Elite Plus Benefit Suggestion

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎10-01-2020 12:16 PM

I'd like to make a suggestion: similar to the Black Friday Early Access, I think this round of pre-orders and ongoing graphics cards madness has made it obvious that it would be a huge benefit if Elite Plus members were given first shot at pre-orders for in demand items.  It would also combat the number of bots scooping up these products when known customers with a track record of spending money at Best Buy could have access to them.  Obviously, limit one per Elite Plus account, and say it's a 24 hour window before remaining orders are opened to the general public.

Interesting suggestion. Would anyone else like to see this? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

It is expected that the so called bots scooping up the new GPU's are doing so to resell. 

 

I think an issue with the idea could be that there are a number of people out there who have elite status who get it because they buy a number of things on sale and resell them.  Some are actually legitimate in that they are buying for a company they work for, and getting tons of rewards. But that is against the policy. 

 

Personally I have gained the highest tier of status for next year already, but I do not see a legitimate need for elite plus members to get an extra special treatment.
