Update: Best Buy's 3-day sale is over. However, there are still a few items that are on sale. Many of the Apple sales are expired, but we've found the same sale prices at other retailers.
Mid-June can be a tricky time for deals. Sure, there are still a few Father's Day sales you can shop today, but in a matter of days we'll start seeing the first 4th of July sales. Those will be rapidly followed by Prime Day. That makes it tricky to pull the trigger on any big-ticket items since the possibility exists that anything you buy now could be cheaper in a matter of days.
To make matters more complicated, Best Buy launched a massive 3-day weekend sale on Friday. (The sale ends today/Sunday). I've been covering retail events for over a decade and Best Buy is one of my go-to stores for good deals. That's not to say they always have the lowest price — oftentimes Amazon undercuts them by a few bucks — but they're still reliable and one of the stores I go to when I personally look for deals.
So I'm combing through Best Buy's 3-day sale and picking out the items I recommend buying. These are the TVs, smartphones, and headphones that I don't foresee being significantly cheaper in the coming weeks. If something's a good deal, but could get cheaper next month — I'll also call that out. So whether you're shopping for dad, yourself, or just browsing the sales — here are the top deals in Best Buy's weekend sale.

Smart TV sale: deals from $69 @ Best Buy
Best Buy currently has one of the most epic TV deals of all time. The retailer has smart TVs on sale for as low as $69. Keep in mind, the cheap TVs tend to be smaller, 720p models (which are more suitable for a children's room or guest room). However, the sale also includes larger sets. These are among the cheapest TVs we've seen from Best Buy.
