20 Best Bargain-Friendly Buys at Best Buy
Electronics and home essentials at only the best prices.
When Best Buy was founded back in 1966, it was an audio-specialty store called Sound of Music. It wasn't until 1983 that the retailer rebranded to Best Buy, due to the fact that it had begun to sell far more than just audio supplies and needed a name to reflect that. Today, the electronics powerhouse is a far cry from the small audio equipment store it once was; with more than 1,000 locations across North America, Best Buy is largely considered the place to go for everything from cameras and cell phones to appliances and audio equipment.
However, it's not just the store's ubiquity or even vast selection that makes Best Buy such a great place to shop. Rather, people flock to the superstore because, in every department and throughout every aisle, there are always deals to be had. Herein, we've rounded up some of the best cheap items from Best Buy.
JLab Audio Wireless Earbuds
$50; buy now at bestbuy.com
If the infamous Apple AirPods are simply out of your price range, then consider buying these wireless earbuds from JLab Audio instead. With a charging case that provides 10 hours of battery, three different audio settings, and a built-in microphone, these sound-blasting buds work hard and play hard.
Hatchimals Two-Pack Blind Box
$5$2; buy now at bestbuy.com
Who could forget Hatchimals? In 2016, the $60 hatching eggs sold out worldwide just weeks before Christmas, leading to price hikes on third-party marketplaces by hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Luckily, the demand for the toy has died down a bit since then, but that's not to say they've fallen out of favor.
Kids still go crazy for all of the various Hatchimal products on the market, and so whenever you see a deal on one—like this sale on a two-pack of collEGGtibles—you should snatch it up and save it for the next major holiday or gift-giving celebration.
