How to Get Best Buy Black Friday Doorbuster Deals?
 
 

The Best Buy Black Friday 2011 has leaked and also Best Buy already released many of their Black Friday 2011 Doorbuster deals on their site. Best Buy offers several of the best and lowest priced Black Friday 2011 deals. Highlights include a $199.99 42-inch Sharp 1080p HDTV, $179.99 Lenovo Laptop, $79.99 24-inch Dynex 1080p HDTV and $39.99 Toshiba Wi-fi ready Blu-ray player. How do you get these incredible Black Friday Doorbuster deals? Find below how the Black Friday Sale works at Best Buy and how you can score a doorbuster deal.

Best Buy is nice enough to state the minimum number of available items per store for each deal. A habit that other stores should really adopt. Best Buy has at least 10 items of each Doorbuster deal. In here lies the problem. Ten of the $199.99 Sharp TVs will be gone in the blink of an eye. Best Buy implemented a procedure so people are not killing each other over getting their hands on of their doorbuster deals.

Best Buy is this year also very clear about which doorbuster deals will be available in stores only, online only and at both. The online Best Buy Black Friday 2011 Sale starts already midnight Thanksgiving Day. Obviously try to get the deals you want already then.

Best Buy Stores will open at midnight on Black Friday, November 25. Best Buy is handing out tickets for each doorbuster deal to customers waiting in line outside the Best Buy store. Each Best Buy Store will decide when to start handing out tickets in a 2 hour window before midnight. This means you have to be there latest at 10pm. Now the problem is that you will be not alone. So when you arrive at 10pm, your are for sure not under the first ten in line and risk missing out on a ticket for the doorbuster deal you want.

To decide when to head out to your neighborhood Best Buy store to be among the first 10 in line is difficult and depends highly where you live. I suggest you go visit your local Best Buy store ahead of Black Friday and ask the friendly staff about how early customers lined up last year. Note, that the opening time has been moved ahead, which will likely have a big impact on when the first customers show up to form a line.

Additionally select Best Buy Stores will also have a free screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 starting at 9pm at the parking lot. You can find the list of stores with the Harry Potter screening here

Given all that, I think you have to be at your Best Buy Store right after work at around 6pm to be under the first 10 in line. As said it really depends where you live. For instance, last year the first people decided to camp out in front of a Best Buy starting a week before Black Friday. It even paid off for them. To get publicity, Best Buy gifted them with iPads.
Please Post in the comments below you experience on when people start to line-up at your neighborhood Best Buy in the past. 

Best Buy is only handing out 1 ticket per deal to customers. You can though get as many different deal tickets as you like. This rule makes sure nobody walks in and buys all ten $199.99 Sharp TVs. Tickets for doorbuster deals will be handed out to customers in line until they are gone.

Tickets have a time deadline for by when you must use it. This means you cannot just go home for a nap and come back in the afternoon. The deals will be gone and your ticket will be worthless. 

Last recommendation: Behave! Best Buy reserves the right to refuse to provide a ticket or service to anyone at Best Buy's sole discretion. Best Buy will cancel ticketing and line formation if customer participation is deemed unlawful by local law enforcement agencies.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
