Best Buy October Prime Day Phone Deals
This October, Best Buy allowed shoppers to get the latest Galaxy S23 Ultra at up to $500 off with a suitable trade-in. As if the discount wasn't enough, the merchant also threw in a $200 eGift card to sweeten the pot.
Of course, it wasn't just the top-end flagship phone that got its price tag heavily reduced during this October's shopping event. The middle child of the S23 Family also went on sale at Best Buy. This smartphone was retailing at the same maximum $500 trade-in discount, plus a $150 gift card. Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5 was retailing at $300 off without any trade-ins.
Best Buy Prime Day in October Tablet Deals
Things were equally exciting for people who wanted a new Galaxy tablet at a bargain price this October. Best Buy offered multiple Samsung slates at deeply reduced prices. From Galaxy Tab S9 family members to more affordable tablets from the Galaxy Tab A series, there was something for every budget.
This October, the merchant slashed $120 off the 512GB Galaxy Tab S9+ price tag, landing it at a more bearable price. What's more, we saw the vanilla Tab S9 sporting the same price cut. Those who weren't looking for the latest and greatest of Samsung's tablet innovations could opt for a model from last year's series.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra also got its price tag reduced heavily. During the shopping event, Best Buy allowed shoppers to save a whopping $300 on this fantastic slate. As for models from the Galaxy A Series, we saw the Tab A7 Lite and the Tab A8 at $30-$60 off.
Best Buy Prime Day in October Smartwatch and Headphones Deals
The October shopping spree brought some amazing deals on smartwatches and headphones by Samsung, too. We saw all the coolest wearables and audio accessories at discounted prices.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic could be yours at a $30 cheaper price, while older models boasted even bigger discounts. For instance, prices for the old but gold Galaxy Watch 4 Classic went down by $100, while the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro was available at $80 off. That's decidedly a good deal, given that the wearable delivers stellar battery life.
What types of tech products can I expect to find on sale during Best Buy's Prime Day sales?
The short answer is that you can expect discounts across any and every tech category you can think of. As you can see in this article, there are deals on smartphones, tablets, wearables and headphones. Additionally, there are discounts on laptops, speakers and virtually every piece of hardware under the sun. Typically, there are no devices spared in the shopping fiasco.
Which smartphone brands are expected to get discounts on Best Buy Prime Day?
Based on past Prime Day events, we can comfortably testify to the fact that there are price cuts on devices from almost every manufacturer, including high-profile ones like Google, Samsung, Motorola, and OnePlus, every year. It should be noted that the prices of Apple’s iPhones remain relatively impervious to shopping events. Discounts on the iPhone 15 lineup are not entirely impossible, but they will be comparatively much more modest (if they take place at all).
