Hot online deals and special shipping offers make Best Buy the holiday shopping destination

BURNABY, BC, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - With less than two weeks to go before Christmas, Best Buy is helping ease the pressure for consumers who haven't yet completed their holiday shopping with last minute gift ideas and hot online offers. From free standard shipping on all product orders over $39 and "Deals of the Day," to online only Boxing Day specials, Best Buy provides customers with an engaging and convenient shopping experience throughout the holiday season.

"We know our customers are pressed for time and want to make the most of this holiday season - especially this year," said Mary Ann McKenzie "Our Blue Shirts are knowledgeable experts who are ready to help consumers make extensive electronics options and features decipherable, while providing creative advice about the right gifts for everyone on your list."

Gifts for Everyone

According to the Consumer Electronic Association (CEA), 80 per cent of consumers plan to buy consumer electronics this holiday season. Following is a sampling of suggestions from Best Buy Canada:

Fashionista: The hottest cameras, phones, gadgets and accessories in popular colors like purple, pink and green will be sure to connect the Fashionista to her world in style. The Apple iPod Nano has a larger display, video camera and a pedometer for keeping track of those music-motivated work outs. A Sony e-Reader in metallic pink will help to get her reading in on the long commute.

Movie and TV Fanatic: The latest home theater options will give the men in your life a larger-than-life spectator experience. Go all-out with the new, ultra-thin Samsung 46" LED-LCD HDTV and all-in-one Rocketfish(TM) with Rocketboost(TM) Expandable Wireless Audio package. Or, for the guy on-the-go, the Dynex(R) Widescreen Portable DVD player is a great gift along with stocking-stuffer selections of Blu-ray discs with widescreen.

Young Gamer: You'll be sure to score big points with the kids by gifting the latest gaming systems and accessories. The younger generation will flip for the next-generation Nintendo Wii gaming system with a motion-sensitive controller or Microsoft - Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle. Popular family-friendly games like Beatles Rock Band, DJ Hero, PS3 and Wii Sports Resort will keep the gang entertained way beyond the holiday season.

Gift Cards - The Ultimate Last Second Solution

With no expiration dates or maintenance fees, Best Buy gift cards are easy to give, use and manage. A variety of festive holiday designs, from a gift card that can be used as a portable MP3 player speaker, to eco-friendly options can be purchased and redeemed in stores and online at
