Cyber Monday is now in full swing. If you haven’t already done your shopping, now’s the time—today’s the last day of this month’s hot deals.
Fortunately for latecomers, many of the best-known tech devices have kept their exciting discounts. TVs, laptops, tablets, and Apple gear are just the tip of the iceberg. Headphones, smartwatches, PC components, and much more sport juicy discounts, too. Best Buy covers it all, and we’ve picked through the sales to find the best bargains. Our selections either scored high in our reviews or are extremely popular, with discounts that put them near or below the previous all-time low price.
Apple device deals
Discounts on Apple products are typically modest, but they improved considerably last week and are still holding today. The 2nd-gen AirPods Pro are a stupendous deal, given their recent launch.
True wireless earbud deals
Prices have dropped even further on select earbuds for Cyber Monday–—Anker and Jabra’s top buds (including one of our favorites, the Jabra Elite 85t) are at incredible all-time lows. Now is a fantastic time to pick up a pair of true wireless earbuds, especially if you want active noise canceling. And if you’re a Beats fan, the deals are further sweetened by the inclusion of a four-month subscription to Apple Music.
Wireless headphone deals
Several of the most popular noise canceling wireless headphones remain at all-time lows. The biggest discount to be found is on the older Beats Studio 3, at nearly 60 percent off. But our eye is on the Bose QuietComfort 45 and Sony WH-1000XM4—the latter is outclassed by this year’s release of the WH-1000XM5, but those on a tighter budget will still find plenty to love.
Fitness tracker deals
You can still catch Fitbit’s most popular fitness trackers at some of the lowest prices we’ve seen. At $50, the Inspire 2 is a very affordable way to start monitoring your exercise, even if it’s now the last-gen model. But if you prefer the newer, shinier Inspire 3, it’s available at a hefty discount, too. (For deals on Fitbit’s hybrid smartwatches, like the Versa 4, jump down to the Smartwatches category below.)
Gaming Accessory deals
Game controller deals
Gaming headset deals
Gaming mice deals
Best Buy’s Cyber Monday deals include many popular PC gaming peripherals, including Astro’s wallet-friendly A10 headset (down to an astonishing $20). Snag one of these fan-favorites, or check out Best Buy’s additional sales on mice, keyboards, headsets, and controllers.
Laptop deals have unfortunately shrunk quite a bit between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you can still grab a couple of Windows systems at a healthy discount.
- Samsung Odyssey G5, 27-inch 1440p display/165Hz refresh rate/FreeSync Premium (AMD Adaptive Sync), $270 (27% off)
- Dell S2722QC, 27-inch 2160p display/60Hz refresh rate/4ms response time, $280 (30% off)
Our roundup of the best Cyber Monday monitor deals has even more discounts to choose from, but Best Buy has a couple that are worth a look. The Dell model has dropped even further in price for Cyber Monday.
PC Component deals
Graphics card deals
Most people first turn to Newegg and Amazon when shopping for PC components, so it’s no surprise that Best Buy’s deals in this category are relatively light. Still, a few are worth a look, particularly the Crucial P5 Plus discount. It includes a low-profile heatsink, making it a perfect upgrade for PS5 owners needing more storage. For more PC part deals, check out our roundups of the best Cyber Monday graphics card and best Cyber Monday SSD deals.

- Fitbit Versa 2, assorted colors, 40mm – $100 (33% off)
- Garmin Forerunner 45, black, 42mm – $119 (30% off)
- Fitbit Sense, assorted colors, 40mm – $130 (48% off)

- Google Pixel Watch, assorted colors, 40mm – $300 (15% off)
In terms of discounts, hybrid smartwatches are the star of the show right now. These supercharged fitness trackers have fewer smart features than an Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watch, or Pixel Watch, but make up for it with far longer battery life. Our eye is on the first-gen Fitbit Sense, which we still like better than its successor if you want music control—it’s gotten an even deeper discount for Cyber Monday. The Versa 4 is also a good alternative if you want a slimmer, lighter watch that’s more focused on fitness.
Streaming device deals
Need to add streaming capabilities to an older TV, or just hate your smart TV’s interface? You can pick up a streaming device from Apple, Google, or Roku for seriously low prices at the moment. The Apple TV deal has gotten even better in price for Cyber Monday.
While TV deals can be found year round, Cyber Monday is still a good time to pick up a new model. Whether you want a generously sized screen for very little cash or a fancy OLED set at a deep discount, you’re covered. If you’ve been eyeing a TV that can double as a supersized computer monitor, check out the 48-inch LG A2, an OLED set that sports wonderfully deep blacks and vivid colors.

Amazon’s Android-based Fire tablets are still at all-time lows, as are its E-Ink based readers. And now that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablets have finally come down in price, we have a full range of Android tablets on sale—the choice is yours.
Are Best Buy’s Cyber Monday deals actually good?
Some of Best Buy’s deals are quite good! The tricky part is knowing which are the best deals and which aren’t, since major retailers generally put a bunch of stuff on sale. Not all items are solid products, and not all discounts are solid price drops. That’s where we come in—we sift through the sales to find good gear at truly great prices.
Are any of the Cyber Monday deals at Best Buy lower quality?
It depends on the product category, but usually the practice of creating special models for specific periods is limited to TVs. For most everything else, the items are the same as you’d find throughout the rest of the year. But again, that’s what we’re here for: We’ve carefully examined the specs and overall value of the deals listed above, so you can shop with more confidence and less hassle.
What kind of Cyber Monday deals can I expect at Best Buy?
Best Buy discounts most product categories during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. During the rest of the year, Best Buy’s sales trend more modest than other retailers—as one of the few stores that still has physical locations, it can’t be as aggressive in slashing prices. But during November, it wades much deeper into the fray. The trick is to know which items are also sold by other vendors: For common items like headphones, Amazon Echo speakers, Fitbits, and other consumer electronics, any good discount should match or even undercut a rival store.
For people who don’t have Amazon Prime subscriptions or can’t trust deliveries to arrive safely, Best Buy lets you get in on Black Friday discounts in a convenient way. You can order online and then opt to pick up in store. It can also be easier to make returns, since Best Buy will accept those in store as well, too. But the answer to this question is dependent on where you live and what’s easiest for you.
