Beta Testing Area

Status: Tell Us More

I am a consistent BestBuy customer and have went to many retail locations to buy everything from headphones to new TVs. I love the fact that BestBuy is always stocked with the latest and greatest technologies however I think it would be a huge value add for them to add emphasis on upcoming innovations as well. 


If BestBuy allocates a small portion of space in its retail locations to displaying extremely innovative technologies that are yet to be released or have literally just been brought to market I think it would draw more attention to the stores and lead to more in-person traffic. This area could be dedicated to things like beta testing upcoming technology, displaying the designs for new innovations, and more. This would get people talking and make BestBuy a destination as well as get customers to come back and hopefully purchase the item at a later time when it's released. An example of this would be having a beta testing area for Google's new cloud based gaming innovation called Stadia. Many people want to try it but simply do not have access and I know for a fact that I would drive to a local BestBuy in order to get the experience of trying Stadia and seeing how it performs. This could lead me to purchasing something else in the store too that I didn't even intend on getting when I walked in.

Personally I love checking out new technology.  The idea has great merit.


However, I don't see it becoming much of a reality with Best Buy unless the Brand itself show cases it.


Sony in the past has showcased emerging technology as well as Samsung.
