Hi there 26kvgenie,
Welcome to the forum! When spending a large sum, it is great to know what to expect from your My Best Buy membership. To clarify, the purchase that pushes you across the $1500 threshold to Elite status would not receive Elite rewards. It can take 15-20 days for your tier status to update, the same time frame it takes your points to post. Purchases made after your tier status has upgraded should receive points at the Elite rate (1 point per $1) and you should be able to utilize your other Elite benefits.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
