Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions regarding Best Buy’s Black Friday 2021 plans, plus, we’ll continually update this post with more information and deals as we receive them. Looking for gift ideas? We’ve got you covered there, too.
What are the top Best Buy Black Friday 2021 deals?
In previous years, Best Buy has marked down nearly everything in its inventory, including 4K TVs, laptops, headphones, smart speakers, streaming devices, robot vacuums, kitchen appliances, and toys.
When does Best Buy Black Friday 2021 start?
Best Buy’s Black Friday 2021 sale will consist of two roll-outs; the first wave of deals started on Tuesday, October 19, and will be followed by its official Black Friday sale on Friday, November 19.
Like in previous years, Best Buy locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25. However, you can still shop on their website or app.
Should I shop Best Buy early Black Friday 2021 deals?
New this year is Best Buy’s "Black Friday Price Guarantee." This means that anything you purchase during the sale will be the best price offered by Best Buy. Best Buy says that it’ll “automatically refund our My Best Buy and Best Buy Totaltech members the difference” if the price drops below what you paid. Non-members can also be refunded, but they’ll have to contact customer service, or visit a Best Buy store.
Will there be a Best Buy Black Friday ad scan?
Every year, Best Buy releases a circular spotlighting the doorbusters and limited-time deals it will make available during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As of writing, Best Buy has yet to release its official list of deals.
However, we expect to see the full ad scan weeks ahead of the official Best Buy Black Friday sale start date of Friday, November 19.
Are Best Buy Black Friday sales available online?
Yes. Shoppers can shop Best Buy’s Black Friday deals online. As an added benefit, shoppers can also make use of Best Buy’s store pickup and curbside pickup service. Doing so will allow you to get your gifts without waiting around for delivery.
Best Buy says that same-day delivery is available on thousands of in-stock items at its store.
This year, like last year, we expect online and in-store doorbusters to be equal in quality. So if you want to stick to shopping online, you won’t miss out on any good deals.
