Best Buy is the go-to place for electronics and major appliances all year long so it’s not surprising that this big box chain has some pretty cool deals on those items in their Black Friday ad. Like several other major retailers, Best Buy is getting a head start on the Black Friday madness by having a preview sale this weekend featuring many of the items in the circular with free shipping all through the holidays.
Also like most retail chains, Best Buy will be opening its doors at 5 pm on Thanksgiving for the earliest of the early birds, then close at 1 am on Black Friday before reopening at 8 am. (Do employees get to go home or do they have to sleep on cots in the store room?) In an effort to avoid some of the door-opening craziness that has been a part of Black Fridays past, Best Buy will begin giving out tickets for their Doorbusters at 3 pm on Thanksgiving, meaning early birds must show up even earlier.
For those who prefer not to venture out into the Black Friday fray, most items in the Best Buy ad will also be available online. Most, but not all. Best Buy has not yet released the hours for the online sale but it’s highly likely that Black Friday will begin early on Thanksgiving morning.
Of course there are TVs, lots of them. Best Buy’s Thursday Doorbusters include a Sharp 50” Smart 4K Ultra HD Roku TV for just $179.99. This is obviously a rock bottom price but the bad news is that it’s in-store only, meaning you’d better be camped out in front of your local Best Buy so you can get one of those Doorbuster tickets that will be handed out starting at 3 pm on Thanksgiving afternoon. Better bring along a turkey leg to munch on because this could be a long wait.
Probably easier to get will be the Sony 60” Smart 4K Ultra HD TV for $599, a saving of $400, and the Samsung 65″ 4K LED Smart HDTV for $799.99, a discount of $350. Save $150 on the LG 43″ 4K LED Smart Ultra HD TV for $279.99 and $300 on the Samsung 50″ 4K LED Smart Ultra HD TV on sale for $399.99.
There are more big specials on big TVs for Black Friday as a brand new batch of Doorbusters becomes available, like the Toshiba 55″ 4K LED Ultra HD TV with Built-In Chromecast discounted $220 to $279.99. This is another in-store only special so it may be hard to find.
If you want to go really, really big, Best Buy has great deals on several extra large TVs. The Sony 75″ LED 2160p Smart 4K Ultra HD TV with High Dynamic Range list priced at $2,799.99 will be going for $1,999.99. If that one won’t fit on your wall, there’s the Sony 70″ LED Smart 4K Ultra HD TV discounted $600 to $1,199,99.
Best Buy has many more TVs starting at $79.99 plus all the hardware you need to mount and set them up plus DVD and Blu-ray players, like the Sony Streaming WiFi Built-In Black Blu-ray Player discounted $40 to $49.99. Pair up your new smart TV with the LG UP875 4K Ultra HD 3D Blu-ray Player that regularly sells for $199.99, discounted $100 to just $99.99.
If you don’t buy a smart TV, you’ll need a streaming device to watch services like Netflix and Hulu. Best Buy Black Friday has the lowest price we’ve seen so far on the Google Chromecast – $19.99, a discount of $15.01. At that price, you can pick one up for every TV in your house. Best Buy also has the Roku Premiere+ Streaming Media Player for $49.99, a saving of $50. Not as well known as the Roku and Chromecast but highly rated by users, the NvidiaShield TV 16GB streaming media player with controller is on sale now for $169.99.
A good reason to purchase your big screen TV and all the gadgets that go with it from Best Buy is their free delivery and optional installation. It’s fine to have that discount giant drop off a 24″ or 32″ TV on your doorstep if you plan to let it sit on a table but mounting a 75″ model on the wall may be more complicated than you expected so expert installation guarantees that your expensive new TV won’t fall off onto the floor.
