Hot on the heels of their latest promo video, or perhaps in conjunction with the new video, Samsung has expanded availability of the Samsung Gear VR headset. Best Buy is now listing the device as available for order on their web site for a price of $199.99. That is the same price that you will find it for on the Samsung site or through AT&T. With free expedited shipping, buyers could have the device in their hands, or strapped to their head, by this weekend. That does assume they already own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, or plan to get one in the next couple days, since that is currently the only device that the Gear VR is compatible with.
The expansion to Best Buy is certainly going to put the Gear VR in front of a lot more consumers. That will be especially true if they get a few units to have available in the Samsung Experience areas of Best Buy retail locations.

Best Buy is running a limited time promotion with Sprint to give customers a free one-month trial of Sprint’s prepaid network when they buy certain phones. This move should hopefully help Sprint boost their subscriber numbers after falling to second place to T-Mobile.
To qualify, all a customer has to do is purchase any eligible phone and have it activated at Best Buy. There are plenty of options, including Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Galaxy S 5, the LG Tribute and LG Volt, and the Sharp Crystal. After the trial month, users can pick between three different tiers of plans to move onto, starting at $35 per month for unlimited talk and text with 1 GB of data, and capping out at $55 per month for 6 GB of data.

There are two great promotions going on right now at Best Buy. The electronics retailer is discounting one of the year’s best handsets while attaching a gift card to a newcomer with serious benefits.
For the next 24 hours, Best Buy is cutting a whopping 65% off the LG G Watch — so from now until midnight tomorrow, Tuesday, December 2, you can pick one up for as little as $79.99. The deal applies to both the retailers online portal and to any of its nationwide bricks-and-mortar stores.
Here’s another Cyber Monday deal for you, this time for one of the best Android smartphones on the market. Best Buy is offering the LG G3 at just $1.00 with a two year contract. The deal is available for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, for Metallic Black, Silk White, and Blue variants of the device.
As always with these deals, there’s no guarantee how long it will last, so if you’re interested, hop on quick. You can see the devices on Best Buy’s website via the source link below.
