Black Friday 2016, which will take place on November 25 this year, is now a little over two weeks away. While leaks had been slow this year prior to Tuesday’s election, the past 24 hours have seen ads from Walmart and Target. As expected, Best Buy is never one to let their competitors steal the spotlight. The 49-page Best Buy Black Friday 2016 ad can be seen on BestBlackFriday.com.

Best Buy’s Opening Time
As they did last year, Best Buy will begin their Black Friday sale at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving. This comes an hour earlier than Target and Walmart’s opening time of 6 p.m., and it is among the earlier openings for major retailers. Toys R Us and Macy’s will also open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving this year.
While their retail stores will not open until 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, their online site will be open for business the entire day. The sale will continue throughout the night into Black Friday. If history repeats itself, Best Buy will likely have an assortment of sales on the Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday of Thanksgiving week too. It is unknown what time Best Buy will close on Thanksgiving night, but the ad states that Black Friday doorbusters will begin at 8 a.m., which is the same time as last year.
Best Buy Black Friday 2016 Ad Important Information and Review
As seen on the first page, Best Buy is offering an assortment of televisions. The most interesting one may be the Toshiba 49-inch Class LED 2160p 4K Ultra HD TV. It will be on sale for $199.99, which is a discount of $250 from its normal retail price of $449.99. This deal is in-store only, which is somewhat surprising with the trend of retailers offering many of their doorbusters online.
Another intriguing deal is the LG 60-inch Class LED 2160p Smart 4k Ultra HD TV for $599.99, which is a discount of $400 from its normal retail price of $999.99. This deal is not listed as in-store only, so there is a good chance that you can buy it online. While this will not be the cheapest price for a 60-inch 4K HD TV this year, it does come from a premium brand in LG.
Sharp 55-inch Class LED 1080p Smart TV for $249.99
Best Buy will be selling a Sharp 55-inch Class LED 1080p Smart HD TV for $249.99, which is a savings of $250 from the normal price of $499.99. While this is not a 4K TV, it is still a solid unit. It is also unlikely that another store will beat this price for a 55-inch TV from a premium brand like Sharp. This TV is exclusive to Best Buy and will be available at 8 a.m. on Black Friday.
Other Important Deals
While these deals may not be as exciting as the ones listed above, they are ones that you should keep your eye on.

Important Best Buy Shipping Information
As reported by CNBC, Best Buy will offer free shipping on all orders with no minimum this holiday season, and that includes Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Compared to the competition, this is a great deal. Walmart currently has a free shipping minimum of $50 for online orders. Amazon has a minimum of $49, and Kohl’s will have a minimum of $75. Out of the major stores, only Target will also offer free shipping on all orders with no minimum.
While it may not sound like a huge deal, paying shipping charges on Black Friday can kill an otherwise great deal. Since shipping charges at most stores will only be added to small orders, the chances of shipping costs offsetting the discount are extremely high. As usual, Best Buy’s Black Friday 2016 is already looking strong, and it is going to be a top place to purchase you electronics this year.
