Thanks to Best Buy for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
Post Holiday Tech Gift Reality Check
Getting new stuff is a ton of fun. But getting it all set up, is not. The intentions are there but the confusion is real. Once upon a time you just had to cut ten thousand twist and zip ties, toss the packaging, and plug your boom box in. The packaging is getting better, but the set up process is more complex.
Be honest. Have you plugged in, set up, and installed your holiday tech gifts? Does that include downloading the app, updating your linked devices and signing into the cloud services?
I’m the resident tech adopter/installer in my home. I read the instructions and figure out the remotes before I even unbox my new purchases. Smart thermostats, Alexa enabled speakers, smart watches and appliances with built in social media. I’m all in. But I’m a little exhausted.
My enthusiasm for my new tech stuff is somewhere between infectious and obnoxious.
Even being fairly proficient, there are certain installs that are out of our depth. That’s when I am glad that Best Buy offers Total Tech support. It’s a great value when you take into consideration how inexpensive it is to get the help you need when you need it. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional help.
Best Buy’s Total Tech Support is a Great Value
There are many included services and savings included: Most notable are the $49.99 in-home services. I cannot usually even get someone to come to my house and confirm that something is not working for less than a hundred dollars. This is a steal for installations.
There’s also a 20% savings on repairs, and protection plans (Geek Squad Protection and AppleCare Products)
Best Buy’s Total Tech Support is an Easy 24/7 Support Solution:
Wherever you are, whenever you need help, it is easy to connect in-store, over the phone, or chat/remote online. This means you are never without a lifeline. You can get support when, where and how you want it.

Yep, that’s right. Total Tech support for all the tech in your home… even the stuff you did not get at Best Buy.
Dishwasher, Over the range microwave, Gas appliances (dryer & range), and garbage disposal installations are all $49.99 each with Total Tech Support
Basic data transfer & data back up, computer setup, computer tune up, virus removal, and 1 year of internet security software are all included with Total Tech Support membership. This is super important to us. We tend to pick up computer viruses.
In-dash stereo or navigation install, speaker install, remote start or keyless entry install, and amp install are all included with Total Tech Support membership. That’s great to know when it comes time to upgrading our older cars.
TV Connect, TV Mounting, Basic Audio installation, harmony remote setup, cord cutting, and TV Calibration are all $49.99 each with Total Tech Support membership. I like to schedule this stuff for when everyone is home so we can all learn which buttons to press to watch our shows!
Home Wi-Fi setup, voice assistant setup, Wi-Fi camera install, smart lighting setup and customization, smart doorbell install, and smart thermostat install all $49.99 each with Total Tech Support membership.
The smart home stuff is something I am definitely getting on this year. This is the year that we are determined to get everything from our video doorbell to our thermostat and smart bulbs, fully up and running. We can’t wait to reap the savings from our investments in this tech!
Tech makes our lives more simple, but integrating all our household tech devices can be a full time job. Some things are better left to the pros. Don’t let a fear of installation and set up keep you from fully enjoying your tech. Get it all up and running this year, no matter where you got it!
