Grab it while you can – Best Buy has launched a 3-day sale on a variety of items, including some great deals on the Apple Watch Series 9, Watch Ultra 2 and Watch SE. The latter would be fine, but the first two have yet to be blocked by the ITC due to a patent dispute.
Before we get into the actual deals, it’s worth noting that this may be your last chance to get your holiday shopping done and get items delivered on time. To help with that, Best Buy is offering free shipping until December 21st at 11:30 AM EST. There will be free same-day delivery until 12pm on December 23-24. Last chance is to shop online, pick up in-store delivery until 5pm on the 24th.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Watch SE are all $50 off right now, while the Watch Series 9 is $70 off.
Apple’s other offering is for the older iPad 10.2 (9th generation model from 2021). The 64GB version (Wi-Fi) is now down to $250. It’s still a capable tablet, but keep in mind that the rest of Apple uses the Lightning connector while moving to USB-C.
You can also grab your first foldable — the Motorola Razr 2023 is down to just $500, which is mid-range territory. It’s not as powerful as the Razr+ as it only has a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset, but it has an almost identical 6.9-inch 144Hz internal display (and a smaller bezel display).
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is equipped with the fastest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and has better water resistance (IPX8).
Horizontal folds are represented by the Google Pixel Fold. This one has an IPX8 water resistance rating but uses the Tensor G2 chipset which can’t match the Snapdragon performance. The Pixel Fold has solid cameras, though, with a 48MP main (1/2.0”, OIS), a 10.8MP 112mm telephoto (5x, OIS) and a 10.8MP ultra wide (121°).
The Google Camera experience is even better with the sub-$1,000 Pixel 8 Pro, which is $200 off (even the 256GB model). It has a larger sensor at 50MP (1/1.31″), the 113mm periscope has a better sensor at 48MP and even the 126° ultra wide has been upgraded to a 48MP sensor.
The smaller Pixel 8 loses the periscope entirely and only has a super-wide 12MP shooter, but this phone is cheaper and more compact than its Pro sibling. Both Pixel 8 models are supported for 7 years (both software and hardware).
