Prime Day phone deals at Best Buy: recap
Looking to get a new smartphone? Good news for shoppers - Best Buy didn't let Amazon steal its thunder and last time it discounted the latest iPhone 13 series. We also saw some unexpectedly huge discounts on the hottest Android phones like the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Pixel 6, and the futuristic foldables Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
Every iPhone 13 series model - the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro, the Pro Max and the iPhone 13 mini was a clean $100 off at Best Buy during last Prime Day! The only requirement was to buy the phone with a plan from Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile. Good stuff!
Android flagship fans had lots of options too. On last Prime Day Best Buy dropped the price of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra with a huge $350 discount. The conditions were, again, buying it with a carrier plan, although even if you didn't and bought it unlocked, you still had a clean $300 discount waiting for you.
This highly popular and affordable phone from Samsung, the Galaxy A52, got even more appealing after a $125 Prime Day discount, which brought its price down from $450 to $325.
The foldable marvel that is the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G could've been yours for as little as $399 with activation. We can expect similar deals on foldables once Prime Day 2023 rolls around!
Want Samsung's greatest productivity smartphone - the foldable, tablet-like Galaxy Z Fold 3? On Prime Day, Best Buy slashed its price with a hefty $699 discount!
The Google Pixel 6 was up to $200 off at Best Buy during last Prime Day. The only condition was an activation!
Prime Day tablet deals at Best Buy: recap
Best Buy slashed prices on a few iPad models, but you had even more choices in terms of deals if you were looking for Samsung-made tablets.
During Prime Day Best Buy lowered the price of the fantastic iPad Air 4 to $450 after it slapped a $150 discount on it.
The huge Samsung flagship tablet, Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, was $150 off for the 256GB storage model, and $120 off for the base 128GB model. Samsung's absolute flagship tablet - the huge 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (256GB) could have been yours for a lot less, and will likely see more discounts next year! Like other Samsung tablets, it comes with an S Pen stylus too!
A variety of Samsung mid-range and budget tablets were also nicely discounted, so stay tuned for next year's Prime Day if you're looking to buy an Android tablet for less!
Prime Day smartwatch deals at Best Buy: recap
Best Buy upped the stakes with some of the best deals we had ever seen on the latest Apple Watch Series 7! But other smart timepieces by companies like Samsung, Garmin and FitBit also saw some sweet price cuts on last Prime Day, and will on the next one.
Both sizes of the Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm and 45mm) saw a nice, clean $70 discount at Best Buy during Prime Day. Valid for all color options too! The slightly older Apple Watch Nike Series 5 got slapped with a bigger $120 discount.
The Apple Watch SE got a $30 discount also, plus a number of Garmin and Firbit smartwatches, which were over $100 off.
Samsung smartwatch fans had options too - both the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 classic got discounted with $50 and $40 off respectively. For next year it's reasonable to expect larger discounts for those two.
Prime Day headphones and earbuds deals at Best Buy: recap
The over-ear Apple AirPods Max were $50 at Best Buy during the last Prime Day shopping event. The in-ear Apple AirPods Pro were discounted with $40 too.
Same went for several Beats headphones, the Sony LinkBuds S ($42 off) and the Sony WH-XB910N ($170 off)!
Prime Day laptop deals at Best Buy: recap
Both work laptops and gaming laptops saw discounts on last Prime Day. For example, the popular Acer Nitro 5 was $120 off (15.6" FHD display, Intel Core i5-12500H chip, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti),
Lenovo Yoga and Samsung Galaxy Book2 2-in-1 laptops (or shall we call them Windows tablets?) were discounted also. The latter in particular had a generous $200 price cut.
Bluetooth speakers Prime Day sales at Best Buy: recap
The small and portable, waterproof JBL Clip, which is already quite affordable at $80 saw a clean $30 discount. The boombox-looking JBL Xtreme 3 was also down to $299.99 from $379.99.
Bose, Sony and Philips Bluetooth speakers, many of them, were also discounted with usually around $50.
Smart TV deals at Best Buy on Prime Day: recap
TVs are the bread-and-butter of every shopping event, and buying one around Prime Day in particular means that you'll likely be saving hundreds of dollars. And that was exactly the case last time, and most likely will be during Prime Day 2023.
We saw a number of huge Samsung TVs with massive $500 and $600 discounts! Sony TVs too, the 55-inch Sony XR A80J in particular was $700 off! So you can pick pretty much any TV and expect a grand discount from Best Buy during the next Prime Day event.
Camera deals at Best Buy on Prime Day: recap
And lastly, we had Prime Day camera deals from Best Buy, for the serious photographers out there, or those who simply find their phone camera not good enough.
The GoPro HERO8 Black Bundle was $120 off, the Sony Alpha 7R III camera was a clean $600 off, and the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 Mark III Black Camera Body with Olympus M.Zuiko PRO Lens was $350 off. There was more too, so if you're looking to step up your camera game and save some cash, stay tuned!
