You can still score massive Black Friday discounts on TVs, laptops and smart speakers at Best Buy ahead of Cyber Monday. Here are 12 that Amazon can't beat.
Best Buy is officially the king of Black Friday sales, particularly those trickling into the weekend before Cyber Monday. You can snag great deals on cameras, laptops, appliances and smart home devices that even beat Amazon’s best offers right now. Best Buy deals also run the gamut with products from Microsoft, GoPro, Google and even Amazon receiving steep discounts.
Electronics retailer Best Buy is one of the unlikely business success stories of the late 20th century. After its competitors were crushed by the rise of online shopping, the company revamped its entire structure, shrunk its physical presence and put a laser focus on low prices.
Here are 12 of the biggest Black-Friday-into-Cyber-Monday deals at Best Buy that are better than what you’ll find on Amazon. (We also have a list of some Walmart deals that beat Amazon prices, too.)
Toshiba 32-inch Class V35 smart TV: $80
Save $120, plus free Echo Dot
A 32-inch smart TV with Amazon Fire support for under $100 might sound too good to be true, but it gets even better. Along with the killer price on a high-definition TV, Best Buy is throwing in a free Echo Dot (which is listed as a $40 value but is actually about $15 in many Black Friday sales).
If you’re looking to upgrade to a reasonably sized smart TV without breaking your bank, this slick Toshiba model might be your answer. It’s 60% off at Best Buy right now. It’s now out of stock at Amazon, but when it was available, it sold for $50 more.
GoPro Hero8 Black 4K waterproof action camera: $230
This tough little action camera gives you 4K60 plus 1080p, 240 frames per second quality video and three different levels of stabilization to keep your footage crystal clear. It’s waterproof to 33 feet and compatible with all of the various GoPro mounts and accessories. It’s also $70 off right now at Best Buy, which is $40 cheaper than you can find it at Amazon.

The Flip C433 gets a whopping $200 discount at Best Buy during Black Friday, which is nearly $60 cheaper than Amazon’s current lowest price of $235.

If you’ve mastered the art of air-fryer cooking, you know by now that you need a big air fryer to cook meals for a group of people. This large air fryer from Bella lets you make about six-and-a-half pounds of food at one time, with preset programs for French fries, chicken, fish, steak and more.
Intuitive touchscreen controls easily let you harness the 1,700-watt heating system, and the removable basket and tray are dishwasher safe. It’s 54% off right now at Best Buy, and it’s out of stock at Amazon.
