Amazon Fire TV, Apple AirPods, Coco among the top-10 sellers at Best Buy in March

2 weeks ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in Facts

Ask yourself what the best-selling products at Best Buy are and you're likely thinking TVs, laptops, or washing machines. While Best Buy certainly sells a good number of those, its best-selling items (at least last month - March 2018) were mostly things you could put in your pocket.

We took a look at Best Buy's sales ranking data for the month of March, 2018 and then averaged out more than 100,000 items' category rank to come up with this list (our computers hate us right now). It says a lot about what people are buying, at least at Best Buy at this time of year.

Amazon Fire TV

Amazon's Fire TV Stick led sales in March. This sub-$50 device turns any TV into a smart TV with access to Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and, of course Amazon Prime Video. There's little wonder this well-priced device outsells its competitors from Apple and Google.

Antivirus Software

Webroot Internet Security took multiple top spots (as it usually does). This is likely due to bundling with computers and Best Buy's Geek Squad services, if not simple consumer fear of viruses and malware.

Apple Headphone Madness

When Apple decided to drop the headphone port on its iPhones, the world groaned. It appears many people love their standard wired headphones, as the diminutive Lightning-to-3.5mm Headphone Adapter that sells for under $10 is clearly making the company a pretty penny. That said, the Apple AirPods, Apple's wireless headphones that solve the whole headphone jack issue, took the 10th best-selling spot at Best Buy last month despite the $159.99 price tag.

Office, Excel, and PowerPoint

Microsoft Office 365, considered by many to be a must-have software package if you're going to get anything productive done, continues to sell well at spot 7 of 10.

Remember Me

Finally, the world fell in love with Disney•Pixar's Coco in 2017, and in its first full month of availiability for home watching, the movie's Blu-ray DVD took spot 9.
