Best Buy offers a number of ways to save in stores, including a weekly ad accessible through BestBuy.com, a price match guarantee and a special selection of college student deals for individuals with valid .edu email accounts as of 2015. Printable coupons valid at Best Buy retail locations are available from large third-party discount sites such as Offers.com and DealCatcher.com.
Third-party sites such as Offers.com offer coupons that may have expired or be extremely specific, so they may not always work. Past offers have included a 20-percent discount on a seasonal item and 15 percent off tech support services. These sites also link frequently to Best Buy's own online sales and promotions.
Best Buy's weekly ads are valid at all locations as of 2015. Best Buy customers with valid .edu email addresses may sign up to receive special offers on the website. Typically, discounts between $50 and $200 can be expected, depending on the item. Best Buy also offers savings to students of any age. All student discounts are valid both in stores and online.
Best Buy's price guarantee can be accessed in two ways: customers may call an 800 number and direct the sales associate to the competitor's price they wish the store to match, or the can receive help in stores. Either way, the program does not include competitor's promotions of short durations, marketplace items or the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period. Only some stores are designated as competitors for the purpose of this promotion.
