Holiday shopping could look a bit different this year. The research I have seen since quarantine and COVID changes all point to many more shopping online, shipping being delayed more than ever, leading many to say they want to start shopping earlier.
Because of crowd concerns, retailers say they will start early for the early shoppers. Some stores that started opening doors on Thanksgiving Day in the past are now staying closed and some retailers who will offer in-store deals will have lotteries to get in line. It will be different, but good news – you can start saving right now! What stores do I always watch? Best Buy is a top choice of mine for all the boys in this house!
You will want to keep a few things in mind when shopping 2020 Black Friday deals at Best Buy
- Deals are happening weekly and have already started. Some sales will be offered then end before Black Friday begins. It really depends on what is on your list and then which week Best Buy will offer the best deal on those items. I stay updated on the best Black Friday deals all month long at Slickdeals.
- Best Buy will be the KING of TV sales. Pages and pages of price drops on TV’s and some as much as $1000 off – all brands, smart TV’s, LED, UHD – so many! Their ad scan is full of TV deals that begin on Black Friday.
- Sales have already begun! Best buy is one of the few retailers that are starting early. More will be shopping online, shipping could be challenging this year with store closures, COVID requirements, etc. so you can start snagging deals today at Best Buy!
- No guessing! I have boys that game and are into their PC’s and I have no clue about gaming accessories. When I have visited Best Buy for gifts I always get employees eager to educate me. According to our boys Best Buy is great at making the best gaming brands available. There are so many choices out there but quality brands are important to serious gamers and Best Buy is our go-to. Gaming gifts will be a hit this year, so keep an eye out for the Best Buy gaming deals.
- Their store pick up is quick and organized. I have opted for store pickup a few times over quarantine. They have a stay-in-your car option at many locations where you show your phone, they scan your order and it gets brought out to you. At stores by me they keep parking spots open for pick ups right out front.
Finding products that are not typical in big box stores is another tip to add. Many popular gift items or winter stock up items like ski accessories, apparel and goggles can be found at great prices by independent retailers offering great deals on their own websites. Visit the brands actual site for great Black Friday deals.
