Elite to elite plus

I'm $500 away from an elite plus member. I'm about to make a $3500 purchase. Will this 1 purchase accumulate points with $500 spent as an elite(1pt per $1) then remaining $3000 as elite plus(1.25pt per $1)?

Re: Elite to elite plus

Hello, Frox,

 

Welcome to the Best Buy forum. Smiley Happy

 

You are $500 closer to reaching Elite Plus status than I have will be.  Congrats on the potential future upgrade, and great question!  The amount of points a purchase is eligible for would depend on the member's My Best Buy™ status at the time of purchase.  If you were to have Elite status, then the purchase would be eligible for 1 point for every $1 spent pre-tax.  Your future purchases would be eligible for 1.25 points per $1 after your status has officially been upgraded to Elite Plus, which can take up to 20 days.  Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

My Best Buy™ - Program Terms

 

Elite Plus members receive 1.25 points for every $1 spent on qualifying purchases when using a My Best Buy member account at Participating Properties. You become a My Best Buy program Elite Plus member by spending $3,500 at Best Buy or BestBuy.com or spending $3,500 on your My Best Buy Visa during a calendar year. A My Best Buy program member qualifies for Elite Plus status approximately 15–20 days after the member spends a total of $3,500 on qualifying purchases

 

Best Wishes,

Re: Elite to elite plus

Thanks for the quick response & clarification. I guess spending an additional $500 on something else & waiting up to 20 days just to bump up to elite plus status then purchasing, in my situation a long awaited 65" q90r, just for the extra 0.25 in points is just not worth my time & money. Order is in progress & can't wait to have it delivered, hopefully in great condition considering it's long travel to Hawaii. Thanks again

Re: Elite to elite plus

I wouldn't be able to wait either!  My wife and I recently purchased a new 65" Samsung TV and I basically stared out the front door waiting for the delivery team to show up.  Not a lot can beat the purchase of a new TV.  Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Enjoy the new TV!
