Best Buy is the 800 pound gorilla of consumer electronics, and one of the reasons why it has become so successful is because like Publix, they always make sure loyal customers have something to look forward to in terms of savings and deals. There are literally thousands of deals ongoing, but they can be classified into four categories:
- Weekly ads
- Deal of the Day
- Best Buy Outlet
- Hottest Deals
- College Student Deals
Weekly ads provide you with a list of discounts and savings that Best Buy is offering right now. To avail of this program, head on over to their website and enter your zip code or city / state location so you can check their latest offers. Keep in mind that offers vary from city to city so you may want to check out a few to find the best deal.
Deal of the Day
As the name makes clear, these special offers are good for that particular day only. For instance, Best Buy might offer the Zmodo NVR Security System for sale for $219.99, with savings of $160 (regular retail price $379.99), and you get free shipping. However, this deal will no longer be available tomorrow as it will be replaced by another one. If you want to be updated, sign up for the Deal of the Day email so you’ll be immediately notified if something’s up.
Best Buy Outlet
If you’re looking to save some serious money, check out the Best Buy Outlet deals for pre-owned, refurbished, open box and clearance sales. All of the products sold are covered by the Best Buy Return & Exchange Promise, verified to be working, and each one has a warranty.
You can check out the latest open box deals in just a single location, and once you have made your selection, place an order online. To start shopping, just provide your zip code and you’ll gain access to all the best open box deals in your location.
You can browse in a wide array of categories including tablets and computers, car and GPS, mp3 players, home theater and TV, appliances and more. You can also shop by savings, which ranges from 40% to 60% off, representing a significant amount of money that you can save, and you can shop by brands as well.
Here you can take advantage of the hottest deals available. The offers are constantly updated, but you can expect up to 25% discounts on HDTVs and other consumer electronics as well as free shipping for mobile devices, gift cards for smartphones, and low priced laptops starting at $199.
College Student Deals
These are special deals that provide discounts for college students for a variety of items including iMacs, MacBooks, Select Surface Pro 3, Pebble Smartwatches, Insignia TVs and more. In addition, all of these items come with free shipping, entitling you to additional savings. Students just need to submit their .edu email address (non .edu emails will not receive offers), and the codes will be given them.
