Best Buy is one of several retailers offering its own competing deals event for Amazon Prime Day 2021. The aptly titled, Bigger Deal Savings Event, started on June 15 and is running through June 22, which is also the last day of Amazon’s sale. 

What makes Best Buy’s event unique is that it’s running a series of daily Flash Sales — similar to Amazon Prime Day’s Lightning Deals — with limited-time discounts on TVs, health and home products, headphones, and plenty more. Below, you’ll find a selection of our favorite Best Buy deals that you can buy right now, as well as some detailed answers to a few commonly asked questions regarding the sale.
