How-to Save Money at Best Buy

Best Buy has a few programs that can help you save money! Keep an eye on their weekly ads, flash sale emails and sign up for a My Best Buy Rewards account for the best deals they offer. Best Buy is one of the most anticipated Black Friday ads every year but we're here to help you save year round!

Best Buy Price Match
Best Buy Price Match Best buy offers a price match guarantee both in-store and online. They match local competitors both online and in-store as well as online retailers such as Amazon. The item you are price matching has to be identical to the competitors and has to be in-stock. They don't price match anything from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday. Similar to other retailers they offer quite a list of exclusions including bundle offers, contract mobile phones, hourly sales or clearance items. An added bonus to their price matching program is that if an item drops in price during the return or exchange period you can match the lowest price, just make sure you hang onto your receipt and bring it in or contact customer service for a price match.

My Best Buy Rewards Program
My Best Buy Rewards Program My Best Buy Rewards Program is a free to join tiered program that offers 0.5 points for every dollar you spend for the basic membership or more for elite & elite plus members. Once you accumulate 250 points you will earn a $5 reward certificate. My Best Buy Rewards offers members access to special sales & events, as well as a special offers section in their account. If you spend $1,500+ in a calendar year you tier up to Elite Status, you will then earn 1 point per dollar spent, receive free shipping with no minimum purchase and have an extended return & exchange window of 30 days. Spend $3,500 in a calendar year and it bumps you up to 1.25 points per dollar spent. Last year they offered the Best Buy Black Friday ad early to Elite members and My Best Buy Rewards members were able to shop the sale early!

Gamers Club Unlocked
Gamers Club Unlocked Best Buy offers a great program for gamers, Gamers Club Unlocked. It is $30 for a two-year membership and offers 20% off new video game software & game e-guides, 10% bonus trade-in credit, 10% off pre-owned video games and 2x points on video game software, digital content and accessories. These discounts are automatically applied when you are logged into your account online and in-store if you give them your phone number linked to your account. If you plan on purchasing two or more new release games from Best Buy in the next two years the discount generally pays for itself.

Best Buy Outlet Buys
Best Buy Outlet Buys Visit the outlet page to find Clearance, Open-box, Refurbished, and Pre-owned items. All items in this section are backed by their return and exchange policy which starts with a 15 day exchange period. Any pre-owned video games sold carry the same warranty as if they were purchased new. Knowing what each of these categories mean can help you make the best decision when purchasing from the outlet. Clearance items are brand new items with a discounted price, Open-Box are items that have been returned or grouped with new products, Refurbished products have been repaired to a like-new state and Pre-owned products are used products verified to work. Any item that is included in those categories will have the condition listed in the item name so you can clearly see what you are purchasing.

Best Buy Student Discounts
Best Buy Student Discounts Students can sign up for Best Buy's student deals once they create a My Best Buy account. They will then receive exclusive coupon codes that can be redeemed in-store or online. Offers change periodically so make sure to check out the Student Deals page often if you qualify for the discounts.

If you've taken advantage of some of these offers you know how great they can be. Keep in mind Best Buy also offers a daily deal and their ad changes weekly. We're always looking for more advice on how to save at our favorite stores so let us know in the comments if you know any other ways to save!
