If you still have some last-minute shopping left to do, Best Buy may be one of your best options at this point so you can still score a great deal. Right now the retailer is promoting a slew of e-gift card options that are available immediately. We've highlighted a few below. Additionally, a "Last-Second" savings event is happening, too, focusing on one-hour turnarounds on curbside or in-store pickup. The sale prices will last until Dec. 24 at 9:59 p.m. PT (12:59 a.m. ET), however, if you want your purchase today, Dec. 24, please be aware of the following:

  • Curbside pickup: Order by 5 p.m. to pick up by 7 p.m. if you want to get it today.
  • Same-day delivery: Order by noon if you want to get it by 9 p.m. today.
  • Store hours: Stores will close at 7 p.m. on Dec. 24 and will be closed on Dec. 25. 

If you need to shop today, it is best to be an early bird. You can browse the entire sale event below.

Gift card deals

If you're considering a gift card, you can still score a good deal right now. Check out a few of our favorites below:


Give your loved one the gift of a meal (or several) delivered right to their door. Rather than giving a restaurant card, Doordash allows a great deal of choice, no matter what they're craving. 

You can also grab their $50 gift card for Doordash for just $42.50.


While you'll be paying full price for your gift cards, any purchase will come with some great bonuses, including:

  • Free Apple Music for six months
  • Free Apple News Plus for six months
  • Free Apple TV Plus for three months

These free items are for new subscribers only, but that is still a hefty amount of add-ons. Offer is available on all Apple gift cards at Best Buy, from $200 down to $15.

Google Play

Like Apple, this card is being offered at its regular price, but when you purchase a $50 or $100 gift card for Google Play, you'll get three months of YouTube Premium for free.

If you've still got some final names to check off your gift list, don't miss out. From headphones to air fryers, small beverage coolers to smart home accessories, this sale at Best Buy has something for everyone. It's worth noting that not all items will be available in all locations, so you'll want to check local inventory on the pages for the products of interest to see if you can select for in-store or curbside pickup. Some of the discounts here are the same ones we've been seeing since early in November and others are recent price drops just for this.

With the arrival of Beats new Fit Pro earbuds, I assumed we'd see some nice discounts on the earlier and less feature-rich Beats Studio Buds, which list for $150, or only $50 less than the new $200 Beats Fit Pro. I predicted we might see their price dip to $100 and sure enough, that's what their price is now (and a new low).

The Beats Studio Buds look a lot like the rumored stemless AirPods that people were talking about but never materialized -- as AirPods anyway. Geared toward both iOS and Android users, they're missing a few key features on the Apple side of things (there's no H1 or W1 chip), but they're small, lightweight earbuds that are comfortable to wear and offer good sound. They fit most ears securely, including mine -- I run with them without a problem -- but others may find a better fit with the Beats Fit Pro and their integrated wing tips.

If you're looking to take your health a bit more seriously in 2022 or know someone else who may be doing that, the Fitbit Charge 5 is a great companion to keep them on track. It has health monitoring, sleep tracking and recently added EKG functionality. Grab one now.


If you don't already have an air fryer, Black Friday is a great time to pick one up. This Chefman 8-quart air fryer has a large capacity, multiple cooking presets and more. It's easy to clean and cooks great food, so what are you waiting for?


The Ninja coffee system will let you select from classic, rich, over ice, or specialty grounds or coffee pods (and yes, it is compatible with K-cups) to create coffeehouse-style drinks. It also has a built-in, foldaway frother for milk or milk alternatives. Pieces of the machines are removable and dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning, and there's an independent hot water system with hot and boil temperature settings to make instant soup, oatmeal and cocoa.

The Sony WH-XB910Ns are a great, budget-friendly option for noise-canceling headphones. They boast up to 30 hours of battery life and can support two Bluetooth connections simultaneously for almost effortless switching between devices. They were named one of our favorite pairs of Sony headphones from this year.


The Acer Chromebook is a great blend of durable, portable and accessible. It boasts 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, so it's ideal for browsing and online work, but not too much more than that. And with 15 hours of battery life and weighing only 0.74 pounds. It's great for getting some work done on the road.
