New year, new you, new tech. Now that the holiday shopping season has officially wrapped up, it's time to treat yourself to anything left on your wish list. Best Buy is ringing in 2022 with a bunch of great offers on top tech across the store. You can check out the entire selection of deals here:
With so many items on sale, finding the best deals can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. That's why we've gone through Best Buy's New Year's sale and rounded up a list of our favorites. Take a look below, and note that some of these are also available at Amazon and elsewhere.
These are currently the greatest noise-canceling earbuds you can get from Bose and were a CNET Editors' Choice (in December 2020). We found them to deliver top-notch noise cancellation and better overall sound quality than the AirPods Pro. They're still available at their Black Friday price of $199 -- a savings of $80.
Smart thermostats are incredibly useful and can help save you money on your heating and cooling bill. Earlier this year, Google announced some stylish new Nest Thermostats, and right now they're 23% off. They come in silver, dark gray and rose gold, so you can pick the one that matches your home the best.
Getting it set up doesn't require much experience. However, if you aren't comfortable turning off the power and replacing your existing thermostat, you'll want to contact a professional to install it. Once you set it up, you can adjust the temperature from anywhere and program it.
Take one of our favorite media streamers and throw in a pair of headphones that allow for private listening (great for late night binging sessions), and that's the Roku Streaming Stick 4K Headphone Edition. It's got excellent 4K and HDR support, and access to every major streaming service.
Looking for a tablet, but not an Apple person? This tablet features a large 12-inch display with 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution that provides sharp images for streaming movies and games, and makes projects for work or play easy.

This tablet comes with an S Pen for note-taking or sketching.
Manage everything from your schedule to your smart home with this all-new edition of the Echo Show 5 with Alexa. You can control compatible devices like cameras, lights and more using your voice. It also allows you to set alarms and timers, check your calendar and the news, stream music and TV, make video calls and more. The smart display can double as a digital frame as well.
Note that for $5 you can add on a Blink Mini indoor security camera, just click the link on the right side of the listing to unlock the bundle.
Air fryers have been all the rage this past year, and there's a good reason why. This midsize model can reach temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in minutes, cooking food in a fraction of the time of a conventional oven or deep fryer. And the removable, dishwasher-safe basket and tray make cleanup a breeze as well.
