Folks, it's been quite a year (make that 15 months!). But as we emerge into the sunlight — quite literally, with summer's official launch in just a few days — we have a lot of catching up to do. Surf, sand, pool, play — sure. But also shopping. This weekend brings some of the best deals of the season. Ready to upgrade and save big on the latest and greatest in tech? You've come to the right place. 

Best Buy has just dropped a motherlode of deep discounts as part of the retailer's Bigger Deal Savings Event on just about everything — from 4K TVs and wireless headphones to smart-home gear and kitchen appliances. The savings are massive this weekend, so treat yourself and scoop up what you need (or just really, really want) before it sells out. 

We rounded up the top offerings at Best Buy's Bigger Deal Savings Event, with prices starting at just $10. Scroll and shop below:

On sale for $900 (down from $1,150), this Sony 65-inch Class X80J Series LED 4K Ultra HD Smart Google TV is the latest from this iconic manufacturer. Its massive 65-inch 4K display delivers images you can practically reach out and touch. Sony’s state-of-the-art Processor X1 powers this beauty for true-to-life visuals, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure colors stay bright and black levels stay, well, black.

"This is an excellent product. We upgraded our TV to this Sony," raved a five-star Best Buy reviewer. "The picture is great. Our last TV was a 65-inch, so side-by-side this TV is a definite upgrade. The sound system is great and the Smart TV process is very responsive to our wireless internet connection. The TV connected to my phone and the voice recognition was simple to set up...."

While some streaming TVs come with Fire TV or Roku built-in, this Sony 65-inch 4K stunner features Google TV. This means you’ll have instant access to popular streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, YouTube, Prime Video and more, but you’ll also get a wide range of gaming apps like NBA Jam, Fortnite and Crossy Road — you won't get that with Fire TV or Roku. Just sync a wireless gaming controller via Bluetooth and you’re all set to get your game on.

It's easy to get distracted by quirky design flourishes and exotic add-ons, but at the end of the day, earbud shoppers are looking for excellent audio, first and foremost. Second-most, they want them at a great price. Well, get ready to check both boxes: These Samsung Galaxy Buds+ — on sale for $100, or $50 off, at Best Buy — offer crisp, clear sound and punchy bass. The battery life is amazing: You'll get 11 hours per charge, plus an additional 11 hours with the included wireless charging case. That's nearly a full day of use! In a pinch? An hour of playback requires just a three-minute quick boost. You'll love this feature when you're about to go for a run and your buds are at zero.

Calls sound crystal-clear thanks to three microphones that reduce ambient background noise even if you’re in a busy location. "Good sound quality and noise cancelation can silence a barking dog," shared a Best Buy fan. Woof!

Been hankering to expand your computer arsenal with a tablet without going into hock? Here's the deal you've been waiting for. On sale for $180 (was $230), the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 weighs just over a pound and features 32GB of storage (expandable up to 1TB via microSD card). That's got it all over Apple’s entry level tablet, which isn’t expandable. And unlike the iPad, the Tab A7’s 10.4-inch display has a full HD widescreen for immersive viewing.

Also out-Apple-ing Apple? The A7's camera set is better than the one that comes with the iPad. It has an eight-megapixel selfie cam with a five-megapixel rear shooter on the front for video calls. "Mostly use for mobile gaming. Tried to play PS4 remote play, and it worked," reported a satisfied gamer. "Sound is great and build quality is better than iPad. Speed is seamless."

Score the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 in gray and gold.

Just because it's fun-in-the-sun season doesn't mean you won't need to keep yourself flush with new gaming challenges. We've found a great one. Watch Dogs: Legion for Xbox One (also compatible with Xbox Series X) is now on sale for nearly 70 percent off — down from $60 to just $20. This action/adventure game and third installment in the franchise from Ubisoft takes place in a near future where London is on the verge of collapse. All-seeing surveillance state and private military are in control, while the fate of the city is in the hands of DedSec, a hacker group that wants to fight back for freedom. It’s as fun as it sounds, and an absolute steal at this price.

"This game is very fun to play," raved a happy gamer. "The setting is amazing and the attention to detail makes it better.... I bought this for my grandson and he absolutely loved the story so much, he accidentally stayed up all night long playing the game. He said the storyline is very interesting and fun to complete. He also says he likes the fact you get to choose strangers off the streets to work on your team. He has always loved technology so he absolutely loves this game and this view of what the future might be like."

It's 2021 — shouldn't you be asking a bit more from your alarm clock? Elevate the mundane with the Lenovo Smart Clock. It's powered with Google Assistant for seamless syncing to a smartphone. It can rouse you with your favorite tunes, the weather, calendar reminders and that podcast you love. 

"Replaced my old alarm clock and a Google mini speaker with one device," shared a savvy Best Buy shopper. "...I tell it good night when I am ready for bed and it turns off my lights, tells me the weather tomorrow and what is on my calendar the next day just like a Google mini can do. Plus the clock face can show the current temperature along with the time."

Really, who couldn’t use all the help they can get rousing themselves from bed in the morning? So why not let the Lenovo Smart Clock do it in digital style, and for just $50 (down from $80) at Best Buy?

On sale for $200 (was $260), the Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV761 is designed to tackle all sorts of household surfaces, unlike other devices that just suck up dirt and grime and ‘get stuck’ against a wall or under furniture. We consider it the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning.

This smart little guy uses a navigation system to map your home’s floor landscape, so it doesn’t bump into walls, scratch up furniture or plummet down stairs. With up to 90 minutes of battery life per charge, it can sweep up your hardwood floors and then switch to carpets and tiles at a moment’s notice, plus it can also be controlled and scheduled via its smartphone app or Alexa.

"This vacuum is amazing," raved a savvy Best Buy shopper. "It picks up dirt and dust you never even knew you had ! It takes awhile to clean the whole house but doesn’t bother me since I can let it run and do whatever else I need to do! I would buy it again and I've already recommended it to people!"

Here you go: The sleek, incredibly thin Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is actually more than just a laptop. It's on sale for $429, or $200 off at Best Buy.

It has a brilliant 13.5-inch HD touchscreen display (at 2256 x 1504 resolution) and flexible 360-degree hinge (hence the name 'Spin'), so it can rotate to any angle for use as a tablet. This Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is a true workhorse, with a Dual-Core Intel i5-10210U, 8GB of memory and 128GB of on-board storage. It even features two USB-C and single USB-A ports and a stalwart 10-hour battery life.

"This Chromebook is easily one of the best premium Chromebooks at a budget price you can buy," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "It boots within seconds, operates apps smoothly and efficiently, and the touchscreen is very responsive. I've ran multiple tabs with multiple things going on simultaneously to test the processing power, and I have yet to make this machine lag..."

How 'bout some home-cooking convenience? On sale for $50 (was $100), the Insignia Analog Air Fryer lets you fry, roast or bake your favorite foods at temperatures up to 400 degrees — whip up anything from chicken to veggies to breaded tilapia!

The large five-quart basket can hold up to five servings, so it's great for having friends over for hangouts. Its timer features automatic shutoff, so you'll never have to stress about burning your food or blowing up your electric bill. This air fryer also has a sleek stainless steel finish with an easy-to-navigate dial display, while its basket and pan are dishwasher-safe, so fewer dirty dishes to worry about.

We're not alone in our admiration. "This air fryer is easy to use," reported a satisfied Best Buy shopper. "Nice and simple so that I can teach my kids how to use it for little items. Great size. I have a family of five and it gets the job done. So far I have cooked things like bacon, broccoli, steak, chicken, salmon, potatoes, zucchini fries and reheated pizza, fries and more! I would recommend it!"
