Move over, Amazon Prime Day: Best Buy is about to launch its own birthday sale that promises to rival Black Friday.

Announced on Thursday, it’s called the 50-Hour Anniversary Sale and will lead up to the 50th anniversary of Best Buy’s first store opening on Aug. 22, 1966.

The sale starts at 10 p.m. CT Thursday and runs through 11:59 p.m. CT Saturday.

It promises “50 Black Friday-like deals on the latest technology,” with “nearly all” of the deals available in stores and online — “while supplies last,” that is.

Nearly all of the deals will also come with free two-day shipping if bought online. Best Buy’s shipping policy provides for free two-day shipping on many orders of at least $35.
