Cyber Week deals are still happening at some retailers. Here are some of the best for smartphones and tablets.
Google Pixel: Best Buy will give you a $100 gift card if you activate a contract for the Pixel phone with Verizon. Note that while the smaller 5-inch Google Pixel is available, the larger 5.5-inch Pixel XL is not easy to come by – at Best Buy or anywhere it’s sold for that matter. Often, there is no XL stock at Best Buy, Verizon, or the Google Store. But overall both Pixel phones have gotten good reviews.
iPhone 7: Save $100 with the purchase of an iPhone – including the newest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – when you throw in Beats wireless headphones. If you buy any iPhone with a monthly installment plan and purchase a Powerbeats3 or Beats Solo3 wireless headphone, you can save $100. This isn’t a trivial offer because Apple’s wireless AirPods are not available yet, despite the heavy marketing Apple did back in September. Apple has delayed the launch of the AirPods because it needs “more time” to get the product ready. So, the Beats wireless headphones are a decent alternative with the discount.
Surface Book: Microsoft is cutting $200 off a high-end Surface Book, the company’s premium hybrid tablet-laptop line. Price is reduced to $2,499 from the regular price of $2,699. The model is loaded and includes a fast 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 512GB solid-state drive, 16GB RAM, an Nvidia graphics chip, a 13.5-inch (3,000-by-2,000) touch screen, and Surface Pen.
It’s worth noting that the Microsoft Store continues to discount laptops too, with savings up to $350 on Dell laptops, for instance.
A variety of tablets are on sale for Cyber Week at Best Buy. Some of the highlights include:
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S 12-inch 2-in-1 tablet: On sale for $899.99, reduced $100 from the regular price of $999.99. The TabPro S is a standalone Windows 10 tablet that converts to a laptop via a detachable keyboard. Other specifications include a 6th generation Intel Core m3 processor; 12-inch AMOLED display, 8GB memory, and a 256GB solid state drive.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1: Discounted $70 to $229.99 from the regular price of $299.99. Specifications include Android 6.0 “Marshmallow” operating system, 10.1-inch display (1,920-by-1,200), 16GB of storage, and an Octa-(eight) core processor.
The Microsoft Store is discounting the Fitbit Charge HR Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband (Black) fitness wristband— the price is cut to $129.95, $20 off the regular price of $149.95.
