Best Buy Black Friday hours tend to start at 5 a.m on Black Friday, with doorbusters for those early birds.
On the big day you’ll want to get in line at least an hour before the store opens, as they usually hand out tickets to customers to denote who got there first for the big ticket sale items.

TIP: If you’ve been struggling to find a Nintendo Switch, then we recommend you set up a Zoolert alert to be notified every time the Nintendo Switch is in stock at Best Buy and other retailers.
6. Xbox, PS, and Nintendo games & console savings can be found on BestBuy.com during their Black Friday sale.
It’s no surprise that gaming consoles were a hot commodity the holiday shopping season. Black Friday is always a great time to find the best deals on gaming consoles and video games but the trouble was finding them in-stock.
7. Best Buy smart TVs bundled with FuboTV, Apple TV Plus, and Fire TV can save you up to 52%.
If a big smart TV with a small price tag is on your wish list, look to score up to 52% in savings. In years past, the Insignia 55″ Fire TV (reg. $549.99) was available for $299.99, and it was bundled with 30 days of free FuboTV (reg. $64.99) and three months of Apple TV+ (reg. $14.97 total).
8. If you see “Only at Best Buy” on TVs, expect stripped-down versions of more expensive TVs sold by the same brand.
We see this from Best Buy with brands like Toshiba, Samsung, and LG. What does “Only at Best Buy” mean? Basically, the TV was made for Best Buy to sell specifically on Black Friday.
9. Best Buy Chromebook deals will score you deep savings the week of Black Friday.
Chromebooks are among the very best buys (pun absolutely intended) of the season. So if you miss the back-to-school laptop sales and are looking to upgrade for the spring semester, Black Friday at Best Buy is the time to pull the trigger. We like savings of at least $100 off the regular price.
10. You’ll find savings up to 20% off on a Best Buy MacBook during the Black Friday sale.
Best Buy’s lack Friday Deals include Mac computers, and the discount on this particular model is 19%.
11. Skip Best Buy’s appliances during Black Friday.
But we’re looking for the very best savings, and you don’t need to wait until Black Friday for those.
Best Buy offers up to 40% off open-box appliances year-round (see what’s offered here). You choose from Excellent, Satisfactory, and Fair conditions. The bigger the cosmetic signs of use, the steeper the discount.
12. Use Best Buy curbside pickup if you want to avoid the crowds.
If the thought of walking into a Best Buy store on Black Friday scares you, try placing your online order with free in-store or curbside pickup instead. Depending on the time of day you order, your stuff could be ready in as little as 30 minutes.
You can pick up your order inside the store, or choose contactless curbside pickup at checkout. Note that this strategy will only be successful if the product you’re buying is already in stock at your Best Buy location.
13. Place your order by 2 p.m. and get Best Buy same-day delivery.
For the past two years, Best Buy gave shoppers some sweet options for receiving products faster than ever, with Best Buy same-delivery and free curbside pickup.
They offer same-day delivery on a wide range of items, as long as you place your order by 2 p.m. (orders are delivered by 8 p.m.). Anything ordered after that time is eligible for free next-day delivery, which still rocks.
It’s especially useful when you consider that delivery services such as Instacart can’t match Best Buy’s holiday sale prices.
Check to see if Best Buy’s Same Day Delivery is available in your area, then simply add the option at checkout and you’ll be good to go.
14. The Best Buy holiday return policy lets you return items through mid-January.
Best Buy introduced a super-long return window a few years ago that’s handy for holiday shopping. This year, you can return purchases starting now at Best Buy through Jan. 13, 2024.
15. Ditch the small Best Buy kitchen appliances and shop Kohl’s instead for 70% – 80% off with rebates.
Don’t buy slow cookers, air fryers, or any other small kitchen appliance from Best Buy during Black Friday. Instead, use rebates at Kohl’s, Macy’s, and JCPenney to take 70% – 80% off your purchase. During Black Friday last year we used rebates to save on:
- Bella and Art & Cook appliances from Macy’s
- Cooks air fryers from JCPenney
- Toastmaster appliances from Kohl’s
16. Best Buy Price Match Guarantee gives you the lowest price until mid-January.
The Best Buy Price Match Guarantee includes both price matching with competitors and price adjusting with Best Buy’s own prices. Normally, the guarantee works within the normal return and exchange window: 15 days within purchase of most items if you’re not a My Best Buy member. But during the holidays, this policy gets a big boost.
Items purchased at Best Buy between Oct. 27 and Dec. 30 can be price matched through Jan. 13 with Best Buy’s Holiday Price Match Guarantee (unless it’s on the list of exclusions). And remember that purchases made October 27 through Dec. 30, 2023, have an extended return period through January 13, 2024.
That means you can shop the sale, buy all of your holiday gifts, and then sit back and watch for the price to drop until mid-January. The only days not included in the policy are the Friday before Thanksgiving Day through the Monday after Thanksgiving.
17. Open a Best Buy credit card two weeks before Black Friday.
If you know you’re going to make a big purchase during the sale and it makes sense financially, consider signing up for the Best Buy credit card.
You’ll get 5% back every day, plus 10% back on your first day of purchases.
Realize that the 10% back you get on your first day of shopping with the credit card is only valid for 14 days after you sign up, so make sure to time it right if you want to use the 10% off during Best Buy Black Friday deals!
As always, be sure to pay off your balance within 25 days of your purchase date, because interest rates on credit cards are very steep.
If you have any more questions about how you can make the most of your Best Buy savings on Black Friday, let me know in the comments below and I’ll get back to you.
18. October is Member Exclusive Month and members got early access to Black Friday deals.
If you’re a My Best Buy Plus or Total member (the two paid tiers of the retailer’s rewards program), you had access to their early Black Friday deals from Friday, Oct. 27, through Sunday, Oct. 29. Additionally, if you spent $500 or more at Best Buy as a Plus or Total member by Oct. 31, 2023, you received a $50 promotional certificate to use on a future purchase.
We also noticed that the deals were even better for the paid members before they went live to the public on Oct. 30, 2023. For example, the Roomba i7 listed above at $379.99, was $349 for members and the Apple MacBook Air was $999 for members instead of the current $1099.
Keep in mind, that the My Best Buy Plus membership costs $49.99 a year and the Total membership costs $179.99 a year. However, if you made that $500+ spend at Best Buy in October, you basically got back your $49.99 Plus membership fee with the $50 promotional certificate.
Best Buy Black Friday FAQ
1. What day does Black Friday start at Best Buy?
Black Friday 2023 at Best Buy will start Nov. 17, 2023 and end Nov. 25.
2. What time does Best Buy Black Friday start?
Since Best Buy is no longer open on Thanksgiving Day, the store will open at 5 a.m. on Friday, November 24.
3. Does Best Buy get cheaper on Black Friday?
Yes, and the best part is that the items that get cheaper are ones that shoppers tend to focus on most heavily during the holiday season.
4. Is Best Buy cheaper on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
The key to shopping Best Buy Black Friday is getting a good deal while it’s still in stock. In years past, Best Buy Cyber Monday deals haven’t been quite as good as Black Friday. For example, an Insignia 55″ TV was on sale for 45% off on Black Friday, but it was only 38% off on Cyber Monday. Not a terrible deal for a TV, but the takeaway is to buy when you see a good price instead of waiting around for a potentially better deal that may not come.
