Frequently asked questions

When is Memorial Day 2021?

Memorial Day is on Monday, May 31; for many people, it marks a three-day weekend.

What sales can I expect during Memorial Day weekend?

Though retailers from every category turn up for Memorial Day, the sales you’re most likely to find are from companies that sell home goods and furniture. 

Last year we saw sales from retailers large and small alike, including Walmart, Casper, and Adidas. 

Are Memorial Day deals worth buying?

For the most part, Memorial Day sales won’t be better than those you’d see over Black Friday or Cyber Monday. However, furniture, appliances, and outdoor gear will see price drops that are comparable to those found during the holiday season.

The next major sales event on the horizon is Amazon Prime Day 2021, which we expect to come sometime in June or July. It’ll be chock-full of great deals and all-time low prices.

Music (medium, Preferred: Best Buy)

If you want ad-free access to over 75 million songs on Apple Music, now is the perfect time to sign up. Best Buy is offering new subscribers a free six-month subscription.

Apple Music is one of the best streaming services available and it offers hundreds of curated playlists, radio shows, and more. You can use it to download songs for offline listening, stream music across all of your devices, and even find occasional album exclusives. Though we found Spotify to be a better music streaming service for most, Apple Music beats it in terms of user interface and radio.

If you want to take advantage of this offer, one of the longest we’ve seen from the streaming service, here’s how you can start a plan today.

Here’s how to get 6 free months of Apple Music

  1. Go to Best Buy’s website and sign up for an account with the store.
  2. Add the “Free Apple Music for six months” digital download to your cart.
  3. Go to your cart and check out.
  4. Wait for a digital code to be sent to the email address linked to your Best Buy account.

Once your trial ends, your Apple Music subscription will auto-renew for $10 a month. It’s not clear how long Best Buy’s promotion will be available.

It’s an easy and rare chance to snag an extended Apple Music trial, so don’t miss out.

  • To celebrate Memorial Day on May 31, many retailers wil be offering big deals on select TV models.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and many stores will be marking the occasion with some big deals on an assortment of tech products, including TVs. Discounted prices are already available for a variety of display models at different budgets, and we expect even better deals as we get closer to the holiday on May 31.

Spring is typically when companies start to release their latest display models, and there are many brand-new 2021 TVs in stock right now. At the same time, there’s also still plenty of 2020 stock to go around, and since brands are eager to clear shelves to make room for their newest models, many 2020 TVs are available for some of their lowest prices.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best TV deals you can snag right now as we approach Memorial Day. That said, retailers are still rolling out their specific Memorial Day promotions, so better discounts are still likely to be announced. We’ll update this page with new deals as they’re revealed.

Frequently asked questions

When is Memorial Day 2021?

Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 31. The holiday typically marks a three-day weekend, so sales are expected to begin by Saturday, May 29, if not sooner.

What deals can I expect during Memorial Day weekend?

Memorial Day usually features sales across all product categories, but the best deals are likely to be found on home goods, furniture, and select tech items.

You can find a full breakdown of all the best Memorial day deals here

Is Memorial Day a good time to buy a TV?

Memorial Day typically offers solid discounts on TVs but the deals are rarely as big as those you’d find during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

Though the end of the year remains the best time to snag a high-end TV for less money, Memorial Day does coincide nicely with the release window for new TV models. Spring is when manufacturers launch their latest displays so you can often find older stock at a solid discount. 

Buyers should also keep in mind that Amazon Prime Day 2021 is coming up soon. We expect the event to launch sometime in June or July, and it’s possible we could see even better TV deals then.

For a limited time, you can get the ad-free plan for just $1 during your first month if you sign up with an Amazon Prime or standalone Prime Video subscription.

The discount is good for new and existing Prime and Prime Video subscribers who sign up for Paramount Plus by May 16. Prime members can even use their “no-rush digital rewards balance” to pay for the add-on. Amazon Prime costs $13 a month or $119 a year. Standalone Prime Video plans are also available for $9 a month. Both Prime Video and Prime subscribers get a 30-day free trial after they sign up.

Paramount Plus subscribers get access to a variety of original programs, including a new “SpongeBob Squarepants” movie and spinoff series. There’s also a number of other original shows and movies on the way.

How to get $9 off your first month of Paramount Plus

  1. Sign up for either a standalone Prime Video or Amazon Prime membership.
  2. Go to Amazon’s Prime Video Channels page and search for “Paramount Plus.”

Buying refurbished electronics can save you a lot of money – here’s what to look for, plus 7 expert-vetted deals

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

microsoft store surface laptop tablets
Microsoft is one of the many manufacturers to offer refurbished tech at discounted prices.

It can be scary to buy refurbished items, but when you know what you’re looking for, it can be as good as buying brand new.

Refurbished items are generally returns, faulty open-box products, or brand new units with minor cosmetic flaws that have been returned to “like new” quality by the manufacturer. We’re big fans of them here at Insider Reviews – we’ve even written reviews of our personal refurb purchases from Apple and Nintendo.

Buying refurbished has its benefits. For most shoppers, the most convincing benefit is the lower cost. Depending on the item and the manufacturer, a refurbished item can cost you up to 50% less than a brand new one. Another perk is that it’s a bit more environmentally friendly: you’re essentially buying a recycled item. In the end, both refurbished and new items will ideally deliver the same user experience, likely with some differences in packaging and cosmetics, so long as you do your research before adding to the cart.

When determining a refurb’s worthiness, it comes down to two major factors to make the judgment call: who refurbished the item and who is selling it?

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

The best refurb deals available right now

When shopping refurb deals, we keep an eye out for items that are discounted compared to typical refurb pricing, which is generally much less than brand new. Therefore, original prices noted are considerably less than that of items in new condition.

Who should I trust to refurbish an item?

When it comes to buying an item refurbished, there is no source more reliable than the manufacturer. Year-round, manufacturers like Dyson, Nintendo, and Apple offer refurbished goods for considerably less money than in new condition. I, personally, bought a refurbished Dyson V6 cordless stick vacuum 3 years ago during Black Friday, and not only did the item arrive looking new, but it also still performs well despite daily use. 

Manufacturer refurbs can also come with pretty hefty warranties. Dyson, for example, provides a 6- or 12-month warranty with every order, along with expert support and the promise of genuine Dyson parts in your item.

If you’re a frequent online shopper, you’ve surely come across a few items marked as “seller-refurbished.” Our advice: outside of a few exceptions, don’t risk it. While you don’t necessarily need to limit yourself to only buying from manufacturer storefronts, buying an item refurbished by anyone other than the manufacturer is dubious. Certain special cases like Geek Squad Certified Refurbished and Amazon Renewed are worth considering, but these have less specialized support and notably shorter warranty coverage (typically, only 90 days). 

Where can I buy refurbs from?

The easiest, most reliable places to find refurbished items for sale are from the manufacturer’s storefronts. Here are a few brands that sell certified refurbs directly from their sites:

  • Acer Recertified: Laptops, tablets, PCS, displays, and more
  • Apple: iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, Macs, and more
  • Dell Refurbished: Laptops, PCs, workstations, monitors, and more
  • Dyson Outlet: Cordless stick vacuums, upright vacuums, and other home appliances
  • Jabra: Headphones, earbuds, and more
  • Kitchenaid: Stand mixers, blenders, and more countertop appliances
  • Lenovo Outlet: Laptops
  • Microsoft: Laptops, tablets, PCs, and more
  • Nintendo: Nintendo consoles, controllers, and more
  • Sony: Professional broadcast, production, corporate, and educational products

In addition to buying straight from the maker, many big-box retailers are also trustworthy sources to get refurbs from. Sellers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and Newegg have the goods, year-round. Some manufacturers even have storefronts elsewhere, like the Jabra and Dyson storefronts on eBay. 

We also highly recommend making the purchase with a credit card, no matter where you’re buying it from — there are often routes to getting extended purchase protection. Depending on your card, you can get up to a year of additional coverage on items that come with a manufacturer’s warranty.

What items are usually good to buy refurbished?

Tech dominates the refurb market, but if you keep a lookout, you can often find small home appliances reliably refurbished. Vacuums (both cordless and upright), fans, heaters, stand mixers, blenders, and the like are pretty dependable refurbished, and they arrive in like-new condition.

Laptops, computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and accessories are typical to find refurbished, and they’re often worth considering. Check out our buying guides to find the best option for you.

What refurbs should I avoid?

As mentioned above, don’t bother with refurbs done by anyone who isn’t the manufacturer. The warranties never last as long, it doesn’t guarantee the use of genuine parts, and the product support you receive will never be as good — if you get any at all. 

Much older generation tech is also not worth buying refurbished. It’s 2020: buying a refurbished iPhone 7 is a moot investment in an item nearing obsoletion.

Finally, don’t bother with anything that can’t have its battery replaced, like truly wireless earbuds and headphones. It’s a mixed bag getting these in any condition other than new; you’ll never know the battery’s remaining lifespan. With tech like tablets, smartphones, and computers, you can always bring them into a store for a battery replacement.

The best deals on Xbox consoles, controllers, and games right now – including $27 off ‘Titanfall 2’

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S
Microsoft’s latest Xbox consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

  • Microsoft‘s newest consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, are still super popular and hard to find in stores.
  • Though consoles are hard to find, you can often find discounts on accessories and games.
  • Below, we’ve compiled the best deals on Xbox consoles, games, accessories, and subscriptions.

Deals on Xbox consoles have been few and far between with Microsoft’s new video game consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, in high demand.

While newly released Xbox games will continue to work on Xbox One consoles for years to come, Microsoft has discontinued its older models in favor of the $500 Series X and $300 Series S.

The good news is that new Xbox games will continue to work on both the new Series S|X and older Xbox Ones, and gamers who already have a collection of Xbox One games can bring their collection to the next-gen consoles. Controllers designed for Xbox One will work with Xbox Series S|X consoles too.

We’ve collected the best deals on Xbox consoles, games, subscriptions, and accessories below. These should come in handy whether you’re an Xbox One owner looking forward to the Series X, looking for games to add to your Series S|X library, or picking up your first video game console.

Here are the best Xbox deals for May 2021:

Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S
Microsoft Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.

Due to high demand, stock for all Xbox consoles remains low at many retailers, especially for the $500 Xbox Series X. Xbox One consoles may still be available at some retailers, but we recommend buying a refurbished Xbox One or the $300 Xbox Series S rather than investing extra money in aging hardware.

Xbox consoles are capable media devices too, with robust support for streaming apps, 4K resolution, and a digital storefront for movies and shows. Keep in mind that the Xbox Series S doesn’t have a disc-drive, so if you want Blu-Ray disc playback, you’ll have to opt for the Series X or an Xbox One.

Best deals on Xbox games

Titanfall 2

There are thousands of games available for Xbox, and they’re all designed to work across the Xbox Series S|X and Xbox One family of devices thanks to a feature called smart delivery.

Digital games are available through the Microsoft Store, which offers sales on a regular basis. Whether you purchase a digital or physical copy of an Xbox One game, you can still use it on an Xbox Series X if you choose to upgrade.

Below, we’ve selected some of the best games on sale right now.

Best Xbox controller deals

The Xbox controller has become the standard gaming thanks to its compatibility with Windows, Android, and Apple devices. Newer versions of the Xbox controller support Bluetooth, making it easy to connect to your computer or phone.

The standard Xbox controller uses AA batteries, but Microsoft has released a $25 rechargeable battery pack that allows you to charge the newest Xbox controllers via USB-C. Xbox controllers are universal, so they’ll work whether they’re connected to the Xbox Series S|X or the Xbox One, and you won’t have to buy new ones if you upgrade to a next-gen console.

Microsoft also makes a premium Xbox One gamepad, the $180 Xbox Elite controller. The Elite series offers some notable improvements, like a rechargeable battery with 40 hours of playtime, four rear paddle buttons for extra control, customizable thumbsticks, and a rubber grip.

Best Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass deals

Game Pass Ultimate

Xbox Live Gold is a subscription service that’s required for online play with nearly all Xbox One games. The subscription also offers free games each month that remain available as long as the Xbox Live Gold subscription is active.

If you’re already an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, buying a discounted membership will add time to the length of your current subscription.

Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass is a subscription gaming service that lets you download hundreds of games to your Xbox One or Windows PC. The service costs $5 a month on PC or $10 a month on Xbox One. New Game Pass subscribers will only pay $1 for their first month thanks to an ongoing promotion.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes an Xbox Live Gold subscription and will give you access to Game Pass on both PC, Xbox, and Android devices for a regular price of $15 per month.

Frequently asked questions

When does spring start?

This year spring started on March 20 and will end on June 20. 

What should I buy during spring?

In the spirit of springing forward and spring cleaning, typically around this time of year, you can find the most sales for apparel, home goods, outdoor furniture, grills, outdoor gear, and cleaning supplies.

Additionally, shoppers should be on the hunt for discounted gifts to give for Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day during spring. 

Is this a better time to shop than Black Friday?

There isn’t much that can beat Black Friday pricing, and spring sales are no exception. Chances are you’ll find a better deal on things like mattresses, tech, and outdoor gear in November.

However, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are still months away, and there are still exceptional deals to be found.
