Best Buy has started its Black Friday sales period with gusto. Not only are there loads of deals already on the site and in store, but it is adding to those with Flash Deals. These Flash Deals tend to feature deeper savings than the standard ones, but are only on limited stock quantities—basically if you see something you like in a Flash Deal, you need to act on it quickly.
- The best Black Friday PC gaming deals are all here. Check them out.
Like many other big resellers, Best Buy is offering price protection on deals. Essentially if you buy something at a deal price right now, but later on that price goes down, it'll refund the difference. You can find the full breakdown of how this works on the Black Friday FAQs page.
Keep an eye out for items that are marked as supporting this, as not everything is, although Best Buy is really clear about what is and isn't guaranteed—it's printed about the price of anything on sale.
We've taken a look at the deals that are currently active on Best Buy and highlighted them below. These are items that we feel are worth buying, not just the ones with the biggest savings. So good components and PCs that just so happen to be cheaper than normal. Definitely worth checking out.
Best Buy gaming PCs & laptops deals
MSI Stealth 15M | Inte Core i7 11375H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 1080p | 1TB | 16GB RAM |
$1,599.99 $1,299.99 at Best Buy (save $300)
Nvidia’s 30-series GPUs have made for some great gaming laptops, and the RTX 3060 makes for a particularly potent offering at 1080p on the go. You’ll get to ramp up those settings and still enjoy silky-smooth visuals, particular if the game has DLSS support. MSI has fitted out this machine well, with a quality 11th Gen Intel CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of NVMe storage. It’s a tasty looking machine as well.
Best Buy PC component deals
WD Black SN750 | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 |
$259.99 $109.99 at Best Buy (save $150)
That’s a major saving on the original MSRP, and while this was originally released a while ago now, it’s still a strong performing drive at a decent price. If you’re in the market for a PCIe 3.0 drive, then this is a good drive backed up by a big-name manufacturer. Performance is strong, the bundled software is good, and you know it’s going to be reliable. Not bad for just north of $100.
Western Dgitial Blue | 1TB | SATA |
$189.99 $89.99 at Best Buy (saving $100)
Best Buy may be pushing it a bit with that saving as this drive hasn’t been that much for years, but this is still a 1TB SATA drive from a respected brand for under $90. It’ll outperform a hard drive any day of the week, and it won’t be as hot or noisy when doing so. Reads peak at 560MB/s with writes a little slow at 530MB/s, but both are close to the interface’s maximum throughput.
Best Buy peripheral deals
Samsung T350 | 1080p | IPS | 4ms |
$189.99 $149.99 at Best Buy (save $40)
Now we’re talking cheap monitors, let’s look at the Samsung T350 on offer at Best Buy. This is actually a monitor we’ve come in contact with a lot, as Jacob has a pair of these at home. These don’t offer the most amazing picture quality in the world, but if you’re looking for a cheap way to buy two monitors at once, this is it.
HyperX Streamer Starter Pack | SoloCast USB Microphone | Cloud Core Gaming Headset |
$129.99 $99.99 at Best Buy (save $30)
HyperX knows what it’s doing when it comes to audio, and its Cloud headsets and SoloCast microphones have done well in our guides for a while now. This is a great combo if you don’t have either of these items. And while aimed at streamers, anyone that has to communicate while playing will benefit from the clarity these peripherals bring to your setup.
Razer Basilisk Ultimate | Wireless | Charging dock included | 20,000 DPI |
$169.99 $139.99 at Best Buy (save $30)
If you want to go all out on your gaming mouse, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is the way to go. It’s a fan favourite, and we’re big fans too, although clearly it’s a lot pricier than your average gaming mouse, even a wireless one. With the included charging dock, though, you can take the hassle out of charging your battery.
Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed | Wireless | 16,000 DPI | Right-handed |
$59.99 $36.99 at Best Buy (save $23)
Wireless shouldn’t mean expensive, and in the case of the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse, it doesn’t. Especially with this deal over at Best Buy. You can also rest assured this is a high quality mouse from a reputable brand with a great ergonomic shape.
WD_Black P50 | 1TB | USB 3.2 |
$249.99 $189.99 at Best Buy (saved $60)
This speedy external SSD managed to grab the second-place slot in our external SSD guide recently, making it a quality offering. Great overall performance and a sleek, rugged casing make it a great performance drive for console and PC gamers alike.
Vizio OLED55-H1 | 55-inch | OLED | 4K |
$1,299.99 $1,199.99 at Best Buy (save $100)
This 55-inch 4K television was a big hit in the sales last year, and it’s already enjoying some money off right now. The 120Hz refresh rate and support for HDMI 2.1 mean you can plug your consoles into it as well as your PC and enjoy some big-screen gaming.
