Good morning, Lanamichelle124,
All of the deals scheduled to be part of the Early Access event should be live. We should have additional deals available later in the week on Thanksgiving Day.
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Well Best Buy we have been Elite or Elite Plus for somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-7 years or more. This will be the last year. I used to buy everything at Best Buy I could just to make sure I would make it again and have early black Friday access. You have now made it pointless. Good job. Lost a VERY loyal customer today.

Being an Elite Plus member find this very disappointing and an insult towards my loyalty towards Best Buy. Guess I will just use up my Best Buy reward points this season where Best Buy still has the best deal, but matching deals I will spent my money purchasing from Amazon, Gamestop and Target.

Happy Early Access! As Derek's mentioned before, please leave this thread for questions about the event, such as if you are trying to participate but are running into a problem or want to check to see if a specific deal is available, then please post those here.
You may post suggestions or ideas for next year's Early Access event to IdeaX.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Derek has been doing this for several years. He does not make up the rules and every year gets the brunt of all the stuff people have to say. Members stating that they are done shopping with a store for making a poor choice is bad all around. We need our Brick and Mortar stores to stay in business. Where I'm at the Computer stores are all disappearing. Frys Electronics is pretending it's not going out of business but their stores are empty and not being restocked. We don't have a lot of choices and, as loathe as I am to go into my local Best Buy which is manned by kids that don't care, have no training or just plain ignore you; I still go to support them.
That said Derek, it has to be understood what a poor choice Best Buy made this year. Pretending there was going to be an Eary Access sale for elite members and then just having a regular event that anyone can participate in is naturally going to upset all the regular members. How could it not. I see by signing in there is supposed to give extra options that others don't see but, I can't find any actual difference at least from what I had on my list. I even tried calling a friend to see if he saw the same prices as I know he isn't a member and he does.
As many others have posted, it was a great feature to get games/movies and smaller items earlier than the rush where everything is gone in five minutes. It means this year maybe the dollars get spread around to other stores but, I would still encourage people to shop at their local stores than support Amazon who is slowly pushing everyone out of business.

Hi there, mrkish,
Thank you for shopping with us during our Early Access event! The TV Doorbusters are certainly enticing, so I understand your interest in the Insignia 58-inch TV. Currently, this would not appear to be available during this event.
Check back starting around 12:00 a.m. (midnight) on Thanksgiving Day (Wednesday night, Thursday morning) when we tend to have additional Black Friday deals available on BestBuy.com. Please also keep in mind that major doorbusters would need to be purchased in-store.
