Early Pre-Orders for Silver Members

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎07-07-2012 11:29 AM

I think that Silver Members should be able to pre-order games before anyone else.  I wanted to pre-order one of the limited edition Borderlands 2 games and was unable to.  I believe Silver Members should be able to pre-order any game at least a week prior to anyone else.

Would any other Reward Zone Premiere Silver members like to see this?

yes i would think so, it would be very beneficial to them.  it would also help out with other customers wanting to reach the $2,500 tier to become a silver member.  share this with other silver members!

Yes, actually to be honest take this even further RZ silver members should have Early access to ALL OFFERS & PROMOS along with extended access to some too.


 call this "PREMIER ACCESS" I know the demand for the early access to black Friday deals has your site buzzing so think of this happening on a weekly basis. We should be able to get in on all the weeks daily deals starting on Sat. night @ 10 pm lasting till 1 am EST. Same things goes with price drops we should get an email alert for any items on our Premier Access list PRIOR to the sale/drop. We should be able to have 1st crack at the deals. We've already proved that we're more than willing to purchase so this wouldn't be a wasted perk.

yes i agree, give us access to the next weeks deals and promos starting that saturday night, i'm sure this would go over greatly with other silver members as well.

Problem with that is, we would lose a lot of sales due to "sorry, you are not a silver member, you are unable to preorder this yet". To which the customer would go "kk, gamestop then". :/

As someone who can't afford to be a silver member but frequently preorders popular, this would make me preorder elsewhere.

Even though I'm a premier silver member, I don't think it's fair to limit pre-ordering games for other RZ members and the general public. IMHO, such a program would do more harm than good for Best Buy. Maybe, rewarding Premier Silver members with bonus RZ points when they pre-order to Best Buy might be a better idea.
