Best Buy is once again shaking up our traditional Black Friday expectations. First we had the Flash Sale. And now, starting Tuesday, Oct. 19 through Friday, Oct. 22, 2021, you can begin your pre-Black Friday holiday shopping with some of the season’s hottest tech gifts at deep discounts. That’s right…for Black Friday prices. Don’t hesitate to shop either, ’cause Best Buy offers a Black Friday guarantee (more on that below).

Here’s what you need to know:

3. Receive automatic Best Buy price adjustments before Black Friday if…

Sign up for My Best Buy in advance so you can get early access to deals on Apple products.

….you’re a My Best Buy (free membership) or a Totaltech member (paid membership). Then you can sit back and relax, knowing that if you buy something during next week’s sale and the price drops before Black Friday, Best Buy will automatically reimburse you the difference by Dec. 15, 2021. Be sure to sign in to your My Best Buy account during checkout or provide your member info to the cashier to ensure they can track your purchase for any price drops.

TIP: If you’re not a My Best Buy or Totaltech member, you can still get reimbursed, but it’s not automatic. You’ll have to contact Best Buy customer service or go into the store and ask for it.
