Doorbusters and sale items will go live online on Thanksgiving, and most Best Buy retail stores will open at 5 pm local time on Thanksgiving Day.
Most Best Buy locations will have the following store hours: open at 5 pm local time on Thanksgiving, close at 1 am on Black Friday, and then reopen at 8 am. Stores close at 10 pm on Black Friday.
NOTE: The information below was assembled before the Black Friday ads came out. Please refer to the ads above before making any shopping plans.
The best time to shop depends on what you want to buy and what method you plan to shop. Take doorbusters as an example. Will Best Buy doorbusters be available online? Yes, but be ready at your computer early Thanksgiving morning. If you're hoping to get an in-store doorbuster, be at Best Buy when the doors open on Thanksgiving at 5 pm, and on Black Friday at 8 am.

Best Buy tends to offer new doorbusters each day, so peruse its ad carefully and make sure you know when the deals you want will launch.
Generally speaking, both Thanksgiving and Black Friday will be good days to shop, both in-store and online.
The biggest deal category from Best Buy will, of course, be electronics. Keep an eye out for great deals on TVs, especially, like last year's offer of a Westinghouse 58" 4K smart TV for $250. You'll likely also see good deals on speakers and streaming media players.
Other big categories will include computers, gaming and toys, and appliances. We saw top-notch Staff Pick deals in all these categories last year. And we saw Blu-ray movies as low as $4 each.
Another item to watch for? Virtual reality sets. Best Buy has been a great place to find low prices on these immersive gaming tools.
Best Buy offers doorbusters, and they typically include lots of terrific TV deals, like 2018's LG 70" 4K smart TV for $700. You should also expect big discounts on the latest smartphones, and low prices on laptops and tablets.
