It really is a holiday season like no other. Best Buy plans to start its two-day Black Friday event on Tuesday, October 1
Best Buy hasn’t released a Black Friday catalog yet, although it is reasonable to expect the retailer will attempt to compare or undercut some of Amazon’s offerings. On its blog, Best Buy says it will sell Samsung’s 4K 70-inch TV for just $ 530, JBL Free headphones for $ 70, and “Laptops” for $ 120.
Best Buy also promises a “Black Friday Guarantee” for all My Best Buy customers, although the terms of this guarantee are a bit confusing. If an item with a Black Friday Price Guaranteed is cheaper before November 28th, My Best Buy customers will automatically be refunded the difference.
Some customers may not be comfortable with their October Christmas shopping, but this is the only way to avoid shipping delays, re-orders, and in-store crowds. COVID-19 continues to weigh on the retail and shipping industries, and upcoming events like the presidential election, the launch of the iPhone 12, and the upcoming Xbox and PlayStation will only add to the burden. In other words, prepare for retailers to start Black Friday before November.
