Select in-store pickup (limited locations) to save on the $70 shipping charge (it's a flat $70 shipping charge whether you buy one or the pair). Even with the additional shipping charge, it's still a pretty good deal (especially if you purchase both, which effectively halves the shipping rate per item).
Both models have received positive reviews and the nice thing is that you don't have to buy them as a pair to get the discount (if you're buying in-store or online). There may be even more savings available if you are upgrading from a top-loading washer or dryer in the form of rebates from your utility companies (power and water). This varies by region, but the washing machine qualifies for a PG&E rebate worth up to $75.
Best Buy also has the following major appliances on sale this week:
Free ship-to-store, but, unfortunately, no true free shipping. Shipping ruins the deal, so, when you checkout, make sure to select "Store Pick-Up" and select your nearest store to take advantage of these early Black Friday prices!
A lot of people are wondering whether Best Buy will be having secret "unadvertised" sales again this year and I believe the answer is yes. Unfortunately, Best Buy won't tell us anything (or even confirm/deny that they will be doing another unadvertised sale this year), so we probably won't hear anything about the deals until sometime midway through next week. One thing is for certain though, if they want to steer traffic away from Walmart and Target, they're going to need to do something between now and Black Friday.

We just posted the 104-item Black Friday sales information. The "Morning Sale" specials and are valid on 5am to 1pm on Black Friday (11/27) and 8am to 1pm the following Saturday (11/28). After 1pm, the prices are slightly higher.
Thanks to Sailor Mickey for supplying the adscans.
There is a rumored Apple Black Friday Advertisement promotional flyer going around the internet (see image to the right) that states the following sales:
Up to 30% off all iPods (iPod Shuffle excluded)
Up to 25% off all Macs
Up to 15% off all accessories, Apple software and Apple hardware
First, the advertisement isn't entirely convincing. If you take a look at the advertisement, look at how "lumpy" the red ribbon on the left is. When you consider how professional the rest of the advertisement looks, doesn't the ribbon seem a bit sloppy?
Second, last year Apple was supposed to be aggressive on Black Friday and some even expected $100 off a few Mac models. The actual discounts? $51 off their $999 entry-level MacBook, $101 off their newest unibody MacBooks and varied $51 or $101 discounts on their aluminum iMac desktops ranging from $1148 to $1698.
