We’re all set for a holiday shopping battle royale in mid-October, as Best Buy has announced that they, too, are holding a major shopping event on Oct. 13 and 14.
Oct. 13 is also the day Apple plans to announce the iPhone 12.
Here’s what you need to know:
Best Buy will unlock Black Friday deals Oct. 13-14.
In their announcement of the sale, Best Buy says customers will have access to “dozens of deals straight from the not-yet-released Best Buy Black Friday ad” for two days.
The full Black Friday ad will release sometime later in the month.
Get a 70-inch Smart TV for $200 off.
Best Buy has given shoppers a sneak peek of the Black Friday deals they can expect starting Oct. 13:
- Samsung 70-inch Class 4K Smart TV for only $529.99, reg. $749.99
- Laptops starting at $119.99
- JBL Free True Wireless headphones only $69.99, reg. $149.99
If the price drops on any of these sale items, you’ll be automatically reimbursed.
But you’ve gotta be a My Best Buy loyalty program member (it’s free to sign up). When you buy, make sure you’ve logged in to your My Best Buy account (or give your information at in-store checkout), and if the price drops below your purchase price before Black Friday, you’ll be automatically credited the difference by Dec. 14.
This holiday season offers a half-dozen ways for customers to get their orders.
Shoppers can schedule an in-store appointment to shop at Best Buy, but that’s not the only way to score the early Black Friday deals. Here are the other options BestBuy.com offers:
- Contactless curbside pickup
- In-store pickup
- Same-day delivery
- Free next-day delivery
- Pickup at 16,000 alternate locations, including UPS and CVS stores
Customers may return holiday purchases through Jan. 16.
Best Buy has introduced a super-long return window this year. Purchases made Oct. 13 through Jan. 2, 2021 will be able to be returned through Jan. 16, 2021.
