Best Buy has announced that it will be kicking off its Black Friday deals not on the Friday following Thanksgiving, but on Tuesday 13th October. There will be two days of deals, which just so happens to coincide with Amazon's shopping extravaganza, Prime Day.
Prime Day 2020 is happening far later in the year than normal, and so much closer to the other big shopping holidays, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And clearly Best Buy wanted in on the act, and didn't fancy coming up with another name.
The first of the Best Buy Black Friday deals have been teased, with the retailer promising a 70-inch Samsung 4K TV for $530. We're not sure which one, though it could be this $600 70-inch Samsung TV. Also in next week's sale, and set to feature on the Best Buy Black Friday Ad, will be laptops starting at $120 and JBL Free True Wireless headphones down to $70 (a saving of $80).
Best Buy also says that if something you buy now drops to a lower price during Black Friday, they will refund you the difference. Look for the "Black Friday Price Guaranteed" logo to make sure the product is included in the offer.
Best Buy is one of the biggest and oldest consumer electronics retailers in the US.
Founded in 1966 as Sound of Music, and originally an audio specialist, it now offers a wide range of tech products, from TVs to laptops, phones to headphones. And with that huge product offering, comes plenty of regular deals.
So what can we expect to see this Black Friday? And what about the best deals on offer at Best Buy right now? Read on for all the details.
Best Buy Black Friday deals: what to expect
Best Buy is promising to make this year's after Thanksgiving sale "even more memorable", so expect 27th November to see some big deals drop at Best Buy. And of course now we know, the Best Buy Black Friday deals will start on Prime Day.
Last year Best Buy officially released their Black Friday ad in the middle of the night on 7th November. The ad featured tons of savings on some of the hottest tech, from phones to tablets, TVs and headphones.
Best Buy stores opened on Thanksgiving Day at 5pm, with tickets handed out to customers one hour before opening. Best Buy then reopened on Friday at 8am, again, handing out tickets to customers one hour before they opened.
Best Buy delivered big discounts on cellphones, with up to $500 savings on the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone lines, and up to $400 off of the Pixel 4. So we expect to see savings on the iPhone 11 and Galaxy S20 in 2020.
Other Black Friday Best Buy highlights included Nintendo Switch bundle deals, and savings on the Microsoft Surface Pro, Beats By Dre headphones and Samsung soundbars.

Insignia 24in Fire TV Edition TV
The smallest Fire TV Edition TV that Insignia makes is now available with $40 off at Best Buy. At 24in, it's not going to suit a big lounge, but would be perfect for a more modest living space or as a bedroom set. And it's HD quality, not 4K.View Deal

If you want a bargain cheap TV, then the Insignia NS-32D220NA20 is hard to argue with. At just over $100 you get a 32-inch HD TV with two HDMI inputs and one USB input. No frills but add a games console, TV box or streaming stick and it's a great low-cost option.View Deal
Insignia 55in Full HD TV
This is a great price for a 55in TV. It's only HD, not 4K, and there's no smart functionality onboard, though that's easily added with the addition of a cheap streaming device. For everyday watching, it should do just fine.View Deal

Sony 65-inch X950G Series LED 4K UHD TV
