Best Buy officially launches their Black Friday in July sale tomorrow, but you can get early access if you’re a My Best Buy member. (Registration is free and you’ll be granted immediate access.)
While there are some good buys in here – our tech editors pointed out the Asus Laptop and Jawbone Activity Tracker in particular – these are nowhere close to the prices we’ve seen at Best Buy on previous Black Fridays. It’s hard to forget that last year the iPad mini was bundled with a $100 Best Buy gift card for $200. This is also not the best season for buying televisions, though the models we mention in our list below are still good buys at this price for this time of year.
These some of our top picks from the sale:
- iPad with Retina display – $329.99 (was $399.99)
- Apple MacBook Pro with Intel Core i5, 13.3″ Display, 4GB Memory and 500GB Hard Drive – $1,049.99 (was $1,199.99)
- Panasonic 60″ Class LED 1080p 129Hz Smart HDTV – $879.99 (was $1,199.99)
- Asus 15.6″ Laptop with Intel Celeron, 4GB Memory, 500GB Hard Drive (Black) – $197.99 (was $249.99)
