Dads and Grads sale – top picks
Macbook Pro 13.3″
It’s not often Apple devices get significant discounts, so a Macbook Pro deal is worth checking out. For the Dads and Grads sale event, you can get $150 off of the Macbook Pro 13.3″.
Best Buy’s offer drops the price to $1,150 from $1,300, which isn’t bad at all. It’s even better considering there’s a choice of silver or Space Gray color options to choose from.
The specs of the Macbook Pro 13.3″ include Apple’s M1 chip, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Of course, there is a new Macbook Pro coming this year, using Apple’s new M2 chip. But the deal model is still one of the best laptops around – and cheaper.
Samsung 65″ Class Q80A QLED 4K TV
Should you be looking for a new TV, you’d be hard-pressed to disregard Samsung. And the Dads and Grads event has the company’s impressive 65-inch Class Q80A QLED 4K (Ultra HD) TV discounted by $300.
The saving rings it a cent back under the $1,000 mark at $999 down from $1,300. It’s still not a budget pick, but the sale shifts its affordability in a positive way and makes this Tizen-based TV a decent deal.
Samsung’s Q80A is a really smart bit of kit too, offering 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10 and 10+ support, top streaming access and compatibility with Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.

Sony WF-1000XM4 True Wireless Noise Cancelling in-ear headphones,
Sony’s produced some remarkably good headsets and earphones in recent years and the WF-1000XM4 True Wireless Noise Cancelling In-Ear Headphones are a tricky foe for any in-ear rival, featuring excellent audio, water resistance, an eight-hour battery life, and Alexa built-in.
The WF-1000XM4 earphones are even better discounted, and Best Buy’s event knocks $50 off the regular price. The new cost of $230 is one of the lowest we’ve seen since last Black Friday. But we have to say one of the lowest because Amazon currently has the WF-1000XM4 at $228, $1.99 cheaper.
So while you have options on where to pick up the supreme quality headset, either offer gets you a tidy saving on this excellent model.
