Edit: Best Buy has extended this through today!
This is it – Black Friday week! Best Buy had released many deals a couple of weeks ago in a preview but now they have their early Black Friday access live for their elite members. This only lasts today so now is the time to lock in any good deals you want!
The 2017 Best Buy Early Black Friday Access Live – For Elite Members
Best Buy has two elite levels – Elite and Elite Plus. A customer reaches the tiers by spending a certain amount in a calendar year, $1,500 for Elite and $3,500 for Elite Plus. Since they introduced the new program (and for years before that), I have had Elite Plus (of the highest before) access. I love it for a variety of reasons but one is the ability to get early Black Friday access. In fact, each year, I am able to grab everything I would look for on Black Friday the Monday before. Not bad!
These deals end at 11:59PM CT today!
How to Get the Best Buy Early Black Friday Prices?
First, if you are an elite member (it is open to Elite as well as Elite Plus members), you need to be signed it to your Best Buy account. Once you are, you can visit the link above and start shopping. The items that are on sale will have their regular or sale prices crossed out and will reveal your Black Friday prices.
This has already started and is only good through the end of today (or while pre-sale deals last) so it is good to check earlier rather than later!
There are many tablets on sale this week. They have some awesome deals on the iPad Mini 4 with 128GB for under $300 as well as their cheapest iPad, the new iPad 9.7″ for $249. You can also have access to the Amazon tablets as well as a pretty nice deal on a Microsoft Surface tablet.
- Up to $150 off iPad Models
- Amazon tablets as low as $29.99
- Save up to $370 on select Microsoft Surface tablets
- iPad 9.7″ 32GB for $249
- iPad Mini 4 with 128GB for $275
To be honest, I used to be more clued in on the prices of televisions and what they were going for. It has been a while since I have checked so make sure you read the reviews. Still, there seem to be some pretty decent deals.
- LG 43″ 4K LED SmartTV – Sale price $279 (regular price $429)
- Samsung 50″ 4K LED SmartTV – Sale price $399 (regular price $499)
- Sony 60″ 4k LED SmartTV – Sale price $599 (regular price $799)
This is a category I love to watch (no pun intended!) and there are several decent deals here.
- Apple Watch Bands up to $30 off
- FitBit Alta HR and Charge for $50 off
- Garmin Vivoactive 3 for $249
- Garmin Vivoactive HR for $119
- FitBit Iconic with $50 Best Buy gift card
- Garmin Fenix 3 HR – $299 (regularly $549)
I had the Garmin Fenix 3 and love it. The Garmin Fenix 3 HR has an optical hear rate monitor built-in to the back of the watch (like the Apple Watch). It is a quality watch. My kids have the FitBit Alta HR devices and also really love those. There is really a little bit for everyone here!
If you are a drone fan, check out the DJI Spark. It is on sale for only $399 (but you must use your smartphone to control it as it does not come with the controller). If you need some new sport earbuds, check out the Bose SoundSport In-Ear earbuds for only $49. Finally, if you are searching for video game consoles and deals, check out this page.
This is the time of sales and it is good to see many starting now. Do not forget to go through a shopping portal though most of them only will give you 1 mile/point or even .5 mile or point for your shopping at Best Buy. If you are not yet a Best Buy reward member, make sure you sign-up as you will earn rewards when you shop for future redemption.
Also, check out the other categories as there are a lot of decent deals available – and only for Best Buy elite members today!
