Best Buy joins the Apple Watch party, will begin selling the device next week

Despite reports that Apple Watch sales have been lukewarm, Apple CEO Tim Cook emphatically dismissed such claims during the company’s earnings conference call last week. Not only have Apple Watch sales exceeded Apple’s internal projections, but early sales of the device have already surpassed early iPhone and iPod sales.

“And we were able to do that with having only 680 points of sale,” Cook further explained.

Well, Apple Watch availability is about to change in a major way.

Best Buy finally realized it’s Black Friday in July – here are some of the best deals

Amazon recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with a huge Prime Day deals day that generated record sales. Walmart tried to ruin Amazon’s event by launching its own sales, and so did other retailers. Strangely, Best Buy wasn’t one of them.

Now, however, the company is holding a special “Black Friday in July” event this weekend, planning to offer buyers several gadgets at discounted prices. The Black Friday in July Sale takes place on July 24th and July 25th, with deals available in Best Buy’s online store. More →

One man’s tragically doomed quest to get off Best Buy’s spam email list

Dealing with spam offers from retailers is one of the more annoying components of managing email these days but for the most part you can make them go away by unsubscribing to them. Note how we said, “For the most part.” Ars Technica’s Jon Brodkin found himself on Best Buy’s official email list and he did the sensible thing most people do and tried to unsubscribe. It didn’t work. Then he tried complaining directly to Best Buy, whose representatives promised to remove him from the list. That also didn’t work. As a result, his inbox still looked like this after multiple complaints: More →

How To Save Money

New free service automatically gets you money back when items you’ve already bought go on sale

New free service automatically gets you money back when items you’ve already bought go on sale

How annoying is it when you buy something online or in a store only to find out that it went on sale a few days later? Many stores have policies that offer to refund shoppers when this happens, but by and large, consumers don’t know about these policies or don’t bother to keep track of sale prices in order to take advantage of them.

Now, however, there’s a free service that does the heavy lifting for you, promising to automatically get you a refund if there are coupons you missed or if the price on something you purchased drops after you buy it.

In short, you’re crazy if you don’t sign up for this service. More →
