My Best Buy and exclusive deals

One of the main perks of Best Buy's new membership program is access to exclusive deals and sales for those on the My Best Buy Plus and My Best Buy Total tiers.

Unlike similar members-only retail events such as Amazon Prime Day, exclusive offers and savings are available to My Best Buy members all year round across laptops, TVs, appliances, video games and more.

You can jump through to view all the Best Buy members-only deals right here to see if there's anything that grabs you now, or if it tempts you to sign up. Just know that these deals change all the time, so might not be available at a later date.

And while offers are available regularly, the retailer does also run some limited-time sales for My Best Buy members. These are more similar to the likes of Prime Day and Walmart Plus Weekend with bigger reductions and a greater volume of deals for a much shorter time period.

Lastly, you also get early access to the major retail events with your membership. That means a headstart on the Labor Day sales and all-important Black Friday deals at the end of the year so you don't miss out on the biggest bargains.

What happens to Best Buy Totaltech members?

For those of you that were previously on the retailer's Best Buy Totaltech membership, you should have received an email about the relaunch. It states that from June 27 you should have been automatically moved over to the highest tier in the new membership program until your current renewal date.

If this applies to you but you aren't on the new My Best Buy membership program then it's worth contacting the retailer directly to resolve the issue.
