Black Friday Shopping Tips and Trick for Customers

  • Get a sneak peek at exclusive deals - Check out the Black Friday ad on for the inside scoop on the hottest deals and in-store specials. 
  • Bring a Buddy - The pure biology of lining up outside a store for hours or days requires a partner to allow for breaks. Wrangle a friend or make friends in line. Bring snacks to share and be neighborly, and hope friendly line-mates are willing to negotiate line-holding strategies in the event that nature calls.

·         Prepare for the Elements - Being the first in line might mean 24 to 48 hours before the store opens, which means sleeping on the sidewalk. Be prepared and treat it like an urban camping trip. Bring a tent, chairs, sleeping bags, blankets, flashlights - literally anything needed for camping. If camping above the Mason Dixon line, think about bringing along hand warmers and foot warmers. Check the weather ahead of time. 

·         Etiquette - After hours or days in line with total strangers, you will discover that civility is extremely important. There is a certain etiquette you should follow to make it as pleasant as possible.

  • If holding a place in line for someone else, let line-mates know ahead of time, so no one is surprised when the entire extended family shows up an hour before the store opens. Remember, people count heads before they decide to join the line.
  • If needing to leave the line, make sure to tell line-mates when you are coming back.
  • If making a coffee or food run, offer to pick something up for fellow best friends in line. It fosters good will, and more importantly, they'll most likely return the favor later.
  • Most importantly, when the doors do finally open, stay calm. Try to be patient and understanding with fellow customers and the store employees. With so much anticipation for that moment, it's easy to throw all that goodwill out the window.
  • Read the fine print - Big doorbuster items will have limited quantities, so get in line early. Black Friday ads should indicate the quantity guaranteed to be in stock. The best retailers to hit are the ones who pass out tickets (like Best Buy does), so consumers don't have to stress out once the doors open. Also, be sure to read those coupons carefully. Some of them are only valid for certain hours or for very specific items. Because some restrictions almost always apply.
  • Get the app - With the Best Buy mobile app, create a holiday wish list from a smart phone to share with friends and family.  For the iPhone and Android, this free app enhances the shopping experience and allows users to compare products and even scan in-store product QR barcodes to unlock special offers and tailored content
  • Free online shipping - Bypass the lines and shop Best Buy from the comfort of home.  With free online ground shipping through Dec. 27 on hundreds of thousands of items, including all Blu-Ray, DVD movies and gaming software. The last day to place an order on for Christmas delivery is Dec. 19 at 1 p.m. (applies to standard shipping).
