Want Black Friday prices on a new TV? You don’t have to wait until November — if you shop at Best Buy through Sunday.
Purchase specific premium TVs or home theater products this week and the retailer promises to refund any difference between your purchase price and the eventual Black Friday sale price.
In other words, if you buy an eligible TV through Oct. 20 and the price drops after you buy it but before Dec. 1, Best Buy will match the lower price by refunding you the difference.
This Black Friday Pricing Guarantee applies only to products included in Best Buy’s Magnolia Anniversary Sale, which are listed at the Best Buy website.
There is one other small catch: You must be a member of the My Best Buy rewards program — which we detail in “10 Retailers That Give You Rewards on Every Purchase.” Joining My Best Buy is free.
Saving money for Black Friday
Best Buy’s offer might get you thinking about Black Friday, which is just over six weeks away. That’s not a lot of time to save up for the annual shopping frenzy that falls the day after Thanksgiving.
So, if you haven’t started saving for Black Friday, time is running out. One way to get a quick infusion of cash is to look to your insurance policies.
As we report in “11 Ways to Save $500 Before Black Friday:”
“Increasing your deductible from $250 to $1,000 on your car or homeowners insurance policy could put a couple hundred bucks in your pocket. A deductible is the amount of money you agree to pay on an insurance claim before your coverage kicks in. Having a higher deductible on your policy usually means you’ll pay a lower premium.”
Of course, this is not to say that the best use for that couple hundred bucks in savings is to put it toward a premium TV.
