Along with 24/7 technical support, free shipping, and an extended return period, Best Buy Beta members can enjoy a 2-year warranty on select items (including Apple products), exclusive pricing, 10% off subscriptions ordered through Best Buy, and free installation for some products and devices. When combined with a Best Buy credit card and My Best Buy points, the new Best Buy Beta program can save you a ton of money if you call for technical support regularly, buy a bunch of high-ticket items, or plan to buy all your to replace items. appliances.
Best Buy is testing its new Beta membership at select stores in Iowa, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma. If you live in those states, chances are you can try Best Buy Beta today. People in Minnesota, North Carolina, and Tennessee may get the chance to try Best Buy Beta later this month, but again, it depends what city you live in.
Technically, the Best Buy Beta program isn’t all that different from Best Buy’s $ 200 Total Tech Support plan. Best Buy Beta could eventually replace Total Tech Support, which doesn’t appear to be available in areas trying out the Best Buy Beta plan.
While Best Buy Beta may appeal to tech geek Geek Squad addicts, the program costs nearly $ 100 more than Amazon Prime or Walmart +. While Best Buy Beta can save you money on high-priced items, appliance installation, and late-night tech support, it won’t help you save on things like grocery delivery. Until it’s available in more areas, it’s hard to say who Best Buy Beta will benefit from.
