THURSDAY night is the magic night.
After hours of documenting Best Buy’s loading and unloading schedule in more than a dozen locations, bargain hunter and YouTuber Matte Granite found the best day and time to shop.
Matt found that based on Best Buy’s restocking and delivery schedule, Thursday night is the best time to grab those deals on your favorite gadgets.
Matt shared in his video that most of their products are restocked on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Thus, at the end of the business day on Thursday, most offers and sales are published.
“If you shop on a Saturday or Sunday, you’re greeted by a lot of people and not always the discounts on the products you want in stock,” Matt said in his video.
He says Best Buy employees are doing this in order to prepare for the influx of weekend shoppers.
Matt offered a bunch of other suggestions.
Skip the geeks
The Geek Squad Protection Plan is described by Matt as a sort of upgrade to the manufacturer’s warranty offering extended coverage when the warranty ends.
The plan may work for some, but Matt says for most clients it should be a rough patch.
Some products or gadgets you buy will continue to be updated and if the item you bought breaks before the warranty, it might be better to just buy the upgraded version.
Often, because technology is changing rapidly, Geek Squad may not be able to find the right product to fix your item anyway.
Plus, most products you buy come with a warranty, so there’s no reason to buy another one.
Best Buy has great deals for college students, sometimes even better than the big companies.
Customers can save hundreds of dollars on laptops, tablets, cell phones and other gadgets.
You can shop their student deals of the day or check out their featured deals for hundreds of options to get students ready for school without breaking the bank.
