Is the sale today the Early Access sale for Elite and Elite Plus members? If so, it's a joke compared to the sales in the past. Almost none of the movies are reduced as well as video games. In the past, you could purchase pretty much anything outside of doorbusters at the Black Friday prices. I hope there's a better sale coming early next week like the ones in the past. Otherwise it's pretty pointless for me to continue to be an Elite Plus member. The early access Black Friday sale has always been the biggest benefit for me.

Couldn't agree more. Here's what im doing and others should as well. When Bestbuy goes live next Friday Amazon will likely match their prices automatically.
I will not continue to be an Elite Plus member after this absolutely horrendous "special" shopping event that used to offer virtually the entire ad early to us. Whats the point in me spending 5k a year to have no early announcement as to when the event is, then have absolutely nothing worth buying available?
With my business gone and I'm sure countless others it's sad, but I guarantee Best buy won't survive losing the regular business of people who have been loyal despite the emergence ease of online shopping with amazon.

I was wondering the same thing. Is this the pre Black Friday sale for Elite and Elite Plus memebers? The comments state there are more items for Elite and Elite Plus members but I am not seeing it??

As in years past, please know that not all Black Friday deals will be available during the Early Access event, and we would be unable to confirm which ones are available to whom. You should be able to view the deals available to you by logging into Bestbuy.com. You can also check back starting around 12 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day (Wednesday night into Thursday morning) when we should have more deals available on BestBuy.com.
As Derek and I have requested, please keep this thread to questions surrounding the event, such as if you're having trouble participating or have a question about a particular offer. Suggestions and ideas for next year's Early Access event can be posted to our IdeaX page.

Tasha, I realize you are just doing your job in trying to keep the peace in here. Me personally, I would prefer to know up-front what will be made available to us Elite/Elite Plus members online so we can plan ahead and not waste our valuable time. I do not believe this to be asking too much. Some of us don't have the luxury to sit around our PC's clicking refresh to see if something may become available. A little transparency goes a long way.

Currently all the deals that would be available during this event should be live. If you are not seeing a deal currently available, you may want to check back later this week as more deals will become available on Thanksgiving Day.

I am an Elite Plus Member and have been participating in Best Buys early access since you started it. This year is unfortunate given the experience of years past where I could order almost the entire ad if I wanted. This year the items I am the most interested in are not part of this early access sale.
If I am now losing the ability to purchase any of the Black Friday items early then what is the point in ensuring most of my spend during the year goes to Best Buy so I can remain an Elite Plus member. Best Buy you have made a significant misstep with this years approach.
I am wondering if you even listen to those of us indicating the same thing on this forum? All of us expected the same experience and didn't get it. We do have alternatives to where we spend our $$.

This year's Early Access Sale is just pitiful compared to others of the past. In fact, it's barely a sale at all this year.. What a shame because I looking forward to this sale all year long and it was the biggest driving factor of my belonging to the elite club. However, I guess Best Buy no longer values it's elite members the same anymore and this is their way of relaying that message.
