ABOUT BEST BUY CANADA
Consumer electronics are a hot category when it comes to getting deals. Everyone wants a good price on their cameras, phones, TVs and computers without compromising the store's reputation or their customer service. Best Buy has been giving customers what they want for almost half a century, selling everything from video games to refrigerators at highly competitive prices.
Founded in 1966, the retailer initially started out as an audio specialty store. Eventually expanding to include a wider range of consumer electronics, Best Buy has become an electronics giant with locations in the US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and China. With annual sales totaling over $40 billion dollars, the company is doing something right in the face of tremendous competition in the electronics category.
Competing with stores like Future Shop, Tiger Direct and The Source, Best Buy is always working to stay ahead of the game, by offering customers a wider selection of items and a steady offering of deals and promos. Best Buy's major departments include: TV & Home Theatre, Cameras & Camcorders, Computers, Tablets & eReaders and Cell Phones. Yet the shopping doesn't stop there. Best Buy's ever-expanding offering has recently grown to include furniture, mattresses, large appliances and even children's clothing!
With such a large selection of goods, not all items can be found in-store. BestBuy.ca offers shoppers the same great shopping experience, but with access to many of the items not carried in the brick-and-mortar locations. The site is user-friendly and easy to navigate, featuring plenty of detailed info on all products. Shop popular brands like Sony, Xerox, Casio, Samsung, Microsoft, LG and compare the prices!
Aside from their products, Best Buy offers shoppers a variety of useful services that are worth a look. Their highly popular Geek Squad program offers customers help with their electronics, from set-up to troubleshooting. Other popular services include an electronics recycling initiative and a trade-in program that allows customers to bring in their used electronics for store credit.
You've got plenty of options when it comes to buying your electronics, with companies of all sizes competing for your hard-earned cash. What does this mean for you? It means plenty of sales and promos and quite a few options when it comes to ways you can save:
- Weekly Flyer: Best Buy puts out a weekly flyer covering their best deals and promos. Save up to 75% on products ranging from home appliances to video games. Look for the flyers in your weekly flyer bundle (if you get one!) or online at BestBuy.ca
- Clearance Outlet: Best Buy sends items to the clearance outlet if they've been discontinued, overstocked or have been replaced by newer models. You'll find some amazing deals in this popular department. New items are added all the time, so check back often!
- Refurbished Outlet: Second chances mean great savings in the refurbished outlet.
