The first items in the sale are last year's iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus, with savings of up to $150 for qualified activation for Verizon or Sprint customers. Savings are deducted off the full price of the iPhone and reflected in reduced monthly payments over the life of the device, including as low as $18.75/month for 24 months (and $150 down payment) for an iPhone X on Sprint.

Best Buy also has four models of the mid 2018 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar discounted by up to $200, but these prices are beaten by B&H Photo. We've collected each model on sale at Best Buy, along with B&H Photo's discount price, in the list below.
