Best Buy’s long expected Bigger Deal sales event is here.

This timely sale also comes right before Father’s Day this Sunday (June 20) so if you’ve been waiting to pick up something for dad, this is the very last opportunity. We’ve highlighting some of our favorite offers below, and will continue to add deals as they appear.
Hit the road with peace of mind when you have the Ring ecosystem monitoring your home. Best Buy is discounting refurbished Ring Elite video doorbells to only $130 this weekend, which is more than half off the original price of $300. This full 1080p doorbell camera system allows you to connect directly to your front door while you’re away. See when your packages are dropped off or communicate directly to visitors via the built-in microphone and speakers. It also features motion-activated alerts and infrared night vision for around the clock surveillance. The Elite model connects to and is powered by ethernet so you stay in touch even if the Wi-Fi is out. But for the same reason, you might want to consider getting professional installation. All Ring refurbished doorbells come with a 1-year warranty.
The WH-1000XM3 was CNET’s top pick for noise-canceling headphones until the WH-1000XM4 came out. It is still a fan favorite when it comes to performance and comfort fit. Now that the price has dropped to $250, it arguably might be the best balance of price and features you can get without breaking the bank. You can read more about it at CNET’s Sony WH-1000XM3 review.
Get Dad something to take on his next adventure — like this GoPro Hero 9 Black action camera, now $70 off. GoPro went big on design and feature when they introduced the Hero 9 Black. Featuring up to 5K resolution, an upgradable lens, front-facing screen for selfies, bigger battery and even more shooting options than its predecessors, they designed this to be the no FOMO camera. It is a bit larger than the Hero 8 Black (also $50 off) but that is a good thing according to Joshua Goldman’s review. You can get it now for $370.

Getting tired of being snuck up on in your favorite game? That won’t be a problem anymore with this wireless 7.1 surround sound headset from Razer. The Nari Ultimate touts THX Spatial Sound and what they call intelligent haptic feedback to give you the sensation of 360-degree audio. According to our Patrick Holland, the haptic feedback is a slight vibration effect generate from the special software to simulate directional sound. Combine that with a crystal clear and retractable mic and you’ll be the envy of game night. This is one of the biggest markdowns we’ve seen for these premium headset.

This Samsung Chromebook is perfect to send your recent grad off to school with this fall. While most Chromebooks in the sub $300 range offers only 11 to 14-inch screens, this Samsung gives you a spacious 15-inch full HD 1080p display to help you get things done. Zoom into meetings with the 720p front-facing camera and enjoy up to 10 hours of work or entertainment with its long-lasting battery.
Whether it’s to drown out college dorm noises or making the library their personal study hall, any grad can appreciate a quality pair of noise-canceling headphones to take with them this fall. These Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones were my go-to commuting headphones. They used to offer one of the best balance between portability, comfort and features, but now at $250 they can check off the affordability box, too. The best part about these headphones is how compact and durable they are for travel compared to even the Bose 700. Speaking of, that model is also $50 off as well.
