Just because the servers are opened does not mean everyone but us has the game.
According to what I have read even if the servers are opend up the game will not be playable until 12am EST
So even if I pick it up tonight at 8:30 CST I still won't be able to play it for another 2.5 hours.
Early pick up at least allows you to load the game before it goes live.

Well that is unethical of Bethesda to do that.
It is not Best Buy keeping you from getting the game from them. It is Bethesda.
But at least your getting the $10 reward and your friends are not.

You should be able to pickup at 8pm local time Nov 13th (today). It's listed on Best Buy's event page.

According to GameStop's official Twitter page, Bethesda has not only opened the game's servers early, but allowed them to sell it several hours in advance. Either Best Buy hasn't been given the okay to sell yet, or they're determined to make their pre-launch event a success.
Personally, I'm just going to wait it out and hope for the best. Yeah, it'd be great to play it early and it ticks me off to see some friends playing it already, but that Steelbook. I'm not giving up that Steelbook! The $10 reward certificate is nice too.
