WD Black C50 1TB Xbox Expansion Card
You can snag the 1TB expansion card for $130 when purchasing select Xbox consoles. The C50 is one of two officially licensed expansion cards for Xbox Series X|S. So if you're running out of space on your Xbox, now's a great time to pick up this plug-and-play storage expansion solution.
Hori Split Pad Pro
There's no denying that the Nintendo Switch is one of the best handheld gaming platforms of all time, but it's not the most comfortable. If you're looking to replace your Joy-Cons with something that has better ergonomics, the Hori Split Pad Pro is the way to go. These are inexpensive add-ons that add a more traditional controller design to the Switch, are fairly durable, and have extra features like back buttons built into them.
Xbox Series X Diablo 4 Bundle
Best Buy's deal on the Diablo 4 Xbox Series X bundle essentially gets you the hit action-RPG for free, making it one of the best options for prospective Xbox Series X owners.
Samsung Odyssey G51C 32" Gaming Monitor
The Samsung Odyssey G51C is a Best Buy-exclusive version of the brand's popular Odyssey gaming monitor series. The 32-inch HDR10 panel offers 2560x1440p resolution, a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and FreeSync support.
Turtle Beach Recon Xbox and PC Controller
One of our favorite budget pro-style Xbox controllers is on sale for 50% off. The Turtle Beach Recon features textured grips, a pair of back buttons, and built-in audio features not found in most Xbox controllers.
Nintendo Switch Holiday Bundle
The 2023 Nintendo Switch Holiday Bundle comes with a standard Nintendo Switch, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online.
Lego isn't just a perfect gift for your friends, but also for yourself. Remember, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a constructive afternoon of Lego. During Best Buy's early Black Friday sale, you can grab some colorful Sonic the Hedgehog, Home Alone, and Star Wars sets that you can keep in storage until that cold or rainy afternoon when you want to engage your brain. Meanwhile, My Best Buy Plus/Total members can save 40% on a variety of Lego sets, including multiple Lego Super Mario expansions. For more Lego deals, check out our roundup of the best deals at Amazon and other retailers.
We've reached a pretty great point with laptops, as you get a surprising amount of performance and power in a compact package thanks to new chipsets and technologies. At Best Buy, you can pick up laptops that are superb for mobile gaming and running newer games with more modest settings applied, heavy-duty rigs that are ideal for video editing 4K video files, and affordable workhorses for your office tasks.

Gaming Headset deals
Whether you're looking to chat with friends in Fortnite, keep the noise around you to a minimum, or you want to punish yourself by piping sounds directly into your ears while playing a horror game, a good headset is a must.
- SteelSeries Arctis 9X for Xbox, PC, Switch, and mobile -- $100 (

If you haven't yet pulled the trigger on a TV upgrade, now is the time to do so. Best Buy is offering a huge discount on the LG A2 OLED TV, and this is a very tempting offer if you want the best picture for your Xbox Series X|S or PS5 console. There's also a gigantic 75-inch Samsung TV that you can use for your home cinema and Sony's 65-inch Bravia OLED TV is another option to consider for PS5 owners.
Headphone, earbud, and soundbar deals
Audiophiles are living in a golden age of high-quality headsets, and whether you're looking for something to wear at the gym or while relaxing on a couch listening to your favorite album, there's plenty to choose from here. Sony is always a good bet, and for anyone looking to party, there are also several deals on soundbars to check out.
- Bose 700 wireless over-the-ear headphones -- $279 ($
- JBL Xtreme 2 portable Bluetooth speaker -- $200 ($
- Samsung HW-S50B soundbar -- $150 ($

ASUS ROG Ally
You'll need to be a My Best Buy Plus or Total member to get the full $100 discount, though everyone will find the handheld on sale for $620 during Black Friday. With a gorgeous 7-inch display and AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, the ROG Ally is a great alternative to Steam Deck.
PlayStation 5 + Spider-Man 2 Bundle
This bundle gets you a standard PS5 console, a DualSense controller, and a copy of Spider-Man 2. Considering the newly released game is yet to see a meaningful discount, this is without a doubt the cheapest way to get your hands on it if you're also still in the market for a PS5.
DualSense Wireless Controller
Best Buy is discounting DualSense controllers to their lowest price of the year. This includes not just the standard white and black variants, but also colorful models such as Cobalt Blue and Cosmic Red. This is probably the lowest price we'll see for Sony's iconic controllers, so be sure to cash in on the deal.
Microsoft Elite Series 2 Core Wireless Controller
Though it doesn’t have as many customizable components as the Elite Series 2, the Elite Series 2 Core is a massive step up from the standard Xbox controller. Offering up to 40 hours of battery life, back buttons, and adjustable triggers, it's a pro controller that doesn't carry the pro price tag.
Nintendo Switch Holiday Bundle
Nintendo has released a generous holiday bundle, offering a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month Switch Online membership along with the standard console. The handheld console is just as popular today as it was in 2017--and with the launch of Tears of the Kingdom this year, it's a great time to jump on the bandwagon.
PlayStation 5 Slim Console + Modern Warfare III
Want to get your hands on the newest PlayStation console? Then consider picking up the new Modern Warfare III bundle, which gets you a slim PS5 with optical drive and a copy of MW3 for just $500. It's bound to sell out fast, but check back frequently as inventory will likely fluctuate throughout the holiday season.
