Best Buy is offering a 24-hour flash sale that includes some big savings on gaming PCs and other hardware. You have to be a My Best Buy member in order to participate, but signing up for that is free, and frequently nets you $5-10 discounts on games, among other perks. On top of the immediate savings, you'll also get a $10 promotional reward certificate with any flash sale purchase. The gift certificate will be added to your account by July 7 and is valid from 7/7/19 to 7/28/19. The sale ends tonight at 10:00 PM PT / 1:00 AM ET on June 20, so get in there quickly if you want to take advantage.
PC gamers have a variety of options for brand new rigs, ranging from a reasonable $800 Acer 17.3" gaming laptop up to a fully tricked-out, $2,150 iBUYPOWER desktop with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. As an added bonus, the two top-end desktop models from iBUYPOWER also include a digital code for the upcoming first-person shooter sequel, Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
If you go for any of the desktops, you'll need a monitor to display all those crisp visuals. Alienware's 25" LED monitor refreshes at 240 Hz at 1080p, allowing for fast and smooth gaming at almost half of the full price. There are also options for a living room setup as well, with 4K UHD smart TVs from Hisense, LG, and TCL all available for at least $200 off. There are also good deals available on a Switch-compatible memory card from SanDisk that's over half off and an 8TB external hard drive for all your deep storage needs.
Of course you'll need something to play on that new rig once you have it set up. You can spend the included gift card on Arkane's fantastic immersive sim, Prey, which is already $10 on PC (making it free!). You can also drop it on some hotly-anticipated pre-orders, such as Jedi: Fallen Order and Doom Eternal. Check out all the sale highlights below.
