Best Buy is one of my go-to retailers for discounts. As deals editor at Tom's Guide, it's my job to find the best bargains for our readers, and I've found that Best Buy tends to offer great discounts. That's not to say all of their deals are epic, but on a day-to-day basis I tend to keep my eye on their sales.
Today Best Buy launched a massive three-day anniversary sale. Weekend sales are common at Best Buy, but this sale is beating even their last weekend sale with price lows on devices we've named Editor's Choice or best picks.
Before you get too excited, it's worth mentioning that Labor Day sales will start later this month and Labor Day tends to bring about epic deals from not just Best Buy, but multiple retailers. However, if you can't wait — or if you're back to school shopping — then I'm rounding up my favorite Best Buy Anniversary Sale discounts below.
Remember, Best Buy recently updated its My Best Buy membership tiers. If you're not a member, the free tier scores you free shipping and is a no-brainer to join if you're going to make a purchase. Also, check our roundup of all Best Buy coupon codes as these could save you even more money.
