Certain Samsung items are available for pickup on the same day at Best Buy
If you’re fed up with the lengthy shipping time, Samsung is now partnering with Best Buy to offer a “Get It Today” pickup option. It allows you to purchase items from Samsung’s online store and take it home for free in just two hours at the nearest Best Buy.
Choose Samsung tablets, phones, computers, smartwatches, laptops, and portable music devices suitable for same-day pickup from Best Buy. When you’re finished with the checkout, you can choose “Get It Today” from the options for delivery or pickup and then select the closest Best Buy location. However, once you’ve entered your payment details, be aware that this option is defaulted to home delivery due to reasons that are not clear, so you’ll need to switch it back to the preferential Best Buy store.
The service is a bit similar to a Best Buy availability tracker since the Samsung devices are already at Best Buy locations where you purchase them. If you’re wondering: why don’t you walk into Best Buy and buy this Samsung device there? The primary benefit of buying the product directly through Samsung and then picking it up at the store is that you will be able to enjoy deals that are exclusive to Samsung and trade-in deals and receive your order on the next day.
It’s also important to note that even though Samsung provides complimentary same-day delivery to your door, however, it’s only available only to Dallas as well as New York City. It would be more exciting is it Samsung offered the same service across the US. Best Buy already offers same-day delivery to all of the US, which, despite not being in a position to receive a Samsung-exclusive discount, could make it an appealing alternative for those who want convenience in delivery to their house. Furthermore, Best Buy hours offers same-day pickup for all of its products, including Apple and Samsung, so Samsung providing the same service isn’t any more noteworthy. Apple itself also provides the free pick up from its stores.
Overall, the “Get It Today” feature can be useful in cases where you’d like to benefit from Samsung’s earlier Black Friday deals or another discount but don’t want to wait around for your order to be delivered to your home.
