Best Buy, along with a host of other retailers, is getting in on the action to take a bite out of Amazon Prime Day. The retailer’s ongoing “Black Friday in July” promotion is bringing sweeping discounts on a wide array of awesome tech, including laptops, gaming keyboards, and noise-canceling headphones. The event runs from now through Wednesday, July 13th — the same Prime Day ends — so it’s worth checking back here if Amazon doesn’t have what you’re looking for. It’s also worth noting that Best Buy has a generous price-matching policy, so if you prefer to buy from a brick-and-mortar retailer but see a better price elsewhere, it’s worth looking into.

We’ll continue to update this page with new deals as they become available, in addition to letting you know when stock for a particular product dries up.

The best laptop deals at Best Buy

The HP Envy x360 15 is a convertible laptop that typically goes for $799.99 but is on sale at Best Buy for $499.99. This 2-in-1 may be getting a little long in the tooth, but, at this price, it is an easy recommendation for a daily driver. The Envy x360 is an amazing application of AMD hardware in HP’s compact and sturdy 2-in-1 form factor. The 15-inch, 1080p touchscreen display is backed up by an AMD Ryzen 5 5700U CPU and 8GB of RAM.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G15, one of our top picks for the best gaming laptop you can buy, is currently discounted to $1,479.99, down from its usual price of $1,849.99. This AMD-equipped laptop is lightweight, features excellent battery life, and still manages to pack in a powerful RTX 3070 GPU. Read our review.

Headset deals

Mice deals

  • For players who aren’t satisfied with just two buttons, there’s the Steelseries Aerox 9 Wireless, which is currently discounted to $90, the lowest price we’ve seen for what is typically a $149.99 wireless mouse. The Aerox 9 sports an 18K DPI sensor and a whopping 12 macro buttons on its side.
  • The Steelseries Aerox 5 features an ultralight design and a number of extra side buttons in addition to an 18K DPI sensor. Normally $139.99, the Aerox 5 is currently discounted to $85, the lowest price ever for this powerful gaming mouse.
  • The G703, Logitech’s ergonomic wireless gaming mouse, is currently on sale for $69.99 ($20 off), matching the mouse’s lowest price to date. The G703 has 2.4Ghz and Bluetooth connectivity, along with a maximum DPI of 25K.
  • Logitech’s Pro X Superlight gaming mouse is usually priced at $159.99, but you can currently get this wireless mouse for $104.49 at Best Buy. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this peripheral that weighs in at a paltry 63 grams. The Pro X is equipped with a 25K DPI sensor and is even compatible with Logitech’s Powerplay system that allows for wireless charging.
  • You can also find Logitech’s battery-operated G604 Lightspeed wireless gaming mouse discounted to $44.99. The G604 is typically priced at $99.99, making this the best price we’ve seen at Best Buy so far. Thanks to its lack of RGB lighting, the G604 can reportedly last for up to 240 hours on a single AA battery, even with its 25K DPI sensor.

Phone deals

  • Google’s latest phone, the Pixel 6, just got its first price break at Best Buy. The Pixel 6 cost $599 at launch, but you can currently get the 128GB unlocked configuration of this pastel-tinted smartphone for $499 alongside three-months free of YouTube Premium. You can also find the 256GB model discounted to $599. Knocking $100 off either version of this phone is only adding to a device that's already a great value thanks to its excellent performance and battery life. Read our review.

Smartwatch and wearable deals

  • The 41mm and 45mm versions of the Apple Watch Series 7 with LTE are on sale right now for $429 (normally $499) and $459 (normally $529), respectively. The current discounts match the lowest prices we’ve seen for either size of Apple’s flagship wearable. Read our review.
The Apple Watch Series 7 in green.

Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm, LTE)

  • $429
  • $499
  • 15% off

The latest Apple Watch comes in a number of styles with either GPS or LTE. Unlike its predecessor, it has a bigger screen, multiple timers, and faster charging. Besides a few iterative changes, however, it’s not drastically different from the Series 6.

  • You can also pick up the GPS-only version of the 41mm and 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 for $329 (normally $399) and $359 (normally $429), respectively, which matches the lowest price we’ve seen for either configuration of the Apple Watch Series 7.
  • Anyone with a Samsung phone will want to check out these discounts on the 40mm and 44mm configurations of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, which are available for $199.99 (normally $249.99) and $229.99 (normally $279.99), respectively. While it plays best with Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Watch 4 is an intelligent smartwatch choice for any Android device. Read our review.

Tablet deals

Headphone and earbud deals

  • The aesthetics of the Apple AirPods Max may not appeal to everyone, but they’re still one of our favorite pairs of noise-canceling headphones, especially for anyone in the Apple ecosystem. Normally $549, Apple’s luxe headphones are on sale at Best Buy right now for $449.99. The AirPods Max offer balanced sound quality and immersive spatial audio support, in addition to effective noise cancellation. While the carrying case remains a travesty to functional design and the lack of a 3.5mm audio jack forces you to purchase a separate cable, these drawbacks aren’t enough to detract from these otherwise excellent headphones. Read our review.
  • You can currently pick up Sony’s last-gen WH-1000XM4 in select colors for $228, the best price we’ve seen for what is normally a $349.99 pair of headphones. They may no longer be the reigning champ of noise-canceling headphones — that accolade goes to their successor, the WH-1000XM5 — but the WH-1000XM4 still offer amazing voice clarity, great sound, and multipoint Bluetooth support. Read our review.

TV deals

  • The 43-inch TCL 4-series TV, normally $399.99, is on sale for just $249.99 right now. While its refresh rate is restricted to 60Hz, the 4-series manages to provide a surprising amount of features for a relatively low price.
  • The $829.99 LG UP7070 is also discounted to $649.99, one of the best prices we’ve seen for the 4K LED. While it may lack built-in voice assistant support, it is compatible with Apple’s Airplay 2, allowing you to easily sync playback with other iOS devices.
  • The LG’s 65-inch C1, one of our favorite TVs for gaming, is on sale for $1,699.99 instead of $1,799.99, which is one of its lowest prices to date. The brilliant OLED sports a 120Hz refresh rate and is AMD FreeSync compatible — a pair of features that are difficult to find in a display this big.

Monitor deals

And a whole bunch of other stuff

  • If you need to expand the storage of your PC or PlayStation 5 you can currently get the 2TB Samsung 980 Pro SSD with a built-in heatsink for $209.99 instead of $399.99. This is the best discount we’ve ever seen for the 2TB configuration, and is a solid investment if you’ve been struggling with space on your desktop or PlayStation 5.
  • Normally $99.99, the Google Nest Audio is on sale for $59.99 in the black, white, and pink colorways. The Google Assistant-equipped smart speaker offers vastly improved sound over the Google Nest Mini, and can be paired with another Nest speaker for stereo sound. Read our review.
  • The Razer Iskur X gaming chair normally goes for $399.99 but is discounted to $204.99 right now at Best Buy. This is the lowest price we’ve seen to date for the Iskur X and is worth looking into for anyone who is in the market for a budget-friendly gaming chair.
  • Normally $149.99, Best Buy has discounted the Satechi USB-C Monitor Stand Hub to just $99.99. This stand is large enough to handle even the largest of monitors and, as the name implies, features an integrated USB-C hub that provides additional connectivity for Thunderbolt-compatible laptops.
  • The Ember Mug 2 is a clever little device that’s capable of keeping your beverage at an ideal temperature. Normally the 14-ounce version of the Ember Mug would cost $149.99, but it’s currently on sale at Best Buy for $119.99.
  • The iRobot Roomba s9 Plus, the flagship model of the Roomba fleet, is currently on sale with the Braava Jet m6 robot mop for $1,249.99. The discounted bundle typically costs $1,449.99, making this a great way to save on a pair of helpful robotic assistants.
  • Google’s latest Nest Learning Thermostat normally retails for $249.99 but is now matching its regularly discounted price of $199.99 at Best Buy. The Nest Learning Thermostat learns your preferences over time, supports voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant, and comes in a variety of colors that allow it to seamlessly match your home decor.

While the price tag certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, any discount on the Sony Alpha A7 III is worth looking into. Normally, this bundle that pairs the Alpha A7 with a 28-70mm lens costs $2,199.99, but it’s currently on sale for $1,999.99 at Best Buy. The A7 III has been supplanted by the A7 IV that features a higher-resolution touchscreen display, but this older model still has the majority of the selling points, but at a reduced price.

The Sony Alpha A7 III is an excellent choice for still photography but is equally capable of capturing high-speed action shots thanks to its 10fps continuous shooting. While the Alpha A7 III does support internal storage with SD cards, it can also stream its images wirelessly to a compatible smartphone, PC, or TV, thanks to its NFC connectivity. It also supports 4K HDR video when tethered to a separate capture device either via HDMI or USB-C.
