Although Best Buy is more commonly known for its TV sales, the big box retailer is no stranger to laptop deals.
Below we're rounding up the retailer's best deals and offering some tips on how to navigate its sales and save the most money possible.
Best Buy Membership & Perks
Best Buy offers three membership tiers with different perks. Its complimentary "My Best Buy" membership gives you free shipping on purchases of $35 or more, rewards points, early access to deals, and a special birthday discount. "My Best Buy Elite" and "My Best Buy Elite Plus" memberships require that you spend $1,500 and $3,500 per year in purchases, respectively. Perks of these memberships include longer return/exchange periods and free shipping with scheduled delivery.
If you have a valid .edu e-mail address, sign up for Best Buy's Student Deals newsletter and you'll get a special coupon code that stacks on sale prices for additional savings. You'll also get access to other exclusive, student-only savings. The student savings are especially handy during Black Friday, when you can use them to take an extra $50 to $100 off already-discounted priced. Otherwise, you can expect to see student deals like 10 percent off Pixelbooks, $150 off Surface devices, or an extra $100 off select laptops. All student deals are marked as such.
