Separate or priority Early Black Friday Shopping Event for Elite Plus members

Status: Tell Us More
by AceJohn on ‎10-21-2013 01:16 AM

The last couple of years the Early Black Friday Shopping has been nothing but frustrating.  Instead of rewarding the loyal and big spending customers the event caused nothing but misery and complaints for most.  The congestion and traffic was supposed to be handled better last year from the debacle the year before.  It was still bad if not worse.  With the addition of three invites for anyone to obtain Elite status, I don't see the Event for this year running any better.  My idea is to have a separate event or priority for Elite Plus members for this year's event.  This would reward the best customers for the year while helping with congestion and traffic for the Early Shopping Event.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this! I'm confident you are not the only Elite Plus member that would like earlier access than other members, but I would like to hear from other members what they think about this idea. Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.

I agree 100%.  I have been a silver premier member for 5 or 6 years straight.  And I am now Elite Plus and have alrady qualified for Elite Plus for next year.

 

They should also have a special level for those that stay in that bracket for consequitive years.

 

Personally I will not go to Best Buy on Black Friday before 3 or 4 in the afternoon.  I tried once a number of years ago saw the line 2 hours before open and went to Circuit City instead.   I went into the store around 10am on BF one time and I could not believe how long the check out line was.

 

Now BB did have some silver rewards online shopping before Black Friday but that was an extream joke.  The servers could not handel the traffic.  I finally got what I wanted and it was in stock but the system was so hung up that by the time it reacted to my putting it in the cart it was gone.

I agree. I have been a Silver/elite+ member for many years and I appreciate the extras for loyal customers. I was anoter frustrated with the past 2 early BF events. Iwas able to get a couple items but missed out on a dozen more that I would have purchased.

 

Now you have a promotion allowing members to send elite status to 3 people. I have a bad feeling this is going to congest the early black Friday even more than previous years. 

 

Offering Elite + members early access (example: Sunday before the normal Early BF for 4-6 hrs) would reward your most loyal customers and free up online traffic for the normal early BF event

As a long-time RewardZone member, I would really want this. Best Buy needs my money now more than ever since WalMart and Target now have price-matching and deal-matching and I'd rather buy a stack of 20 Blu-Rays or a new TV at Best Buy than the other guys. You don't even have to do it at every store, just pick a great high-end flagship location in each "area" - these were called "Barry Stores" at one point - and lock that store down for all but RZ customers for Black Friday, offering special deals and incentives for all RZ members, with special ones for Elite/Elite+ members.
