Amazon Prime Day offered better deals than last year, and may have encouraged people to become Prime members for the first time. Best Buy has responded with its own Black Friday in July, running from July 22–23. And its Elite and Elite Plus members get early access to the deals. Unlike with Amazon, you can't pay a membership fee to become an Elite Best Buy customer; you just have to spend a lot of money there! Fortunately, this intrepid reporter has done that for years, so I got a sneak peak at those deals.
