Earlier this week, we first received word that Best Buy was gearing up for another big NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series restock. The @GPURestock Twitter account was tipped off to Best Buy’s event and, through a series of tweets, gave gamers hope that they might finally be able to get their hands on a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti or even possibly a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Today, Best Buy confirmed that the event would kick off at participating retail store locations starting at 7:30 am local time tomorrow (October 1st). As with previous in-store events, Best Buy employees will hand one ticket per person for those standing in line until all tickets are exhausted. If you have a ticket in hand, you’re... Read more...

That answer is, this week, if the Twitter account @GPURestock is passing along reliable information. This is how shopping for gaming hardware is accomplished these days—whether you're in the market for a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, or a fancy new graphics card, Twitter accounts with a constant pulse on the situation are...

Late last month, during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Apple's popular M1-powered MacBook Air fell to a low $749 versus an MSRP of $999. Today, that deal is back on for a limited time for those that missed out on the first round. As before, the MacBook Air is on sale for $849.99, which represents an already sweet $150 discount. However, signing up for Best Buy's Student Hub (free for anyone to join by clicking here) unearths another $100 discount. At that price, the MacBook Air is a smoking hot deal for anyone looking for a lightweight notebook for productivity tasks. Customers have the choice of purchasing the MacBook Air in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver with free shipping or for in-store/curbside... Read more...
A month ago, Best Buy allowed enthusiastic gamers to purchase current-generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards at local stores... at MSRP. This was a big deal considering that most modern graphics cards are hard to buy at MSRP due to component shortages, which have pushed street prices into the stratosphere. Well, it appears that Best Buy’s July outing was successful, as it is giving shoppers another opportunity to score a GeForce RTX 30 card tomorrow. Like before, this is an in-store-only event that will be available at select Best Buy locations. Here are the Best Buy Stock Numbers & Store List for the Founders Edition 3000 Series In-Store Restock About 17,000 units total... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 has encountered its fair share of troubles since it launched in December 2020. The highly anticipated game faced numerous delays to fix lingering problems, but it still shipped half-baked, which lead to backlash from the gaming community. Sony even took the drastic step of removing the game from the PlayStation Store. However, multiple patches have been released to fix the most heinous bugs in the game, including Patch 1.3, which is coming soon. So for those that have been sitting on the fence when it comes to purchasing the game, now is your chance to get it for a crazy low price. Right now, Best Buy is offering the PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5 and Xbox One/Xbox Series X version... Read more...
We’ve got another round of hot deals for you today, and they cover a rather eclectic range of tech products. You can find discounts on the latest M1 Mac Mini, Google’s venerable Pixel 3 XL, and Western Digital/SanDisk storage products. Apple M1 Mac Mini Up To $150 Off At Amazon The Mac mini was last refreshed in late October, and it received the highly acclaimed M1 (Apple Silicon) SoC at that time. This brain transplant gave the entry-level Mac a significant boost in performance over its Intel-based predecessor. Today, Amazon is discounting the base Mac mini (8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) to $649 instead of the $699 MSRP. However, an additional $49.01 discount at checkout takes it down to just... Read more...
When Apple first introduced its custom Arm-based M1 processor late last year, the MacBook Air was one of the first devices to take the plunge. Emboldened with excellent performance and stellar battery life in a lightweight/fanless chassis, the refreshed MacBook Air remains a hot seller for Apple. With a starting price of $999, the MacBook Air isn't exactly cheap, but it's Apple's most affordable laptop. However, a new deal from Best Buy is slashing that price by a whopping $250. First, you'll want to make sure that you sign up for a free My Best Buy account. Then, today's offer is available by signing in to the Best Buy Student Hub, which is also free for anyone to join. The MacBook Air is currently... Read more...
There are some hot deals brewing for Apple's popular family of tablets. Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy have discounted the iPad Air by $100, and Apple is throwing in an even more compelling offer for students. The 4th generation iPad Air is priced at just $499.99 compared to its $599.99 retail price.

If you've been trying relentlessly to obtain a GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics card over the past nine months at MSRP, we feel your pain. Unfortunately, due to the excellent performance that the cards offer coupled with a component shortage and the cryptocurrency boom, sellouts come swiftly online (and at brick and mortar locations). Tomorrow, however, you will have a chance to score a GeForce RTX 30 card in-person at Best Buy stores across the United States. According to the retailer, starting at 7:30 am local time, employees at select Best Buy locations will hand out tickets for current available stock. If you receive a ticket, you are guaranteed a card to purchase from the store. With your... Read more...
As Amazon’s Prime Day rages on in the background, other companies are wanting to get in on the sales with special days of their own. With this, it appears that Best Buy is having a High-Tech flash sale today with some decent deals across all its technology categories. Take a look at just some of what we found below… TVs and Monitors With any sale, the biggest discounts usually come from TVs and monitors, and this stands true today. At the top of our list as the most expensive but most discounted device is the Sony BRAVIA XR A80J at $2,199.99, which is $600 off regular price. This is a 65” 4K OLED smart TV that can run up to 120Hz natively, is HDR 10 certified, and comes with... Read more...
Another GeForce RTX 30 Series launch from NVIDIA means another exercise in frustration for gamers. We had a chance to review NVIDIA's latest mid-range GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition yesterday and came away generally impressed with its performance. But, unfortunately, things aren't looking good for enthusiasts that want a chance to sample this bit of gaming goodness. We decided to do a quick check at the usual online retail suspects for selling graphics cards, including Best Buy and Newegg. Best Buy only has two GeForce RTX 3070 Ti cards on the books: NVIDIA's Founders Edition and the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Things don't look too out of the ordinary with the Founders Edition,... Read more...
If you're on the lookout for one of the fastest graphics cards on the market, NVIDIA has you covered with the newly announced GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (be sure to check out the HotHardware review). The card offers intoxicating performance that comes within a few percentage points of the flagship GeForce RTX 3090. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti officially goes on sale on June 3rd, and Best Buy is one of the few retailers that will have Founders Edition cards available. The retailer already activated its product page for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition, and it's priced at the expected $1,199.99 -- $300 less than the GeForce RTX 3090. The product listing currently shows "Coming Soon," but we'd imagine... Read more...
The Apple Watch Series 6 launched during the fall of 2020 alongside the iPhone 12 family. It brought the latest advancements in the Apple Watch progression and started at $399 for the 40nm Wi-Fi model with an aluminum casing. In recent days, that price dropped to just $299 at various retailers, which is a stellar deal by itself for a current-generation Apple product. However, Apple and its retail partners are at it again with an even deeper discount on the Apple Watch Series 6. Right now, Amazon and Best Buy are selling the Apple Watch Series 6 (Product) Red 40mm for just $249. That's a savings of $150 off the regular price or a 38 percent discount. Apple Watch Series 6 (Product) RED 40mm w/Sport... Read more...
Earlier this month, NVIDIA confirmed that its new entry-level GeForce RTX 3060 would launch on February 25th. Last night, the company added a bit more clarity to the launch, revealing that the first retail cards would be available starting today at noon EST. The GeForce RTX 3060’s imminent availability is welcome news to budget gamers out there attracted to the $329 retail price that NVIDIA has bestowed upon the GeForce RTX 3060, but scoring one for that price may be nearly impossible. A quick trip over to Best Buy shows that the retailer currently has three GeForce RTX 3060 cards listed as “Coming Soon,” and none of them are anywhere close to $329. The cheapest card available...

Microsoft's current Surface Pro 7 has been around for well over a year at this point, but it is still one of the best Windows 10 convertibles on the market. The 1.7-pound Surface Pro 7 has a 13.2-inch PixelSense Display (2736x1824) and is powered by 10th generation Intel Core processors. Right now, Best Buy has the base Surface Pro 7 with a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD offered in a bundle package with several other popular items. The retailer is throwing in a Black Type Cover, Surface Pen, Surface Mobile Mouse, and a 1-user license for Microsoft 365 Personal for just $756.97. Best Buy says that this is a $407 savings from the regular price if bought separately. Although... Read more...
It's a rough time to be a gaming or PC enthusiast these days. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a crushing demand not only for new gaming consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but also for PC hardware like AMD Ryzen 5000 processors and GeForce RTX/Radeon RX graphics cards. It's bad enough that enthusiasts are having to fight each other (and bots) in queues to purchase newly-launched hardware, but now some shipping couriers are adding another wrinkle to this already stressful situation.  There are ever-increasing reports of gamers having their successfully-purchased hardware snatched away from them before it even gets to their doorstep. A recent reddit... Read more...
A new generation of high-powered gaming laptops is on the horizon, so on the surface, it may not seem like the best time to buy. And that is true if paying full price. However, retailers have started to clear out inventory to make room for the new stuff, paving the way for some fantastic deals on current generation hardware. Like a hefty $400 discount on Dell's G7 with a 300Hz display (1080p). You can find Dell's G7 marked down to $1,299.99 at Best Buy right now (down from $1,699.99). That is an enticing price for the hardware and form factor—this one takes aim at people like myself who still appreciate and gravitate towards a larger 17.3-inch display. The fast refresh rate stands out and... Read more...
The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 deals are starting to pile up, now that the popular convertible has been on the market for over a year at this point. The arrival of the Surface Pro 7+ could also be part of the reason for the sweet deals, but whatever the cause, we're not going to complain at discounts that are approaching 40 percent off for certain configurations. Starting off at the entry-level position, we have the Surface Pro 7 with a 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. To further sweeten the deal, Best Buy is throwing in a Black Type Cover, which means that you'll have everything you need to use the convertible either as a tablet, or... Read more...
For those that are always on the lookout for the hottest deals on tech gear, mega retailer Best Buy's big 4-day sale is ending today. The company has been piling on the discounts on games, laptops, 4K TVs, and cellphones (among other things). We've decided to give a few examples of the best deals that are available, so buckle up! Given that Super Bowl LV is just a few weeks away, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Best Buy is discounting large screen TVs. In this case, the HiSense 75H6510G 75-inch Android TV is available for just $749. This is a $250 discount from its normal $999 price tag, and it of course comes with free shipping. The TV supports Bluetooth for wireless connecting a soundbar,... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 launched in early December to much fanfare, but that excitement and hype around the game was short-lived after scores of bugs and performance issues cropped up with the game... primarily with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. It’s been a wild month for developer CD Projekt Red as it deals with the fallout from the launch (including a couple of class-action lawsuits). Given the negativity that has been surrounding the game over the past month, it should come as no surprise that prices have been steadily dropping. Prices have fallen to the point where Cyberpunk 2077 can be had for just $34.99 from both Amazon and Best Buy. We're normally not used to... Read more...
Earlier this morning, we brought you some deals on excellent gaming laptops that complete with discrete graphics and chest-thumping 6- and 8-core processors. The cheapest entry on that last came in $849, but our next list is aimed at laptops priced at $750 or less. First up on our list is the Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1, which Best Buy is currently selling in both 15.6-inch and 13.3-inch configurations. The 13.3-inch model is cheaper at $649.99 and features an 11th generation (Tiger Lake) Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and a display resolution of 1920x1080. Graphics duties are of course handled by the integrated 12th generation Iris Xe graphics controller.... Read more...
