Prime Day deals may be underway now, but Amazon's not the only game in town. Best Buy's cheekily named Black Friday in July sale (they could hardly call it the Anti-Prime Day Sale, could they?) is live too, and offers plenty of fantastic deals of its own.
It's not uncommon for Best Buy to offer an alternative Prime Day sale, but this year things are a bit different, in that Best Buy Totaltech members will get some extra perks. For instance, members will get access to sale prices through July 17 whereas it will end tomorrow (July 13) for everyone else. Plus, Best Buy is hinting that members will be able to "purchase a hard-to-find product" during the sale. (It's likely a PS5 restock will be offered for members only).
Best Buy Totaltech costs $199 per year, which makes it pricier than Amazon Prime ($139/year) or Walmart Plus ($98/year), but don't worry — because you can shop many of the best deals today even without being a member.
So scroll down for big savings on TVs, small kitchen appliances, and Apple gear, and keep checking back as we add more deals over the course of the next two days.
