It's only a couple of weeks before students will head back to school and college, so if you have some essentials you need to pick up, now's the time. Especially thanks to these back to school sales I've found at Best Buy.

If you need a new laptop to keep up with your work, the Asus ZenBook 14 OLED Laptop for $599 at Best Buy is an excellent choice. This laptop's configuration of a Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM makes it well-suited to everyday work. If you'd prefer to get a desktop computer, the Mac mini M2 for $499 at Best Buy is unbeatable value and the cheapest Mac you can buy. 

A good pair of headphones are pretty much essential in my eyes, and my top choice for students are the AirPods Pro 2 for $199 at Best Buy. They'll help you get through those long study sessions with their high-quality sound and strong noise-cancelling capabilities.

There are plenty more sales to be found, so keep scrolling for the best sales I've found at Best Buy this weekend. For more ways to save, check out our Best Buy coupon codes page.
