While many major retailers like Walmart, GameStop, and Ebay pulled out all the stops to compete against Amazon during Prime Day 2019, Best Buy was relatively quiet, aside from a 48-hour flash sale that didn’t offer much in the way of gaming deals. Rather than attempting to break through all the Prime Day noise, Best Buy launched its sitewide Black Friday in July sale a couple weeks later, and early access is currently available for My Best Buy members. That early access period ends after July 25.
At the most basic level, My Best Buy membership is free, and all you have to do is create an account to start shopping the sale. Being a My Best Buy member gets you 5% back in rewards on qualifying purchases, free shipping on all $35+ orders, and more, so it’s not a bad idea to sign up.
In terms of gaming deals, you’ll find PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and even some PC games marked down. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for PS4 and Xbox One is on sale for $30, and a free metal case is included. Other notable game deals include Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle (Switch) for $20, Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition (PS4, Xbox One) for $20, and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (PS4) for $15. On the hardware side, you’ll find an Xbox One console deal that throws in an extra wireless controller and copy of Halo 5: Guardians for free. You can also save $30 on a bundle of two DualShock 4 controllers, and if you’re into streaming, you can get a Logitech webcam and Yeti Blue microphone for $60 off.
