Holy cow, just found out that I am elite status this year. So will this laptop be back in stock? I didn't know that it was an early deal, and missed it. Also, do most of the games on sale for Black Friday carry over to Cyber Monday? And do either work with GCU?

I feel ya man, after all these years dedicated to best buy and trying to maintain elite plus, I feel like they just do bare minimum for us sometimes. Every year I just want a few games and movies that have already been out for awhile and even those are out of stock sometimes. Hopefully they will improve inventory for us early birds. Hell 3500 is a lot to spend to be treated like a crap customer. Last year I'll ever be able to afford this

Hello once again AceJohn,
It is so nice of you to join us again this year. Yes, the event was moved to Sunday this year with the hope that more of our members could participate. We had received feedback over the years that members were unable to participate due to work. This may not end up being a permanent change but we shall see. I hope that you are able to order everything your heart desires. While I know you are a veteran of the Early Access event, please let Tasha or I know if you have any questions.

Welcome to the Best Buy forum, and congrats on reaching Elite status!
I have been trying to reach Elite status for years but never get all that close. The plan of talking my wife into purchasing more stuff is in the works, but not going all that well. I will keep trying though. Please take a moment to read over the FAQ on the first page if you have not done so already. It lists some of the more common questions to pop-up as we approach the event.
Q: What deals in the Black Friday ad will be available during the event?
A: The majority of the deals should be available, including a number of doorbusters. The in-store only doorbusters will not be available though. We cannot provide any specifics until the event goes live.

You would want to send a private message if you are looking to obtain the Elite/Elite Plus dedicated phone #. You can send one here. Please make sure to include your name, phone #, and email address.

It looks like I missed part of your question. As far as video games in the Black Friday ad, I cannot confirm what may or may not be available during Cyber Monday. The same would apply to the Early Access event. Those details would not be made available to us until each event is live. The 20% discount that members with an active Gamers Club Unlocked (GCU) membership are eligible would not apply to items available during the Early Access event or Black Friday.

How will be the early access price different than "Black Friday Price" listed on website? If "Black Friday Price" is available now on website (for everybody) then what will be benefit of early access? thanks

Welcome to the Best Buy forum!
You are going to find a lot more of the Black Friday ad items (excluding in-store only doorbusters where a ticket is required) available during the Early Access event on Sunday. Rather than trying to navigate the store with hundreds of other customers on Thanksgiving, you can jump on BestBuy.com from the comfort of your couch and grab some of the Black Friday deals before everyone else.

i was wondering how long it was going take someone to say they took off work for monday for the event. i think bestbuy should have let people know they changed the date months ago for the simple fact they should have thought about people taking off work would have to let there employeer know alot times a month or more in advance. i also want state as for the elite and elite plus line that has not worked since it was reward zone back when the number was completely separate from customer service while it not no more and also dont know why there still calling it 24/7 because its not anymore used to be you called at 1 am you talked to someone now you call the elite number at 1 am you got message say 24/7 line will be open during regular business hours.
