Amazon's so-called Prime Early Access event just went live, but there's a rival Best Buy sale that really shouldn't be missed if you're on the hunt for great tech deals. 

Some of the included offers are the best deals that you can expect to see until Black Friday hits, and the best part is that, unlike Amazon's sale, you don't need to be any kind of paying member to save some serious cash. Keep reading to find a selection of our favorite products that are included in the sale, or check the link below to see absolutely everything that Best Buy's Flash Sale has on offer. 

Keep in mind that the Best Buy deals are only good until October 12th at 11:59 pm CST. When you're checking out the great prices, also look out for other goodies that may be included with the purchase. A nice pair of wireless headphones, for instance, may come with a free subscription to a music streaming service, while the purchase of a laptop may include free antivirus or customer support. These extras can add a lot of value to a deal! 

Believe it or not, Best Buy isn't the only retailer attempting to compete with Amazon's sale this week. On Monday, Walmart launched their own three-day sitewide sale by unveiling a bounty of tempting offers, and Target just kicked off their Deal Days event. All of this competition spells good news for you, since these retailers are willing to drop prices dramatically in order to earn your business. You're already in the driver's seat, so why wait until Black Friday to get your holiday shopping done? Keep reading for a list of some of the best tech deals available at Best Buy now.
