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

WHAT IF it's Black Friday deals but a month early ;D

One can dream. But yeah I'm pretty sure it'll be deals like 2x points and junk

There may be something good. Best buy sales are the only ones with potential surprises, not like amazon where everything is $7 off msrp.

LMAO.

There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here,

it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable...

 

 

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I got grandfathered in to this tier from a Silver membership, so maybe BB will get more of my money this year.

The single best aspect of their Elite or Silver or whatever status they call it is getting early online access to their Black Friday deals. I mean, it inevitably crushes their web site, but I've gotten awesome deals without ever having to go to the store.

Yes, this, and the occasional expedited shipping for $5 games. So you will use the service 2-3 times tops in a given year, generally.

Early online BF access, does that included the surprise "real" mystery door busters?

 

I remember reading something abouth them not including and those are only instore.

I'm ready to be disappointed. Probably just double/triple points on everything and "special offers" on things I am not looking to purchase.

With sooo many people sharing their elite plus benefits this year (here and on SD) the competition is gonna be ridiculou!.  Good luck getting in on any of the super good deals and expect their servers to crash for sure.

Everything they've said so far suggests that Elite Plus will get even earlier access than mine run Elite, so the gifted status shouldn't make much difference. They do crash every year during the early access period. I hope they've got some cloud scaling this year.

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