Amazon Prime Day is undoubtedly the main sales event this week, but it’s far from the only sale you can shop right now. The size and popularity of Prime Day has driven Amazon’s biggest competitors to launch their own competing sales at the same time, and Best Buy is always one of the biggest players in the anti-Prime Day space. Best Buy’s major sale runs through the end of the day. It’s called “The Bigger Deal” savings event–which feels like a playful jab at Walmart’s “Deals for Days” and Target’s “Deal Days” sales.
Best Buy’s The Bigger Deal savings event is a series of 24-hour flash deals that end at 10 PM PT / 1 AM ET each night through June 22 (today is the last day). Tuesday’s main deals focus on home entertainment, including 4K TVs and soundbars. The 4K TV deals are especially notable because two of them are optimized for PS5 and Xbox Series X thanks to HDMI 2.1. We’ve rounded up the best flash deals in Best Buy’s The Bigger Deal savings event.
LG NanoCell 80 Series 75″ 4K Smart webOS TV
$1,000 (was $1,300)
The LG NanoCell 80 Series is a great option for Xbox Series X and PS5 owners, as two of its four HDMI ports are HDMI 2.1. This 75-inch model is on sale for $300 off, making it a great budget option that offers stellar 4K gaming performance with its 60Hz refresh rate and TruMotion 120 technology. As a webOS smart TV, it has Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in, but it also supports Apple HomeKit.
Vizio 55″ OLED 4K SmartCast TV
$1,000 (was $1,300)
This Vizio TV is another excellent option for gaming on the new consoles. It has HDMI 2.1 inputs as well as a dedicated engine for gaming that boasts a 120Hz refresh rate and auto low latency. Though it has a smaller display than the LG option shown above, the quality is better due to its OLED screen. You can’t go wrong with either TV. If you want more real estate, go for the LG. If you want the best overall picture, the Vizio is the better option.
Hisense 70″ 4K Smart Android TV
$630 (was $700)
This is actually a repeat deal from earlier in the sale, but if you missed out the first time, you can grab this 70-inch 4K smart Android TV for only $630. The Hisense A6G is equipped wit Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 and features an auto low latency mode for gaming. While it doesn’t have HDMI 2.1, it’s still a solid budget 4K TV with Chromecast built-in. You can also get the 60-inch model for $380.
Samsung 7.1-Channel Soundbar with Rear Kit
$380 (was $500)
Soundbars can greatly enhance the audio quality of your home entertainment experience. Best Buy is knocking $120 off the price of this stellar kit from Samsung. It comes with a soundbar, subwoofer, and two rear speakers to provide immersive 3D audio with Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Virtual: X built-in. This set is equipped with Samsung’s acoustic beam tech for panoramic sound that follows the action on screen. It also has a dedicated game mode for when you’re playing instead of watching.
