NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards will be arriving at select stores soon. Since their launch last September, the GeForce RTX 30 Series has been the most sought-after PC component we have seen. These have received high praise for many reasons including the impressive performance improvements they bring to demanding applications like the fast paced, incredibly complex PC games, delivering higher resolutions at higher frame rates than ever before.
Best Buy will soon start offering a limited number of GeForce RTX Series graphics cards in-store only at select Best Buy locations. This article will detail the process to purchase one for yourself. Below you will find a selection of stores that will get a small assortment of cards and the dates when these will be available. Selection and quantities will vary by store.
What happens when you arrive at a Best Buy Store
Customers will find a queue set up outside the stores listed below prior to store opening times (visit this link for hours of operation of a store near you). Note that social distancing will be expected while waiting in line.
Employees at participating stores will hand out tickets, one per customer / per household on the morning of the date shown below.1 We’ll have as many tickets as graphics cards available at each store, which means if a customer gets a ticket, they will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase a graphics card inside the store once the store opens on the day of the sale.
RTX 30 series graphics cards are limited to one per customer / per household.2 As stated above, selection will vary by store and we provide no assurances about any particular make or model being available at any particular store on the day of the sale.
