It really is a holiday season like no other. Best Buy wants to start its two-day Black Friday event Tuesday, October 13. And if the science of Black Friday on a Tuesday is… questionable, Best Buy doesn’t care. The company just wants to compete Amazon Prime Day, which also takes place on October 13 and 14.
Best Buy has yet to release a Black Friday catalog, although it’s safe to assume the retailer will try to match or downgrade some of Amazon’s deals. In its blog, Best Buy suggests that it will sell Samsung 70-inch 4K TV for only $ 530, JBL Free headphones for $ 70 and “laptops” for $ 120.
Best Buy also promises ‘Black Friday Guarantee’ for everyone My best buy customers, although the terms of this warranty are a bit confusing. If an item with a “Black Friday Price Guaranteed” becomes cheaper before November 28, My Best Buy customers are automatically refunded the difference.
Some customers may not feel comfortable doing their Christmas shopping in October, but this is the only way to avoid delivery delays, back orders and in-store crowds. COVID-19 is still straining the retail and shipping industry, and upcoming events like the presidential election, the launch of the iPhone 12 and the upcoming Xbox and PlayStation increase the burden. In other words, get ready to see retailers start Black Friday before November.
