No one really does big holiday weekend sales the way Best Buy does. You can always count on a huge sale lasting at least three days and covering just about everything with a price the store can cut. This Best Buy 4th of July sale is no different, and you can start saving now.
In addition to hundreds of discounts, Best Buy also has a myriad of ways to get your electronics delivered to you. You can go the free shipping route for sure, but if you want your stuff even faster you can order online and select in-store pickup. You could be playing your new video game or setting up your new electronics in just a couple hours that way, and you don't have to spend more than a couple of minutes at the store. Remember, as well, that signing up for the My Best Buy program (opens in new tab) is free and can often lead to additional discounts during sales like this.
When is the 4th of July sale?
Not to state the obvious, but the sale will at least, in part, cover July 4. The sale starts today, July 1, and covers the entire weekend, all the way through July 4 on Monday. Best Buy loves to do 3-day sales for the small holidays, but we're getting a 4-day sale this weekend because it's a big time for deals.
Technically, the sale actually started a little earlier with Best Buy's Appliances sale. You can find major home appliances on sale, too, if you're interested in something Best Buy sells beyond electronics.
Either way, if you're looking to save during this year's deal extravaganza, start early this weekend. Best Buy will still update its Deal of the Day page and have unique deals that have the potential to sell out throughout the weekend.
Where are the deals?
You can certainly find Best Buy's deals in store, and if they have it online and not in store you can bet they'll match it for you if you happen to be at a brick and mortar location. However, these big sales are mostly conducted online and that's what you should expect this year. Online sales are the easiest way for Best Buy to knock the price off so many items. You can also keep an eye on Best Buy's eBay storefront (opens in new tab) because oftentimes a lot of the deals can be found there as well, which comes in handy if they happen to sell out elsewhere.
What deals should we expect to see?
So what deals are we looking at during the Best Buy 4th of July sale? Pretty much everything. You'll be able to find laptops, 4K TVs, gaming consoles like the new-generation Xbox Series S and X or the PlayStation 5, media streaming devices from Roku, smart home tech like smart thermostats, and more. Find laptops ranging in price from just a couple hundred bucks to a couple thousand. Find all sorts of video games for every platform, including the Xbox Series X or even the Nintendo Switch.
One great way to save during an event like this is to look at gift cards and subscription cards that Best Buy sells. We're definitely going to see these cards go on sale, including things like Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. Even if you don't plan on buying anything concrete this 4th of July, you can invest in these cards now as a way to save down the line.
We'll roundup the best deals for you right here, but if there's something you want that you don't see you can browse the full sale. You'll most likely find a discount.
