Amazon Prime Day may be over but the Best Buy Black Friday in July sale is still in full swing. If you missed the aforementioned sales event at Amazon, then this rival sale at Best Buy is a fantastic consolation prize and we've picked out a dew of our favorite deals that are still available just below.
While some of the best deals have already been snapped up, the Black Friday in July sale lasts all the way through to July 17th, so there's still a few days to grab deep discounts on laptops, TVs, home appliances and much more.
Launched in parallel to this year's Amazon Prime Day, the Best Buy Black Friday sale actually offered some deals that were actually better than those over at Amazon.
For instance, Best Buy has the Bella Pro Series 8-qt. Digital Air Fryer is just $49.99, which is $100 off and by far the best deal we're seeing for any 8-quart air fryer. There are also some solid offers on older Apple tech at Best Buy, namely an iPad Pro 12.9-inch 256GB Wi-Fi (2020) for $934.99 and $200 off a 13-inch 2020 MacBook Pro M1.
The Best Buy Black Friday in July sale features several offers that match or beat Amazon Prime Day specials. Here are 10+ deals worth checking out, spanning laptops, TVs, small appliances, headphones and more...
