Best Buy Takes on Amazon With Its Own ‘Bigger Deal’ Savings Event

Best Buy’s week-long savings event has a tongue-in-cheek name, but the deals are real

Amazon’s annual Prime Day sales event is taking place on June 21 and June 22, but you don’t have to wait a week to get a good deal. Best Buy has launched The Bigger Deal Savings Event, which runs from today through June 22.

This tongue-in-cheek response to Prime Day pokes fun at Amazon, but the deals Best Buy is offering are no joke. You can save hundreds of dollars on TVs, appliances, computers, smartphones, cameras, soundbars, headphones, and even grills.

The Bigger Deal Savings Event also has a couple of big advantages that Amazon can’t match. First, you don’t need a paid subscription to get Best Buy’s deals. Amazon Prime costs $129 per year, and is required to participate in Prime Day. Second, you can walk into a physical Best Buy location and see the gear that’s on sale before you take it home. It’s faster than one-day shipping, and you can do an in-person side-by-side comparison if you’re torn between two options.

Best Buy’s Bigger Deal Savings Event may not have quite as many discounts as Prime Day, but the week-long sale is anything but an attention grab. We rounded up the top deals that are available right now, but we recommend checking back regularly to see Best Buy’s “Deal Of The Day,” which is only available for a limited time.

1. GoPro HERO9 Black

Best Buy

GoPro has become shorthand of “action camera,” and the Hero9 is a great example why. The pocket-sized cam can record 5K video, take 20 Megapixel photos, work as a webcam, survive under water, and even uses a built-in microphone to respond to verbal requests like “GoPro, take a photo.” If you plan on traveling this summer, this is a must-have.

2. Samsung Odyssey Gaming Monitor

Samsung’s Odyssey is an HD curved monitor with an ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate that ensures your games look smooth. The monitor stands out because of its abundance of ports, high peak brightness, and support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology, which prevents visual glitches like screen tearing.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro is Apple’s most powerful laptop to date. It’s the perfect pick for students, office workers, video editors, photographers, and travelers. Its best feature is its battery, which can last up to 20 hours on a single charge. We’ve tested this machine, and it’s the best portable computer we’ve tried.

Apple’s AirPods Pro face a lot of steep competition from the likes of Sony and Bowers & Wilkins, but they’re still the best pick for most people.
