Best Buy's Outlet Event - deals better than Amazon Prime Day?

Best Buy is hosting a sales event for the whole of October. There will be 50% off appliances and tech for a month. That might be better than Prime Day

Best Buy's Outlet Event is the place to go if you're looking for a new large appliance. I've seen thousands taken off household brands, including LG and Samsung. I promise you won't find prices like this anywhere else. That's a personal promise.

Whilst Amazon Prime Big Deals Days promise some incredible early discounts on small appliances, they won't rival Best Buy's large appliance deals. As a shopping expert, I couldn't resist taking a look at what Best Buy has to offer. Whether you're looking to replace your washing machine, dishwasher, or something smaller, this is the place to look.

It's worth saying that these discounts come on refurbished appliances, but, in many ways, that's better than buying brand-new. Refurbishing an appliance means that it functions like a fresh model, but you have also saved surplus, unnecessary waste from entering into the environment. 

If the Prime Day deals don't have what you're looking for, I'd recommend taking a look at these excellent deals.

KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer | Was $329.99, now $294.99 at Best Buy
There's no rivalling KitchenAid and their iconic stand mixers. The Classic is the predecessor to the Artisan, and while not quite as good, it's far cheaper. This model is great for everyday baking. A $35 discount isn't huge, but it does make this the cheapest KitchenAid on offer.

All the detail is our full KitchenAid Classic stand mixer review.
