Apple Watch SE fell to one of its lowest prices during Black Friday 2021 sales. Best Buy is selling the 40mm model at a discount price of $ 219 (around Rs. 16,400). The offer is ideal if you have a friend or relative coming and you can bring it (provided it is below the customs limit allowed for them). You can also use a third-party shipping service to import it indirectly to India, in which case you also need to consider shipping and import duties.

Kindle Paperwhite model 2021
The all-new Kindle Paperwhite 2021 (ad-supported) model fell to $ 105 (around Rs.8,000) during Amazon’s Black Friday 2021 sale. This is the new Paperwhite model with 6.8 inch screen and adjustable warm light. The only catch is, this is an ad-supported model, and if you don’t mind a few ads for a lower price, it seems like a pretty good deal considering the Indian prices. Amazon will not ship it directly to India, so you will need to consider third-party shipping services.

Oculus Quest 2
Best Buy is offering a $ 50 e-gift card with the purchase of a new Oculus Quest 2 VR headset. This could be useful for you or someone you know in the US, and effectively reduces the price to $ 250 (around Rs. 19,000). However, you would still need to figure out the logistics part, but given that it is still not officially available in India, it would still turn out to be a lot less than what you find here both online and offline.
