Here’s what other retailers are doing for Black Friday in July:

The Best Buy Black Friday in July sale offers deals on electronics and home items (like small appliances).

At only eight pages long, the Black Friday in July sale ad for Best Buy is thinner than, say, JCPenney, but it packs a punch. Expect to see deals on most electronics with a focus on back-to-school items like laptops, earbuds, and more.

Deals on small appliances for the kitchen will crop up, but unless you’re saving at least 50%, wait until the fall and buy during actual Black Friday.

In 2021, Best Buy Black Friday in July ran for three days — July 22 – 25.

Keep a lookout around the end of the month for the Best Buy Black Friday in July sale. This is a week or two later than other retailers (Macy’s, JCPenney) offer their Black Friday in July deals.

Best Buy also runs a 4th of July sale earlier in the month, which coincides more closely with competitor sales. Expect Best Buy deals during the bulk of July!

Get a $10 Best Buy gift card when you purchase a $100 Apple gift card.

This gift card deal in 2021 made it so you could essentially get your Apple purchase for an additional $10 off.

The best way to use this deal if we see it again this year is to get the Apple gift card if you plan to buy an Apple product during the Best Buy Black Friday in July sale. Use the gift card on your Apple purchase during the sale (money you’d be spending anyway if you’re shopping Apple), then put the $10 Best Buy gift card toward a different purchase.

Use free store pickup for BestBuy.com orders unless you’re spending $35 or more.

While you can absolutely access the Best Buy Black Friday in July sale at BestBuy.com or in-store, please, oh please, don’t pay for shipping! Choose in-store or curbside pickup instead because it’s free.

If you’re buying electronics, which you probably are at Best Buy, you’ll reach $35 quickly, so it’s not a concern. But for smaller purchases, keep store pickup in mind!

Plan to save a couple-hundred dollars on big names like Apple.

This is true because of overall markdowns being higher, but also because of specific deals we saw in 2021. (Read on for those details.)

Here are the categories of savings we saw in 2021. Note that 35% off Apple is pretty amazing as Apple doesn’t typically offer big sales.

  • Up to $500 off Apple (35% off)
  • Up to $300 off floorcare
  • Up to $180 off headphones
  • Up to $150 off other laptop brands (like Chromebook)
  • Up to $150 off TVs
  • Up to $100 off streaming projectors
  • Up to $75 off small kitchen appliances like Nespresso makers, air fryers and more
  • Up to $50 off Ring
  • Up to $50 off sound bars and accessories

Keep tabs on Best Buy student deals during Black Friday in July.

If you’re in the market for electronics, and you’re a student, bookmark Best Buy’s student deals page. Expect to see 5 – 10% off items when you become a My Best Buy member. Just tell the cashier to look up your account and apply any rewards to activate the student discount.
