Best Buy has shared its Black Friday ad, and one of the big surprises was that some of the best deals are already happening. If you are a My Best Buy member (Best Buys free membership service), you can save a lot of money today on the new seventh-generation iPad. You can also save on different sizes and storage configurations of iPad Pro 2018.
But you don't have to be a My Best Buy member to take advantage of some big sales that we didn't think we would see until later this month, like the steeply discounted Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with one type of Coverage included at no extra cost. This calls for good if you do not want to wait, but maybe it carries even better for those who want to wait since there may be even better deals in a few weeks.
Most of these offers end at 1
Today (November 7), only the seventh generation iPad (32 GB, pictured above) starts at $ 249.99 for My Best Buy members. (Just remember to log in; you'll see that the price drop goes into effect at checkout.) This is currently the best price out there for this model. (Target will offer the same deal on Black Friday.) For more storage, the 128 GB model is currently $ 329.99 (the regular price of the $ 32 model), making it a $ 100 discount. Whichever one you want, both offer upgrades, making them better choices over the previous generation iPads, such as a Smart Connector port, a larger screen and an extra gigabyte of RAM, even though the processor is the same.
The Surface Pro 7 (Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, with black type cover) is $ 599. This silvery model usually costs $ 749 for the tablet alone, plus an additional $ 129 for the Type Cover. According to Tom Warren's review, you can expect some minor but welcome improvements here, such as a USB-C port for charging and a hump up to Intel's 10th Gen processors everywhere (included in this discounted model).
Another exclusive deal for My Best Buy members includes a significant discount on the iPad Pro. The 11-inch iPad Pro with 64GB of storage is $ 649.99 ($ 150 off), which matches the best price ever. The 12.9-inch 64GB storage model is $ 849.99, including a $ 150 discount. In fact, all storage or size configurations of the iPad Pro on Best Buy match the best deals we've seen, so take a look.
Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro is $ 200 off the regular price, making the baseline configuration (with the touchpad, a quad-core, eighth Gen Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM and 128 GB of storage) $ 1,099. It's the best price we've seen, and you can save $ 200 on the upgraded storage model. The 256 GB model is $ 1,299 instead of $ 1,499.
Ring's Video Doorbell Pro (which requires doorbell wiring) and Chime Pro come together for $ 179.99, and Best Buy includes an Amazon Echo Show 5 smart screen for free. This doorbell usually sells for more than $ 200 for itself, so this is a big discount if you hoped to find each of these items for sale during the holiday season.
Apple's HomePod smart speaker is $ 199.99, down from the typical $ 249.99 price tag. This corresponds to the lowest price we've seen, so it may dip even lower for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. But if you've been waiting for it to come back at this price, Best Buy has both the black and white color options available now.
Apple Watch Series 4 is cheaper than ever. The 40mm version costs $ 299 (a $ 30 discount that seems to be exclusive to Best Buy, at least for now). For the larger size of 44 mm you pay $ 329, down from $ 379. There is a $ 50 discount, but you can find this price on Amazon.
Each storage and color configuration on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Android tablet is discounted by $ 100, and you get a $ 50 free gift card with the purchase. Samsung makes this tablet in gray, blue or pink, and you can get it with either 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. Unlike Surface Pro 7 and iPad Pro, this one includes a stylus in the box. According to Dan Seifert's review, this model has a beautiful display and performs admirably. However, the wide aspect ratio may be a bit uncomfortable for practical work.
Sony WH-1000X M3 Touchable, Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones are $ 279.99 (usually $ 349.99). These are among the best wireless headphones you can buy, and they stand out from the competition with their masterful balance of comfort, sound quality and excellent noise cancellation. This price corresponds to the lowest we have seen, and it may fall more as we get closer to Black Friday, but you will get a lot of money no matter if you wait. Or not.
Beats Studio 3 over-ear, noise-canceling wireless headphones are $ 199.99 (usually $ 349.99). This is the best price we have seen and the lowest available for a new set of these boxes. Like Sony's above, these have active noise cancellation, but they have Apple's wireless W1 chip for quick, easy connection to other Apple devices, such as your iPhone, iPad or macOS computer. However, they charge via Micro USB, which is perhaps their most glaring error compared to other flagship headphones.
HP's pre-built Omen Obelisk desktop PC is $ 899.99, down from $ 1,249. Inside the case you will find Intel's i7-9700 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, a 1 TB hard drive and a 256 GB SSD. The custom micro-ATX case supports other motherboards if you decide to upgrade down the line, and of course you can replace the parts as you like. But as it stands, this is a great value for all those parts thrown into a well-built case.
Best Buy deals on gaming laptops are appealing across the board, but the 15.6-inch MSI GS65 laptop stands out from the rest. It's $ 1,399.99 (down from $ 1,899) and features a 240Hz 1080p display, Intel's i7-9750H processor, 32GB RAM, Nvidia's RTX 2060 GPU, 512GB PCIe storage, and a Thunderbolt port , among other features. Simply put, this is a fantastic deal that is worth pursuing if you are looking for a laptop that can surpass anything in this price range.
Dell's 17.3-inch G7 gaming laptop is $ 1,099.99 (usually $ 1,499), and it shares a lot in common with the MSI machine above. It has the same processor, graphics card, storage configuration and Thunderbolt port. However, it is much heavier, it has half the amount of RAM, and the screen is locked at 60Hz. If these features don't mean much to you, you can save $ 300 by purchasing this model.
Logitech's classic wired G502 Hero mouse is $ 34.99 (usually around $ 50 at various retailers). A more expensive wireless version exists, but if you want a multi-button ergonomic mouse as well as included weights for a custom feel, this is a reliable option.
