Best Buy Black Friday in July
The Best Buy Black Friday in July sale is now live, and it’s a big one. You’ll need to be a My Best Buy member to get early access, but you can sign-up for free right here. It is filled with notable Apple deals including up to $250 off select iPad Pro models, up to $600 off MacBook Pro, iTunes gift card deals, and much more. The sale runs from now through July 27th.
Deep deals on Hue, Nanoleaf, LIFX, more
As part of its Black Friday in July Sale, Best Buy is also offering numerous discounts on smart home products. Our top pick is the Philips Hue 3-Bulb Multicolor HomeKit-enabled Starter Kit with Lightswitch for $129.99 shipped available at both Best Buy’s eBay storefront and direct. This is down from its $180 list price and matches our last mention. If you’ve yet to enter the Philips Hue ecosystem, this is the perfect starter kit. You’ll get the HomeKit-enabled Hub, three multicolor bulbs, and a lightswitch in this bundle. Plus loads more deals on Nanoleaf, Wemo, and TP-Link.
The latest generation Apple Pencil drops to $90
Best Buy is offering the Geek Squad Certified Refurbished Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) for $89.99 shipped. Down from its $129 regular price, it goes for $125 at Amazon in new condition and is now among the best prices we’ve tracked all-time. It works great with Apple’s latest 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros. It charges and pairs wirelessly, which is a huge upgrade from the Lightning connector the previous generation used.
Bose SoundTouch Series currently 20% off at Amazon
Amazon is offering the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Speaker for $149.99 shipped. That’s $49 off the going rate found at retailers like Walmart and is within $1 of the lowest Amazon offer we have tracked. This Alexa-equipped speaker is Wi-Fi connected, just like Sonos. You can stream services like Amazon Music and Spotify directly, and its entire lineup can be linked together for multi-room audio. A recently-released Bose Skill for Alexa allows users to control these speakers with voice from any of Amazon’s Echo products.
Black Friday in July has HD, 4K, and 8K smart TV deals from $90
As part of its Black Friday in July sale, Best Buy is offering a number of HD, 4K, and 8K smart TVs on sale. Our favorite is the Toshiba 55-inch 4K Dolby Vision Fire TV Edition on sale for $369.99 shipped. You’ll need to become a My Best Buy member if you’re not one already, but don’t worry, it’s free to join. Normally $450, the only time we’ve seen it lower was on Prime Day 2018, when it dropped to $360 before quickly selling out. In just a few short days, I’ll be moving into a new apartment. This is the TV I personally chose to hang on my wall, thanks to the built-in Fire TV OS, Dolby Vision, and budget-friendly price point.
