The Store Pickup Plus program consists of the following capabilities:
Store Pickup: Buy online, skip the shipping charge and pick up an order in as little as 45 minutes after placing it.
Ship-To-Store: Out-of-stock products that are available online can be shipped to any Best Buy store for customer pickup, without any shipping fees.
Friends & Family Pickup: Place an order online and have someone else pick it up, avoiding an inconvenient trip to the store or giving an out-of-town relative immediate access to a purchase.
Warehouse Pickup: Avoid delivery charges and scheduling conflicts by picking up products directly from a local Best Buy warehouse. This is an expedient option for appliance purchases and same-day pickup.
