Need a last minute gift? Best Buy’s New Sale Has You Covered Now
With Christmas less than a week away at this point, your shipping options have gotten pretty slim. Whether you’ve just realized you forgot to buy for someone on your list or just enjoyed the rush of last-minute shopping, this new Best Buy sale has you covered. The big box retailer has run a number of promotions this month to help you get some last minute deals, and there’s a good chance it will be the last before time runs out so you can collect freebies. .
From headphones to air fryers, small beverage coolers to smart home accessories, this sale at Best Buy has something for everyone. It should be noted that not all items will be available in all locations, so you will need to check the local inventory on the product pages you are interested in to see if you can select in-store or curbside pickup. Some of the discounts here are the same we’ve seen since early November and some are recent price drops just for that.

With the arrival of the new Beats Fit Pro headphones, I assumed we would see nice discounts on the earlier, less feature-rich Beats Studio Buds, which cost $ 150, just $ 50 less than the new Beats Fit Pro. at $ 200. I predicted we might see their price drop to $ 100 and sure enough that is what their price is now (and a new low).
The Beats Studio Buds are a lot like the Rodless AirPod rumors that people were talking about but never materialized – as AirPods anyway. Aimed at iOS and Android users, they lack a few key features on the Apple side (there’s no H1 or W1 chip), but they’re small, lightweight headphones that are comfortable to wear and sound good. They fit nicely on most ears, including mine – I run with them no problem – but others may find a better fit with the Beats Fit Pro and their built-in wing tips.

If you don’t have an air fryer yet, Black Friday is a great time to buy one. This Chefman 8 Quart Air Fryer has a large capacity, multiple cooking presets and more. It’s easy to clean and cooks great food, so what are you waiting for?
