If you’re looking to buy a new Chromebook, one of the best places to look is Best Buy. They consistently have Chromebooks in stock with listings that aren’t confusing like Amazon and they have actual brick-and-mortar stores in many cities where you can go to get hands-on with the device that you are considering buying. And now Best Buy is offering a new suite of membership options, similar to Amazon Prime and Walmart+, under the banner of My Best Buy Memberships that can get you exclusive sales and deals on Chromebooks and all kinds of other tech; along with free 2-day shipping and discounts on protection plans.
Designed to offer more choices and flexibility, Best Buy says the three membership tiers cater to a wide range of customer needs, budgets, and lifestyles. Patrick McGinnis, SVP of Memberships at Best Buy, said, “We’ve learned a tremendous amount from our members over the last couple of years, especially that different customers value very different benefits when it comes to their technology.”
The new membership tiers are an evolution of Best Buy’s existing Totaltech membership, which launched in 2021. Best Buy says that Totaltech members have shown higher engagement and satisfaction rates, particularly in the area of tech support. As part of the launch on June 27, the existing Totaltech membership has been transitioned to My Best Buy Total. Current Totaltech members should have received an email with more details and will have the option to transition between the new tiers or cancel their membership if their tech needs change.
