Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Because if not, you’re already way behind schedule, and no one on your list has any shot of getting what they want. OK, OK, so the situation isn’t anywhere near so dire, but retail heavyweights aren’t about to let you off so easy. You may still have a few weeks to go before Black Friday (and Cyber Monday, and Just Buy Some More Stuff Please Tuesday), but holiday sales creep means that we’ll likely be seeing all sorts of deals landing between now and then. This weekend, Best Buy taps in to everything we love and hate about holiday sales with some limited-time “Black Friday-like deals.”
Well, you may not be camping out overnight for these deals, but we’re still looking at some very real constraints: not only are these deals limited to 400 participating Best Buy stores (which ones? Hit up the source link to check if yours is covered), but they’re also only available this Saturday, and only then for a narrow four-hour window (1pm to 5pm).
As for the deals themselves, shoppers can look forward to saving $75 on a 64GB iPad Air 2, $200 on a Surface Pro 3, or $70 on a combo Apple TV and iPhone 6 package. There are also sales on some hot accessories, like Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0 Bluetooth speakers, Fitbit activity trackers, and even the chance to pick up a free Samsung Gear Fit. OK, with the requirement of spending $1000 on Samsung appliances, that last one isn’t such a great deal, but maybe you were planning on picking up a washer and dryer anyway!
Make no mistake: this is just the tip of the iceberg. Check back with us throughout the month for news of all the big mobile tech deals on the way.
