Good afternoon Hwong,
As you will read in prior responses in this thread, the dedicated phone line is for My Best Buy™ specific questions. Our members with Elite and Elite Plus status can call that line directly when they have questions about their account rather than calling 1-888-BESTBUY with the majority of our members. If you were to call that line with questions about order status or an appliance delivery, then there is a good chance your call will be transferred over to another team that specifically handles those sort of calls. The phone number is not public to help prevent a lot of those misdirected calls.
I would strongly suggest posting any ideas that you have for Best Buy or the My Best Buy™ program to the IdeaX section of the forum. That would allow other members who feel the same way to cast their vote. If one of your ideas were to get enough votes, then it would at some point be forwarded up the chain of command for proper review. There are quite a few ideas that Best Buy has implemented into everyday business that were first posted to IdeaX. That would be your best bet when you want to add a couple cents to the donation box.
I hope that you have a great weekend, and thank you for being a My Best Buy™ member.

Having seen this on bestbuy.com:
24/7 Customer Service Line
My Best Buy members can call Customer Care 24/7 at 1-888-BEST BUY with questions about membership, points, certificates, and more.
Elite and Elite Plus Customer Service. Elite and Elite Plus members have access to dedicated customer service help at a special phone number found on their membership card.
I of course read this to be a special service number that did not involve the first level customer service that seems to be outsourced. As I am having a problem with a camera that is mysteriously 150 miles away in a warehouse but can not be shipped due to weather(????). So it will be 6 days in making it to my local store. No hurricanes in FL right now, and thunderstorms are a daily occurrence and do not affect business to any great degree. But no one seems to know what is the reason the camera is delayed, or even where it is.
Searching the forum I have seen Derek-BBY numerous posts about privately messaging him for the secret number, then the last few include a disclaimer about how it is only for the Elite program. Really what is the point of that? Not sure there is a real need for that service; and if most people interpret that the web-site says that the enhanced benefit is a special number to assist in resolving issues with the program I would be surprised. Seems like people are hoping to have extra service for being good customers.
Please find someone who acts like they care that customers want products in their local stores and can give a real answer to the status of an order. Secondly if you are going to rely on automation make it work, and have a way for a live person to assist a customer when issues occur.

Do not let the marketing fool you, you get no special attention or support as an Elite Plus member. It is easier dealing with a rental car company in a 3rd world country than it is Best Buy.

I'm an Elite member (becoming Elite Plus with pending points) and been wondering what the dedicated number for the hotline is.
As it's not on my current card can anyone send the number to me?
Thx in advance,

I will follow-up with you shortly. 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 am an elite plus member. I purchased an item on 10/08/17 and it is on sale this week for 30.00 cheaper... I called the dedicated line for elite plus members and spoke with someone in order to see about getting the difference back because I can't make it to the store this weekend and the sale might end Saturday. She could not look up my order because she said she could only look up online orders. She said she could transfer me to someone who could look up the in store purchases. I waited on hjold 5 minutes and the same lady said the person she was going to transfer me to had hung up... ok ... while =on hold I pulled up the purchase on my phone and gave her the number associated with purchase. She said sais she still couldn't find it and told me to call the store to get the difference. My questions are... is this normal that reps are not able to look up in store purchases? Also what is the point of having this dedicated line if I can see more things on my phone than they, a best buy elite plus representative, can see on their computer? It is very concerning that they cannot see all that I can see as a customer. Either that, or the rep was incompetent.
