Take advantage of earlybird deals, save with free shipping and enjoy 1-hour store pickup.

Electronics retailer Best Buy has released its Black Friday 2017 ad and along with it, launched hundreds of early holiday sales, offering deals on the latest phones, laptops, cameras, drones, kitchen appliances and more.

The early Black Friday deals sale runs from now until 11:59 CT Saturday November 11. Best Buy is also offering free shipping on purchases until Christmas. However, special order delivery items, some scheduled delivery items, and items displaying “in-store only” or “check stores” are not applicable for free shipping.

The early sale features $170 off Dell Inspiron 15.6″ touch-screen laptops at $359.99, $300 off KitchenAid Professional 500 series stand mixer for $199.99 and $100 off Sony XPERIA XZ Premium phone at just $599.99.

Be aware that Best Buy only have limited stock for the discounted products available through the early sale. The retailer warned it won’t accept call-in orders or check store availability for items showing as “sold out”.

Best Buy also has speedy 1-hour store pick-up options, although some orders require additional payment validation and can take longer to process, including televisions, large appliances, and mobile phones.

Best Buy’s Black Friday sale will begin at 5pm on Thanksgiving night (November 23). This year, stores will close at 1am and re-open on Friday, November 24, at 8am. For further information see Best Buy’s Black Friday FAQ.

The retailer’s official Black Friday ad doesn’t offer any discounts on Apple’s latest release iPhone models. However, customers can save $125 on Apple iPad Mini 4 Wi-Fi, on sale at $274.99 this Thanksgiving weekend.

Target has the lowest price we’ve seen on Apple’s 9.7″ iPad at just $249.99, offering customers an $80 discount.

Best Buy has received backlash on social media in the last few weeks after shoppers noticed the retailer had priced the iPhone X, upfront, for $1,099 (64 GB) and $1,249 (256GB), $100 higher than Apple’s own pricing.

Late last week Best Buy announced it would only sell the phone through installment billing plans at cost price.
