Explanatory Note


This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends the registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed December 30, 2004, as amended by the registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed on February 25, 2005, to reflect that Ernst & Young LLP has been dismissed as the registrant’s independent auditor.


Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.


On May 10, 2005, contemporaneously with the conclusion of the audit for its fiscal year ended February 26, 2005, Ernst & Young LLP (E&Y) was dismissed as the independent auditor for Best Buy Co., Inc. The registrant previously announced that the Audit Committee of its Board of Directors and E&Y had determined that E&Y would be dismissed as the registrant’s independent auditor, effective at the conclusion of such audit. The registrant also previously announced that it named Deloitte & Touche LLP as its independent auditor for the fiscal year which began February 27, 2005.


The reports of E&Y on the consolidated financial statements of the registrant for the fiscal years ended February 26, 2005 and February 28, 2004 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles. In connection with the audits for the two most recent fiscal years and through the date of dismissal, there were no disagreements with E&Y on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of E&Y, would have caused E&Y to make reference thereto in their reports on the financial statements for such fiscal years. During the two most recent fiscal years and through the date of dismissal, there have been no “reportable events,” as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.


The registrant provided E&Y with a copy of this disclosure and requested that E&Y furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of E&Y’s letter, dated May 10, 2005, is filed as Exhibit 16 to this Current Report on Form 8-K/A.


Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
