Best Buy’s 2-day Anniversary Sale is now live and amongst all the other notable deals, we’re now seeing discounts on a selection of Amazon Echo devices starting at $40 shipped. One notable price drop is for the Echo Show at $129.99. That saves you $100 from the going rate at Amazon and matches our previous mention for the all-time low. All of the discounted Alexa devices carry 4+ star ratings. Head below for more or check out the entire sale here.
Best Buy has launched its 2-day Anniversary Sale this morning, discounting MacBooks, Apple Watch, TVs, smart home accessories and much more. You can find all of the deals on this landing page, or hit the jump for more details and our top picks. A new twist in today’s sale is that My Best Buy members receive free shipping on all orders (sign-up here at no cost). Otherwise, the usual $35 minimum remains.
Walmart offers the previous-generation 9.7-inch iPad Wi-Fi 128GB in Silver or Gold for $349 shipped. Originally $429, this is a great deal to get a higher-storage option iPad and is right in line with what we normally see them drop to. We have seen it drop down to around $329, but only in limited cases. Do note that this is the previous generation without Apple Pencil support.
In recent years vinyl has enjoyed an impressive resurgence as it found a home in our mostly digital world. The so-called “vinyl resurgence” started in 2007, slowly seeing sales increase over the next 10-years to levels not seen since the 1980s or earlier. If you’re anything like me, it’s easy to depend on Apple Music with an entire library at your fingertips. But vinyl offers a different experience, as there is just something about placing a record on to a turntable that Apple and Spotify simply can’t match.
Last year I dove into the world of vinyl strictly out of curiosity. In the meantime, I’ve enjoyed building a small collection and learning some of the nuances of this hobby. If you’re at all interested, check out the short guide below to learn how you can construct your own vinyl library from the beginning.

B&H is currently offering up to $200 off current generation 12-inch MacBooks. Meanwhile, Best Buy is offering $100 off plus an additional $150 discount for students. It’s worth noting that B&H doesn’t charge tax at the time of purchase for shoppers outside of New York or New Jersey, so you may ultimately be better off there than Best Buy. Today’s offers are $50 better than our previous mention. Apple is expected to introduce a refresh to some of its MacBook lineup next month, but details are scarce on which models will be featured.

Best Buy is now taking $100 off Apple’s latest 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros. You can leverage student discounts (more information here) to drop an additional $150 off your total. That’s up to $100 better than our mention last week at eBay on the 13-inch configurations, and the entry-level 15-inch model. If you need the higher-end machine, you can still do better with that Electronics Valley deal which is still live. Simply hit this page at Best Buy and choose your configuration on the right. If you don’t mind previous-generation models, Best Buy has a host of discounts on older MacBooks that can also be paired with those education deals referenced above. Head over to the student deal hub to secure your coupon.
