Basically everyone with a BB account can check out a certain amount of the deals early for shipping or store pickup. On Friday the rest of the deals will be active and shopable in store without having to do an online order.


Awesome dude, thanks. I was worried Elite members were early access or something

I was hoping for some $24-30 Switch game deals, like they did with Wii U titles last time.

GCU prices will not work unless it glitches in the first couple of minutes of when the sale goes live. GCU is dead, for me at least, mine expired today.I also heard from an employee that even those w GCU until 2020 will hear the bad news when they cancel it entirely by the end of this year. But I hope it's just a rumor.. Good luck

Anything of note blu ray wise?

Also like to know this...particularly 4K Blu-Rays.

Third-ing a request for the 4K UHD's on sale.

(Side note, glitch or no glitch, Ready Player One on UHD looks amazing.)

In for the halo games. Will now finally get a chance to play through them all.

Halo 5 is available on Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft has confirmed that MCC will be available at a later date. Just a heads up if you prefer that method of playing them.

Same here.  Kind of hoping Rhythm Heaven Megamix is part of the deal since I missed it on Black Friday.

After ending GCU, BB better have some good glitches pop up. Their video game sales have been abymsal.

I'm with you. Hoping they just go ahead and call it the "Summer Glitch Sale"...I'd be into it.

How's the community for the Master Chief Collection? A lot of people playing Halo 2 and 3 MP?

So early access is no longer only for Elite members?

I played about a month ago and had no trouble getting into matches quickly.

It's not BOOMING but I've never had any trouble getting in a game.

The 4k+revamp/uber-fix patch should be coming in the next few months, and the game is coming to Gamepass. That should boost the player count substantially.

No Playstation games??

Really hoping PS4 titles are included with the * at the bottom of the list. 

My GCU is dying from lack of use...

Thanks for the heads up! Honestly though it wasn't happening at this point. 

 

Seems like the sale is highly dependent on what is in the "50% off select games" section.

Sounds like you haven't used it much since it hasn't worked on BF the last two years.

How is state of decay 2? I haven't played the first and I'm curious for anyone that has played it.

I've been playing it on the game pass and love it. It's very addictive. I never played the first one.

So if you own the first one is the base game the way to go or the ultimate edition?

I couldn't say because I'm not sure the difference but the base game will keep me busy for a long time. I might eventually try some of the add on stuff.

That would be really upsetting if true. The right thing for Best buy would be to least refund everybody affected.

I always got GCU on black friday prices, you just had to wait til night time for the GCU lock to end and while the black friday prices were still live, the magical in between time.

Last year every game that was on sale for BF seemed to go lower in the weeks after, with GCU applying as well.
