Best Buy Black Friday deals 2021: when the sale will start and what we expect to see

When it comes to holiday shopping, many people’s first port of call will be to check out the latest Best Buy Black Friday deals. Not only does the big-box store have a huge range of consumer electronics, but it also frequently offers the absolute best price on massively popular products like TVs, consoles, laptops, and wearables.

We’re not getting ahead of ourselves, though. Black Friday 2021 isn’t for a while yet – November 26, to be precise – so in the meantime, we’re using this page to answer any questions you might have about Best Buy’s deals, confirm any dates, and break any early bargains that we see crop up.

  • Head over to Best Buy to see what’s on offer right now

The times are a-changing

The way we shop has changed over the last two years, with COVID-19 forcing us to avoid going in-store and rely far more on online offerings. We expect it to be similar this Black Friday, and while we can hope that any restrictions will have been eased somewhat, many people will still be hesitant to join the heaving masses at the sliding doors.

It’s also worth noting that Best Buy has just announced that its brick-and-mortar stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, following rival Target’s lead. The website will certainly be available, though, so this demonstrates that Best Buy is really leaning into online this year.

As you likely already know, Best Buy is your go-to store for just about any form of consumer electronics. So, whether you’re after a massive 4K TV, a brand new air fryer, or an iPad Pro, Best Buy’s definitely worth checking out.

Best Buy Black Friday deals: FAQ

When does the Best Buy Black Friday sale 2021 start?

The official date is November 26, but as with previous years, we’ll be seeing deals coming in dribs and drabs throughout the month before the big day. However, we’d be tempted to hold out until the 26th for the best deals.

Last year, Best Buy stores opened at 5am in many locations, and while we can’t guarantee the same for 2021, we think the same tactic will be used again. To make sure, check out Best Buy’s local store index.

Online, we can’t say for sure when the best deals will be dropping, but we’d definitely log on as early as possible to avoid potential disappointments.

Best Buy Black Friday deals: what to expect

Best Buy’s yearly Black Friday sale encompasses all areas of its site and retail stores, so you can be pretty much sure there’s going to be a huge array of items on sale from early November onwards.

4K TVs, cheap laptops, and small kitchen appliances are the areas which Best Buy tends to focus on in regards to its ads around Black Friday. That said, if you’re looking for cheaper tech like headphones and games you’ll find plenty of price cuts on both the latest and older models. Unlocked cell phones also tend to see really nice discounts over Black Friday, especially on Android flagships, so it can be a great time to think about upgrading.

Will Best Buy be open on Black Friday?

In short, yes, all of Best Buy’s stores will be open to the public on Black Friday (November 26). However, on Thanksgiving the stores will be closed, signalling a wider trend in the industry.

When will the Best Buy Black Friday ad be released?

Hotly anticipated and jam-packed with all the best deals, the Best Buy Black Friday ad is an indispensable resource for anyone looking to save over the shopping season.

Last year, the ad was released on Thursday, October 29. If Best Buy follows the same gameplan, we expect to see the 2021 ad go live on Thursday, October 28, giving shoppers plenty of time to choose hot products and save up their cash.
