Best Black Friday Deals at Best Buy

The electronics retailer has deep discounts on televisions, gaming consoles, blu-ray players and computers.

If your goal is to find the lowest prices on top electronics brands, you'll want to check out Best Buy's Black Friday sale that kicks off in stores at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Some deeply discounted doorbuster deals, which will be in limited supply, will require a ticket to purchase. Tickets will be given out at most stores on Thursday before doors open. Many Black Friday bargains, including some doorbusters, will also be available online at BestBuy.com. See Best Buy's Black Friday ad for more details.
