Best Buy's weekend sale has a Back-to-School theme (opens in new tab), which means it's loaded with technology for students or those of us who kinda miss when we all we had to worry about was being a student. Of course, it is July so there is a whole lot of summer left. Maybe you want to fill that time with video games and binge watching your favorite shows. Maybe you just want to get ready for the new school year by outfitting yourself with some good headphones or a powerful laptop that'll help you be a bit more productive. 

This Best Buy sale definitely covers a little bit of everything. We've rounded up some of the best student deals we could find, but you'll probably still want to browse the full sale, especially if you're looking for something specific not on our list. Remember in addition to free shipping on most things, you can order for in-store pickup if you'd rather get it really fast.

The sale will only last through the end of the day on July 24, so grab what you want while you can.
