09 Jun: How to create a techy, eco-friendly backyard

As we enter summer, we’ll all be spending more time outside. That makes this the perfect time to create an outdoor oasis in your backyard.

Technology can enhance your outdoor space where you’ll want to relax with your friends and family all summer long. And you can do it in a way that is good for the environment, too.

“Backyards have become an extension of the home,” said Javier Davila, a Best Buy Home Expert from Laredo, Texas. “When I create a solution for a customer, it’s vital to think of the experience of outdoor entertaining.”

Best Buy - rebates

09 Jun: The ultimate guide to rebates at Best Buy

For years, Best Buy has partnered with utility companies across the country to provide rebates to our customers. With the help of the Best Buy rebate finder and the ENERGY STAR® mark, we aim to help our customers save money, use less energy and live more sustainably.

Why do utilities offer rebates?

Utility companies want their customers to use less energy. Many states have sustainability goals and require utilities to offer energy-saving programs to their customers. Reduced energy usage is also good for utility companies because the less energy people use, the fewer power plants utilities need to build (which is costly).

28 May: Teens showcase Pride through partnership between PopSockets, Best Buy

Four teens from Best Buy’s Teen Tech Centers across the country recently had the opportunity to express themselves and support the LGBTQIA+ community by designing their own PopSockets PopGrips.

The teens participated in a program in partnership between Best Buy Teen Tech Centers and PopSockets to design smartphone grips that will be sold online at BestBuy.com beginning in June as part of our celebration of Pride month.

The teens were commissioned and compensated through PopSockets’ standard procedures for freelance designers and had the chance to follow along in the process to see their design evolve from an idea to a product sold by Best Buy.

03 May: 5 Tips For A Safe, Secure Password

Internet safety is a concern for everyone, and the first line of defense is a secure password.

Updating all your various passwords can be tedious, but it’s so important for keeping your devices and online information safe. Once a cybercriminal has your password, they might be able to access your bank account or other personal information.

“Changing your password is important because it prevents unauthorized people from having access to your data,” Geek Squad Agent Ericka Jones said. “Online scams and data breaches are happening every day, so updating your password frequently will help keep you and your information safe.”
