New Best Buy 3-day sale
Best Buy has rolled out a new 3-day sale this weekend featuring deals on all the usual categories, including Apple, TVs, smart home and more. A selection of official Apple iPhone cases headlines this weekend’s sale. That includes 25% off for My Best Buy members (free to sign-up), and a return to all-time lows on various models. You can grab iPhone 11 Pro Smart Battery Cases for $104 (Reg. $129) or iPhone 11 at $99 if you skip over to Amazon, which beats Best Buy’s price by a few dollars currently.
My Best Buy members can also save $50 on HomePod, which brings the price down to $250. This isn’t as strong of an offer as we’ve seen in recent months, but it’s still the best out there in new condition.
iPad mini 5 is $50 off, as well, matching the deals that we shared with you earlier this week at Amazon. That’s a match of the best we’ve seen so far all-time.
Take up to $300 off Mac mini
Amazon and B&H are clearing out 2018 Mac mini inventory today with up to $300 off various models. You can pick up the entry-level 128GB version for $679, which is a $120 savings from the usual price and $40 better than our previous mention. Hop over to B&H for additional deals including the full $300 off high-end models. Of course, Apple refreshed its Mac mini lineup earlier this week, increasing storage on the entry-level offering to 256GB at $799.
DJI’s Osmo 4K Action Cam sees $80 discount
Amazon offers the DJI Osmo 4K Action Cam for $289. Usually selling for $369, today’s offer is good for an $80 discount, is the best in months, and the lowest we’ve seen to date. Armed with the ability to record all your adventures in 4K60, DJI Osmo sports a rugged, waterproof design as well. While there’s a 2-inch touchscreen on the back, you’ll also find a front-facing display for lining up shots and ensuring all the action is in the frame. Other standout features here include slow-motion and timelapse capture, as well as the ability to customize exposure settings and more.
Save on entry-level Apple Watch Series 5
Amazon is currently discounting the entry-level Apple Watch Series 5 GPS in a variety of colors starting at $360 for the 40mm version. Upgrade to the 44mm style for $390. In either case, you’ll be pocketing $39 in savings and dropping the price to the second-lowest we’ve seen to date at Amazon. Apple’s latest wearable delivers an always-on Retina display for the first time, alongside the 30% larger screen over Series 3. There’s also improved heart rate tracking, ECG monitoring, and a new compass app to set this version apart from its predecessor. The entire package is backed by a swimproof design, as well as the usual notification features, fitness tracking capabilities, and more. Dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.
Save $100 Bose’s AirPlay 2 Soundbar 700
Amazon is currently offering the Bose Soundbar 700 Smart Speaker for $699. Slashing $100 off the going rate, today’s discount is only the third time we’ve seen this soundbar on sale and matches the Amazon all-time low set for the first time over the holidays. Headlined by AirPlay 2 support, this soundbar touts built-in voice control from both Alexa and Assistant. The audio is equally well-equipped, with Dolby Digital encoding, ADAPTIQ sound calibration, and more. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pave the way for the aforementioned smart home compatibility, and there’s HDMI-ARC and optical ports, as well. You can get a closer look in our launch coverage.
