Q: What time does the event start?
A: An official start time is not announced in the hopes of preventing a ton of traffic on BestBuy.com at one time. Just picture those images we see on the news where hundreds of people are trying to fit through a store's door on Black Friday. It can really slow things down for everyone involved. You will want to periodically check BestBuy.com on 11/20/2017 between midnight and 5 AM central time.
