[Update] Best Buy reached out and let us know that the sale actually begins on Friday.
Shortly after HTC announced their new partnership with Beats Electronics, Best Buy announced a special promotion taking place this weekend at all retail stores across America. Essentially, if you purchase any HTC smartphone — on any carrier — you will be eligible to receive 20% off a set of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. The deal will expire August 14th, so it is recommended you consider purchasing a smartphone and looking through the Beats by Dr. Dre offerings sooner, rather than later.
The full press release can be read below:
