MacBooks. iPads. HP laptops. HDTVs. Vacuums. Apple Watches. Xbox and Nintendo Switch games.
What do all of those things have in common? They are massively marked down at Best Buy for Monday, April 30.
Best Buy is having a 24-hour online only flash sale today, and that’s the sale lineup. (Cue heart eye emoji.) We don’t know what this random Black Friday-ish sale is for, but we’re not complaining.
And this isn’t just some little $10 off sale: We’re talking $200 off here, free Xbox games there — Best Buy is even offering up to $500 off select MacBook models including the MacBook Pro. We probably don’t have to tell you this, but getting a brand new MacBook for under a grand is the next best thing to a miracle.
TL;DR — here are the quick details:
Want more info? Here are the extra details on our favorite deals of the bunch. (Note: The sale is 24 hours only, so if you’ve been waiting months for a price to drop, we’d suggest making your move today.)
Have you been on the fence about investing in a MacBook? Well, you should know that multiple models are up to $500 off today, which means some are less than $1,000. That’s literally a better deal than Best Buy had on Black Friday — and if that’s not a reason to cave, we don’t know what is.
These MacBooks feature a 12-inch retina screen with over three million pixels and edge-to-edge glass, and are somehow the lightest and thinnest MacBooks ever. They’re also extremely energy efficient, if you care about that (you should), with a battery that’s said to last all day. And all of that runs on a tiny 5 watts of power, so you won’t have to worry about overheating or burning your lap. You want that touch bar and even sharper graphics, you say? Good thing the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro is $500 off at just $1,499.99. Amazing.
Available in space grey, gold, silver, or rose gold in the 256GB and 512GB models, you can get the $500 savings on the classic MacBook here and the MacBook Pro here. If you’re a student, you can save an extra $50 by signing up for .
Wanna make your life 10 times easier? The Apple Watch Series 3 is the ultimate combo of smartwatch and fitness tracker, and basically a smartphone on your wrist — and a ton are $40 off today (including those with Nike+ and the in-ear workout coach). It sports a sleek, rectangle design, with smartwatch features like calling, texting, music streaming, and phone notifications. As a fitness tracker, the Series 3 measures workouts from running, to biking, to high-intensity interval training, with the expected water resistance, heart rate monitor, and distance tracking present as well. The built-in GPS is also notable, as it’s still pretty rare in most fitness trackers.
As if a touchscreen laptop from HP weren’t enough on its own, you can now snag this HP 15.6-inch Touch-Screen Laptop with an Intel Core i3 processor for $70 off its original $449.99. If you’re a gamer or work with a lot of programs on a daily basis, this is one laptop that can keep up. Its 8 GB of RAM can handle any demand you throw at it, and the 1TB hard drive is something you usually don’t see in any laptops that are under $1,000. Though you’ll have the laptop working hard, HP’s CoolSense feature automatically adjusts the temperature to prevent overheating or leg burning. That’s a huge amount of things for a not huge price.
Regularly $449.99, you can save $70 and get it for just $379.99 here.
Psst: You can get a non-ancient iPad for under $400 today. That never happens. If you’re not ready to make the jump to an iPad Pro or the newest iPad, this deal is calling your name. The 5th generation iPad is ultra portable at 9.7 inches and only weighs one pound — but that doesn’t mean it’s small when it comes to power. That giant 128 GB gets you nearly 57,000 photos, 6,000 apps, and up to 32 HD videos, for just a tiny bit more than a regularly priced 32 GB iPad. And, as one of the first iPads that doesn’t require Wi-Fi, the 5th generation iPad can operate on cellular data from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, because depending on wonky Wi-Fi is seriously annoying.
Regularly $429, you can snag the 5th generation iPad for $100 off at just $329 here.
If you somehow still haven’t made the upgrade to the Xbox One X or gotten your hands on the Nintendo Switch yet, what are you doing with your life? (Just kidding.) (Kind of.) Okay, we get it — those things can be pricey, and what’s the fun in having a new console if you can’t afford any games after your purchase? Thankfully, this Best Buy sale can lend a hand. When you buy either console, you’ll get to pick out a free game (three if you do the Xbox) as well. Have you seen Best Buy’s Xbox and Switch game selection? Some of those games are $70 or $80, so we’d say getting one for free is a pretty sweet gig.
