Customers have more ways to shop safely than ever before, including contactless curbside pickup, new store safety guidelines and more
MINNEAPOLIS—OCT. 8, 2020. It’s truly a holiday season like no other. To help shoppers start their holiday shopping season early — and safely — Best Buy is kicking off Black Friday next week.
For two days, on Oct. 13 and 14, shoppers can get dozens of deals straight from the not-yet-released Black Friday ad – including one of the most anticipated deals of the season: a 70-inch Samsung 4K Smart TV for just $529.99, a deal so good it will be on the ad’s front cover. The rest of Best Buy’s Black Friday ad, and more opportunities to score Black Friday deals, will come later this month.
And there’s no need to lose sleep wondering if these deals will get better before Black Friday — this year, they come with Best Buy’s Black Friday guarantee. Because it’s 2020 and life is unpredictable, if the price on one of these deals goes lower before Black Friday, My Best Buy® customers will be automatically reimbursed the difference.[i]
Best Buy is also offering even more options to get your tech, like contactless curbside pickup, store pickup, same-day and next-day delivery options and more.
Sneak peek of Best Buy’s Black Friday deals available next week:
- Samsung 70-inch Class 4K Smart TV for only $529.99 (Save $220)
- Laptops starting at $119.99
- JBL Free True Wireless headphones only $69.99 (Save $80)
More ways than ever to get your order:

Our team will deliver your order directly to your vehicle while maintaining proper social distancing and safety protocols.

Safety protocols for shopping in stores
As has been the case throughout the pandemic, and especially true this holiday season, nothing is more important to us than the safety of our customers and employees. To make sure everyone can safely shop:
- Customers and employees are required to wear face coverings. We will supply a face covering if you don’t have one.
- All employees are following multiple safety guidelines, including daily wellness checks, personal protective equipment, regular cleaning of high-touch areas and more.
- We will continue to limit the number of customers allowed in stores at a time throughout the holiday season. Each store will follow all local guidelines, and we will allow a limited maximum capacity to allow for the CDC-recommended social distancing guidelines.
- Each store will have a dedicated customer experience host at the front of the store to help direct customers, answers questions and manage any lines.
