Ah, Cyber Monday. I just can’t quit you.
This past Friday, I had the enviable opportunity to shop at Best Buy Canada with my very own private tour guide – Tyrone Powell, also known as Ty the Best Buy Guy. He took us through the store and highlighted the very best deals, which I’m happy to share with you today!
Picture above, House of Marley home audio. Aren’t the items just gorgeous? Love the island vibe. And practically everything is on sale!
First and foremost, click here for the Cyber Monday flyer. The sale begins at 12:01 AM online at BestBuy.ca, or you can shop in-store during regular store hours. You’ll find incredible deals on everything from home entertainment to mobile phones; laptops to Blu-ray movies.
The entire Windows section was buzzing, and to quote Ty, “the people are where the deals are”. The Best Buy store I visited, located at Hyde Park Gate in Oakville, recently went through an extensive renovation – think Best Buy meets designer showroom.
You won’t want to miss the amazing sale prices on laptops (the ACER model below is only $399 – save $100!) and tablets. They don’t call it Cyber Monday for nothing! Ty pointed out an HP 14″ Laptop for only $299 (a great first laptop!), in addition to savings on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3.
We spent the most time in this zone, mainly because the deals were plentiful and there was a good ratio of customers to store associates. Don’t discount the value of eliciting advice from a Best Buy associate; they’re trained to expertly answer your questions (even on the busiest days!) and provide you with all the information you need to make an informed purchase. Below, Ty counsels my husband on the merits of the Surface Pro.
Next, we moved on to printers. Hold on to your hats, folks, because I have some deals for you! Introducing the least expensive high-quality printer you’ll ever find – the Canon PIXMA Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer for just $49.99 (half price!). It offers printing, copying, scanning and fax, as well as WiFi connectivity for convenient, wireless printing from your mobile device.
Now, if a laser printer is more your jam, feast your eyes on this epic offer: the HP LaserJet Pro Wireless All-In-One Laser Printer With Fax for only $99.99! That’s a savings of $160… HUGE! I can’t tell you how quickly these were selling; practically every other person in line had one in their cart. At that price… I get it!
It was time to check out the televisions – also known as my husband’s happy place. Best Buy makes it easy to settle in and feel at home – with comfortable seating, premium sound bars and the spectacular selection of high definition televisions, expect to spend a lot of time here (like, A LOT).
Sony and Samsung are rewarded with their own “rooms”; LG has a smaller dedicated section on its own. Below, my husband marvels at the extremely thin profile of the newer generation models.
So, what can you expect sales-wise? There are simply too many for me to list here! Pop online to view the savings, and pop in-store if you require some expert assistance from a Best Buy associate.
On our way to the “fun” stuff (video games, mobile phones and movies!) my husband did linger in the SONOS section. We didn’t find any deals to report back with, but that didn’t stop my husband from campaigning *hard* for SONOS under the Christmas tree. His #OMG moment is below!
Finally, we moved over to the gaming zone. My boys, currently obsessed with our PS4, would do well with this LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, on sale for $89.99. The kit features a mix of characters from the best brands in the LEGO universe, including DC Comics, Lord of the Rings, and The LEGO Movie!
You can also find PlayStation 4 DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controllers on sale for $49.99 – that’s a savings of $25 per controller! They’re great add-on gifts, or perhaps an expensive stocking stuffer for an adult gamer.
Finally, the most hopping part of the store had to be the Best Buy Mobile zone. With a dedicated customer service bay and tons of smartphones currently on promo, it’s no surprise that customers are lining up for the savings.
(The BIG Deal: iPhone 6 starts at just $29.99 after $50 trade-in credit, with select new or renewal 2-year plans. Regular price: $269.99!)
Well folks, I have barely touched the amount of fabulous sales you can find this Cyber Monday at Best Buy Canada. Remember, you can view the Cyber Monday flyer before the sale begins at 12:01 AM online at BestBuy.ca. Happy Shopping!
Special thanks to Ty the Best Buy Guy and Best Buy Canada for the time and attention!
