While thankful for your service, Best Buy does not offer a standard military discount on its products. However, the policy can vary in stores at different locations, so you should always ask an associate before you pay to see if they will take 10% off.
Military families can save on Geek Squad services as well, so be sure to ask what the discount applies to and have your ID ready.
Even though Best Buy doesn’t have a military discount, we’ve identified four ways you can save at least 10% or more on your next purchase. Let’s take a look.
1. Check for Current Best Buy Sales Online
Because Best Buy knows that shoppers want quality electronics and appliances at affordable prices, the store regularly provides sales on its inventory. Even if your local store doesn’t issue a 10% military discount, you can save by shopping the sales.
Our proprietary deal engine has taken the guesswork out of saving — it searches the web for the best offers and updates our list of top offers every hour.
Here are today's sales to save you 10% or more:
Join the Best Buy Mover's Program and get 10% Off All Items.
This Week's Sales, Clearance Items, Events and Free Shipping Offers. Save up to 65% on laptops, cameras, tablets and more.
Up to 30% off on Select Small Appliances and Free Shipping.
2. Stack Sitewide Codes for Deeper Discounts
In addition to great sales on particular items, we seek out sitewide promotions that allow you to stack deals for more savings. For example, you can take advantage of 10% off video games and use a special code for something like Free Shipping on Veterans Day.
At DealCrunch, we add these kinds of offers to our site hourly too, so check our BestBuy store page daily for sitewide offers.
3. Browse Best Buy’s Weekly Ad
Another way to save big at Best Buy is to browse the weekly ad online at BestBuy.com and see what will soon be on sale.
Simply click the Weekly Ad link at the top to reveal the current discounts. Be sure to change your location so you can preview what’s on sale at your nearest Best Buy.
4. Sign Up for Exclusive Promotions
You can get exclusive offers sent directly to your inbox if you sign up for Best Buy promotional emails. Scroll to the bottom of BestBuy.com, enter your email address, and click “sign up.”
Soon you’ll receive emails alerting you to new weekly ads, the Deal of the Day offer, and other sales and promotions. Many times the emails Best Buy sends to subscribers will be exclusive to members or even just early access to specials such as holiday sales. If you;re a subscriber, checking your inbox before checkout is definitely worthwhile.
No Military Discount? No Problem
Unfortunately, Best Buy doesn’t have a universal military discount. While it’s still worthwhile to ask your local store for the 10% off, it isn’t written into the policy, meaning your store may not provide you the discount.
However, you can save at least 10% by simply checking the offers on our Best Buy store page before checkout. We update our list of sales, promo codes, and sitewide offers every hour to help you save on your next Best Buy purchase.
