Best Buy Cyber Monday deals: live right now
Cyber Monday is now behind us, but we still have next year's shopping event to look forward to. In this article, we will explore what happened during the Cyber Monday shopping event at Best Buy and what deals on our favorite tech gadgets were available, in order to paint the picture of what we could expect next year. 

This year, Best Buy had pre-Black Friday deals on its website for a week before the official date of the shopping event, and the majority of those deals were available on Cyber Monday as well.

Cyber Monday 2021 deals on phones


Best Buy Cyber Monday deals were pretty similar to the ones that were available on Friday with just a few exceptions. Let's look at what we had during the shopping event.

In terms of iPhones, the iPhone 13 series was discounted on the three major carriers with generous trade-in deals. First off, AT&T had a $100 discount instantly with qualified new line activation and no requirement for trade-in. Additionally you could save up to $1,000 on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max or save up to $800 on iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 mini with trade-in through AT&T.

Verizon, on the other hand, offered $1,000 off on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, or up to $800 off on the iPhone 13, $700 on the iPhone 13 mini with trade-in. On T-Mo, the Pro-branded models were available with u p to $900 discount with trade-in, while the iPhone 13 and the mini -- up to $725 with trade.

What's more, T-Mobile also had the slightly older iPhone 12 with up to $540 off with trade-in.

But Best Buy's Cyber Monday deals weren't only on iPhones, and the generosity stretched to Samsung Galaxy phones as well. Verizon was the most generous carrier on premium Samsung Galaxy phones deals as it offered a $1000 off with a qualified trade-in. Unlocked Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 were also available with good Cyber Monday discounts. T-Mo gave up to $725 off with trade-in on the Galaxy S21 series, or $200 off without trade-in.

Big discounts were present for the foldable Galaxy Z series as well. Without trade-in, on the Galaxy Z series, Verizon had up to $400 discount, T-Mo up to $400 off as well, and AT&T, up to $300 off, while with trade-in, on Verizon you could save up to $1400, on AT&T up to $1300, and on T-Mobile up to $1050. Of course keep in mind that carrier-tied offers were tied to an eligible plan.

Motorola and OnePlus phones were also discounted on Best Buy for Cyber Monday. The OnePlus 9 Pro's Black Friday discount of $270 off was back, but on Cyber Monday, it was around $170 off.

Cyber Monday 2021 deals on tablets and iPad


Best Buy had some Cyber Monday deals on some older iPad models. From the newer iPad models, the iPad mini 6 for Verizon was available with a Cyber Monday deal. Select Microsoft Surface models were also discounted, as well as several models from Lenovo's lineup of budget-friendly tablets.

Cyber Monday 2021 deals on smartwatches


In terms of smartwatches, Best Buy had a lot of generous Cyber Monday discounts.  Entry-level Apple Watch Series 3 was discounted as well (again with the offer of 6 months of free Apple Fitness+ subscription), while the new and premium Apple Watch Series 7 had a nice trade-in offer: you could get up to $200 off with trade-in.

Models from the Galaxy Watch series, Fitbit, Garmin, and Fossil had Cyber Monday discounts, quite similar to those on Black Friday (and some of these deals were identical to the ones on Friday).

Cyber Monday 2021 deals on headphones and earbuds


Cyber Monday presented buyers with great opportunities to buy a new pair of earbuds or headphones for cheap at Best Buy. The deals were exactly the same as the ones the retailer had for Black Friday.

Here's what we mean: the Apple AirPods Max were $70 off, while the AirPods Pro were $30 off. Similar discount was available on the regular AirPods. A $40-$50 discount was present for some Galaxy Buds models. More generous Black Friday offers were available for Beats By Dre headphones and earbuds. For example, the Beats by Dr. Dre - Beats Studio 3 were available with a $150 discount. A $100 discount was available on the Sony WH-1000XM4 over-the-ear headphones. Jabra, Sennheiser, and Bose headphones were also discounted.
