Why do cag members pretend to be above SD and then constantly prove that they visit that site as well?

1. SDers frequently boast about things CAGs (hopefully) never do, like returning things bought at sale prices from some stores to Walmart without a receipt to get more cash back (return fraud).

2. Believe it or not, SD occasionally beats CAG to the punch in posting gaming-related deals, so it helps to visit every now and then in case some deal slipped through the proverbial cracks.

Even before the current tiers, I never came close to hitting the requirement for premiere silver. They just sort of gave it to me, and have renewed it for the several years since, with me shopping there less and less.

I'm Elite Plus. No idea how, but won't argue. I used to spend a LOT in there but my spending has slowed thanks to bills.

You must have tiny TVs?

On your side of the argument you could buy about 17 of those ps3 displays when they had them for what 200 or less?

I look forward to seeing what's in store (pun not intended) I don't know how I got Elite Plus but I do till Jan2015 but my little yellow bar shows I need to spend 389$ more? Also the most expensive item I ever bought from bestbuy was a 200$ projector the rest I gues was all trade ins.

I have Elite Plus, it's easy to get if you have a Best Buy credit card but I don't find it worth having.

One of the perks of Elite Plus is the pyramid sch... Feature they implemented where you can gift a membership to three friends or family. If the sales end up not being crap, I can offer my last slot up on the 24th.

Does anyone have a link to the actual sale?  I'm a Elite Plus member but I can't find any information about this event aside from the picture the OP posted.

Just spent roughly $6,000 on a new washer, dryer and refrigerator back in August. Would be nice if this actually panned out to be something worthwhile. Judging from people's responses in here tho, I guess I shouldn't get my hopes up. Haven't been an Elite Plus member for a few years now so I am not familiar with these promotions at all. Oh well, wasn't even expecting it so no loss really if its garbage.

other than the obvious reasons people are premiere silver yada yada listed above like washer and dryer etc.. Also easy to get if you share the benefits. IE. my two sisters and their families, my parents, myself, and a couple friends all use my account. mainly because they can't be bothered to sign up for a card lol. So just offer free shipping and longer returns to people =P

These events are never good so I'll go in with low expectations.

Yeah, I've gone to three of these, and the best deal I've gotten was the free flashlight pen as part of a drawing.

I was not here for that but that's hilarious.

 

So anyone have an example of games/deals in last year's early access?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I don't have any information on what will be included in the event. Just make sure your MyBBY Elite Plus account is properly linked to your BestBuy.com account. You don't want to encounter issues getting the deals if they do happen to be good.

 

I think this is a first for Best Buy, most of the other premiere silver/elite plus events have been in-store only while this is online. (except for the annual black friday early access)

The only early access deal last year was getting in on some of the Black Friday deals early. So they were really good deals, but I seem to remember a half hour of refreshing and aggravation before getting the one deal I wanted.

I have not been able to place a video game order with any type of payment method recently. I think other items as well not sure. When I did it over the phone the lady said they put some hold on all videogames that you had to use a credit card to verify you are an adult or some shit idk. But here is to hopping the site wont screw me.

Is there usually a preview of the (preview) event? Or does the page just get refreshed with all of the deals once it goes live?

Is there a link to follow for when this goes live? I'm Elite Plus but never got any email about this event.  Also, what time is it supposed to start?

 

Thanks!

That is only for Elite status, not Elite Plus. Those "gifted" with Elite status (shouldn't) have access to this sale.

100% wrong. I just ordered a game last week. Final Fantasy XIII-2 for $10 from the BBY site and paid it 100% off in gift cards. I also bought three $10 PSN cards for store pickup on Monday and paid that off 100% with GC.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
