Best Buy Black Friday 2022 Sale & Ad – What to Expect

Updated on Friday September 23, 2022: We’re still working on getting Best Buy’s Black Friday 2022 sale details before anyone else does — including securing a copy of their official ad, verifying the sale dates and confirming this year’s doorbuster deals. However, because we’ve been tracking their sales for a number of years now, we pretty much know what to expect. Here’s a look of what you’ll likely see (our predictions are based on Best Buy’s historical trends):

  • Following a pre-BF sale, Best Buy’s main set of Black Friday deals are expected to launch a full week before Black Friday itself (that’s on Friday November 18, 2022) and end on Saturday, the day after Black Friday. However keep your eyes open for two new sets of 1-day doorbuster deals to likely come on Thanksgiving Day and then again on Black Friday.
  • Best Buy’s Black Friday ad last year was only 6 pages long, while the year before that it was 22 pages long.
  • For the last two years during the pandemic, all stores have been closed on Thanksgiving day itself. We’re seeing this trend continue among many big-box retailers here in 2022, likely including Best Buy as well. All stores nationwide typically reopen at 5:00AM on Friday morning.
  • As you would expect, you’ll find items on sale from all categories across the store. That includes TV’s, laptops, small kitchen appliances, major appliances, personal electronics and games/gaming systems.
  • You can scroll down the page to view last year’s ad to get a general idea of the type of offers that they typically run (it’s likely that we’ll see similar items and deals return again here in 2022).

As always, the latest Black Friday news will be posted as soon as we get it. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back again soon for more updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.


Black Friday 2022 Start & End Dates

This is now the 11th consecutive year that we’ve been tracking Best Buy’s Black Friday sales; when it comes to their sale dates, a similar sales schedule repeats itself from year to year with a month of deals expected throughout November. Here is the Black Friday and holiday sales schedule for 2022 that we are predicting:

  • Expected pre-BF “Prices Guaranteed” offer: Be on the lookout for deals that are guaranteed to not be priced for less on Black Friday beginning November 1, 2022.
  • Expected main Black Friday sale start date: Friday November 18, 2022 (that’s a week before Black Friday).
  • Expected 1-day only Thanksgiving day deals: Thursday November 24, 2022 online only (that’s on Thanksgiving day). All Best Buy stores nationwide are expected to be closed ALL DAY for the 3rd year in a row on Thanksgiving day itself.
  • Expected 1-day only Black Friday doorbuster deals: Friday November 25, 2022 online and in limited capacity in-stores. Stores expected to open at 5:00AM.
  • Expected Black Friday sale end date: Friday November 25, 2022 or while in-stock supplies last.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale: Saturday-Monday November 26-28, 2022.

Our Favorite Deals for 2022

From all the Black Friday ads that we track, the ones at Best Buy are among our favorites. Here’s our list of things that you should keep an eye out for over Thanksgiving weekend:

  • Televisions — During these last few years, TV’s have been featured at all of the big box stores including Target, Walmart, Costco, and BJ’s. That’s probably because each year the quality keeps getting better and the prices keep falling. This year is expected to be no different. Last year Best Buy featured 50” Insignia LED 4K SmartFire TV for just $149.99. They also had a 75” Samsung QLED TV on sale for $1197.99 and a cheaper TCL 75” 4K UHD LED TV on sale for $499.99.
  • Computers/Tablets — I remember back about ten years ago when folks would camp out in front of Best Buy for days to be able to pick up on of their doorbuster laptops on sale. Although those days are now over, the laptop deals are still some of the best you’ll find on Black Friday. Be on the lookout for both low-end ones on sale for under $200, like last year’s 11” HP Chromebook on sale for just $149, and premium ones on sale like select Apple MacBook Pro’s for up to $250 off.
  • Games — Now that the Coronavirus pandemic is keeping us indoors more, sales of gaming consoles have soared this last year. On top of that, we’ve got the all new PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles that we’re just released late last year. And while last holiday season it was nearly impossible to find either of these on sale, this Thanksgiving weekend is when are expecting to see both availability and bundled bargains. If you’re still sticking to your older system, then deals on PS4, Xbox One S and Nintendo Switch games are expected as well.
  • Small Kitchen Appliances — Are you finding yourself cooking at home much more than ever before? Then you’re not alone as COVID-19 has forced many of us to stop eating out on the town as much. I know that as I began cooking more home meals this year, especially for the kids that are now at home, I realized how much I was missing some critical kitchen appliances. Be on the lookout for deals this holiday weekend on KitchenAid mixers, Ninja blenders and Instant Pot slow cookers. Best Buy typically also features specials on cleaning items such as iRobot Roomba and Dyson vacuums.
  • Gift Cards — Some of the best Christmas gifts are the ones we choose ourselves. That’s why gift cards are so popular, especially for the loved ones in our life that are impossible to buy for. But forget about paying face-value for gift cards, Best Buy usually has a number of different ones that are discounted. Last year Apple App Store and iTunes gift cards were 20% off on $100 and others like Domino’s Pizza and Showtime were 15% off the face value.

  1. I want to buy a tv for my newly remodeled basement. Sony 65” OLED would be great but waiting for an even better deal than what they offer right now. I can’t spend more than $1.5k.

  2. I’m looking to upgrade to xBox One X… I’m hoping Best Buy’s Black Friday bundles deals are better than last year.
