You can also save on different formats and storage configurations of the 2018 iPad Pro.

But you don't have to be a member of My Best Buy to take advantage of a number of large sales that we would expect later in the month, such as the highly discounted Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with a Type Cover at no extra cost. This is a good omen if you don't want to wait, but maybe it's even better for those who want to wait, because even better deals may come in a few weeks.

Most of these deals end at 12:11 AM ET on Monday, November 11. Maybe they kick back as we get closer to Black Friday. Until then, here are the best pre-Black Friday deals that you can now get at Best Buy.

Only today (November 7) the seventh generation iPad (32 GB, pictured above) starts at $ 249.99 for My Best Buy members. (Don't forget to log in; the price decrease will take effect at checkout.) This is currently the best price for this model. (Target offers the same deal on Black Friday.) If you want more storage, the 128 GB model currently costs $ 329.99 (the usual price of the $ 32 model), giving it a $ 100 discount. Whichever you want, both offer upgrades making them better choices than the previous generation of iPads, such as a Smart Connector port, a larger screen and an extra gigabyte of RAM, although the processor is the same.

The Surface Pro 7 (Intel Core i3, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage, with black Type Cover) is $ 599. This silver model usually costs $ 749 for the tablet alone, plus another $ 129 for the Type Cover. According to Tom Warren's assessment, you can expect some small but welcome improvements here, such as a USB-C charging port and an increase in Intel & # 39; s 10th generation processors across the board (including in this discounted model).

Another exclusive deal for My Best Buy members includes a substantial discount on the iPad Pro. The 11-inch iPad Pro with 64 GB storage is $ 649.99 ($ 150 discount), which corresponds to the best price ever. The 12.9-inch entry-level model with 64 GB of storage is $ 849.99, also a $ 150 discount. In fact, every storage or format configuration of the iPad Pro at Best Buy corresponds to the best deals we've seen, so take a look.

Apple & # 39; s 13-inch MacBook Pro is $ 200 off from its usual price, making the basic configuration (with the Touch Bar, a quad-core, 8th generation Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage) $ 1,099. That's the best price we've seen and you can save $ 200 on the model with improved storage. The 256 GB model costs $ 1,299 instead of $ 1,499.

Ring & # 39; s Video Doorbell Pro (which requires door wiring) and the Chime Pro are bundled for $ 179.99and Best Buy includes a free Amazon Echo Show 5 display. This doorbell usually sells for more than $ 200 alone, so this is a big discount if you hope to find each of these items for sale during the holidays.

The HomePod smart speaker from Apple costs $ 199.99, compared to the typical price of $ 249.99. This corresponds to the lowest price we've seen, so it's possible that it drops even lower for Black Friday or Cyber ​​Monday. But if you've waited for it to return to this price, Best Buy has both the black and white color options that are now available.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is cheaper than ever. The 40 mm version costs $ 299 (a $ 30 discount that seems exclusive to Best Buy for the time being). For the larger size of 44 mm you pay $ 329, a decrease of $ 379. That's a discount of $ 50, but you can find this price on Amazon.

Every storage and color configuration of the The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Android tablet receives a $ 100 discount, and you will receive a free gift voucher of $ 50 with your purchase. Samsung makes this tablet in gray, blue or pink, and you can get it with 128 GB or 256 GB storage. Unlike the Surface Pro 7 and the iPad Pro, it contains a stylus in the box. According to Dan Seifert's assessment, this model has a beautiful display and performs admirably. You may find the widescreen ratio a bit uncomfortable for practical work.

The Sony WH-1000X M3 over-ear, noise-canceling wireless headset costs $ 279.99 (usually $ 349.99). These are one of the best wireless headphones you can buy, and they stand out from the competition with their masterful balance between comfort, sound quality and excellent noise reduction. This price corresponds to the lowest we've seen, and it may fall more as we get closer to Black Friday, but you get a lot for your money whether you wait or not.

Beats Studio 3 wireless headphones with noise reduction costs $ 199.99 (usually $ 349.99). This is the best price we have seen and the lowest currently available for a new set of these tins. Just like the Sonys above, they have active noise cancellation, but they have the W1 wireless chip from Apple for fast, easy connection to other Apple devices such as your iPhone, iPad or macOS computer. However, they charge via Micro USB, which is perhaps their most notable error compared to other flagship headphones.

The pre-built HP Omen Obelisk desktop PC is $ 899.99, down from $ 1,249. In the case you will find Intel's i7-9700 CPU, 16 GB RAM, the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, a 1 TB hard drive and a 256 GB SSD. The modified micro ATX housing supports other motherboards if you decide to upgrade later, and of course you can exchange the parts as you wish. But as it looks now, this is a great value for all these parts that are thrown into a well-built housing.

Best Buy & # 39; s offers for gaming laptops are attractive across the board, but the 15.6-inch MSI GS65 laptop stands out from the crowd. It is $ 1,399.99 (reduced from $ 1,899) and features a 240Hz 1080p screen, Intel's i7-9750H processor, 32 GB RAM, NVIDIA & RTX 2060 GPU, 512 GB PCIe storage and a Thunderbolt port, among other functions. Simply put, this is a fantastic deal that is worth following if you are looking for a laptop that can surpass everything in this price range.

The 17.3-inch G7 gaming laptop from Dell costs $ 1,099.99 (usually $ 1,499), and it has a lot in common with the MSI machine above. It has the same processor, graphics card, storage configuration and Thunderbolt port. However, it is much heavier, it has half the amount of RAM and the screen is locked at 60Hz. If you don't care about those features, you can save $ 300 by buying this model.

The classic wired G502 Hero mouse from Logitech costs $ 34.99 (usually around $ 50 at different stores). There is a more expensive wireless version, but if you want an ergonomic mouse with many buttons and weights for a customized feel, this is a reliable option.
