Best Buy's 50-Hour Anniversary Sale Is Back

We saw some pretty good deals last year and are hoping we'll see more of the same this year.

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)
  • $200 off on Beats Studio Wireless
  • Up to $600 off on LG 4K TVs
  • $120 off on select iPad Mini 4
  • Up to $500 off on select iMacs
  • Up to $350 off on gaming PCs and monitors
  • Up to $300 off on select Windows PCs

If you're a student and plan on shopping during this event, be sure to to sign up for Best Buy's Student Deals. You'll be able to get an even steeper discount on many laptops and back to school items.

Don't forget to check if there are any Best Buy coupons available that can be used on your purchase as well. You can find all available Best Buy coupons and offers here.

Obviously, keep an eye on our Frontpage as all the best deals will surface there pretty quickly. We'll update this article as we get more info on what deals will be available tonight.

I hope they have a deal on an LTE iPad Pro. Otherwise I'll buy from Apple and get the free headphones.

Hm....I've been tracking some of these items. Looks like they're not really on sale. Same prices as before.
