Best buy in Black Friday 2021 advertising plans, first offers start in October

The company’s first big vacation sale runs October 19-22.

WASHINGTON – Best Buy is the latest retailer to announce Black Friday sales earlier than usual this year. The company announced Thursday that its Black Friday sales will begin next week, October 19.

Best Buy joins Amazon and Target, both of which have announced early sales for the holidays at the end of the month.

One of the reasons that sales can start early is due to anticipated supply chain issues. The COVID-19 pandemic has already forced delays on many deliveries. The US Postal Service has also recently increased prices and slowed deliveries to reduce costs.

Best Buy’s first deals will last just four days, from Tuesday October 19 through Friday October 22, and include discounts on smart TVs, headphones, laptops and more. All of their discounts are also subject to their Black Friday Price Guarantee, which will refund you if prices drop between the time you buy and Black Friday.

Their offerings also include a bunch of flexible ways to shop, including curbside pickup, in-store pickup, free next day delivery, and even pickup options from other stores like UPS, CVS, and Walgreens.

Best Buy has already announced that its stores will be closed for Thanksgiving, but in addition to the October sale, their true Black Friday sale will begin a week in advance, on November 19. All of the same offers and price match guarantees apply.
