What should I buy from Best Buy this Black Friday?
Year after year, Best Buy delivers a ton of great discounts on every category it sells, and you can expect to find excellent deals on tech, smart home, gaming, and small home appliances during Black Friday 2021.
Smart home deals also thrive during Black Friday. From smart robot vacuums to smart speakers, it's a great time to find the addition you need for your home. Brands we see on sale year after year include Google, Lenovo, Philips, SimpliSafe, TP-Link, and iRobot.
Not only can you bank on finding game titles for every console on sale over Black Friday, but older generation consoles tend to drop in price too — usually when bundled with controllers and games.
If you're going to buy a stick vacuum, electric pressure cooker, or other small appliance, Black Friday is the time to do it. Best Buy always brings great deals on brands like Dyson, Kitchenaid, and Instant Pot, usually marking all-time low prices.
Can I shop in the Best Buy near me?
Black Friday shoppers can visit Best Buy locations to take advantage of deals — a stark contrast to Amazon.
Better still, Best Buy offers store pickup and contactless curbside pickup in addition to same-day and next-day delivery options. This means that if the product you want is in-stock at a location near you, you can just pick it up instead of waiting for it to ship.
How does Best Buy stand up to the competition on Black Friday?
Compared to other major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Target, Best Buy always offers competitively priced deals for Black Friday. There's a lot of overlap between deals at these stores, and oftentimes if something is out of stock from one retailer, it's still in stock at another.
Shopping at Best Buy may be the best option for you if you live close to one for curbside pickup or if you're a My Best Buy member with an exclusive discount. Best Buy is also known for offering strong tech and gaming deals — and you may be surprised at its home and kitchen deals as well.
