The Best Black Friday Deals from Best Buy

You can always count on Best Buy to have some of the top deals for Black Friday. Here are five of the most tempting and some of them might even be worth tearing yourself away from that Thanksgiving dinner or getting out of bed at dawn on Friday morning.

This year Best Buy stores will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, close at 1 a.m. and reopen at 8 a.m. on Black Friday, giving their unfortunate employees a chance to take a short nap on the boxes of big screen TVs in the stock room. Several of Best Buy’s better deals will be up for grabs at 5 p.m. and won’t last long so you might want to bring along a turkey leg to knaw on while you’re waiting in line. Tickets for the doorbuster specials will be handed out two hours before the stores open, quantities are limited and there will be no rainchecks.

The biggie, the one that has two women camping outside a Best Buy store in California, is the Panasonic 50” LED HDTV for $199.99. This baby will look great on your living room wall, provided you have that much empty space.

If you’re willing to pay more for an even bigger screen, Best Buy also has a Samsung 55”4K UHD TV for $899.99. This doorbuster is also available only at 5 p.m. Thursday.

The third Thanksgiving Day deal is $100 off all models of the iPad Air 2. Sale prices on the 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions start at $399.99. Thursday’s deal number four is a set of Beats Solo headphones for $79.99.

Deal number five is $120 off the 11” MacBook Air and this one will be available at 8 a.m. on Black Friday.

If the thought of waiting for hours in a Best Buy parking lot risking frostbite and pneumonia doesn’t appeal to you, Best Buy promises online doorbusters all day Thursday at You’ll have to check in frequently but at least you’ll be indoors where it’s warm.
