Best Buy: Five Reasons You’d be Crazy to Wait until Thanksgiving to Start Holiday Shopping

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For many shoppers and deal-seekers, Thanksgiving and Black Friday have
been circled on calendars for months, and for good reason; it’s one of
the best times to score deals on holiday gifts and must-haves.

But this year, customers can’t wait until Turkey Day to start their
holiday shopping.

“More than ever, customers don’t need to wait until next week to find
great deals in stores and online,” said Mike Mohan, chief merchandising
officer at Best Buy. “Some of the lowest prices on the hottest tech
gadgets are available right now.”

Need more proof? Here are five reasons you should start shopping now:

1) Thanksgiving Day Football

The table is set, the turkey is roasting – it’s football time. How can
you watch the game on your new-and-improved TV if you’re waiting until
next week to buy it, especially when there are legit deals right now?

Swing by Best Buy and pick up a Samsung
48-inch LED Smart HDTV for $279.99 (save $220)
, a Toshiba
55-inch LED HDTV with built-in Chromecast for $349.99 (save $100)
or if you want to go all out, a Vizio
70-inch 4K UHD TV with a built-in Chromecast for $999.99 (save $300.)

And don’t forget about sound. Save
$132 on Samsung Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer ($147.99.)

2) Holiday Hosting Prep

So you’re hosting Turkey Day again this year – and unfortunately, your
home won’t clean itself and your meal won’t cook itself. How do you prep
for guests if you don’t have what you need?

Best Buy has hot deals on everything you need for cooking (for example,
save $50 on all Vitamix blenders) and tidying up before guests arrive (Dyson
V6 Total Clean Stick Vacuum for $379.99, savings of $170.)

3) Post-Election Dinner Table Conversation

We all have that family member. Although Nov. 8 has come and gone, many
of us dread that guest (or two) who has become a political pundit and
can’t wait to share his or her election views with you.

You’re going to need to tune them out – Sony
wireless headphones, which are $110 off
, should help.

4) Family Photos

This is one of few times of year you’re surrounded by all of your loved
ones, so you’re not going to want to miss the photo opportunities. This
weekend, get an Instax
instant film camera bundle with two cameras and two sets of film for
$99.99 (save $50.)

5) Your Holiday Shopping Budget

Wouldn’t a $450 Best Buy gift card help your holiday gifting budget?
Wouldn’t a new Samsung smartphone sweeten the deal?

Trade in any working smartphone for a new Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge
on a Sprint or Verizon installment billing plan and you’ll get a $450
Best Buy gift card. For free.
