Elite, Elite+ "In Stock" notification

Status: Acknowledged

Is there a way that Elite and Elite Plus could have a "product notification" option? So far, being Elite or Elite Plus hasn't really had much benefit.

Of course I'm talking about popular and (usually) "out of stock" items (current hot PS5, XBX, RTX 30xx).


It just seems to be a pretty basic option that all customers should enjoy, Elite or not. BB can certainly "Beta" test on Elite customers, I'm OK with that. XD

Well the benefits of Elite and Elite plus are extended return periods.


Access to some events and some sales early. 


Better Rewards % percentage


Special Offers and sales


You can bank your points 


And it is free to join. 


But haviing special access is not going to change the microchip shortage.

I do realize the frustration people are having over not being able to get a new console, but people everywhere are having that issue.


However, I would think techincally in order to do something like that Best Buy would need to have  paid membership.

That's disappointing. As I started, and after reading responses from similar requests: There is absolutely zero benefit, for me, on being Elite or Elite Plus.
