With just two days to go until Dec. 25, time is running out to get your shopping done. There’s quite a few good deals at Best Buy today — and many of them are still eligible for delivery ahead of Christmas — including Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 for $599. It’s an entry-level configuration — equipped with an Intel Core i3, 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM — but the $360 discount is considerable, and this machine will do the trick for basic entertainment and productivity tasks.
There’s also a 58-inch LED 4K Roku TV for $330. That’s a $170 discount on a big Westinghouse set equipped with our favorite smart TV operating system, Roku, which offers speed, simplicity and gargantuan array of apps. (Disclaimer: The Westinghouse consumer brand is owned and licensed by CBS, the owner of CNET.)
Also still in stock and on sale at Best Buy: The new 10.2-inch iPad, the rarely discounted iPad Air, and the Fitbit Versa 2 and Versa 2 Special Edition. You can get a 32-inch RCA LED HDTV for $90 — a respectable choice for a secondary set or one for the kids. And Best Buy has now caught up with Walmart, offering the Xbox One S bundled with Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition at its all-time low price, $199.
We’ve collected all of the best deals at Best Buy below. In order to see some of the sale prices, you’ll need to enroll in the retailer’s My Best Buy rewards program — but it’s free for the basic tier.

Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart are all bundling the Xbox One S with the deluxe edition of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for $20 0 — basically the Black Friday low. If you’re a Star Wars fan, this is the bundle to get — Fallen Order got enthusiastic reviews, and the deluxe edition adds bonus skins for the BD-1 and Stinger Mantis as well as a digital art book and 90 minutes of behind the scenes footage from the making of the game. Oh, and the bundle also includes a free month of Xbox Live Gold.
Microsoft’s fresh take on the tablet-plus-keyboard concept, the Surface Pro X combines the feel of a 13-inch laptop PC with the DNA of a smartphone. Best Buy’s configuration includes Microsoft’s SQ1 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity, and a keyboard and stylus.
Starlink might be the best Star Fox game in decades, and this game-and-interactive-model combo lists at $60. Best Buy has now discounted it to $8 — but will just throw it in when you purchase the V2 version of the Switch.
Best Buy’s iPhone 11 deal is pretty darn good if you’re looking to upgrade from a recent phone like the iPhone X, XR or XS. The retailer is offering up to $500 off — and in some cases more than $500 off — if you’re trading in one of those devices in good, working condition and buying an iPhone 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max. You’ll need to be on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint and purchase the new device on your carrier’s installment plan, with the total discount varying based on the phone you’re trading in and the carrier you’re using.
Older phones will get a discount, but it won’t be as substantial as a recent iPhone. Regardless, you’ll need to go into a physical Best Buy store to get the deal.
The AirPods with the regular charging case are again available for a (slightly) cheaper price. Regularly priced at $160, this has become the de facto discount for the ubiquitous earbuds.
This “cocktail table” features 12 classic games including Street Fighter II (and a number of spin-offs), Commando and Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Now on sale for $50 off. (Note: You can order it now, but it’s not expected to ship until early January.)

Yes, it’s expensive, but the i7 Plus is Roomba’s most ambitious robot vacuum ever. It doesn’t just clean floors on its own, it empties itself too. In fact, the robot will deal with the dirt it collects entirely by itself, for weeks. And once the robot maps individual rooms, you can label them with common names and use Alexa and Google Assistant to command the i7 Plus with natural language. “Hey Google, clean the living room.”
