Best Buy's new year sales are a wonderful extra present for anyone looking to spend their gift money on some discounted tech, toys, home appliances and more.

I've been covering retail holidays for 16 years. In my opinion, Best Buy has been offering some of the best deals ever with discounts event I couldn't predict. While some prices have increased since Black Friday/Cyber Monday, Best Buy's new year sales are still offering aggressive pricing and beating competing retailers like Amazon and Walmart. 

Below I'm rounding up the best deals you can shop right now. If an item's price has slightly increased, I'll be sure to call it out and explain why it's still a good deal. From fitness trackers to Apple's latest devices, here my top Best Buy deals right now.
