Best Buy is offering free shipping on every order starting 10/25.

The retailer said it will also offer free Geek Squad setup on many products on its top tech gifts list, which includes ultrahigh-definition TVs. Other items on the list include iPads, Bose noise-canceling headphones, MacBooks, and the Microsoft Surface.

 
For the first time, Best Buy will also allow customers to give an hour of in-home tech setup and support from its Geek Squad services as a gift.
 
Finally, Best Buy won’t wait until Black Friday to trot out its holiday deals. It will hold shopping events in 400 stores on November 7 where the first 100 customers will get a free tech gift. The retailer will also offer “Black Friday-like deals” in all stores that day.

Best Buy has momentum heading into the holiday season as a turnaround spearheaded by CEO Hubert Joly has gains traction. The company is also benefiting from a shift in consumer spending toward big ticket items for the home as home prices rise. An explosion of new gadgets like Apple watch, which is being sold in all Best Buy stores, has also helped.

That'll be great for black Friday game deals and random sales were I don't have to worry about getting to $35 anymore or hope it has store pick up.

I don't know man... I got a lot of credit to spend at Amazon and while my Prime trial expires on the 20th of next month(why not the end!!!!!!) I may buy enough crap that I get free shipping anyway.

Best Buy and Amazon are my top 2. So unless someone comes in with better deals...you know.

Of course this gets moved in 3 minutes, but the PSN flash sale stays up for 3 days after it ended, lol.

Um...wow. I don't really factor into this since I'm Elite Plus through February, but this is a pretty bold move on Best Buy's part.

Time to start buying everything on the site $5 or less & click "Ship separately"!

Best Buy doesn't have a ship separately option.

I hope this applies retroactively to preorders delivered within the period.

WOW this is really really interesting..I bought a TV last week from Best Buy in store and they delivered it a few days ago..when it says on their site that geek squad will come to your house do they mean they can put it on the wall for you? This TV was for my brother so he needs a new TV Stand, if we buy a new TV Stand this weekend will best buy geek squad come to the house and put it together for free?

Seems according to the site black friday deals will be starting on November 7th I hope they showcase their XBOX ONE deals I am trading in my XBOX ONE this weekend to Gamestop I wonder if they offer gift cards in store for best buy that way I can just the system at best buy instead

Bold and potentially smart move on Best Buy's part. I already have free shipping so it changes nothing for me.

This is great news!  I was hoping another major retailer like Best Buy would copy Target's free-shipping-on-any-order deal they had around BF last year.  Now let's hope Target does it again this year and some other stores follow suit!

Geek squad isn't a furniture building department.

How about mounting the TV on the wall I know they do that just wasn't sure if that is part of the promo
