Labor Day is here, and so are the deals. Today we discovered a customer-approved cheap soundbar at Best Buy has gotten even cheaper. It's the Insignia 2.0-Channel Mini Soundbar, and it is now one of our best soundbar deals. Usually $80, if you shop for it now (the deal ends around 1 AM Eastern Standard Time on the 5th) you'll get yours for $40 off, making the final price $40. Plus, it comes with 3 months of Apple TV+ for free, for both new and returning subscribers. It also comes with 3 months of YouTube Premium and 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited, though these free bonuses are only available for new subscribers. Overall, it is a ton of savings on a soundbar that is well-received. Check it out yourself by tapping the button below, or keep on reading to see the highlights, and what customers are saying.

Why you should buy the Insignia 2.0-Channel Mini Soundbar

Weekend deal: Save $50 on this popular 4K dash cam at Best Buy
The Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam on a car's windshield.

Whether it's a minor fender bender or a more significant car accident, having a dash cam can be a lifesaver, especially if you're dealing with insurance. Of course, there are a lot of dash cams to pick from with various levels of quality and features. Luckily, one of the better dash cams is on sale right now, the Nextbase 4k Dash Cam, and while it usually goes for $400, you can grab it from Best Buy for just $350. While that may not seem like much, $350 for a 4k-capable dash cam is impressive.

Why you should buy the Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam
The Nexbase 622GW is packed with some impressive features, such as the 4k resolution, which films at 30fps, although it can film at 60fps at 2k and, interestingly, 120fps at 1080p, although we doubt you'll very much run the last mode regularly. More importantly, it comes with some advanced image stabilization to help deal with the vibrations and bumps from your car, plus it comes with some next-level night vision and image polarization to help with sunny conditions that might otherwise cause glare. Even better, it has internal processing capable of helping with misty conditions, making this a great camera for all-weather driving, which is impressive for such a small package.
