Best Buy After-Christmas Sales on Laptops and Tablets

Best Buy’s pre-Christmas and clearance sales offered major laptop discounts that could continue beyond Christmas. Prices won’t beat 20 Days of Deals, which promise the lowest prices of the season. However, you can still get excellent Best Buy after-Christmas deals on these laptops and tablets:

  • MacBook Air: Select MacBook Pro models such as the 13.3-inch laptop with the Apple M1 chip and 8GB memory dropped $200 during Best Buy’s 20 Days of Deals.
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 7+: This 12.3-inch touchscreen was discounted before Christmas. However, open-box models can still be discounted further. Be on the lookout for ongoing savings after Christmas as it is marked down from $1,229.99 to $749.99.
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: This tablet was discounted by $350 during Best Buy’s 20 Days of Deals, suggesting Best Buy might aggressively discount any remaining pieces after Christmas.
  • Amazon Fire HD: This 10 to 10.1-inch tablet has seen significant discounts lately, which will likely only increase during the after-Christmas sale. It is marked down $60 off the former price of $149.99, putting it at a reasonable $89.99.

Best Buy After-Christmas Sales on TVs

The day after Christmas is perfect for watching sports, so it’s possible that Best Buy after-Christmas sales will bring some of the lowest TV prices seen so far this season.

  • TCL 55-inch Class 4-Series LED 4K UHD Smart Google TV: This Google TV is now under $300 and has an extended holiday return period.
  • Samsung 58-inch LED 4K UHD Tizen TV: Another Best Buy exclusive, this Samsung TU690T Series is nearly $100 off and has the option for 12-month financing.
  • Sony 65-inch Class BRAVIA XR A95K 4K HDR OLED Google TV: At the high end, this television dropped from $3,999 to $2,999 before Christmas. Since you could save $1,000, it might be worth a drive to find one after Christmas.

Best Buy After-Christmas Sales on Smartphones

If you are looking to gift someone — or yourself — a cell phone this year, Best Buy would be the place to check out. They have many year-end promotions, as well as after-Christmas deals. Best Buy works with such providers as Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.

  • Motorola Edge 2021: Motorola may be the dark horse in this race, but Best Buy has  some great deals on it. You can save up to $400 through Unlocked with activation and chances are sales will continue after Christmas.
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 Series: With activation, you can save between $250 to $400 on the S22 Ultras, depending on which version you choose. Expect a final push in after-Christmas sales if inventory lasts through Christmas.
  • Google Pixel 7: Through Unlocked, you can save $100 with activation — knocking the price down to $599.00 — and it comes with three months of YouTube Premium.

Other Best Buy After-Christmas Deals

Audio accessories, kitchen appliances and Christmas decorations get serious markdowns after Christmas. Although Best Buy likely won’t offer the lowest prices of the year on audio and fitness merchandise, you’ll still find great deals. Also, Best Buy might even have you covered for next Christmas.

  • Headphones: Beats by Dr. Dre, Airpods Max, Samsung Galaxy Live True Wireless Earbuds, Sony noise-cancelling headphones and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds all see price reduction during holiday sales. As new versions come out in the next year, older versions get a discount, which makes it a good time to buy.
  • Small kitchen appliances: KitchenAid standing mixers, Bella Pro Series air fryers and Keurig K-Cup pod coffee makers are all being priced to move during Best Buy’s 20 Days of Deals, which also means they will likely be discounted for the after-Christmas deals, as well.
  • Christmas-themed products: Every artificial Christmas tree listed on BestBuy.com was listed at full price and was sold out by the time Cyber Week ended, but your local store might have some inventory it needs to move. Look for rock-bottom prices on pre-lit trees and other Christmas-themed decorations.

More Ways To Save at Best Buy

In addition to slashing prices during after-Christmas sales, Best Buy gives you two additional ways to save online and in stores.

Additionally, the Best Buy Outlet aggressively discounts open-box items, which have been returned to the store and, in many cases, verified to be in “Excellent-Certified” condition.

FAQ

The holidays are a big time of year to spend money, but you can also find great deals. Here are the answers to some common questions about after-Christmas sales to help you find the best options.
  • Do things go on sale the day after Christmas?
    • Best Buy, along with many other stores, has a lot of deals after Christmas, from end-of-year clearance to after-Christmas sales. They want to move through some inventory to make room for new items, so they need to mark prices down.
  • Is it better to buy before or after Christmas?
    • Heading into the holiday season, stores such as Best Buy tend to amplify what deals you can get. They bring in extra inventory, which they put on special before Christmas, but if those items don't sell, they'll be discounted again after Christmas. This means the prices could be better after Christmas, but you will have fewer options in stock.
  • What is the day after Christmas sale called?
    • Best Buy's after-Christmas sale is typically referred to as the After-Christmas Sale or is part of another ongoing sale, like their 20 Days of Deals, end-of-year clearance or some other promotion.
