- Insignia Universal Remote Control $15 (expired)
Best Buy is selling their Insignia 4-Device Universal Remote Control for $15 today.
It appears to be nearly identical to an Inteset Remote Control which we purchased a year ago.
This remote works like any other standard universal remote control, but can also control streaming media boxes such as a Roku, Apple TV, and Xbox One.
It is not as sleek-looking as a Logitech remote, but should give more function than a regular remote that came with your TV.
Both are also sold in stores, so your local Best Buy may have this TV on the floor to see before you buy it.
Each have mostly positive reviews on BestBuy.com.
The review site Rtings.com gave the Toshiba a decent review, with good black levels and picture quality, but motion blur which will make sports and games look washed.
The Visio's review is better.
Even still, both are very good values at $300 and under.
Western Digital Easystore 4TB External/Desktop USB Hard Drive for $90.
Most other 4TB external hard drives sell for over $100.
This is a larger version of an external hard drive that uses a power cord and USB data cable.
Some smaller/portable versions of a 4TB hard drive are available for around $100, are lighter, and no power cable needed.
Describe the processor, operating system, and memory inside the laptop.
Describe its condition, battery functionality, and whether you have the power cord.
Your estimated trade-in value will be displayed on the screen.
Bring that laptop into a Best Buy for your store credit.
You are responsible for wiping personal data off the laptop.
Any old tax returns, photos, passwords, browser history, spreadsheets, or emails should be deleted before taking it to the store.
This includes software licensed to you, such as Microsoft Office.
However, the operating system (Windows) must stay functional.
Credit is given as a gift card, which can apply toward a new TV, tablet, laptop, camera, toy, or anything sold at Best Buy.

- 55" 4K TV for $400

Hard to find a universal remote with streaming device support for under $50.
We own the (nearly) identical "Inteset" remote, and like it a lot.
