Are Best Buy Black Friday deals better than Walmart's?

Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon are locked in an eternal battle to be the top retailer during Black Friday, with a lot of people interested in the yellow tag brand throughout the buying period.

However, according to analysis from WalletHub, Walmart offered the better savings last year, with an average saving of 29.9% compared to 28.7% from Best Buy.

That's obviously going to be across a range of product categories, so the savings for things like electronics or outdoor goods could be better served in one brand or the other. However, your chances of getting a good deal were better with Walmart last year (and have been for the last three years) - despite 2018 seeing some of the lowest savings from the two brands in a long time.

That said, there's still a lot of love for Best Buy from the manufacturers: Parrot, the top drone maker, said in an interview with Forbes last year that “Amazon is a tremendously big e-commerce platform, and Best Buy is a tremendously big retail platform."

Michael Luke Paris, general manager for Parrot Americas, called Best Buy a 'tremendous retailer for consumer electronics' so whether you're going to go in store or online, it seems that that the brands rate the retailer as a place for the right consumers.

How can I get decent Best Buy Black Friday deals?

There are obviously two ways to buy during Black Friday and Cyber Monday - you can either go online or queue up outside. If you want to do the latter, you'll need to get there well in advance of 5PM (If the pattern follows last year) as Consumer Reports is stating that tickets were distributed for those in line.

Not everyone made it into the stores though - which would have upset some as Best Buy still keeps some of its top deals for those willing to brave the elements and give up some turkey time.

Online, it's a little easier, with the deals going live on Thanksgiving before Black Friday kicks into gear. When that happens is to be seen this year, but it's a move that could easily see you nabbing the deals you want.

Prioritize the items you want most and the ones with the largest amount of savings, so you can get to them before they sell out and maximize your savings on Cyber Monday.

Pay close attention to the dates listed on deals. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have grown into something of a week-long affair in recent years, so see if any deals start earlier, be sure to go for the ones you want as soon as you can

If you pay attention to product reviews, and you know exactly the product you want, make sure to check model numbers when you’re in the store. 

Black Friday can come with some special models made just for the shopping day, and a 55-inch Sony 4K TV you find on the shelf this Black Friday might not be the same as the one you read all the glowing reviews about.

If you find a Best Buy Black Friday deal you want, try to determine if it will also be online. Competition in stores can make it hard to get in the door and snag the product you want before it sells out, so having the internet as a backup (or even primary) method of getting the product may help you land the deals you’re most excited about.

If you plan to shop mostly online, a VPN may help you avoid internet congestion. Too many people going to the same website to get the same deals can result in next to no one actually reaching the page. With a VPN, you can route your traffic to a different region that may not have servers so busy, allowing you to essentially beat the line.

Finally, if you've found a deal that you absolutely have to have, don't sit around. Popular products sell out quickly on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so buy what you want before it’s gone.
