 Cyber Monday has taken over from Black Friday with major retailers like Amazon, Target and Walmart putting out some great savings. Best Buy is also getting in on the fun. It had a 12-hour flash sale and while some of the bigger savings look to have already expired, there are still some great discounts still available on a variety of great products including Apple’s MacBook Air, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 and plenty more. 

But act fast as these deals may not hang around long and once they’re gone, they’re gone. We’ve pulled together a variety of our favorites for you to look through and try and find something for that special someone or just as a treat for yourself.

If you have an Android phone and you’re in the market for a matching smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic might be the one you’re looking for. With new fitness features and the latest Wear OS, the Samsung device is the best smartwatch for Android you can buy right now — and it’s $50 off!

Microsoft

The Surface Pro 7 is a great combination laptop and tablet and boast some impressive specs like a 10th gen Intel Core processor, 8 GB of RAM, and both USB-A and USB-C inputs, all in a package that weighs less than 2 pounds. While its no longer the most advanced model on the market, at almost half the price of the new Surface Pro 8, this is an absolute steal.

With the arrival of Beats new Fit Pro earbuds, I assumed we’d see some nice discounts on the earlier and less feature-rich Beats Studio Buds, which list for $150, or only $50 less than the new $200 Beats Fit Pro. I predicted we might see their price dip to $100 and sure enough, that’s what their price is (and a new low).

The Beats Studio Buds look a lot like the rumored stemless AirPods that people were talking about but never materialized — as AirPods anyway. Geared toward both iOS and Android users, they’re missing a few key features on the Apple side of things (there’s no H1 or W1 chip), but they’re small, lightweight earbuds that are comfortable to wear and offer good sound. They fit most ears securely, including mine — I run with them without a problem — but others may find a better fit with the Beats Fit Pro and their integrated wing tips.

We often call the MacBook Air the most universally useful laptop you can buy. The latest version swaps out Intel CPUs with Apple’s own M1 chip, but it’ll be a transparent transition for most. After all, MacBook Air users are usually looking for a sleek, reasonably priced machine that just works. The system is also finally truly fanless, replacing the cooling fans with an aluminum heat spreader inside, as well as taking advantage of the highly efficient M1 chip. For a base price of $999, and often on sale for at least $100 less, it’s a great value, considering these tank-like laptops can last for years. Right now, though, you can get it or the 512GB version for $100 off.

Lovesacs are popular but they can also be expensive. Best Buy has a few different variants of the Sac on sale today for 25% off, which means prices start out as low as $375 which is a great price for these. Be sure to check out all the options available now.

Oculus

Like other retailers, Best Buy doesn’t offer a direct discount on the Quest 2, but you will get a free $50 gift card that can be used toward a future purchase. The Quest 2 rarely gets discounted, and while you are still technically paying full price for the unit itself, the gift card is something you won’t want to miss out on. Note that the deal is currently showing as unavailable on Amazon.

This 2021 model of the Fire HD 10 Plus is Amazon’s most advanced tablet to date. It features 4GB of RAM (twice as much as the previous generation) and a stunning 1080p 10.1-inch display. And at 42% off, this is the absolute lowest price we’ve seen. It’s also being price-matched at Amazon.

Samsung

The Galaxy Book Pro 360 boasts some pretty impressive specs for a combination laptop and tablet. It features 16GB of RAM and a full terabyte of memory, as well as a dazzling 15.6-inch AMOLED display for vibrant color. And with 20 hours of battery life and weighing barely over 3 pounds, it’s still plenty portable.

The Sony WH-XB910Ns are a great, budget-friendly option for noise-canceling headphones. They can also pair with up to two Bluetooth devices at the same time for easy switching between devices. They were featured in our list of the best Sony headphones from this year.
