Didn't change to Best Buy Elite status

Curious why my best buy status didn't change to elite after 2017, I went through and added up all my purchases and they totaled $2,429.75 which is well above the $1500 threshold.

Re: Didn't change to Best Buy Elite status

Hi Rob191288,


Welcome to the Best Buy forum!


I set a goal of reaching Elite status each year because I want the option to BANK points but always seem to fall short.  Let's see if I can do it in 2018.  A member would need to spend $1,500 on eligible purchases within a single calendar year to qualify for Elite status.  Are you positive all of the purchases you made in 2017 were eligible?  Please keep in mind that sales tax and any portion of a purchase that is paid for with a gift card or rewards certificates is excluded.  Also, an employee purchase would not count.  I noticed while looking over your My Best Buy™ account that you are an employee of Best Buy.


I will be sending you a private message shortly so that I can go over that aspect of the program with you in additional detail.  To read private messages, you will first want to login to the forum and then click on the little yellow envelope icon that is located at the very top of the page.  I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day.


Thank you for being a My Best Buy™ member. Smiley Happy
