Best Buy is hosting a series of three holiday live shopping events in collaboration with a leading livestream platform.
The consumer electronics chain is partnering with TalkShopLive to broadcast livestream events on its TalkShopLive channel, beginning at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1. The programs will be hosted by Best Buy virtual sales experts who normally assist customers through video, audio, and chat.
Each show will feature technology items from some of Best Buy's newest categories like beauty and wellness, e-transportation, outdoor living, and pet tech, as well as some non-technology items. During each broadcast, viewers will see some limited-time deals and one viewer will have a chance to win a $200 Best Buy gift card.
The three livestream shopping events include:
Beauty and Wellness Holiday Gifting – Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. ET
E-transportation and Outdoor Living Holiday Gifting – Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET
Yes, Best Buy Sells That – Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. ET
