This year's Best Buy 50-Hour sale event starts 8/18 at 8 p.m. PT (10 p.m CT/11 p.m. EST) and ends at 9:59 p.m. PT Sunday, 8/20. It's the second year in a row Best Buy is running this sale, featuring "Black Friday-like" deals in celebration of their 51st year of being in business.
Last year, this became a very popular sale on Slickdeals with lots of Frontpage deals popping up throughout the day. Gaming fans who were Gamers Club Unlocked members found great deals on games when combining the sale with a VISA Checkout offer. For example, The Last of Us: Remastered, Until Dawn was available for only $12.
Definitely do a quick site search on Slickdeals before buying anything to see how the deal compares to recent ones. We're sure there will be some outstanding deals during this sale, but there will most likely also be a lot of "meh" deals. Do your research and you'll be able to tell slick deals from average ones. For example, the Harman/Kardon Onyx Studio 3 portable bluetooth speaker is listed at $189, offering a $260 savings. But if you do a quick site search you'll see that it was available for $199 just a month ago and no one cared. It's a better deal now, but it's not mind blowing.
This year, Best Buy featured these deal previews in their press release:
- Up to $500 off on select MacBooks
- Up to $300 off on iPhone 7/7+
- $70 off on Samsung Gear S3 Tumi Smartwatch (Only at Best Buy)
