Black Friday Christmas Hoverboard Deals

Major retailers say no to hoverboard sales for this holiday season

Major retailers say no to hoverboard sales for this holiday season

Hoverboards, which self-balancing Segway-like scooters that don’t levitate are known as, are one of the hottest new products of the year. Going for as low as around $270 and all the way up to $2,000, hoverboards might be a hot Christmas gift for many people, assuming they’ll be able to find one in stores.

Walmart, Best Buy, Target, RadioShack and others aren’t likely to sell the popular devices just yet, so don’t expect any hot Black Friday deals on hoverboards from them just yet. More →

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.

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 →
