We’ve been ramping up our Black Friday coverage lately as the year’s biggest shopping event is just over a month away. Our guides focused Amazon, Target, Best Buy and many more are designed to help you plan for Black Friday as we get closer. Today we’re focusing on B&H Black Friday, which has historically been one of the best places for under-the-radar deals. But a big change to some of B&H’s policies this year may make consumers more wary.
When is Black Friday at B&H?
B&H doesn’t honor Black Friday in the traditional sense. In fact, last year it was one of the first retailers to start launching pre-Black Friday sales. Instead of the usual Thanksgiving launch, B&H will start rolling out deals over a week in advance.
When will the B&H Black Friday ad be released?
Historically B&H doesn’t put out a conventional Black Friday ad. We’ll get a whiff of its plans by the middle of November but don’t expect to see a multi-page digital ad. A lot of that has to do with B&H’s limited brick and mortar presence as a primarily online-only retailer.
B&H Free Shipping
B&H has one of the best free shipping policies of any Black Friday retailer. Free 3-7 day standard shipping is available on nearly all orders. But where B&H really shines is offering free expedited shipping on orders of $49 or more. That equates to 1-day and 2-day delivery in roughly 50% of the United States. This Prime-like perk makes B&H one of the best places to buy new gear if you’re in a time pinch.
How to save at B&H Black Friday
A big change in 2018 has eliminated one of the biggest perks of shopping at B&H. Previously, shoppers outside of New York and New Jersey did not owe taxes on purchases until the end of the year. That perk has now come to an end thanks to new legislation from Congress.
With that trick now eliminated, B&H is much like any other online retailer. They will offer all of the usual manufacturer discounts but don’t count on B&H going much further on this year’s hottest tech.
Will there be B&H Doorbusters?
The B&H Deal Zone delivers daily offers on various products. That’s where you’ll find B&H’s equivalent of doorbusters on Black Friday. We’re certain that these deals will sell out quickly. Consider bookmarking this page to stay up to date on all of the best deals at B&H.
Will B&H price match competitors on Black Friday?
Yes, B&H does price match competitors. You’ll need to contact customer service to remedy any differences in prices. Learn more on B&H’s about us page.
What will be on sale at B&H Black Friday?
Just about anything that’s tech-related. B&H offers a wide range of electronics but is known as one of the best places to find deals on high-end cameras, audio gear and more. If you’re looking to upgrade to pro-level gear, consider B&H as your primary retailer this Black Friday.
