Best Buy seems like an obvious destination for Cyber Monday sales, but what do you need to know to nab the hottest deals? Read on to learn what you can expect at Best Buy for Cyber Monday.
Best Buy puts out a Cyber Monday ad, and judging by past years, you can expect it to be released the day before Cyber Monday. This year, that's Sunday, December 1.
In 2018, Best Buy kicked off its Cyber Monday sale on Sunday and kept it running for the whole week. This year, that would make the likely dates December 1 to December 7.
With the online sale starting on Sunday, it's in your wallet's best interest to shop early. That way, you'll have a better chance of snagging inventory before it sells out. However, Best Buy's sale isn't restricted to just Sunday and Monday — a number of deals will hang around all week.
Best Buy will also likely have daily deals during Cyber Week, and it's worth checking the site early every day to see what's being offered. You don't want to miss out!
The biggest difference between Best Buy's Black Friday and Cyber Monday events is that the latter lacks multiple days of early access sales, as well as in-store-only doorbusters. Generally speaking, you can expect both sales to feature similar types of items. We may even see some Black Friday deals return during Cyber Week.
Last year's Best Buy ad was filled with deals on electronics of all types, but TVs were the headline deals, taking up most of the space in the first few pages of the ad. One excellent offer was a Westinghouse 50" 4K smart TV for $200, one of the lowest prices we'd ever seen for a 50" 4K set.
Best Buy also offered a wide variety of deals on smartphones, although the best deals generally required activation on specific carriers.
Other categories to watch include small appliances, movies, tablets, and streaming media devices.
If you plan to shop at Best Buy, consider joining the My Best Buy program. It's free to sign up, and you can start building up reward points. Plus, My Best Buy members receive exclusive access to certain sales. On the day before Cyber Monday last year, for example, My Best Buy members got access to the store's Cyber Monday doorbusters.
In general, you should be prepared to shop fast, and to jump on a good deal when you see it. Sunday and Monday should be the best days to shop, having more deals than other days during Cyber Week. Quantities of in-demand items will likely be limited.
Remember that Best Buy's site can experience slowdowns on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday due to high traffic. You might have to refresh pages several times in order to add an item to your cart and then check out. Try to be patient.
