Very rarely do our Private Shopping Events have anything to do with gaming (and if it is, it's normally Wii or some crap), but if you're looking for other electronics I bet there will be some good stuff.

I've been to 2 of these over the last year and for me, they're worthless. I guess if you were already going to buy a TV from Best Buy it'd be worth going to get the extra points, but the deals are a total letdown, and like VyseArcad1a said, they never put games/media on sale.

Hmm.. are there items on sale during this? Or is it just the double points offer and a raffle?

I agree. I went to one and the best part was free popcorn. If you were going to make a large purchase it would be definitely worth it for the points, but if you are looking for good deals you will be disappointed.

What about those giftcards they pass out? Might be worth going just for that, unless it's a time-sensitive thing and you have to spend it right then and there.

A couple of times, they've broken street date and offered DVD/BluRays before they're supposed to go on sale. (I specifically remember Hancock being one that was offered 3 weeks before street date at one of these events.)

I know it's CAG heresy, but I almost might be willing to pay retail price to get my hands on 'Dark Knight Rises' a couple of days early.

They have you going around the store to various stations answering questions via text message which enters you in a raffle. Since they give out a card every 10 to 15 minutes you have very good chance of winning depending on how many are actually participating. And no its a standard gift card that you use at anytime.

The last few times the Microsoft rep was nice enough to give out a bunch of points and live cards. I think I got a 12 month card and 4000 point card last time. As well I got a digital version of Halo CE and Fable 3. The time before that I got a few Kinect games and 1600 point cards, just for being there during the event.

So it can be worth it depending on if your store has the reps there.

FWIW, back during the Wii launch period, the Reward Zone private events would occasionally have a portion of a Wii shipment held in reserve to satisfy Reward Zone shoppers at the event.

There may not be any gaming deals at the event, but if it proves difficult to lay hands on a Wii-U and you haven't preordered, the RZ event may be an opportunity to secure one.

Thanks, that's what I thought. Might be worth going out for this. The last time this same promo was going on, neither of my 2 closest stores participated.

On a semi-related note: has anyone heard mention of the RZ Silver early access Black Friday sale they've been doing for the last couple of years? I just realized today how close Turkey Day/BF are!

Thanks for explaining that, I was trying to figure out what a "digital" scavenger hunt was, thought I might of needed a smart phone and some special app or something.

Wait, we get access to the BF deals on Monday? Or are they different deals, or only a select few BF deals?

90-95% of the BF sale items were on the site. Some sold fast some were there for a little while.

Although some RZ silver members got backorder cancelations while people who ordered on BF got theirs (guess who ordered first in those instances).

You get RZ points when you buy the giftcards so yes you are correct you will not get any points when you redeem your giftcard.

Yeah, I can second that the BF early access sale has been pretty sweet for the last few years, and last year's in particular had almost everything available at one point, save for the super-big doorbusters like the $199 40" Sharp LCD they had. Most of the tablets/laptops, movies, and games were available early; I was even able to get the 24" Dynex LCD for $79.99 from the early event. I really had no reason to even step into BB on Black Friday, except for the fact that I always do. Looking forward to something similar on Monday.

Never been. I see they have a raffle for a $25 GC, and something huge like 50,000 RZ points, but do they have actual sales? Or is this the fun part of the event?
