Not to be outdone by Amazon, Best Buy is holding its own summer sale.
Amazon recently held a Prime Day event, which, to put it mildly, was a huge success and had everyone wondering if Amazon had managed to topple Black Friday, a massive shopping sale extravaganza that happens every year after Thanksgiving in the US. Now, Best Buy wants in on the action, apparently, as it just opened up its "Black Friday in July" sale. Here's what you need to know, including what's on sale.
- Amazon's Blue Apron-like 'Meal Kits' are already here, apparently
- Amazon Anytime could be the shopping giant's new messaging app
- Amazon Echo 2 might be coming soon with a totally different look
