones with standout battery lives and optional 120Hz screens.

Apple’s Beats by Dr. Dre Studio3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are down to $199, $150 off their original price. Note that only the gray, “desert sand,” and “crystal blue” models are available at this price; the other colors are still $349. The headphones feature a collapsible design, so they’re easy to tuck into a bag or purse. They also come with four free months of Apple Music if you’re a first-time subscriber.

Correction 3/20/20 3:01 PM EST: This story has been updated to reflect that the discounted iPad Mini models have 64GB of and 256GB of storage, respectively. A previous version of the article stated that they had 64GB and 256GB of RAM. We regret the error.
